An interesting idea I've found is casting blizzard instead of frostbolt in between orb CDs. I use ice floes so it can be cast while running. This is extra useful when any sort of pets are summoned (what's up army of the dead) to return your orb CD. I haven't tested it in arenas yet, I will play some later today. But with frostbolt damage at the terrible place it is it seems to me like blizzard gives more FoF procs and helps reset orb for us to start doing damage again.

Oh, and flameglow is the shit. So is prismatic crystal.

I haven't gotten to try it vs super dot heavy teams/teams which have a lot of pets/heavy purging etc, it might be worth it in specific scenarios!

after temporal shield healing got nerfed then flameglow was actually equal/better vs at least half the teams you fought, just almost no1 took it since everyone overestimated how strong temporal shield actually was

No because the difference is when I play a comp i play it close to skill cap

if anyone needs to be banned, it's you. You do nothing but sit on AJ being a passive aggressive idiot that nobody likes, sorry you stink of washing up liquid.

Feel free to call me an idiot because I'm a hunter or some stupid ass remark but I've actually written all this down on paper

I actually made an appearance at DH2014 and I met up with people from twitch who were involved with the dota 2 / cs tournies that where there, I talked about the game from my perspective as a professional player and we actually shared a lot of opinions. All I'm saying is a lot of people will be VERY surprised about the future of this game in the esport world :)

Thanks for the kind words guys, I'll get to updating the guide a bit more soonish - especially the gearing / talent / comp section!

As for the Crystal vs. Comet part I was probably dueling! However in some comps I do feel like crystal will get zero use vs certain matchups, and Comet Storm is still SOMETHING (if you don't manage your procs well, have shitty RNG, etc)... So much to learn, eh? =D

Great guide, much appreciated!
Two opinions:
- I found Crystal actually weaker than it sounds on paper, mostly because of its cluncky mechanics. The success and actual burst damage depends much more on your partners (stuns / roots) / opponents (moving out of the radius) than on you. The other two options are still weak but I found myself using Comet Storm in duels, RBGs and world pvp. Thermal void might be a fun pick vs non-dispellers in duels.
- Frostjaw is actually AMAZING, such underrated talent. It DRs only with silences (wich are pretty few in the game atm and RoF DRs with poly), has a good duration, separate school than poly and allows you to setup Deep Freeze and all of it on 20 sec CD. You can setup some (cross) cc very decently on your own, pretty much the only useful thing we can do between our bursts.
