Apr 12th 2010 7:49PM When I first started playing WOW back in Vanilla, I eventually settled on the Mage despite friends trying to deter me from it. Back then I desperately wanted to be Arcane but it wasn't considered viable, but I wanted to do it because the idea of mana management and doing damage were exciting to me. Mana Adept finally gives me that feeling of Arcane I've always wanted.
For Frost, I think the diversity of spells Deathfrost allows will mean more spells that can be buffed in damage without affecting PVP meaning more viability for Frost in PVE. I definitely think this is a good sign for Frost, and I'm rather pleased as it's the spec I ended up using in Vanilla after all.
Fire is just what the Warlocks that used to be Mages were specced as.
