Pyrometer brings up a really good point ... the frost nerfs seem to be aimed at frost PvP and in true Blizzard fashion, they are more willing to kill a APEC as PvE viable in order to balance it's PvP counterpart. I've seen lots of complaints from frost PvE players on the forums, yet these are of course ignored. Personally, I've been playing my Mage since the days of vanilla WoW. I've rolled in all three trees and primarily played PvE with casual PvP. Of all the specs, I like the current iteration of frost the best, I just like the play style. Arcane is too bland with AB spam to be fun for me, and Fire is ... to use someone else's description ... too twitchy and reliant on RNG. I don't mind that my DPS is potentially a little lower, as long as I'm within 1k of the fire mage in the raid, I feel I'm contributing well. But if Frost continues to be nerfed, I will be forced to roll with a spec I don't like as much, or to not use my Mage. I just really wish that Blizzard would listen to good ideas coming from the Mage community for solutions. It really seems that they don't listen at all. How about taking something from the Warlock mastery book - I know, I know, wrong place to point to on Arcane Brilliance - and instead of making frost mastery a large buff against frozen targets, just make it a flat buff to frost damage period? Keep it simple, get away from the weird mixture of CC+Damage mechanics and all the complicated math associated therin, and perhaps balancing a spec that many players LIKE to play won't be such a problem?I'm sorry for mentioning warlocks as a potential solution source, Christian, I really am. I will log on this afternoon and deep freeze ten warlocks as a penance.
