1: Given equal skill, equal gear, ect. ect. Arcane will ALWAYS beat frost, in the way things work now, and especially as a mage, you do what gives you the most dps. Sorry you feel it's boring, re roll then. Plus when it comes to burst, Arcane blows frost out of the water. Tie into that you need to keep your pet alive and we have a trifecta of poor dps numbers. Since your pet needs heals you're actually detracting from the healers as well. (Even if it's not a whole lot)
2: The way raiding works now is most of the time you take 0 damage, the rest of the time it's an amazing 500-1000 damage per 3 seconds. So your survivability reason goes out the door.
3: There are NO AoE fights in ICC nor hard modes.
4: You got me, for kiting ill take a frost mage sure. Maybe what, 3, fights require kiting or ranged tanking? But, for kiting frost is decent (provided you lower your dps even more by dropping Glyph of Frostbolt)
5: GC stated that right now, threat is very low on the issues raiders have to deal with. If you're having threat issues as arcane, raid with more hunters or rogues or better tanks. Plain and simple.
6: This is it. You want to raid frost because you want to. That's cool.... Just don't expect to take you seriously when you show up as frost.
BTW: You missed the ONLY reason I'd personally take a frost mage. Replenishment. If in my 10 man, I have a choice for my last spot between an arcane or frost mage and have no Survival hunters or Ret. pallies sure I'll bring a frost mage.
Aug 5th 2008 2:50PM I've been able to play with Titans grip and as it is now, you can not have a 2h in your main hand and anything but a 2h in your off hand. It's all or nothing right now.
Jul 30th 2008 12:00PM Maybe it's just me, but, I had no trouble at all getting to 58 in the DK newbie zone. I do admit if you had an easy time on a couple of the more grindy quests... damn you pokers!!! Then i guess i could see how you may not be close.
Anyway, I'd have to say.... Winterspring, it's gonna be cold anyway so why not prep my self for it?
Jul 16th 2008 10:58AM Under drama you might want to edit in someone on Blackwing Lair ninja'd about 15k worth of Hearts and Epic Gems and promptly xfer'd. I can't validate this but have the forum topic. http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=7903747687&sid=1
Apparently is now on Magtheridon.
