A good mage can control and kill 3+ people at a time almost constantly.


3+ terrible people... maybe

but still, your exaggeration is detracting from the impact of your qq

It is about time Shadow Priests were brought up from their pitiful state in cataclysm.

Step aside Mages, you now have to SHARE your pedestal as the kings of pvp. Notice how I said the word SHARE.

I don't think you people realize how gutted shadow priests were in cata. They lost friendly dispel with no compensation, their heals were nerfed in power and mana cost through the roof, they had no self peels so melee sat on them and ATE them, they had one burst cooldown, terrible mobility, and nerfed dots.

Sorry, but Shadow needed a buff. They were a very weak class that needed to be babysat 100% of the time to do anything. Uninterrupted shadow priest casting wasn't even that great when you could have an arcane mage/boomkin doing the same thing.

Because, you know, battlegrounds are balanced around solo play and all...
Never said they were.

Like, you know, no Paladin or Death Knight has ever thrown up an invulnerability shield...
Never.

I think people need to stop whining for nerfs until the 90 bracket is out. There's never going to be perfect balance in the lower brackets.
People keep saying this but its not balanced at 90 either lol.

IMO.. Mages Locks and Spriests pretty much account for 35-40% of everyone that is playing right now, it isnt a single FOTM class its "these three classes are FOTM" They all need a nerf. These three are far and beyond better than all the other classes.

What do you mean? we both only have one silence, the frostjaw talent seems useless most of the time and I have yet to see it used effectively.


Would like to give you some advice on the frostjaw utility.

1st.Spec into it
2nd.Glyph Deep Freeze.
3rd.Make a macro: /cast Deep Freeze
/cast Pyroblast
4th.In combat: Cast frostjaw,use your macro,cast inferno blast,cast insta Pyroblast!,combustion,cast insta Pyroblast! =dead.
Now all of this assuming they don't bubble or trinket,this kind of strategy works against anyone most of the time.
Oh and if you are doing this to a healer,make sure they are silenced after they are out of Deep.
I have tested this today and in bgs and i can tell you right now....BEST THING EVEEEEEEEER!

The highest I've crit someone is what? 44k on a low geared player? Mages (fire particularly) can hit me for much more WITHOUT the setup Spriests need to cast DP.


Got crit for 80k today from mind blast and i have 60% resil.
Don't even want to talk about their insane bubble.(for shadow)

And it's very fun when you are gettting smited to death. (for disc)

When spriests hit just as hard, have better defensive cooldowns, and can heal to full in 3 seconds?


i believe shadow priests are a scaling issue and wont be so bad geared at 90. The mage issue is more a problem with their vast tool-set, mega CC, short cds, control etc

Why does this make me laugh everytime a Druid says it?

^This. Any decent to good Druid would know that to escape some of these issues, all you have to do is change forms.
