    Thumbs down mages are weak and underpowered

    I just don't know why anyone would want to play a mage in its current form :<

    Just look how terrible they are

    I saw a level 42 mage dueling in Merdian for a few hours before the servers went down, he wiped the floor with everyone but a Justicar/Shaman thing, that was a draw.

    I don't know, I am starting to agree with this. At first I loved my mage, (stormcaller/ele/dominator) but then when I played a cleric and warrior I saw how sloooow it was to kill stuff compared to those other characters. :/

    What a ******** video. The first fireball you do a repeat loop on. HES LEVEL ****ING 10. YOURE 19. GRATS???? The fact that he even survived a crit fireball from you is proof that mages are crap.

    Then i saw you stand there for 6 seconds to deal a whopping 251 damage. Sab deals double that non crit in the same amount of time and can do it all while moving.

    At 4:19 a level 10 takes 3 of your fireballs without going below 50%. Over the next 20 seconds that same level 10 proceeds to close to melee with you and bring you down below 40% before he dies with help from your team.

    Not once did you do anything impressive. I never saw you "instakill" 3 different people. And frankly that level 10 warrior outright embarrassed you. I cant believe you even posted this video.

    If this was supposed to be a showcase of the mage's damage dealing power then all you have accomplished is generating lawls.

    Is this a joke?

    The 3 different people he "'insta kills" were multiple levels below him. One was 4 levels, another was 6 levels, and another was 9.

    Not impressive, at all.

    And yes, everything is fine. Mages by and large are easy to kill because the person sitting behind the keyboard is terrible, doesn't know how to effectively play the character, or has a screwed up soul combination/talent spread.

    There are no bad/broken classes, just bad/broken players.

    Nothing irritates me more than someone complaining about how weak a class is, go play another one then. Played right most classes can be useful .. or powerful as proven here

    Try hitting lvl 40+. At 42 as a rogue I got hit for 2500 - 3k damage by a mage a couple of times. With all the stuns, turning me into a squirrel, slows, roots, etc. it was a real pain going against them if I ended up 1vs1.

    However, get two or more people against them and they drop in a matter of seconds.
