Whats can i do? Pls help.

P.S: I need in-game gold for train.
What stats are you stacking? As an arcane mage it's incredibly important to stack a lot of agility, since this gives you critical strike chance. More critical strike chance means the boss will die more quickly, which will result in less spells required to be cast and a smaller chance of going oom during a boss fight.

I stacked armor penetration, but i am planning to stack mp5 due to being source of spells whenever i get gold from someone. Needless to say, Arcane mage is the hardest dps spec in Wow history, my finger still hurts and Darchrow please accept my thanks for making a guide like that for revealing arcane secrets just to help people.

Im a n00b at mage, cuz i play the spec that requires the least amount of skill, fire (espcialy in pvp). Id like to ask Darchrow if he is gona reveal the secret "POM poly" technique in his pvp guide? Im asking cuz so few have mastered it. So complex i can barely follow it!

Deathswalker wrote:It's always nice to see a guide for specs that aren't used that often. I really like some of your tips and I will certainly try them out. Great work, and especially for the new priests a nice base to start their raiding with.
made me feel bad for not updating my awesome guide for all of you people out there <3
Plus i've been asked by many constantly and repeatedly to update it, and i have to give the people, what the people wants.

So to start, I'll be answering the questions that have accumulated. ( Won't answer the trolls, pls f off... )

Gear set up :

For the offset : You need to get items that gives the most MP5, to increase mana regen, thus casting more arcane blasts. IF! anyone says " MP5 for healers " tell em to go suck a donkey dick because this guide says MP5 is best.
For the main set : you don't need help with that pfff
For the trinkets : try getting DBW for the arpen for your auto attacks when you OOM, and also DFO HC for when you're not OOM ( you have to be ready for everything, and consider" WHAT IF " I do OOM?!?! )
For weapon : They say Shadowmourne is the best weapon, buuuuuut that's debatable, I'd go with Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the windseeker

Enchants :

choose whichever enchants from your local enchanter, tell him not to overdo it with the dusts. Dust is gold, gold is needed to buy mana pots. lots and lots of mana pots.

Gemming :

Preferably stack MP5 on ALL blue sockets, SPELL POWER on ALL red sockets. SPELL POWER AND MP5 on ALL yellow sockets

And with that, I conclude the PVE guide. ( Will be updated again, if anything turns out to be missing (!) )

Now, for a small talk about PVP guide. ( Not sure I will make a separate guide for this, but I might. )

It's basically the same as PVE rotation, except you have to include Slow and Polymorph.
Run around the map casting random slows and arcane blast everyone.
Oh and if someone is running away with flag, spam slow mindlessly.

Now for the hardest thing ever. Arcane Mage vs Ret Paladin.
Follow this AWESOME technique and guaranteed win.

> Spot paladin
> polymorph paladin
> Spell steal paladin
> Slow paladin
> Pop all cds ( arcane power / Icy veins / etc... )
> Cast one arcane blast
> Immediately Counterspell
> Cast 3 more arcane blasts
> Release missiles.
GG duel is over.
PS #1: In case the paladin removes first polymorph, then morph again then proceed as planned.
PS #2: In case the paladin bubbles, just run around then repeat from step 1.
PS #3: In case you die, just logout, and delete game.

Well that is all for now.
Should you have any request, then please, ask away :)

Now this is just exactly why l got mine TF but people didnt thought it would be good, now l can point them to this guide and show them they were wrong.

Darchrow wrote: Preferably stack MP5 on ALL blue sockets
About this tho l sense its probably best solution to have MP5 in blue sockets, l still think about Spell penetration to penetrate HCRaid bosses like Hoggar. What you think about Spell penetration?

You are one fine student. These people know nothing, good thing you know the true way of the arcane mage

Ah!! good thing you spotted this mistake of mine.
I failed to mention that you should also get at least 60 spell penetration to brutally penetrate through Hogger and the other OP 40man raid bosses.
Also don't forget to also get 60 armor penetration for the auto attack when you OOM!
