I dunno, I am pretty good at reducing aggro with my Mage. Ice Block gives the tank time to pull mobs back. Mirror Image takes the aggro from you and puts it on the images. Invisibility drops aggro over 3 seconds as well.

My biggest beef with my Mage right now is my fire spec. I love it, it is very fun, but man my DPS fluctuates terribly because the spec is based almost completely upon crits for everything to proc. When I get a decent amount of crits, I can pull around 10k. But if I don't, I drop to around 7k and that is annoying to me and everyone in my group.

And yeah, I understand about wrath heroics. I started at the tail end of the BC expansion so by the time I was 80, the Heroics were a bit easier than when they came out. So I gotcha on that.

i really really REALLY missed my Arcane/Frost spec.... it was great for pve and pvp, dont remember the numbers, but i had up to Icy Veins (the 20% haste} the rest arcane, so i had an additional +6% to hit from specs and i think it was -12% aggro from specs. on boss fights shammy would hit bloodlust/heroism for haste buff, soon as that dropped hit my Icy Veins plus i had a ton into Haste making my Arcane Blasts less then a second cast during those times and Arcane Missles with Proc were practically insta 5 shot spell.... even in heroics with mostly level 232 gear and a few 251's i was able to hit 9k dps on boss fights and never even came close to pulling any aggro. maybe thats why they wanted to change things.

as for my story on aggro issues, with my new arcane spec after the cata patch, we are in ICC 25 and on Lich King. boss fight starts were all in back tank pulls him to us, i wait a few seconds and start and 3rd Arcane Blast in a row crits and i have aggro, Ice Block and he resets goes back to tank, i hit my 4th Blast and it crits again, hit Missiles and couple of them crit and send my Arcane Barrage wich isnt a crit but again it pulls aggro and im dead.... I know it sounds like a Tank issue, but same tank before the patch and i never pulled off him ever...



i dunno... i used to love the game, was really looking forward to Cata, was watching all the vids from Beta that i could, even got the CE version of it, was loving the leveling and new zones and the new humor and then i hit 85.... so i turned to my hunter so i could mine the stuff i needed for my blacksmithing and jewelcrafting, was having fun leveling him and feeling like Hunter was good again, and then i hit 85..... and everything just felt... blah... so i turned to my newly made Troll Druid, hit the new zones and lost interest in them pretty quick, turned to feral and PvP and was having a blast and then... blah...


i am kinda missing some things... mostly just /2..... i was a bit of a Trade Chat Troll, not the try and piss on everyones parade and tell them they all suck, but the get drunk and make stupid funny comments, make fun of myself, rip on the guy getting too serious in trade kinda guy. and i have not found any other game where you can be like that yet. Rift was the worst.... that community sucked ass, they took themselves and that game waaaaaay too serious... heh you know i made friends there then before i left lol!

Haha being drunk in trade chat is awesome!!!

In other news, I got exalted with Guardians of Hyjal and got my epic belt from them. Got a heroic cloak and hit i340 last night. One of the core raid groups in my guild is in need of a Mage, so I am thinking I will fill that spot around i346.

This kind of stuff is what I don't understand I've only had this one character and don't do many dungeons or pvp. Mostly because I'm embarrassed when someones telling me to do something and I don't understand what they mean.

I've been made fun of a number of times by other players for being a noob or whatev. Not that it bothers me or anything but I don't feel right holding back a group

Aggro means that something is attacking you. For example, in a dungeon, the tank wants all of the "aggro" or everything attacking him. If you have aggro, it means that something decides to come after you instead.

An aggro reducing ability is a spell of some kind that will help you "drop aggro" which basically means the spell has a good chance to make the enemy stop attacking you.

DPS stands for Damage Per Second. It is usually only tracked in raids/dungeons. You want this number to be as high as possible so you combined with the other DPS players can take down mobs/bosses more efficiently.

Heroics are just harder versions of regular dungeons. The payoff is better though as you obtain betetr gear, more gold and things like that from the Heroic.

Cata = Cataclysm
WotLK = Wrath of the Lich King.
BC = Burning Crusade
Vanilla WoW = The original World of Warcraft

I could help you out with dungeons as well. Just ask me anything you are unsure of and I can tell you maybe what I would do in certain situations.

Oh and don't worry about looking bad, it is part of the learning experience lol.

I knew about the aggro part but what's fire spec? And what did he mean by a decent amount of crits getting his damage per second up? More critical hits affects his average damage in a positive way I'm guessing?

How do you guys know what dps you're doing anyway?
