    My mage is now maining in Fire too, having acquired precisely 17% spell hit on gear.

    Small note - The difference between each sp/haste compared with sp/crit is around 3 dps. If you can cope with losing around 15 dps it's probably worth keeping these in existing gear if you are swapping back and forth between fire and arcane.

    Hmm, may look to change my secondary talent from frost to fire. At least then I will be able to check it out. We shall see

    Zalid, that is what I did. I was nice to have the option to switch back to Arcane if it all went TU.

    Still not had a chance to raid with fire yet hopefully on Wednesday.

    I take it you have no tier 10 gear ?
    I was awash in hit for quite some time. Unfortunately, the top end gear is not good at giving hit.
    I am even having to gem for hit in Arcane now
    I actually have two pieces of T10 but got lucky in ICC25 and picked up a couple of pieces of lootz with hit on!

    Wish I could get rid of some hit now!

    Once you get to 4 piece T10 you will be struggling for +Hit to get to 394 you need for Fire. Keep the those legs they are better the the T10 ones for Fire spec. Basically you will need the following with +Hit; Neck, Bracer (Lady's Brittle) and Off Hand. You may also need the Wand or the Ring.

    Be wary of looking at your gear on a per slot basis though. Sometimes it might be better to take an item that isn't considered best in slot to make up hit rating or maintain a set bonus.

    One tip for everyone.
    Do not throw out all your old gear - you never know when you may need one of them to give you a good combination.
