Mana Regen - Has Anyone Noticed?
Return to board index
Blizzard says they need to nerf healers' regen so that mana actually becomes something they worry about; We all know this. They don't want to nerf caster DPS (us), so they increased the mana regen from Arcane Meditation, Pyromaniac and Mage Armor from 30% regen to 50% regen each. No new new here.
As it is now you can have all three (in a very gymped spec, but you can still have it) plus Glyph of Mage Armor to have 110% regen. this Doesn't work. It caps off at 100%!
So now in 3.1 having Mage Armor, Arcane Meditation, and Glyph of Mage Armor will give an arcane mage 120% regen while casting, which is supposed to be equal to the 80% we have now. So this means it
really is a nerf
to us, and Glyph of Mage Armor will be completely useless!
Is this a problem people have seen and dealt with or has no one else noticed this?
Dang 110% does't work? I may as well roll a mage now.
Also Ulduar seems to be harder than Naxx no more free epix :((((( I'm going to start all over and roll a mage.
Maybe my math is wrong, but here's how I see it:
Most mages, right now, are only running 30% I5SR regen, from Pyromaniac or Arcane Meditation. Some Arc Mages use glyphed Mage Armor, but it seems like Fire/Arcane and FFB are the two most powerful specs for us currently, and both use Molten Armor.
So, currently, if you had 100 spirit, you would get 30 spirit I5SR.
Come 3.1, your 100 spirit will only be equivalent to 60 spirit in 3.0.9 regen terms (Blizzard has said they're nerfing spirit-based regen by ~40%), but you'll get 50% of it from those talents. So you'll still get the equivalent of 30 spirit I5SR on the live server.
For Arcane mages who are currently getting 80% regen (glyphed Mage Armor + Arcane Meditation), they'll now get 100% I5SR regen. So they will see a drop from 80 I5SR spirit regen to the equivalent of 60 I5SR regen. So it seems like every spec will want to go with Molten Armor now for raiding.
If you take out Glyph of Mage Armor, you get 100% of your casting regen, and free up a glyph slot. If you go with Glyph of Mage Armor, you can take a point out of Pyro or AM for somewhere else, and free up a talent point.
Or you can get pyro and/or AM, and run with molten armor.
Priest and druid mana regen talents are also being buffed from 30% to 50%. They're nerfing OOC mana regen while keep IC regen about the same.
