That itemization (1000 haste mage) will be horrible when the changes goes through. What are you even complaining about?
I'm jelaous because as a priest I have 2398472938 stats I want while keeping 99999 resilience, whereas a mage can go 1000 haste to just turret frostbolts.
But hey, I got used to that.
And then you get Frozen Core boost? Now apart from close to uninterruptible CC, you'll get uninterruptible damage. Cool
I just see NO reason to buff mages.
If you feel underpowered, I don't want to be around the day when you'd consider yourself balanced.
With shatter and fingers of frost, mages can IGNORE a stat called crit. Already in TBC, they were sitting at a value close to being negated by resilience. But they still crit a lot thanks to talents.
Now, you're being given Haste like boost which will - as people already suggest - make you drop haste because you don't need that absurd amount anymore.
What will you stack into oblivion this time, 4k spellpower ?
