I raid as Frost.Yes you heard taht right, I Raid As Frost.No other spec I could imagin raiding as, Fire and Frostfire depend too much on crits to ever be reliable imho, ive seen too many firebal/ffb mages dealing 2500 one fight and then over 3500 annother fight, its just too random to work. And arcane is the fast-mana burning-over cooldown oriented spec that just never seems to work in the raids ive been in, more often than not our boomkin uses her innerverate on our arcane mage because his Evocation got messed up.When my mage started lvling in northerend I scoured loot tables for ANYTHING with a decent ammount of haste and I got those items, and to this day, doing heroics and raiding, I still ONLY roll on haste items, I almost never get crit rating, ive got a whopping 19% crit rating with molten armor up and the Glyph for it. I am only boasting about 1300 SP, but ive got a 2 sec cast frostbolt and I hit 6500+ crits Very often, ive even been known to deal over 8k with a crit.I joined a guild that is just now starting on 10 man naxx, and since ive been there b4, and have some fairly decent gear compared to the rest, I got my raid slot, and I get my pick of Whatever gear upgrades I want/need. The trick with raiding as frost is experience, and knowing a trick or two doesnt hurt(psst! get TTW in the arcane tree, you WILL love it, and NEVER get Glyph of Frostbolt). Other than that, stick to knowing your spec, know the ins and outs of each talent, and with frost its fairly simple, spam frostbolt, and you cant go wrong with that =). If you still have a major glyph slot open when you hit 80, consider Glyph of Fireball if you got the Brainfreeze talent, its a ok DPS boost
