I love the fire changes, I absolutely ADORE the changes made to Frost (with the exception of the extreme uselessness of Blizzard now), but I am appalled at the state of Arcane.I just cannot believe what they've done to the spec. They had it so close to sounding awesome with the idea that Arcane Barrage would trigger AM. That would remove every aspect of the spec that I hated (the extreme RNG dependance). Now the AB stacks don't even affect AM or AB damage? I mean, wasn't that the whole point of Arcane Blast in the first place?I'm currently duel-specced Fire and Frost now, and that is damn sure not changing when this patch drops. Arcane had such potential....now it's just more of the same boring rotation I got sick of a long time ago.

I was wondering this too. Arcane is by far my favorite spec and will remain so, but is it true that AB won't effect AM or ArcBar anymore? I understand that's how it works on PTR atm, but what about Beta? And what about the idea that ArcBar wouldn't consume AB charges anymore?If anyone can confirm these as what is intended, I would deeply appreciate it. I don't want to have to start getting into the Fire/Frost mindset in order to raid/pvp in Cata, but I will if necessary...
