Class Wars is finally here after a week-long delay! There are a few things I like to think about for each one, which I'll talk about here. Sorry in advance that this is mage-focused, but since it's my main toon class, that's just how it's going to be. Please enlighten me about what archers and knights do to prepare for Class Wars ^^
First thing I'll need to adjust are my resistances. Usually I only protect against dark, light, and electric, but I think against other mages I'm going to forgo light and add in some fire and wind.
I've opened all five of the battle protection shields available, but for those with fewer, I'd give this some careful thought. A good question to start with is, "What scares me the most?" (My answer is relatively simple -- Annerose :P -- object of all my mage-envy haha)
I also want to adjust my astrals a bit. I'm not a huge fan of the Deflection astral yet, but its PvP prowess has become a bit undeniable. I've considered taking out either Illusion or Block, but I'm leaning toward Illusion.

Here's my Hades, Franziskaner, what a handsome wheat beer. Though once he becomes Aegis I might change the name to Franzia, because she looks like a glass of cheap wine xD
Last, and certainly most mind-boggling to me, are skill and rune choices.
Below is my old standby. However, the new tie-breaker if neither person wins after 2.5 minutes is total damage-dealt, instead of most HP left -- I think it's time to pick something a little more aggressive.
|Have used this for months now, but it's a typically conservative mage CW spec.|
It's pretty much impossible to have everything you want in a spec, but at the moment I'm leaning toward giving up Suntoria and using heal/amnesia for runes.
That's all I've got! Good luck everyone! Here's hoping lol ^^
