View Full Forums : Grr... mages again!

Okay, this is pissing me off.

My friend now has 2k fball damage + counterspell, and at 60 he'll be around 4k!

Is dire bear form enough to soak this damage?

10-05-2005, 12:39 PM
Yes Dire Bear will do be fine against it. Granted though, some mages are really good, and Fire Specc'd mages put out alot of DMG upfront, I have managed to survive. Mages have no time to counterspell a Druid unless they see the green glow from casting Nature's Swiftness and respond fast enough to prevent the Instant Rank 10 Nature's Touch following.

Yeah, he claims he's done so much BG he knows where and when "us ****ers" heal.

Mages - the one class I can kill 95% of the time in a duel or normal PvP.

1. If you want to start cat or bear go ahead, more often than not I like to get a moonfire on them early

2. Soon as the Pyro is spent (if they have some fire talents), start healing - Rejuv then Regrowth.

3. If he CS's you during the first Regrowth, Bear form / charge / bash - now the CS is up and you can heal again.

Heal early and often against mages, pretty much against any class. Healing mana pool > Damage mana pool any day.

What if they CS NS?

I'm not specc'd resto, but I would guess NS to be a nature spell, I would still drop an MF and bear to soak the damage. BTW, did you ever get your rig hooked up Starfire?

NS = Nature's Swift. Teh instantz heal spell buff.

Hook what?

I'm gonna guess you mean my account. =p

Yeah, my friend says he set it up so I'll be on Bonechewer on Zephyrus (elf priestess) or Zephyras (elf druid). I will be on hopefully all day saturday doing stuff with Astrel.

Rig = Computer

Did you get the computer set up? NE are good fun. I love their starting area. I would be a lot farther with my druid if I hadn't gone back and made a NE Rogue, NE Priest, and NE Warrior and played them to 15 or so. I really just enjoy Teldrassil in general. Very foresty, etc.

I will run to stormwynd before I get too pissed at the quests in beginning area.

I always do!

WTF?! I don't know about everyone else, but it is the frost/arcane mages that jack me up.

My friend has a blend of arcane and fire, he's got just the right skills to massacre.... not to mention evocate, mana jade, and a dagger/orb combo that gives another 1600 mana.
