6.2 changes to mages,

Recommended Posts

Has anyone got any opionions on the upcoming changes to mage?

 

Mage

General

Arcane

Frost

 

 

Seems fire hasnt been touched , but with frostfire bolt now doing more damage is there a place for it in the fire rotation?

 

is arcane going to rise as the only single target spec viable or is the changes to frost going to make it a competitor?

 

What is peoples thoughts?

After taking into account the nerf along with the buffs, frost overall single target damage at ilevel 700 will be buffed about 3.7%. Arcane will receive about a 4% nerf to overall single target damage at ilevel 700. This brings the gap between frost and arcane much closer, but arcane still will do about 2.5% better on single target than frost, so I forsee no changes to the current arcane for single, and fire for aoe.

Frostfire Bolt is replaced by 16px-Spell_arcane_blast.png?version=30cc [Arcane Blast] for Arcane mages and by 16px-Spell_fire_flamebolt.png?version=19 [Fireball] (at level 12) for Fire mages.

      Hi everyone. So I've read the guide on fire mage here on Icy-veins and got some questions related to single target rotation. First I'd like to ask about the meteor. It is mentioned that meteor should be used with Rune of Power which is fairly easy to do since Rune of Power is always ready when Metor is off cooldown. However It's also mentioned that Meteor should always be available when Combustion comes off cooldown. Now Combustion has a 2 min cooldown and meteor has 45 sec cooldown. I can use meteor twice while Combustion is on cooldown. However If I use Meteor twice , It is on cooldown when Combustion is ready. Should I wait for Combustion and not cast Meteor on the second time until Combustion is ready?
      Second what I'd like to ask is about Combustion after the opener. Its mentioned that I need a hot streak before I pop It. I fish for Pyros by casting Fireball until I get a crit and then use Fire Blast. However when I get an Hot streak I'm already mid-casting Fireball. Should I cancel the cast and cast Rune of Power or should I let that Fireball hit and immediately after start casting Rune of Power?
      It's also mentioned that I need to have a Fire Blast charge always ready before going in Combustion phase. Should I save up a charge and ignore the Heating Ups I get regardless and hope for Fireball to crit twice or basically wait for Fire Blast to get another charge?
      Thanks 🙂
