This should go over well with you all. I am going to be truthful here, my major characters five on different servers, are Hunters. That said, I took it upon my self to be a better overall WOW player. So I started rolling at least one of each type character, warrior, DK, etc.This is what I found from being an outsider, sort of speak. First, I started as a Frost, enjoyed having a companion, sort of like being a Hunter but uniquely different. I then rolled a Fire Mage, and actually felt powerful again. I then rolled an Arcane, interesting but I felt constantly underpowered. I don't raid, actually can't invest that much time, as much as I want to. I do dungeons and again find the Frost fun because of the "help" form my companion. Fire makes me feel all powerful and I am able to survive . Arcane....maybe it is me because I am not an expert Mage player, just does not seem to have the power of the others.None of the Mages are above 44 so I have a long way to go. I guess what I am trying to get across here is, my Mage makes me feel almost as powerful as my Hunter and is almost as much fun to play. Any thing that Blizzard can do to make my Arcane experience as great as my fire and frost is a welcome change. But, and this is a big but and directed at Blizzard, do not take things away from this class as you did with Hunters. This is a fun class and needs just a little help with Arcane to make it a top, fun to play group.

I've gotta say that only being 44 and below makes a LOT of difference for all three specs.For Arcane, lv44 is 5 whole levels away from Slow, which makes you into a person who should snare the target then Blink out of harm's way while Blasting it to death the whole time. Lv53 is the soonest you can max out Nether Vortex - meaning your Blast will do the snaring for you. 57 is the soonest you'll be able to have Nether, Slow, and Imp. Poly: Past 57 no single mob should ever touch you again. Ever.The soonest that Fire can ever have maxed IHS, Combustion, and Firestarter is 45; and that's if you skip other talents you might want to take earlier. You won't maximize Critical Mass until 63, and LB's at 69.The soonest Frost gets maxed Brain Freeze with Icy Veins and Cold Snap is 45 - and that's ignoring some early talent you'll want. You won't see Ice Barrier until 49, nor Deep Freeze until 69.
