  1. It is a bit too obvious that most mages are Arcane now which is a bit weird compared to retail. It should be the weakest spec out there among the 3 unless we're talking about Burst AOE. now Fire has been fixed and improved but frost mage presents very low numbers whereas it should be the best ST spec for Mages. Something is wrong you should take a look at this spec I am not sure if there is even a Class Master for Mages compared to Warlocks who had one and have been quite active and relied on feedback to try and fix warlock problems. If Anyone else concurs that frost mages need fixes or buff or have any Idea of where these low numbers come from add to this post or to the Bugtracker.
  2. After waiting something like 2 months, The Soultakers are finally up. Killed them 4 times already and still got no hidden appearance for my frost dk. Is it working or the only way to get it is from the shop??? I always hit the 3 of them, so that's not the problem. When they die only one of their corpses stay visible and lootable. All I got was gold tho
  3. ice lance

    1) Overestimate damage of magicians. Namely: A) the wrong formula for Ice Lance (Ice Spear) Icy Spear Should deal 306-392 damage + 33.5% of Spell Power B) incorrect work of skill - too much increases DPS from the magician as you remember top 40 from player 13 mage like top 14 player 30 % mage please fix Check out the video 1) 2) 3)
  4. I have this problem with my class hall hidden artefact as mage I saw some mages playing with hidden artefact FROSTFIRE REMEMBRANCE so i wanted it too. I looked at some guides how to get and it requires class hall upgrade called Teleportation Nexus After waiting for it to upgrade i walked to see those portals and there weren´t any. If someone know how to get it please message me.
  5. How to do 400k on single target dummy with 857 ilvl and no legendary? Why frost? 1. Do not depend on legendaries 2. For single target frost > arcane > fire, multi-target frost is not so bad with talent `Splitting Ice` 3. Due to some firestorm bug, `glacial spike` damage is almost doubled compare to retail server, you can easily do 2M+ damage with single hit. (as of Oct 2017) Talent http://www.wowhead.com/talent-calc/mage/frost/c27M 2133232 At level 45, `Rune of Power` can potentially do more damage but I never able to do the perfect rotation, probably because of the firestorm lag (200ms for me). At level 60, since I only do mythic+ I use `Splitting Ice`, `Frozen Touch` can potentially do more damage on single target, however I can never notice the difference on the number of proc with dummy. At level 90, free to choose, `Unstable Magic` do more on single target. At level 100, `Thermal Void` is the best on retail, however on firestorm `Glacial Spike` is bugged due to some unknown bug (probably double dipping) and the crit damage is insane(2M+ at 850 ilvl). The non crit damage is about 1/4 of the crit damage which clearly indicates there is a bug here. And with the help of another bug(Flurry, introduce later), you can make `Glacial Spike` crit 100% of the time. Bugs List the known bugs I found: 1. Brain Freeze `Flurry` increases crit chance at cast instead of hit This bug increases the crit chance of the first hit of `Flurry`, on retail it only effects the last 2 hits. 2. `Glacial Spike` can be effected by `Flurry` with Brain Freeze. On retail you cannot make `Glacial Spike` 100%, but on firestorm you can, this is huge, this means your mastery(icicle) not only can crit, but actually 100% crit. 3. `Thermal Void` do not extends the time of the 20% ice damage buff. `Thermal Void` is useless compare to `Glacial Spike` Rotation One of the basic of frost mage DPS is 1+1+1, which is: When you have `Brain Freeze`, cast `Frost Bolt`(or ebonbolt), followed by `Flurry`(with Brain Freeze), then `Ice Lance`. 