WotLK Mage Builds

WotLK Mage Builds

Here are the top WoW Mage Builds for level 80 but there is not a lot known in World of Warcraft about new builds and how they work out but I have provided the best builds known for level 80 Mages. This covers both PvE and PvP aspects and is described in detail about why that build is chosen for the situation. It use to be mostly fire builds were PvP and frost builds were PvE but that has all changed in Wrath of the Lich King.

Cover me, I’m Sheeping!

Do you get tired of your raid leader yelling at you for not holding your own in a raid? Maybe you constantly hear, ?Are you even trying??, well say bye bye to the wipes and hello to the epics. The builds below are for pure mage ownage, and by that I mean, down a raid in 10minutes. (not really)

Frost [11/10/50] – This build consists of spamming Frostbolt till you soil yourself and make sure you pop out the Water Elemental whenever your cooldown is ready and while doing this stack up your Icy Veins. If this build is executed correctly you should see a major improvement in dps along with survivability even though we all know how much a Mage loves his healer.

Fire [18/51/0] (+2) – If you do this build you will be spamming Fireball just like you would Frostbolt in the previous build while casting Scorch every 30 seconds to keep up the Improved Scorch debuff on the monsters you are attacking. When you have Hotstreak be sure to shoot out the infamous Pyroblast. There are two points left over in this build allowing you to personalize it to your needs, after you have set it up how you like it this build is golden, or should I say, slightly burned? (bad humor)

Arcane [53/18/0] – This is a pattern build as I like to call it, which means of course you will repeat a pattern throughout the fight in the same order over and over, but it will have great success. In this build you will alternate between Arcane Barrage and Fireball but make sure you Scorch the enemy 5 times at the beginning and then throughout the fight every 5 seconds.

Eat the Mega OP Pyroblast Noob!

Behold, these are the greatest PvP Mage builds across all the land, and looking deep into them may cause cancer or some form of headache! Well, that isn’t very scary but your enemy will practically run in fear or stay in one place while he is sheeped! I have taken the liberty to lay out the techniques to use against every class in any form of PvP and how to handle the situations in this guide but anyways, here are the best PvP builds and stuff.

Ring of Fire [All Fire] – Yes as gruesome as the title sounds this is a full Mage Fire build which wreaks havoc and conquers cities with flames of your right hand! You will spend all your points in this building acquiring all talents except Improved Fireball, Burning Soul, and Empowered Fire. Along with this specific build it is highly recommended you wear high stamina gear as this fight will be heated up! (I need to get better in humor)

Ice,Ice Baby [7/0/54] – Good thing this is the last section of the builds as my titles are getting worse each time. As you can see this build consists of deep Frost talents with a hint of Arcane talent points, making the ultra Frost PvP build known. This build will allow improved snares with Permafrost and Chilled to the Bone, and your burst damage will be helped by Fingers of Frost and Brain Freeze.

Level your Mage from 1 – 80 quick!

No More Alt+Tabbing or Minimizing the Game to Read the Guides. These Brand New In-Game Leveling Guides Will Level You Faster Than Any Other Guide… Period.

As you can see there are quite a few builds to choose while being a Mage and is highly up to you what you want to use. As the time goes on, and patches are released this guide may be subject to change, but you will be sure to know of any updates. Also, I encourage anyone that may have any discussions about these builds to just leave a comment and let me know, believe me, I love to fix my errors.

    Cool builds dude, I’m going to bookmark this page for future reference, especially since I just started an undead mage on a PvP server.

    About Zygor’s – you should add a note about how much time the automation features will save over an equally good PDF guide.

    why u go 5 + improved frost bolt , if u are using frostfire bolt anyways, better to use those 5 stats somewhere else…

    Hi Jason,
    I have read into your comment and the reason we empower our Frostbolt so much is that since this is a PvP build you will want to make it do as much damage as possible along with using the least amount of mana possible to survive in areans and battlegrounds.

    Frostfire – 14% base mana.
    Frostbolt – 13% base mana.

    This is the main reason behind this theory.

    If you have any more questions please ask because I love talking about this.

    two things not addressed, glyphs, and level 80 hit rating requirements. Any thoughts? Arcane focus will not help ur pom pyro.

