Should i change spec? 572 ilvl mage.

Recommended Posts

Hey, im a 572 ilvl frost mage (http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/lightbringer/Thors%C3%B8ster/simple)

 

My question is should i change spec now that i have achieved a very high ilvl? 
If the answer is yes should i proceed to go fire or arcane? I dont know which spec would pull above the other one. I dont care which one is the easiest since i think i'm very capable of learning both very quick. 

 

And yes im aiming for progression in SoO.

If you feel you could do better dps in one of the other specs, go for it. Mages are in a good place now, there's no one spec that is totally dominant, all 3 are viable if you can play them well. One thing to note is, Arcane and Frost can share a set of gear fairly nicely, whereas Fire has a completely different stat priority, which makes it harder. Looking at your gear, Arcane would be perfectly viable, and so that's what I would suggest for now. If you play it, and aren't enjoying the feel, you can always go back to Frost, or swap to Fire.

Very much this.

 

I rode the Frostfire bandwagon in Wrath until it was nerfed to the ground, then learned to play arcane. It seems that I have found the playstyle that  suits me best.

 

Arcane has the most "mage-like" feeling for me. I much prefer a Destro Lock to a Fire mage, and to me, Frost has too much Elemental Shaman in its mechanics to feel very Mage-like. I realize that I am in the minority, but at least sticking hard to my Arcane guns initially got me onto a very good raid team for the raid buff and my ability let me stay.

      Hi everyone. So I've read the guide on fire mage here on Icy-veins and got some questions related to single target rotation. First I'd like to ask about the meteor. It is mentioned that meteor should be used with Rune of Power which is fairly easy to do since Rune of Power is always ready when Metor is off cooldown. However It's also mentioned that Meteor should always be available when Combustion comes off cooldown. Now Combustion has a 2 min cooldown and meteor has 45 sec cooldown. I can use meteor twice while Combustion is on cooldown. However If I use Meteor twice , It is on cooldown when Combustion is ready. Should I wait for Combustion and not cast Meteor on the second time until Combustion is ready?
      Second what I'd like to ask is about Combustion after the opener. Its mentioned that I need a hot streak before I pop It. I fish for Pyros by casting Fireball until I get a crit and then use Fire Blast. However when I get an Hot streak I'm already mid-casting Fireball. Should I cancel the cast and cast Rune of Power or should I let that Fireball hit and immediately after start casting Rune of Power?
      It's also mentioned that I need to have a Fire Blast charge always ready before going in Combustion phase. Should I save up a charge and ignore the Heating Ups I get regardless and hope for Fireball to crit twice or basically wait for Fire Blast to get another charge?
      Thanks 🙂
