For a slightly more in-depth analysis of the mage racials: http://doyoumindifiplay.blogspot.com/2009/09/mage-racials.htmlFor an excessively long mage levelling guide: http://doyoumindifiplay.blogspot.com/2009/09/definitive-mage-levelling-guide.htmlShameless self-promotion aside, the last point Christian makes is really important. A lot of people complain that the levelling is boring or whatever, and I can see their point of view to a degree, but if you take the time to read the quest logs, think about what you're doing and why, and allow yourself to become even slightly immersed in the game world then it can be a lot of fun. Certainly more than if you play in the mindset of a jaded power-gaming minmaxer. Eh. People have crazy tastes.

For me, I always read the quests and stuff, but I've got an 80 warrior, warlock, priest, druid, rogue, plus high level dk and hunter, with a paladin and shaman at 10+. Leveling gets tedious after a while.So yeah, I made a mage, I ran around to get the lunar festival dress for him. (Mages wearing dresses shoulda been on the list above!) In the process I dinged level 2. He's got a diamond tipped cane and a kirin tor tabard and hat. He's great!As a bank Alt...I got a warlock, a mage is like a warlock that can't take care of himself.Warlocks put out candy dishs at the party, mages serve coffee and pastries in the hopes that the big kids won't pick on him...Sure you can give an intel buff, but so can my demondog, and he smells better. :)
