    Default What is a Mage the best at?

    Best healer?

    Best DPS?

    Best AOE DPS?

    Best range?

    Best survivability?

    Best CC? (you could make an argument for a Dom but that wouldn't even be true)

    Anything?

    Really?

    I would be happy if most these a Mage was not on the bottom but sadly they are....

    In 1.5 PvP wise? Honestly.. Best to be in Premades.
    Other than that, youre just free favors in the Open World or in Pugs.

    the only reason why anyone takes us to any raid is for archon and tank for king in HK and NOTHING else. were not top dps, not the best healers. other then those 2 roles there is absolutly no reason to ever bring a mage. you will gimp your raid if you do so.

    -51 dev shadows lock getting nerfed. Chloro/lock is only worth it in open world, pointless in warfronts, I don't care how many numbers you put up, you can't burst damage enough to kill through someone getting healed, you can't heal someone else consistently enough to keep them up through warrriors/rogues. Rogues are best atm.

    -Icars are best raid heals, imagine getting a free flourish every time you cast vile spores, and can save up to 4 of them at any time. Smart heals on DoL put them up top for raid heals(they do more damage too, btw)

    -Ok fine, I guess I'll give you archon, though really it's pretty on par with bard.

    -As of right now say bye bye to storm caller. AoE will be cab territory soon enough.

    Best dead weight.

    But as long as there are forum heroes like Cromagis who will carry us thru raid content, I can't really complain.

    You forgot to mention DoL is 35(38 if talented) meter radius vs flourish at 20.

    even tho I do like my mage.. I am realy only playing him with a hope of a change at some point.. must be the mages turn to get love soon.. /pray

    I run my DRR almost everyday with both my Mage and my cleric .. And what i have noted is I rarely see many mages or warriers in raids.. its 2-3 mage warriers pr raid .. rest is clerics and rogue.. that must mean that allot of people are running rogue/cleric alts or rerolling ..

    remember how dredlands looked back in the days ? 90% was deadknight and paladins leveling .. =)

    trion its a sign so if you want to keep the Balance go look at the numbers ..

    I don't think we are the best in anything, maybe except AOE damage.

    Others do everything else better, even bard support is better in terms of buffs/debuffs. We still get 1 spot for Archon since it stacks.
