Are there others out there?

Those that like the level 90 talents tend to believe they add situational flavor and some technical challenge for a modest damage boost.

Those that dislike the level 90 talents point out the fact they don't add anything new to our tool kit; they just make our current abilities more complicated to use. They also penalize us if we don't use them properly, since we are balanced around some minimum up-time.

I'd be happy if using the talents gave me something *new* to work with if I met that goal: a new single-use nuke after a full evo, improved blink from within a RoP, a limited range AOE stun after IW pops. Instead I get a flat damage over time increase, only noticeable on recount.

I get no positive reinforcement from using my level 90 talents.

There are MILLIONS of happy players out there but there's no need for us to come to the forums and complain so you just don't hear about it. Which is why it pisses me off when someone on the wall says US mages are pissed, or WE ALL hate this when they are actually the minority.


Of course you are the minority.

You posted on the forums that you LIKE the talents.

BUT as you yourself state, the forums are always representitive of the MINORITY.

So the truth must be that the majority of the mages HATE these talents.

Only asked because this is the 2nd thread that Grimsheeper has continuously called me that in and I figure maybe there is something obvious I am missing.

You're missing the point that it's not how his name is spelled.

Because there are plugins for web browsers that let people see all of your characters.

I have to admit I've always pronounced it ma-jes-ki myself >.>

I guess it's actually mage-ski? I admit that makes more sense . . .

I am aware its the specific of hirohan, instead of hiroran. He has called me that in another thread and i was confused there too.

I know it’s not just me who likes their mage and the lvl 90 talents.


Aside from plain statements like that, care to share WHAT EXACTLY you like about these talents and HOW you apply them in PVE?

I just like change I guess. I find them very challenging if you want to squeeze out every ounce of DPS you have to earn it.
They're ez just to play, but fun/hard to master them.
If Blizzard just kept the same talents with little tweaks here and there from day one I’m sure they would lose many players from being bored.
I like the fact that there’s change/challenge because it makes it a new game to me.

Before MOP came out I was at Blizzcon and they announced the new mage tree.
I thought it sounded awesome on paper but not as impressed when it went live.

I’m not saying it’s the best lvl 90 talents they could come up with but I’m sure it could have been much much worse.

Everyone knows a very well played mage will do sick damage but only if he/she earns it. And... once you’ve earned it you’ll feel like you’ve really accomplished something cool.
To me that feeling is why I play the game.

I guess it really doesn’t matter what Blizzard gives me for talents. I’ll take it and still earn my glory while spanking a boss down.

I’m no master but they way I “apply” the 90 talents in PVE is I work my butt off. Don’t skip a beat, watch your mana, procs, CD’s, dots, buffs, know the fights, and change your glyphs and tree for each boss.
Hope that helps.
Good luck all and I hope you get the talents you all wish for. : )

Very well said Monkey, thats essentially the same reason i enjoy the talents. Quite positive i have said something similar to this when i gave reason as to why i liked them.

My old GM did too, even though I told him repeatedly it was Mage-ski (I'm Polish). I wanted to slap him every time.

I usually just go by ski, as I have several "ski" suffixed toons.
