So far I've been leveling my mage as almost every spec since I like a variety and since I'm now 29 and at the top of my bracket, I decided to do some PVP.

I tried Lock/Chloro, Necro/Lock and Pyro/Dom and though I did relatively well though I was a bit unfamiliar with the spec's I still found the experience fairly lackluster.

Is there some special level or PVP bracket that Mages become more viable. I'm not saying I want to be OP but I'd like it to be about skill and survivability rather than mindless zerging which seems to be the case often. I'm especially struggling with Warriors since they hit so hard and I can't really get out of melee range quick enough.

Any Soul specs, PVP bracket recommendations or tips would be greatly appreciated!
