Fire.

Very limited CC.
Can kite melee for 20-30 seconds.
Low burst.
Look cooler.

The sad part is there are probably people out there who do this...I've not done "worst toon on the armory" searching in a while, but they have to be out there.

Have any of you that answered actually played a mage? Before cat it was an easy choice on what spec for a mage but now ..not so sure. I have bounced back and forth a bit between frost and fire and read a lot of forums and articles and still am not sure which is better in PVE or PVP. At this point I am almost sold on Frost. Frost is #1 in single mob fights by quite a bit, but doesn't seem very efficient when it comes to AOE in handling mana. I spend a lot of time drinking potions and whatnot, too much time it seems to me.
Fire seems to be more versatile, and better in AOE than Frost. Fire just doesn't seem to have the strength or stamina that frost has. And I am not speaking of numbers, just the stay alive strength and stamina. What do you really think and why? My guildies are rather split down the middle and may be that way here but you may have different reasons that will be convincing.

There's no debate. Each spec has a niche (fire having a very small one - I only use it in battle of gilneas rated battle grounds) and each spec is so profoundly different that you can conclusively say which spec is better in every conceivable scenario. Unless you are constantly involved in large team fights (> 5v5), frost is miles ahead of fire. In fact, it's so far ahead that I question whether this thread is serious.

The real debate: frost mages who are using Moonwell Chalice, do you prefer it to the spell power on use PvP trinket? I just bought my chalice today and I'm pretty disappointed with the numbers that I'm getting.

Sounds like you are a big noob. Stay a noob and play your faceroll class as a paladin.

Really you should have made a troll because here you are trolling another persons forum. You make this laughable as a faceroller yourself!

LOL fool Emil is no more. This is a main and you should really stop trolling the forums. I started this post as a gitimate question since it was a trade topic the day I started it. You need to get a life and gtfo this forum and let real mage players have their say. Go troll somewhere else.
