Why have you not addressed mages?

Arenas
Frost bomb is just plain silly. It reminds me so much of the old rogue stunlock from 100-0. Inspite of what rogues said it was mind numbingly easy to pull off. It took no skill at all. Frost bomb is in this same boat and honestly it is beyond time to address it.

If you can hotfix Chaos Wave certainly you can find a way to get a quick fix in to this broken ability. Seriously can we have at least some response as to why this ability is not being addressed?
Because... We're special tee-hee! ^ ^
because mages are so broken right now that no one (even mages) knows how to fix the class. and useless QQ posts don't really make a difference when there's 5-10 on the front page.

but that's what happens when you try making frost a pve spec

It can be easily fixed with Frostbolt de-buff taking more damage from Frostbolt to boost sustained while nerfing Frost Bomb damage to the ground and increasing its utility to still make it attractive compared to the other choices.

They also really need to look at the final 90 tier of talents for PvP, people will almost always take Incanter's Ward even before Spellsteals mana cost got increased. The other choices are just abysmal and annoying.
When they did the hot fix to Chaos Wave I felt hopeful. Figured for sure on Tuesday they would do some quick fix to also address frost bomb. Disappointed.
They did, they just nerfed the wrong stuff.
I am so ready to see mages nerfed to the point of warrior last season.
Stupid thing is that chaos wave and chaos bolt took some ramp up time. With frost bomb its Deep Freeze, frost bomb, fire blast, and dead. No building up just burst that seems to not go down even with resilience.
They nerfed deep freeze duration which was the wrong thing to nerf; I hope if they nerf frost bomb damage they compensate by giving them 5 sec freeze back. But only if it's a super srs nerf.
Why the hell does frost have to be for PvE. Don't they have fire and arcane for that? The formula of Frost=pvp fire and arcane=pve seemed to be working just fine. Man things are messed up right now.
Don't buff frostbolt unless they can make it instant cast. You'll never get it off in arena with how much mages are trained.

Easy answer: Chaos Wave did not affect Warlock PvE damage on most boss fights while a Frost Bomb nerf would cripple Frost PvE damage and that's obviously unacceptable for Blizzard.


Frost PvE hasn't been viable SINCE the release of wrath. Even back then, frost during Naxx (PvE) Was terrible, it was only used for the slows from Blizzard and that's it. Blizzard will NEVER EVER nerf a mage. It will NEVER happen. They've been number 1 damage in PvE and PvP since TBC.

Stop QQing and just live with it. Play the annoying game against mages, just LoS till they get annoyed and make a mistake. It will work eventually.

Our mages were only there as tanks for maulgar and CC bots in TK/SSC

...Are you serious?

Mages were excellent in BC. RMP was the TOP 3v3 comp for the whole expansion. They also took skill and were a hard class to master back then. Now you just jump around spamming novas and frozen orb for procs to spam ice lance and one shot with a Frost Bomb Shatter. Plus all CCing is stream-lined ez mode, instant aoe poly every 1.5 min/casted every 45 seconds.
