MoP leveling spec

Hey everyone !

As MoP is coming dangerously close I've started thinking about leveling preparation.

As we'll mostly be killing low life mobs it seems to me that fire is out of the question as it relies a lot on dots.

Between frost and arcane I think that frost is the better choice as it offers more survivability (for some boss soloing and simply dying less) and the current numbers indicate that the spec does pretty good damage.

What are your thoughts ?

I think Arcane is a terrible spec to level up in MoP. The problem is that your mana regeneration will be really low as you cannot benefit from any of the Tier 6 talents and you will be stuck with your level 85 biscuits until you reach 90 (or maybe the 300k mana regen biscuits unlock at level 88, I don't remember). So basically, you will spend your time eating food to regenerate your mana.

With Frost, you won't run into the same issues, and you will be able to make good use of your Frost Novas with Ice Lance.

With all the Crit / Procs/ Burst and movability I am not sure why you say fire isnt a good choice:) just careful not to pull packs of 10 mobs, as we did in raids before:)

I think I will level as fire also. You lose out on the pet but I feel like the extra aoe dps from combustion and the new inferno blast spreading will make up for it. You can also hold on to and control your pyroblast proc's easier now for more controlled burst on mobs. I also like dragon's breath as an emergency talent.

I think with the new changes and inferno blast the fire spec will be also viable for lvling up .....otherwise frost will be the one!

PS

I hope i wont have to go back to frost for lvling fire is really enjoyable atm!

      Hi, I have a problem with my frost mage. I'm pissed, because  I really don't know how  I can improve my dps. I know the rotation, I've watched many guides and my dps is still low.

      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.
