The way i see it the only use a support mage has to you is to be able to get you back into the battle ( so that you don't have to run all the way back to bowl or ob ) the second after you died so you can go steal some of your lost np's back. Or to keep you from losing the precious ofcourse ...I've played a mage ice nd I did pk with a mage ice and I think i have some fraps somewhere in my disk doing 10vs3 nd shits like that
1 war+ 1 priest+1 warrior, and trust me when a support mage is A GOOD ONE he wont need ice too much.
I'm talking about months ago, in logos before this gay patch... when my brother played IceTime...
I suppose you mean by this that the mage has hp / ac pumped, agreed by doing so he can run around like a headless turkey and tp his killed teammates back ... and thats it, cuz he doesn't need ice right? the whole freaking idea of a support mage was behind the ability to slow, and tp'ing fallen comrades back. Slow so you can keep that pesky big warrior away from your friend the rouge while he's going afther the enemies mage? Slow the party chasing you so you can run ahead a bit and tp your party over there to whoop there ass? YES, thats a support mage.
a nice mage, isn't only if he can slow everyone it means helps doing tp, running away nd tp people who is dieing and ofc using his nova/blizar when is possible.
and thus ice'ing them? yeah indeed, tp run and ICE ... take the ice away and waw, such a fun time beeing a mage huh?
seems like you have never played with a goooood ice mage support.
MOST mages likes this new ice than works 100% because most of them are papers, or using complete/crimsong and most on mp whatever
at least, my brother with his mage icetime on logos , lvl 70 , points exactly for wear crimsom and rest in hp .
Lets see, support ice mage stats for crimson and glacier erion, yeh u got that right, good job. However thanks to the higher slow rate, ice mages no longer have to purely hp build to even have a chance at surviving in the cz ... When the rate was lower and you were an ice mage most of the time slow failed, which means you got smacked around allot => hp build. Now we can switch to doing some damage, getting some kills, having fun like we would on fire or light ... All it does is making the game more balanced for ice mages, who can finnaly be more than a rag doll to be beaten around and tp his dead buddies back. ( no offence to the support ice mages out there, you guys really are a great asset to a pk party )
that's a good mage support.
You should have played with him , so you can know what means a good ice mage support and realize ice isn't everything and realize you don't need than your ice works 100% for helps alot in a party.
I'm not crying anyway , I can live with it but k2 failed changing ice rate too much... it was like 30-40% but now its 100% -_- even a lvl 45 mage who made his account some hours ago can slow you -__-
and? does that keep you from killing him 1 hit? NO! Can he kill u while ur slowly walking at him? NO ... there we go, matter dealt with
forgot ice blade works now too =(
Doesn't lightning blade stun too? Its only natural that ice blade slows then ...
FFS people just realize this, all the ice attacks of an ice mage do is keeping you still. They won't be the ones killing you, their party members will, and for that they have to come upclose, resulting in a man to man fight again. If ur good u'll win, if u suck meh die! If u run solo , then stop beeing so stupid to charge a mage head on where he can see you coming, we have no eyes in the back of our virtual heads, ... go go ? I've seen several rouges adapting to current pk styles, they always come at me in a big big arch around my nova's ...
