definitely the wrong change for mages lol, undos the 5.2 buff to frostbolt to make it somewhat worth casting, and doesn't address the instants and frost bomb globaling people. rofl.

They should be making frostbolt MORE worthwhile to cast, wtf.


I thought Holinka watched Reckful, does he not see what Mitchjones does?
Bye again! This game isn't fun when you don't know anyone else that still plays.

Holinka's response to watching Mitchjones was "It seems like mage damage is fine, we just need to nerf yelling at the top of your lungs in skype"

I read somewhere frost bomb will be doing either 30% or 40% less damage. Can't confirm if it's true though. (If I remember correctly it was a Holinka tweet.)

holinka just cant realise its the incanter's ward that makes all mage's dmg to go nuts.Bomb does like 60k-70k if the target is novad , its also 4 secs b4 it detonates , its completely balanced to me.If they just nerf incanter's ward to 10% dmg it will be fine tbh.

incanters ward is absolutely not the problem, incanters just adds to the problem.  Don't need incanters up to global someone at all.

incanter's ward can be dispeled anyway...I mean unless a mage is playing with a Rdruid/disc priest yeah it's hard to remove incanter's do you remember when you could spell steal incanter's ward & stack the 30% damage bonus to 60% and just have a field day?

If you're going to nerf mage damage you don't nerf frosbolt lol. You nerf incanter's CD or spell power % / proc trinket (mainly relic of yulon). The only real ridiculous damage that comes from mages is because of incanters, proc trinkets, prey on the weak, and tricks of the trade.

Using Mitchjones playing with Reckful is a terrible example as well. I'm pretty sure Mitchjones is stacking full int, playing with NO PvP trinket, and spends 90% of the game next to a pillar WITH blazing speed. Not to mention if he's playing with Reckful (no offense) they are probably playing against really low rated teams who do nothing but look at health bars the entire game instead of actual buffs/posiitioning.

Next time one of you dies or takes an unreasable amount of damage unnexpectedly (mainly from rogue/mage/hunter), please take a moment to look at the buffs of the person who did it. I promise 99% of the time it happens you'll see some random ass godly PvE trinket up, or incanters stacked with on use/proc trinket.

Shouldn't be worrying about classes' damage in PVP until using PvE gear isn't viable in arena anymore.
If nlggaz hate then let them hate and watch the rating pile up.
