With the push to give wizards a "heroic" option, wizards are increasingly more durable... but wizards do not obtain a comparable weakness or vulnerability as a price for this increased durability.
That's how I like to play too: I am fine with a weak-defense wizard summoning a shield, and mounts are great, but I feel like once I've dismounted and isolated the wizard, I should have a decent chance of killing him. I am ok with Heroic wizard, and the magic-robes wizard is great now, but I've never liked the wizard with a ton of defense: once he casts shield he's a tank, very difficult to kill.b
