PvPing as fire is doable, but def. not advised. It's a bit like pitting a howizter vrs. calvary: you can hit them hard from afar, but when they get up close you're pretty defenseless. It's for this reason that most mages spec arcane or frost for the increased survivability. Arcane is great for killing enemy casters due to increased magic resistance and improved counter spell while Frost is great vrs. enemy melee due to its slowing and incapacitating effects. If you're just getting in to pvp I highly recommend Arcane with points into Arcane sheilding and Incanter's absorption. Here's an example of a basice arcane pvp spec: http://www.wowarmory.com/talent-calc.xml?cid=8&tal=23002503002203015032313251530103000000000000000000000000002030230010000000000000000000You'll see a few variation's of this as player's will tweak it to fit their own personal play style. For PvPing, always gear for haste especially in Arena as crit has a diminished effect on resillience maxed opponents. Hope this helps a bit :).

That's very helpful, especially since I didn't know it was possible to PvP effectively as arcane. Thanks for the advice!
