I ripped my response to another thread and made it it's own thread, so the other thread doesn't get set off track.

It's disappointing -- I think Blizzard designed the -2 Blink CD to counter Warrior's Intercept timer.  I just think they weren't expecting competitive Arena games to be so much about maintaining mana, making Blink an incredibly unattractive spell to use.  I think it's poor design that most Mages choose 3/2 instead of full 5.  I think the 4/5 bonus should be a serious upgrade over an additional 35 resilience.

Some ideas:
-2 seconds from Frost Nova CD
-0.5 seconds from Fire Blast CD
-1 second from Cone of Cold CD
-1 second from Counterspell CD
-0.2 seconds from Polymorph
Increased range to Polymorph
10% chance that Poly won't be dispelled
5% Stun Resistance
5% Snare Resistance
25-40% mana cost reduction to Blink (I love this one.)
+Armor (this would be a great way to fulfill the design theory they had in mind for Mages when they made the Season 2 original stat breakdown, and a creative alternative to massing two season's two-piece resilience bonuses.)

What do you guys think?  What ideas do you have?

Something like Spellsurge as a 4pt bonus would be incredible.

Not kidding.

Reduced CD or increased lockout time on CS would be nice.

Most classes have lackluster 4 pc bonuses.

Warrior's is decent.
Druid's is decent.

I miss anything?

Reduces the casting time of your polymorph ability by 0.2 sec.
Or Gives you a 50% chance to ignore interruptions while casting Polymorph (damage and interupts)

I'd love +2sec on counterspell. Or Fireblast now silences the target for 0.5sec.
