Mage or shadow Priest in 5.2 arena?

Mage
have both of them in lvl 89, and was wondering what would be better in PvP and regular BGs?
Id have to say mage.. spriest are not so great in ptr. You could also try out both on ptr.
how are mages doing in ptr?

lol?

I would say priest because you can do both roles. Spriests are NOT weak on the ptr.

play whatever is more fun, though.

You cannot effectively heal in DPS gear or vice versa. I can assure you that if you play a Priest you will still end up performing only one role.

To answer the thread title: Mage
Spriests provide enough healing in PvP gear to dramatically impact the match while still doing good burst.

They are one of the best 2s partner any class can have in double dps.

So.. you buy... two sets.

Which you will be able to get honor for next season after purchasing enough cq gear.
Ill be doing 2s with 2 friends(1 at the time...) , they got a ret pally, lock, and a healing monk... Does that change anything?
Whichever is more fun. They'll both be plenty viable.

GL always being a tier behind in gear then.

I would say preist then. you can chose to go double dps, or dps/heals. As a mage, you'd have to be double dps constantly.

But if you're really just doing 2s pick whats more fun. 2s don't really matter that much tbh.

Wow. No.

You get your shadow set, yay.

Oh you got that cq gear, now you can buy the same ilvl set for healing with honor points, yay.

now you're on par with both, yay.

Untrue.

By the time you can buy conquest gear with honor you can buy Elite conquest gear with Conquest.

Next season, Elite conquest gear is a higher item level than normal conquest gear.

Ergo, one of your sets will be behind because it will be normal and not Elite.
That's not how I understood it.

But honestly the guy is only doing 2s, so I don't think it matters in the long run.
Why are you trying to explain something you do not understand. It seems you would be better off reading instead of posting.
