Personally i feel that blizzard has sucked away the fun and skill that frost has always been known for.

I as a mage am not complaing that we r gimp nerfed or any other word that would be used to describe a holy priest or fury warior in arena.

I am just bored and mad that my beloved class is now almost miserable to play because i mindlessly bash ice lance...

thx blizz for once again ruining a great class.

Yes I agree, that's why I've not been on my mage ever since 4.0.1 was released.

However, things will most likely get interesting @ 85lvl again. Cba to even cry over this shit patch. In its current state this game in unplayable, or atleast it's not fun for me.

You took words from my mouth. Dueling pallies is unbelieveable shit right now. You might have chance if you get lucky with FoF and they have no LOS possibility.

If you wan't try something extreme, find a protri paladin who has frost res gear(400+). Now that's interesting.
9 DF resists
17 Frostbolts
14 Lances
He fucking stood still, killed my pet as I nuked him with everything I got. Couldn't drop him below 80%.

uhhh no


Actually in only 380 frost resist and 1650 resil, I can tank a frost mage in full wrathful + pve trinkets while killing his pet twice and then killing him. Dueling is balanced lul

Just shows blizzard still doesn't understand alot about what players want concerning pvp playstyle.
Blizzard wanted to recreate the fun mechanic of shatter combos in pve, but they butchered the mechanic for pvp to do it...gg

pre-4.0, good warriors that gemmed full stamina and used the tanking absorb trinket destroyed Mages in duels, that doesn't mean 'warriors own Mages', it just means that if you cheese it up with gear tailor made for dueling frost mages you can win...

Well I resist about 50% of deep freezes and novas in frost resist gear, and I don't think it's coming from anything else :)

The OP said frost mages are OP to the point of boredom. Well if something can beat them, then they're not that OP are they?
