    [Mage Only] Use it before they nerf it. Crazy DPS burst

    I don't take credit for the find, but I thought I would pass it along. So every mage knows the spell Arcane Blast - Spell - World of Warcraft It stacks a buff that damage of all Arcane spells is increased by 15% stackable up to 3 times for 45% increase.

    Normally your next Arcane spell after the third Arcane Blast would consume the 45% increase buff, but NOT Arcane Missiles - Spell - World of Warcraft So in essence you can get the +45% Dmg buff for each volley of missiles that you launch.

    But wait there is more! If you time it just right and cast an Arcane Barrage - Spell - World of Warcraft right after the 4th tick/volley of missiles it will also get the +45% Dmg buff.

    What happens when you get the combo off you may ask? I like to call it the "Arcane Shatter"

    45% increase on each set of missiles is not more than normal, it would be the same as 45% total increase for the spell.

    The "exploit" is that both the missiles and the following barrage both receive the +45% damage, but this is pretty widely known in the mage community.

    <-- wooberries on a friend's account

    just want to clarify that this poster - who is undoubtedly homosexual - is not me.

    and FYI, the bug is that the fifth missile doesn't eat the blast stack, which means you can AP --> missile barrage --> arcane barrage for stupid damage, all at the 45% (or 50%) damage buff. follow it up with ye olden PoM pyro and something will die, always.

    with stuff proc'd, missiles can crit for 5k each (hitting more than twice per second), barrage can crit for 10k (as seen in the screenshot), and pyro will crit for like 8 or 9kish.

    i don't. a friend whispered me a few minutes ago saying that there was a homosexual posting screenshots with my name in them on mmowned, so i asked another friend to use his account so that i could oust his cock mongering.

    The "exploit" is that both the missiles and the following barrage both receive the +45% damage, but this is pretty widely known in the mage community.
    yeah, it's not exactly big news. i made a thread a few days ago in the damage dealing forums just because - even though i'm pretty sure it's intended since AM always has weird mechanics - it's stupidly overpowered in PvP. nothing can survive it.

    I wouldn't doubt there is an exploit with the new way arcane blast works. I (a frostfire spec mage) did 10 man sarth and 1 arcane spec mage totally blew everyone away in DS doing like 5k DPS at the end of the fight. My recount showed most of the damage was coming from Arcane Blast. He had max crits of 15-16k.

    Lol they have first added the +45% dmg on next arcane spell in 3.0.8...

    Also im 98% sure that you dident found out about this yourself..

    Besides.. the most known arcane rotation for PVE is ABx3, AM, ABr and start over..
    Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos. I'm an agent of chaos. Oh, and you know the thing about chaos? It's fair!
