Renovations are underway here on this fine blog.
See that “Critical” section? Everything on there is in the process of being finalized for Wrath. Work has been going on for some time to get them all up to snuff.
A fair amount of them will likely be reposted. As many of them from the TBC era, leaving them and their comments as is is likely to be extremely confusing.
The new guide to fire raiding just went live, and frost/arcane should be heading up very soon.
Then, I still have to add like a bajillion glyphs to the glyphs guide, update the “gearing up for 70 80 PvP” thing in time for S6…
And so forth.
I’m also trying to keep the guides shorter. I tend to be long-winded and wordy; though nowhere near the level of other bloggers, it’s still something I’d like to cut down.
So anyway. That’s what I’m doing here. Maybe I’ll have time to actually post some original content, though probably not. Such is the price of relevancy!

You need 18 points in the arcane tree (deep enough for 3/3 Torment the Weak) and 51 points in the fire tree (for Living Bomb). The details are largely up to you. Some mages skip Imp. Scorch, some mages get 2/3 in Arcane Meditation for a 20/51/0 build.
Frostfire: Something along the lines of 0/53/18.
Again, the details are largely up to you. Living Bomb is needed, and you also need to get Ice Shards from the frost tree. Getting Piercing Ice, Icy Veins and Frost Channeling is also highly recommended.
See my detailed guides to specific talent trees for further information to choose your talents.
For both specs, Combustion is a very useless cooldown. Highly recommended to not take it.
FFB – Frostfire Bolt, compare FB for Fireball.
HS – Hot Streak, that proc that gives you an instant Pyroblast.
LB – Living Bomb, the end tree talent for fire.
Fire and Frostfire mages have essentially identical spell rotations. Just replace the word “nuke” with Fireball for Fire mages, and Frostfire Bolt for Frostfire mages.
As with most casters in today’s world… of warcraft, fire/frostfire mages do not have a proper spell rotation, merely spell priorities. These are those: (more…)
