    Default Why bother rolling a mage over a cleric?

    When a cleric does even on par/better damage and has far better defenses then a mage ever could? Once I hit 50 on my Eth mage, I quit. I went back to my cleric and haven't looked back.

    Situationally better single-target damage.

    Consistently better AE damage.

    Massively superior mobility and CC management in PvP.

    Playstyle centered around active casting instead of passive buffs/procs.

    A for-real support soul with group buffs that are actually fairly game-changing in a group of sufficient size.

    You won't have to tank every time the warrior in your 5-man fails at life.

    ... that's probably most of it.

    Why bother rolling either? Get a warrior a or better yet, a rogue.

    Not better ST, not better AoE. The rest is true especially the last one.
