My Mage is level 25 with full enchanted heirlooms. I've noticed that i take a whole lot of damage compared to my other alts.
I tried to solo the big yeti in Hillsbrad Foothills. Yetimus the Yeti Lord. http://www.wowhead.com/npc=47484/yetimus-the-yeti-lord which i've had no problem doing on all of my other alts but i keep dying as a frost mage. i can't seem to get enough distance even with blink and 2x frost novas.
My question is: Are mages not a very good solo class? i main a Shadow Priest and a warlock and i am used to soloing pretty much everything while leveling and at level cap. This has put me off leveling quite a bit. Does it get better? Will my mage always be as squishy and will i have to forget soloing elite mobs and rares later?
