Jul 16th 2011 4:29PM while i can't speak for arcane mages over lvl 60 (since i have a mage of that lvl) the two button myth for arcane is completely correct to that lvl. to top dps is a five man all you need is arcane blast and whatever else you want ot press at four stacks.
AOE doesn't even need to be considered. You will top the group without looking at it.
And as far as beyond lvl 60 goes, I confess i'm ignorant of what part mastery plays in all this but at least to grouping up to lvl 84 with mages it's hard to argue with recount shoing them having used only two spells an entire dungeon run (with blast being up to 96% percent of their dmg) and they top the group.
I love my mage so far but I can still see this. Those other spells we have are nice, some wonderful, but none needed for dmg.
Jun 16th 2010 2:29PM I was wondering if anymore knew of a mod that would allow me to just have a portrait up of my character and of my target (even if that meant scaling back it's other features which is fine). i really love icehud since i started playing around with it a few months ago but i do miss seeing my target's portrait (really don't care about my own).
Dec 5th 2009 6:33PM Pre lvl 40 instances do not require much. even a low lvl palladin can tank easily if they are prot or ret (gimped out on dmg with a shield but it's doable-not past 40 though as ret). i've done it. it's the same with healing if you have enough mana and healing spells the early dungeons just require you to hit those healing buttons and know what your doing.
