    Default New Mage soul being released soon.

    Confirmed by Elrar on livestream. He said it'll happen in the next couple weeks, and all of the new souls will be presented by some development team members. Keep a look out on the livestreams.

    I missed the livestream ._. Annoying off-hours for us europeans xD Remembered it far too late and decided to wait for the upload rather than to jump into the middle of everything.

    Looking forward to hearing more about the souls Thankfully I am subscribed to twitch tv's mailservice so I get a nudge when they start (next time I'll have my phone nearby so I can hear the ping from my mail).

    It's probably a mage tank soul. I just know it.

    While I certainly hope that's the case, I'm down for almost whatevs. Just if it's another support or pet soul, it had better be damn good. In any case it does feel good knowing that we'll get to meet our 9th soul (10th if you count Archmage) soon rather than "soon". Such a huge difference those quotation marks make.

    Would be great if we didn't have to use 1 of 2 specs to survive more than a 2 shot

    OMG. I think you figured it out. Took what ... 3 secs or so ? "everyone complaining about mage survivability" ... "tank soul"

    That might actually work if dots did any damage, if they buffed dots (in pvp) - could even up a few specs

    That's actually half the reason a lot of people have been so vocal about getting a tanking soul. Not necessarily so we can tank in PvE (although that's my motivation) but so we can solo on par with other classes and have the potential for improved survivability in PvP.
    Nope.

    Mages need more survivability in PvP? I didn't notice.

    If it was a tank soul I hope it's completely useless in PvP, I couldn't imagine anything being more boring than trying to "tank" in pvp
    it is not enough these days to question authority, you gotta speak with it too

    PVP. Thats what I am interested in. I just hope that whatever they improve or introduce, and not just soul wise< will equal for pvp and pve. Not everyone wants to pve. So lets hope its balanced unlike how it is or was with relic weapons etc.

    Now a tanking Mage would be cool imo. We will have to see I guess. I would like to see some kind of rogue mage combo. Anything to keep folks interested.

    When warrior tanks with 2-3x our health hits us for just as much if not more than we hit them in pvp, we need either a huge damage increase (which would make us horribly OP against anything else) or a decent mitigation buff.

    Do not agree.

    We need to have the ability to cast our skills (which, at the same time, does not mean to be more tanky) and excluding pyro specs since they can fast cast. Melee mobility needs to be toned down, but that, everyone already knows it. At the same time, toning down melee mobility means we need to nerf other abilities across all classes, so it's more complicated than it seems. Just doing that would help a lot for us to cast spells instead of *farting* them.

    Totally agree with you on that one.
