  1. When I use "/script SpellStopCasting()", I get "A macro script has been blocked from an action only available to the Blizzard UI." message.
    Can you help me with this?

  2. Definitely the best guides man. Honestly too in depth for me, but the beauty of being too in depth is that it catches the noobs like me! I learned a lot in general about classic from your guides.

  3. im only level 7 and mage has been fun, but watching this guide is confusing me so bad. being a new player to WoW and only leveling a rogue i dont know if i should aoe grind or shouldnt and which talent build would be the best.

  4. why is the wands from the mage wand quest that you can pick up at lvl 30 not in here? yet the blackbone wand is in here which you need lvl 41 for and it does less damage than the wands from the mage wand quest. even if you dont manage to get it at lvl 30 you can solo the quest a few levels later and u will have it like 5 lvls before you can buy the blackbone wand and it does more damage. im not complaining and im sorry if i missed something, i was just wondering.

  5. I know it's nearly a 2 year old video, and this is more of a nitpick, but I just leveled my mage to 10 and if you have lesser magic wand I'd suggest from 5-10 you cast frostbolt / fireball no more than twice per fight (and more often probably once per fight) and then wand the target down. Your wand does something like 1 or 2 less DPS than your fireball and frost bolt, but the extra time you get regening mana while wanding offsets the lower DPS. 3x fireball / frostbolt means you'll have to drink or spend entire fights just wanding. At this level range it's not worth it to drink at all with such a powerful wand.

    Edit – well thinking about it more, I guess it depends on what you're fighting in terms of how many fireballs / frostbolts but I think my point is made better by just saying: don't drink the mage water at these levels as it's less efficient than just wanding.

  6. Couldn’t find a group to help or anyone that wasn’t calling me a scrub. Couldn’t grind on my own or do any mines or missions requiring kobolds. Great tips but impractical for me as a new wow player. Couldn’t stand dying 8 times every 30 minutes.
