I still don't get why people complain about frost mages so bad. If you have no resilience, yes they can hurt, but so do most classes, and with the recent frost nerfs our damage is pretty pathetic, doing at most18k damage during DF agaisnt someone with decent resilience.

They complain because, even as a DK, there's an incredibly small window to actually kill them, and if you have equal resil you lose 1-1 because they can just keep kiting you and when you catch up, you still can't pop that little ice barrier.That being said, the real solution is to CC them and hit them last, or bring in a hunter.

It's because people feel like there is no counter to frost mages.- Decent dmg output- Decent defenses (assuming geared)- Excellent control - Sheep - Snares - Immobilizes - kiting/running

@nikdaheratik:Not to quibble too much, as I know Frost Mages are much better 1v1 right now than many other classes, but Ice Barrier is only a 12k absorb (and that's with a glyph); it scales very badly with gear, too. Our defences come more from our kiting ability.I'm a pure PvE Mage, and I support Druids getting root removal on shifting back. It was a stupid change.
