As far as I can tell, CombustionHelper seems to still think that Ignite should proc from periodic effects. I noticed that it was reporting munched Ignites from my FFB DoT when it shouldn't be proccing Ignite at all (and didn't). Hopefully that will be fixed.Arcane is still bad, sorry. It can do great damage if I don't have to move and have gear from Sinestra. Otherwise I'll pass in favor of Frost for single target and Fire for AoE.The changes simply aren't enough for Arcane. The spec is a turret, and has situational uses on fights like Chimaeron and Halfus (on certain weeks), but other than that it's just a waste of my talent points when both Fire and Frost have far more utility and interactivity. When the day comes that Arcane Missiles (or Barrage, probably not both) gets the Arcane Blast buff back or Arcane Missiles can be cast while moving, we'll talk.

My arcane mage is still in mostly 346 gear and has recently been able to hit 14-18 K in raid single target. I do agree that movement is not real friendly to you. But proper burn/regen/maintain phase control (for mana) can push the numbers way up. It is especially nice for what it brings to the raid (focus magic and Arcane Tactics)

I feel the same way. Is there a more underwhelming "proc" effect in the game than Arcane Missiles? Its damage is mediocre and you have stand still to cast. If only its use matched the rather cool looking effect.