    I found that the Frost PvE build was extremely powerful. Being 70, I swapped the Ignite points for Brainfreeze and Shattered Barrier. Getting off that extra free Fireball while running around is super. A build with a lot of potential.

    11/10/50 is too complicated to play and leaves out good things in the frost tree. With 11/0/60 you can have a chill effect on your Blizzard allowing massive AOE crits, Brain Freeze for free fireballs, and Ice Barrier for not dying. I don’t believe the ten points in fire are worth the theoretical benefits. (Fill the tree out yourself, there is room for a little variation.)

    And yes, AOE crits don’t affect bosses. But they affect boss adds, not to mention trash. Making a build to maximise single-target DPS was perhaps sensible in some BC encounters, but it was never as important as many said, and it is unlikely to fit all that well with Blizzard’s new raid design philosophy.

    @ Alan
    Thanks for the additional builds, after reviewing them they seem great and if you did not mind, I would like to add them to the list, giving proper credit of course.

    @ Gerry
    While I see your point in the /60 side of things, this is yet another viable build, but it was not exactly what I was looking for in things, I have used the /60 build and I was not so impressed, but with the 11/10/50 it addressed every issue I faced and more. Thanks for the input and while the /60 is still good, I just did not include it due to space and simplicity.

    I do thank you all for your comments on this, and there is more to come. The WotLK Paladin Builds is being worked on right now and should be up today sometime.

    Okay i need a spec for my soon to be 80 mage (79 atm) and i don’t see the point of putting 5/5 in ignate….? I guess the frostfire? but then you’d go into a frostfire spec for that, right? I just see not point if i was gonna be aoe without any fire at all : \

    And wih tearcane spec why not 3/3 enpowered arcane missles? it gives 45% of ur spell power (at 3/3)added to your arcane missles and 15% to you arcane blast (15% at 3/3) with no mana added to the cost of the spell? anything? let me know plz.

    comment-bottom
  19. avatar comment-top

    Btw that was for the frost spec for ignite.

    comment-bottom
  20. avatar comment-top

    I cant believe nobody said anything before zzman. Empowered arcane missiles is one of the most important talents in the arcane tree, along with the 12% more dmg on snared targets (which counts thunderclap too) thing is, if you got this, you loose 10% crit, but still, you just need a fire mage to make up for that.
    Btw, spell hit cap is 17% so unless you got 14% normally, or a draeni in raid and 13% hit, you need your points in the frost tree.

    For arcane I go like this:
    http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=of0Vcu0IzxGuMtedcZbIM0o
    Yes, the slow is useless, but sometimes practical, other than that, I dont need 1% extra hit/mana, so I get more dmg on my blizzard instead. Using Mage Armor, glyph for that, arcane blast and arcane power.

    For spamming fireball + scorch every 30 secs (which is now good again, at least with this spec and proper +dmg and hit)
    http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=of0qcz0fZ0Ec0RhIhVubhct
    Using glyph for fireball, molten armor and scorch
    Mage in my guild who did 5k dps on patchwerk 25 with this… I did the same in my arcane spec, I just have worse gear and more skill ^^ (mage is my alt now)

    I havent been frost for a long time, I cant seem to work up as much damage with it.

    For frostfire bolt spec, which you havent mentioned at all, its all about crits, and I use this spec:
    http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=oZfVc0RhIuVubhstbIccoc
    You ask why blast wave and dragons breath? well, moar aoe!! and, nowhere else to put those 2 points. They are also good for kiting things around.
    Glyph and rotation like for fireballs, just with frostfire glyph instead of fireball ofc. And, if you know you get heroism early, pop icy veins along with it, and any trinket that gives spellpower or a mana gem even. Mana isnt the problem here, so just use gems with 2 set T7 bonus for extra dps.

    I think thats all… hope some people are cleared out a bit.

