When do mages start being more powerful while leveling?

#1DoomDenPosted 1/2/2013 8:39:56 AM
So far I've leveled a mage to 23, specced frost. And he is weak as hell. I have all three guild heirlooms, yet I'm consistantly the bottom of the dps chart and it takes me forever to kill anything... The only abilities I really have that I can use are Frostbolt and Ice Lance. Should I respec Arcane for a while?

Once you get Shatter and Fingers of Frost.

that and im sure the other people your grouping with have the 3 looms you have plus the jp chest, shoulders and weapon. which play a huge factor in dps

right now the dps is something like arcane > fire >>>>>>>>> frost

once you get living bomb you'll shoot up, but maybe respeccing would help

they're very strong later so stick with it and it'll be worth it but warlocks are stronger and allegedly more fun

Wrong, dps will shoot up once you get your full kit, i'd also recommend getting full heirlooms for the ultimate OP experience. Remember, even if your mage starts out crappy, they're the most consistently strong class in pvp/pve.

Fingers of Frost helped a lot. I'll get arcane as an offspec at 30 and see if that's better for now.
