Arcane Mind is a mage talent that increases total intellect by 3% per rank, up to 15% at rank 5. The intellect bonus includes all intellect from gear and buffs, thus the talent scales well with gear upgrades. This talent is popular with raiding mages who go deep into the Arcane tree. Intellect normally increases mana and spell critical strike chance. Mages with the Mind Mastery talent will also gain additional spell damage, and mages with Arcane Fortitude will gain more armor.
