Easiest class to play?
11/30/2010 10:25 PMPosted by HaevenI had to check that we were in the year 2010, not 2005 when I saw this topic.
Easy mistake to make, but in 2005 the answer was clearly rogue.
The rotation was easy, but knowing how to avoid the lolinstagib 360 degree cleave kept you on your toes.
Arc mages punch AB use evocation every now and then arcane explosion =P
Arc Mages have to constantly watch mana percentages and CD's, as well as the correct rotation for your mana and cooldown times. And all of this WHILE watching the boss for any abilities. They are actually fairly hard to play well, but easy to play badly.
Sure, they have pretty much 3 major buttons, but still... most other classes have only a few more. They have a filler, then a short-ish CD ability (5-10), a longer CD (15-30) and either a ability to use with a proc or an ability that plays off the filler. That's 4 abilities, one more then Mages. Sure, some classes have more, but.. yeah...
Arc Mages WERE easy pre-cata with ABx4>AM, but not anymore.
(note: talking about level 85)
