Mana usage as Arcane in dungeons

Recommended Posts

I have a question for Arcane mages that I couldn't find existing guides mention on any website. In dungeons, mana is not typically an issue as a healer because you can just drink/eat in between packs, I mained a healer up until now so that mindset is just ingrained in me. As Arcane Mage, would the same principle apply? Is it optimal to just forgo the conserve part of the rotation and just burn as much as you sustainably can with every  pack, since you can just eat conjured food in between packs, or should you still do conserve/burn phases similar to what you'd do in a raid?

Thanks.

Yep. 

When I'm running M+ as Arcane, I just drink and then use Shimmer to get to the next pull. No reason to conserve unless you are doing very high M+ with slow pulls that last longer than a single burn phase.

      CURRENTLY RECRUITING
      All DPS ABOUT US
      Big Brain Boys is a CE Horde Mythic progression guild, formed at the beginning of BoD. We’re currently looking for skilled raiders for the current and upcoming raid tiers.
      We provide cauldrons and vantus runes (if needed) for every raid night. Raiders are expected to bring their own food, pre-pots, and healing pots.
      Our trial period is at minimum a month. Keep in mind that our end-times can be extended by up to one hour for boss progression. (We make sure to let raiders know well in advance if we will be extending.)
      GOALS
      We want to establish a group of committed individuals to pursue Mythic content to achieve Cutting Edge. Not at breakneck speed, but at a constant rate of progression.
      Our raiders should be willing to put the effort into clearing Mythic raids, as well as doing sufficient prep-work outside of raid. (Leveling your HoA, M+, expeditions, WQs.) You should know when you should be serious and when you can joke around (i.e. joking around on trash or farm bosses vs being serious on progression).
      JOINING THE BOYS
      Please follow the link below to fill out our app (for both Raiders and Mythic+).

      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 🙂
