Will today's patch make mages happy ?

#1
We’re releasing a patch for the game today, which brings an end to the Summer Event and also introduces some more changes for Mages.

Please note that whilst we patch the game there may be some server disruption.

Changes include:
The Summer Event is now at an end:
The Crookback and Faerie charm vendors have left Farcrag Castle
The Flying Carpet vendor has also left Farcrag Castle
The Sunstones and the Sun Mask quest have been removed
The Sunflower Wand quest has been removed
The Summer Dragons and members of the Cult of the Moon have been made into extra rare mobs
Quests:
The pies received from Gaston the Chef are now no-trade
The top tier pies that Gaston the Chef hands out are now more rare
Mages:
The following skills now use 30% less energy at high skill levels:
Fire Bolt
Ice Shards
Incinerate
Firestore
All Lures
Energy Boost has been significantly reworked to provide more energy when a player has more Focus
Increased the Focus component power of Incinerate by 66%
Increased the Focus component power of Firestorm by 50%
Added a larger Focus component to Sacrifice
Halved the recast time of Lure
Reduced the recast time of Ice Shards by 1 second

I figured I would repost patch notes since thread is locked.

It seems like we can call this the Mage patch, but will this make high level mages happy ? I doubt it. Mages want to out dps rogues and rangers and forgo the support roll that otm has put them in .

But let me get this straight, in the last week mages have had recast times reduced, and spell costs reduced as well as what seems to be significant mana management upgrades.

I hope this makes all the mages happy.

Clearly if a class complains enough otm will make changes.

Yeah, but is it worth it? The class was broken and in a bad way. Also, look how long they complained just for "some" changes to be made. Of course there will be some that complain, but majority will welcome it with open arms. They didn't just pick mage moves, they picked the ones that are mostly used and reworked them.

Great changes, they should make a difference. I don't think it will completely solve the problems but it will make them much less painful to deal with.
