Feb 14th 2012 9:06AM To clear it up: The original song is by Swedish artist Caramell, hence the name "Caramelldansen". The version that became really popular, however, is the Speedycake remix - by Japanese DJ Speedycake. =D The more you know!
Apr 10th 2011 2:32AM Well, that's kind of what the point of this new method is - it minimizes munching by having a "cap" that you can go towards, so any crits over the cap just extend the DoT, even if they munch.
Apr 9th 2011 2:18PM My solution for Ignite Munching is to rework the entire ignite talent from the ground up. Instead, work it so that it is like this:
- Procs on every crit, periodic or not
- Stores a "percentage" of that crit as a DoT, say...10%.
- Lasts ten seconds (Plenty of time for even lesser geared fire mages to get a crit)
- Each time it procs again, the new ignite number is added on to the old one.
- To prevent obvious balance issues, the DoT is capped at, say...2.5x your current spell power, or something similar.
Mar 21st 2011 8:09AM Ah, that's easy. Yesterday I was with some friends giving LK 10 Heroic a go, since most of us still needed our Bane of the Fallen King titles, and we were all generally goofing around. I was giving an explanation, and (because I only read about the fight instead of watching the video) I noted that when Shadow Traps came out, the person with the trap should run out in order to avoid it being dropped in a large group of people.
Anyone that has done that fight on heroic is already laughing.
I got Shadow Trap on me, and ran out of the pile of ranged. As I looked back, I realized that the trap had dropped right in the middle of them all...next thing I know I see our healer come flying at my screen ala Smash Bros. and all save one of the ranged DPS is dead (that one got thrown towards the throne). Thankfully, we had a good laugh about it, but I don't think I'm going to live that one down for a while...:P

Oct 16th 2010 2:16PM As a mage, I'm finding that currently (though this may be due to spec familiarity and an obscene amount of mana regen I'm enjoying at the moment) Arcane is far out-dpsing fire, and is getting crazy crits (75k last night, although most fights had a max crit between 69k and 72k) that put its damage - especially in the "burn" phases - through the roof.
That said, for you fire mages out there (and I do find the fire spec a little more fun to play), I recommend you look for the addon called Combustion Helper. It shows when all of your dots are procced, and really helps to determine when you can pop Combustion for the optimal dps increase. Really nice to have.
Aside from that, I have a question: Would it be worth it to replace either the Sliver of Pure Ice (healer trink, I know, but since the patch it's gotten a bit nicer for an arc mage) or the Talisman of Resurgence (again, much better since the patch) for Maghia's Misguided Quill? I'm at the hit cap, but I can use the extra hit to let me reforge a lot of hit off my armor into other things, like mastery or haste...just wanna see what some other, probably much better mages think about this. =D
Jul 14th 2010 10:24PM Holy crap holy crap holy crap. Guys, look at Missile Barrage. It's not a proc. It's passive.
It's not a proc.
My arcane mage is sending his soul to blizzard...
