WoW Mage Leveling Spec

There is plenty of interesting content awaiting your discovery in the newly renovated lands of the World of Warcraft, since Azeroth has been largely reshaped by Deathwing’s coming and the devastation it brought. Leveling new characters is exciting again, with plenty of new quests, quest hubs, changes to once-familiar areas, and beautiful new landscapes where there were once rather dull and ordinary flat areas with trees growing on them (as, for example, in Darkshore). Choosing a good WoW mage leveling spec can enhance your enjoyment of the game yet further, and ease your passage through the lower levels.

The frost specialization is one of the most frequently chosen, thanks to the fact that it helps with your mage’s ability to survive, even if it dishes out a bit less damage than either Fire or Arcane spec. Hurling frostbolts that slow your opponents down, being able to freeze enemies in place, summoning a water elemental pet which is a formidable ranged combatant in its own right, and having a few “panic buttons” available (such as embedding your character in a giant ice cube using the Ice Block spell) all combine to make your character a bit harder to kill and a bit easier to level with.

Fire talent builds for WoW mage leveling spec are a bit more vulnerable than frost, since they have less ways to keep hostile creatures at a distance. Fire mages are able to deal a lot of damage, however, and have many abilities that increase their speed and mobility.

Arcane mages do slightly less damage, but are the Swiss army knife of the mage world. Their counterspells, special abilities, improved Blink spell, and so on all make them intriguing characters to level, although they are also one of the most complex characters to play in World of Warcraft.

Although not technically part of your mage’s talent specialization, the race of your character has a slight impact on how well they do while leveling also. Gnomes, for example, have a slightly larger mana pool than other characters, which can keep them in combat longer and reduce the downtime between fights. Draenei have a scaling, self-healing ability which makes them a viable leveling race, while the speed boost racial ability of Worgen increases their mobility – always an important consideration for the “run and gun” tactics of mages.

On the Horde side, racial abilities are, as ever, quite a bit more robust than the half-baked abilities given to the Alliance. Orcs and trolls are usually considered to be the best mages for leveling, since orcs gain spellpower from their Blood Fury ability, while trolls benefit both from their Beast Slaying ability while questing, and from the spell haste granted by Berserking. These differences are fairly minimal, however, and unless you are an optimization fanatic, just pick the race you like best to level as a mage.

WoW Mage Leveling – Fast Mage Leveling in Cataclysm

Mages in World of Warcraft are a very powerful class, able to strike down their foes at a distance using blasts of fire, shattering bursts of ice, or the white energy of arcane force itself. They also have many other utility powers, including the ability to blink from place to place instantly without crossing the ground in between, slow their fall so that they can survive plunging over cliffs, conjure food and drink for themselves or allies, silence enemy spellcasters to prevent them from using their powers for several critical seconds, and so on. WoW mage leveling requires a good deal of skill and knowledge, however, because mages are also fragile – armored only with cloth, feeble in melee, and with generally low health totals.

Be Ready To Power Level Your WoW Mage With Booster


Fire mages are one of the more viable leveling specs due to their high damage output, and the talents which give them speed boosts from time to time, making them elusive targets for enemy monsters. They generally fare poorly in PvP (player versus player) battlegrounds, due to their inability to slow down opposing player characters and their lack of “panic buttons” such as the Ice Barrier talent found in the Frost tree. However, for leveling, you can make use of this spec effectively if you know what to do.

The tactics for a leveling fire mage in WoW are basic “run and gun” techniques. You should open with your high-damage Pyroblast when possible, since it is a very slow spell, and you want to cast it before the target is aggressive to your character.

Pyroblast is often used for “pulling”, or starting a fight, but is less useful once battle has begun (though an immobilized opponent can sometimes be hit with a second Pyroblast, and deep fire talents sometimes cause an instant Pyroblast to proc). At level 69, you should put your last few talent points into Frost’s Piercing Ice and Arcane’s Netherwind Presence for improved crit and spell haste, respectively.

WoW mage leveling in Frost is preferred by many people, however, due to the spec’s ability to keep opponents at arm’s length more easily by slowing or freezing them outright. The frost spec does less damage than fire, so those who want dramatic numbers and swift kills should probably opt for (or at least experiment with) fire. Frost mages have a lot of survivability, however, and are able to control the fight much more effectively than their fiery or arcane brethren.

Once your frost mage reaches level 69, a full 31 talent points will have been spent in the frost tree, and the remaining talent points can be used in other trees if desired. The frost leveling spec benefits most from putting these last few points into the Arcane talent tree, speeding up spellcasting, earning reduced mana costs for spells, and so on.

Arcane is now a viable leveling spec as well, and resembles fire (high damage, lower survivability) with a large box of “tricks”, such as counterspells and Improved Blink. To level using this spec, you should try to maintain mobility and maximize your use of quick or instant spells as well.

