WoW Freakz spell link: Arcane Missiles

Bug description: This spell is considered a channeled dot (like priest's mind flay) and should benefit from pandemic effect which allows you to roll 30% of the spell's duration into the new one. Meaning you can roll over 2 of the 5 arcane missile ticks of the first cast into the next one, extending it's duration accordingly.
There are however a few interactions with the Rule of Threes trait that need to be noted.

Quote:
Normally, the trait has a chance to give you 3 extra missiles in a channel. But if you interrupt one channel with a second, the number of missiles calculated from a Rule of Threes proc gets readjusted in a weird way. The channel's duration will remain the same, but you can gain or lose a missile. It works like this:

-Interrupt a 5-missile channel with another 5 -> the remaining channel time of your two unused missiles get rolled over into the new one, for 10 total.

-Interrupt a 5-missile channel with an 8 missile proc -> the two missiles worth of channel time get added onto the 8 missile proc but retain the increased firing speed. This will make you fire 14 total missiles instead of the intended 13.

-Interrupt an 8-missile channel with a 5 -> Channel gets extended and the missile firing speed gets recalculated back to normal. This will make you only shoot 12 missiles instead of 13, which is bad.

-Interrupt an 8 with another 8. Works like the first situation. Duration rolls over, and you fire the intended 16 shots.

Forums aren't proof.

Provide a video of it happening on retail or a blue post/official statement by Blizzard.

Well maybe my initial report about this from 7.1.5 that stood at confirmed for the whole patch shouldnt have been deleted in the first place if you ask me for proofs again...

ANYWAY. here you go, ill post proof again. You can see him use the pandemic mechanic multiple times, simple example at 1:05, his regular arcane missile cast time is 1.8, the initial cast is rule of threes proc, the second one is also rule of threes proc and has 2.1 sec duration because he recast missiles before the first one finished completely, so remaining ticks transferred to new cast and adjusted duration of spell accordingly.
