Chance to freeze the attacker for 3 secs in combat is wicked for PvP (four part set bonus).

Well... that's interesting. But it's going to ruin itemisation a bit if someone with full Sorcerer gear ever goes into MC - you could argue that several of those items are better than their Arcanist equivalent (compare Sorcerer's Mantle to Arcanist Mantle). And similarly you could argue several blues are better than Sorcerer's stuff. (compare Thuzadin Sash to Sorcerer's Belt)

I dunno. They're better than what I expected, but still seem wrong somehow...

... and I officially name +200 armour the worst 8-piece bonus ever. Even worse than Paladin's Lightforge one.

Stinkfoot's Mortal Strike crits you for 3500 damage.
You die.
You gain effect: Holy Shield.

Arcanist Mantle (http://www.thottbot.com/?i=37367) vs Sorcerer's Mantle, a little difference between them but the Arcanist rule.

Thuzadin Sash (http://www.thottbot.com/?i=37193) vs Sorcerer's Belt, why the Sash is better?

Boots so far are the best piece.

Last time I checked, mages can't wear Lightforge set. :(

What I mentioned comparing items for is; supposedly Sorcerer's gear is for the people who collect the entire set of class gear. So they've got Magister's, upgrade to Sorcerer's - why would they want to get Arcanist at all? It'll mostly just be a minor upgrade, and considering the effort and money they'll of put into the upgraded tier 0 set... That's already what some people complain about for tier 1 vs tier 2. Not enough of an upgrade to bother with.

I dunno. gief moar epixx.

Arcanist is easier to get, you need just group to MC and it's done.

Well Warlee, i think the whole idea with the 0.5 set is that you will be able to get it without being in a raid guild/alliance. Its for casual players :=)

It's just for people who doesn't have time for it, imo :) MC requies a lot of time and you have to do it in one date. Quests for 0.5 set can be done when you want. It can be also nice way for beginers to gear up. But I have to say, that man who has normal time pool, some experience, can get easier arcanist.
