Frankly, honestly, etc. Any of them. You can easily have enough crit for fire, Arcane and Frost are also awesome.

 

You can try out Mastery heavy Frost mage, and you can switch between arcane and frost without any gear change if you want. :)

 

If you feel unfamiliar with arcane I would suggest you to try out Frost with the same gear as you have as arcane. If You also feel uncomfortable with frost, then try out fire. If you feel uncomfortoble with that too.... Well... Think about which spec you liked the most and play that. :D All 3 specs are well-balanced at the moment and we cannot really tell you that YOU HAVE TO BE FIRE CUZ THAT POWWWNNNZZZZ!

It's very hard to say for your current iLvL, If you were BiS of SoO, Then you'd be better off with fire, provided if you know how to play it.

 

Just because fire was "OP" in cataclysm, it doesn't mean it is the case in this expansion as well. All specs has been through immense revamp and if the player can use his character and spec effectively they can produce the same results.

 

The reason why WoL has only fire and arcane mages in the pole position is, that the top raiders are using these specs, whilst frost is mostly used by the mid-end raiders and very rarely by the high-end raiders. Also, looking at only one fight ESPECCIALLY normal mode is kinda pointless... (I am referring to you post in another topic with WoL links to normal Siegecrafter) I cannot argue about fire having high potential but it is NOT true that it is the only viable spec right now.  And no, 5-10k DPS difference doesn't matter in average.

Come on now don't let this get like MMO-C tongue.png

 

Frost has the greatest gear flexibility, so if someone is just gearing up and is in the 530's or 540's, you'll probably have the most fun and fluid experience as frost. If you're getting a lot of mastery gear it lets you segue into a mastery build or into Arcane. If you end up being better at Arcane, switch.

 

Your results will be very personal. Can't just ask the community which to play. Some of us are doing amazing things with Fire, Arcane-Mastery, Arcane-Haste, Frost-Haste, Frost-Mix, Frost-Mastery. 

 

I recommend running LFRs & Flex raids and change things up constantly. Even where I'm at I still change things constantly. I fluctuate from 13k to 21k haste, swap items, gems, trinkets, all the time! There is no right answer and that's a much better development framework than cookie cutter.

With a name like "explozivo" you might like fire best; there's nothing quite as explosive as fire shooting out of your palms at the enemy! The sounds are most like explosions of the three specs.

I personally like bouncing between two specs.  I think it's best when you learn one to research and set up your gear then live with it and practice for a few weeks before you make your decisions. Don't keep switching during that period, let yourself get comfortable.

provided if you know how to play it.

This, for all specs. Staying Arcane if fine if you boost your mastery, through reforge or better gear. It turns out that mastery really is second only in hit to Arcane dps.

 

IMO,YMMV.

      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

      So uhm, first post here and i take the opportunity to take you guys through my fabulous journey into "breaking" the tavern brawl this morning.
       
      So i get on that six-shooter tavern brawl with a mage decklist ( just cause i need them gold from quest ya know :D ) and on my second or third game,
       
      I play Research Project my opponent had then 10 cards in hand and draws for the turn, but no deck refill.... He then plays Barnes, no minion comes up from the battlecry. so it aint a visual bug. start my turn, play another Research Project, my opponent fatigues for 1+2, i can then OTK him with my 0 costs spells due to my 4 copies of Sorcerer's Apprentice.
      Fun fact, the tavern brawl clearly says; Make a six-card deck and duel! Don't worry - when you're out of cards you get a free reload!.
      Can anyone recall to this happening to them or no one had the cojones to mill?
