Re: [BFA] Frost Mage PvE Raiding Guide.

If you pet freeze after launching your GS, unless you are quite far from the target, it's pretty likely your GS will hit first, unless you are very quick. Luckily, pet freeze is off of (your) GCD, so you can cast it during GS if you want. This is what I, and I think most frost mages do: you wait unt...

Re: [BFA] Frost Mage PvE Raiding Guide.

Thus we should use the talent TV instead of Glacial if we have single target? No. Even on one target, GS is top dps by a non-trivial margin. The point I was making here, is that if the GS will split to a second target, then you should fire it off ASAP, with or without a way to shatter it. TV pulls ...

Re: [BFA] Frost Mage PvE Raiding Guide.

You should never cast a Glacial Spike at a single target that you won't be able to shatter, whether it's shattered with a brain freeze proc or through frost nova/pet freeze. So, if you are on a dungeon/raid boss (where you cant freeze targets), and you have 5 icicles and no EB, then yes, you should ...

Re: Glacial Spike - Updated

I think this conflicts with what OP (Razlopp) said. He said to hold flurry if casting frostbolt while at 2+ stacks. This also aligns with the language that is the clearest to me, which I think I read on this thread or somewhere else on altered time: "If the frostbolt you are currently casting will b...

seabreeze proc

Can someone comment on the seabreeze proc/if it is good for frost? I'm not for sure, but I feel like having crit/haste budgeted at the same ilvl would be much better. Also the fact that I cant find anyone near the top of simdps on wowprogress who has seabreeze equipped makes me think this.

Re: Glacial Spike - Updated

@rexdan, this is very important. This combo (frost nova/freeze -> GS) makes up a significant portion of my dps over the course of a dungeon, given that so many mobs can be frozen. It also allows you to be way more aggressive with (i.e. munch fewer of) your BF procs, because you often dont need to sa...

Re: Glacial Spike - Updated

Asking this again (asked during beta on Julia's thread), partly because things may have changed, but mainly because I constantly find myself in this situation and wondering what the best thing is. Lets say you're sitting at 5 icicles, waiting for BF to proc. EB just came off CD, so now you queue EB,...

Re: [BFA] Battle for Azeroth changes overview

Thanks! Followup, I'd assume there's a cancel scenario for EB, yes? That is, if you are on 4 icicles and no BF and EB is off CD, you would frostbolt (5th icicle) -> EB -> GS -> Flurry. However, if you happen to get BF on your fifth icicle frostbolt, then it would be a waste of your EB CD to cast ebo...

Re: [BFA] Battle for Azeroth changes overview

I am wondering if it is ever appropriate to cancel a frostbolt cast. The specific situation I am wondering about is when you are sitting on 5 icicles and EB is off cd, and you're casting several frostbolts in a row waiting to get BF proc. You finally get it, but if you are starting your next cast AS...
