    I notice a few issues that can easily be fixed.&#160; Your shoulder and head enchants need to be switched to the non-resilience ones.&#160; Wherever possible use Hit > Dmg > Haste > Crit when looking at gear/gems if you plan on staying arcane. Arcane has a very small crit modifier.

    You need to get the Chaotic meta gem. Your yellow gems should be Sp/Haste. I would suggest trying frostfire.

    The damage aspect of Arcane relies on a lot of points. You're currently using a Glyph of Mirror Image... This needs to be changed to Glyph of Arcane Missiles. You are losing 25% crit chance right off the bat here. Your crit percentage being as low as 13% base is going to hurt your overall damage per mana. I would recommend a few gear upgrades as well. Switch our your Meta with Chaotic. These few things will help.

    ...and I would strongly advise you to lay down the pipe.

    Glyphs of Arcane Blast, Arcane Missiles, and Molten Armor are ideal for arcane PVE dps.

    Your spec is good, minus having Student of the Mind and Prismatic Cloak. Ditch it and pick up some Arcane Stability and Magic Attunement, the pushback protection and range are much more valuable than the fraction of a percent of crit you'll get from the extra spirit.

    You're .55% over the hit cap, and you'll often get an extra 3% or 4% in raids from buffs. I would suggest dropping the Mark for another trinket if you have one, and only swap it in when you need the extra hit.

    As mentioned, swap your meta the the Chaotic meta, and switch sp/crit gems for sp/haste. You'll need a couple purple gems to activate the new meta, I suggest sp/spirit gems.

    Didn't read the full post but. The talents were fine but, U shouldn't spec for Prismatic Cloak imo, get Magic Attunement instead for longer range with arcane spells. And you should NOT gem with crit as arcane(Meta gem should be the crit+critdmg tho). SP>Haste>crit.

    Glyph of Mana Gem can be used instead of Molten Armour. Using Mage Armour instead of Molten is only a 50 dps loss..

    This I am guessing is no longer the case now that Molten armor gets a bonus from spirit. Personally while im progressing through Ulduar I am using glyph of mana gem. As soon as i get a feel for the fights I will be switching to Molten armor. I haven't been to EJ in a while so I'm not sure on the numbers, but molten armor HAS to provide more then a 50 dps bonus over mage armor as of patch 3.1

    That information was true in 3.09.

    Now it is better for some fights (short ones) but I like using mage armor for most of the fights but I would stick with Glyph of arc miss, arcane blast and mana gem (use to be mage armor)

    Nope 3.2k-3.8k is far from good. Specc 20/51/0 to start with and fix your glyphs. molten armor, fireball and LB glyph.
