I'm not sure how long your heroic fights are taking, but remember that arcane has the top burst of any dps spec in the game. The problem is sustaining that burst. What that means is the shorter the fight, the more effective arcane will be. The longer the fight, the worse arcane is. As everyone gets geared up in heroics, including yourself, you'll find arcane better for those shorter heroic fights.This also will happen in raid fights eventually. Arcane mages started dominating world of logs at the end of wrath because raid dps was so high, some boss fights were lasting under 2 minutes.Fire dps will definitely go up and become more steady with better gear however. Not enough data on the 4.06a changes yet to see how that has affected arcane. It got seriously buffed so we'll have to see how that plays out in terms of dps.
