After reading this thread I switched to arcan in order to test it myself. One reason is my guild is trying hard modes and especially for XT (heart), razor, mimiron and yogg (p3) it seems beneficial. However some questions aroused I like to post:
1) Still it is stated that arcan is comparebale to fb build in normal fights. I am not able to confirm that. Neither by using rawr (it has already be stated in this thread that arcan is about 500 – 600 dps behind) nor by the raids of this week (our Ulduar 25 main raid, Ulduar 10 raid and Naxx 25 raid). So the question is, how is the statement justified e. g. how can I reproduced the numbers?
2) The spell rotation I used is Arcane Blast, Arcane Blast, Arcane Blast, Arcane Missiles (Arcane Missiles only when Missile Barrage procs) otherwise Arcane Barrage. In general , is this rotation right? When looking at our raid logs I realized that the damage done by Arcane Barrage exceeds the damage of Arcane Missiles enormously (so why bordering casting Arcane Missiles at all)?
Mana has not be an issue and the play style of arcan is really nice. Would be great if you could help me and thanks in advance.
