Thread is here. Agree with me or don't agree with me, I just gave up because calling out Lhivera in the middle of the official forums is a minefield.I have about three years of experience in a server-first raiding guild, raiding 40- and 25-man content 4-5 nights a week, 3-4 hours a night. In fact, the reason I largely stopped raiding was that Frost scaled too poorly to remain viable once we reached Sunwell. It's been a major focus of my feedback in the years since to see that flaw in the game's design corrected, and I'm very pleased that the developers ultimately came around to that point of view as well and have been working to improve the situation.
I'm sure some will argue that experience doesn't count unless it happened recently, but I dismiss this argument with prejudice. Raid mechanics haven't really changed all that much over the years, and if you can't infer from past experience how a spec and abilities will work in new encounters, that's a problem with your ability to draw inferences; not a problem for me.
Very Understandable, I was looking it and over and was getting very concerned, that someone with an MVP title that holds sway in the community, doesn't play a mage in current content or in the last few XPACs. It seems she is basing all her information on assumptions to facilitate her own ideas and thoughts on the specs. Everything about mages has changed since vanilla and the fight mechanics are different and such to influence different ways to play a mage in different specs.
I was thinking about it, I didn't want to look like I was spamming the forums or have tons of trolls from other classes, hijacking my thread.
