Warlock vs. Mage in terms of DPS?

#1xVSaNxPosted 11/16/2013 1:33:00 AM
I'm interested in Warlock since they've nerfed Fire Mages into the ground, are Warlocks much better or would it be about the same just a fresh set of spells as an ex-fire mage?

Last I heard Warlocks were doing fairly better DPS than mages, especially destruction. Destruction is more fun than fire IMO. Wayyyy more healing options and HP in general.

Fire nerfed into the ground? That's funny, I don't see any hotfixes today...

5.3 made fire completely gear dependent, which was a nerf to those of us who don't raid normals

warlocks are pretty appealing, I'm really good at mage for a non-guild player, I usually outdps most people in lfr who have superior gear, but if I wanted to jump ship to warlock, this interim between content releases would be the time

my warlock is 80 and i have 6 pieces of timeless gear I could give him, I just dread going from 80-90 again even with the exp nerfs tho it'd give me a good chance to learn to play the class at higher levels

with practice warlocks should easily outdps fire mages while having more survivability and being more fun? tho that's objective

Mage was pretty much ruined this expansion IMO, level 90 talents being a big part of the problem.

destro. dps + huge cooldown list makes it the best leveling spec. anybody who says otherwise is wrong.
