With the PoM RoF nerf in place, anyone seriously considering Ice Ward?  20 second cooldown, 5 second duration, AoE root.  Different DR than Frost Nova/Freeze.  We may need more shatter opportunities now that Freeze doesn't give procs when target is immune.  This is a problem a surprisingly high amount of time on the PTR, albeit mostly in 1v1, but I frequently find myself freezing immune targets in arena too (Ferals, Warriors).

It's arguably better for peeing zoo than PoM RoF, and you save PoM for poly/ffb.  Thoughts?

Three econometricians went out hunting, and came across a large deer. The first econometrician fired, but missed, by a meter to the left. The second econometrician fired, but also missed, by a meter to the right. The third econometrician didn't fire, but shouted in triumph, "We got it! We got it!"

i'm thinking most people will swap to blazing speed and say "HOLY SHIT THIS IS AWESOME" and use it for a while, then realize instant sheeps are so important that they'll go back to PoM shortly after.  although it's really nice vs. rogues and monks.

Its a nice way to get a root on targets for deep or a cheap peel, but I feel like almost no melee sit in novas anymore. The healer has to be cc'd and monks,warriors, ferals and rets all can just break the root. Does the root dr with itself? If not, I could see being better than ring of frost.

That would be nice. Make it so you get FoF procs from melee attacking you with frost armor up, maybe then it will at least be a little bit attractive.
