Mages have no exploitable weaknesses.

They deal tons of damage
They adsorb tons of damage with their protective spells (probably THE MOST overpowered thing about mages. Why this is allowed to exist I have no idea).
They are extremely mobile
They have a vast amount of CC

Why in the world would I play anything OTHER than a mage as a ranged dps caster? Everyone else seems to be inferior to a Mage.

BM hunters destroy mages, shadow priests destroy mages, and warlocks are like tiny Gods. Also, you get to enjoy the benefit of being a hybrid at this moment of time, double dipping that sweet sweet pvp power, which means you heal like a pure healer and dps like a pure dps.

Mages are hardly the worst offenders right now.

Yes, I learned that this morning. One purge and their god shield is gone and they crumple like paper. Same with priests.

Edit: however, yes, the amount of damage a fire mage can put out is beyond retarded. And Frost Bomb, my god.

Mages used to be all about avoiding damage, and keeping damage away from them. Now they just absorb it. :(

Mages are stupid broken right now. Hopefully things are better at 90.

Frost bomb hits for 40% of your health alone when it crits, considering you can blow it up in a deep freeze without a gcd (when it explodes your gcd should be back i mean) with glyph of deep freeze (another no gcd) then frostbolt/ice lance inside the deep, then silence, cast frostbolt, use brain freeze proc, anything should be dead. Add glyph of icy veins to that and you have a melting corpse as well. That said, lets wait til 90 to truly judge them :D (shield was 100k/360k for 27.7% absorb health at 90 as opposed to 50/~140k now for 35.7% absorb, slightly less ><)

Well I like to put in my few words about mages and priest. Its getting out of hand in the bg's.. I been watching as things come closer to MOP. Those 2 classes are well over powered. I just got out of a bg and been biting my tongue hoping for and change with many others also noticing the difference, the battle gound i was in was10 vs 10 bg and on one team there were 5 Shadow Priest and 5 Mages. So its turning out to be nothing but a mage and priest war. Blizzard making a good game go bad quick. guess Ill do like many others and just pick out the power hitters and make a new toon. Mage or Priest HUMMM!

Cute, no. I promise you, if you put a glad player behind this toon and me behind a fully pvp geared mage, I will win despite the fact that I'm not even close to glad level.

I'm a free kill to mages on this toon, pretty much helpless.

The good news is I frequent my Hunter, who is pretty much even with mages (tranq spam + smart pet usage).

You can heal. Mage can not. If you want raw power you must give up healing. Shaman is jack of all trades master of crap. Don't complain, just heal us.

I have a totally exploitable weakness for spicy garlic vegetables and fine ales.
