Wow in Real Life: Mages

Mages are a wonderful class to apply this to. In fact, they are probably the best class to pick. I say that because they are a self-reactive, spell-casting class. Most of what they do is a standard ability, but they have many cooldowns and procs that they need to react to and take into account.

The mage ability I would want most would be Presence of Mind. It just lets you do something instantly. Boom done. Now, with the 10-second restriction in place it limits alot, but you can just get something done. This is a modified version of the DK's Unholy Presence. Instead of everything being slightly faster. One thing is completely faster.

Second, I would take Mirror Image. You need another set of hands? Well, take four. And the bodies that go with them. Now, your copies are not bright, and they don't copy you- they just spam one spell over and over again.

Thirdly I would choose Invisibilty. Invisibility is very useful- but it is very situational as it only lasts for 20 seconds. You could dash from one hiding spot to another and then wait while the CD wore off, but it would be very time consuming.

Next on the list is Blink. Its not nearly as good as true teleportation, but it would come in handy. You wouldn't have to worry about crossing streets and if you were playing football, you'd get disqualified immediately.

Finally, I chose Slow Fall. I chose slow fall, because it would allow you to do many gimmicky things- such as jump off the Empire State Building and cast it at the last second. The reagent is a light feather, and since those aren't hard to find- just grab one off a pigeon- you should never have a problem. Also you don't need to hold the feather, just have it in your pocket or bags.

I'm not quite sure about the order because all of these are fantastic for use- let me know what you think.
