What spec is best end game?

What spec seems to out perform others in endgame pvp? I’ve been told each spec. I love fire it hits hard but seems to require so much set up. Frost is great for constant cc and arcane I was told seems to fall off later on. Just
Curious what the mage community says about this. Which spec is best end game?

I play frost and I wish I had a clear answer for you, but the truth is that they are even enough that you can pick the one that matches the playstyle you prefer. Here’s a rough idea of the damage profile of each. Keep in mind, these summaries are based on my own personal experience:

Fire: “feast-or-famine” damage profile. During combustion you will do very high damage, but as soon as it’s over, it’s wet-noodle time. Not much going on until the next combustion.

Arcane (Kyrian): More consistent damage than fire but still bursty, even though not quite as high of damage during bursts.

Frost: Not much burst, but damage is more consistent.

Now if you want to pvp, then I think fire is best, but I’m not much of a PVPer so I don’t know if that has changed.
