Re: Glacial spike shatter

Notice the fight was stormwall. Are you too close to the boss?
GS has a minimum range (~8 yds) where it wont shatter.

Re: Ebonbolt usage with Glacial Spike

Using Ebon on CD except when you have 4+ icicles is a very slight dps increase. Probably around ~0.3%.
It's not a big swing either way. If you prefer to have Ebon as backup, you could hold it and there wouldn't be too much difference.

Re: GS not top DPS talent anymore?

Certain configurations of stats/traits have made LW/FT/TV more competitive, but it's not universal.

Generally, GS is still stronger on average.

Re: Crit levels?

The only stat that affects BF proc generation is haste.
The reason you're seeing crit drop is because Frost generally wants a balance of all stats (except mastery). If you have too much crit over other stats, it's value will drop in relation to the other stats.

No, you always just spend them as they come. Also, you can only get 2 procs, not 3.

Re: Double Instant Pyro's no casts in between HOW??

Also note Icy veins claims scorch has no travel time. So that's where my confusion lies It's technically not a travel time, but server lag. What happens is that consuming hotstreak is a client event, that it, it happens on your local pc. However, registering a crit is server side, so it takes some ...

Re: Patch 8.1

Doesn't work with glacial spike though? So the guide needs updating?
It does work with Glacial Spike.
Is frost getting another 3% buff (so 6% in total for 8.1)?
Yes, but not quite 6%.

Re: Why nerf frost mages?

The 2% should put us up with fire if blastermaster gets nerfed which I expect it will at some point.
It wont, even if BM gets nerfed.

Re: BlasterMaster and Searing touch

Yeah. You only do the BM stacking in 2 places; Combustion and Execute since those are the only places where you can reliably crit.

Yes, Simc isn't optimizing BM yet, though they're working on it now. Should have one implemented in a couple of days, according to them
