    Default Fire mage in need of some advice

    Hey guys I have been tryin out playing with fire the last few days and so far in instances I have noticed that I am dropping mana like a madman. I am currently looking for a fire spec that would produce high damage for a raiding mage, and want to see if anyone had any suggestions on solid fire builds that work. To me there seems to be alot of souls with some good options but dropping to the best 2 subspecs to boost up my flame throwing anarchy is a bit of a problem thanks in advance for the help guys.

    have you tried using smoldering powder ? in the fire tree spec.
    other then that I tend to burn through mana extremely quickly.

    ^^what he said

    Remember, smoldering power turns your charge in to reserve mana. That reserve will be used before your mana. Before I drop any AoEs I usually make sure charge is up, pop smoldering power, then drop the AoE. Just remember... Have full charge? Pop smoldering power. Twice the mana.

    If you are having mana problems, I would highly suggest you putting at least 6 points into the Warlock tree so that you get Sacrifice Life: Mana. You will be getting healed in groups, so it's free mana.

    or just buy lots of drinks

    In Archon you sec for crits to give % of your mana (up to 4.5% I think)

    getting nearly 1/20th of yourmana back every crit is pretty cool.

    As for the other bit, smoldering power is your friend.
