hmmm interesting. they showed a lot of their answers in the 3.2 patch notes.

Arcane Blast: Mana cost reduced by 12%.
Invisibility: Can no longer be interrupted by a hostile action or damage done during the 3 second fade time, however an invisible mage can still be stunned or silenced.
Talents
Fire
Empowered Fire: In addition to its existing effects, this talent now also grants a 33/67/100% chance to regain 1% of base mana each time the Ignite talent deals damage.

yes, its a huge change for mages... 3 things wooo!. less mana cost for arcane... is huge. the main reason i don't play arcane is the serious mps usage. fixing invis so i can keep casting and/or take damage and i still get my threat dump. i think heart and V will truely appreciate that. 1% base mana (32.68 mana) every 2 secconds so long as i crit once per 4 secconds. that can theoretically give 81.7 mp5, with 1 crit every 4 secconds. more realistically it will be around 70, but that is pretty massive.

there is also a ninja nerf to replenishment... if you didn't notice. instead of .25% base mana /seccond, its 1% base mana every 5 secconds. that is .25% base mana/5 less regen, or for a mage its about 8.6 mp5.

for mages, its roughly an 1.6 mana/seccond loss in manaregen... or 8mp5.

12% less mana for AB is huge too.

the one oddity here is i find it wierd how they chose to make fire more mana efficient. that extra 75 mp5 of regen also applies to ffb, so a spec that can already cast in a raid setting for almost 15 minutes before goinig oom, gets pushed over the top. i'll do the math later, but i think the 75 mp5 is enough to put ffb into an infinite cast time till oom if raid buffed. thats rediculous.



There is more to life than pew pew you know, like staying out of the fire so you can live to pew pew another day
