One thing I see most mages forget about is Deep Freeze as any spec. It's great for taking down tougher adds and if you are fire spec (the one I recommend leveling as) then you can easily set up big combustion combos and spread to take out groups.

What exactly makes Deep Freeze so great? How do you make it work in conjunction with Combustion?

Because it's a stun and due to Shatter (All specs now) you are almost guaranteed crits on spells cast on deep froze targets. As fire, you can inferno blast>Frost Nova>Deep Freeze>scorch>Pyro>Combustion>Inferno Blast and your target mob and surrounding mob or 2 are gonna be near dead. When you pyro into a deep freeze it's gonna be a crit almost every time (and can be everytime with good crit rating). Also Deep Freeze is only a 30s cooldown now so it's got great uptime.

I liked the MONK guide. I wish this guide went from 1 - 85 in addition to 85 to 90

In the next few weeks, we will extend this guide to cover the entire leveling journey, from level 1 to level 90.

It's been more than a few weeks.

What I noticed is that at the leveling guide, you make use of Frost Bomb.

But in the Frost dps guide, they say not to take Frost Bomb, Could someone explain this why?

Frost bomb is is much more viable in solo environment, because you can easily do Shatter combos with it. However, in raids the bosses and even the trash is usually immune to freeze, making the other 2 bomb choices much more viable. (They will do more damage simply)

I just dinged 88 on my mage and it seems they added Gate of the Setting Sun as a dungeon for level 88. I don't know if they added more at level 89 though. Posted Image

In 5.3 they changed a few dungeons to be accessible at lower levels. We know about it, but currently have higher priority tasks to be done at the website. :)

Thanks for the help!

Thank you for this guide, it was very helpful. Do you plan to compare the specs in the future, giving advice as to which is better to level up with?

Well, I can tell this to you quickly.

All three are capable of leveling, however Frost has slightly better crowd-control than the others, and with the Pet Freeze, Frostbomb, Frozen Orb, Ice Lance spam, you can easily dispose big number of enemies, under a short period of time.

Fire could do fine, but it is very crit dependant, and most of the time you will just find yourself running around with Scorch, which is a single target spell, so you cannot really pull bigger packs.

Arcane... Well, I have never tried leveling as arcane, honestly. In my opinion it lacks the mobility, which is bad for a mage. You don't really want to stand in a spot and get your face smashed.

Blizzard is not used in this aoe rotation?

Great piece.

 

May I ask why Blizzard is not used in aoe rotation?

It forces you to stand still. That is not something what you want to do while pulling lots of mobs. smile.png

Hi - I am not sure if this is something that goes here or not.  But where is the beginner Mage guide (any, but I am frost) located?  The only way I found it was a link (and by accident) -  

 

1. Level 1 to 85
Oltier, our Mage moderator, has put up a comprehensive guide for leveling up a Frost Mage from level 1 to 90.  We advised you to read it!

 

 

Would something like this guide be more benificial to people looking for such information have it's link located up on the Classes under Mage, instead of being buried under a lvl 85-90 guide?  biggrin.png  or be combined with the 85-90 level? (85 to 90 is not very big)  Or better yet (this can go on for a while, sorry) have the guide be broken down into part 1 (Frost), part 2 (Arcane), part 3 (Fire) and part 4 (85-90 all)?

 

I have been looking for this type of guide since I was level 12 on my mage Icey Rose  biggrin.png  since I have no idea at how a mage works or plays, but I do know how one dies.... horribly, horribly, painful screaming like the gnome girl that I am.

 

Thanks,

I can agree with a bit more highlight if it is really that hard to find.

However, adding the arcane and fire spec levelling would require lots of time. Not only to write it, but the time to level up a mage. I mean.. Yea, I can read what ability a mage gets at what level, but I wouldn't recommend such things that I haven't tried out myself as well. :) I hope you understand my point of view.

 

Additionally, I still think that the most viable spec is frost to level. Once you ding 90, you can switch to any other specs easily.

      ABOUT US
      We Tried is a mythic progression raiding guild formed by an ambitious raid leader seeking like minded, progression oriented players who would work together towards clearing the latest content while it is still considered relevant. After suffering some roster issues, We Tried merged with Procrastination in late December 2016 and together we have fully cleared Emerald Nightmare Mythic within just two weeks.
      OUR PAST ACCOMPLISHMENTS & FUTURE GOALS
      Although we have since slowed down, we are proud ourselves of holding the realm 27th Nythendra Mythic and 24th Elerathe Renferal Mythic kills.

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 10/10H NH 6/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      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, please PM me (violentravi#1826) or recruiting officer Sepsis (tuxedomask#1712) in game.  However, if you have time (which goes a long way) for us to give you a real evaluation there is a short forum to fill out linked on our discord: https://discord.gg/JMVuYRW
       
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Ok so raiding in guild, on Star Augur Normal im struggling to hit and stay consistent at 300K, yet when i did LFR i did 500K+ (lowest i went was 450K)
      Not doing anything different and its been like this with the other bosses. Followed the rotation guide and everything i'm doing is right, checked stats etc and they are right, but still struggling to get decent DPS.
      In our logs i am always in the grey (meaning im not utilising stuff more) but yet i have no idea how to change this as i am literally using cooldowns when i can and also doing my burn phase and conserve phase when i need to.
