For good reason. The class has been getting the smelly end of the stick for most of EQ, even after the 12 years of meleequest when the devs finally figured out that a fantasy game shouldn't be so anti-magic. I can't even remember the last time i saw a wizard top parse. Every other "DPS class" can do it, some more than others. But those other classes have utility and armour and buffs that flesh out their classes. Wizards only DPS. Not saying they should be able to one-hand beat the other classes while watching soap operas, or that the others shouldn't get their time in the spotlight. But any balance scheme you want to make up has the wizard squeezing water from stones while the other classes cup overfloweth. If you are adjusting wizard DPS then you need to put them on the top of the DPS pyramid as a general rule of thumb. For most of EQ you have put the wizard under the pyramid. Give us all a break. The most obviously easy class to tune, and yer trying to do it with a rusty chainsaw.
