We just downed this boss this week (Polaris on Blackhand, US) and I must say that mages are more important than people might think on this boss for two reasons:* In phase 1 and 3 mages can Ice Block to survive otherwise fatal errors such as a bad Seethe or a Fixeate during Enrage* In phase 2 mages MUST spellsteal the bosses Runed Shield, because that shield gives mages INSANE DPS boost by giving us 100% haste bonus and an immunity from reflected damage and interrupts it causes. Towards the end of phase 2, a warlock should use the last of his mana to summon a helhunter that can eat the shield when the bosses aura has drained all mana of the raid, but before that mage MUST get all the shield they can. I would recommend mages to stop casting 3 seconds before runeshield timer and start spamming the Spellsteal button. Also, spec arcane and AB spam on this fight to maximise damage and minimise treat problems.