    I thought about something and found out this is a good spec for fire, http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=oZ0E0bRhIhVubhstbGcMRc
    Basically gfor this one you spec into frost and not arcane, with frost you recude your hit raying needed and your mana cost of spells, Equals a longer fight for yourself, at a higher level of gear such as t.7.5 you’d go arcane i guess cause you wouldn’t need the hit rating lower but i think this one is better for fire till the 7.5 contents. Glyps to use would be

    /script DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage(“Shift-click this to place a link into a chat message: \124cffffffff\124Hitem:42739:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0\124h[Glyph of Fireball]\124h\124r”);

    /script DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage(“Shift-click this to place a link into a chat message: \124cffffffff\124Hitem:42751:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0\124h[Glyph of Molten Armor]\124h\124r”);

    /script DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage(“Shift-click this to place a link into a chat message: \124cffffffff\124Hitem:42747:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0\124h[Glyph of Improved Scorch]\124h\124r”);

    this is the best way to ensure your dmg being high and hitcaped.

    Let me know what you think.

  31. avatar comment-top

    Yeah, the spec you linked for fire is good, but then, if you dont have gear for the one I linked, go for the frostfire spec I linked instead. The problem with this is, you miss the extra 6% dmg on fireball and 12% dmg on fireballs with snared/slowed targets :) so, frostfire will out dps this :) and be more mana efficient :P

    comment-bottom
  32. avatar comment-top

    But if you go arcane then you will lose the 3% less hit rating needed, the spec is for mana purposes (i mean there r 2 points left for maybe aoe spells r increase your frost dmg in the frost tree) but its for a freshly made 80 with low gear you know? :D

    I myself have never tryed frostfire and wouldn’t know how it works till i do, but i’m going to hold off on that spec for abit till i get 25 naxx gear :D

    comment-bottom
  33. avatar comment-top

    Frostfire is for mana purposes :) Try the frostfire I linked, you get the same +hit and all you need is a lot of CRIT!! A frostfire bolt in that spec will crit at about 320% of a normal frostfire bolt hit! The thing that makes fireballs better than frostfire bolts is that with the arcane talents, you get a much higher base dmg and almost same crit dmg as frostfire bolts. If you don’t have that extra hit, either go for the arcane spec I linked, gives you up to 6% hit, or the frostfire which gives you 3% and loads of mana, frostfire bolts in that spec cost 372 mana to cast or something, its almost as low as frostbolt. With mana gems, you can spam frostfire bolts as much as you like even if you only got 12k mana :) Please try frostfire, you will see how well it works, especially for not having full naxx 25 gear.

    comment-bottom
  34. avatar comment-top

    Oh, forgot to mention… The gains you get in mana from lower cost in spells is vastly outnumbered by the 20% more mana regen and clearcasts in the arcane.

    comment-bottom
  35. avatar comment-top

    Well then i most def will try this frostfire you speak of and let you know how it works out for me. i will be like 2% short on hit rating but i will manage. ty :D

  36. avatar comment-top

    Omg… i tryed frostfire and only 1.7-1.9k dps… arcane was better for me :D

    comment-bottom
  37. avatar comment-top

    And thats with glyphs and all? Well, the only reason it should beat arcane is if you got mana problems keeping a proper cycle in arcane. And, it should beat fireballs until you can go fire/arcane. But yeah, arcane is the way to go for mages atm. Problem is, if all mages are arcane, you loose the 10% more spellcrit debuff on every boss :S

    comment-bottom
  38. avatar comment-top

    ehhh i tryed frostfire it just didn’t work, i don’ think i have enough crit for it ehh? lol my crit was only 25% UB

    comment-bottom
  39. avatar comment-top

    Lol, seems like you have been really unlucky with crits then ^^ you should have a base crit of maybe 20% then 9% extra from talents and 2% from glyph and 10% from scorch. Plus like 5% in raid, when you crit about 50% its really nice :) But still, if you arent bad, arcane will give you more dps :P

    comment-bottom
  40. avatar comment-top

    I’ve been playing my mage also as 57/3/11, but with my talent points distributed a little differently. My spec looks something more like

    57/3/11.

    My major glyphs are “of …molten armor, arcane power, and arcane blast.”

    With my current gear (mostly heroic and 10 man drops with hero’s shoulders and valorous robes, gloves, legs) I average 4k and can hit 5.4k on boss fights with bl. I have no mana issues whatsoever, with mana gems and 2 minute evos getting me through super-haste-driven dps bursts. I *might* pop a pot or two through a whole Naxx clear.

