About We Don't Wipe - Arcane Mage

A DPS maximiser. Displays a sequence of icons from left to right, representing the order in which you should use your abilities so that maximum DPS may be achieved. You 'plug in' modules for your class/specialisation into a single AddOn, ensuring a consistent and familiar interface across the range of your characters.

This file is a module for the We Don't Wipe AddOn. Included with this download is the very simple procedure for adding this module to We Don't Wipe. No file editing for v3.01 of WDW!!!

See We Don't Wipe to download and for full information.

Rotation ('Single')

  • Mage Armor
  • Arcane or Dalaran Brilliance
  • Tier 6 talent of choice
  • Tier 5 (Bomb) of choice (refresh)
  • Arcane Power if 2 x AM buff and 4 x AC debuffs are up
  • 1 or 2 Arcane Missiles with 4 x AC debuff and AM buff
  • Arcane Barrage with 4 x AC debuff and no AM buff
  • Fillers: Arcane Blast, or other suggestions

General Rotation Notes
Sometimes, if you are unable to follow the rotation closely, certain abilities will just not be suggested in the queue. This is probably because preconditions to establish optimal use of the ability were not met.

(It is possible to exclude abilities from a rotation, and yet still display their CD/availability.)

Notes Specific to the Arcane Mage Module
The module is very good at calculating when to use Alter Time.

The module ships with a few rotations. A rotation called 'Single' differs from the 'Levelling' rotation due to including the Bomb talents and Mana Gem logic. A rotation called 'Alternative' is more in tune with the early days of the Cataclysm expansion but it might work for some players. I regard it as rather inferior to 'Single'.

* Alter Time *
The rotation called 'Alter Time' is basically 'Single' with AT logic added. It waits for the right time to cast AT, in terms of optimising your personal DPS. In order to fit in with the wishes of your raid leader it should be noted that AT does not have to be cast immediately it appears with WDW so you can safely cast Arcane Blast for a short while yet.

* Brilliance Buff *
Dalaran Brilliance / Arcane Brilliance bring a +10% Spell Power buff and +5% Crit buff to groups. This is better than a Shaman's Burning Wrath buff and does NOT overwrite the +10% Stamina of a Warlock's Dark Intent. If a BM Hunter is present then it shouldn't be choosing a pet to give the Still Water buff. Similar logic with respect to Crit buffs such as LotWT, LotP, FH, etc. Thus: Always cast AB/DB if it is not present (on yourself - to save checking everyone).

I encourage others to suggest their own ideas, perhaps even upload your own module if you have some LUA skills. I am happy to assist.


  • Version number update for Patch 6.0.3


  • Removed old 'party' rotation due to errors
  • Fixed programming error in the 'Levelling' rotation
  • Added a conventional 'Single' target rotation
  • Added an 'Alternative' single target rotation (inferior)
  • Added Mana Gem code to all rotations. Should never really be needed
  • Version number update for Patch 5.4

    nice addon :) but can you make another version for cataclysm?

  • #39

    I have the addon We don't Wipe installed and downloaded this addon. Unzipped it into the Module of WDW, but ingame I get the message in chat 'No usable Modules found for your class/specialisation'.Though in the WDW toc file I can see that MageArcane is mentionned, but ingame there is no module and it doesn't work.

    Did I miss something or what did I wrong to get this addon working ?



    Edit : I figured it out and found the solution. It is working now and it is a great app !

    Thanks !

    I have a question when it comes to using Single vs Altered Time or Leveling. When I use the addon it always goes to Altered Time. How do I use Single or Leveling when needed/want. I read the whole post or at least what I can see, and have not seen anything addressing this. Is it another module I put in? Please point me in the right direction. Thank you,



    I figured it out. Just had to read the help menu a little more. 


    Thank you, 

    great app now to experiment!

    At this stage we await whatever Blizzard throws at us for the next expansion. Hopefully nothing too radical.

  • #28

    is there a way to move this out of the center of my screen ?

  • #29

    (1) Target something attackable, like a Critter in SW or Org, or perhaps a target dummy. anything that cuases the queue to show.

    (2) Hover the mouse over the centre of the first/main/largest icon.

    (3) Hold your left mouse button down and drag.

    (4) Done!

    (To avoid accidentally doing this you can tick (Brit/NZ/Aus Eng.) / check (USA Eng.) the "Lock" option in the Options Panel of WDW)
