Mage DPS Spec, Builds, and Talents

Arcane Frost (40/0/21)

Commonly uses 3 x Frostbolt as a filler

 

Very minimal Flexibility in point allotment (2 points in Magic Absorb could go elsewhere in Tier 1-4 but not a lot to get, can choose points between Frost Channeling and Arctic Reach)

 

 

 

Arcane Fire (40/18/3)

Allows maintenance of Scorch Debuff to improve Fire DPS across the raid

 

Commonly uses 5 x Scorch as a filler

 

Very minimal Flexibility in point allotment (2 points in Magic Absorb could go elsewhere in Tier 1-4 but not a lot to get, can choose to max Incineration or Burning Soul)

 

 

 

Fire Icy Veins no Clearcasting (2/45/11)

3 Flex Points -> Can go Incineration, Improved FS, Improved FB, Arcane Focus.

 

It is worth noting that Arcane Focus impacts Counterspell/Spellsteal

Less DPS, More Mana

How much Spell Hit do I need?

3% for the Same Level

 

4% for 1 Level Below

 

5% for 2 Levels Below

 

16% for 3 Levels Below (Boss Mobs)

 

 

FYI:

Elemental Precision gives 3% hit for Fire, but 6% hit for Binary Frost spells (Frostbolt, CoC, etc)

 

 

What are the conversions for rating?

1% Spell Hit = 12.62

 

1% Spell Crit = 22.08
