    This question depends on what you're referring to. If your combining both PvE and PvP then MAges/DK's are both on par with each other in terms of "FotM" or I guess in this case it would be Flavor of Cataclysm.

    After that it varies between PvE and PvP. Most other class are Stong in one, and relatively weak in the other (As always, there are exceptions)

    Gotta admit its nice though to not see paladin up there.

    It feels like everyone thinks paladins are favoured, sometimes.

    You don't vote Mage then I don't take you seriously.

    Want to complain about Ignite Munching? Come over here and we can talk about Trap Resists w/my hunter.

    Favouring in terms of what, exactly. Most work put into the class? Well, usually paladins. That whole class has been done and redone like 4 times now. Understandable, the paladin is the most populous (and perhaps popular?) class.

    Favouring in terms of nerfs? I keep seeing druids getting slammed. I don't play one, but patch notes wise from just glancing over, seems like theres always a block of text under their heading.

    Favouring in terms of ignoring balance? I guess frost mages, I liked that one post by, I think it was Bashiok, where he said, "frost mages ares fine, at really high skill levels they practically never beat other players." essentially saying "they're not OP, everyone everywhere just sucks at WoW."
    It was one of my favourites.

    INFRACTED! For uhm... Idk, I'll read the ToS later, I'm sure I'll find something in there I can stretch to cover whatever it is I don't like about you.

    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.
    Your a mage right?

    Mages have been OP in pvp and Top Tier DPS for as long as I can remember. But then again, the basically should be, they are mages.

    The portals are back dude.
    This just shows how ignorant some people are. I even saw a druid from one of my servers top guilds ask for a portal to Orgrimmar, right beside the horde inn in Dalaran. So few people actually know what's going on in this game, it's frightening.

    And the reason why mages haven't had so many tweaks in the latest patches is because Blizzard likes where they are right now. Not that they "favor" mages. mages have always been about CC and control, and always will be. And this game aint balanced around your 1v1 duels - It's balanced around high end arena and RBG and ofc endgame raiding tiers.

    Yes, I'm a mage - No, I don't pvp - So bugger off with your shit.

    Yea totally agree, idk how DK's can complain so much. Totally OP at the start, nerfed back to the rest of the field but still given an abundance of abilities like stun removal and brez. DK's get very well looked after.

    Mages on one hand still involve some skill to play in pvp,on other hand meleers require 0 skill,i play both meleer and range caster on 85,and trust me,playing my enhc shaman is like playing a tetris after destro lock and all those shits.True aff spec is way op and after dks i would prolyl vote for wlock,cause in 3s comps like aff/sub/restoshaman ae way op and ahead of other comps of these classes(Destro cant even get over 2200 properly).I dont even gonna mention how easy is to master aff these days.After the patch ferals will win this title.I rly dont know why they are buffing this insane spec,which was on pair with warrs at start and then gain slight nerf.Now they are buffing them for no reason.....They are doing better then fine in arena and pvp.

    Lolwut?

    Druids are on the bottom rung of tank power at the moment, imo. Still viable, for sure, but still coming in last.

    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.
    Really? Are you for real? It's called under-exaggerating. I was making a point, I doubt he's done any serious PvP at all. Use your brain.

    So many mages in denial.

    Massively high DPS
    Insane burst
    Almost total control
    Huge defensive cooldowns (show me another class that has a shield, multiple snare's, "proper" cc AND an escape/get out of range move)

    The only thing you lack is decent self healing but i'm sure blizzard will get to that shortly. You're forking insanely OP.

    I voted Mage because they are a class that my class I'm incapable of beating 1v1 in pvp (when I was I'm the low 1900s, so I'm not completely terrible), and has 90% of their damage from one ability in pve while being extremely competitive on meters.
    u mentioned 1v1 pvp and also noted u were in the low 1900s, so sorry to burst ur bubble but you are completely terrible...

    Stop whining about 1v1 situations. Get yourself a dispel and derp on frost mages like good little melee.

    Not saying that mages got a bit too much buff, but saying all mages got favored is not true. Arcane mages were in a poor spot with release, only since patch they're back up with the top DPS, so it's not favour but compensation (maybe a tad over-) for arcane mages.