Mage Leveling Guide For Cataclysm – WoW Mage Leveling Guide

Updated for the 4.0 patch and Cataclysm

Fire Mage seems to be the prevailing popular WoW Mage leveling build for Cataclysm. There are viable options in the Frost Spec that I will add later and the Arcane Tree seems to stay as a more viable option at higher levels.

Talents & WoW Mage Leveling Guide Options.

You get to choose your first talent point at level 10 and this means choosing a specialization. You will be either Fire, Frost or Arcane until level 69 (you must put 31 points in your primary specialization) You will then have 10 more points available to put in the other trees by level 85.

Mastery is a trainable skill that you have access to upon achieving level 80. Gear will come withMastery Rating, which will increase the Mastery effect much like Crit Rating does now. Whether stacking lots of Mastery is really worthwhile, compared to crit or anything else, remains to be seen and we won’t say much about it on this page.

You no longer learn several levels of spell. You buy the spell once and it scales as you level.

Leveling Tips

The general routine is this: Keep the opposition at maximum range wherever possible and blast away. Use Frost Nova when the mob gets too close, get some range and blast away. You will probably want to have a wand handy for those rare times when you are low on mana, and use the wand when the mob is running away from you or your partner is tanking it.

Food – Keep well stocked. Regular foods are great if you need to recover a lot of HP. Beverages keep your mana up. Your Create WaterCreate Food are free, use them. You can usually find beverages that will recover more mana than the spell in certain level ranges, so grab those when appropriate, but again… the spell is free. :)

First Aid – An essential skill, too bad there isn’t a “first aid for Mana.” Keep it maxed.

Crafting- skip the crafting professions unless you have a ton of cash. If youi want to go for it, and you don’t need to gather stuff to sell, then there are a couple of good combiniations:

  • Herbalism and Alchemy – You’ll be able to create lots of very useful potions with the stuff that you gather, this keeps your costs way down.
  • Skinning and Mining (or Herbalism) – not that you have use for the pieces, but it’s a great money making combo. Builds Stam and Crit rating, too.
  • Tailoring and Enchanting – Enchanting is very expensive to level (that’s why there are so many ‘chanters in chat offering their services with your mats.)You can use it here, though, todisenchant many of the surplus items that you make with tailoring. The mats created will sell for more than the items. Or save the mats and use them for the enchants. By the way, some clothes sell for nice prices. Check them out before junking them.

Wands – these aren’t quite as useful as with other caster classes, since they mobs will usually be running towards you, rather than away from you (fear spells,) but if your tank is holding aggro and you’re low on mana, then wands are great.

Bank alt- make a bank alt so you can mail your stuff and get back to leveling. Yes, you can ‘port to the city, but ‘porting back to your leveling area isn’t quite so easy.

Develop eyes in the back of your head, especially on PvP servers. It’s not that you can’t do damage up close, it’s that you can’t take it. See what’s coming before it surpirses you and learn to love theFrost Nova, especially when sneaky things are about.

Mage Leveling Guide – Checking Out Mage Gear

Great WoW Mage Leveling Guide about gear used for World Of Warcraft Mages.

Mage Leveling Guide – Gearing Your WoW Mage
By Steve Phipps

The WoW mage is a spell casting damage class the relies on crowd control spells and pure damage to survive,

We want to take a look at the types of gear that will help you level faster with your new toon.

At lower levels it will be important for your mage to be able to deal as much damage as possible as well as ensure you have a sufficient mana pool in order to keep leveling and reduce resting time.

You will want to look for “of the eagle” and “of the owl” type gear to increase your mana pool as well as “spell power” type gear.

As your mage levels you will want to make sure you are adding gear that increases hit rating to reduce spells that miss your target. There are also certain skills that will be different depending on the talent build you decide to use with your toon.

An arcane mage does not require much added critical strike gear as fire or frost but haste will is very important for the arcane build.

All three of the available talent builds will require you to have a large amount of spell power and this should be your primary focus as you reach middle and higher levels. You will find that you will not need to worry about mana as you reach the higher levels because any of the available gear will provide a fair amount of intellect.

As a general rule you will want to focus on spell power, hit rating, haste rating and then critical strike if you are using a frost or fire talent build.

The mage class is one that can be leveled extremely fast and using one of the good WoW leveling addon programs will be the very best mage leveling guide you can use for your toon.

One of the best mage leveling guide addons is offered by checking out:

They offer a great in game addon as well as a comprehensive series of videos for every class in World Of warcraft.

Mage Talent Builds – WoW Frost Mage Leveling Build

When it comes to Mage talent builds the frost build is designed to survive making it one of the best Mage leveling builds. I personally prefer a frost build when leveling a toon between the levels of 20 into the 70′s when Arcane picks up the power needed to use. Arcane certainly has some benefits in mana regen because you don’t have to stop and drink as much but this is not enough to use it as a low level spec. Here is one of my favorite Mage talent builds for leveling as well as high level PVE.
