I am not sure if we have a mage accomplishments thread (similiar to one I saw in rogue forums and thought it was a good idea) I did look plow through some pages but didnt see anything so I will start by saying last night I dinged 30 and got my mount (with my own hard earned gold through herbalism and AH) and am now questing faster than ever to 40!!! I know it used to be like 100 gold and lvl 40 for you veterans but still....I am pretty happy I got a mount!!! I have gotten this far partly thanks to Anobix and Poldaran and and others who have posted faqs and hints and tips and strategies.....Hopefully I can get as skilled and maybe help others on the forums that helped me! So lets get the achievements coming from succesful mages whether it be items, gear, raid, arena, BG, or whatever made you feel good while playing your mage....

Well beyond getting all the mounts up to 70 (including my epic flier -- netherwing drake and the netherray). I am still working on getting the bear mount (hopefully in the next week or so once we get some more runs in, we have had 4 drop so far, just simple rolls to see who gets it). I would love to get the Pheonix mount (I believe one person on my server has it) but good luck getting a Kael'thas run...

Downed Illidan for the first time last week, Archimonde a couple of months ago. Working on getting Illidan down again tonight (had enough time for 5 wipes last night...) so yeah.

Currently running my 4pc T6 with shoulders, gloves, legs, head piece. Only real <significant> upgrades for me [pre-sunwell] is the hex lord trinket, illidan's trinket, and the staff off of Illidan (or Tempest of Chaos).

I've had my epic flyer for about 10 months now (best investment ever imho), got my sweet, sweet bear mount a few weeks ago.

We got Kalecgos down for the first time about a month ago, that was an AWESOME feeling. That fight is such a pain to get the hang of (was for us at least).

Wearing 6 pieces of T6. Kind of a waste, but I never got the other drops to swap in to get back to just the 4pc bonus.

Like Anobix, I'm waiting for the staff and the trinket from Illidan. We've stopped doing Hyjal and the **** Tempest only ever dropped for us twice (curse our DKP-hoarding warlocks).

I'm restarting my Horde mage in Arenas... sounds kind of hollow after the "I've got every mount known to man/I'm in BT pwning bosses", but hey... he's semi-retired. I guess I need to level my Alliance mage.

I'm with yas six string, those are really hard acts to follow, but here goes. I have finally replaced all but my cloak and one ring, and one trinket with t4 epics. I got the t5 shoulders the other night. I've found an awesome raiding guild and been running SSC, TK, and mount hyjal every week. Got the staff of infinite mysteries last week, and boots of blasphemy last night.

I have only ever played this mage in wow. No alts. They would have to nerf mages to the point of being sheeps ourselves before I stop playing one.

Had never stepped foot into a t5 dungeon until I transferred to a very low pop server in January 08 with 11 friends. We joined a guild that was also just starting t5. Was spellfire/kara geared at the time. Now I am officer of top guild (same one we started ssc with in January)on server with 5pc t5 (wearing 4 and using Sunfire handwraps as offpiece and have channelled elements in bank for when i get bracer to keep 4 pc). Have over 30 bears in guild and killed Kalecgos last 2 weeks. Also skull of guldan last week to go with hex shrunken head and serpent coil braid. Still waiting on staff or toc, only one toc drop so far and no staffs. When i hit cap for raid with haste set (w/ elemental shaman) 126 hit, 176 haste, 1277dmg, 31%fire crit
(these stats are self buffed with ai/molten armor only). Feel I came a long way in 6 months.

I couldnt agree with you more Vytorius, only 70 i've leveled and I love it to much to change.

Topped the damage meters on Supremus (and he did follow me a few times), was also the same night my guild went to 3/6 BT.

Unfortunately for my mage her achievements are mainly raiding related, rep and rare drops get covered by my alts.

I got my mage to 50 last night and is in the process of doing the mage quest going with it.

I actually have Hood of Hexing! on my mage now! Can i hear a w00t? Had to roll against a rl friend of mine... that kinda sucked tho.

