I think that if you go into Classic with minimized expectations you will have a good time.

Ugh, you suck Stfuppercut, I hate this sentiment. Can't I just want a true recreation of Vanilla - damnit!

Anyway, I'm over the layering discussion well and truly, I'm 5 drinks into my night and I just want to talk shit about druid builds, beta stuff, hybrid builds etc. How about we reassess the effects of layering when either Blizz come out with some solid details on combatting the abuse of layering, or once the game has launched and we are knee deep in layering?

Deal. Though, I don't think I will be around here often when Classic comes out... I will be... very... very... preoccupied. I actually applaud @teebling for having beta access and still being such an active part of the forum.

C'mon dude, you gotta stick around. I have set it on my 'Daily' bookmarks folder to open when I get to work, or when I get home, which prompts me to read/respond.

I really do not want to engage in the Layering War but this looks just as bad as some feared:

Back to topic: I think with some entrepreneurship and research you can always aoe farm as mage.

Did a full 20-60 aoe farm on a kind of ptr and it works great.
Stfuppercuts first post already had good insight, aoe farming is mostly doing some good pulls and some necessary supporting pulls.

In addition

  • Find out which pulls YOU can do, mimicking YouTube guides doesn't always work
  • Look for area with low quest density and camps of melee mobs
  • Don't forget to try dungeons too, like deep borers in Mara or Lashers in DME

    It will be lees the matter of contested areas and more of the matter that level 20 for AOE is not very efficient. You risk a lot more trying to pull mobs prior to 40 because a mount lets you group mobs a lot easier without taking much damage. Additionally, you wont have talents like Ice Barrier until level 40 which will help keep you from being interrupted as well as the ability to grab a bunch of mobs without taking much damage. Anything is possible on a mage but it might not be as efficient as you hope it to be.
