If you nuke the crystal with ice novas your chance to crit is based on your actual crit chance not on hitting a frozen target, so it rarely critted anyway.

Most mages just ice novad the petnovad target standing next to the crystal since it was overall more damage than ice novaing the crystal itself.

So its practically a good nerf for the game, an RNG nerf.

if you do 50k non crit, the crystal will send 55k away
if you do 50k non crit +  50k multistrikes the crystal will send 80k away
if you do 50k non crit + 50k (additional damage) (which would have been 110k damage before the nerf - the crit damage will be recognized as 35k so its 55k + 38,5k (because of the +10%) which results in 93,5k damage the crystal sends away

nerf is noticeable, but how often did it actually crit? so its just to shut down stupid random 1 shots (which can still happen ofc)

hope i described it well enough

Yes I understood that, but what I meant to ask was, what does it do with crits? As I read the change, it lowers the damage on crit (let's assume the ice nova crits for once).

To conclude,
I want mages to be about CC and Shattering, it was the thing that I fell in love with this class in TBC. Now nothing feels even remotely "mage'ish".

Exactly this. This is what made 99% of the mages play frost mage. That made the class insanely fun.

There is not so much they 'should' change for Frostmages. There's only 2 things that need a rework:

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.

2. Rework Ice Nova. Remove the mini stun (a root would be fun), remove the poly DR and remove the AOE dmg. Might rework the damage number on this as well.

A third wish, but not entirely needed if the above have been reworked is buffing the Commet storm damage. It doesn't do anything atm.

Your numbers are not really accurate, but ur not far off either. Frostbolt doesn't do anything. I think max (included the multistrike dmg u do) you can get a 18k dmg output (crit) from a frostbolt. So yeah, it's shit.

The thing I don't understand is that they always talked about 'rewarding casts again' for frostmages in WoD. Where is that?
