So clueless.

Why would anyone complain about mages with hunters and rogues in their current states? That is like complaining about spilled milk when you're in the middle of a hurricane.

You know way ahead of time when a hurricane is coming  nooone  knows when somefucking milk  is goona spill.

Omg you really ARE that stupid :(

In a thread discussing mages you complain about somebody playing hunter (why?) and then "Hunters are fine L2p, AMIRITE?".

Wtf are you thinking? Are you even thinking? Did you even read the OP? Or the thread title? Do you even know how to read?
Let me sum it up for you  maybe, and just maybe, you get a clue:

"Mages do retarded amount of burst!"
"LOLOLOL hunter lolo!!11oneone, lolol eu"

Do you see any connection between the topic at hand and your posts? Because i sure can't.

Well... Let's use our brains for a moment. Not sure if you do that over there where you are from.

Someone says X class does too much dmg and has too much utility. What is "too much dmg". Well, the only way to figure that out is by comparing it to the damage and utility of other classes. So someone complaining about mages when hunters are just a 10x superior version of the mage class in every way shape and form is just blatantly moronic. So when someone brings up mages, naturally I can bring up another ranged dps class in the same game that fills the same role and compare the two.

Do you see the connection now? Or has evolution been that cruel to your place of the world?

Check and mate.

Hit the showers greaseball.

#3883665 Cloak and Dagger no longer works during Shadow Dance

Posted flay117 on 03 May 2013 - 06:34 AM

Feels like most people here are just saying "GOOD CHANGE CAUUZ I WILL HAVE MORE RATINGS"

I don't play a rogue but I think this might be a little too much. Maybe they should change it so that you get one charge of CnD when you dance, so you can actually swap properly, but not bounce around the map, which seems what most people are whining about, which doesnt really makes sense. If a rogue decides to spend his offensive cooldown and all his energy to peel, he should be able to peel quite good, like most classes can without using any cds at all.

You know if you used to play in BC, ShS used to do this and I can actually see it coming back to the game with how many roots and snares there is.

Afaik it wasn't breaking roots. Instead you could use it while rooted and stay rooted after you stepped.

#3879293 Resetting AJ Ladders

Posted KPul on 23 April 2013 - 09:09 PM

I miss the days of being able to go on AJ and look at player ratings and see who, globally, the top players of each class were.  I know there is a bunch of exploitation on both sides of the big pond, but it would be nice if the moderators or whoever edits the site took the time to clear the ladders to make them more current.  There have been teams lingering on the AJ ladder since season 11.

#3875543 Nóliferqts MoP Frost Mage Guide for 5.2.

Posted noliferqtxd on 15 April 2013 - 10:18 AM

Nóliferqt. Frost Mage Guide for 5.2 MoP

Hello, I have been getting huge amount of ingame whispers to make a guide, I do not see myself as a top player I just want to give something back to the community. This might only be helpful for a few people but I remember when I just started doing pvp and being hungry for info/guides etc. and how thankful I was for decent-top players writing informative guides so here goes.


For the first tier I play PoM against every comp, even after the nerf in 5.2 to PoM + RoF it is still really useful, and in my opinion better than Blazing Speed against most setups. I still play it with RoF because of Alter time, for the PoM + Alter time - Polymorph on the healer - Alter time back - and RoF dps, Stampede or w/e. Even against Thugcleaves, PHD's, and other melee cleaves that train me I play PoM because you can get some momentum by yourself by getting the instant cc on the healer and RoF'ing yourself.

Second tier: Flameglow. I use it against almost every team, it makes you almost unkillable against UA Warlocks and Boomkins and it's way better than Ice Barrier just because alot of classes can dispell it and people do it so it most of the time just gets wasted. If you play with a Resto Druid or a Disc Priest Ice Barrier is definetly an option because of all the HoTs/Grace stacks it makes it rather hard to dispel it.

Third tier: Ring of Frost, still an amazing ability together with PoM even after the nerf. Frostjaw is pretty good too, though I have not played with it I have faced Mages who did and done well with it.

Fourth tier: Cold Snap is an obvious choice here, heals you for 30 % of your hp can be used in any cc, stun and even inside your current block. And resets CD of CoC, Frost Nova, and Ice Block.

Fifth tier: Most important and most controversial tier, Nether Tempest or Frost bomb? I take Nether tempest for most comps I believe it's a must-have in comps like MLS and Boomkin Mage Disc where you try to do as much dmg as possible, I play it every game as RMP/Shatreeplay except against PHD's/ KFC's/other heavy melee comps that train my Priest  I play Frost Bomb just because if you're left alone with Frost Bomb you can easily 100-0 a target with a blanket CS on the healer. The general way you wanna do it with Frost Bomb is to Polymorph a target to force a dispel and then Frost Bomb your kill target and go for burst without them having a dispel and allowing you to time a Frostbolt + Ice Lance shatter as the Frost Bomb explodes.