    But I’m getting kind of bored :/ I’d like to try a PvE deep frost spec for kicks and giggles but I don’t really understand the mechanics of the one (Visin) posted so if you could go into that a little I’d appreciate it. I have enough pieces with hit accumulated to justify switching back into a frost/fire/frostfire spec, but I’m not sure if the drop in spellpower and lack of crit would make me viable.

  41. avatar comment-top

    Well, I’d say go for something like this if you really wanna do deep frost: http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=ocbV0zZfcZVIccosu0f0gfsx
    All you do is spam frostbolt, cast fireball whenever instant cast procs and spam your water elemental whenever you can. Glyphs: Molten armor, water elemental and frostbolt. I’d rather have 3% more crit and longer lasting water elemental than 18% more dmg on critting fireballs whenever they proc…

    Still, dont think you will find this viable for frost pve dmg, you really wont hit anything close to same dps. But try it out and say what you get :)

    PS: dunno how you can keep up mana with molten armor, I do mana gems and evocations whenever I can too, but only barely manage to keep it up with mage armor ^^ oh well… At least on fights where I dont have to move and can just nuke… even got like 650 mp5 while casting ^^

    Wel–

    I never use mage armor and only have about 200 mp5 in combat (I’ve also not specced into “student of the mind”). I go usually go oom at least twice during boss fights, but smart use of my gems and evo timer allow me to pump out constant dps through a (total over boss fight) mana pool exceeding 70k and so much haste during bl the only thing holding me back is my own lag. I usually finish boss encounters with around 500 mana remaining.

    I see no point in sacrificing extra crit for mana regen if it’s not needed. I know arcane isn’t nearly as crit-dependent as fire and frostfire specs but, with the 4 piece bonus adding 5% increased critical strike damage…well it’s an easy choice in my opinion.

    As far as “student of the mind” goes, if I knew I’d be guaranteed improved divine spirit for every encounter I might go there for the spell power boost, but since I’m not I opted to increase my range to avoid auras like on Heigan, or give my remove curse that extra reach on Noth.

    But who knows? When spirit-based mana regen is nerfed in 3.1 and mage armor gets a hefty boost perhaps I’ll switch over. We’ll see, I guess.

    comment-bottom
  44. avatar comment-top

    Yeah, of course, I couldnt agree anymore, I’d definitly go for both range and crit if I could, I just cant seem to keep up my mana, thats the only reason :)

    comment-bottom
  45. avatar comment-top

    I only use mage armor on Long boss fights like Fad Or Sapp or KT, but keeping mana as arcane is somewhat ez, i use my mana gem at 80% mana and mana pot if i’m at 20% without gem being off CD and after that i just use mana gem then evo if the fight needs it. i’d save evo as last resort, because the 6-8 secs you spend not dps’ing will really mess up your dmg on meters and your dps. As for range its not really usufull unless you don’t have anything else to put the points into, in raids there isn’t much you needa be far from so i’d spend them somewhere else :D

    comment-bottom
  46. avatar comment-top

    Zzman-

    Slow and torment the weak are considerably less useful in boss fights than range, which I’ve already provided for 2 solid justifications. Greater range also means less running back and forth, which would add up to more missed arcane blast stacks in a boss fight than one evo timer.

    And if you aren’t blowing up your mana to pump out the most damage possible (as the arcane playstyle and talents would suggest) then I can see why you wouldn’t use evocation. But, what’s the point in that?

    I guess I just feel the 1.2k-1.6k dps lead I get on the rest of the raid during an early bloodlust paired up with icy veins, hyperspeed accelerators, and potion of speed (on top of 6% haste from talents alone?) gives me the luxury of spending 7 seconds to evocate and bring my mana pool back up after I’ve blasted through 24k in 10-15 seconds.

    Arcane is about blowing stuff up as fast as your computer will allow, expending all of your mana to do so, and then filling it up to repeat (albeit in a slower, more mana efficient fashion until cooldowns are up again).

    If you don’t agree that this is the playstyle Blizzard intended for a deep arcane spec, ask yourself why they’ve allowed the cooldown to be reduced to a deliciously cheap 2 minutes?

