This isn't inherently true. Most older players are ice and most newer players are fire. That is the real distinction, at least on my server. Ice needed to lock 210 205 edls as well. All in all it comes down to what clas you prefer. fire has higher DPS but lower hits.

No you won't. Ice mage and fire mage with same gear equivalents on a boss with equal resists, fire mage wins that match up the skills reload double as fast as ice ones and do much more than half the damage.

^sadly true^
Back when I played they were basically equal, but then some unknown update came that made all attunes faster, and made firebolt instant cast again, but nothing was done to complement ice. So yes, fire is totally better now, except maybe in pvp.

Make ice great again...

My server doesn't really have a powerhouse EG Icemage atm. We had one building up but she quit early on into EG, had a second and he quit a bit ago, so we are on our third atm lol... She's good, but not as good as the other two yet due to item scarcity so idrk how bad the disparity between ice and fire is amongst closely geared mages.

Does anyone play on a server with a powerhouse fire and ice mage??

We have 5 dg mages, 3 ice and 2 fire. Last Halloween event, Osan kills were sorta equal between ice and fire mages and a dps druid even got one kill. Banebrands kills are also sometimes ice or fire mage kill, can't really say it favors one type or the other.

Guess it all depends on lucky crits. Before crits, fire mages always outdps ice mages, but when ice mages crit for 30-36k often, they're hard to beat.

Wouldn’t fire mages be criting more frequently as fire skills have faster recast times? Coupled with recast reductions you’d always be using a skill.

Crits are random. I could go for 20+ casts and not see a crit on my fire mage and someone else can crit 5x in 20 casts. You really can't measure crit damage as it's not a constant/fixed rate.
