What you need to know about Mage/Rogue

Mage/Rogue is probably the most popular double DPS comp. With a solid damage output (insane mage burst options) and heavy control chain, RM always was considered as the best double DPS for 2v2 arenas. Nonetheless, it suffers a lot against multiple top-tier team compositions such as Rogue/Druid or Lock/Druid. For this reason, RM cannot be considered as a Tier 1 combo. Nonetheless, with no doubt, many RM might reach Gladiator ranks, especially in season 1.

It’s a matter of preference, but the popular shadowstep rogue build is a good pick.
Depending on the season, and the meta, you can also opt for the Shadowstep with Improved EA Build.
