Choosing your gear carefully is important for your Fire Mage in PvP. We give you a stat priority to help you choose items with the right stats as well, followed by advice on how to choose the rest of your gear and your trinkets to optimize your gameplay..

This page is part of our Fire Mage PvP Guide.

Stat Priority for Fire Mages in PvP

The stat priority for Fire Mage in PvP is as follows:

  1. Intellect;
  2. Haste;
  3. Versatility;
  4. Mastery;
  5. Critical Strike;

Intellect is the best stat in all situations. Haste is the best stat to be stacking as a Mage. This reduces the cast time of important abilities like Polymorph Icon Polymorph. Versatility is the second-best stat to have. This reduces the damage you take and increases the overall damage you deal. With talents like Glass Cannon Icon Glass Cannon, stacking some Mastery can allow you to deal significant damage through Mastery: Ignite Icon Mastery: Ignite dot during a match.

Gear Recommendations

2.1.

General Guidelines

In general, Fire Mages want to get trinkets that line up well with Combustion Icon Combustion. These trinkets can have a passive or on-use effect. The stat you want to be increasing is Intellect. The reason you want to increase Intellect is because it drastically increases your overall damage output. Please refer to our dedicated page for more information about Combustion and your rotation in PvP.

As of Season 4, each different specialization will receive a previous season's tier set. For this season, Fire Mage will revert to the Season 2 Tier set. Note that the Season 2 Tier set bonuses are all nerfed by 50% in PvP scenarios. This tier set is strong and even with the nerf in PvP, it is very useful and provides decent damage. In previous seasons, this set would opt for 2-set, however with additional secondary stats from higher item level, 4-set is ideal.

Draconic Gladiator's Badge of Ferocity Icon Draconic Gladiator's Badge of Ferocity gives you Critical Strike and has a 1-minute cooldown that increases your primary stat. This is great to use right before you activate a powerful cooldown; this is typically the go-to trinket for Fire, pairing extremely well with Combustion Icon Combustion.

Draconic Gladiator's Insignia of Alacrity Icon Draconic Gladiator's Insignia of Alacrity increases your Haste and has a chance to proc your primary stat.
