I would just like to add that I have been having fun AoE grinding. I don't just do AoE grinding without quests, because that makes no sense now that quest exp. is better than grinding, but do it when you need to kill 60 mobs in order to get things to drop. Also, it is a very good build when you are in an overly populated setting (just got through Duskwood, yuck... Every single mob camp had at least one other person working on it.) AoEing is good because you can round up three or more mobs at once, while everyone else is only going after one.One last thing: Go to the underpopulated areas (Desolace, badlands, anywhere with Night Elves). Seriously. I was in Desolace the other day and killed three rare mobs in one hour because no one had been their since they respawned.Could you please go over leveling builds? Is it possible to level Fire?

I was 100% fire until I hit 40, and could have easily kept using it past there. Just at lvl40 the frost tree really opens up and makes AoE Frost grinding way easier as more good talents get unlocked at that point. Seriously, unless you're packing tons of +frost damage gear, trying to AoE frost grind before lvl40 is foolhardy in this Mage's opinion. Mages, SHADOW FANG KEEP IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST FOR YOU!! Arugal's Robe and belt are, up until SM the BEST Robes and Belt you can get. Run it till you get both!! The +damage stats on these items are AWESOME for their level, Many of the other drops in SFK are also very nice for mages.I said this in the last column, I'll say it again, 1-40 run fire, and stack all the +fire damage and +damage gear you can find. No other stats matter as much as +dam at low levels, not stam, not int, none of it matters. When you're adding close to 500 damage to your base... well you get the idea. And on Frost ; the +frost damage stuff is out there, a little rarer, and doesn't quite seem to offer nearly as much +stats to your frost damage as equivalent +fire dam gear. Which is why waiting toll around 40 to turn frost is wiser as talents make up for the lower over all damage output.
