Apr 6th 2009 1:10PM I honestly didn't break my Spellfire set all the way from 70 to 80. Mind you, I didn't start playing until after all the Sunwell stuff, but that set carried me through Northrend even doing 5-mans here and there.
Mar 11th 2009 6:46PM Fire mages and survivability do not belong in the same sentence. Unless you're mentioning how they don't have or need any. We knew what we were getting into when we specced this, and we should wear our fiery deaths with pride. ^_^
I totally agree with a death bang. Would totally make people think twice about taking out the fire mage with the full mana bar...
And mages are the best at getting away... when we can. Frost Nova -> Blink -> Invisibility anyone? ~_^
Mar 11th 2009 12:17PM I've been a fire mage since I picked up the game. In fact, I might have been a fire mage BEFORE picking it up. And I will always be a fire mage. Burnination is in my blood. ^_^
Regardless, I can't STAND what they're doing to Impact. There is nothing that makes me smile in glee more than the (happens more often than not) random stun that gives me just enough time to launch that last fireball. I consider it a proccing "oh shit!" button that happens just when I need it most... especially when my fire blast, blastwave and dragon's breath are on cooldown.
And I never liked fiery payback. If I'm below 35% health, I'm toast as it is and hitting every "oh shit!" button I've got... and trying to either stun them or knock them back. I'm not trying to pyroblast them.
And when it comes to PvP... ugh. I'm toast in like, three seconds or less anyway. What do I care that I have a faster pyroblast? I'm not going to survive the cast time anyway.
