Hello everyone, I know that arcane mages are not that popular, but if you got some friends that are stubborn and would not like to try other specs, here is a lazy macro for them. Basically it consists of a spammable spell, with a rotation in cooldowns and a modifier when decide to do
Arcane Barrage Arcane Missiles.
Macro might be outdated, please check the forums for up to date macros.
/castsequence [mod]Arcane Missiles;Arcane Blast /castsequence reset=120 Mana Gem,Presence of Mind,Arcane Power /castsequence reset=180 Mirror Image,Flame Orb,Flame Orb,Flame Orb /use 13 /use 14
Do not forget to use focus magic and mage armor!
UPDATED June 7, 2011: Revised and removed Arcane barrage spell from the modifier, Arcane Missiles are now the current modifier.
UPDATED July 22, 2011: Changed orbs and images in their own sequence for faster response.
UPDATED August 5, 2011: Added Mana Gem to the second castsequence and rearranged the order for more burst.
