Elemental Mage --- Allround BG/Arena --- Fire-Heavy Shatter

Recommended Posts

Back in the Day I used to make Elemental work as much as possible no matter the expansion.

PROs:
insane burst and control in Melee vs Melee
no 3min CD dependent
non standard specc, less known by enemies
10-12%crit on gear is enough
insane control in BGs

CON:
mana hungry,
gear dependent (Haste,Int)
much less forgiving to play than frost
no imp. counterspell
 

While in classic this was no problem, the "ele" in TBC faces a few challenges.
 

- Shatter requires Melee to proc from FoF/Armor or F.Nova. Dragon Breath, our Main control is also Melee-Range
- Resilience will seriously gimp your burst (I am not complaining, it was a necessary mechanic change at the time)
- Haste (we want to be able to cast a 3.5s Fireball within a 2.8s time window[with Icy Veins])
- DragonBreath shares cd with CoC
 

I can not find my old spec but this should be it (will update once I maxed my mage)
