However, if adds are not important — AND are not close to the boss — you should ignore them and focus all of your dps only on the boss.
If the adds are important, then LB them all the same. To give examples: At Onyxia, you should LB all whelps and shoot Pyros at her or at the big add on need.
Highest AoE damage comes from Flamestrike spam it's greater than LB spam , provided enemies are not moving.
Hey, if you have a loud clock in your room, that helps too! The last advice is to tell you to "avoid" casting Fire Blast while spamming Fireball.
If your previous spell did crit and Fire Blast does not, you have just wasted your possible Hot Streak. Avoid casting it within rotation at any rate, damage-per-second is not worth it the higher geared you are, and if you furthermore lose a Hot Streak due to its lower crit, its two steps back on the damage done.
Speaking of low damage, if you ever get interrupted PAY MORE ATTENTION!! The easiest and the laziest way to keep yourself stockpiled is to park an alt with herbalisam right outside The Slave Pens leftmost dungeon.
When you enter, you start in zero 0 shaped area, with a corridor leading to next room. Flame Cap is on the very right as you enter that room.
Get caps and run out. Takes you 2min! Reset dungeon and re-enter. Repeat four more times. Voila, Flame Caps in 10min of playing. Do it six times a day and its Flame Caps in an actual hour spent farming.
Happy herbing! Sure, and its real simple: Login to game, buff yourself Molten Armor and Arcane Intellect.
Mouseover your crit to see Fire spell school. Yes, Fireball, because that's your spam spell. Fire Mage gearing up in WotLK [Fire3].
T9 2 set bonus is If you were to equip two T9 pieces and all the best spirit gear from ICC and gem it with pure spirit and activate Molten Armor — that bonus would remain.
You further boost that crit by having enough pure crit sockets in your normal gear and your Fireball crit will be over Congratulations on… Blizzard bug exploiting?
Avoid using more. SP holds more value, but optimizing your gear is what matters. Use as you will, results can't disappoint.
Engineering enchant is best. Gnome's increased intellect provides you with the most critical strike chance and bigger mana pool; and Escape Artist can remove any snares or roots helpful!
It doesn't work with some buffs, but you can bring it into rotation. Forsaken don't get any beneficial racial that help you dps, but most agree that they do have the most awesome casting animation in the game, so they have that going for them, which is nice.
They can also remove Fear and Charm and Sleep effect s , and that's useful-ish Tremor Totem is there? Note on blacksmithing is that sockets can contain any gem, not just spellpower.
Smith mage tho, hmmm You as a Mage are in the raid to wreck havoc!. But before that Finally, check if your Mana Gem is on three stacks.
Or troll your party and make portals to wherever and forever. Mana Gem — In general, use one charge when you can refill your mana to almost full and then use again on cooldown.
Being an instant use, you are not interrupting your dps, unlike when you need to Evocate. If you find yourself using all three charges and still needing more, conjure fresh gems ASAP if possible e.
Lich King has 15min enrage timer, conjure new during transition phases. If you are using T7 2 set, aim to use it with any dps cooldown.
Evocation — "Use it when it's convenient". Number two, when you're not pushing dps. Dead dps does zero dps, but, you're alive, and doing zero dps?
WTF mate? Don't lose ticks! Additionally, use your wards if they help with absorbs. You will lose more mana than you gain.
Aim to use them tactfully, there are always periods when healing is a bit problematic. Also aim to use it to "save" your Evocation.
Ice Block — Don't waste this cooldown! Do note that going out of Ice Block brings you back to the threat list as you were, so let tank get some more agrro back first.
However, if you pull agrro and use Iceblock to protect yourself , you will not be able to use it to get rid of X bad debuff on you or to protect yourself from high damaging nukes.
Having one target less to heal up can make a difference, especially on 10man. You can use this ability to drop threat temporarily, but if you keep having threat issues with a specific tank or encounter due to X reason, be careful as it ends, you might be blazing red.
Save Ice Block as second measurement if not third in cases when the adds are freezable and are not ranged. Saving this for over-agrro is not ideal.
Invisibility — This ability is bug-ish on most private servers. Blizzlike, using Invisibility acts like threat drop mechanic until you get out again and your threat is restored.
Furthermore, it should not drop raid encounter combat. If it is bugged and makes you lose combat 1 usage is to reset pot duration, and maybe even eat your strudels during the encounter yourself; or you can use it as instant threat drop.
If you wish, get Glyph of Blink replace Molten Armor to be able to blink back from any point. In general sense, Amplify Magic is a great thing on encounters with high physical damage and Dampen Magic with lots of magical damage.
While dpsing, remember that you have small raid utility arsenal. They have priority over your job to deal damage, so stop dpsing and DO it!
Remove Curse — Sometimes it is you who has to do it. Healers that can dispel curses are shamans and druids only you and druid can do it naturally, shamans need a resto talent, and asking feral to dispel over you makes them lose shapeshift and that's not good.
Check macro section to dispel on mouseover to hover over the raid frame for easy use and not dropping your target. Counterspell — 24sec cooldown is long, but sometimes that's all the raid has and you will often be assigned to interrupt some specific things in at least one encounter in every raid instance.
Check macro section for using counterspell on focus. Avenging Wrath Paladin Champion in ToC. Vampiric Might fanatics on Lady Deathwhisper in ICC.
Also useful to save the tank if adds can be slowed or rooted if s he's taking too much damage. Slow — In case you have it and some add is quite bothersome, use it on them to slow them down or slow their casting.
Only rogues and warlocks can reduce casting times with their class arsenal; hunters can do it too with Snake Trap but it's not that effective; although BM hunters can use a pet with same ability.
