Hey. Y'know, I take good care of my Mage... but I'm just stumped. I'm not sure if it was due to having a bad day, and being slightly depressed, or how I never got a chance to do a full rotation, or got a bad series of non-crits, but I failed at DPS last night. I went to 25 ICC with my guild mates, and we proceeded to kill everything from Marrowgar, to opening up the paths to Blood Queen, and Putricide. (We're saving those for tomorrow night)
What I'm getting at is, I'm willing to chance my spec, or my rotation, or my gems/enchants, whether or not I wield a staff, or Mainhand/offhand, but I need to see a chance in some numbers here. I was out-DPS'd by a Fury warrior, two Hunters, a few rogues, a two paladins, which left me at 6, 500 DPS(Overall), with the Hunter leading the charts with 9,800 DPS(Overall).
I see other Mages like Happyhour on my realm, who've got gear not too shy from mine doing amazing damage... Or my Guild leader, Liutier busting out mad DPS. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong.
My usual single-target Rotation is Arcane Blastx4, followed by a Arcane Missiles regardless of Missile Barrage proc. My AoE is usually a spamming of Flamestrike, or if I'm feeling different, Flamestrike followed by Blizzard.
Here's my Armory Link- http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Uldaman&cn=Akshun
I focus mainly on Haste, trying to cap it at around 700-800, and gemming for Spellpower when I can. I'm an Engineer, so the Rocket Boots enchant is better than Icewalker due to the better crit, and my lack of need for Hit. As for the Gloves, it's like an extra trinket giving me 340 Haste rating every minute.
I'm willing to try Fire/TTW, or Frost, or even make FFB my mainspec. Is my Arcane spec not right? Please, help out a fellow Mage.
