What spec should I roll with the gear I have?

4 posts in this topic

Hey there Mage forums!

Up until recently I have been Frost and it has been very constant and good for me and the raids I have been doing, but I'm thinking and have been reading that with me getting into a higher item level, the other specs will pull ahead.

I was wondering what spec you all think I should roll with given the gear that I have. Please keep in mind that I have the 4-set tier set bonus, as I am sure that will come into play. Also, I have some upgrades to buy, etc.

Here is my armory link:

Also it shows the crit percentage unbuffed, but I am sure you all know that :)

Thank you in advance for the help!

35% a magical number for Fire mages :) If you can reach that you can go fire and play on a decent level. But the spec itself is very RNG dependant and you might struggle in some cases. It is also a bit hard to play properly with combustion etc.

I would not go Arcane in ToT, but I am sure other mages would argue with this.

Frost is between the 2 specs. It is very versatile and I am topping the meters with it on many fights on HC.

However, the most important is, to play the spec that you enjoy the most, and you can play at your best. :)

Thanks for your response!

I enjoy frost, but have been playing it for so long that the extremely predictable rotation is kind of getting monotonous and boring for me, you know?

Fire is definitely a lot more unpredictable, and in my opinion, more fun because of that, but I just want to make sure I am at the point that I can still pull my weight in raids.

There are points where i pull absolutely absurd amounts of DPS as fire and some where I just pull "normal." At the end of the raids, I am happy with my numbers if I am around 120-130kDPS overall.

I guess I just want to know what spec to choose to maximize the numbers I can pull with the gear I have because I enjoy every mage spec....because mages are the best ;)

I have to agree with your last sentence. ;) Fire should do well, really. If you enjoy its RNG, you should stick to it :D

      <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.

      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)

      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.

      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletags: Vims#21684 Azkey#21565
