The problem is, I'm not sure I can justify not playing the Mage. With 5.0.4, Mages are just so damn powerful. Their kit is so damn versatile compared to most other classes.
My Warlock can kill things, sure. But the kit of a Warlock is... restricted. Spammable Fear, yeah, sure. Shadowfury, or another talent in that row. Spell Lock, a wimpier version of Counterspell.
But Mages... OMFG. Spammable Polymorph. Frost Nova. Dragon's Breath. Counterspell. Frostjaw. Deep Freeze. Blink to get out of stuns. And the new Combustion with a built-in stun!
On top of that, just to make sure people can't actually damage you, a nice Ice Barrier that absorbs for 40% health every 25 secs.
I mean... what the...?
I'm saying this as someone who's mained a Mage, and who's played both my Warlock, and my Mage, in many battlegrounds since 5.0.4.
Don't get me wrong, I had fun playing my Warlock! I was successful with it.
But when I tried my Mage... it just seems to be in a whole category above that. So... much... control... and so many ways to get out of things!
Is it like that only in 5.0.4, or are Mages going to be equally stupid OP at level 90?
