    Default Arcane mage addon

    There is a new addon which other arcane mages may find useful called [URL="http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/magemanabar.aspx"]MageManaBar[/URL].
    It's mainly of use to raiders as it tells you when to use your burn cycle.
    I gave it a whirl last night and it's really handy.
    It's still in beta but seems stable and reliable.

    Fire is still my off spec and is still the spec for some heroic raids. But from all accounts Arcane is better in most fights, is more consistent and dependable, and will scale better in firelands as your intellect increases. This is the opposite to wrath, where fire was the go to spec as your gear improved. I still find it strange not to be able to cast on the move in arcane and do miss scorch.

    True. Arcane Blast is getting a 5% nerf.
