    We all know gos is getting nerfed. Even the mages in my guild are okay with it and feel the inevitable coming. Let's move past the pyro train now.

    Not true, my buddy quit and I tried his 50 mage for fur BGs with mostly success. I had to respec cuz he hadnt played it since 1.1, and I never played mage at any lvl. I set up some bars in like 5 minutes, and mostly spammed fireballs inside my GoS. Anyway I did pretty good. That's with no real clue how to play them, and using maybe 3 spells. In fact I noticed that while I didn't lead any of the four BGs I entered, I beat every rogue in KB and damage except one match a Sab did beat me in damage, but i still managed 9 KB with fireballs, and GoS! I never used the temps, or the thing to reset your cooldowns, or anything complicated (I didn't know what they were even called at first).I mean you just stand there and cast, it's pretty simple. I wasn't a great mage in 5 minutes, but I was decent, lol.

    You think a mage having never played a rogue could do the same?

    I disagree having tried both at 50. Mage is really easy right now to just jump on with no exp whatsoever and do well. In fact you can do very well just using 2 or 3 abilities. Turret yourself in a good spot, and mow 'em down. It's incredibly simple. I was killing rogues after 5 minutes on a 50 mage, and I'd literally blow them up faster than they could approach me. I didn't even have to worry about the normally AWFUL CC in the WFs. Not flaming mages, just saying it was very much easy mode.

    Spam Fb/fast cast/instants until proc
    Instant cinder
    Fulminate when you really want lulz

    I was going to play the toon but decided not to in the end. My buddy's mage is on Molinar, and is Rank1. My rogue and warrior are on Deepstrike, and rank 5 for the rogue, so i just figured I'd keep playing on Deepstrike.

    I don't know why you think I'd make it up? I'm not even screaming for nerfs or QQing, I'm just making a statement that a mage is fairly easy to grasp mechanics-wise. Is it really hard to believe that? Credibility? Have you tried a 51 point pyro spec? Have you played a warrior or rogue at 50? Again I'm not flaming, or trolling, but pyro can be played really with just a couple spells, and still own most people in a WF. Maybe I'll get back on that account today if it's still going and post some screenies, but what's the point? You throw down GoS, you tab, you nuke. You don't think you can kill most folks like that with a 51 pyro build? I think I went with 51 pyro, 10 warlock, 5 archon? Not exactly sure now, but I didn't even read any thing on forums about specs, i just briefly looked at the trees and stuck the points in places that made sense. No biggie man, but 51 pyro is very, very basic. I don't think i liked it, tbh.

    There is a HUGE difference between FIVE charges AND a Detonate doing 3kish and an INSTANT 5k......A HUGE DIFFERENCE.

    again im not seeing the 4 dead rogues?

    And rogues detonate were doing more than 3k with the damage buff. Much like fulminate with damage buff hitting for 5k now. Its karma baby.
