What priority of actions do you recommend for a Fire Mage when ganked by the enemy faction?

Both your immediate reaction and as the fight progresses?
Flee vs stay and fight?
Tricks and tips?

Depends on the situation and the oppisition. Druids, Palys, healers your gonna struggle one on one. 2 or more no chance.

To escape a melee you can ice nova/dragon's breath > blink > invisability.

To escape a good ranged i'd dragon's breath > start casting pyro (im assuming they'll break the stun and interupt) > polymorph (interupt wont silence arcane) then blink > blink > invisable.

To escape a group. You need ice novas blinks invisability and luck.

If its one on one against a class without strong heals and comb and FBs are off cd just try and burn them down. You have one of the strongest bursts in game. If it fails you can use you ccs and invis to escape then.

Try cc with frost nova, dragons breath, ring of frost and sheep. Toss some pies at them til they freak out and pop defensives. Once those wear off pop combustion and make your best murloc impression for 10 seconds. It's a good idea to not used combustion while questing in world pvp. Its like your best defense against getting ganked.
