Patch Day! 3.2.2 is here - Arcane Mages cheer!

Sorry for the lack of updates here people. I have been out of work and have been sick. I will dive ALOT deeper into the new patch, 3.2.2, later on tonight.

However, I just wanted to let everyone know that today is in fact Patch day.
  • Onyixa is back and she is f'n pissed!
  • Arcane Mages are now wanted for RAIDS! Woohoo! Lets hope they don't nerf it 20 hours into live. For changes done to the mage spec, check out an article I wrote a few weeks back.
  • Elemental Shamans, Flameshock's base ability is now just like the glyph. More on this coming later.
  • Heirloom items extra experience percentage will now be helpful in battlegrounds! I was already getting a silly amount of XP doing AV....now its going to be redonkeyous.
That is just a few of the changes.....

My full thoughts later on tonight / early morning. Until then, I'm WTFout!

Hm, might be time to mess around with an arcane spec. I have always thought arcane missles/barrage LOOKED cool and magy. Better than 111111111111111111 lol

BTW ironically my verififaction word is OUTOM (Out of mana?)

I'm not hugely fond of the Arcane changes. The longer duration of the combo point mechanic meant not having my DPS go to crap when I have to switch targets. Now it feels like I have to be chain casting with no casting time lost at all times or I will lose my combo stacks.

I suspect that the secondary point was to try and create a niche for Abarr again - if you're forced to move and you have combo stacks, they WILL expire before you can stop moving and cast your next blast, so you might as well ABarr on the move.

On the plus side, I guess I don't need to feel bad about using MBarr solo with mobs hitting me, since I didn't pay any mana for the volleys I just lost to pushback anyway.
