World of Warcraft Mage Guide

By David Piner -

Welcome to the Ten Ton Hammer Mage Guide. If you enjoy calling upon magical forces to crush your foes from a distance this class might be for you. Mages aren’t just good for damage though, they have several other useful talents including crowd controlling enemies and providing food, drinks, and a powerful intellect buff for their allies. As you can see even though the Mage will only ever fill the role of damage dealer, the player who chooses this class will never be bored.
