View Full Version : Mage Arcane pve dps questions

For a pve spec, I could see why Slow wouldn't be taken because bosses are immune to things like that. Two questions however:

TTW = How does that kick in when you're not slowing (without slow or frostbolt) or stunning mobs unless for the possibility that's the doing of people in your group?

Arcane barrage - I'm lvling my mage, got to 60 and picked it up and now I wonder why the wowwiki build doesn't use it.

Just two questions I had that I'd like answered.

Lots of things trigger TTW, such as Thunderclap, Judgements of the Just, etc. It doesn't have to be you applying the slow/attack speed slow, it can be anyone in the group/raid.

I'd ignore WoWwiki when it comes to that talent build. Arcane Barrage is useful for on the move or when wanting to do a burst of damage.

But for slow in a pve situation....could I just use that pt better elsewhere?
