For 2s, hands down frost bomb, NT isn't going to give you enough burst to kill someone.
yes, but unless you are playing double dps why would you not be fire in 2s? 10000x more pressure and burst

Related; i've heard rumors of living bomb procing ffb at a 25% rate, can anyone confirm this? Might be worth using LB for 3s if this is accurate.

Any thoughts on this?
Correct, but you misunderstand how the bombs are designed to interact with brain freeze

With 0 haste:
Frost bomb, 10 secs cool down, hits once, 100% proc chance
Living bomb, ticks 4 times over 10 seconds (or close to), 25% proc chance per tick
Nether tempest, ticks 10/11 (can't remember) times over 10 seconds, 10% proc chance (ish) per tick

Each bomb is balanced to give a mathematically equal number of procs over a long (boss) fight, but nether tempest shines for frost because it scales so well with haste :)
