can't tell if trolling....

mages have been stupid this entire xpac thanks to ice nova being so ridiculous but frostbolt being such horseshit

Frostbolt seems to be one of the mages more powerful abilities from what I've witnessed. They are a strong class for sure right now.

I enjoyed it, the combo point generation is just crazy replacing Backstab with Hemo. It will alter your gameplay but make it easier imo.

Shatter for example ? I don't recall ever being a prio target, nor dying to shatter in last patch.

And I certainly don't remember wanting to target Warlocks as Shatter last patch, and it's not like it was some ultra scrub MMR either ( 2700 )

Also melee cleaves, with a bit of kiting it was super easy to live, it was only a difficulty to get casts off, now it feels I'm in danger of dying 24/7

Yes it does feel like we are an easier target now. As Affliction placing my gate/portal in the proper spots and using soulburn/portal on cooldown seems like the only way to even deter the enemy from attacking me. The root immune for 8 seconds is such gold at times.

The best way I've been able to combat teams targeting me is Demonic Leap, "the blessing from the heavens". The only issue is Demonology is the worst spec right now and has so many bugs it's not even worth playing.

For higher MMR using Afflictions soulburn/portal at the right times may help. Also if your team has the counter spell covered I would try out the Imp as pet. He does more damage than any other pet "even more than Wrathguard for Demo by around +10%", he is out of melee so he dies less, he has "flee" just in case he gets targeted, and he has another trinket for you to use on yourself or teammates. The extra trinket may be the edge you are needing. The game seems to be allot about popping cooldown for cooldown so an extra cooldown can make a huge difference. Also keep in mind for those using Sacrificial Pact that your Imp has as much HP as a Wrathguard so your Pacts will be a good size.

The imp also has the greatest voice overs so your loneliness is over.

There are like 500 threads like this on these boards already...

People post on this forum at a speed were you will not miss anything. Allow others to post freely; it makes the forums more active which is always postive.

Keep in mind when your checking other players profiles that they always run with a healer because they gear/spec for 3s and run dps/dps/healer.

This is my take on the 3 talents just so you have another opinion.

Supremacy: This is good if you want consistant damage over time. Also for Demo Locks it provides more HP via Sacrificial Pact. It is also one less button if you don't like cluttered bars or don't care to "think" about the tier for newer Locks.

Sacrifice: This is good if you want the control of all your damage in your hands and not half with a pet. Also good if you dislike pets or your pet dies allot or is targeted by teams/CC'd by teams. Also good for extra healing if running Drain life spec. Also good if running Charred Remains Destro spec for extra damage on Choas Bolts.

Service: This will basically allow your pet damage to be double the damage output for 25 seconds in the form of two pets. So it's a great cooldown to link with your other cooldowns when bursting. It also provides a instant stun, CC, or Silence like you said. It's also good if running Demonic Servitude for the double Doomguard.

That is a breakdown from more of a BG hero perspective but hope it helps.
