Hey there all.
I have a question to all those mages that have progressed on Garrosh heroic.
My guild have been working on the boss for quite a while now, and are almost i phase 4, as we have multiple sub 7% phase 3 attempts.
I was originally Fire on this boss, but as we had problems meeting the dps requirements to enter phase 3 before the 3rd whirling the other mage in my guild convinced me to go arcane.
As it turns out, even though i'm pretty bad at arcane, which is shown by the fact that I do like 15% less dmg to garrosh on avg than our other mage, I do seem to do more dmg to garrosh at least during phase 1 and phase 2 than I did as fire. I'm a lot less sure about phase 3, as my arcane dps seem to plummet here, even though I find my own little spot. That matters less however as we are normally stopping dps to not push him over right as he does his 2nd whirling.
My question comes here.
What are people's expirience with fire vs. arcane for phase 3, as that is pretty much the part of the fight that is stopping us from getting to phase 4. I suspect that I would be able to do quite a bit more dmg as fire with all that movement, especially considering that my arcane dmg under heavy movement is very bad. I will get better with practice of course, but to me it just seems like fire might be the way to go for phase 3.
What I would also like to know is what the difference is between the two specs once we get to phase 4.
