Considering rogues are going to be at least 1/4 of the population, and also considering clerics wear chain, can have a shield, and have a role (shaman) that looks like it's going to be an anti-stealth melee type, it really looks like the mages in telara are going to have a pretty rough time.
From what we've seen it doesn't look like the mages will get a defensive/tanking/abletosurviveburstdps role either. With nothing else to feed on but mages and other rogues, if you're planning on being a mage I predict you'll need a friend or two at all times just for intimidation factor.
We still aren't sure how mixed the continents will be or how difficult it is for members of the other faction to make their way into quest/grind areas, but still the mere thought of trying to be a mage on a pvp server gives me the chills.
Who else agrees?
