This is going to sound crazy but it makes me laugh and has some cool imagery when I think about it. How about making wands count as a weapon instead of having its own slot and having an autoshot while you were casting. Now make arcane mages the masters of the wand. They would have wand damage increase, attack speed increases and be the only mages able to dual wield wands at higher levels. There is your mobility. Add a couple cool spell procs based off your wand attacks and poof, a unique way to cast spells. The cool thing is arcane would be super flexible, able to bring many different damage types of wands depending on the encounter. You could keep decent DPS with wands while casting at other targets too. Downfall would be vulnerable to disarming in PvP. I'm not saying all damage comes from wands, just makes a different way of having constant mobile dps with a new mechanic. I dunno, I think blizzard could make something like that fun to play. I would definitely give it a shot.

There used to be a talent called wand specialization. It got removed.

That's a cool idea with the making Arcane dual wield wands!I mean, we have all these spare wands lying around, it'd be great id we needed two of them, it'd really help deal with the wand surplus!!!

Dual wands? Do I feel some Song of the Sorcelator coming on?
