Hi I am leveling my mage and this will be my third character over 85, the previous two being priest/warrior. My damage on mobs and instances alike is rather low compared to what I was doing on my previous two classes. Both my warrior and priest were well over the 30k mark even at these lower levels. On my mage I struggle to break 18k single target as a level 85. My rotation is as follows:
1. Frozen orb
2. Keep Nether Tempest on target
3. Frostfire Bolt Proc
4. Ice Lance FOF proc
I use Icy Veins, Mirror Image, Presence of Mind and Water Ele Freeze on CD/where best utilized.
I also use frost armor and Arcane Brilliance.
Talents are - Presence of mind, Ice Barrier, Ice Ward, Cauterize, Nether Tempest.
While obviously regardless of my damage I still will level, its just a bit annoying doing such low dps, as I think I may be doing something wrong. Is this just how it is with my average gear or can I be doing anything different?
