Patch 7.3 Arcane Mage PvE Rotation / Macro / Keybinds

If you really want to dominate in both PvP and PvE as an Arcane Mage you should really have a look at Impulse. This addon really transformed my game for all my toons and all players who use them certainly have a huge advantage over others as they really push your DPS to the max.

The Arcane Mage DPS rotation relies on cycling between conservation phase to save Mana and the burn phase.

Burn Phase:

The burn phase starts at the beginning of an encounter and when Evocation and Arcane Power is ready, and you have 4 Arcane Charge.

  • Rune of Power
  • Arcane Power
  • Arcane Missiles
  • Arcane Blast
  • Evocation

Conservation Phase:

  • Mark of Aluneth
  • Rune of Power (2 charges)
  • Arcane Orb
  • Nether Tempest (4 Arcane Charge)
  • Arcane Missiles.
  • Supernova
  • Arcane Barrage (Under 70% Mana)
  • Arcane Blast


Use Arcane Blast instead of Arcane Explosion
