I wouldn't step into the arena until I had all or nearly all of the BG honor rewards (and plenty of res/sta gems). Undergeared players of any class will be cut down in short order in the arena, but a mage won't stand a chance without the sta and resilience from honor rewards.Also, the author doesn't stress the CC roll of the mage nearly enough. In the arena, the mage's roll is to keep a sheep up for as much of the game as possible, DPS'ing primarily when the burst is called for by the MA. Once your shatter gimmick is complete, return to polybotting.

Regarding the comment of "Do not arena until your fully geared from honor rewards" ......Thats not very logical really... I would rather lose 10 matchs a week than play 0. At least you get a couple hundred arena points, and thats 1 week closer to another Epic. After those 10 games absolutely go honor grind... Then when your fully epic then, you can start spending time playing 100's of arena a week to get better.
