See, this is why I try to avoid blogging about Wrath of the Snitch King.
So many massive changes all the time, it’s impossible to really place… well, anything.
A mere week ago, it was the weakest mage tree.
Three days ago, it was a horrendously bad tree filled with awful talents.
And now it’s pretty damn good.
So here’s an example of why you shouldn’t take anything too seriously coming out of the Beta.
Burnout. Wow. This talent has gone from hated to loved.
5 point talent, increases your critical strike damage bonus with fire spells by 25% (meaning, of course, that fire has the most powerful crits, mage wise, by a large lead).
It also used to cost you an additional 5% of your total mana every single time you critted.
Yes, that’s right, if Scorch critted 4 times, that’s a fifth of your mana pool gone. Just like that.
Then, they changed it to cost an additional 1% of your total mana every single time you critted. So it only sucked really bad this time.
And now it increases the base mana cost of whatever spell just critted by 5%.
Oh wait! Hold up! Not base mana cost, but just plain old mana cost!
Maybe I will stay fire for raiding purposes. This looks much better, even if Living Bomb still seems retarded.
Oh yeah, and Fingers of Frost? Brain Freeze? What the bloody hell is that?
Ok, I can give you Fingers… it did seem like it needed a nerf. But can you make it two charges? Please? I wanna shatter combo raid bosses.
But you can take Brain Freeze and shove it. Or at least rename it Freezer Burn so I can chuckle at it.
Deep Freeze deals damage now.
Didja notice the clever Blog Azeroth shared topic? Same title different post. I is so clever.
My little blogger heart is torn. On the one hand, I have a burning desire to blog about Wrath stuff. On the other, I know many people are sick to death of people talking about Wrath. On another hand, I know I could easily get hundreds of hits an hour by titling a post “Wrath Mage Changes WoW”. On another hand, there’s still months left of BC and valid blogging to do… and on yet another, all that stuff will be rapidly bunk in a few month’s time.
Stupid game world changing.
I NEED MORE TIME TO BLOG, DAMMIT.
