Initial 5.2 thoughts -- Mage logs

Mage
After my first night of ToT I'm actually somewhat content with the class. I'm very happy to finally be back fire, but of course many aspects of fire quite frankly suck.

In a world where just about every boss has adds, mages just can't keep up. On top of that, its not like our single target damage is the best. So we have !@#$ty add damage and are slightly above average single target.

Here are my guilds logs from Tuesdays raid:

and the rest should come around tonight.

Also, if you wish to watch the VODs they should be up on my twitch channel twitch.tv/bombtracks (may contain offensive language)

Its hilariously and unbelievably better. I'm starting to realize the reason I never ranked as Arcane in 5.1 was my unwillingness to use it. Live and learn I guess.

Just tried NT on a dummy, did 30,685 DPS. Switched back to LB, 36,727 DPS.

Is there a difference in rotation?


Your level is low. This is specifically at cap.

Oh and the fact that my raid was always missing CoE and on 3 heal fights spell haste.
Can't help himself apparently.

Honestly, his raid progression bugs me. It doesn't make any sense. Its like he's a social back up for his guild and he doesn't play mage seriously. His last logs were in Cata. H-Will but no H-Kings? 4 Fengs but only 2 Stone guard?

Oh I didn't see that post! Guess I should have posted there first. My apologies.
initial thoughts

mages not even "nerfed down" to everyone else, which would have been fine

mages were over nerfed to below everyone.

not even competitive.pre patch my mage would rock the meters top 5, sometimes first, always competitive.now? always last ,2 days - 5 mans, 10 mans, 25 mans, always last or near last.at best with some luck can make your way to mid pack.

this isnt an over nerf? really? than what is?

mages bring dps to raids, thats it but evey class that brings much more utility( off specs, off heals, b rezs, healthstones, varied buffs ,possible role changes etc) got buffed.i find no logic in this.
When I try to copy the URL for your logs it includes the '...' used to abbreviate the URL, how do I use the link properly?