Due to gearing my warrior up for arena (which I havent found a 2vs2 for yet) i've spend all of my badges on the nethers i needed for that bs mace. So now im looking to upgrade my spellstrike legs via an other route.

Grats Anobix! We killed Illidan last night too, he had the audacity to drop a main-hand warglaive instead of the staff, dirty ******.

GRATS ANOBIX, still no zhardoom at all for us, or glaive. Have had one shield and one skull and one cursed vision of sargeras so far though.

Would love to raid with my mage, but could never seem to match my schedule up with my guild's...then they broke apart (having never moved past kara)...

Biggest accomplishment for me by far is my S3 Arena title. Just Challenger, but **** it, you don't see many mages with Challenger in 2v2, so I'm a happy wannabe Gladiator.

edit: rate up for everybody here. Fun thread. I like having our own twist on Weekend Goals.

All that awesome gear and a fathom stone? Grab a fetish of the primal god's... for god's sake! Or at least try for a Chronicle. Grats on the sunfire handwraps though!

Oh, and I saw you were 41/0/20 (interesting spec) most would have gone 40/0/21 (assuming you are arcane blast spec) but either way if you are casting frostbolts you will want to be up at 126 spell hit, not 85!.

Nice Gul'dan!

Lmao bad armory time, i was messing around in a heroic shattered, went arcane missle, arcane explosion, and improved blizzard, changed back after the run. I use the fetish, and run 2/48/11 99% of time except for illidan/council. But aoe run of heroic shattered made it worth going aoe spec.

Even in my raid fire gear you will see me cap at 126-131 hit usually, 3 elemental shamans full time raid with us =)

Reason for the other gear in the instance i just stacked a bunch of crit for AE and was playing with different trinkets in arcane spec, usually run skull of guldan + hex shrunken head or serpent coil.

Speaking of this im having a **** of a time deciding on second trinket, when i need hit in the rare times i dont get ele shammy i of course go scb, but rest of time??? the hex head rated higher dps, but i dont think any of the spreadsheets take into consideration the effect of proccing the +spell dmg from scb while the skull is procced for the haste.
This with a bloodlust ive reached 1.2 second fireballs and wondering if the spell dmg stacked then wouldnt outweigh proccing the hex head separate. Havent had enough raids to try both since getting skull but its something to play with.

All the TC that I have read state that Gul'dan + Shrunken Head = best combo. Although DM: Crusade is definitely up there as well. When you need hit, as stated, scb is the way to go (or in a mana intensive fight - I use it on Kaz'rogal for both reasons).

Yay!! today after many attempts poly turtle dropped for me, then got cloak of the illidari council. =)

Also first night of attempts on Brutallus, only a few tries and only 64% best but working out the threat issues and getting healing straightened out. DPS seems like its going to be fine, running about 24-26k raid dps without drum rotations or full dps consumables. Should be ok when we add the bloodlusts, destro pots, etc. I am dropping blast wave,dragons breath, and pyro for the fight to get one point to clearcast while keeping icy veins, and considering dropping inceneration to get 2 more points into clearcast. Love the fight so far though.

Nice, good luck in there, adding the consumables should definitely get you guys to the 27k mark needed for it.

Awesome, glad to see a couple of our mages have some Sunwell experience, we are hoping to be out of MH and into Sunwell within a month after a few more Illidan kills.

Hi Troldeerind, thanks for the help=). The question a few posts ago is about the trinket combos, because I believe all of the spreadsheets just figure the dps of the trinkets for the procs as damage x (proc uptime/length of cooldown) or something to that affect. In this case the hex head is going to shine over the scb. But have you tried at all the scb being procced during the skull proc and would this put the scb on equal or better dps than using the hex head and skull and rotating procs. I know what the tc spreadsheets are going to say but i dont think they use a formula that puts the added haste being available during simultaneous use with only one of the two trinkets. Also if you dont mind what kind of dps are you running on brutallus before the molten fury. We havent gotten into molten fury yet but is 1700-1800 pre 20% going to throw me well into the 2000s once we get into that awesome 2million molten fury and start using the destros and bloodlusts?

Thanks.
