The Mage in WoW: WotLK Classic
World of Warcraft’s mages summon massive fireballs, blizzards, and arcane energies to devastate their enemies. If you want to play a magician and cast your spells undisturbed, you should always keep your distance. As a magician you are a ranged class.
wear as a magician her cloth armor – these do not restrict your freedom of movement when casting. However, if you are targeted by an opponent, flee as quickly as possible – cloth armor hardly protects against enemy attacks.
What specialization do I use to level the mage?
Since you are mostly on your own when leveling the magician and no tank keeps the opponents away from you, stuns and slowdowns are immensely important. This avoids unpleasant encounters in close combat. That’s why you play as a Frost Mage on your journey to level 80. The Frozen specialization provides a variety of slows and stuns, which make your virtual life easier. For example, your main attack, Frostbolt, slows down your opponents.
In addition, Frost Mages with the spell “Summon Water Elemental” a pet – the elemental will help you in battle while keeping you company, but only for a limited time. As weapons you should grab a two-handed staff and a magic wand. The two-handed staff gives you the easiest access to the highest number of attributes, especially in the beginning – a one-handed weapon and an off-hand item are much harder to get. You use your wand if you run out of mana or if your opponents are low on life points.
What resources and buffs do Frost Mages use
Mana is the magician’s fuel. This is how you cast all your spells, and if you ever run out of blue juice, it’s quite a problem. However, you can restore it in a number of ways. For one, you conjure up your own bring food and drink, which you use to regenerate between fights. Or you can use the Evocation spell, which drastically increases your mana regeneration. As buffs you bring “Arcane Intelligence” or “Arcane Brilliance”. This increases the intelligence of your group members and your own. You can also protect yourself with magical shields such as Ice Shield or Frost Shield.
What main and secondary attributes do mages need?
As a frost mage, you use specializations just like the other ones Intelligence as the main attribute. This increases the critical hit chance of your spells, while increasing your mana pool and increasing your mana regeneration.
As secondary attributes you collect both spell power and haste. This increases the damage of your spells and you can knock them out faster. Additionally, you should always have some crit rating on your gear so your spells will crit more often. Since the Frost Mage deals up to 100 percent more damage with critical spell hits through his talent “Ice Shards”, this attribute is not to be scoffed at.

How do I play the Frost Mage?
The rotation of the Frost Mage is quite simple and can be learned quickly. Since playing the frosty staff swinger affects the Activation of the procs arrives, you are somewhat dependent on chance. You also have to get used to the fact that you deal the most damage when your targets are frozen. Once you have internalized that, nothing stands in the way of relaxed leveling.
