Fireball is your main nuke with this spec. Fire is most certainly not dead, and it probably can output better dps than FFB spec.
Jun 28th 2008 5:47PM I never lost to a warlock on aoe in Hyjal. Especially since patch 2.4 was released and buffed Arcane Explosion twice - 50% higher damage cap and spell haste reducing the global cooldown.
Yes It's harder to aoe as mage nowadays, I have to use cooldowns and sometimes *gasp* drink mana potions on trash, but on the larger packs, when I pop Icy Veins, warlocks have no chance.
Having said that, I still think mages should do better aoe damage. It should not even be a contest considering we're supposed to be the "kings of aoe".
May 25th 2008 5:29AM They had 3 mages on most other boss kills in SWP so I assume that having only 1 mage on this particular kill was due to encounter specifics.
Mage DPS is fine, certainly better than arms warrior DPS and competitive with destruction warlock DPS. It just depends on having an optimized group setup and on Curse of the Elements being present.
Dec 5th 2007 8:03PM This is like WoW forums indeed. Someone makes an interesting comment that you may or may not agree with, and gets a barrage of responses that show a complete and total failure in basic reading comprehension.
The author wants to play the game the way he enjoys playing it. He does not want to abuse the game mechanics, he does not want free epics, he does not want his alts to magically get to level 70 overnight. He's complaining that the level requirements on meeting stones impose an arbitrary and unnecessary restriction on their usage. The example that he provides is that level 70 players could not use the Scarlet Monastery meeting stone in order to summon missing party members for participation in legitimate level 70 event at the SM graveyard.
The fact that he mentions the monthly fee has nothing to do with his point. He's using it to display his annoyance with said restriction.
And one more thing, in order to "abuse" the meeting stone system as a way of traveling faster you need to have 2 people already in place to summon you. Not very a efficient method I would say.
