Apr 6th 2010 8:20AM yea the other two were frostfire and frost, nether come that close to arcane/fire but frostfire still comes upper mid table on most fights.
Frost, although one of the lowest dps specs out there has such a crazy amount of control and survivability. This can be amazing in some of the icc fights where tones of damage isn't the biggest priority ( tanking the prince and add control on dreamwalker).
the pvp specs i was talking about were frost, arcane shatter and (fire). Fire only really works in battle grounds and just relys on things dying FAST and having a nice range of abilitys to keep distance.
in the end the other 2 dps specs frostfire and frost although not in an amazing spot are much better then most ppl give them credit for.
Apr 6th 2010 4:43AM seriously mate get over it,
this expansion have been the best ever for mages we have 4 (yes 4) viable raid specs, 2 viable pvp specs ( 3 if you count the fire pvp but that is painful in arena with out a shammy). arcane and frost mages are kings of pve and pvp respectively.
yes we can face roll anyone (frost is close tho) but we shouldn't be able too,
in the end if you think mages suck right now than you REEAAAALLLLLLLY need to (and i hate to say this) l2p

Mar 13th 2010 7:51AM Shadowmorne not being usable by shammys makes me sad, not for any lore or gameplay reason, just one personal one
shadowmorne + windfury weapon= BG fun!
just to remind me of the fun i had with the arcanite reaper

*he trys to cast , strangulate*
Mar 3rd 2010 5:39AM oooooooook
Mage slows, you slow him, he trys to cast strangulate (he now cant do anything) death grip and you rip the poor mage to shreds.
you seem to forget that your class can do damage aswell, and where as mages have to stop and cast to get out the big guns you only have to be near the mage.
trust me i have play'd a mage and dk in low arena and its much more stressfull as a clothy, infact if you have manged to get them to blow iceblock early then the strangualte dg ic combo will kill them
Mar 1st 2010 8:58AM i would love to see blizzard implement a fight where you have to protect hellscream.
just so i could watch him die, again,and again, and again
