    Default Mage DPS is like "Throwing Potato's"

    Is it me or did Mage get nerfed so hard it will be unplayable? Why did mage even get nerfed with Warrior and Primalist still killing it? Just needed to vent, now back to throwing potato's.

    3) ?????

    Mage always has long streaks of Harb or bust. What's so surpassing about this.

    While I agree we need more soul variety being viable, mages weren't just nerfed because 'lol eff mages' I believe one of our abilities were triggering twice when it wasn't supposed to. They reduced some of the RNG and removed some damage to compensate. And this is just Elementalist. The RNGesus spec was super broken, no way we were meant to do 600k-1mil DPS in pre-raid gear. The raids are being designed for 300k DPS benchmark according to the livestreams.

    I tweaked my RNGesus spec and still pulled like 200k when the update dropped. And my gear isn't that great.

    Learn a few specs, do some parses, and post the results. Explain which specs they are and prove their DPS is potato by having others play the specs as well to prove it's not just you. Even if you don't compile the data, they have tools that track that kind of thing.

    I don't think the word 'bottom' means what you think it means.

    Pyro using a decent rotation should be at least 20% ahead of any similarly-geared ranged Rogue or Cleric. Melee, Warrior and Primalist are different stories.

    And, if you want more DPS, go Harb as many others have said.

    The truth of the matter is Mage requires a PhD in rocket science and two keyboards side by side for the 256 button rotation as a DPS...

    Sarcasm aside, Pyro is doing well but you'll hafta monitor several buffs and icd's to get performance. It's somewhat complicated and movement impacts output. Hard is the other soul that we are permitted to use.

    I refuse to DPS with my mage these days and only play it for tanking.

    It's more like throwing powder puffs lately.
    I'll gladly DPS with one of my alts but the Mage is parked for the time being.

    Perhaps delete all of the non viable souls or scale em properly, Trion.
    Balance is low on the list at the same time.

    Would love to know which mage this is as there are only a handful capable of 784k pure ST dps on NA I'm also guessing there was a giant skill gap between the Mage and other dps as an equally geared sin, tempest or w.e the vorpal salvo primalist abomination is should outperform a mage on pure single target

    If devs said they want us at 300k dps, expect more nerfs
    To be fair all classes will probably be nerfed if the devs really aim for 300k dps
