Trainable Ice Block and Improved Mana Gem
Over on the official mage forums, Eyonix has posted a nice little bit for us mages.
In patch 2.3.2 (which should be on the test realms soon), Ice Block will be trainable by all mages at level 30. This is one of the spells that I miss the most when I left my elemental spec. It will be good to have it back.
There will also be a new rank of Mana Gem. Rank 6 will give back 1800-3000 mana, but possible even better… it will have 3 charges. No more creating multiple mana gems for those long fights. Yeah! I think that will pretty much solve any mana issues I’ll have until we come into some 20 minute fight or something. The 2-minute cooldown will still apply.
There will also be a new talent in the Frost tree of Icy Veins. It essentially decreases casting time by 20% of all spells for 20 seconds, and is on a 3-minute cooldown. (What’s up with Blizzard and faster casting lately?) Check out the official post on the forums for all the details, if you’re interested.
