Hey!
Running Mage/Disc as priest in 2v2. we reached 1500, but have some problems with finishing a match. We know how to proper cc, and stuff (deep poly/fear silence, RoF against ferals, fake casts, inq glyph to death poly/trap/para, MD to dispel clones). We achieved the basics of this comp, but need some advanced tips, like how to beat a rdruid/enhance shammy. My mage fails sometimes to landing ccs etc.
Have any tips to improve our playstyle in 2v2?
Is it viable to run Dominate Mind in 2s against healer/warrior comp to dodge poly interrupt?

Hi,

The cc rotation should be deep then poly, if the dps kicks the poly then cast frostjaw/ring if it also fails then you can fear the healer, so when you mage deeps him, you should run into the healer to fear when he can not cc him.

If you say you are in 1500cr you should have no problem to land a poly without deep first, so that gives you an extra.

If your team have no pressure, you can try to sheep the dps 1st and cast the resheep because it gonna be trinketed/dispeled and when you are ready to start your pressure insta deep the healer (when the dps is still in poly so he can not do anything) and poly him.

I dont think Dominate Mind is better than fear, to dodge poly interrup you should pet nova the warrior, deep the healer and poly him, also try to insta dispel the poly if warrior reflecs it.

And never use reflec shield glyph if you go with a mage or hunter.

it really depends what kinda comp you facing. Quite frankly the real problem in 2s as priest mage is a bad mental condition most of oppenents will be affected by. it's called Tryharderism. Typical example, despite the 1500 mmr, is the hunter who disingages and runs behind the pillar like a gayass (despite confortably sitting at 100% hp with all cds at disposal) as soon as his healer gets a poly or fear.they defo needs to remove maps like Dalaran Sewers. Just make Nagrand variations with different themes, the rest is bullshit plain and simple.

The dream would be having mana burn back as priest.. but blizzard is planning to make disc even less competitive on next xpac so yeah ...

If the hunter runs into the pillar every time you get a poly try to get a better positioning and/or get procs and those "mini-icelances" casting frostnovas to the pet or to the healer instead of repoly. Its the only thing you can do. And when he gets out poly him in order to make some time until DRs reset.

Dude, im just trying to help, i think you just complain about balance when someone ask for help. How can you help talking about balance? Does the game will be better because you say hunter have so much mobility? Everybody know you are rigth, but, is that the answer that this guy is looking for?
