best caster 5.3??

I want to try a caster so I recently leveled my priest to 90
My friend says that shadow is getting nerfed really hard in 5.3 and that I should level my mage who is currently 85.
My question is how badly are spriests getting nerfed next patch and what do you think will be the best caster?

Well mages never get nerfed and they're really powerful so that's always a good choice.

But even with all of the huge nerfs to spriests they will still be good.

Play whichever class you like better, don't choose classes based on how good they are.. it could change in a few patches, you know?

With the best survivability from epic self heals, massive damage, and best cc in game, Destro Locks will be top caster 5.3!

try ele shaman, there aren't enough of those to roll around in their blood
I was going to main on my spriest from the beginning of MoP, even managed to get one to 90 on the beta, decided on warlock though and I wish i had stuck with my plan of spriest

Warlocks seem like they will be pretty good, and so do ele shamans. Mages will probably be top, with spriest about the same as the aforementioned classes.

Mages actually act like they take offense to that while spamming icelance and saying they get trained to much to cast. Yet others such as locks get off Chaos Bolt (hence screenies of it destroying people) Ele Shammies have to hard cast outside of RNG Proc and my time as ele you either get leveled or melt someone because you had a string of RNG better then anyone could wish for.

no clue why people are thinking mages are gods 5.3.. they're not getting any buffs. the only good comp they have is getting nerfed because of spriests losing MD/swap which = rdruid nerfs also.

the only other decent mage comps are like rmp or mls, which aren't even top tier... and rogues are getting nerfed also

but hey, mages 1 shot the world so yeah, mages are best at 1200

RMP has no counter, so unless rogues really get hammered by nerfs RMP will absolutely dominate ladders again next patch. Only reason they don't now given the absurd state of rogues is that spriests are even more absurd.

Mages for sure with spriests being a close second, nowhere near where they are this season though.

This is a very real possibility. Elemental shamans also have a surprisingly high representation in high rated 3s compared to their overall population.

As someone who wants rogues completely removed from the game...I would be lying is I said I thought they weren't going to feel the effect of their nerfs.

Lol, who are you? There's no way that is your mage considering all this "knowledge" of high-end PvP you have. Seems to me like you just look at the top 50 on your battlegroup and judge from there... terrible.

EDIT: I think you got a high rating last season like every other terrible frost mage and now that the meta has shifted, you suck again. good luck with that.
