Hey guys,

I'm just coming back to PVPing, I use to play a Rogue and now I've swapped to my mage.

My one question is, how am I suppose to survive or do anything in arena now as a mage...? I just played a 2's with a holy pally and a feral/hunter killed me in under 2 seconds, 120k crit from ferocious bite.

not sure what your looking for cone of cold is pretty dumb, and pet freeze buys u at least 1 global also lining around a pillar and ROF urself is good, or your partner can peel the feral and u can deep ring feral if ur killing hunter.. there are alot of options. also spell stealing rejuvs is nice. and u can prob take ice barrier vs hunter feral since hunter dispel costs so much now.

I've literally seen 0 healer/mage comps in 2's. Only comp viable for mage in 2's is mage/rogue.

Rogue can do massive peels and there you go, win the game

Not sure what you would consider "viable" but i've been playing no voice mage/feral around 2100 mmr in 2s and doing fine. I've seen people play mage/healer, mage/lock, and mage/boomkin as well. i'm guessing you could make mage/ret work as well.

Edit: In response to the original question, spellsteal glyph can be very helpful for added extra survival in 2s, I generally will always use it if there is an opponent with buffs to steal. 4% hp per steal is significant.

Specifically against feral/hunter you have to get the pressure and control out very fast. Depending what class you are playing with, you want to try to pull the hunter out of stealth with blizzard/pet nova and get the momentum with a strong opener. Game will be very fast either way
