Report World of Warcraft in Community Posted May 11, 2006 also, blizzard has released info on the new shaman and mage talents. holy crap the new mage frost tree is GODLY. As a Mage I am very pleased the new talent tree. The talent Winter's Chill has been turned from a mediocre talent to a must have (Original Winter's Chill: "Tier 2 1/3 Increases the power of your Chill effects by slowing the target's movement by an additional 4%/7%/10%" New Winter's Chill: "Tier 6 1/5 Gives your Frost damage spells a 20%/40%/60%/80%/100% chance to apply the Winter's Chill effect, which increases the chance a Frost spell will critically hit the target by 1%. Stacks up to 5 times.") The new Arcane Resilience talent (Tier 3 1/1 Increases your armour by an amount equal to 50% of your Intellect.) that replaces Evocation is good because it will increase the survivability of Mages, something a lot of people have been wanting. I also like how they made Arcane Explosion an instant cast by default and that they removed Evocation as a talent and made it a skill. It’s also good that they haven't changed the tree's too radically so I can still have my 18 Arcane 33 Frost build (Here is my current build and my new build). When I first heard that they were reviewing Mages I was scared because I thought they'd nerf them but I am very pleased with what they have done. Word up Blizzard.
