i play mage warrior shaman mainly and usually have trouble actually killing people, but control is never an issue because we havent had time to get any rating yet. how do you set up kills with mage/warrior?

Leekzy thanks for this!

I'm new to mage since WoD and I keep reading how Mage has become a pile of damageless shit in PvP situations, and especially in arena's.
This guide (and discovering this forum for a start) has motivated me to delve deep into my Mage's potential :D I'm working on getting to know my class in a competetive way thanks to this guide!

Thanks a lot for this and keep it comming! :spade:

Hey np, nope I swap it around very frequently to CC etc! One of the biggest parts of being a great mage is good use of focus-swapping (or arena1,2,3, macros for spells etc).

Hi there, ty!
I recommend you to check out Trillebartoms VoD from yesterday (http://www.twitch.tv...tom/b/600893834, starts like halfway through I think) were we played WMD pretty high (think we ended on 2650 mmr/2570ish rating), sadly no mage PoV as I didn't stream but you should get some ideas! Oh and we also ran Fury, felt way better in the comp, personal preference though!

Also got a PSA: Disregard the current stat priorities in the guide, I'll update it ASAP. Also disregard CRYSTAL, Comet Storm is just better now apart from in Combat Rogue/Mage/Healer (imo!).

Quick rundown of new stat prios (IMO): Haste >= Versatility > Multistrike >= Crit > Mastery in general, but it's also comp dependant (in some setups you want more haste, in others more versa etc etc). For weapon enchant, I still run haste on both of my mages (http://eu.battle.net...onedad/advanced and http://eu.battle.net...Leekzy/advanced)

Current comp updates: Godcomp's amazing, War/Mage/Healer is good, Combat RM/X is probably our best comp, Mage/Moonkin/Priest does well, FMP is one of the better ones aswell (haven't gotten around to trying it yet though). I think Pala/Shaman Shatterplay is really good aswell, haven't tried it, MLS and MLP (the latter probably being the better one) also should play out decently well in the current meta!

Sorry for not updating, peace <3

No because the difference is when I play a comp i play it close to skill cap

if anyone needs to be banned, it's you. You do nothing but sit on AJ being a passive aggressive idiot that nobody likes, sorry you stink of washing up liquid.

Feel free to call me an idiot because I'm a hunter or some stupid ass remark but I've actually written all this down on paper

I actually made an appearance at DH2014 and I met up with people from twitch who were involved with the dota 2 / cs tournies that where there, I talked about the game from my perspective as a professional player and we actually shared a lot of opinions. All I'm saying is a lot of people will be VERY surprised about the future of this game in the esport world :)

well good guide,
apart from Deep Glyph not being mandatory, its just way to good being off GCD, especially to juke interrupts during the deep, since people have to be way faster actually react to a glyphed deep poly for example


And ^ holds true aswell people, I really really enjoy Deep glyph currently, try it out for yourselves and see how it feels!

wait is haste better or versatility? Almost none of the versatility gear has any haste on it, so it is really gearing one or the other.

how would you recommend gearing for haste? I currently have a MS setup and am going to make the switch over to haste I guess. I primary only play 2s at the moment but am looking at getting into 3s. I'm slightly confused as to what set pieces to get and such as I don't want to waste my conquest points. Ty!

So far I've been playing RMD (SUB VERSION, like real men). Been bouncing around 2300-2500; so far went with multistrike. But I'm willing to try haste over multistrike, any thoughts on that?

Hey there!

Haste is indeed superior in sub-RMD imo, just feels way better. We peaked out at 2685ish CR and 2715 MMR as sub-RMD so far, the comp is definately viable, but playing with a combat is probably +150 rating, although contracting aids this early in my life is not an option so I won't play it -_- ...

I don't use set bonuses, which might come back to bite me in the ass WHEN (not if, there's no way the current ones are going to stick) they get buffed/changed! I recommend aiming for 10%+ haste outside arenas atleast, makes the game feel really smooth with a haste buff + gear upscaling inside!
