So fire was op as and got nerfed, now you look at epeen and worldoflogs (i.e. tsulong and lei shi logs) and u see arcane mages topping (some) charts. Do arcane mages need to a nerf now too?
6 stack camping needs to be killed, yes.
Topping some charts doesn't necessitate nerfing. If something is consistently beating all the other specs across all the encounters, then yes. However, 6-charge camping isn't something they intended and they are going to try to fix it.

playing a hybrid should mean that you're able to perform Healing/tanking/dps according to the situation, while being competetive in those situation.
Why should someone see other people with same skill and gear lvl always be above them in dmg just because they are "pure"?
You get to do dmg in 3 different specs, with 3 different rotations, play style and whatnot. paladins and priests only got 1 actualy dps spec. Which means once we get tired playing our dps spec, but still want to play the class, we'll just be screwed.
Pures get several options for dps specs.
Now, i know that you're fucked if you want to try and heal/tank but cba to lvl a new character, but we're fucked aswell if we want a new play style.
When I look at Raidbots the top should be Hunter, Mage, Warlock, Rogue (not in this order).
How much stronger is 6stack camping with scorch comparatively to resetting with ABarrage? Any input on this? I'm kind of late to the party.
No mage spec is so lacking in DPS that you'd do better to reroll and start gearing up again from the start, even if druids or any other hybrid class are inching above you, please stop with the hyperbole.
and this is why I can never PvE... why... WHY WOULD YOU EVER WANT A NERF WHEN A CERTAIN CLASS DOES MORE DAMAGE????? The goal is to kill the boss correct? Then why would you have to put on your elitest pants and demand a nerf when it's better that mages do more damage so that the encounters are over quicker... I just don't understand the logic... If you're going to be an elitest in WoW... then PvP, because PvE is no sign of skill.
Most likely the wisest Enhancement Shaman.
I like how mages are no longer "easy" to play good.
I mean.. I'm very glad.
my only concern is that someone at blizzard seriously needs to PLAY a mage right, and maybe they will fix something.. like their calculator.
Arcane doesn't need a nerf, 6 charge camping needs a nerf, which it is getting.
