What do you daily as?

Mage
I daily as frost 99% of the time because the pet just makes things so much easier. Is there anyone who dailies as fire or arcane?
Frost is miles ahead for dailies.
I do it as fire, just because mobs die so fast it doesn't really matter.
I play fire for dailies.

...And dungeons.

...And raids.

...And challenge modes.

If there's a way to avoid playing frost, I've probably found it.
Definitely frost, usually with Nether Tempest and Ice Barrier.

Run through a quest area and snag every mob you see with Nether Tempest. Get them into a big group of at least 10+. By the time they get close they should be half dead from nether Tempest. Drop pet nova and frozen orb then spam ice lance till everything is dead. Repeat.

@Aeonious - wow awesome gear! I'd probably play fire too if my gear was like yours and I had nearly 15k crit rating and over 7k haste rating.

Arcane's Frost Bomb damage with Mastery is pretty OP but not worth wasting gold on reforges or anything
I do everything as fire. I also play my mage like it's a melee. It works out. Idk

Actually I just went back Arcane for dailies and its much more fun. When you have AP and procs and your Thunder Isle Buff up, Frost Bomb still crits for over 500k with no Mastery, plus glyphed AE and CoC are useful. If you find yourself taking too much damage, glyph Evo with IW and take Ice Barrier. Can even use Frost Armor too for the slow that Frost had.
I cant stand questing as frost. It feels too slow.... either im waiting on nova's + freeze cds or im hardcasting loooooooong frostbolts for too little damage.

also i hate that water elemental can aggro things behind me..

Autoattack damage is extra damage! FTW. :D Also do this when I'm being lazy lol
Frost.

Go frost bomb.

Glyph CoC.

Round up 5 billion mobs.

Ring

Bomb

CoC

Orb

Etc etc.

Basically just mow down everything.
Like others have said....

I do dailies as fire,
randoms as fire
raids as fire

Born a fire mage, will die a fire mage.
I guess it comes down to whether you want to die with your chosen spec or just play something more efficient..
I do them as fire. Incanter's Ward with Frostfire Bolt, Deep Freeze and Cone of Cold glyph'd works very well.
I have done them in all specs. I just can't do them anymore.

Spec doesn't matter, unless you are on a PvP server. You just kill things differently.

Spec Ice Ward and you will have as many novas as you'll ever want. I use it in Frost just for extra chance to shatter Frost Bomb.
