Even we, the elite of the arcane, masters of fire, have our dirty little secrets.
And where better to admit them then here?
We only drop Refreshment Tables in battlegrounds because we’re too lazy to summon our own food and water.
Then, we click them as fast as possible, to empty the table in seconds. Then, we delete all the manna biscuits, besides the ~100 we need, and then blame the hunter next to us for draining the table.
At this point, we tell everyone else that its on cooldown, sorry they missed the biscuits.
The only reason we spec frost to level is because frostbolt makes a really cool noise when you shoot it.
We cast Blizzard on the melee in the Shade of Aran fight, and see how many panic and run out.
We go an entire raid casting only Scorch, because we’re playing on a laptop and watching a Zombie movie with our friends.
We always spellsteal a Paladin’s “Wings” because, quite frankly, they look better on a mage.
We all secretly wish we had rolled gnome mages.
We all have an inexplicable loathing of retribution Paladins.
If anyone gets mind controlled in a raid, we will do our utmost to kill that person as fast as possible.
If we see a warrior pop Spell Reflect, we cast Polymorph to get a free heal.
We ninja killing blows in battlegrounds with Fireblast.
We will gladly cast Pyroblast on level 1 critters to pad our WWS damage reports.
We all secretly lust for female dranei.
We all have warlock alts.
We love to ride at about 110-120% threat to make the tanks sweat.
We secretly love to be turned into Little Red Riding Hood.
When blizzard stopped letting us summon Portals to Capital Cities in battlegrounds, we mages wept.
Dropping somebody to 1% in a battleground, then casting slow on them and melee’ing them turns us on.
Wehn we meet hunters in a battleground, we take pleasure in killing the pet then running away. Ice blocking, jumping off a cliff, whatever, so the hunter cannot kill us. Then we do it again a few minutes later.
We heal the other side in battlegrounds.
We break our own sheeps and blame someone else. After all, what kind of mage breaks their own sheep? Right?
Restoration druids make us cry.
We use Ice Block at 1% just to be a prick.
We keep polymorph right next to the Arcane Power + Trinket + Presence of Mind + Frostbolt + Icy Veins macro, so people will know how awesome I am… by accident.
We spec to get Imp. Flame Ward, and then run around FRAPSing ourselves reflecting Fire spells.
We all break out into a cold sweat when we’re low on Teleportation Runes.
We love to sheep sheep.
