Just curious. Anyone who plays Mage, What is your Average DPS on a training Dummy using only your own buffs (no flask and food buffs also)? Please post for both spec if you want.

Here's mine:
Arcane: 23k-25k+
Fire: 21k+

30k iirc. I don't really do dummy on this guy because fire's rotation is insanely easy and mage dps increases unpredictably with raid buffs, imo.

I was asked to do this the other day for the first time. A bit timid yet very curiously I went forth and beat up on the dummy unbuffed.

I sustained 18-20k arcane till I oom'd.

after a lil twinks at the reforger last night:
I sustained 20-22k arcane till I oom'd.

I guess there are firsts for everything, but there it is.

If you're OOM as arcane, you're doing it wrong.

I usually pull between 19k and 22k during Conserve and 30k during burn.

Well no, if you end a boss fight with mana you're doin it wrong.

18k dps on raid dummy , my dps can pretty much be served as benchmark for arcane.

You should really say how long on the target dummy you are doing it for...I generally go for 500 seconds.

Also if you're hitting a dummy within a few yards of another dummy. Fire and frost both benefit from this, and arcane does not.

i can start the first minute at like 21 -23 then when i level out my recount after like 3-5 minutes comes down and usually end up like 18k.. Is this about right for single target Raiddummy fire sound?? for my current gear?

Recount stops recording it as combat when you Evocate. Use a different program for determining your numbers on the target dummy. Or capture the combat and parse it on worldoflogs.com

i just reset my recount before the fight and set overall damage.
about 27-28k with 3 burn phases and 3 conserve phases, ending when my magemanabar tells me 4th burn is ready.

i then switched to fire but didnt do any reforging and did like 9k. for the whole duration until i was oom, hot streak did not proc a single time. LOL

Gear also plays a huge part in dps.

@Sethmann. What addon would record properly after evocation?

Haven't checked it closely, but it's about 18k as arcane over about 20 min

Arcane mage should never be below 25-30% mana, You should end the boss fight with burn phase but ideally you should time it so that you are ending at 25-30% mana. you could go to 0% mana but I'd like to know how much your last AB hits for if you like to go OOM on boss fights.
