I think the quickest way to change some things right away are with our setbonusses. BOTH are so bad, I have exactly 1 setpiece equipped, that's just sad :/

My suggestion for set bonus changes would be something like this:

2 Piece: When you frostbolt into a frozen target, you get a 100% frostfire bolt proc.

4 Piece: Icy veins now becomes undispellable.

FFB damage honestly doesn't feel that bad, and my frostfire bolts do almost 25k+. Being able to store 2 ffb procs is a lot of dmg without Ice Nova already that is on demand, instant damage.

Second bonus speaks for itself, I like to keep my icy veins for more than a few seconds, it is a long cd after all :mad:
What's the point of a pvp set bonus making a buff undispellable? Is it getting dispelled in pve?

does anyone know if the hotfixes are already live? I still have my molten armor giving 5% crit and frostbolt damage is pretty the same as before. But i saw people saying they are already live.
Tooltips require a patch.
Look at your character sheet and see how much more crit you have as fire

1. Frostbolt damage - Buff it at least with 100% the amount of damage it does now. Which make a frostbolt crit (included multistrike) a 30k number instead of a 15k number. Combine that with the current Ice lance and we got a rewarded 'Shattter' again. 50k shatters on 300k hp pools are a good start.
You've forgotten about icicles.

Change 4set bonus in PvP gear to:
After successfully casting a Frostbolt, following Frostbolt damage is increased by 100%. Stacks up to 5 times, undispellable and 30sec duration.
You've definitely forgotten about icicles

Deep Freeze needs to go back to where it was before, it was our version of Kidney Shot and actually let us do damage into a target (while getting a breather from damage), and now it's just our version of Scatter Shot.
Scatter shot is definitely the best comparison I've seen

Funny thing about that is that I don't know any PvE Mages who seem to prefer playing Frost over the two other specializations, so I'm somewhat perplexed what target audience it is which benefited from these changes throughout the years.

The only people I know who don't like frost in PvE think it's too hard. Says more about them than the spec.

more interesting casting mechanics? people would just spam icelance on deep, because it wouldn't break, don't be silly
Most people are suggesting deep freeze be made into a normal stun, not counting as frozen.

Either way, you don't seem to realize that ice lance only does damage with fingers of frost(due to the 100% increased damage on fof).

Even old deep freeze would fit in atm. Would work well with comet storm/crystal
