Mage abilities are abilities used by mages. Most abilities are shared between all specializations, while some are only specific to one (or two) specializations. Mage abilities use three schools of magic: Arcane, Fire, and Frost.

Class

All mages automatically learn the following spells at the specified level, regardless of specialization. Portals and teleports are listed in another section of this article.

Spell Level
[Frost Nova] 3
[Blink] 7
[Polymorph] 18
[Conjure Refreshment] 22
[Ice Block] 26
[Slow Fall] 32
[Counterspell] 34
[Time Warp] 65
[Spellsteal] 72

Specializations

The three mage specializations are Arcane (caster DPS), Fire (caster DPS) and Frost (caster DPS).

For a summary of the character and strengths of each spec, see Mage specializations.

Talents

Talents become available at level 15, with a new tier unlocked every 15 levels. Only one talent can be chosen from each tier.

Glyphs

Glyphs are spell and ability enhancements that add cosmetic effects or minor enhancements, created by scribes. Glyphs are color-coded to the class for which they are meant.

Glyphs can be removed any time outside of combat using  [Vanishing Powder] and can be used from level 25.

Teleportation

Mages can learn to teleport themselves and open up portals for their party members for instant travel to friendly capital cities by visiting a portal trainer. Portal trainers are typically found nearby the mage trainers in each capital city. Since patch 5.0.4, neither teleports nor portals require reagents.

Extra spells

These spells are alternate versions of trainable spells, functionally identical, but possessing a different icon or other cosmetic difference. They are learned through books or given as quest rewards.
