Hello everyone,

 

I have been playing World of Warcraft since Wrath of the Lich King, spending most of my time playing a protection warrior. Recently though, I have delved into the class of mage.

 

During my leveling process I found that frost mage was the best. It has the most CC and can avoid damage quite easily. However, now that I have reached level 100 and have the capacity to join raids as my mage, I seek the knowledge of this community to understand which specialization is best for the new WoD raids.

 

Upon reaching level 100, I decided to search for this question. But I have been unsuccessful in my attempts to find the right explanation of which specialization is best for each instance. I hope to walk away with a better understanding of the mage class, and of how each specialization changes my effectiveness in certain situations.

 

I appreciate any helpful advice provided and look forward to reading your replies.

      I usually sim my characters to get the best possible results. I enjoy the process quite a lot and since I reached 120, I wanted to find out the best build of the spec. (Note, I didn't want to find out what to play, but rather how my own build fares in comarison.) I rarely mind a 1-2% difference. If it goes above 2%, I really mind a change. What this thread is about is mainly to bring something in the attention of those who help making the class guides, especially the talent choices. To my surprise, I was awed to find out that certain talents outperform previous "Standard" choices in the endgame, probably due to the stat squish.

      The Frost go-to build (top dps) would probably be along the lines of <Icy Talons / Cold Heart - Runic Attenuation - Frozen Pulse - Gathering Storm - Breath of Sindragosa>. What I found out primarily was that after the removal of legendaries, Cold Heart severely underperforms at most given situations resulting in a major dps drop due to the low mastery. Gathering Storm also suffers from the same problem and most of the times, Frostwyrm's Fury is better overall. The biggest surprise of them all, however, was that Inexorable Assault overperforms quite a lot, and is the first reason why I made the topic. I then started simming with the above in mind and I came across a build that some would not consider on par with top dog builds around the meta, which is the use of Horn of Winter which overperforms both its other two options when using the Breath build. Talent Sim can be seen here. Another intresting thing, which I loved, was that the 2nd best build uses Obliteration as a lvl 100 talent and no other build surpassed it (Other than the first one, obviously). So, I encourage frost players out there to give their other, less common talents a try. To the class guide author(s), I believe that the two "underdog" talents will earn their spot in the class guides.

      Thank you for your time reading this.
