Jun 11th 2011 4:51PM I love arcane, but the issues with AoE and movement are real pains on many fight. A channeled while moving Arcane MIssiles would be great, but seeing how the ability is a proc, RNG might bite you on occasion, an issue that even applies to our normal rotation. My idea would be to add in a secondary clause to an Arcane talent, or even add it as a specialization bonus, that simply gave Arcane Missiles a 100% proc chance. In this manner, clearing AB stacks and movement would be greatly improved.
To fix AoE, the best solution would seem to be borrowing from the repertoire of the Shadow priest , with an added kick: a Mind Sear-style spell, same damage as Arcane Explosion, that benefits from AB stacks, while also refreshing the stacks.
