Did Blizzard forget about you mages?

Mage
Well 5.1 is here, yay. I don't want this thread to be a complaining thread; However I'm very disappointed in Mages. I do not know mechanics of Mages or what gear you need, but from I've noticed Mages do too much damage. On my pally I'm the off tank for a progression raid group and we have a Mage and he is the only one who ever pulls aggro off me on trash.

I also do pvp as ret and I have an eley shammy as well. Now I really don't want to ask for much from blizzard, but the least I'd expect is for them not to let 1 class rule them all 1v1 or 1v3. Lets not discuss other classes in their lacking but rather why Mages can easily solo almost every class with merely 1 deep freeze and a silence.

I also forgot to include that either blizzard nerf'd nearly every class in damage in 5.1. Some classes that did not get buffed in damage in my opinion did not need to do more damage with the appropriate gear.
Mages, warriors and locks do too much damage.

Welcome to blizzards amazing balance team. their solution, add more pvp power to weapons so the effects are amplified.
A bit too obvious there bro.

That would only happen if he single targets something you are not. Tell him to stop sucking and get a focus target macro.

If he actually pulls aggro off you using AoE, or targetting something you do... Well, then it's entirely you who suck.

One day, you too will realise that it's fun to engage trolls. It's a great stress reliever.

And I am very disappointed in Mages also.

After weeks of serious discussion Blizzard still refuses to change our Level 90 talents, we feel forgotten, and it is utterly disappointing. Bait-and-switch.

I have yet to see a tank that can hold threat on me if i get a just decently lucky streak at the start of a fight.

I highly doubt all of those tanks suck, yes they aren't the best, but they certainly dont suck.
mother of god
I like the fact that I have had to use threat dumping mechanics at the start of a fight for the first time since ICC.

It means that I have a reason to still have Omen running in the background. I also get to call the tank bad for allowing a 200k dps burst at the start of the fight to pull aggro of him.

You're a pally posting a new thread in the mage forums. There is a 100% chance that this thread is a complaint thread.

I do not know mechanics of Mages or what gear you need, but from I've noticed Mages do too much damage.
Just shut up.

yes they did, because nerfing deep freeze,ring of frost,spellsteal, ice barrier by about 40%. amd the mage armors isn't enough.

why do kids with l2p issues always come to our forums crying?
Ya mages are just stupid op in pve at least, I am looking at you fire mages.

So go blood, learn to tank, then bathe in your amazing dps so all your butthurt goes away.
Mages are op nerf them.

Warriors are op nerf them.

Druids are op nerf them.

Warlocks are op nerf them.

Monks are op nerf them.

Shaman are fine.

Rogues are op nerf them.

Paladins are op nerf them.

Priests are op nerf them.

Death Knights are op nerf them.
Frost Mages now have a habit of pulling aggro with the Frost Bomb + Freeze + glyphed Fire Blast, or just a streak of crits, on trash mobs, which tends to have a lower threat on the tank than the boss.

I didn't know that pallies complain about mages even in PvE.

About killing someone fast, the same can be said about Ret pallies blowing cooldowns or Enhancement Shamans popping Ascendance. Frost, though, has a easier time than most casters to set damage with a stun, Deep Freeze. The nerfs in the patch were meant to make it harder and less profitable.
Dear Blizzard:

Paper is OP and needs to be nerfed.
Scissors are fine.
Signed, Rock.
