spellsteal does work, but it fizzles a buff from yourself. fireblast is best for removing spell reflects

Been using fireblast for reflects as well. I'm guessing decurse or something is best for Dark sims?

decurse or fireblast for dark dim, atm fireblast is complete trash unless u have impact. 30 yard range, deals about 2.5k damage. complete shit spell lol

another reason its so good to use fireblast on reflects is because of the way the new impact talent works. u can blow ur fireblast, then ur next lance has a chance to reset ur fireblast CD and give it a stun. theres no reason to use any other spell for reflects unlesss you already have an impact proc

Non crit ice lance without FoF hits for about the same as a noncrit fireblast, same thing for crit lance without FoF and crit fireblast, however fireblast costs around 3.5k mana whereas ice lance is around 1k so it varies

slow fall


for spell reflect the best spells are icelance and fireblast. icelance if u dont have a fof proc up and otherwise fireblast. if u have an fof proc up and the 30yd range of fireblast isnt enough, use spellsteal. thats it

Passing on a message I got in a PM from a non-Junkie, Aleetah

I wanted to post the following comment on the Mage Basics thread; if you can paste it for me that would be great:

I wanted to just say thanks for all this great info!
I've been playing a mage and raiding since Vanilla, but never got into pvp (even though I'm on a pvp server...followed friends). I always felt too far behind the 8 ball to be able to keep up. My guildies recently begged me to join the 5 v 5 team but I didn't know what to do to get ready, and now I do.

I dedicate all future melted / frozen / blasted faces to you guys.

-A


Great work.

Great work, I think it really helps those who aren't experienced with the mage class! I also got some interesting points and bought Dalaran's int after I read this thread, thanks! ;)

Some things you might wanna add:
I recommend you to add "Glyph of Armors" which increases the duration of armors by 30 minutes. I rarely see mages using it although it is really helpful. I had a 3on3 as WMD against RMP and both my warrior and their rogue died, so we ended up having a 2on2 as mage/druid against mage/priest.
We finally won after ~40 min because their mage didn't realize that his Mage Armor expired and we won because he was oom. Really situational, but it might win you 1 out of 1000 games :P

The Glyph of Blink is also an alternative to Glyph of Ice Barrier imho.

Enchanting

* Three new bracer enchants are available. They increase Agility by 50, Strength by 50, or Intellect by 50 respectively. Item level 300 or higher required. These new recipes are rare world drops.
* Enchant Off-Handed - Superior Intellect now increases Intellect by 40, down from 100.

Those who are enchanting int on all their pieces might wanna know, that there is a new int enchant on bracers. The offhand-enchant has to be updated too.

No great mistakes there, however you could be a bit more efficient with your stats by using the 201 spell pen cape (instead of mastery), put 50 int on it, then keep the 50 spen in gloves, make your pants and belt 20 int 20 hit in the blue sockets then you can reforge out of your hit in your neck and maybe reforge out of hit on your bracers or ring. Oh and put int + resil on helm / shoulders instead of the PvE enchants, as a mage you're trained 90% of games.

I did one for ya with a few tweaks, http://chardev.org/?profile=67385
