    Hello fellow Mages !

    I've got a sometrinkets, but can't find the setup that best serve my DPS in raids and Mythics !


    I've got these trinkets;

    Icon of Rot(905) -
    Wriggling Sinew (870) -
    Aran's Relaxing Ruby w/150+mastry gem (860)
    Fury of the Burning Sky(890) - (mine says 288,146 fire dmg )
    Unstable Arcanocrystal (865) -
    Whispers in the Dark (925) ( 53% for 12 sec, nad 21sec for 8 sec mine says)

    I've simmed some combos and gotten these numbers, but not sure about the combo is good or not.
    Dark+Unstable = 437,395
    Rot+Unstable = 436,463
    Fury+Unstable = 430,702
    Dark+Rot = 417,063
    Fury+Dark = 411,370
    Fury+Rot = 410,225

    Sorry for no Armory and Trinket links, but i was not allowed to post any links yet! but you can find at " /wow/en/character/sylvanas/Thesala/simple "

    Thanks for the input and help

    Hello,

    One of my newest Arcane Mages is learning how to raid and has decent gear. She is struggling to understand her spec and I have never played a mage so I could use all the help. Like I said, she's new to raiding, so no worries if she's doing something completely wrong.

    Here are some logs from a normal run we did with her.

    Thank you very much

    Hi Guys,

    Kinda new here, but heard this was the place to go ^^
    At the moment i play Arcane mage for our ToS Progress, happen to like the spec, as i came from fire.

    I am struggeling with my DPS to keep it steady throughout the raid. At the moment it's too inconsistent.
    When there is movement involved i drop big numbers on my DPS.
    Now i know that it is not to overcome, but if there might be a chance to krank up my dps a bit it will eventually smooth out the numbers i think.

    On fights with low movement i can get down around 800k, but when the movement is high i easaly drop to 500k or even lower. So i don't know if im missing something in my rotation, movement or gear at the moment. I would love some advice on this one.

    Hello,

    I would like if possible to get some help with my spec/gear progress. I've been away for quite a while and I was wondering what to do to get my dps up a bit, as I currently get around 500-550k Yes, those are the only 2 legendaries I have.

    Hi, and welcome back to the game.

    Unfortunately, Arcane is really legendary dependant in order to perform optimally. Without ring and expecially legs your dps will definetly not skyrocket, mainly because you will have to stack enough mastery to sustain your burn/conserve phases without going oom to soon, which is something you do not want with your legos.

    Therefor, my main advice is to give a try to the Frost spec. It does wonders even without the right legendaries.

    Regardless what your decision will be, here's a link to Altered Time, which is the main Mage Community besides the Mage Discord Channel: you will find plenty of infos in here to min/max every aspect of your character.

    Hello,

    Currently I am torn between playing Fire or Frost (leaning more towards fire) and had some questions on gearing, mainly on relinquished token buying. I wondering if it's better to buy tokens that will bump my iLvl up more or if to try and get proper trinkets/legos for my spec.

    Hey there.

    To answer your question, i'd say that a good balance is the key to everything. First and foremost, you still need to increase your overall itemlvl as much as possibile, because that will give you the greatest increase in your overall performance, regardless of stats or the legendaries you have.

    Once your ilvl is around a healthy 920ish, then you can start considering simming yourself for your stats priority and working on your legendaries.

    Fire is THE most legendary dependent spec in the game, and you are going to have a hard time getting anywhere without your wrists (mandatory) and your belt (or your Time Warp ring, it's less powerful but still fine).

    Frost, on the other hand, is absolutely fine without its best legendaries, and i would definetly recommend it while gearing up and getting your character on track stat wise, cause it is a fair bit less important for Frost to behave properly then it is for Fire (although both require a lot of work to give their best, but that can be said for all classes/specs... except Rogues. They just murder regardless.)

    Hope this helps. Enjoy your gaming!

    Thank you for the response.

    I figured as much that iLvl > all at the moment, having that reassurance is good. I actually have been using Frost for my daily driver while having Fire as my loot spec. Once I've reached that point, I'll definitely come back for any more advice for min/maxing.
