But, they arent the strongest in both. Yeye I hear the whole forum screaming: Mages are imba they blow u up in liek 2seconds lulz. But once you've really played a pvp mage, you know that just isn't true.
    Nah mages can't blow you up in 2 seconds, but they can make you unable to do anything for a few seconds while they eat you around 50+% HP. And after you can start doing something they have shield up and even if you destroy it, you get frozen again. And ofc more you attack, more you are slowed. So as MM hunter if I start on frost mage and he is busy or running away I mostly have chances to kill him, if he gets on me I'm usualy toast. They have too much slowing and escape mechanisms. That needs to be nerfed. Damage is pretty ok, maybe 5% nerf on some stuff but not too much.
    Arcane should be nerfed around 10-15%.

My average ilvl is 361, his was 363. Not so much difference but big difference in DPS. One button roflstomp DPS in PvE and 4 buttons frost specc in PvP pwning almost everyone on 1v1. I lvled mage up to 85, then I bought crafted blue pvp gear and I was pwning ppl with shitty gear with around 400-500 resilence while others had 2k+.
    Mage is OP no matter what ppl say. Everyone who play mage will say they aren't but rest will mostly agree with me.
    It's not one button! It's only 1 button 90% of the time! There's like 3 whole OTHER BUTTONS we have to press to dps so STFU you clearly don't know what you're talking about.

    I mean seriously - did you honestly think Mage would be the overwhelmingly dominant answer.

    Mages, and mages, and oh wait more Mages.

    I've seen maybe two minor nerfs that don't really affect anything. Then a billion buffs.

    Those billion buffs were totally warrented! We spent years as a water boy, the fact we can now destroy everything by randomly mashing the same key is completely ok.

    Not too sure between Shaman and Warlock. While both classes got some new tools (Spirit Link Totem, New Shard System etc..) I feel Blizzard really let the new shard system fall apart. There are very, very limited uses of it in pve. Sure the instant pet rez is nice but if Blizz put any effort into pet AI we wouldn't need it. As the Pyrelords on the PTR have proven a pet can be told by the AI that "hey I'm attacking a reflective shield. I should stop." Other than that the only other uses for soul burn are instant soulfires that only one spec uses and the occasional soul burned seed of corruption. This system really needs another look over.

    I dont think blizzard is favoring any class, but I believe in pisspoor work. And the worst balancing job reward goes to mages

    Fact of the matter is that my class isn't good enough and all the other classes are OP.

    Its always ''the other class''. Nobody needs to explain anything just to say ''that class'' and feel they've done something against ''the people'' who are OP in your eyes.

    All the words between the '' '' can be replaced by a random class. Good luck!

    I'm with you on this one. I play a restoration druid and don't feel Blizzard has given them any sort of special treatment this expansion.

    Frost mages. Obviously.

    What the hell guys? Mages where always the favorite class for Blizzard but in Cataclysm I believe the most favored class is Hunter.
    Take a look at the dmg meters and also in PVP. Hunters where the joke in PVP before cataclysm and now they are OP in many scenarios.
    Mages are where they where the whole time... always on top!

    I mean that Feral Druids needs some love in this Xpac. The loss of mobility, the lack of a finisher (Spamming Shred is fun), the hack to our end talent (Berserk) in PvP, the bad design of SD and up to 4.1 the shitty AoE after nerfing Swipe.

    yeah but the question isn't who's on top of the recount list. It's clear by reading patch notes mages and paladins get the most attention from the developer's sure in the case of paladins the attention hasn't been good for them but as far as mages go frost was tearing up pvp and what do they do last patch? they buff frosts damage so all three of there specs can be pve viable no other pure has three pve viable trees.

So now you think you are owed something and you don’t have to work for it and now you’re on a really bad road to nowhere because there are people who will play to that sense of victimhood, aggrievement and entitlement, and you still won’t have a job.” - Condoleezza Rice
