Hello EJ and the rest of the fellow mages out there.
Well I just noticed something quite nice the other day.. I quit wow a while a go, but now with the new exp pack comming up, I found some interest in the game once again.
So there I was testing out the new specs, Fire and Arcane (frost sounds interesting too, no offence).
I tried raid as fire and arcane, and I gave the buff Focus Magic to a raid member, then switched back to fire for AoE and trash. But I noticed that my fellow raid member still had the focus magic buff and that I still got the buff when (s)he critted.
I found that as a pretty nice thing, 3% more crit is quite good as fire, esspecially now when the combat stats are getting lowered..
There it is, focus magic works as fire (and I guess as frost as well). just a little tip, and a very good reason to dual spec arcane as secondary.
Let's hope Blizz wont notice this, even though I posted it here, (jsut couldnt let such an important boost stay in the shadows).
