P.P.S.: To give you a general idea for non-german-speakers:- you are a burst class - damage is more important than survivability - if you are starting out a few epic pieces of naxx10/25 loot are better than the blue pvp set- haste is king! try to get like 500- get 2 piece t7 - legs and shoulders. those 2 have haste and you get to profit from the set bonus- get the wintergrasp pvp trinket with haste instead of the normal one with resilience- socket haste/spellpower/spell penetration- get the wintergrasp haste belt + maybe chest if you cant get furious- if you have access to furious gear and not uluduar hard mode gear get 4 or 5 piece furious

This isn't the last and only PvP column I'll ever post here, guys. There'll be more. Maybe even next week. Who knows?This particular column was intended as a broad and basic guide for Mages who are dipping their feet into end-game PvP, a resource for them to know which items they can start working for right away to help them bridge the gear gap. It wasn't meant to be a treatise on stats, or a strategy guide, or a guide to team comps, or anything else. It is what it is, and I hope somebody out there benefits from it.Having said that, stay tuned. There's an Arcane Brilliance every Saturday, and there are a million topics out there for it to cover. Have a little patience. At some point, I might even write something you'll approve of.

Hasha. Thanks for this post. I don't think the OP was bad; it just wasn't what I expected. I was expecting more along the line of what you submitted. It would also have been nice to have had a discussion as to what the best PvP spec for mages is. I'm frost for leveling, for example, but is that best for PvP?
