Jun 4th 2010 6:37PM Oh yes, Karazhan :X I'm so enthusiast when people talk about Karazhan. I quit playing WoW 2 years ago, but I keep in touch with the game, and I always loved Karazhan. In my opinion, is the best/greatest raid instance Blizzard ever designed in this game. And I remember when I was a raid leader through Kara aswel. Good times. Great times. It was an amazing concept..so beautiful and atractive, yet so challenging. Will stay forever in my player heart
Nov 7th 2007 10:35AM @8. Hai Hybrys. Is good to see you again, I missed your "awesome&fullofwin" comments. This is about PvP, not PvE. Thanks, come again.
Nov 7th 2007 10:02AM @everstraw, do you ever PvP? Arena at least? If yes, quit playing WoW please. If no just shut up.
Nov 4th 2007 8:51AM @Hybrys, encounters where range helps a lot, greatly increasing the survivability and even the DPS: Malchezaar, Gruul, Void Reaver, Solarian, Kael'thas, Leotheras, Naj'entus, Teron Gorefiend, Archimode. Just a part of them.
@Zechleton, Resilience affects fire more than any other spec, on the initial crit, and on Ignite, wich is considered DoT effect. The damage isn't far from frost, but there is considerably less defence. Same for arcane. There is no need to make all specs viable for PvE/PvP, but to improve them. Dave explained this quite well. A huge percent of PvE mages are specced 10/48/3. Another huge percent of PvP mages are specced frost. Don't you smell "cookie-cutter"?
@36. You're retarded.
Nov 3rd 2007 8:41PM @Hybrys, lol, couldn't resist to post again, 900DPS in Hyjal?? That mage shouldn't even be on top10, unless your guild sucks. There is too much fail surrouding you.
Nov 3rd 2007 8:38PM It used to be, in beta.Beta is nothing, we're talking about live. Iceblock was always there.
If you're smart enough, no mage can break you out of stealth, and way to go for you. It's true that rogue aren't that hard for a frost mage, but a skilled well-geared rogue blowing all his cooldowns can destroy a frost mage, unless the mage is lucky.
Of course there may be exceptions, there are always better players out there. Whoever thinks that skill is nothing and gear is all, is very very wrong.
my last post, i'm out
Nov 3rd 2007 8:13PM Shaddowz, Hypothermia does not belong in this game. We have the lowest survivability in PvP, and that makes frost our only viable spec. 30 Seconds was already awfull, but skilled mages adapted to it, hardly. Now , increasing it to 45 is devastating, we were crap in 2vs2, now we're nonexistent there. 15 more seconds is an eternity in PvP as the OP said.
Don't compare CloS with Ice Block. CloS is on a 1min cooldown, and you can attack, run, dance, whatever you want in it. We can't do anything. Also, you don't need to spend 21 talent points for it.
Nov 3rd 2007 7:59PM @19. ....../facepalm again.
Ok, let's take it nice and slowly, I see that you're still in Kara and these are big numbers for you. 900...lol
Nov 3rd 2007 7:57PM @18./facepalm.
Your excellent theorycrafting talents and knowledge proven us how smart you are. I don't have time to explain how our talents works to every scrub like you. Sorry. Elephantards like you don't deserve any explications.
For Balasan, I'm sorry if my first post offended you, I'm just going mad when I see people that don't elaborate more on their thoughts, to say it nice.
Nov 3rd 2007 7:44PM @ Balasan, we whine a lot, but because we have reasons to do it. Since TBC came out, a mage player wonders what is the point of this class. Free water?
That information, not really an information, is how the mage class was designed.
Rogues deserve to be the #1 DPSer in PvE, since they bring nothing on the table, but we, compared to locks/hunters/shpriests, deserve far more.
