Tired of being forced to use RoP/Invocation because IW can't be up enough. Tired of pulling last because I dislike using a clunky mechanic that forces me to stand still to DPS/stand still for 5(ish) seconds every 40(ish) seconds... *sighs*
PS: Lhiv, you know I think you're awesome, but please don't math at me about average time of IW being up. I remember your post from last time, and you can math that all you want, but due to the situational portion of IW, it really can't be mathed. Same goes for RoP on fights that randomly puts bad stuff on the ground/forces you to move, and even Invocation if it's frequently. These talents were unique designs, but executed horribly, plain and simple.
Edit: Blizz, do you see how many fellow Mages dislike these talents? Look below. Look at all the other threads on this issue. GC, you still play a Mage, don't you? Do you REALLY find it fun to do less DPS than everyone else (IW) or to keep up Invo/RoP, JUST to stay competitive? Seriously, these aren't fun. At all. You all said it yourselves, talents (ESPECIALLY the last tier) are supposed to feel OVERPOWERED. The only OP feeling I get is using Invocation to heal when soloing old stuff. Other than that, our (T6) talents just suck. I'm sorry, but they just suck.
Update: The official point of this thread is mostly that the talents are clunky/not fun to use. You CAN discuss the fundamentals of the uptimes and compare the damage of them if you want, but the main goal here is to get them to be less... well, crappy in terms of QoL/Fun, as right now, they're not fun to use.
