Winter's Chill Build

Note that you can also see this build on bobo-talents that offers the feature of listing the talent order. In addition, you can easily import your build directly into the game thanks to the Talent Sequence addon.

This build is necessary to use for one mage in a raid to increase the damage of all the other mages!

Indeed, this build is centered around the Winter's Chill talent which increases the critical strike chance of all Frost spells by 10%. It does less damage than the Arcane Power Frost Build, but the buff is essential to increase the damage of all the other mages in the raid.

If you are designated to use this build, your main role is to spam Frostbolt as soon as possible until Winter's Chill is stacked up five times.

Finally, this build allows better survivability thanks to talents like Ice Block and Ice Barrier.


Arcane Power Frost Build

Note that you can also see this build on bobo-talents that offers the feature of listing the talent order. In addition, you can easily import your build directly into the game thanks to the Talent Sequence addon.

This build is the best raiding and dungeon build before the Ahn'Qiraj availability in phase 5 simply because a lot of bosses and monsters in Molten Core and Blackwing Lair are immune to Fire spells, so Frost ones are logically most effective.

Basically, it consists in using continuously the Frostbolt spell, which is the best single target DPS frost spell available to mages. Because the Frostbolt spell is also very mana efficient, you can freely focus on damage gear rather than mana regeneration one.


Combustion Fire Build

Note that you can also see this build on bobo-talents that offers the feature of listing the talent order. In addition, you can easily import your build directly into the game thanks to the Talent Sequence addon.

This build is the best raiding build for Ahn'Qiraj and Naxxramas where bosses and monsters are not anymore immune to Fire damage.

However, while Fire spells are supposed to do more damage, keep in mind that they also cost more mana, so make sure to have a proper mana regeneration gear before using this build. Also, the Ignite talent is very powerful but must be coupled with gear containing stats which improve your critical strike chances.
