I'm just curious, so I have to ask: how are you people still playing this shit? No seriously, years ago when I quit mages were OP to hell. Every time I log here I see threads about how op they (and usually ferals, but it's not the discussion here) still are. So Blizzard doesn't do anything for literary YEARS now. And you people keep eating this. Why do you hate yourself so much?
Infracted. Post constructively and don't troll

i have been waiting and wondering when this thread was going to show up lol. On its own its not game breaking but seeing as how mages have gotten along this season just fine with lance spam and frostbombs and giving them another way to deal good damage at the sacrifice of nothing is kind of crazy. If you want mages to cast more, sure buff frostbolt but y not nerf instants a little. Watching venruki stream rmp on 5.2 ptr and all i can do is shake my head. If your not running rmp good luck
what is the verdict on blazing speed vs blink.

Do no harm, but take no shit.
mages whine so hard when they get a nerf so they revert it cos ghostcrawler plays a mage so thats why mages are never fucking nerfed mages have no grounds to whine and bitch when they ahve been gods of PVP and cc for years. tbh they should bring back cast times to casters thats why you are called A CASTER yet most of em have so many instant spells they dnt cast shit
they needed this change to they actually have to cast again
because its weak as hell, even with the stacking debuff it gives on live, please pay attention.
Tranq shot goes up, frost mage goes down. You can't explain that! I mean, I'm only in the 85-89 bracket right now, but I've yet to have a problem with frost mages on my MM hunter primarily because of tranq shot and silencing shot, neither of which are spec-limited. I could probably do it without silencing shot as well.
Of course, on most of my other characters, they're ridiculous, but on the hunter, it's no real problem. Being able to deterrence frost bombs and bolts also stops a helluva lot of hassle for both me and any healers that happen to be around. When they block, just nuke the hell out of the elemental until they're out of the block. Even if you don't kill it, at least you're not wasting shots on an immune target.

Those numbers mean absolutely nothing given no context.
Be clinical about this - I now may be duped into casting frostbolt, and all my opponents know this. Therefore, my prediction is that a lot more of us will be trying to juke cast again (remember those days?) to insure we're not spell locked (no competent frost mage is going to risk being locked out of his spells just because they buff one element of our toolkit) while attempting to cast a frostbolt.
I've watched a few mages' streams on the PTR and I still see huge amounts of pressure on mages in arenas (i.e. contrary to popular belief, frostbolt spam wasn't as prevalent as most people are claiming).
Again, the sky is not falling...
It's being fixed, this topic is irrelevant.
Do no harm, but take no shit.
my main is was mage.. makes me sick to see baddies being carried by tempest procs. not even fun to play with thats why i dont play the toon this xpac.
all tha said... hunters should scare you all more. what a joke class that is right now.
