The new Arcane after patch 2.3?
Posted 07 November 2007 - 04:04 AM
With it, TLC and mystical skyfire diamond will be nerfed. Arcane missiles spam might no longer be viable, definitley no longer as powerful. But arcane gets increased mana because arcane meditation is now 30 instead of 15%.
Fire spec gets mage tax removed from imroved fireball.
The one thing in arcane not nerfed though is the T5 set bonus. So, the arcane blast spam of old with arcane rotations would still work. They are even giving us back our crit damage gem now properly designed for castors.
chaotic skyfire diamond.
+12 spell crit & 3% increased crit damage.
So, I was thinking, with all these changes, perhaps the people who don't want to go back to deep fire. Perhaps a hybrid deep arcane/fire spec (40/18/3) can now be considered? Use ABX3, scorch, FBx2 rotations. Then spam AB towards the end, or with AP mid way before evocating.
The spec needs a high amount of hit rating though. And won't go as well with the new haste gear being introduced in next patch.
The other alternative, is the stick with AM, but get all the best haste gear possible from Mt hyjal/BT, and the new haste gear coming out.
What do you all think?

If everything else is truly equal (gear, skill, etc.) then the pure dps class should beat the hybrid. If a raid chooses to run without rogues, mages, warlock or hunters, they should expect their overall dps to be lower. You can quote me on that.
