    Default Mage crystals... u srs bro?

    Warlock -
    2x: Crit chance +10% on all DoT abilities. (that's ~260 spell crit for DoT abilities, btw)
    4x: Defile increases mage's crit damage by 30% for 20 seconds.

    So a straight-up massive DPS increase from 2x and a straight-up 100% uptime 30% increase to crit damage for 4x.

    Hokay........ .........

    Necro -
    2x: Pet crits -> +75 SP to mage
    4x: Lich form duration +10s, cooldown - 30s

    Once again, 2 direct HUGE DPS increases. Lich form lasts for 30s on a 2m cooldown. That's a 25% uptime. New metric is 40s up on a 1:30 cooldown, that's 40/90 or 44% uptime.

    I must ask....

    WHAT. THE. ****?

    That is all, thanks.

    Yeah, now their DPS might approach other classes*. THE HORROR!

    For the 5 mages that will get the full sets/crystal this year.

    Yes they are awesome, but you fail to realize that you need to be in your PvE gear to do that. You still won't be able to kill a full P6 person even with all that stuff (maybe so, but you won't survive if he does attack you).

    I find the Archon one to be the most fascinating. 40 SP per aura up = +200 SP permanently.

    Yep, several other souls are just as stupid. This isn't a PvP conversation, though. These are absolutely insane buffs. Every single one for clerics is horribly terrible.

    We're still going to take all them cloths gear.

    At least you get an option for a healing crystal. The chloro one is garbage.

    Taking cloth gear means you won't even get to use the cleric crystals ;) And at least the Druid one is useful (and cab if you go cabalist for whatever reason). And you'll never take the cloth gear from mages in my raids.

    Yep the mage crystals are good, no doubt about it. It's going to be great, may put us back where we're supposed to be.

    The chloro one is junk though, and the pyro one is pretty meh by the looks of it too, but I can't complain given how good some such as the sc and archon ones are.

    Oh hey, mages actually have something to look forward to now. Unless Trion listens to all the complaints and nerf these too.

    I can already see the warfronts get flooded with hammerknell geared people.

    Make synergy crystals for PvP, please.

    doubt it. only a few guilds on each shard will have the means to do the zone. most pve raids guilds dont waste time pvping either. you will see a few but alot are getting gear for alts from raid rifts and other lower tier raid content when not doing a scheduled progression raid.

    as far as pvp raiders not many would want to trade off thier pvp gear. also i think progression is slower on pvp shards but am not sure on this.

    either way you will not see much in warfronts for a very long time.

    I think that's subjectional. On my battle group, there are quite a few people running around with relics, and I know on my server there are 5-6 guild that have the Tier 1 raid content down, so I'm sure they'll be hitting Hammerknell.

    Anyway, there should still be PvP synergy crystals, and you need rank 7 gear (you know, so PvP gear can keep up with hammerknell gear) to obtain the bonuses. I also believe 1.4 is suppose to have a havey PvP impact (maybe more warfronts or something), but I think they'll be adding a new rank to obtain, with new gear, and hopfully we'll get synergy crystals. That, or in 1.5.
