Getting back into raiding 5.2 need quick tips

Mage
Hey all.

After having gone casual after Dragon Soul, I have just been using LFR since Pandaria launch, and now want to raid seriously again. I don't mind starting out in NMs before going to HMs, so I just need some quick answers.

What spec is best for PvE atm? It seems Arcane or Frost is?
What would be the main stat after Int to go after when picking drops?
Any glyph preference?
Quick basic rotation?

Thanks very much.
Honestly after hearing what Blatty from Method said the other day, I don't even know anymore. I was going to say Arcane would probably be all right for low gear levels, even though it has terrible mechanics across every avenue important for raiding. But he really tore the new Arcane a new one, so it might be worse than even I was predicting. We'll see.

My guess is Frost until like ilvl 515-520 then Fire. As for stat priorities, talents and glyphing go to icy-veins.com and use their mage guides to get you started. Don't use it for the Arcane rotation though because tomorrow everything is changing for Arcane.
I don't care about that. I found a guild that will use my main (Mage), so I just want to be the best I can be for them. This is a NM guild and is not going for world firsts.

I refer you to my second paragraph.
Alright I will check out that site.

Ah yes, another of the sickly sarcastic of the WoW community. Thanks for your vile response, I don't even know why I came back, might as well insta unsub.

Gosh I miss Vanilla when barely anyone was a douche.
