    Default Mage Rolls for 13 (What's left for us)

    Rolls for a mage in 1.3
    1. Tanking - No significant change in this area, we're still not qualified to tank
    2. Healing - Our healing ability has been significantly reduced, we're far behind clerics in this regard now.
    3. DPS - Our DPS is significantly behind that of a Rogue or Warrior with less survivability, why would someone bring us along?
    4. Support - We still have good buff as an archon

    I guess we're relegated to buff bot.

    Chloro is still fine, especially as a raid healer.

    We definitely aren't worth a spot as DPS if you have other options though.

    I don't place any value at all on these chicken-little posts but I feel duty bound to point out that the word you're looking for is "roles" not "rolls" and the patch is 1.3 not 13.

    I saw "Mage rolls for 13" and I was expecting some super secret dice rolling tricks or something.

    0/10 for disappointment.

    Give me two daggers and I'll crush my mage's DPS, that's for sure.

    Melee isn't any harder than ranged. Please note my signature, with special care to the right half.

    You have to be pretty terrible at video games if moving around against a scripted boss is what you define as difficult. Especially considering that the boss is following your Tank, which you already know where he's positioning the boss, or he's moving to a scripted location.

    What's even better is that you used Warriors as the definition of "difficult melee". What's wrong, buddy, that big scary fire with a white emote messing up your 2 button macro rotation?

    None of this is 'difficult' in my opinion, but melee is more punishing than casting. Even something as simple as chasing a boss thats being kited during zerk phase is more work than rotating and casting.

    Two button mashing is hard. So is positioning. I mean doing both might take both hands and then he couldn't touch himself in an impure manner.
