Christian, you're dreaming.Blizz is NOT EVER going to make mages really powerful. We're the butler, chauffer and cook of Wow, and Blizz isn't going to change us, cause to Blizz, we're too valuable in supplying needed things for the other classes.Frostfire will simply be a reduced version of either Frost or Firebolt, and Blizz will puff out their chest for being SO SMART to GIVE us this wonderful spell that should solve all our problems.Pretty soon Chilton will let slip that what he really meant by "jaw-dropping damage" was that mages will now be able to apply their current damage, or close to it, to all forms of enemies, without the limitations of fire or frost, and it was never Blizz's intent to improve the actual DPS of mages, only their UTILITY.A long time ago, Blizz posted...back in Patch 1.4 or 1.5...that "no further class revisions are currently foreseen". Obviously, that was a joke, given the rise of the pet users and rogues, but mages have absolutely been frozen, ever since.As nice as it would be for mages to get some useful damage improvement, it's not gonna happen, and anyone who grasps at the farciful straws Blizz tosses out is kidding themselves.Having QQ'd for the record, don't stop writing this column, cause it does read well, even if the subject is a dead one.

I have to dissagre with you. Blizz has said that they are improving mages DPS because of their decreased Utility.Have faith, don't let the mage class sink back into the QQers we once were!

Look further into history than two weeks ago man. Blizzard said the EXACT SAME THING two years ago, and a year before that.And NOTHING happened. It's not faith you want us to have. Faith is when you believe that something is going to happen based on past evidence. What you want us to have is Hope. Well, I had Hope. But some Felhunter came and ate it off me, then spell locked me to keep from recasting it.
