    Default Whitewizard mage PVP guide

    i actually posted this thread to pvp section too but i want this to be seen as many people as possible to show people mages are not desperate against melee.
    I made this build to heal and survive but it turns out you use damaging abilities alot in this build so i think with some adjustment to your playstyle this build can give you everything you need.





    Here is a little video about me doing some pvp,if youre new to pvp as a mage you might find some helpful tips in this video.
    I had 800 valor pvp gear 6k+ HP and whitefall trinket while recording it.Even if youre not new to pvp you might find something that will bring you back to life in this build because this video is mostly about surviving.
    Now alot of mages cry about melee in this game but this build will help you to enjoy pvp again.
    You might say i counter bad geared or noob people in this video but it has been made in 1 night and its only for you to get the idea of this build.
    You can ask me anything in here or in-game
    I hope I can help you to get back on track with this video,ENJOY!

    PS:if I get good reaction from people i might make more guides about mage pvp.

    That was highly entertaining, /clap for you. Not the best spec ever, but it looks very fun. Great job coming up with something neat like that.

    fun looking spec. my spin on it. I might try it when dom gets nerfed.

    would you rather have essence surge or hastened withdraw (which stacks with ride the wind). I know which one I'd rather have! also, you get phase shift which is kind of cool especially vs dominators.

    as with most mage tools, you cannot macro ride the wind. it is a toggle on/off that consumes charge.

    yea but this video is not a codex guide i just wanted to show how the build works what are the key abilities etc. i usually dont hang around statue and vault too but those places have fewer people than codex,in codex you mostly see aoe but in vault you can get a chance to fight against 1-2 people

    O hi there. I am on the defiant side of whitewizards' warfronts. He has a nice funny build. It gets even better on 1v2-3, though on 1v1 I was able to kill him with my necro-lock but I have to admit his build is funnier to play. So try it out folks

    Well at least we know a mage is really good at running around non stop and spamming an instant that does like 300 damage, I mean heck... thats what mages are supposed to do right? Not real damage like warriors...

    in all honesty, great movie, great survivability, but yea we know mages have great survivability, its just, I for one signed up to be killing people fast and dying fast, not distract people by running around and making them made since they can't kill you lol, although it did look fun! But thats just my opinion
