i have respect for my arcane brethren, but the thought of having to face mobile arcane missiles in PvP makes me cower in fear. i can't cast my frostfire bolts on the move, and can only toss a pyroblast on a rare proc, so i feel that it's only fair that their main nukes are only available on standstill, too. keeps things even.

Arcane missiles isn't the main nuke of arcane. Blast is. Also, as a fire mage, you should be able to cast scorch on the move. Just sayin'.

@Schiffer -- shows what i know about arcane, huh? : ) as to the second part of your comment, yes, as a fire mage i can indeed cast scorch on the move, but the damage isn't a whole lot, and it's certainly not my main nuke.

The damage from missiles, along with the need for RNG to grant it to us, evens out the damage between that and scorch. Since it doesn't benefit from the added damage of stacks of AB anymore, it's pretty much a spell of functionality, not dps.To echo what someone said previously, adding it to a spell castable while moving would probably throw us off balance. We'd top dps charts every fight. Competitive now, but that's because we have to pause and walk 10 feet before we can resume our rotation.It would be bad-ass though.

it would DEFINITELY be bad-ass. like i said, i'd be fearful of having to face a horde arcane mage with such a power. warlocks everywhere are probably glad such a thing doesn't exist.
