No one uses Mage Armour.
If the choice is to free one point up in the Arcane tree, or to drop Molten Armour and 10% crit for Mage Armour, that's not a choice at all.
^This. There really aren't any other substantial DPS talents you could spend that xtra point on.
Even if they lifted the cap on MP5/casting and you could stack Mage Armor + AM 3/3 + Glyph of MA + 2pcT5... even then.
The 2pc T9 with Mage Armor would equate to sacrificing 1-2% spell crit to pick up 20-30mp5. Its early in the 3.2 PTR but can you imagine actually seeing that written out:
4pc : +5% crit
or choosing between 3pcs of gear - 1 with +100 Crit Rating, another with +400 armor, and finally 1 with +25mp5 ...
This has to be a placeholder pending further changes to Mage Armor or altogether different 2pc bonuses.
