    Default Mage Leveling Specs and Strategies

    Hello Everyone,

    I want to level up my Mage alt a bit. Never played a Mage before, so I need major tips.

    Does this still apply? http://bluedots.org/old/2011/04/30/mage-leveling-specs/ Or is it out of date? And if so, what's my best leveling path?

    Still pretty relevant. But don't bother getting/using LBV or synthesis while leveling. I just did Necro/Lock all the way to 50, elementalist builds are also pretty hardy once you get the pet heal for your earth pet.

    necro/lock should be good leveling.. feign death & scout pet excellent for quests. soul purge key ability.
    chloro/lock worth trying. get the aoe radiant spores and devouring shadow packs of mobs.
    chloro/pyro everyone loves fire
    dom pyro/chloro worth starting to learn but probably not very good leveling except in pvp

    remember you need like a bazillion plat once you hit 50

    Necrolock works well.

    I leveled with pyro/chloro (20 in chloro before finishing out pyro) and still solo with it. The dps is good and you have a several ways to heal yourself (and others).

    Full elementalist is nice too, your pet can tank rift elites easily. But the spec has weak and/or annoying aoe.

    Stormcaller is actually not bad, put 5/5 in hypothermia talent and things are too slow to get to you. It's awesome for dungeons too.

    Besides the obvious, why?
