Sep 11th 2010 3:13PM Explodes for as many as it touches but only 3 active living bombs at at time. But we have a new talent to go with this, when living bomb is on 3 targets the mage gets a 10% haste bonus. So single target with adds and sustained AoE we will be using this!
One trick I've been doing in the beta is running while using lots of flame strike to create a path of fire that anything following me has to walk through.
Sep 4th 2010 2:29PM Last time I was using my mage I spotted an interesting thing: Living Bomb can now be spammed on any target. The effect of overwriting living bomb causes the old one to detonate. The upshot is if you don't think that group of mobs will last long enough to cast living bomb on all of them just spam it on one of them for a ranged none ground based AoE. (Would be nice for vile spirits for instance). Rotation seems to be blastwave (which procs a flamestrike in the same place) then living bomb and flamestrikes till blastwave is ready again.

Aug 18th 2010 6:48PM I see your 18th October and raise you a 12th of November for me in the UK (A few days earlier in the US)
Why? Check the date wrath came out, it all fits! ;)
Aug 18th 2010 6:29PM Mages used to have this problem with Deep Freeze, It was a purely PvP orientated stun. This got nicely changed so that when used on targets immune to stun (also know as bosses) it does some damage instead.
How I would go about it is when dispersion is activated and you have dots on a higher level target than you (at level 85 this will also be know as a boss) 'You suffer feedback from a mind stronger than your own' (or some such explanation) 'This battle of minds causes a massive mana drain instead of restore but all your active dots burn with increased intensity for the duration of the effect'
However I will add, come on guys it's Evocation and Ice block in one without the associated stun and you want MORE!! :P

Jul 11th 2010 8:57AM I chose engineering before I chose my class! (and hence the name)
So I had engineering back in the 60's and something else like enchanting.
Just before TBC I droped enchanting to level mining then droped mining for tailoring, droped tailoring for herbing, dropped herbing for mining again ready for Wrath.
One realm first engineering later, drop mining for JC, soon I will be dropping JC for Mining again ready for Cataclysm!
Then I think replace mining for alchemy this time around but I could never drop engineering, I love it!
Jul 10th 2010 6:49PM Worgen have nothing on goblins, ever since I herd they were coming I've wanted to turn my Fire Mage into a small green bundle of explosive joy! :D
Jul 5th 2010 8:02PM Yes I'm sure my mum has something just like that for the sewing machine.
Grab an old mouse then:
Assign buttons to something useful
Remove ball/tape over sensor
Step on mouse
Experience the joy of not spending $30 on one button
