I am so confused by this post. Two things are really confusing me (though maybe it's because you're a Warlock).#1: Okay. Archmage Pants is, by scientific fact, the greatest blogger on WoW.com, so I can understand why you would hope he would take over the Care and Feeding in a time of need. The problem is that you would then have a man called "Archmage Pants" running a column about Warriors. This could lead to a disaster of biblical proportions. Riots in the streets, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria.#2: Are you some sort of self-hating Warlock? How could you-Why would you-I don't even-Why do you crave the hate and malice of Christian Belt?

There is one other time to use frost nova in instances. Step 1 (important): Make sure there is a warlock in your group.Step 2: Pull aggro on a single hard-hitting melee mob.Step 3: Lure the mob next to the warlock (and only the warlock).Step 4: Frost nova and run out of melee range of the mob.Step 5 (optional): Use one of the aggro dump abilities.Step 6: Watch as the mob beats the living daylight out of the warlock.Step 7 (optional): /tar *poopwarlocksname*, /point, /laughMake sure you do this only when there are no other non-warlock casters near the rooted mob or you will risk their lives, which are actually important.

@Mognet T I believe Life tap proves all 'locks are emo
Im a warlock, I'm weird and angsty by default and the hatred of mages fuels my (hopfully soon to be green) fire, let alone a mage of the highest calibre such as archmage fancy pants.As for running CAFW he clearly has the natural tank rage within himAnd my warrior would like to say her pants are no less fancy than that of her cloth wearing friends and foes

Our raid weekly two weeks ago was Noth. We two healed it as a Priest and a Paladin, so no curse removal. The Mage in our group flat out REFUSED to decurse. ...So we kicked him, got a resto Shammy, and I went Shadow.

Archmage Pants > all.Deal with it.

This post makes sense to ME, if Rossi's soda habit from today's WRUP isn't a horrible, horrible exaggeration. Good god man.

My one gripe with mages? Mirror Image is freaken annoying... oh and your Water Elemental is a piss-poor excuse for a minion. And portals are pretty handy... okay that's 3 gripes. And I can't count. WHAT DO YOU EXPECT? I'M AN EMO WARLOCK! /lifetap

I did six Blood Furnace runs via the random dungeon tool on my death knight yesterday. Apparantly, I'm a good tank, because nobody wanted to leave ... which is why we ended up doing the place six times. Anyway ... there was an Arcane Mage in the group ... level 64. All he did was spam Arcane Missiles ... specifically on the target I'd marked as the last one to be killed.Every. Single. Pull. I lost count of the number of times a mob started going after him forcing me to target it and take care of the situation.

@UlurIf I've got a moron like that in a group, I typically refuse to either pull back off of them or heal them, depending on the toon I'm on. Or if I'm on my hunter main, I talk to the tank, convince them to let said person die, then I MD and toss the mob back to the tank where it belongs.Case in point, I was grouped with a mage last night for Mana Tombs who would run up to the mobs, kinda sit there for a while, then pop a blizzard when they were at about 20% health. After a boss fight where said mage did less than 5% of the overall damage on the boss, and after said mage refused to listen to advice, I simply stopped healing him.He's lucky the tank was good, as somehow even without heals he managed to live through the remainder of the instance.

Clearly the mage was confident he could kill the mob before it reached him thereby giving you one less mob to have to worry about. ;-)You could have tested it out by letting the mob go once and see what happened. :D
