I think mages will still have the upper hand, even with 15% magical damage reduced while in shadowform
Just a small photo of me in 702 resiliance gear, and in the combat log, says I got hit with a 8k frostfire and 2.5k ice lance, just a small part of the nukeage.
I was farming eternal fires in WG, when a mage comes out of nowhere, I get silenced, mage pops mirror image, mage pops Icy veins, mage ice blocks the dots I manage to put on it (SW:P and DP), I disperse, right when dispersion fades, I'm dead a few seconds later.
The mage repeatedly did this to me, same combo of attacks, since it takes three minutes to get back to the area, the mages CD's are back up. I do not suck at pvp, I can't even touch frost mage when it attacked me first. If I cast I'll get a 8 second silence, it will just ice block the dots off it, and I'll leave shadowform to heal, then I'm bursted down.
Anyone have any tips against frost mages? 700 resilience is all I can get atm, since I'm human I don't need a trinket.
Btw, I do not have my 5 second silence, and fear was worthless agianst it, since it either resisted it, or WOTF it.
