The fire in my heart

Fire mage's have always been know for their DPS, their mobility, their big crits, and most importantly their pyromaniac tendencies. I for one share these tendencies.

Even through my heart of ice a fire burns within pushing me to swap to fire that one BG just to see all the enemies running around alight, it's not a *problem* but more than once I've lost at the end of the BG and blamed myself for going into that spec that just isn't made for pvp. Don't get me wrong it's got plenty going for it;

Molten Shields-no GCD on your shield is one thing, breaking it into a freeing speed increase, that's a top talent right there
Fire starter- in pvp mobility is key, and you can't beat this when it comes to mobile damage
Molten Fury- target's on the brink of death? of course you want them to burn that bit faster!
Cauterize- 4 seconds of extra life at the least? yes please! all it takes is 1sec o na scorch + pyro and i could of won.
Dragon's Breath- this ability is underestimated, though direct damage breaks it, you can lay down all your dots + drop a combustion + this = one hellofa burn
Combustion-ever hear the term "double the burn" well this is it, with a burst on the top.

Fire has a simple opener as well, mage armor on for Regen+resistances, scorch spam + fire blast's, blast wave to slow, if they get to close you have frost move, dragon's breath, poly morph, mana shield, mage ward.. so much at the disposal to stop them. get a hot streak? pop it + your dot's, combustion + dragons breath,w atch then run in terror as they burn to the ground. simple yes?

For anyone wishing to give it a shot here's My spec :)


P.S. the rift post is still coming just have to get into the next beta nd do a lil mroe on it :P


  1. the complexities of a mage lol. i tried one out once. but they are too squishy for me. then again, any class other than plate is kinda squishy :P

  2. Interesting post. I don't play WoW but I am familiar with the MMO PvP front. Keep these posts coming. Thanks!

  3. I remember my first WoW character which was a mage. But awesome flame picture

  4. i've never rolled a mage, probably the only class.

  5. Wizards/Mages/Magic users have always been my favorite classes in RPG's. I love the way you're writing this blog, keep it up.

  6. Wizards / main is a rogue.

  7. Are you like that lightning bolt LARPer guy, except with fire?
