    Default Mages seem very underpowered

    I play a mage and it just seems like they do not do even close to the amount of damage they should in pvp. My friends play cleric and warrior and they can live like 8x longer than me and do 2x the damage.

    It just feels underpowered as you're probably used to playing a really overpowered mage from another game. Mages have crazy CC in this game, they don't need crazy single target damage as well.

    Even though the popular opinion is that mages are underpowered I think they look the most exciting calling after viewing some You tube videos.

    Rly? Thats what forums are for? So ppl can QQ about x class being UP when there are already threads about it? U can use the search option to look for threads like these and see what people have already said about this kind of stuff. Unless its real feedback, with supporting evidence, there is no need for another thread like this

    Exactly. Forums are for everybody to share his opninion and because other threads on this topic are so much spammed by all those "on forums I am a hero" beings yelling around, they can do nearly godly dmg with mage, but in fact havenīt even created one ingame, its perfectly ok to start a new thread...

    Warlock. Fear, snare, Stun.

    The low level mages, are a little underpowered but when you level up they increase in power and you will defeat warriors, rogues in 1vs1, i do it with my lock.

    The Mage souls are very specialised. If you want to do a job, you have to pick the right soul for it.

    I will tell you now, if you want to do solo PVE; Necromancer and Elementalist are the best ways to go. In a Group PVE or PVP environment it's a different story, however. They're ok for Group PVE but there are better options. For PVP, pet classes are worthless.

    I'll give you a run down of what each soul is good at and for which situations:

    Archmage (PVP, of course)

    Archon (I have not played enough to make a fair judgement!)

    Chloromancer (Healing - Group PVE)

    Dominator (CC - PVP)

    Elementalist (Solo PVE)

    Pyromancer (Single Target and CC - Group PVE and PVP)

    Necromancer (Solo PVE)

    Stormcaller (AOE, CC and Mobility - Group PVE and PVP)

    Warlock (DoTs, CC and Mobility - Group PVE and PVP)

    Hey ... I bet this guy plays a rogue. The forums are here to voice your feedback, if you have an issue go ahead and let Trion know. Take some guys off the rogue team and put them onto the mage team. The rogue developers have already made that class over powered, let them do the same to the mages.

    Ran breach yesterday with 3 mages in the group (plus warrior and rogue). 1 healing and two DPSing. Fantastic group, ripped through the instance with no issues. No worse than any of the (many) groups i've had with either rogues, warriors or clerics.
    Are you clueless? Is this your first day on forums? Do you have trouble reading sentences? Then this guide to soul selection is for you!

    I don't understand this UP mage thing. I've been playing a SC, doing mostly warfronts. Not only can I top the damage down easily(which I admit isn't that important, besides putting tons of pressure on the healers), but I can nuke down most classes 1v1. Static Flux+Lightning Strike+Raging Storm+Lightning Field/Thunderbolt. With Lightning Strike critting for upwards of 350 at 17 and Raging Storm doing around 300 non-crit(a delicious amount if it crits!) without even having Static Flux up, things die. Not to mention the shear amount of knockbacks and roots a SC has...

    *shrugs* I can't really speak for the other souls, as I haven't really tried them(minus Pyro, which just decimates faces). I do know, however, SC is pretty nice.
