World of Warcraft is bringing the first of two Dragonflight pre-patches this week, and today we get the expansion's various mechanical changes like the new talent system and the loss of the Shadowlands tier set bonuses.
In a game where you're tethered to the ground for travel, and a majority of that on foot, Mage portals add a bit of convenience.
This week we take a look at what Mages can expect from patch 6.2 including tier set bonuses, class changes and more.
Mages have many options only available to us when it comes to plodding along on the ground. We’ll start off with transportation aids that aren’t class specific and then move on to the good, Mage only stuff.
Whether you’ve been playing a mage for a week or for years, there are usually things we can all do more efficiently to maximize our damage. There’s a big difference between theorycraft and practical damage. Many factors affect damage dealing execution: lag, reaction time, environmental hazards, RNG, and of course player error. Your damage is also dependent on your gear, spec and talent choice, but that’s not what we’re looking at this week. Instead, we’re considering ways that will allow any spec of mage to see an improvement in their damage immediately.
Welcome to the first edition of the Blizzard Watch mage column: Arcane Sanctum. This week, we break in a brand new mage tower and discuss the upcoming changes in patch 6.1.
