mage buildsPlaying a mage is no easy task, but it becomes infinitely easier with the correct mage builds. The right mage builds talent can be tricky. You need to ask yourself what your main goals with the mage talent build are…Are you going to be doing more PvP or PvE? Are you still leveling? Do you want a hybrid spec?

Answering these simple questions can help you determine the type of mage build you want, be it a mage leveling build, mage pvp build, or mage pve build. It’s important to stick with 1 or 2 primary goals in mind first. Your mage talent build cannot be the master of all, so you’ll want to focus on the most important goals you have. This way you’ll end up with a superior mage talent build.
