Hello all!! I had not play WOW in about 4 years. I knew it has had expansions and upgrades and I tried my best to keep up. I upgraded my account to mists of pandaria and my level 23 Mage shot up to lvl 80. I need help with overall dps and aoe if that matters. I never ran an instance and I want to learn the ropes. I am currently running quest in hopes to get my Mage strong enough to run instances. My gear level is 252. My specs are below:

Health:29750. Mana 18000

Stamina : 2178. Spirit: 225

Intellect : 1754 Mastery: 24.58

Spell power: 2768

Crit: 25.93

Haste : 12.66

Hit +4.04

So am I weak? What should I work on!? I just need tips on this and what gear shall I get. I have gone into the auction house and bought some gear.. I need help!! Lol

For AoE there isn't a lot you can do; use Frozen Orb on cooldown, glyph Cone of Cold and use that on cooldown, otherwise spam Arcane Explosion/Blizzard. You won't beat classes such as Hunters sadly. For overall DPS, the spellbook's hints actually work out quite well. Make sure you use a mage bomb and apply it, use the Water Elemental freeze on cooldown on targets that can be frozen, use procs when you have them and otherwise just cast frostbolt. 

 

Keep in mind that mages have great crowd control. The Cataclysm(80-85) monsters can be quite tough if you're not geared with heirlooms or dungeon items, running a few dungeons is a good idea. Sadly, the game isn't balanced for level 80, so you can't really compare yourself to others who might have full heirlooms.

 

just power level to 90 then think about stats

He specifically asks for help on his level 80, post constructively or refrain from posting.

      <Trust> may be what you're looking for if you enjoy killing internet dragons with a group of like minded players! Currently we are 8/9 Heroic, soon to be stepping into Mythic ToS. We are recruiting to finish rounding out our raid team. <Trust> is located on the [US] Doomhammer/Baelgun pve servers, alliance side! Check us out!
       
      About Us:
      <Trust> is a recently formed guild, founded by a group of long time players that have been raiding together for a couple of years now.

      Our Raids:
      <Trust> maintains a progression-oriented 2-day semi-casual raiding team. That's 'semi' as in we expect our team members to always prioritize life first; but not 'casual' as in we take downing bosses less seriously. We strive to maintain a balance of taking our progression raids seriously while having plenty of laughs along the way.
       
      Raid Schedule:
      Tuesday & Thursday: 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)

      I am currently a 662 frost mage and I am trying to maximize dps. Currently I am using IN, MI, and PC for my last three talents. I've been doing a lot of research about frost bomb because apparently it provides better long term dps. I was wondering if this is true and how to properly use FB to maximize dps. I am doing many personal studies on FB and IN with prismatic crystal and frozen orb. 
       
      I understand from reading Icy veins that frost bomb is only triggered by FoF and should only be used if you have two charges of FoF for regular rotation. 
       
      My question is, what is the best way to use Frost Bomb with prismatic crystal and frozen orb? what is the proper casting sequence? I am currently doing PC, FO, FB. Is there a better order?
       
      What are some other tips that you give me to make Frost Bomb give the most dps?

      Hey hey,
       
      My mage has been my main since WoTLK. I'm just curious as to why haste has gone from being our No. 1 stat priority, to dead last. Is it not still beneficial, more so than crit and mastery?
       
      We have great crit chance with Shatter and haste increases pet dmg as well as lets us pump out FB faster which directly results to the possibility of more FFB procs. At the moment I'm sitting on 336ilvl and feel so sluggish getting frostbolts off, especially with fights requiring a lot of mobility.
