Aug 15th 2010 7:12PM Yeah to be honest this article seems pretty noobish. I have played tanks and healers and there is really no difference between healing tanks of different classes.
The real things that make a difference healing: bad tank vs good tank, geared tank vs undergeared tank. That's it. The talents of the tanks are balanced to make them relatively similar in terms of avoidance and mitigation... the differences are NOT significant enough to change the way you heal one tank class vs another. At all.
The Pally tank whose armory is linked in the article is a noob too. His whole spec is just wrong.
Feb 10th 2009 7:31PM Actually, I've found death knights to be rather easy to kill with my frost mage. The only thing they do that I find truly annoying is death grip, since a mage relies on distance to win. But all I need to do is just blink as soon as they death grip and they usually only get one hit on me, which is absorbed totally by my ice barrier.
I think the reason I am able to kill death knights so easily is because mages have such high burst damage. I can see how classes that have to grind out a fight with a DK might have a tougher time.
The classes I hate the most in pvp? RET PALLYS, shadow priests, warlocks and shammys.
