    Default When Mages get nerfed?

    Thing that is going now at the moment is ridiculous, Pyromancers are top dmg dealers in all minigames and with good healer top dmg takers as well, much harder to kill than warrior in plate, immune to CCs and just standing one place and dealing ridiculous - Cinderburst ~5000 dmg in single spell who can survive?

    Quote from Mage:
    Standing in a green circle spamming fireball, firebolt, Inferno, cinderburst isn't really "playing". I don't like winning fights cause I can abuse my stunlockwhileimmunetocc circle; it feels broken and wrong

    Ok, now THIS is a troll. Hahaha. I'd love to cinderburst for 5k. Where do I train that spell.

    I can probably actually do that with the powerup. I've critted for 2.5k with cinder before. 3k fulminate without powerup is my highest.

    I think he means Fulminate. Which is pretty much our version of Titan strike minus the stun and the 20 seconds buildup of charge, does do more damage, though.

    5000 damage reminds me why I started a mage. can't wait to hit 50 and kill lots of players in pvp with my 5000 damage attacks.
    I started a warrior but it got complicated when I couldn't for the life of me work out what those swords under my portrait were for. Plus they had no healing soul and well we all know pvp healing helps more.

    well its pretty common that Mages are top dmg takers and dealers and one hit kill happens often when you are prestige rank 6:

    + lower CD
    + it's ranged
    + you don't need to build 3 attackpoints -> shifting blades -> build 3 attackpoints -> titan strike

    you really can't compare fulminate with titans strike ~

    Just dispel it. I've heard that that works.
    Please think at least twice before you click post.

    Guess you had fun that warfront? must have been against VERY bad players to win that bad.. I've got 2 items from T2 dungeons rest of my gear is from T1 dungeons and with my pyro spec my cinderburst crits for around 2500... Even with talents to make it do more damage to players it doesn't double you're dps

    And if mages could even get to crit for lets say 3k with cinderburst just think what other classes could do plx??? Cos i get hit for 2.5k by sabs and warrior just charge > Silence > 4 shot ya

    True. 1. It doesnt stun. 2 .It takes 7 or 8 spell casts to build up enough charge to use it (which takes about 20 seconds or so), and 3. You cant be dead, which is the toughest part to overcome as a mage.
