WOW Mage Leveling & Quest Guide
Congratulations, you have chosen to play a WOW Mage. If you are unfamiliar with playing a Mage in world of warcraft This info will be very valuable to you when starting out. In this article I will be pointing out major aspects of the world of warcraft Mage and tips to help get your Mage leveling up very quickly.

If you have played other fantasy games that have mage's then you have a good idea of how to play the world of warcraft Mage. In a nut shell the Mage is magic oriented and not much into melee fighting. The world of warcraft Mage fits this description, but the powerful magic available to the WOW mage makes it no slouch when it comes to battling foes. Being a Mage you are not adept to melee fighting, the Mage character simply does not have the melee skills necessary. The damage that a Mage can cause is outstanding, but the Mage needs to be protected since it has no self healing abilities.The Mage has some really cool abilities that are of great benefit to themselves and their group, such as the ability to conjure food and water, cause great wide spread damage to its enemies, and transport themselves and their group to capital cities from anywhere.

Lets look at some traits of the available Mage races:

The fact that the Mage class has no way to heal itself makes the draenei race a good race to consider for its Gift of the Naaru healing ability.
The trolls have their own healing ability called regeneration which works a little differently than the draeneis' Gift of the Naaru but is still very beneficial to the Mage.
I find that the blood elf makes for a nice Mage using its Arcane Torrent and Arcane Affinity it can do some serious damage.
The gnome makes a good Mage with its Expansive Mind to replenish mana and Escape Artist is very useful in getting out of sticky situations.
Humans specialize in the sword and mace which can't be used by the Mage so they make for a fair Mage at best.
The forsaken race only helps the Mage when battling a priest or warlock and little else so I don't recomend them unless you really want a challenge.

At the very start, no matter what character class or race you are playing I recommend keeping it simple. Learn the basics of your character and get a good understanding of your characters skill's and abilities. Do your best to only stay in combat for short periods of time.

Fight from a distance in the beginning using spells and long range weapons. But don't misinterpret this as just fooling around. Focus your efforts on questing and be sure not to miss any quests. Double check each zone you are in to be sure that you have completed all the quests available.

Train, train, train.
Learn everything that local trainers can teach you and don't move on in world of warcraft until you are sure you have learned it all. Get some insight on which professions might work best for your chosen character. Don't take choosing your professions lightly, start learning about them early on. Each character class will benefit differently with each profession, find out which will help your character the most. Most players don't think about getting a mount until much latter, but I suggest planning ahead and saving some gold so you can get a mount as soon as you hit level 20.

Some people may disagree but I find the Mage to be one of the easier classes to play at the beginning levels. True the Mage is very frail and can't handle much damage but the Mage starts off with Fireball which is a very good range attack. To make leveling your Mage easier be sure to use the Frost Armor self buff to increase your defenses. When the Mage uses these two spells together it will make leveling go much faster.
