Raid spec. for mages

Fire/frost



Major glyph: Molten armor, frostfirebolt, scorch

Spellrotation:
single target: scorch until 5 stacked, livingbomb, spam frostfire bolt, Use instant pyro everytime its ready keep livingbomb and scorch on target during the whole fight

Aoe: Livingbomb, Blizzard or livingbomb, flamestrike, blizzard..

Note:Use combustion, trinket etc, when they are ready, and just a hint, dont use living bomb on bosses like fairlina in naxx, to avoid hitting adds

Gear stats: Hit>spellpower>crit>haste>mp5. Meaning you need to get hit before you can crit

Spellhit cap in this build: 368

About spec: some might prefer to skip, dragons breath to get last point in frost channeling. or to skip flamethrowing to get blastwave and and last point in frost channeling


Arcane/frost

http://www.wow-europe.com/en/info/basics/talents/mage/talents.html?tal=23000523210033015032310250532103000000000000000000000000002032030010000000000000000000

Major glyph: Arcaneblast, arcane missiles, magearmor(molten armor if you got high mana reg)

Spellrotation
single target:arcane mind, instant bolt, frost or frostfire(make a macro to pop both), 2-3arcane blast, arcane barrage or missiles, use arcane missiles on every missiles barrage..and repeat(pop arcane mind and bolt when its ready again)

Aoe: Blizzard, in some few cases arcane explosion

Note: use icy veins, arcane power, trinkets when they are ready,

Gear stats: Hit>spellpower>haste>crit>mp5, notice haste before crit, but still hit is top priority

Spellhit cap in this build:289

Good addons: Magefever(notice you about instant pyro etc), decursive(to remove curses fast)

A job well done.

Always easier to refer to a post than learning someone to play a game.

already got to 80 Smile
http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#of0icu0Izxu00xZZAcccocu0fz:qiTom0

what do you think of this one?

its a very simple build mainly using fb and ice lance i took some nice sp buffs and mana buffs from arcane and made it to ib in ice for a litlle more survivabilty...think wont have any mana issues with this one but im afraid of the dps...
i know that frost is not too good in dps but powered with the arcane tree maybe
perhaps i will give a try on dummies...

Well, firstly, i'm not a mage expert.

BUT, i think that the above spec is mostly for PVP :-]

I haven't been doing a lot of mage stuff lately, but i'd think http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#of0Vcu0cZ0E0bRhfhVubust:diLocz would work fine for PVE

Based on keeping up your living bomb DoT, and spamming fireball, and then throwing pyroblast, whenever Hot Streak pops.
