I didn't switch from my one true love (fire) to the snoozefest of arcane because it was the "flavor of the month" and everyone told me to switch. I switched because I, personally, do a great deal more damage as arcane. My raid is full of a bunch of really skilled DPS players, and I'd rather be competing with them than somewhere between them and the tanks.I have been thinking about switching my second spec to frost to see how that goes, because I enjoy it almost as much as fire.

Do respec frost, it is indeed fun. As long as you don't mind your main dmg dealing showing no graphic or sign that it hit the boss except for a quick, nearly obscenly big, number that pops up from an instant cast. Saddly, even played well, you will do less dmg. If you go all out and reforge, gem etc for frost you will get close to fire, but no where close to the numbers a good arc mage can get. I personally enjoy the arc mini-mana game myself, but I have noticed many people who begrudgingly switched to arc putting up good numbers even if they aren't disciplined in the rotation. I tell you what though, nothing beats being the most undergeared toon in a raid and still out dpsing everyone else *and* the other arc mage in the group too. Big smiles.
