Pretty disappointing. We didn't get anything we didn't know before, and they've not actually said what they're planning for us.

As GC said, they think we're almost perfect. Don't fix something that ain't broken. Everytime a patch goes by and there are no changes to mages I sacrifice a warlock to the Mage Gods, cause that means one patch we didn't get nerfed.Our future plans. Well, I'm sure they're working on making frost pve viable, but that's harder than you think. What would you do? I've heard a lot of people say "make a permanent water elemental", but wouldn't that play out a lot like warlocks then?Besides, we all remember patch 3.1 when they said what they had in mind for the patch for mages, but a lot of that stuff never happened and we got major QQ even though they never promised anything. If I was in the dev team, I wouldn't display the future plans either.

@ ORLY: I'm pretty sure the reason they're not telling us the future plans for mages is because they have no future plans for mages. QQ when changes don't materialize is not really an excuse, considering all of the info we've been getting regarding changes to other classes.Dev approach to mage concerns these days seems to be "be thankful you don't get a nerf bat you whiny bitches, who cares if one of your three viable specs is a gimmick we didn't design for and another is reliant on an outdated mechanic that doesn't cut it anymore in modern times". And as much as I'm a bitter Frost mage they have a point, we could be the piñata that is priests nowadays.

Mage's are pretty much fine as is. The devs don't change things just for the sake of changing them.
