Leveling as Arcane?
Return to board index
Ive just started a mage, and Im about lvl 10...
My questions are:
Is leveling as Arcane efficient?
How is it compared to Fire and Frost?
Read the stickies for a good idea about the class.
Arcane is not efficient
Frost > fire > arcane for efficieny ie less drinking between mobs. With frost you can slow a mob so it never hits you, with fire you can kill a mob before it hits you, with arcane... you get one AM off then use wand spec to finish the mob off. Seriously I tried arcane to level and thats what its like :p
Ok, thanks for the fast reply :P
Ok, so i have been an Arcane Mage since my mid 50's (70 now waiting to get to 80) and i didn't find it very difficult to lvl at all, if anything it got easier. Your a mage, you can conjure food and water that plus getting some good +intelect gear to increase your mana pool is a good thing to have as arcane. As to the just geting one Am off and the mob is on you, well thats what frost nova, blink, and slow are for. Just because your spec is arcane doesn't mean you cant open with a fireball. and dont forget you get Arcane Blast as well.
it might be ok to level from level 50 as arcane you have the talent points, spells and knowledge of a mage to support it.
for the post z00p said he is lvl 10 so going to be spending his first talent point and has no blink as of yet so for now, as previously said go frost (my advice) or fire this will speed things as a lot more and then when you have lvled up some then you can think about a respecc
This might be a little off-topic, but Arcane is only good if you are multi-boxing. I currently have 2 accounts and am leveling 2 mages simultaneously. Arcane is the way to go. I just run into a mob or room and aggro everything. Then spam hit Arcane Explosion. Everything dies within seconds. So easy to level and so much fun.
I would have to disagree, it may be useful for multi boxing, but in no way is that the only time Arcane is useful
I levelled as Arcane from the beginning, and I was fine.
Read the link in my sig. It has some useful information on how to play Arcane. :)
yay arcane faithfuls. same here i found it easier to level my arcane than it was to level my frosty. mana efficiency is just fine.
