Anyone else cold snap before their first block to avoid getting global'd from time to time? It's actually saved me from a couple of gibs when im on global and in the best case scenario I don't have to use my second and now only block. I try to not make this a bad habit due to the obvious consequences but it's a shame to get the nickname neverblockx.

I've done it  more than once but usually leaves your healer in a bad place with them thinking you've got another block so they misjudge eating a CC/holding back heals for a second thinking you're gonna block!

Had to do it multiple times, sucks ass but what can you do. Atleast it gave you couple more seconds to survive.

Done it more often after i've been kicked by a warrior and in the same second hes popped every single cd under the sun. As long as you let your healer know you've fucked up, it is better then just dieing at least.

i think if there havent been the cold snap change with mop, many mages would die without iceblock actually quite often.
and yes, rather snap then die..

tbh I'll only do it if i get locked on frost since you can snap then block while locked which is rly good when teams know they locked u and pop all their cds

cause it sometimes happens, that you stuck in a global and just get a 100k+ hit which was not predictable (jk of course it was) and you have to reset the global and the heal of cold snap is pretty good as well.

for example:
you're on 60% health, melee shaman pops form, stormstrike hits you for 55% of your hp and you just used a global.
what would you do, snap or die?

Apparently some mages would rather just be dead than pop cold snap to stay alive

Can't win when your dead
