Who still plays this class?

Mage
I eagerly await your post praising the talents when you hit 90.


I get the fact they're not that great, but that won't stop me from having fun playing my mage ^_^
They're pretty much the only reason I dislike my mage this expansion, I was having a great time until level 90.
I love my mage... it is the most accomplished character I have

I have leveled an elemental shaman to 90.. a hunter to 87... multiple others to at least level 80

I find it hard to play anything but mage... yeh other classes have some fun spells... I wish so much that mages get a thunderstorm ability someday

But mage is still my main
Played this toon since Classic. Never switched mains once.

Linking WoL ranks from fights in Terrace isn't a strong enough argument. Except for Tsulong, and parts of the Lei Shi encounter, the other ToES fights are mostly stationary... which is where mage dps will always really be outstanding.

So of the 16 raid bosses, mages appear in the top 10 DPS rankings on 13 bosses. Also, mages have put out the best DPS on 4 of the 16 encounters in MoP.

And yes, with mages as a solely dps class, having our dps falling under a priest who was originally designed to heal is a nice burn, Blizz. /not

Priests dont make a DPS appearance on any of the 16 fights.

Yeah mages are in a real bad spot.
yeah, exactly this [EDIT: what #18 said]. i've been chucking fireballs through ups and downs, and no matter what, i love playing a mage.

It changes at 90, sorry.


Haha, I'll be the judge of that :-)

^ It gets better at 90, sorry. You just need to grow a pair. <3


This.


Wait till you get to 90 bud. It has nothing to do with meters, dps, viability and everything to do with fun. Level 90 talents completely ruin any fun you will have in PvE.

"Not great" doesn't really do them justice. Just wait....you will see.
I'm going to go out on a limb and say that there are many other classes that have worse talents, if not a broken class overall.

I'm amazed blizzard loves you so much considering you're such ungrateful children.
*sob* They don't even have the heart to give you a good nerf.

Now that's love.

Rogues are probably the only class I would not gladly trade my level 90 talent tier with.
have you guys seen the entire shaman tree? now that's a joke
