Yes mage this patch has room for outplaying. As in fishing for a pummel with frostbolt then landind full sheep. So you are faced with the wonderful dilemma of either letting him do full damage or get a full sheep.
Let me tell you about mages when you get full gear - you are the ONLY class that can solo ANYTHING every 30 seconds. Every deep with 5 icicles is a potential kill on ANYTHING, any healer, any dps or guaranteed defensive cooldowns. No other spec can do that every 30 seconds.
Mages are wotlkish, yes, but they are closer to wotlk elementals than wotlk mages. It's just sad how low mage skillcap became this expansion.
Ah, fair enough! Don't know what to think about that really, I think I enjoy the whole "underdog"-aspect a bit too, like say at the moment a lot of mages are complaining about the class and the damage we deal, which for me makes it more "challenging" (just assuming that the skill cap works differently now from e.g. WotLK etc) and rewarding to play! Hope it keeps up though, I don't mind people being forced into a "harder" playstyle if the game gets a bit burstier than it is atm (you can CC a healer for like 25~ seconds and yet not be able to finish of a DPS etc) where you get more punished (but not instantly lose like I felt you did in the last few patches!) for actaully making mistakes.