1+1+1 gives you `Brain Freeze` buff to all 3 spells which is the foundation of frost mage. This is how the rotation looks like: 1. pre-cast Ebon bolt or Frost Bolt 2. use frozen orb 3. use `icy veins` and `Time Warp` 4. cast frost bolt 1+1+1 5. Cast `Ice Lance` if `Chain Reaction` is bigger than 2 (I do not have exact data here, according to my calculation `Ice Lance` with 0 `Chain Reaction` is not worthy to cast) 6. Cast Ebon bolt if `Glacial Spike` is ready but no `Brain Freeze` (very important, don't cast it on CD) 7. cast frost bolt until `Glacial Spike` and `Brain Freeze` is available 8. If `Glacial Spike` is available but no `Brain Freeze`, cast `Ice Lance` with `Frost Finger` 9. Cast `Glacial Spike` 1 + 1 + 1 NOTE: if your target is not a boss, it will get freeze by `Glacial Spike` for 3 seconds, then you should not use 1+1+1 because you can add a `Frost Bolt` after `Flurry` followed by `Ice Lance`. Casting this way will give a free 100% `Frost Bolt`. And with maximum haste (`Icy Veins` + `Time Warp`) you can actually cast 2 `Frost Bolt` with in this 3 seconds and then followed by `Ice Lance`, makes the rotation 1(Glacial Spike) + 1(Flurry) + 1 or 2(Frost Bolt) + 1(Icy Lance) MOST IMPORTANT: NEVER CAST `Glacial Spike` WITHOUT `Brain Freeze` Stat Stats is really really hard to measure. Since firestorm have its own rules I cannot run it through SIMC. One major difference is that crit do not max at 33.3%(retail) but something between 25% and 26%. I tested with 16% crit on a raid boss dummy, got 81.7% actual crit with `Brain Freeze` and `Frost Finger`, Then I add my crit to 20%, and got 90%, then24% => 98% actual crit. And I can never get a non-crit with 26%. It looks like in firestorm the formula is not x*1.5 +50% but x*2 + 50%. So don't have crit over 25%! The stats after 25% crit is very hard to value without the exact math model, and I cannot calculate if `Glacial Spike` is really double dipping versatility here due to the randomness of `Black Ice`. A perfect test would be from a mage without `Black Ice`, I only have this one mage and do not want to re level or forget my traits. Haste VS Mastery VS Versatility is a myth that I cannot solve, so I always go with the item highest ilvl after 25% crit. So: 25% Crit >> Haste ~= Mastery ~= Versatility Relic From retails experience `Icy Caress`(+3% frost bolt damage) is the best, followed by `Clarity of Thought`(+2% Brain Freeze). Gems and enchants Haste and Versatility gem is the cheapest, I prefer Versatility since it can also reduce your damage taken. Enchants use `Hidden Satyr` for neck, rest use to adjust your 25% crit. Summary Frost Mage is so OP that don't feel bad if you got owned by one (same for Fury Warrior).

  6. Hi, my name is Gelanana, and i'm a Frost Mage. I've a big problem with my frost pet, it doesen't work. It say to be silenced/pacified with all but on the other players it work. I've tryed to change race ( buying it ) but it didn't resolved nothing. I've tryed to put some glyph with the hope of a new pet, but nothing happened. Can u help me pls?
  7. Fixed Ebonbolt, procs gained while you already have a Brain Freeze active and unused will now be delayed slightly. Got this from the changelog .. ok wtf ... mage dev is actualy retarded ? if we cant use brain freeze proc to shatter ebonbolt that makes ebonbolt basicly useless, spending 3sec to cast an ability that may not crit ? ... thats the main reason blizzard made so ebonbolt gives flurry proc instead of fingers of frost so we can shatter it ... ok fck it in pvp we can shatter ebonbolt with ice nova ... but what in pve ? we have to stack 70%+ crit so we have guarantee ebonbolt crit ? .....when they apply the fixes i was so happy to see that hostile npcs and players get the winter's chill debuff instead of me and i though .. wow they maybe fixed frost mage finaly ... but i was wrong tried to cast ebonbolt and after i cast it i got like 1-1.5 sec delay on the proc that mean the bolt is about to hit the target and there is no way to shatter it with flurry .... This makes no sense .. please fix it .. or dont , i actualy dont expect you to take note from this and we will see the same bullshit for like 2yrs till the new expac comes out and it will start all over again -Firestom We dont care about you or the game , we only care about the money .! P.S In before some kids come here and start complaining about frost mage being op and broken , Please learn how to play your class and how to counter other classes . if you cant do that then you are not viable for pvp .. so go slay some dragons and be a good boy
  8. Why do not you always just dk bring it to the other characters and why always just dk why nerf why dk should say it should be cut down but this is why people like it would be good if you did something to do so Dk frost is totally weak pvp and you do not do anything else