Sixth tier: Incanter's Ward is the obvious choice for PvP. I see alot of Mages completely waste this talent and just pop it randomly as if it was just an absorb.  But I don't think people fully utilize this ability, it's a 30 % dmg buff that you can get very easily every time you want to swap. It's a MASSIVE damage buff and the passive of this ability is ridiculous aswell 6 % passive dmg increase + 65 % mana regen increase when it's not on cooldown + when it gets broken you get 18 % of your mana. I usually pop this before I do a hard as RMP or any comp really. I use it if there is alot of people bunched up and I can Frozen Orb them all. Remember, MoP playstyle is all about doing the most dmg, the more dmg you can pump out as a Mage the more succesful you are going to be, I can guarentee you that. So utilizing your spells the best you can, will increase your dmg and you will do way better in arena.


I play with Glyph of Ice Lance. Glyph of Polymorph. Glyph of Armors.
I play without Glyph of Ice Lance as RMP I usually play Glyph of Evocation instead. I would like to point out Glyph of Remove Curse, I don't see alot of Mage's using this glyph. It's absolutely insane against Warlock teams, it gives you a 10 % dmg buff for 10 seconds every time you dispell a curse, so basicly against a Warlock team you could in theory have 100 % uptime on this buff since your Decurse is only on a 8 sec CD and the Buff lasts for 10 secs.

My Macros

Counterspell Arena 1-2-3

I think CS 1-3 is a must-have as a Mage, you can CS Mage openers with it out of Invis. You can CS Night Elf healers out of Shadowmeld when they are in high pressure situations and just need to get a Shadowmeld heal off and this can easily win you games. + Counterspelling crucial CC's or high burst casts without having to waste time swapping your Focus or Target.

/cast [target=arena1] Counterspell
/cast [target=arena2] Counterspell
/cast [target=arena3] Counterspell

Decurse macros

Just like you expect your healer to dispel your CC quickly when you are going for kills, the same goes for your healer/partner when they are in a high pressure situation or going for kills and they get hexed it can easily lose you games if you are too slow with decursing your partners. And spam decursing yourself from Curse of Agony's and Doom's when you've got spare globals helps your healer out a ton!

/cast [target=nóliferqt] remove curse

Target and Focus Arena 1-2-3

Target and Focus Arena 1-2-3 is a must-have especially as a Mage as you'll be having to swap focus/target alot when you're going for double CC and depending on if you're going  offensive or defensive you'll be swapping focus between healer and the dps for spam Polymorphs or Counterspelling the healer.

/target arena1
/target arena2
/target arena3   

/focus arena1
/focus arena2
/focus arena3

Frostbolt macro with pet attack

/cast frostbolt

Focus Polymorph macro with petpassive

/cast [target=focus] Polymorph
Stopcasting Focus CS Macro.
/cast [target=focus] Counterspell

/cast Counterspell

/cast [target=focus] Deep Freeze

/cast [nopet] summon Water Elemental

Focus spellsteal and /cancelaura Pyroblast

/cast [target=focus] Spellsteal
/cancelaura Pyroblast!

Spellsteal with cancelaura Pyroblast

/Cast Spellsteal
/cancelaura Pyroblast!

Comps that you can play as a Mage and how I think they should be played

UA Lock, Frost Mage, Resto Shaman, as MLS I like to go full intellect and just spam damage, with instant CC on healers and coordinating Deep Freeze> into Fears with my Warlock. I rarely ever go for Polymorphs I just spam dmg, deep into fear and a Counterspell out of it.

Boomkin Mage Disc, this comp is a healer killer generally you want to PvE and just wait for Solar Beam and Frozen Orb and cyclone one dps fear the other and deep beam the healer with a RoF around and Frozen orb and just pump out as much dmg as you can. This comp struggles against Resto Druid teams though, but I found that you can easily kill resto druids with this comp if you make a good deep beam swap with no hots they can easily die through Barkskin.

Shatreeplay/Spriest Mage Resto Druid/Resto Shaman, this comp is the best Mage comp at the moment. You can pretty much win every team as Shatreeplay you generally want to wait for your priest to have 3 orbs and a silence and you Deep Freeze Frozen Orb a target with 3x orbs and silence the healer with a Cyclone or a fear on the third. Against most Resto Shaman teams you want to make swaps to the Shaman the same way, even if they have got trinket and cooldowns they can die anyway. Deeping with 3 orbs and a Frozen Orb they'll have to trinket, you can silence of that into a dr'ed counterspell and kill them in it.

Elemental Shaman Mage Disc, one of my favourite comps this expansion the amount of burst this comp has got is absolutely insane. You can pretty much 100-0 a target in a single Deep Freeze with a blanket or NS hex on the healer, if you clean the target beforehand. If you can sync up damage with your Elemental Shaman this comp can win anything. Even though your Elemental Shaman doesnt have that many defensives and is very trainable it leaves you (the Mage) alone to do whatever you want, you can setup double CC by yourself and allowing your Elemental Shaman to cast a bit can easily get you kills in Deep Freezes.

For gemming and gearing, here is a link to my armory:

I would have explained how I use every ability but I simply don't have the time at the moment. If I do make another guide later on, I will include that for sure. But if you would like to know, you should head over to Xandyn's Cataclysm guide it's outdated for most spells but I think it's an amazing guide even though it's from Cataclysm, you can learn a bunch about how to use your spells the correct way. As I said I don't see myself as a top Mage and I'm just doing this to give something back and help some people that aren't sure which way to go as far as talents, glyphs and general playstyles as some comps.
