    LVL 60 Mage Vanilla Content

    Hi there!

    Me and some guildies are forming a vanilla wow guild in 2-3 months and I was curious about speccs!

    I was thinking Frost be the really... old-school feeling :P But then I thought wth, won't I get bored? (I get bored easily, hybrids win) So I thought, anyone of you guys managed to make a cool arcane build or something? I tried some but can't really think of any rotations since well.. no AB or barrage, wth ^^'
    Maybe something using a arcane / frost build for proccing barrage? What I'm afraid of here is itemization and lack of mana :P

    What are your thoughts?

    Thanks in advance

    All I can say is prepare to get bored tbh :P
    Level 60 the best spec was frost due to the resistances/immunities of certain bosses to fire..
    Arcane just wasnt viable ><
    Fire didnt do enough DPS.
    Frost tho; You need one button. Srrsly.
    Frostbolt is your friend!

    I'm gonna use one ounce of brainpower and assume that he's talking about MC/BWL/Ony, the earlier, more popular, and most played raids of vanilla WoW. Original Naxx was seen by less than 5% of the population and was around for like 4 months before TBC came out.

    Yes, Fire was good in Naxx40. But Naxx40 doesn't even exist anymore, so I have no idea why you thought this would be even remotely relevant.

    Considering it also applied in AQ40, also known as the only level 60 content left that means anything even for an all level 60 raid, I'd say it's quite relevant.
    Actually, Mr. Lennon, I CAN imagine a world with no hatred, religion, war, or violence.
    I can also imagine attacking such a world, because they would never see it coming.

    The relevance I was questioning was his bringing up Naxx40. Which has 0 to do with AQ.

    Fire was viable even back in MC - you had to respec for the Ragnaros & Nefarian Firstkills, but once that was running, you could go with fire all the way.

    Don't be afraid of the end of the world (of warcraft). Be afraid of the unlived life.

    Ok, as for 60Level Mage Talents you can choose between three (3) specs.
    1) Arcane-Fire. Up to Arcane Power and rest in Fire.
    2) Arcane-Frost. Up to Arcane Power and rest in Frost.
    3) Deep Fire.

    These are the three (3) specs used for PvE pre-BC.

    Hope this helped,

    Extremely Wrong Ellunder. Do not judge only by two (2) or so bosses, especially if you did not see the content yourself mate. Deep Frost was never, let me repeat, NEVER a good spec for PvE back then. If you were to be Frost you were Arcane Frost.

    I was deep Frost through all of BWL and into AQ40 and Naxx. We had mostly Frost mages but we did have a couple of die-hard Fire fans. The way it worked was you chose which spec you preferred playing and you went with that. If it meant that you fired off Frostbolts as a fire mage because a boss was completely immune to fire, then so be it.

    As for TBC, I was Fire through the whole thing (although A'lar was a bit of a pain, hahaha), although I never did get to see Hyjal or BT pre-WotLK.

    So the choice is yours. And people are right: you will no doubt get bored with level 60 content; especially considering how talents have changed in the last 2 1/2 years.

    Wtf are you talking about, frost was perfectly viable up till aq40, it worked in aq40 aswell, but impact scorch was a nice thing to have on Sartura.

    "Viable", ofcourse it was Viable, but its Dps could never be compared to an Arcane-Fire/Frost or DeepFire Mage.
