Yes! Thank you Blizzard!
Thank God, now I can finally enjoy the thought of going Venthyr with my mage without contemplating whether I made a good choice for PvE.
Don’t wanna cramp your style but it might be a good plan to group all these recent class changes into one post instead of crowding the home page with a whole bunch of different ones. It’ll get bumped when it’s updated anyways right?
This is such a good change for what was pretty much a pvp only ability.
Whats the point of Mirrors anyway they can be dispelled. So at max you proc 1 Mirrior.
Hmm... Clearcasting proc would be nicer or even just an arcane charge... Just a funny looking blue post that way. Like a virtual middle finger to Arcane. I kinda like the joke.
Why did they apply this to auto attacks? unless you have a wand this is useless, right?
still sad about mage covenant abilities none seem very reactive as a frost mage ( dont count the fb one fb is a filler spell and hits like a wet noodle ) guess ill have to sim before i choose since they all seem weak or not very useful
I'm fine with the PvE part... it's a good thing... but it also buffs its uses in PvP whereas it was already the best one.Another problem is... when you compare it with the Kyrian convenant ability...Both spell kinda work the same way... Both 1,5cast time, one is a dot over 8sec, the other is 3 ticks over 12sec (0s,6s,12s) so the raw damage is only a matter of tuning, it's basically the same.But Radiant Spark's buff to 4 spells is awkward to use... Frost : Flurry consumes 3 stacks, and if you don't have 4 fingers of frost, you'll waste some stacks ; Fire, you're clearly not gonna have 4 pyros either, so you'll probably waste stacks on low damage spells too. Arcane : is ok with arcane blast, but presence of mind is almost mandatory in PvP if you wanna use the stacks properly.On the other hand, Mirrors have Movement and casting time slow, + Root/silence. grants 3 flurries = 6 free Ice lances, which will ALWAYS be good damage, easy damage, with no cast time...Seeing that Arcane Missiles are kinda strong right now too, it's probably better that Mirrors grant mana instead of Arcane Missiles Stacks...On the contrary, Fire blast for Fire is ok but... meh... won't save the spec that looks already dead right nowThe spell looks fun, but the balance with other convenant abilities is clearly worse than before (slightly better in PvE, but a lot worse in PvP)
So you are basically preparing everyone to play only frost. I mean how can you thing that 4% mana is the same benefit as a brain freeze proc?
