Re: Why nerf frost mages?

At the start Frost was the strongest, Fire weakest and Arcane meh.

Now it's Fire strongest (even without BM stacking niche), Frost weakest, Arcane meh.

Fire sucks at the moment, but they're getting a 5% damage buff soon.

Re: Glacial Spike - Updated

Cancel and start using GS if you can do it within 300ms reaction time. That's just below half a second. If your reaction time isn't fast enough it works out to be a dps loss.

Re: [BFA] Frost Mage PvE Raiding Guide.

Hi Rexdan, It's most likely related to the fact that nobody is near the crit cap so definitely you'll have some GS that won't crit. On a more nefarious note, if you're playing with relatively high latency you'll find it'll prevent you from executing the combo smoothly. Also make sure you set your Sp...

Re: Fire situational rotation help

1. Meteor, when used, has a travel time... if you're entering combustion and Meteor is off CD, you use Meteor -> Combusion -> burn rotation 2. Due to the ramp up time for Fire, you're never going to ever catch up in dps on mobs packs that die too quickly. Your effectiveness will become more apparent...

Re: Glacial Spike - Updated

If you're at 5 icicles, EB is queued, but BF procced because of your last frostbolt, it is a dps increase if you can cancel the EB queue and go straight into the GS combo within 300ms reaction time. That translates to just under half a second (you have to be really quick). There was a thread about t...

Re: Glacial Spike - Updated

Depends on where you're at when the fight is about to start. In dungeons, more often than not I'll have 5 icicles ready to go to open with a boss fight. If i DON'T have frozen orb off CD, then I'd open with frostbolt, icyveins, Ebonbolt, GS combo It'd still go Frostbolt at the start first because th...

Re: [BFA] Frost Mage PvE Raiding Guide.

"Cast Flurry If you have 5 stacks of Mastery: Icicles after casting Glacial Spike, or if you have less than 3 stacks of Mastery: Icicles cast it after Frostbolt" This is true. Unless you're moving, which becomes use whatever procs available... but prioritise Ice lance procs over Flurry procs. If you...

You'd spam Arcane Explosion at 3+ targets due to Reverberation talent.

Re: How does everyone feel about 8.0 Arcane?

I was playing Arcane in BFA until I tried Frost (I was always Fire in Legion)... I think Frost blows Arcane out of the water in almost all situations in PVE right now in Mythic dungeons. There's a lot more disadvantages playing with Arcane over Frost: - If you're playing with Shimmer, your dps is sc...

Re: [BFA] Frost Mage PvE Raiding Guide.

If you're under 3 icicles, AND you have a Flurry proc then you do flurry -> Icelance combo in all circumstances. If you are under 3 icicles, and DON'T HAVE a flurry proc then: 1. Keep casting Frostbolt and dump fingers as long as Flurry doesn't proc and 2. If after casting frostbolt and flurry procs...

Re: [BFA] Frost Mage PvE Raiding Guide.

If you have 3 icicles + Fingers + Brain, you'd still build to 5 icicles for the GS -> Flurry -> Ice Lance because the GS spike damage does more damage than dumping Fingers. This is especially true when you have a 33% crit cap so your GS always crit. However, I'd dump Fingers if I need to move out of...

Re: [BFA] Frost Mage PvE Raiding Guide.

You cast Ice Lance everytime you cast a Brain Freeze Flurry. If you have existing Ice Lance procs (Fingers of Frost), and Brain Freeze pops up, you will dump Ice Lances if you're not casting Frostbolt. If you were in the middle of Frostbolt then you cast Flurry right after, which means you'll "munch...

Re: Fire love for Battle for Azeroth.

I hate Frost with a passion... Even more so now that their top spec requires the elemental pet. I've been dabbling with Arcane but it's a very unforgiving spec for raid boss fights especially if you don't know the boss mechanics inside-out (due to burn phases). Fire at Legion launch was the best... ...

i get where you're coming from. But I think after so many expansions probably 90% (me throwing a number here) of the population is already used to the Blizzard class design philosophy... It's basically spec vs fight and number tuning. If they change it back to freedom-based class design then their c...

Re: How does everyone feel about 8.0 Arcane?

Without the legendaries (because they're useless in BFA once replaced), Arcane's downtime is really really punishing. So much so that I'm thinking of switching back to Fire or Frost. You really really need to know the fight to somewhat optimise your burn phases, which is going to suck when entering ...
