Mage DPS: Firestaff and Ice gauntlet is currently the worst class in game in pvp, (wars and OPR) , the hardest to equip, the rarest in high pvE modes, the most expensive, the least one in armour diversity (you must run light to have escape and some dmg), the so called STAT PADD, off meta class, 0 utility. that’s people say about it.
It has been like this since the huge nerfs the class got early , then has been nerfed somehow everypatch.
NOT a single word about us mages in DEV UPDATE, just 1: nerf flamethrower, just because a no skilled guy cannot beat 3 good players , not even mages, with flamethrower. This is unbelievable. There are 100000…x forum threads about us on forum, social media, discord channels and we received 0 answer, 0 support, 0 reply by devs.
You find it hard even beating a brimstone archer.
in my personal opinion:
FIRESTAFF - ICE GAUNTLET MAGE DPS needs buff, needs rework, int weapons should be based on INT builds, not abused by other attribute weapons such as dex, str etc… ice gauntlet i currently used as a secondary weapon coz of its utility defensive tools, make it a primary weapon. there ARE TONS OF IDEAS ON FORUM, THOUSANDS!
THEY SAID THEY LISTEN, I HOPE THEY DO NOW FINALLY AND THEY GIVE US AN ANSWER IN THE NEXT NOVEMBER DEV UPDATE!
