I have a 60 Holy PvP+PvE priest and a 60 mage and a 60 warrior. To hear of anything but buffs to both my mage and priest continues to remind me why I won't play this game. It's sad because I've been waiting for my server queues to return to something sensible (less than 1000), and now this happens... While minor changes, they are just another slap in the face...Mage Notes: My mage has +598dmg and is regularly the number 1 killer/damage dealer in battle grounds.My mage who is the absolute worst solo PvP class (well maybe except for my warrior), just got his damage reduced while getting returned to the pre-nerf state of patch 2.0 (with CounterSpell). Don't get me wrong, I understand this is a PvE nerf but taking between 60-800 damage off of my frostbolts (depending on conditions/buffs/cooldowns being used), is pretty bad for a class that relies on doing huge burst damage or risk getting 1-3 shotted.If Blizzard plans to reduce the Burst damage dealers, only way of killing in PvP, then they need to give the mage other options. While people are happy about the return of CounterSpell to a useful state, it is actually nothing but a return to a place where Mages are still one of the worst solo PvP classes. Take our dmg away, but give us more utility. Or just let us have our reign as top damage dealers without a nerf that scales as your gear gets better...
