Arcane Mages have three 'Phases', executed in a cycle: Burn -> Replenish -> Conserve mana.

Some parts of the Burn and Conserve Phase are shared as "Common", below.

  • Buff
  • Arcane or Dalaran Brilliance
  • Burn
  • Arcane Power
  • Prismatic Crystal
  • 2xSupernova
  • Common (below)
  • Arcane Blast spam
  • Replenish
  • Arcane Missiles if AM will expire before Evo completed
  • Evocate
  • Conserve
  • 1 or 2 Supernova if mana < 94% and < 3xAM and sure to have 2xSN for AP
  • Common
  • Arcane Blast if mana > 93%
  • Arcane Missiles if 4xAC and AM>0
  • Arcane Barrage if 4xAC
  • Arcane Blast filler
  • Common
  • Nether Tempest if 4xAC and buff expires < 3.6s
  • Arcane Orb if AC < 2
  • Presence of Mind (to buy milliseconds for Orb to hit)
  • Mirror Images
  • Arcane Missiles if 3xAM or expiring

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. Additionally, some cool downs are very specific in terms of the movement/static nature of a fight, upcoming mobs, etc and so cannot be reliably included.

The selection of what to display for Cooldowns in the mini icon rows is a personal thing. I have thrown in some ideas but you should really customise for your liking. It is very possible to show a cooldown and yet to exclude it from appearing in the main rotation icons. This would avoid you being nagged, for example, to blow a major cool down on trash and just prior to a boss fight. Enter "/wdw coo" from chat.

Notes Specific to the Arcane Mage Module
BURN commences when the Evo cooldown is below a threshold. The aim is to be down to 50% mana at exactly the time that Evo comes of CD.
Yup, impossible to predict so the module "learns" as it goes, starting at a low 15s. REPLENISH commences at 50% mana. Evo will be in queue position #1. Do it! CONSERVE occurs when Evo is on CD.

You may set the burn commencement / remaining Evo CD timer: Enter '/wdw sm burntimer=nn' in chat where 'nn' is the time.

You may set the mana threshold to trigger Evo: Enter '/wdw sm minmana=nn' in chat where 'nn' is a percentage.

You may turn on/off the "training": Enter '/wdw sm train=y' or '/wdw sm train=n'.

To check any of these enter '/wdw sm' in chat.

* 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.


  • Totally redone (again). Massively changed

    See the Module "Train"

    In chat enter '/wdw deb bt' to see a message each time the Evo timer is updated. It makes small changes each time, in the direction of the latest timing.

    To cancel enter '/wdw deb 0'. That's a zero and not an Oh :)

    Finally. After the lamentable rush effort to get a rotation done for WoD (and before I moved house with no internet for 3 weeks) I found the time to get the job done properly.

    The decision when to commence the BURN phase relies upon an internal timer, based upon the remaining time until Evo is off CD. Set to a low 15s iirc BUT it "learns" as you play. It will NEVER be the same due to the randomness of things.

    The decision to commence Evo is at 50% mana.

    YOU can set both of these manually and also cancel the auto "training" aspect too. See notes above.

    Still no update on the BurnOrCons-Missing Issue?

  • #47

    Total rewrite imminent. At final testing "phase".

    Arcane Mage, to play well, is quite complicated now. Putting the three different phases (Burn/Replenish/Conserve) accurately into a turn key addon is taking a bit but it is looking real good atm.

  • #50

    Deliberately strict requirement of 4x Arcane Charge.

    Edited out the verbose crap. See v2.02. Enjoy

    Hi! I use this addon since MoP and very happy to update for WoD. Install the latest version of addon and module exactly according to instructions, but I get the exact same error: “WeDon`tWipe: The programming code for queue label ‘BurnOrCons’ is missing from module ‘Taraezor@Frostmourne MageArcane’”. This is a bug, or I'm doing something wrong? Sorry for bad English, Google translation =)

  • #43

    I have the same problem.

  • #44

    I am on to it. Wrong file got uploaded. Thanks

    Arcane Mage - Updated!

    New module for Warlords of Draenor. Frost Mage has also had an update.

  • #40

    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.
