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.

      <Trust> may be what you're looking for if you enjoy killing internet dragons with a group of like minded players! Currently we are 8/9 Heroic, soon to be stepping into Mythic ToS. We are recruiting to finish rounding out our raid team. <Trust> is located on the [US] Doomhammer/Baelgun pve servers, alliance side! Check us out!
       
      About Us:
      <Trust> is a recently formed guild, founded by a group of long time players that have been raiding together for a couple of years now. Founded out of a desire to continue raiding in a casual-progression manner, we work towards defeating mythic bosses. <Trust> is a raiding guild, first and foremost.
       
      Our Raids:
      <Trust> maintains a progression-oriented 2-day semi-casual raiding team. That's 'semi' as in we expect our team members to always prioritize life first; but not 'casual' as in we take downing bosses less seriously. We strive to maintain a balance of taking our progression raids seriously while having plenty of laughs along the way.
       
      Raid Schedule:
      Tuesday & Thursday: 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)
      Friday(optional): 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)
       
      Recruitment:
      <Trust> is looking for full time Resto Druid, Mages, Hunters, and Warlocks for our raid team. We are also open for good people to join as casual players, pvpers, with the option to join farm content or alt raids.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
