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

This is 5.3 and im a little confused as to my rotation.

This is what i do and im getting about 73k dps.

Opening

AB til i get 4 charges

AB

im keeping NT up and refresh with 1 tic left

I use my macro (arcane power and alter time when its up

rinse and repeat

Am i doing the right thing? And should I be doing better DPS?

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.

      I came to Icy Veins to setup my Elemental Shaman only to find your Talent setup does not match what is offered in the game presently.  Below I have listed what I see in my current in-game talent setup and bolded those items that do not match your setup at all.
      Current in-game Talents listed:                                                   Your Listing:                      
      15 Exposed Elements Echo of the Elements Elemental Blast               Earthen Rage 30 Aftershock Master of Elements Totem Mastery       Call the Thunder 45 Spirit Wolf Earth Shield Static Charge         60 High Voltage Storm Elemental Liquid Magma Totem       Master of the Elements 75 Nature's Guardian Ancestral Guidance Wind Rush Totem         90 Earthen Rage Primal Elementalist Icefury       Surge of Power 100 Unlimited Power Stormkeeper Ascendance         I thought someone here should know about these differences because it appears there has been no update recently to your setup.   I know that I personally would appreciate an update so that I can adjust my in-game setup to work better.

      I am new to mmos and I was playing an Arcane Mage but my fiance said frost mages are better so I am trying to learn how to play it and I have watched videos and gone over the icy viens information but it is still very confusing for me. I know this sounds bad but can anyone like dumb it down or like comment simpler instructions right now i am going off this attachment i made based of some advice and off of icy viens and i am only doing 4152 dps total so I am not sure if this is low or not but I am already level 120 right now