    Best St. Patty wishes,
    Aranii xoxo

    I have always been deep fire, but would love to push 2k + damage in RAID and I do not believe I can do this with deep fire spec. I am very interested in Aranii 57/3/11 spec. If you do not mind me asking a noob question what is your spell rotation that u use to push 2.4k DPS? Thanks in advance and as a side not this site has been a ton of help so far and you posts.

    comment-bottom
  48. avatar comment-top

    No problem Razial. This will be a kind of lengthy post, so sorry for /wall of text.

    Like I said, I do use molten armor with “glyph of molten armor” to up my crit because mana is seldom an issue for me. This goes for rapid trash aoe-pulls and boss fights. Just to reiterate, I also use “glyph of arcane power” and “glyph of arcane blast”.

    My rotation is like Visin said in his initial post…just a pattern rotation. My single target rotation goes like this.

    Arcane blast
    Arcane blast
    Arcane blast
    Arcane missiles — IF barrage has proc’d during arc blast stacks
    Arcane barrage — IF barrage has NOT proc’d, I hit this and then…

    Arcane blast
    Arcane blast
    Arcane blast
    Same deal. If barrage has proc’d go for missiles. If not, go for barrage.

    Sometimes, missile barrage will proc when you hit your arcane barrage. When this happens, I go ahead and stack up three arcane blast buffs before I hit arcane missiles, as there is plenty of time to load up the extra damage.

    In TBC, I used to worry about clearcasting procs and arcane potency and allow them to affect my rotation. I don’t worry about that anymore, because the extra crit is awesome for ANY of the spells in the rotation, as is the free mana cost considering they are so costly.

    Lastly–fire blast. A great instant cast spell that will most likely crit if you put that 3 points into fire and throw on molten armor. I work it into my rotation whenever the cooldown is up…so whenever you feel comfortable hitting it go for it. I try to work it in every two full rotations so the cd is always up.

    Make sure you pop your mana gem when you are down your first 2-4k mana, depending on whether or not you have tier and/or alch bonus. Smart management of your mana gems and evocation timer will allow you to pump out dps at full steam ahead without worrying about going oom halfway through and falling behind on the damage meters.

    Go ahead and use icy veins and arcane power, even your triplets (mirror image) whenever the cooldowns are up. Even on trash. Just make sure you have have them available for BLOODLUST during boss fights. So, if you know bloodlust is going to pop early (like Patchwerk) don’t use them 2-3 minutes before engaging the boss.

    Hope this helps, sorry it’s so long!

    Oh a quick PS!

    Since arcane blast is the only spell (aside from conjuring mana gems if you need a fast one in an emergency) that is eligible for “Presence of Mind” in this rotation…save yourself a good deal of mana and pop PoM on your THIRD arcane blast stack, as this one will be the most expensive. Remembering this simple task will really help in keeping you more mana efficient, and it saves casting time too!

    Aranii thank you for all the great advice and help with the spell rotation. I am excited to respec and see how it effects my over all DPS. As I said with the deep fire spec and all but 2 items in T7 gear and Naxx purples I have been disappointed with the 1900′ish DPS. Thanks again.

    just looked at your fire with arcane build… noticed that you have not put any points in torment the weak!!!! why skip out on 12% extra damage!!!! bosses are snared even if they don’t move slower, the debuff is still added to their table thus making the snare active 100% of the time since all tanks have at least one spell that snares in some way…

    take one point away from arcane meditation and take the 2 spare ones and shove them into torment the weak and increase your dps bz 12%

    The frost build is garbage. You go fire when you don’t have brain freeze?

    And your missing big dps boosters

    Eh, you might wanna notice that all this stuff was posted about 6 months ago = in patch 3.1 or something.
    Mages changed vastly in that time, the rotations are rubbish because of that. They used to be like that, now its all different… go figure. New 4 stacks of AB is the shit, and you get the fast cast arcane missiles much more frequently now too. It was rare to get back then.
    Doh?

    I noticed that you have added some new arcane builds,but none of them mention why you wouldnt want ther extra haste you get from the frost tree? While fire has some good points if you remove the palmpyro you wouldnt even look into it. With icy viens and the chill effects you can get from frost while staying deep in arcane you can do the same maximum damage and still kite anything in the game with out wasting points on slow! Here is a build that i think would better suit a mage for the end game scenarios. http://www.wowarmory.com/character-talents.xml?r=Black+Dragonflight&cn=%C3%90eadsoul&gn=Honor+Guard
