Mug, if you mean "fine" by saying that fire is the best single-target and aoe dps in the game by a fairly significant margin, then sure, they are fine ^_^.@logical - arcane is all about cooldown management, as well as knowing the encounters. Yes, high movement fights will sap your dps, but it will affect everyone's dps. As I said above, the best arcane mages know how to shoot and scoot. They know when one extra tick of standing in an AoE is worth it, if you have like .3 seconds left on your 4-stack arcane blast stack. I'm guessing bosses aren't living long enough for you to get to your second evocation/mana gem phase. In that case, yeah, arcane is going to lag behind. You're right about AoE however, arcane basically has no aoe, it's a single-target wonder that just doesn't compete with fire on aoe fights. (I know you said frost, and frost is okay, but living bomb/ignite/fire blast dot spread is huge on packs of adds/trash.)
