Classic Mage Guide


This is a list of grinding spots from 1-60. These spots were inspired by Jokerd and his run to 60. I have personally tried a few of these spots with great success.

His stream is bookmarked and linked for each spot to help you have the same success he had with these spots.

How to AOE Grind as a Frost Mage

1. find your spot and locate large groups of mobs that ideally aren’t casters.
2. Aggro all of them (a mount will make this easier) and Frost Nova the group.
3. Run till you are at max range and begin casting blizzard until the mobs are low.
4. Once they are low you can use Cone of Cold or Arcane Explosion to finish the pack off.
5. Drink up and rinse/repeat.

All the ones on the dock and the boat and around the fire. There’s only maybe 3 or 4 there at a time in the open that shoot.
