Does anyone know which trinkets are the most wanted as Frost? Some of the choices I dont agree with with Icy-veins

Interesting variation there with Leyshock's Grand Compilation showing as 2nd best at Bloodmallet yet way down the list on Hero Damage. Tidestorm Codex is another one where it rates very highly on Hero but poorly on Bloodmallet.
With these things, you need to really look into the details.

On bloodmallet, all the trinkets cap at 415.
On HeroDamge, all trinkets cap at 425, except leyshock caps at 400. If you just check all the values at 400 ilvl, leyshock is pretty high.

Sorry for the late reply. Bloodmallet is showing it up to a 415 version where as Herodamage only goes up to 400. That is why it is so far up the list.

What counts as "high stacks" of Incanters to make ice lance worth to cast in the no lance build?

So I am starting to play with the No Ice Lance Build, and have a question regarding it.

When you get your proc to go = Glacial Spike into Instant Flurry. You get the WInter's Chill. Would you Ice Lance then with the 2 procs of FoF, or go straight back into Frostbolt?

Hi! I've got a question about the changes for frost mage, making mastery and no ice lance build very viable for me (and many others). The question is whether Subroutine: Optimization and a yellow punchcard with either mastery/haste or perhaps mastery/crit would be viable now? Has anyone simmed/messed around with it? Wouldn't it make the glacial spikes and icicles massive?
