hi guys

this is my 1st time writing here but i think many ppl same as me was wonderning what will we do after 5.1 hotfix nerf fire shall we keep going fire ? try arc. try frost

will for me since i have free time i just went and try few runs in LFR and normal run MSV raid as Arcane spec

1st my mage is normal gear 489 item lvl i manage to get mastrey to 11.4k full buff run with flasks + 2 pots + 300int food ( i am panda so its 600int foor me )

any way this what i get

1st boss normal MSV
ofc i stay Fire dps was after nerf : 100k ,
but i was chain from start of fight and was stuck with noob shaman who keep moving ><
my best was in 5.1 ( before nerf 136.8k dps " no jasp chain fight ) before 5.1 was around 110~120
so its like 20% less dmg which we already know from nerf

i try it in LFR ( zerg all 3 )
did 175k dps as fire ( LB on all 3 all time )

2nd boss normal MSV
for some reasen i try fire did 67k dps vs my Arc mage friend which is (8k mastrey raid buff ) did 75k dps

in lfr i run it 2 time
As Arcane i did 80k , as Fire i did 75k

3rd boss
well this boss all know dmg meater sux a bit becouse when u enter totem dps mix up blah blah blah so skip it
(was 86k dps as arc in normal mode any way)

4th boss
Arcane dos was 75.8k in normal mode with few wrong / bad luck move

in lfr
80k dps as Arcane and 75k dps as fire ( best was 5.1 before nerf fire was 92k)

5th boss
this is where it get cool
My best was fire 5.1 before nerf as 156.9k dps ( with killing 4 orb wave then dps boss on 5th )
Arcane today i just hit 141k dps ( 5 orb wave )

in lfr
cant becouse most time ppl fail on 1st wave so i stuck with 120k dps as Arcane

6th boss normal
70k dps as arcane ( can do more i guess but was late >< )

Any way i was just sharning this info / numbers becouse i will love to see other ppl numbers on Arcane in diffrent bosses / better gear

i know some will say arcane borning etc etc but hey fire now is borning as hell also with RNG fire ball most time
but some of us like me rly only care about dps and i dont mind pressing 1 and 2 if i can help my raid and kill bosses so what u guys think is Arcane now rdy for the raid " not all bosses ofc "

and which bosses do u think Arcane cant be used on ?
( i know 3rd boss in HoF is bad idea to be arcane for :P )

Thx all for reading and have nice day


ps. do u think Arcane can out dps fire ? and on what bosses ?

I wanna give elegon a shot as arcane this weekend in 10 man. However I still love frost > fire/arcane. It's just much more fluid.

Arcane should now overtake Fire on most fights, except those where you can spread Combustion to many targets. That's what I get by looking at the rankings on World of Logs.

This is definitely what seems to be the case. It would probably be a good idea to look at what boss your guild is currently at progression wise and spec accordingly (and reforge/gem). As fire and arcane are pretty much reversed in stat priorities!

i just read this and want to see ur guys idea about it " Never drop your 6 stacks of Arcane Charge. Use scorch to manage your mana. If you drop below 90% mana, 1 or 2 scorch is enough depending on your haste " do u think should be great idea ? i am going to test it and see how it look ^^
