Welcome to our World of Warcraft Classic Arcane Mage Build Guide with details on the Best Stats to use and what Race you should choose when playing this Spec. Players can use this in both PVE and PVP, however, you find that this Aracne Talent Spec Build for WoW Classic Patch 1.12 is more suited for Player VS Player battlegrounds. This is mainly due to the many Spell Damage Buffs and Spell Casting Buffs you will receive from the Aracne Talent Tree, combo this with the Best Race such as Troll and its Berskeing Racial Trait and you can melt opponents really fast.
Arcane Mage Best Race
If you view our other Mage Builds you will not be surprised when we recommend Gnomes and Trolls as the Best Races to use for the Arcane Mage Spec Build. This is because of the racial traits that work so well with mages happen to be the Trolls Berserking which increases cast speed. The Gnomes ability to remove snares is also huge for mages in PVP and the free +5% more INT is a nice bonus.
- Best – Gnome, Troll
- Average – Humans, Undead
- Weak –
- Not Available – Night Elf, Orc, Tauren, Dwarves
