Hey Christina,As always a great article...But here's a thing I experience in a whole lot of my instance runs.I'm the last man standing??? What??? The mage survived..????Yes! He did... My skirt is on fire, sure my staff a little broken and my wand ended up in a place it doesn't belong but i managed to get out alive. (Or died last)I'm playing a Frost mage. My Ice barrier is up as much as possible but don't use ice armor.I'll use Mage armor for the mana benefit. So I don't have any mana problems.Sure the healer is way to busy to keep the guy dressed as a tin can alive. I have to trust on my potions and evocation to heal myself.Or the lightwell!! That is a great thing to have around.. Just stand next to it when doing the slaughter as we mages are supposed to do. My water elemental saved my fragile neck more than once. When the group is about to wipe, stop casting (may be you have MI of cool down, cast that) and get the hell out of there. The Elemental will continue to attack the boss, mob or what is planning on stealing my dress and point sharp objects in my direction.He will get aggro almost instantly and save me from a horrible death. But I'm strolling away from the point I was amazed about..Why do I survive??? I know i'm not the best mage around. I don't have any pvp experience. I really mean NO exp. in pvp. My DPS is ok. I think I play my mage well.Am I just lucky or is the majority of players still trying to adapt to cata??Or are mages not as fragile as we used to be.. Can we finally roast every lock without risking our neck's or freeze them to their demise without even a scratch on our staff?I hope so... All and all it's great being a mage who can LOL when every member of the group is death except me.Keep the very nice articles coming, and I will keep reading them...Unquendor..
