    Spellsteal will cost 7k mana. Most classes have tons of garbage buffs that get stolen before the one that you actually want to dispel.

    Get Challenger and we'll talk.
    GOD you are the most hilarious person ever. I hope your trolling
    otherwise its obvious your a mage and the fact that you said "Get Challenger and we'll talk." is so freaking funny. Challenger is practically given out for free for participating in arena. Dont act like its an actual achievement.

    Mages? I can think of several classes that just chew up mages without issue, warlocks being a prime example.

    If anything, I'd say DK's. Seriously what were Blizzard thinking letting DK's just run into arena and hit howling blast 30 times without a care in the world; full well knowing they're gonna mess something up.
    Oh also, and their BS self healing.

    warrior of course.

    if you take into consideration where teh warrior was before cata and where teh mage was before cata.... the warrior got buffed SUBSTANTIALLY MORE than the mage did, in comparison, after cata came out with all the changes.

    warriors went from being shitty to awesome
    mages went from meh to meh. Ya mage dps is good.. buts its a pure dps.. its always been good..

    Frost DK or Warriors., mages were balanced since people got resil in December. This game isn't a 1v1 game.

    Really? It was fun 500 years ago in threads where it actually made sense.

    OT: Mages by far. Not just for Cataclysm tho, more like all expansions.

If you can't beat a frost mage, you need to reroll or consider playing something like Hello Kitty Island Adventure.
    Why would I need to beat a frost mage if I'm playing a frost mage?
    Actually, Mr. Lennon, I CAN imagine a world with no hatred, religion, war, or violence.
    I can also imagine attacking such a world, because they would never see it coming.

    I'am very serious, because when I see a fire mage I will at least make an attempt to win. When I see frost, I just crawl up into a ball and die.

    I'm sure mage will win the poll. But, that's because 70% of people on MMO-champion are band-wagon jumpers and 10% are utterly ignorant. It's a shame that the 70% of sheep often listen to the 10% that are ignorant.
    ^ someone rolls a mage and is angry that he has no skill.

    besides us hitting for random numbers unless were in full 359 gear..... the shit goes on and on if you play a pally you should know how random it is yourself. my dps varies from 4k-13k that shit is to unreliable. and yes i am hit and expertise cap and yes i do have a fair rotation.
    If you're relying on procs to go from 4k to 14k you're terrible...
    Let's look at the test results. You are a horrible person. It says right here, you're a horrible person. We weren't even testing that. Don't let the horrible person thing get you down though. Science justified your parents choice to abandon you.

    Warriors have definitely been the class that has been the best off in terms of balance throughout WoWs history. HELL EVEN TOM CRUISE THINKS WARRIORS ARE AMAZING http://warcraftmovies.com/movieview.php?id=142359

    Does this really even have to be talked about? Just look around on some of the class forums over the last couple of months. It's been talked about consistently throughout Cata thus far.
