"OMG AV, We have nerfed every possible way out of mages but they're still pvping. NERF RAYS KTHXBYE".
Seriously, now that people have more health... turn mages how they were pre-patch. This ray shit is a waste of my grinding time and a global cooldown will most likly kill this game.
Today ive been rolling as an archer just because im not spening 500k on leveling rays "like my nukes" to have them nerfed randomly because of QQ kiddies cant aim a fucking bow.
All R50 nukes, Useless
R90's to some extent, useless
Magma storm, useless.
Bolts consuming mana quickly + parry, useless
Now if even a 0.5 global cooldown on rays was inplace, it would be easier rolling in high gear as an archer for the same damage. There is no reward for being a mage other than Stormblast, WOF, Come hither, buffs. Considering it costs 1mil+... there is no value to it. Anyone who honestly thinks otherwise needs to grow the fuck up because the world doesnt revolve around some 17yearold stoner kid who wants to melee in every game.

If you can aim a nuke as well as you can aim a bow, you have nothing to worry about and there is no "nerf"
A gravesong does more damage than a fireball, THUS THE AOE. Aiming has nothing to do with it. It costs you to lv intensify, the spell to 75-surging after lving other spells to get it that high. Add another 4 schools exactly the same... it costs weeks if not months + asstons of gold just to do less than bow damage but have a AOE.
A archer user can archer while getting gold and be maxed masterys in 1-2 days of casual play.

So do I .. NOM NOM NOM NOM!
A gravesong does not do more damage than a 1.0 damage staff (keened corpsecall) and if I'm not mistaken the corpsecall costs about half the price of a gravesong.
Maybe you should stop being a mage that uses deer sticks?

we know we know you spent tons and tons of time on your toon, think about the population and the game's success for once.

If half of you fucking nut cupping warrior fags thought of the game instead "wahhh he is beating me" we wouldn't be in this situation. Want proof? After every nerf... there is always a 20 page thread 2 hours later about another mage nerf aka rays.
I just hope I get to see one of these machine gun rays before its gone. :/

Fucking lame AV.
The way we roll.
Its really fun to kill mobs now with spells, need to aim really carefully to get direct hit for max dmg. Some mobs are dancing way too much and slower spells/big nukes aoe doesnt do really any dmg. They need to fix it for PVE asap i dont mind about pvp changes.

PvE still needs more variation and a better AI to make it as challenging as PvP.

its harded to hit r50s than arrows because they are slow and more luck plays a role because you have to predict which can be countered easily...

dotn even need the rays !
I semi-agree with you here. It all depends on the range. With my bow it's also guessing and predicting in which direction someone is going and this is the reason why a lot of people have problems hitting each other while they're 2 meters away from each other let alone if the range is bigger.

I agree that it's harder but not extremely to hit people on shorter/medium range precisely with magic due the slowness. However I still think the nerf still needs some tweaking here and there for me PvP got way better (Skill wise, Length wise and Fun Wise).
