So mage / rogue is the only class I have never leveled to max so don't really have any insight to the end game. I see you guys doing just fine in WoL but routinely get in these LFR's, 5 mans and H Scenarios with mages doing pure shit numbers for their gear level (ie ilvl 480+ mages doing 50-60k). Are mages that massively gear dependent to do great numbers or is the community just flooded with unexperienced alts? I know melee classes are really weapon dependent and was just wondering if mages really needed great gear to do respectable dps.
And no, my 10 man currently working through HM's has 0 mages so I have no grounds to base how decently geared mages do in a real raiding environment.
