    Not sure what you're saying here. Fire HAS been nerfed or your friends think it WILL be nerfed? Why? Because the most powerful DPS tree is working as intended?

    Deep Fire is now and still will be the best DPS mage build.. It's supposed to be that way.

    Yes I know that fire was nerfed and it will be nerfed yet again to balance frost and arcane. Don't forget that I'm also a fire mage atm and I really do like critting for 3800 plus the extra 40% from ignite. However, depending on how bad they will nerf fire and how much they will be buffing frost/arcane I'll probably respec to either one of those trees (I'll be spec'ing frost to grind to 70 and then respec back if the nerf isn't too bad). Some things to note is that PoM and Combustion will now be on the same cool-down and so will Dragon's Breath and CoC.

    Deep fire spec is intended to be the best DPS build at the expense of other things such as survivability. There is NO evidence that this is going to be changing, so I'm not sure where you're getting your info. A frost build that could output the same DPS with frost's survivability would be imbalanced. The ONLY frost build that even comes close to fire's DPS potential includes Water Elemental and even then it's still a clear edge in fire's direction, and fire mages don't even have to take their 41 point talent to get better DPS.

    Deep Arcane can roughly match Fire's DPS but is less mana efficient.

    Fire has not really been nerfed thus far, unless you count the long overdue Ignite fix as a nerf. I do not, I think they are finally closing an exploitable loophole. Find a different way to deal with Loatheb. Burning Soul is nerfed but then so is Frost Channeling, so the nerf is not really exclusive to fire.

    As far as shared cooldowns go, I fail to see how that's a nerf to fire. And anyway, they are removing the shared cooldown between PoM and Combustion, according to Kalgan.
