Mar 22nd 2008 9:22PM Amazing job, you made a well informed article with a lot of helpful information. One thing all mages should know though is arcane missles are your friend. It is the anti-pole kiting move.
If the target is in LoS when you use it, no matter how many times they run behind a pole, they will take the full 5 missles. I have seen this freak out many a druid. You use it, they freak out and keep running as they are not sure what is hitting them, and then you freeze them as that come back around for you (With pet if it is up) and ice lance for a nice 2K damage spike and repeat. They will be constantly taking damage which leaves your team to either catch up on the pole kiter and gank him or find another target while whoever is being pole kited cannot help their team without risk of a mage owning them.
Jan 31st 2008 4:56PM Oh wow, mages underpowered? What a laugh, I can go outside orgrimmar and kill almost everyone out there, most of the time not using any trinket, ice block, cold snap, or even my elemental. Just yesterday I was sapped in an AB, I used a trinket and got resapped immediately, 1 rouge pops out and garrote silences me, right before it wore off another rouge did the same thing. Not only did they have around 4 seconds to beat on me without me being able to blink, they got poisons up the but on me. I was able to live and kill the two rouges with 3K health left. It is all about the player behind the toon.
