nearly everyone knows arcane is one of the best spec at the moment to use.
But here's a guide incase you want to play a fire mage instead!

Stat Priority

Intellect > Spell Hit (15%) > Crit > Haste > Mastery

Stat Summaries

Intellect Increases damage dealt by spells and slightly increases critical strike chance.

Spell Hit (15%) Any Hit Rating or Expertise will increase your chance to hit with spells and at 15% Spell Hit (5100 Rating) your spells can no longer miss on bosses. Spells missing is the easiest way to lose DPS, so always make sure you are at this cap. To check your hit percentage, open your character panel and then check under the Spell tab for “Hit Chance.” Make sure it is at or slightly above 15%.

Crit Increases the chance for your attacks to critically hit for additional damage. Crit is highly effective because it increases the number of instant-cast Pyroblasts you receive from Heating Up -> Pyroblast!.

Haste Decreases cast time and increases DoT ticking speeds.

Mastery Ignite adds the Ignite DoT effect to your various direct damage Fire spells.

Talent build and Glyphs

http://www.wowhead.com/talent#mx\Y| Follow that one and everything will be alright!

Major Glyphs

Glyph of Combustion Recommended. Good for shorter fights.
Glyph Inferno Blast Recommended. Boost to AoE DPS.
Glyph of Arcane Explosion Optional. Improved AoE utility.
Glyph of Counterspell Optional. Good for interrupt duty.
Glyph of Evocation Optional. Small boost to survivability.

Minor Glyphs

Glyph of Mirror Image Required. Improved DPS for Images.
Glyph of Momentum Optional. Improved mobility with Blink.

DPS Rotation

Armor: Molten Armor

DPS Priority: Execute the following priority for optimal DPS.

Combustion with Ignite on the target.
Pyroblast with Pyroblast! proc.
Inferno Blast when Heating Up procs.
Living Bomb refresh with < 1 tick remaining.
Fireball as a filler spell.

Fire Mage DPS is based on the use of Combustion and converting Heating Up into Pyroblast! procs. Your top priority is to use Combustion when Ignite on your target. After that, cast Pyroblast with Pyroblast! procs. You can force Pyroblast! procs by waiting for Heating Up to proc off a spell critical and then use Inferno Blast as your next spell. Inferno Blast will always crit and guarantees that Heating Up becomes Pyroblast!. From here, apply Living Bomb and refresh it just before it expires. Use Fireball when waiting on other cooldowns or for Heating Up procs.

Finally, in addition to executing the DPS priority, you should always remain within a Rune of Power to maximize your Mana regen and DPS.

AoE Rotation

Inferno Blast
Living Bomb
Dragon's Breath
Arcane Explosion

With 7 or less enemies, it is best to pick one and proceed with the single target rotation. Inferno Blast with Glyph Inferno Blast will spread your DoTs and Living Bomb to nearby targets. This includes the DoT created by Combustion. At 8 or more enemies, maintain Living Bomb on 3 targets and use Flamestrike and Dragon's Breath on cooldown. Use Arcane Explosion as a filler spell.

Effective Cooldowns

These effective cooldowns are available if you chose them in your talent build.

Living Bomb Maintain at all times.
Presence of Mind Use for instant cast Pyroblast when no Pyroblast!.

These are effective cooldowns to try and incorporate into most all encounters.

Alter Time Use when you have Invocation and Pyroblast! buffs up.
Combustion Use as directed in the single target DPS section.
Evocation Use as needed to maintain Invocation.
Mana Gem Use as needed for Mana.
Mirror Image Use on cooldown for a small DPS boost.
Time Warp Use as directed by your raid or party leader.

Hope it's helpfull for you and register to get access for more guides!
