    My mage is level 22 now. For the most part, it's been very fun. However, I had a little period during level 21 where I had some serious surviability issues. I knew goign in I would need to avoid taking hits, and I knew I wouldn't be "survivable" in general.

    I just started havign really more serious problems than normal. I know this could be because I need to L2P a mage :-). I did start throwing a lot more mana shield into my usual routine, for mobs with ranged attacks, and it helps a little.

    The point is this. I was trying to have a 60 before the expansion, and you can see this guy is already a good ways along. Is there anyone here who thinks I should roll up a different class and start working on that? Should I stick it out with my mage?

    Thanks in advance guys.

    EDIT: I should note that my second choice for a class, at this point, probably woudln't get me to 60 before the expansion.

    Well hard for me to know what you need to L2P without knowing what you're doing currently. What situations are you finding difficult?

    Physical ranged attackers are really a huge difficulty at the moment.

    Mana shield absorbs physical range and prevents spell interruptions against those attacks while active.

    When I started using that, things got better. I guess this really is just a little slump and I should probably stick to mage :-)

    It's also worth noting that physical ranged attacks have a minimum range. Something a clever mage can use to his/her advantage. (Like owning Hunters in PvP... oh yeah Haite I'm talking to you, arenas are coming biotch.)

    Thanks everyone.

    I'm stickign with the mage.

    1. It's my best chance to get to 60 before the expansion.
    2. I grew out of a little n00bness from the past few days and started using more of my spells, more running around, better escaping, and I just leveled to 24 and got counterspell.

    Anyway, it's fun again and looking up. I'm obviously no expert yet, but I'm starting to play it better :-)
