    Arcane 5.1 rotation help ( mastrey and haste specs )

    I am a 490 item level mage
    I was going full mastrey after haste softcap with the mage armor. Some people told me to try going full haste because it can be a dps increase.

    Usually I scorch weave and keep my mana at 90%+

    now that i am going full haste what will be the rotation and what armor should i use?? i am abit confused and is it a dps increase?

    Same rotation.

    Use frost armor, and because you dont have has much mastery you can go as low as 85% mana. You can continue to scorch weave as you did before.

    Mastery and Haste Build seems to pull similar numbers, so it certainly with be a QoL inscrease (I'm liking Haste build alot more than Mastery build), but you wont see any significant increases in dps.

    Worse, at high gear (500+ ilvl), I think mastery build is ahead cause you already have a bunch of haste as a secondary stat.

    Single target, mastery is slighty ahead, but haste is more forgiving. AoE is way better with mastery.

    mastery: ur spells hit harder

    frost: u cast more spells which each hit less hard

    the mastery/haste builds are very close, while also considering mastery and haste benefit from each other. with ur itemlevel going haste could probably be a dps increase, with end gear mastery is slightly ahead.

    Like the others said :

    Haste = more spells but hit less hard
    Mastery = less spells but hit hard

    I enjoy haste a lot more, I find more dynamic, i don't like having slow casting spells, and if you mess up you get to max stacks faster so thats a bonus. In the end its slighty the same dps, so you should just play the one that suits you best.

    If some mage have the same gear has you but do a lot more dps, thats means there a problem in your rotation or maybe they're just better then you, it happens ^^
