I have a mage for a main and I don't suffer from much downtime. Although the first few levels weren't so easy as I got hit a lot, once my frost talent tree started to develop I got hit less and less, and when I got ice barrier, I stopped taking damage from PvE period. Downtime isn't a big problem, because at low levels you dont have much to recover anyways. When you do need recovery, Evocation works just fine, even with a 4 minute cooldown, it's not that bad. A few levels after getting Evocation, I invested in Glyph of Evocation, making my downtime for healing HP less. I think DKs and Paladins are great for starters too, but I think mages, with their array of casts and instant casts, to be subtle and not so chaotic. When casting Frostbolt, I have 2.5 seconds to think of what to do next, often followed by another one, and when something gets close, Frost Nova, back up, repeat. This isn't always the case, but I don't have much difficulty with any monster around my level (at 51 I solo'd a 56 elite, but that was hard) which makes leveling pretty easy as well. An added bonus is that you don't have to spend too much time trying to find a group for instances, because people whisper you for ranged DPS. food/water, and ports at the end. Portals and Teleports are great ways to make money and move around fast, which should help out casual players.
