I really want to get a server first achievement. I'm looking for server first Mage myself. Over the next few days I will explain about what I have in mind for how I am going to get this achievement.
Today I am looking at 80-85 speed leveling specs. Out of all three specs, Frost and Arcane look the best. I choose not to go fire because even though it looks aoe friendly, Blizz has stated that aoe in general is not the direction they wanted to take.
I am thinking about Frost as a leveling spec just because it's the traditional leveling spec pre 4.0.1. That, and with the ranged frost nova from the Water Elemental, and the Frostbolt Chill Cleave, it might help when I aggro more mobs than I can currently handle.
I am also thinking about Arcane because of talents, Arcane Blast can be talented to also put Slow on my current target. That, and with the high damage that Arcane Blast can pump out, I can imagine I can just shred through mobs. Improved Polymorph is going to be helpful for that needed stun.
Overall I can see myself going both ways, and with just a week left before Cataclysm, I need to get my shit together and find out what I am going to do!
Let me know what you guys think!
