TBC Fire Mage Aldor or Scryer

    We recommend going Scryers as a Fire Mage in TBC Classic. The Aldor shoulder enchant,
    Greater Inscription of Discipline
    , is slightly better than the Scryer
    Greater Inscription of the Orb
    . However, Scryer's has the advantage of providing one of the best trinkets in Phase 1, the
    Scryer's Bloodgem
    and a powerful ring, the
    Seer's Signet
    .
