I raid on a warrior and my only other 85 is another warrior (for PVP), so I'm not an experienced caster, but I'm loving levelling a fire mage. I got to level 10 and looked at what came with each spec and just couldn't say no to pyroblast.What is it about fire that makes you say it's difficult for levelling? Pulling with a pyro and chasing it with a fireball seems to be enough to kill most level-appropriate enemies. I usually have a scorch casting off the end of the fireball just in case, and if the scorch doesn't work I throw a fireblast. If streak's up when I'm pulling I'll pull with fireball and chase it with the instant pyro and then fireball-scorch-blast as usual. If I'm fighting something huge that won't die before it reaches me, I'll hit Cone of Cold as it gets close, then run away (using strafe to keep them "in front") and spam scorches and any instant-casts I have available. It's all pretty cruisy and the pyroblasts are awesome.Hmm, maybe it's hard if you're in the regular gear that you'd earn from questing. I'm all heirloomed up with the big +int staff enchant and all that. Also, now that I think about it, most casters I've grouped with (guildies included) can't cope with strafing to keep enemies in front while kiting so maybe running right while scorching left is one of those advanced concepts that make it non-noob-friendly. As a tank, you have to master that trick because turning your back makes you die, so that's all second nature to me by now.
