For the Mages, you guys have a new place to call home.

Look no further than Magecraft.

Wanted to drop by with a quick note from a guildie. He’s hard at work building a community with a few other Mages and could use a community hand. I know the chances of Mages reading this blog are slim to none, but perhaps you can direct your Mage guildies be they varsity or new to this young and fledgling discussion board.

This is from Dan (one of the brains behind it) himself:

For the last couple of years playing WoW as a Mage their has always been something that has been missing from the community. The gap I felt was due in large part because their really isn’t much support for new Mages, as well as a place for discussion for ‘veterans’.

The mage forums are okay at best, most of the threads end in a ridiculous flame war over stupid issues.  I’m attempting to remedy those problems by releasing a site similar to MainTankadin, Plus Heal and

MageCraft is currently being worked on, feel free to drop by, ask questions, contribute, or just chat about recent achievements with your Mage.

Since I don’t have a Mage of my own nor do I have any desire for one, I may not be able to contribute as much as I’d like. But I do plan on lurking and sneaking around like any Dwarf Priest would.

Anyway, do register and do ask questions. Dan’s a truly stellar Mage (along with the other Mages in Conquest). One of the top Arcanists I’ve had the pleasure of saving from various falling objects of black circles on the ground since he never makes me regret it.

  2. Sounds great! I always want to level a mage, but I never seem to find the time or the desire. Maybe this will spur me to it eventually.

    the biggest problem I have with EJ is that it isn’t ‘noob’ friendly. Most players don’t have the time to read through a 70 page mega thread to learn what they are seeking. The problem is that EJ doesn’t account from level 1 to 1 year into raiding. Don’t get me wrong, the theory crafting generated and in depth discussion at EJ’s forums is great, but a community that helps out the new guy is really needed.

    With all due respect, what’s wrong with the Elitist Jerks Mage forum? ( )

    Of all the classes, Mages are one of the classes that have the most complete community (theorycrafting, ideas, etc.) over at EJ. Threads for each major spec, one for simple questions, and even one about Mage-specific add-ons.

  5. Matticus,

    Don’t count your blog short. I am a non-raiding mage that reads your blog. I enjoy hearing about a world I will never experience (both healing and raiding).

    I’ll check the new site out, thanks!

    Thanks for the heads-up Matt. Always good to see another useful Mage site around (some of the best have gone to the wayside).

  7. Hey matticus,
    Do you have any idea why magecraft closed or if it has moved elsewhere?
