Topic Frost vs Arms
It's is nearly impossible to kill a frost mage in 1v1 as an arms warrior.
If you charge, they blink, If you heroic leap, they frost nova or cone of cold or deep freeze, or pet freeze, see, they have so many stuns in place,
My friend is ally and im horde on a pala (3k resil) of myne, we did 1v1. He hitted 20k crit and 10k small with his Ice Lance on me: No cooldown: No casting time : !SPAM IT!
We always do arena with eachother, and when we are skyping, he is like
Yeah! 40k 30k! - Against a frost death knight (well geared )...
Why is this? i only do MAX 20k on a death knight, he does tons and tons...+ His slows & stuns...
Frostbolt: Slow effect: Ranged : 8 seconds slow no Cooldown
Deep Freeze: 30 seconds Cooldown
Frost Nova: About 10 or 15 seconds cooldown?
Cone of Cold: 10 or 15 seconds cooldown?
Pet freeze: 20 seconds cooldown?
Throwdown: 45 seconds cooldown
Fear: 2 Minutes cooldown
Hamstring: No cooldown: Melee range ( If you got talent he will be stuck to the ground)
+ Mages Ice Barrier & Mana shield, My friend has 22k Ice Barrier and 10k Mana Shield = 32k!? : Ice Barrier sometimes spawns itsself. 20 seconds cooldown. Mana shield also 20 seconds (I think).
So unfair isn't it?
Does Blizzard loves mages or so?...?
Thanks for understanding my frustration...
Yes, but mages are way to OP in BG's too...
In arena when you do 2v2, your team mate dies, and hes team mate is also dead... than you could just forfeit...
On my realm, all mages think they are 'the baws' the MAN!
If you decline their duels, they are like, i get it, your a **** or a ****** or so...
I don't want this, and im not the only one... they are nearly immortal...
My friend can do 2v1 for real...
Why can't you just nerf the shield and the slows/stuns...I don't like it... at all..
Frost Nova: 20 seconds
Cone of Cold: 8 seconds
Pet freeze: 30 seconds

You used to be an immortal frost mage, but then you took an arrow to the knee? Trololo :D
To Sevre: I just like logic of ppl complaining about frost mages for example. "Zomg he does 30k crits and I do only 20k zomg nerf, that is not fair". Then I look them up on the armory. No enchants, gemming pure resilience, 10 arenas played for the entire season, no rating (never). Maybe you should try to learn your class, regem your gear towards strength, use enchants, use ebonsteel belt buckle and learn to press your trinket when you can really use it to nuke your opponent. Same for your fellow mage friend.
I know warrior isn't that good these days, but in your case with your rating etc. it is just l2p issue + not enough "care" about your character.
