In Topic: How many people are unsubbing if the mage buffs go through?

13 January 2015 - 11:17 AM

Mages don't need this buff, even though I have been missing the unbreakable deep freeze since WoD started. Nobody agrees with this change with the current damage of ice nova. Godcomp will get out of control, and RMD will probably be using deep on openers. Two ice nova crits is a guaranteed big cooldown/trinket.

Mages are not in a bad spot as such, and as it has been said above, very limited to a few select setups.
The current meta in mage gameplay on higher ratings revolve around spamming poly, ring and cleverly avoiding lockouts when you have 2 ice novas+frozen orb. Frostbolt is only used as a filler for damage, but it merely tickles the opponent. Kiting and positioning seems more important now from my point of view, as it generally means you can survive for a lot longer against certain setups like Ret/Hunt/X -- Feral/Hunt/X.

Double ice nova into a well-placed crystal is still very deadly - overpowered some would argue - but that is all the burst we are currently capable of. It has been suggested to move some of the damage from ice nova into ice lance/frostbolt to make the good old shatter combo viable again.

I have for the first season ever started playing alts from the get-go, because I wasn't really intrigued by the current mage gameplay.

Penance, PW: Shield every 30 seconds (absorbing alot more than guard), vanish (with decoy), psychic scream, Psyfiend (ever more fear) and Power Infusion. The heals themselves are powerful as fuck, and if you can't burst a priest down within the first 5-8 seconds of the Arena, he's likely to never go below 50%.

Lets just pretend I didn't read about half of that, it's very biased and very wrong - and we're cool! :D

Im interested in what you suggest for gear, rotation, enchants, 2h or 2x 1h.

In Topic: incanter's flow or Mirror Image

01 January 2015 - 11:15 AM

I don't feel like trackng incanter's is the main problem, but the fact that it is much less "on demand" when you actually need it.

Scenario: You have all cooldowns ready, enemy healer gets feared into awkward position. Would you prolong your burst for ~3 seconds to get a slightly bigger hit, or would you rather just pop your mirrors which only have to hit the target approx. 1 time to make up for that exact dps loss?

In Topic: are priest stuck having to play with rets/hunters?

Rmp/fmp/thug/ boomkin+rogue .. Priest is by no means the "worst" healer (atleast not in the eu meta), but they do require a bit more attention and set-up to perform well.
