I've been wondering what's up at Blizz ever since the Conterspell see-saw. There were a lot of mages asking, "what were you thinking" when it was placed on the Global Cooldown only to have Blizz completely reverse it a month-and-a-half later. It just never made sense, and we were told it was for "consistency." And I don't want to get a worked up again over that nonsense.It's just another point in a long list of questionable evolution of the mage class. Our Evocation, which we learned at lvl 20, gives me about half of my mana back; our mana gems do not scale properly with the mana pools of 60+ mages; and then there's Hypothermia. I an understand the argument against 2x iceblocks in Arena, but it's a viable strat in PvE encounters and almost necessary in fights against Rogues - aka "The Battle of the Cooldowns."I'm happy the frostbite bug is acknowledged. Even as a mage I agree that it should have DR's, but it would literally break PvP frost mage builds if it messed with controlled roots.But in all honesty, I'll be too busy running away from Rogues to care.
