Why do I Love Mage Pvp so Much?

There is a really good reason I love Mage Pvp so much more than other classes.  It all started for me when my first character in World of Warcraft was a human Paladin.  I loved my pally, don’t get me wrong but I struggled to say the least at pvp.  If i specced holy I did great but there is only so much healing one person can do before it really gets boring.  And seriously back in the day even asking to play as a Ret Paladin was like a mortal sin.

So, I rolled a mage with the sole intent of dominating battlegrounds and arena.  It only took me 6 days to get from level 1 – 70 using Zygor’s Leveling Guide.  (Wrath wasn’t out yet)  My first team setup was back in Season 2 and it was Priest, Rogue, Mage.  My priest was actually the alt of my Paladin’s 2v2 Warlock partner.  I mention this because I was playing my alt AND he was playing his.  Our Rogue however was a Grand Marshall and one of the sickest Rogue’s I’ve ever seen.  Anyway, during our very first season we had  a hell of a lot of fun beating up on teams that vastly out-geared us.  It was especially fun to whoop up on our guildies who were playing on their mains lol.

I mean, mages have so many tricks that make them useful in pvp.  Mage Pvp is almost a no brainer (almost).  If you can get the art of kiting down then you can pretty much destroy any melee class and if you can get the LoS tricks down then no other cast will stand a chance against you.  Couple that with some well times polymorphs and counter-spells and its Good Game!  Now, I don’t want to be a jerk but if you can’t break AT LEAST a 2k Arena rating with a mage then perhaps you need to give it up.  Ok, well maybe that’s a bit harsh but seriously if you are struggling and want to take your game to the next level I recommend checking out Pvp Bible.  I’ve been using it for quite a while and although it alone won’t make you a pvp god it certainly will put you on the right track.  I want to say that I shot up like 200 Arena points after reading the thing through.
