My Arcane mage is not only useful but wanted now, which is amazing and awesome. I've been a second class player for as long as I rejoined WoW (In november, after I quit when BC came out due to RL issues and playing since the Beta), so being wanted and needed is really nice (instead of being asked to simply play fire). I feel the mages are getting to the point it should be, Arcane is best Single Target, Fire is best AoE, and Frost is alright (while ROCKING PvP). If your a mage, you have options, I love the new patch. I can now even get the enchants I want with the new low low cost of Maelstroms (All Procs I get 13k Spell Power). Its a very satisfying patch for me, and I think Blizz did good. ZG and ZA are frustrating (new CTA is getting every moron in a Hybrid class to play roles they have no business playing with gear they shouldn't use, especially tanks joining with nothing but pvp gear) but thats understandable.So yea, my Arcane mage is getting 4k+ extra DPS then before patch. One thing might be that its not that Fire is doing considerably less DPS (probably are, though the AoE is still dumb), but that they have competition, maybe since you have competition the lacks of fire are more evident (though like I said the single target is probably suffering, its not that nothing has changed and you think it has, but maybe that a little has and you think more has because other things are now good). IDK

Interestingly enough, the CTA is actually fine so far in my experience. I've run 5 instances since the patch dropped and every single one had awesome tanks, healers, and dps (except for one tank in LCotT who kept bashing me for being SV instead of MM, but that's not CTA's fault). And I mean with my queue times at 10 min instead of my previous 40, man am I one happy hunter!
