flow of mage smack talk in this thread is a con shell game.
it starts out that they can not kill players in a deep freeze unless they are undergeared. a geared resil player shows that this is not true, and that it is KNOWN not to be true by the mages lying about it as the mages saying it was not true ARE blowing up people in single deep freezes. then the mages change the argument to they can't blow up a toon in a deep freeze if that toon has help from another toon. so the mage is saying that if they are facing TWO people alone then they can't kill a player in a single deep freeze. full stop.
the question is if we think its good for the game to have any toon able to 100 to 0 another player with opportunity EVERY 30 SECONDS unless they have help from a second toon.
and good mages have been admitting that they can and do and will continue to kill players in deep freezes even after the nerfs.
most other classes can also kill you in a few seconds... but they have that opportunity every 2 to 3 minutes and not every 30 seconds.
They can't 100-0 geared players.
This is correct. 100-0 in a deep is genuinely rare and takes really, really good/lucky timing as well as burst trinket up. And all other trinkets down because one dispel destroys the entire thing.
Mages have absolutely zero sustained damage outside of deeps. And it's only every 4th deep do they have any real solo killing power. The other ones they're very reliant on teammates finishing the job.

Anyone who says that mages are faceroll in pvp has obviously never played one. It's easy for anyone to pick up a mage and beat pve geared noobs who have 10 hks, but when you start playing against people who actually know how to play you will find it's a little different.
Mage setup is now no different or more complicated than anyone else. This would have held true back in TBC when mages had setup and the *majority* of the other classes either had passive ramp ups or no true setup at all.
Except no other class has a stun tied to their ultra burst mechanic. Imagine if retribution or DK stuns gave you free crits...
Clearly the entire community (non mages) think highly of them /sarcasm off
this guy is a tool.
Once again, who cares about 2v2?
Mages do need changes, but you people crying about 1v1 and 2v2 are a waste of pixel space.
And lol @ 100-0 in a deep. You have to actually wear the gear to benefit from it.

Coming from a poorly geared mage. LOL
This is his mage's armory. Nice 10 stats gem in your belt. I didn't know people were still using those. Obviously a prismatic gem still goes in a prismatic socket right?
