On Leveling a New Mage:

No, I can’t give you food until level 38.

No, I can’t buff int until level 58.

No, I can’t spell steal until level 70.

No, I can’t teleport yet… I get my first self port at level 24.

No, I can’t decurse until level 30.

No, I can’t time warp until level 85.

No, I don’t have an aoe yet – I get arcane explosion at level 22 and blizzard at 52.

No, I’m not lying about not having above things yet.

This alt MAY be more trouble than it’s worth…

  1. Yep, they totally screwed with mage spells. Slowfall, Remove Curse, Arcane Brilliance, and conjured foods are some of the worst/most mindboggling. So many things they pushed out to higher levels for virtually no reason. /sigh

    1. The most annoying part isn’t the lack of spells… it’s the fact that when I instance… or heck just pass through a major city [teleport requests already?!], I will inevitably get a whisper or a party request wanting one of the above. I will about 75% of the time also get called a liar when I respond that I can’t do “x” until level whatever.

  2. as someone who’s main is a mage, every time i re-level one it’s like a game of trying to do the same magethings i normally do without the abilities that make them MAGES 😀 like a puzzle i have to put together really, really slowly.

    i’d imagine as someone who hasnt leveled a billion mages, that’s probably really frustrating >.<

  3. Hehe, fortunately I haven’t had people pestering me about these things, but I’ve been struggling to get used to the new levels for certain abilities myself. If I had a penny for every time I tried to buff myself with arcane intellect pre-58… because it’s such an iconic mage ability and I had it when I first created this character, damn it!

  4. I’ve been WoW free for nearly a year.
    With all the things they’re doing to the game again, I feel no compulsion to start playing again.
    Plus since they won’t allow us to skin the pandas, there isn’t even that extra incentive.
