In this article, we present you with the best gems and enchants that you can get for a Fire Mage in WoW 4.3, including profession-specific perks. We also list the best consumables: food, flasks, and potions.
Make sure to check our Gear Optimisation Guide, which serves as a support guide for this article. The other articles of our Fire Mage guide can be accessed from the table of content on the left.
Note that Extra Enchantments can be applied to an item in addition to a Main Enchantment.
You should always be eating food that provides 90 intellect, whether this is in the form of:
Your flask should be a Flask of the Draconic Mind.
During the encounter, your best choice for a potion will be Volcanic Potion.
Fire mages should also make use of Flame Cap as often as possible. This consumable (farmed in Outland with Herbalism) does not share cooldowns with anything that a Fire Mage uses in combat. In particular, it does not share a cooldown with Mana Gem, as is often mistakenly reported.
4. Summing-up Profession Perks↑top
Choosing a profession for your Fire Mage can impact your raid performance. As a rule, you should shy away from gathering professions (with the exception of Herbalism), which leaves the following viable professions for raiding:
With the exception of Tailoring, which is currently the best profession for casters, you will generally prefer a passive Intellect bonus over any of the temporary gains. Indeed, Lifeblood provides Haste Rating, which, as a Fire Mage, is much less valuable than any Intellect bonus. Synapse Springs is good, but if you already have an on-use trinket, the two effects cannot be used simultaneously and you will prefer that of your trinket, which is, most likely, a lot more powerful than that of Synapse Springs.
