Best Alliance PvE Arcane Mage Race?

Recommended Posts

For Arcane Mage PvE race.

I hear that Panda food buff is better then Gnome mana pool.

Thoughts or math on this, and any other comment as to the best race for PvE Ali Arcmage.

well panda's racials are quite OP and mana doesn't really matters anymore due the fact you or regen it mega quick and/or use the mana regen ability quite a lot so i'd presonally think panda over gnome.

Might also consider weapon choice depending on race. Thanks to dagger spec racial you can get more than just a little extra mana.

That is gnome, right? I pretty much just play horde now.

I love being able to shoot way over the hit cap with expertise. That means the rating can be used in other places to maximize say... crit or haste!

well y haha, it's true but i noticed that the food bonus you get from panda is quite stronger then the 1% hit due you not only get more sp you also get more crit and not sure how much crit points you need and not sure how much % crit per int you get at lvl but it seems that the food buff have 2advantages over 1 in my opinion

1% hit = 340 hit points. If you are using good int food you get +300 int. Clearly the +300 int > 340 hit so yes, panda is a better option than gnome that for. The only thing gnome has is the extra mana, however, mana doesn't appear to be much of an issue for mages in MoP (especially not max. mana pool).

A wand is the current BiS weapon and I would never count on the expertise bonus of races due to the BiS weapon always changing and rarely being what you want it to be for your race.

So Panda (for now) if you are trying to maximize.

My personal suggestion however is to play the race you like the looks of. The racial benefits are very minor in the scheme of things and you have to look at your character 100% of the time. So simply play what you like. Posted Image

We’re currently focused on running pre-BiS guild premades and power leveling those that play high need classes. Currently in need of Mages and Druids, but everyone can earn their way into a consistent 40-man raid group. We will conduct a loot council for our raids to ensure the most deserving of individuals are rewarded for their hard work. We’re looking for high active, extremely dedicated, top performing players that are looking for a new home to kick it. So as the great Suge Knight once said, "all you players out there, who don’t want to be in a guild where the GM and his officers… take all the loot, all the crafting material, benched… then come to Gangland!"   Recruiting: ? Druids ?‍♂️ Mages ? Rogues ? Priest     Raid Information: Times- Tues/Thurs 8-11pm EST. 3rd Day Optional Loot: Loot Council Off Days- BiS dungeon runs and professions farming     Expectations & Guild Rules: - No “spergy” behavior or the use of “gamer” words - Be prepared and knowledgeable - For raids and guild functions, be on time and reliable - Be a selfless player. The guild comes first - Strive to be the best version of yourself. Being content as a mediocre player is not acceptable   Our Discord is available for anyone who is interested in joining or wanting to get to know the guild.
