    Thumbs up Kervik Nice Mage Changes! +1

    Just read patchnotes on PTS and want to say good job!

    This looks like many new options for mages, improving synergy between the souls etc


    Fun times ahead!

    i am so happy to see synergies between trees!

    GSB 5/5, RoS 5/5, DH 4/4, GP 4/4, RotP 4/4, HK 11/11, 5/8 ID (HM, no-reflect Rusila). Recruitment is open. We are especially interested in a highly skilled mage!

    Yeah I really must agree with the sentiment here - whilst perhaps not perfect, frankly awesome changes all round! And since this is a draft I'm very prepared to wait it out .

    But yeah, from the looks of it:
    - huge revamps to Ele making it viable as a standalone at 51 (if propped up by other specs base skills albeit, but huge step! Low skills need a look at, compare Encase to the new Burning Bonds...)
    - huge increase in viability to both 51 Lock and 51 Necro, unlike the insane 165SP buff Ele can get may not be enough to make them PvE competitive, but great for PvP for sure.
    - changes to Pyro to make it less of a 1buttonspam and actually have situational abilities that may be worth using, along with incredible reduction in dead points
    - along with 51pts buffs, massive buffs to synergy between souls, Pyro in particular is perhaps too good, Lock fits nicely with it as well
    - SC alterations which seem alright for ST, but a large boost in AOE seem to distinguish it from the other specs with easier ST rotations

    My god, I'm overwhelmed, never thought I'd see Trion make such good changes to mages. I'm gonna go skip around somewhere with some cute animals, I think.

    Dear Kervik

    I'm sorry for ever doubting you, and somewhat trolling.

    I love you and would literally give you a hug if you were here.

    As someone who occasionally said Mages were being ignored I am happy to eat humble pie. Even if the changes do not achieve what I hope for I can't say Trion do not appreciate many of the issues we had.

    I'm very happy. I'm going to be able to stay 51 Warlock / 15 Archmage / 0 Archon for PVP and I might be able to go 51 Warlock for PVE.

    Really happy to see some well thought out changes to encourage new playstyles and specs.

    That said, I'd hate to see the death of stormcaller single target. Also, won't the reduced GCD talent from pyro make it a must for anyone in a raid setting?

    I'm shocked by how great these changes are.

    Patch by patch Trion are turning me away from my overly pessamistic attitude regarding changes. WoW is what made me this way though and it's nice to actually look forward to what's coming rather than fear the stupidity of developers like I used to.

    Uhmmm.... just temper your exuberance a bit.

    I'm sure a few of these specs are gonna turn out to be OP and incoming nerfs are to be expected. Overall good changes, and I'm happy if even half of them go through.... but I'm not really up for another QQ fest when the 'adjustments' happen.

    These changes turn everythign upside down!
    I hope the possible new specs will deliver more dps then present ones.
    I also hope they will be competitive among each other.

    some tuning is still needed, the increased synergy could make some hybrid build flat-out op and there's still a lot of things that need to be fixed, like the underwhelming combust damage.
    but the reasoning behind those changes is just perfect imho.
