5.2 mages pvp how were they looking?

i've spent a bit of time away from my mage so no idea what is really going on with them now and going to happen in 5.2 so hoping one of you lovely people can give me a quick run down and if it'll be worth coming back to him purely for pvp in 5.2 :) cheers

They've changed a bit, and will definitely be viable. As for frost, ring will no longer be top notch, and will be generally replaced by ice ward. Since ice ward is instant cast, PoM wont be quite as important, and most mages will run blazing speed instead. Flameglow is also a great talent, and will be used over temporal shield and ice barrier.

As for fire, since scorch was made baseline for the spec, many fire mages will run PoM to easily score 4-pyroblast combos and smash their foes into the dust like nothing.

And as for arcane... Well dont ask me about arcane. I have no clue. All I know is that their ramp-up will take less time.

So yeah, mages are looking pretty fine for 5.2. But that shouldn't be why you're coming back to him. Rerolling Fotm classes gets you nowhere. Play what you love playing and youll get further no matter what.