Staying alive by Bee Gees. No matter how good you have mastered your class, it's all for naught if you end up dying or making a raid-wiping mistake.
ALL of this text is not as important as it is to stay alive. WotLK expansion is about Enrage timers. Beat that dps clock.
Mage is a powerful dps class, but you're of no use to anyone dead and certainly are making a clown of yourself if you cannot follow the tactics.
Therefore, adapt. Do your homework. Regarding your survival, first thing to do is to keep that threat meter at an eye's glance, more so if you're crit-lucky Fire Mage with insane Ignite ticks or Arcane with all the boosts the raid can give.
There's also an option to have Magic Absorption talented I actually suggest it in TTW Fire spec. Best examples from personal experience are Freya hardmode and Lord Marrowgar heroic note: both encounters at the time were both pre-nerf and buffed up, so they were doing some more damage than it's usual.
Marrowgar's Bonestorm hc hurts no matter where you are, Ice Armor is mandatory for survival swap back to Molten when he stops spinning.
Those are the fights where SS and ES are welcomed if you cannot survive the burst or consistent physical damage. Raid debuffs which improve your dps:.
Before I go on, I'd like to stress one important detail: Mage is not essential for any raid group. How do you get into a raid group? Why would people want you?
The answer is damage and food table. But buff-wise, we're mostly overlooked. Our interrupt is on 24sec CD, longest in the game!
But we do give Polymorph. The point I am trying to make is that for better or for worse, we're selfish. Learn how to survive proper positioning, knowing tactics , be on time with utility awareness and deal insane damage A lways B e C asting!
If you run out of places to make new macros, download BindPad addon! Arcane Macros:. It also clears Ice Block for fast dps resume.
Focus or specific NAMED target, unimportant. Fire Macros: Fire enjoys casting on multiple enemies. All of my fire dps spells have mouseover and focus modifiers.
Try NOT to have it in above two macros; sometimes you want to use personal CDs and potions separately.
Make these two binds next to each other for easy use when you want full burst mode on. With ctrl modifier you cast it on your focus target, and with shift mod you cast it on your mouseover.
Be mindful, Blink is on global cooldown! You can mash this button without fear of canceling it. You can always jump-use it or mash two buttons if the moment is very movement intensive.
Second use removes Ice Block. Stop drinking tea and get fat with magic! Type in any message, I just gave a silly example.
SHIFT modifier will use Spellsteal on your current target regardless of mouseover. CTRL will polymorph your focus and ALT will cast FM.
CTRL is the same, but for focus. Sticky targeting is there, but no keybind to drop target other than ESC which can ruin some other actions?
Type down correct saved set names complete with capital letters e. In priority it uses flying mount first, land second so you always fly if you can.
CTRL modifier brings up vendor mount. Alt casts Slow Fall. It will attempt to consume strudels first. If there are no strudels, it will attempt to use normal drink.
The game automatically swaps PvP panel tabs after you finish a battleground. Queue again infinitely with a single keybind, pronto!
If you change trinket by click or key, you are changing your other upper slot — recognized as Important-ish PvE targeting macros: A helpful bunch that get the job done without any fuss.
These macros are designed to ease targeting on few raid encounters. Tar1, Tar2 and Tar3 help targeting bosses and adds easier.
In ToCr, Faction Champion encounter, you are required to CC two mobs with Polymorph. Use approach that's more comfortable for you. Use above for manual targeting and casting, ideal if you have kill target on focus with addon telling your Polymorph status.
Sets them on focus. Targets your last target kill target and casts Polymorph on your focus. Make two of these macros if not three.
Second for rocket pack for Gunship. Third for Sister Svalna. Fourth for Sindragosa ICC weekly. Bottom three are for drakes in Occulus. This topic is slightly controversial.
For casual raiding, default UI can work. But that itself is the problem the harder you bite the game — the information is either at odd locations, can be barely visible, and that's if it is there in the first place.
So let me help you step by step. What should my user interface look like? The first advice is to clear the clutter. All raid-unimportant information should be hidden and your screen should be free as much as possible to allow you clear view of the encounter area and distinctly display you encounter-crucial information as well as the status of your team.
Weak Auras for more distinct debuff tracking and encounter timers modified WA, DBM, DXE so you can react on time. How do I begin to optimize my user interface?
Which addons should I get? Now I will list you few addons to begin with. If any addon function is unclear, google it out and google for any other addons you'd like.
Here is the list of most recommended addons to edit your user interface to raiding environment alphabetical-ish order :.
In a nutshell, you want clean and centralized UI. The whole point of editing your UI is to make you perform better by having better view of what's going on and raising your awareness levels and thus your reaction times and understanding of what's going down.
There are other addons that I could suggest you to get for quality of life changes, but I decided cut that from this forum version and focus only on interface and raiding information.
Oh, and regardless of your UI, do organize your bags! Sometimes you loot encounter-important temporary items which you need to use!
Bad itemization will yield poor results, so here's a reminder: Arcane wants haste; if non-set item doesn't have haste, it's probably bad! And both specs shun spirit as stat if possible!
These lists are for 25man. Download Atlasloot and WoW-Equip addons and browse raid loots, crafts and emblems and come up with your own designs — or use rawr, or other sources.
Start by replacing items with hit for more haste, crit or spirit instead and there you go. I find it important to reveal to you that cloth armor proficiency is often used by leather, mail and plate users alike.
You dislike having items with spirit; but so do some other casters; and their best in slot item is in fact cloth.
Hate it as you will, some non clothies will take cloth off your hands and be prepared to grind your teeth a little.
Lastly, if you disagree with BiS list, contact me with all information on hand. I made this using my head what would be best.
