This page is part of our Fire Mage PvP Guide.
The Human racial bonus (
Will to Survive) is a great way to getout of stuns. If you think you will be the focus target versus teams withmultiple stuns, this race allows you to play
Relentless. This willhelp increase your overall survivability. It is also important to note thatHumans also have
The Human Spirit. This increases your secondary stats(Haste, Critical Strike, Mastery, Versatility). This is another beneficialreason to play Human.
The most important part of being a Void Elf is the
Preternatural Calm racial. This causes your spell casts to no longer bedelayed when taking damage. This is great, because even when you are theprimary target, you will still be able to deal maximum damage and cast crowdcontrol.
Spatial Rift can also be mentioned, because the teleportit provides gives you additional mobility and will help yoursurvivability.
The Night Elf racial bonus (
Shadowmeld) is always a strong choice.This racial has a high skill cap, but using it to avoid crowd control can bevery powerful. For example, if a Mage is casting
Polymorph on you, useShadowmeld to avoid it. If you use Shadowmeld at the same time that a Priestuses their
Psychic Scream, you will not be feared.
The Gnome racial bonus (
Escape Artist) removes any movement speedreduction effects on you. With only a 1-minute cooldown, this can be used bothdefensively or offensively. You can use this to help kite incoming damage or useit to remove slows on you while chasing down an enemy. Another racial thatGnome provides is
Expansive Mind. This will increase yourmaximum Mana, which helps with not running out of resources.
The Orc racial bonus (
Hardiness) is great for reducing theduration of stuns on you. This is absolutely the best Horde racial to have ifyou are primarily focusing on PvP. In addition to Hardiness, Orcs also have the
Blood Fury racial. This is off the global cooldown and should be usedwhen you are using your burst rotation.
The Undead racial bonus (
Will of the Forsaken) removes any Charm, Fearor Sleep effect from you. This is a great racial versus specializations, likeDestruction Warlocks,that are able to fear you constantly throughout an arena match. It is importantto note that this does share a 30-second cooldown with
Gladiator”s Medallion, so it is advised to only use it when you do notwant to waste Gladiators Medallion.
The Troll racial bonus (
Berserking) grants you a large amountof Haste. You should activate this ability right before you are using importantcooldowns or to cast crowd control faster. Another racial to note is
Da Voodoo Shuffle. This significantly reduces the duration of slows onyou and will help when kiting enemy players that are focusing you.
