Fire Mage Class Overview
Welcome to my Fire Mage DPS guide for World of Warcraft WotLK 3.3.5a. This will be a short guide describing what Talents, Glyphs, Gems and Enchants you will need in order to succeed in a raid. In the end of the guide there are also some tips and basic rotation for the class.
Fire Mage is a stable single- and multi target DPS. One of the two really damaging specs in the Mage talent tree. Little to no mana problems and easy rotation make this spec excellent for new players.
Here we have two builds. The first one has the Frostfire bolt spell as a main source of DPS. This build is better with low gear level.
The second build is for players with BiS or pre-BiS gear. Fireball is the main dps spell here.
Gems are used to get your stat caps depending on what you lack, so it is situational.
