Welcome to the Arcane Mage DPS guide written by Philwestside.
Arcane's strengths are incredible bursts of single target damage during a short amount of time.
They are also blessed with Displacement and Greater Invisibility on top of Ice Block which can sometimes help you ignore or relief your raid of mechanics in raids.
What has changed
In 8.1 the Anomalous Impact Azerite Trait was replaced with Equipoise.
Brain Storm was buffed to also give 2 Arcane Charges when you cast Evocation.
Before the opening of Battle of Dazar’alor Equipoise damage was 200% and Arcane Pummeling damage was increased by 30%.
