So I casted into a DK today on ptr...

Things are looking up, I'd say.

In Topic: Deep Freeze breaking only from Ice Lance damage 6.1

@Whompin I feel that, I mean on one hand, I really enjoy being able to post without titles (foreverduelist.jpg), but on the other, the influx of trolling and general ass-hattery is pretty infuriating at times.

Also, that suggestion on Unstable Magic is actually really solid man. Obviously the exact numbers would have to tuned as to not break us in PVE, but a turret style would be quite refreshing given the current state of "Run for your life until you have double nova + comet + orb and deep..." Because, like you said, it's really quite a drag to play, and the reason a gigantic population of mage mains rerolled to DK's and other mongo shit. It's just not fun to be in a high risk, low reward situation EVERY game should you try to hardcast damage.

still hoping they randomly switch the 2set and 4set bonuses around, so we can use the frostbolt set bonus + 0 mastery gear :(


regardless of what they do to cooldowns etc, deepfreeze not breaking on damage while ice nova exists in its current state is a stupid change

I kinda wish they'd bring back the 1sec root on CoC from back in the day as the 2set. Ya know, reward us for actually hitting the targets and give us the breathing room the bonus is intended for? Blizzpls :/

Ice Nova currently has a 250% ratio, so that's a tooltip update. The 3 sec CD sucks, but you can still fire both off into a Deep on PTR which kinda makes adding a CD pointless imho.

The 50% damage on FB is huge though. I've updated my spreadsheet for those interested in the numbers:

Edit: Thinking about it, If we play a more sustained damage style, we can get some pretty fierce damage by using Ice Nova as a  sort of new-aged shatter combo. Something like FB->Freeze->Nova for just basic damage. A full on rotation seems impractical but I'd imagine goes something along the lines of:

Trinkets+Frostbolt->Freeze->Nova->Orb->Comet->Deep(Glyphed)->Bolt/FFB/rePoly->Nova->Lance out.

Comet has a short GCD, so the Bolt/FFB->Nova that follows will always land into Deep regardless of haste, not to mention every single spell in the rotation benefits from shatter. Pretty crazy to think about.

Does the Proc work in arenas? If so, worth it. If not, well... I suppose it'd be good if you were arcane :P

Maybe PoM Poly in 6.1 makes it playable? Doubtful, but we'll see.
