5.2 Arcane Mage Rotation

9 posts in this topic

So as of 5.2, what is the arcane mage rotation? I used both RoP and dumping after 4 stacks and arcane missiles, and the complete mana burn with invocation, and the Invocation seemed to net me a lot better of DPS, but then again I literally logged in for raid and got off, so I didn't get to play around with the new stuff at allllll, and while learning the fights I definitely didn't follow the rotation anywhere near perfect.

hi, i play arcane for 5.2 and the rotaion is as followed:

keep nether tempest applied at all times on one or more targets, refresh just beore the last tick.

use arcane blast as your arcane charge builder.

use arcane missiles at two stacks, use both stacks.

use arcane barrage when at four stacks of arcane charge.

always be stood in your rune of power

useful cooldowns:

arcane power - good for burn phases or off cooldown use

mirror image, good with arcane power

alter time - use when you are at 4 stacks of arcane charge and two missiles, then use arcane power and mirror image, activate alter time, use both missiles, use 1 blast, (2 if you are in TW, heroism/lust etc.) then use barrage, then alter time finishes and your stacks are reset to what they was, use missiles and barrage again the continue with the normal rotation (presence of mind can make a second blast faster or just one)

aoe rotaion:

use flamestrike off CD, presence of mind can make this instant

use arcane explosion, spam it

use barrage at four stacks

hope this helped, i play on silvermoon, character name is Vandamonia, i play EU

Link to your armory would be helpful. 73k could be amazing or terrible depending on your gear. Your basic rotation sounds fine, but check the IV guide again, they added an opening sequence that describes when to best use the AP+AT macro. Are you always using your T6 talent?

I would be also preferred, if you could link a World of logs of your character along with your character armory. I am pretty sure we will be able to figure out what is wrong.

      Hello hunters,
      i nees some help with the marksmanship rotation. I'm trying to follow the guide of azortharion
       
      In no-proc periods:  Arcane Shot until 95 Focus, then  Aimed Shot to not Focus cap and repeat. If  Windburst becomes available during one of these periods, use it immediately and generate focus with Arcane Shot afterwards. Then, towards the end of the  Vulnerable window, cast the 2 Aimed Shots with roughly 4 seconds remaining on  Vulnerable. When you get a proc: →  Marked Shot → Keep Cast  Arcane Shot once (twice with extremely high Haste) so that there is only ~4 seconds remaining on Vulnerable → 2x  Aimed Shots.  
      But i really have some diffcult. Usually i'm doing this:
      - If vulnerable is down: cast windurst if is up or marked shot -> 1x arcane shot -> 2x aimed shot
      But really, i never have enough focus to do this and a lot of time i can cast only 1 aimed shot.
       
      I dont understand.

      So I love this brawlers guild and have thoroughly enjoyed the challenge up until meatball. Now I'm just bitter. I'm a frost mage but I also tried arcane and I can't touch this guy. Ive tried any and ever strategy and buff I'm able to afford and haven't even got him under 50% yet. I'm 865 so I feel like it should be possible I didn't think my gear would be a problem until rank six honestly. So any advice or help or tips or whatever I'm desperate.
