Just a couple of suggestions and additions:

1.For Major Glyphs, (obviously depending on your comp) is Glyph of Icy Veins. Very helpful as another means to get away and kite/control many classes. Especially since you can use that in correlation with a Blink(talented run) and/or makes certain when you pop IV your casts are going to be the fastest possible, and as always, you get 2 with proper management of Cold Snap.

2. Cloak Enchants - 70 spell penetration (178+70=248) Will cap your spell pen with 1 slot, and let you itemize/reforge/gem your other stats (crit) elsewhere.

3. Your 2s & 3s comp are a bit slim, as I've seen Mage/Feral, Ret/Mage, Mage/Dk & Mage/DK/rDruid & Mage/Enhance/rDruid all very high, and played a lot. Nonetheless you were correct in most of your points.

I just feel most of the reason people come to AJ is for clear cut plans for certain comps, and there could be a lot more added to that particular section.

Nonetheless. Very nice guide!

With the Vicious Cloak you will have 201 Spell penetration without gemming or enchanting spell pen wich is cap against eveyrthing else xpt mages and felhunters (them also having some kind of resist aura on)

But other points taken in concideration I'll keep updating my thread tho this was mostly ment to help mages gear and start up pvping not to tell them what setups to play(that was just a side note to get them started).

Get 3/3 freeze.


FFOrb is debatable because it's rarely useful. If they ever fix it to actually target people most of the time it's probably a lot less debatable. As it stands you can launch it directly through the person hitting you/that you are hitting and it will never pick them as a target. :(

as I said, the SECOND build I have there is the "cookie-cutter" spec. not counting the points in fire but thats the "basic" frost. Rest of them are pretty much up to you and personal preference as said manymany times (:

Disagreeing with Draenei as #2 in alliance, imo goes something like this:
Dwarf > Nelf/Gnome > Human > Worgen > Draenei.

Human with double pve trinkets isn't really viable since mages are trained every game, and for the same reason I don't see myself going apeshit DPS either, more like trying to get melee scum off me and trying to poly something. Therefore races with defensive racials prevail imo, while draenei heal can be purged as i heard, and 1% hit isn't worth not having a racial basically

you could go into more depth about how to setup shatters and so on. what to do when target isnt frozen etc (press ice lance harder :D).

general play that might improve someone new to mage.

Good guide though, gonna be leveling my mage up soon now that the first toon is done.
