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.

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      I need guidance!
      I'm a returning player from the MoP era, I've played throughout TBC and beyond and currently I'm a iLvl 890 Mage. I haven't played any of Legion launch content, no 7.1/7.2 content when I first started playing again. Currently I've been doing all of the broken isles quests, currently on the last which is Suramar and my entire Broken Isles Rep standing is at Honoured across the board at this moment in time (btw this rep wall for flying is a joke).
      So here I am questing, doing dungeons and LFR. Multi-tasking multiple things, I've just received the last follower for the class hall quests, it's so overwhelming and I have no idea what I need to do to make sure I'm not missing out any tasty loot because I'm an avid completionist and wouldn't want to miss a mount or title or anything haha! But like I said, I'm so very overwhelmed by everything and I don't want to be doing things that I don't really need to do unless I get something shiny. Am I gonna be screwed if I skip the Broken Shore? Do i just go straight into argus? I love leveling alt characters but if i do all this, and have to do it again on an alt, I would be so angry. Obviously the Legion flying will benefit the alt, but if I can just skip to Argus(?), is it really worth it? Like jump straight into argus if its not gonna damage my alt toons chances of getting gear? WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING AND WHAT AM I WASTING MY TIME ON? - is the question I'm asking here. I hate missing a trick, please halp ! D;

      So, I'm currently maining Blood DK and that's the spec that I've gotten my 4 legends on. I do occasionally use UH and was wondering which of my legends would be most effective for it. Just a foreword, all of the gear that the legends replace is about equal; all 915-920 and don't cause any major stat changes so its not like using one legend over another causes me to use a bad piece. I have Soul of the Deathlord, which is the one I use most on UH, and I have  Shackles of Bryndaor, Archimonde's Hatred Reborn, and Prydaz, Xavaric's Magnum Opus. Does the Shackles passive work on UH, if so, could that be a better boost for Val'kyr[Dark Arbiter Talent] (b/c you can cycle more RP)? Other than that I'm just wondering which out weighs the other, STR or the secondaries?
      Edit: and just in case it makes a difference, my talent build is; http://www.wowhead.com/talent-calc/death-knight/unholy/c75z

      Hey guys,
      I'm new to playing affliction lock and ranged DPS in general really. Can someone help me see why my DPS isn't where it should be? I've changed my stats around and have been playing with my legendaries and rotation but I can't seem to improve. If someone has some ideas it would be much appreciated.

      Hello, 
      I am concerned that I am severely under performing as a fury warrior. I can manage to parse typically in the 80s for almost every fight in heroic ToS with a few exceptions: Mistress, Host, Avatar. I'm currently 933 equipped and I'm not at all concerned about my stats... I know I should and could be parsing in the 90s. But I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. 
       
      My opener looks something like this: Charge, Pop Moonglaives trinket, Pop all CDS, Raging Blow, Oden's Fury, Rampage, then start normal priority rotation: Enraged RB>100 rage Rampage>RB>BT>FS. 
       
      I have recently discovered that I have been doing my execute phase entirely wrong. I just went and tried first two bosses of heroic ToS again. Parses went up slightly... Goroth: 83->89, Inquis:84->90 but still not where I need to be. 
      Another think I'd like to mention is that I try to prioritize Enraged RB @100 rage before hitting rampage. According to Kelade (one of top fury warriors in US), this is 100k dps difference. Although at times I find myself in an awkward situation where I'm at 100 rage with RB on CD and I literally have to wait a whole global to hit it... I'd like to know how to make that stop lol. 
       
      Last issue I'd like to bring up is this: Most of the time not all my CDs will line up perfectly together... BC, glaives, OF will be up but Avatar will be down. I'm slightly confused about when to use All/some of my cds... especially on fights like heroic KJ. Fights like Harj and Miss I'm confused about if I should hold all my cds for adds or blow them in the beginning along with prepot... I feel like prepot is a total waste without cds...
       
      Below you will find the link to my armory and logs. Please Help me. I need to be parsing much higher than I am. My guild is doing mythic and I don't want to be the one holding us back.
