Does anyone know how this affects ? Does it affect just the first blast or the entire spell? From my limited observations, I thought it only affected the first blast, but I've been wrong on matters such as this in the past...--Mikaka 06:09, 17 July 2007 (UTC)
Out of curiosity, if you feel like spamming arcane missiles, does each tick have a chance to proc clearcast? Can Arcane Missles proc clearcasting at all? If so, how?
Arcane Missiles is affected by both proccing and consuming Arcane Potency, though only starting the cast of Arcane Missiles can actually proc Arcane Missiles. http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=2518904200 Testing by Zaldinar confirms. Tykero 14:22, 12 March 2008 (UTC)
Here is the way it works:
- You start channelling Arcan Missiles (AM) - Clearcasting proccs when your first missile damages the enemy - ALL your next missiles will get the +x% crit rate from arcane potency until you use the clearcasting buff.
Once the clearcasting is consumed, you lose the +x% crit rate.
Note that the clearcasting buff will be consumed when you are supposed to use mana, i.e. at the beginning of channelling or at the end of cast.

This is incorrect. Clearcasting procs on the initiation of the Arcane Missiles cast, NOT when the first missile hits. Further, if you read the post linked above ( Arcane Missiles and Clearcasting Zaldinized ), you can see that casting Arcane Missiles to consume Clearcasting results in the +30% crit for the full duration of the cast. In short, Arcane Missiles benefits from both proccing and consuming Clearcasting with Arcane Potency. Tykero 05:58, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
