My Mage rocked Naxx25

August 24, 2009

Finally everything worked out as I planned for a very long time. After the Naxx25 run yesterday I am featuring an average iLvL of 211. That the right direction, and I can still improve with the token as soon as I have collect more of them.

The group building went really slow yesterday. I think we started at 6pm, at least I was invited at that time, we have been 8-9 chars. Great, so it was clear to me that it would take time. But damn, not that much time. We had to invite for nearly 2hours. This was really tough. But finally we had a real good group setup with anything a mage would love. There was the druid caster, the Caster Shaman with their great totems, 4 Paladins for all needs, another mage with the magic focus talent.

The moment, I remembered that I have to use Molten Armor instead of Magic Armor everything went really smooth. I constantly put out 4K DPS on trash and bosses. I am not yet sure if I really have to have 289hit for the cap, since the caster druid should also reduce the hit cap, but since I had no better trinket to support the test I left it as it was given.

I took care that I hid my Arcane Missile the moment the speed up proc. I used every cool down like Mirror Images as early as possible in a boss fight in the hope to have it available again before the fight would end. The second Icy Vain usually was great to increase the speed of the Evoke to have full mana again. I took care to have Mana Gems available, but where only occasionally in a real need to use them. I really think the tailoring stuff for the cloak helped there a lot. A 400 Mana proc from time to time is great.

I was able to win a staff with 99 haste on it. I am sure that this is really a big improvement for me.

The only cons where:
• I had to leave at 11pm we just started the last wing, the spider wing.

It was good to run Naxx25 again with some player who had good knowledge about the instance. Great that I was able to be within the top 5 damage dealers.

Next steps:
Whenever possible hit Ulduar25 for next gear Updates.
Hope for 3.2.2 to even improve arcane tree. 4 stacks of Arcane Blast sounds good to me.
