The slide bar where it shows your talent points is messed up. You don't start getting points until level 10, but when I put the slider to level 13, it showed that I should have more points than what I should have. Thanks for the great info though!!

The talent images change every 10 levels 🙂 A small limitation

The text below the talent tree (section 3.1) does not match with the talent tree image.

I just reviewed it and it is correct.

The text below is mean to tell you where to allocate new points. So, although image says that you will eventually have 5/5 Arcane Concentration while text tells you to put 4 points into it, it is because you already had 1 point into it from the previous image / point guide, so you only need to put 4 additional points into it from level 50 to 53.

On the explanation text below this I sometimes mention that a talent will allow you to unlock or have synergy with an upcoming talent, but I don't tell you to get it as you cannot yet, so hopefully this clears it out! 🙂

Ok, I see.  It's confusing because at lower levels (10-20) i am seeing the image with ice block and 5/5 improved frostbolt but no mention of when to allocate those (until i checked lvl 30).  Thanks for the clarification!

Ok, I just checked the warrior leveling guide and it works how I think it should.  The single target frost mage is incorrect.  Go to level 10 and work to level 20 and you will see that the image does not match the text below.

Weird, mine does not look like that.  At 19 it shows Mage 0/0/11, required level 20, points left 40

then has 4 points in improved frostbolt, 3 in elemental precision, 3 in frostbite, and shows 1 in cold snap.

??? wtf ???

Guest aoe grinding spot

the alliance aoe grinding spot with lvl 22 gnolls in wetlands is probably the worst possible grinding spot.
in that camp, are only casters!

The world first player to 60, Jokerd the Gnome mage started by grinding at this very spot:

Sometimes the camp might have casters, but it shouldn't be a 100% thing, or even close. Try to nuke some of them down separately if you can and hope for full melee respawns or change places for a bit 🙂

Is there any chance to get guides for those who would prefer to play other specs than Frost? I was looking to level as Arcane, but there's no guide on where to put my talents.

Sure thing, it will take a while to get it up on the site with all the details and yada yada but here's a rough sketch:

https://www.bobo-talents.com/?c=mage&t=pZsqp1q1q2pqprzdzepYI8p2q3q4rirjrkrlC5C6p~C7p0rarbwdwewfrcrdp.JBJCpxq6zazbzcpWrxwapNsRsSwbwcpOrerfy~JD

For talents + order to pick them on.

Idea is to increase hit chance with talents by 4% ASAP as that has the most effect on your DPS against similar level enemies.

Get Wand Spec ASAP to help with early leveling, you Arcane Missiles until enemy is close and then finish him off with Wand or Arcane Explosion (also taking imp arcane explosion ASAP to help with dungeon / general aoe).

Scale up the Arcane tree until Arcane Power, then go Frost, which will allow you to end up with great dungeon / raid talents as seen in the first build of our Mage PvE guide: https://www.icy-veins.com/wow-classic/mage-dps-pve-spec-builds-talents, no need to respec.

Have fun! 🙂

For both the recommended leveling guides the authors Bustea and Judgement also have released in-game versions of their guides for the leveling guide addon Guidelime. Maybe this information could be added to the guide.

I talk about this on https://www.icy-veins.com/wow-classic/classic-guide-to-mages-best-addons-and-macros, but you are right, I will add these to the leveling guide section shortly 🙂
