    Default Seriously Trion Whats with mages atm??

    Ok so now I have evidance of current state of PvP mages, Stormcallers.

    Attacks used:

    Lightning Burst:
    Blasts the enemy with lightning, dealing 163 to 171 Air damage. Damage is increased by 50% for each stack of Electrified on the enemy. Deals 10% of the total damage done to the targeted enemy to up to 5 other enemies within 7 meters for each stack of Electrified on the targeted enemy. Removes all stacks of Electrified from the targeted enemy.

    > 5 enemys

    Arctic Blast:
    Blasts the enemy and up to 10 other enemies within 7 meters with ice, dealing 103 to 107 Water damage, reducing their movement speed by 50% for 10 seconds and causing affected enemies to suffer from Hypothermia for 10 seconds.

    > 10 enemys

    Now seriously hitting 5-10 people for basically 6k criticals and 1 shotting most of em. And they nerf warriors?? Also mages can self heal WTF is this?

    BTW I have 851 valor and 35% spell reduction in talents.

    so 34% in valor + 35% in talents = 69%, so mages are currently hitting for (critical) 16000

    16000 - 69% = 4960

    Not even funny.

    That was during full cooldowns (once every 2 minutes) while you gave him 7+ seconds to completely set up on you (serious l2play issues, SC's die in less then 7 seconds if you know what you're doing, even then if you know how to cleanse they are useless).

    Also it only hits for maximum damage on you - not anyone else (they don't have 3 stacks of electrified + ice shear up)

    Furthermore you only have ~ 57% reduction not 69%.

    But even then I can tell you are lying because AB in full cooldowns raid buffed hits for ~ 10K, so I'm guessing you have far less then the reduction figures you gave because you simply cannot fire off 10K AB's in PvP.

    Oh no..... some Mage went through 4 skills, a total of 6.5 seconds of standing stationary and casting at you, so they could burst you for 4k.

    You're right, that's so OP that they had to stand there being completely vulnerable for 6.5 seconds focusing on you the whole time in order to build up to a lucky critical hit, and they probably had their cooldowns running, so they could even do it every 2 minutes!

    Nerf them.

    Why is it that every time a mage does anything, other than fall over dead, in PvP someone comes screaming to the forums that we are overpowered?

    I'd give you a more thought out response, but after reading this one and an earlier post you put up, I decided to put as much thought into my response as you do learning how to counter other classes.

    If anyone is stupid enough to let a SC build up charges then pop cool downs and you still haven't stunned him or moved from Los, then sorry, you deserved everything you get.

    Sorry but please L2P,people won't ever Be happy until Trion gives them a I win button they can press every 30 seconds.

    It's simple, if you aren't paying attention to what debuffs/curses etc are being put on you during pvp, you really need to start learning and not come to the forums asking for a class to be nerfed because you don't know how to play.

    Let me guess, you were the kid at school who took his ball home when you were losing?

    WAIT. WHAT?
    He gave the stormcaller 7+ seconds and that's why he's a noob?
    Saboteurs were nerfed beyond oblivion because they were able to deal 4-6k burst damage after 5-7 seconds.
    So it's ok for mages, but bad for rogues?

    Suck my left nut, i hate this frigging community.

    Same **** here.

    Nerf them.
    And again.

    Honestly, i couldn't care less about mages.
    But if my class gets nerfed into the ground because it has high burst after 5-10 seconds setup time, i see no reason why another calling should be able too.

    And i agree, the OP is exaggerating, but even 5k+ damage for one skill is far too much, if 4k damage is too much for 6 skills as a rogue (even when its backloaded, because your setup still deals some damage, charges don't).

    There is a big difference between spaming an INSTANT that you can do while MOVING while your target is CCed to a CAST TIME spell that you need to be STATIONARY which does break CC.

    This was before rank 7 and 8 gear at rank 6. Figured I'd just make you even more mad.

    A Warrior QQ'ing of all classes. You do know Warriors can kill Stormcallers in a few seconds right? Definite L2P issue.
