There's an interview with Lead Game Designer Tom Chilton
up on the official site on the topic of class
reviews. It gives us a bit of insight into how the developers approach the process as well as providing a bit of
insight into what to expect for mages in patch 1.11. Chilton hints at some of the must have talents in the arcane
tree (possibly Evocation and Improved Arcane Explosion) being made available to all mages, as well as reducing the
mage's downtime and improving the viability of frost/fire combination builds.
