Which spec should my Mage be as of 5.2?

I'm gonna go with

"Whatever spec you enjoy playing the most."

This is my new sig. It sucks compared to my old one because apparently gfaqs mods have never seen cleavage before. GG.

Elemental. You'll do more damage and have better mobility than any of the mage specs.

Affliction wins there, too, doesn't it? :P

Does Elemental have good mobility, though? I'll have to take a look at their cast-time vs instant-cast stuff after this. Though, I suppose Ghost Wolf helps for all specs in fights where you have to go from A > B.

Frost is the only fun mage spec.

Only two cast time spells, one has a CD and procs to be instant(Lava Burst), the other can be cast while moving with the glyph.(Lightning Bolt) :P
That is for single target only though.

They also have a CD to allow them to cast any spell while moving for 15 seconds.

Pretty good. It is ... but Affliction still wins in mobility, then. Especially at 90 with Kil'jaeden's Cunning.

Still, that's far more mobility than I realised Elemental had and tons more than any of the mage specs. Well-played and posted.
