This now costs 7000 honor points and 25 AV marks in patch 2.0.1 with the new honor system. Arcane isn't very good currently, but maybe this will be worth it in TBC with Arcane Blast.
correction, i've seen some dominant 41/10/ 0 mages while iwas pvping. the boost that the arcane missiles spell gets from the talents is amazingly high. i'd say i was getting hit about 800 per crit that the mage had on me.
This is very good for the newly specced arcane mages, because the mana per 5 helps ALOT on the long run, and with 34 arcane damage Arcane Missles will be devestating. With talents Arcane Missles can reach a 66% mana regen, because its channeled so the 3mp5 helps even more!
BOOMKIN POWAH! :p
Here's a thought.
A druid puts 36 points in Balance, and equips themselves in "mage" items for arcane bonusses. The druid then casts Barkskin and moonkin form, and goes off looking for a fight.
The druid sees a target, and begins casting Starfire.
4 seconds later, the target takes 3k+ damage, 6k+ if it crits, and has a 15% chance to stun the target. The spell cannot be interrupted with damage, and the druid has an armor rating similar to a mail user, EVEN with all cloth items on.
If by some miracle the target survives the crit, there is no cooldown. 4 seconds later the fight has to be over.
Still think this is a "mage" item?
its not a drop, its bought from av vendor at exhalted, so anyone can buy... even a rougue ;p
plus ive been at the arse end of a moonfire barrage that killed me 4k in about 6 secs..
Anyone know if this would be worth anything to a hunter? Wouldnt this boost the damage to Arcane Shot and to Volley? With all the AGI gear, my mana pool is pretty crap-tacular, and when going all out in PvP the mana regen would be nice. Just dont know if this item would be worth losing stats from an off hand.
dont complain about drops cause you BUY this item
it can go to Warriors for god's sake
Seriously, it's nice for arcane shot...
Having both MC/BWL on farmstatus I would still never consider buying this, if you know how a mage works you should be able to control aggro just fine while still using fire/frost. I would belive this is more for the druid. (and shaman?)
as a non balance druid I've thought about picking this up. most of the time rolling through MC trash mobs I spam starfire to help with damage when I'm not healing. this would at least make me feel less useless while doing it, since I have no points in balance and my starfire hits like a wet noodle. For the druids out there about to say that wrath has better dps: yea, but starfire uses less mana/damage and benifits from curse of shadows. This and a mindfang with a damage enchant would at least make me feel like I was doing somthing, since right now I do about the same damage weather I'm nuking or I run in and grind some weapon skill.
balance druid could use it...
is there a mage who would buy that? i think its almost all fire or ice dmg dealers out there.
