Diablo® III

Frostburn Gauntlets...

I trash these things all the time. Up until now I've never looked twice but had some drop with 6% cold and 30% more damage for cold. Still trash I guess but thought I'd see if there is anyone out there that uses them.

From what I understand, the cost/benefit ratio is so out of whack that they're simply not a viable choice for gearing.

Wonder if the mystic could help these gauntlets out and add attack speed or cc?

Its good for rof build, black ice or sleet storm.

I found a 6 / 30 pair and held onto em just for shiggles.

They'd be totally fine for a low - mid mp blizzard / rof build I think, it depends what other gloves are available to you. Regular gloves are pretty hard to beat, but if you take yours off and they only give you about 20% of your sheet dps and little or no eHP frostburns should work fine. Low main stat trifectas are so cheap now though, and crafted gloves with 200 int and one damage mod will likely out damage frostburns, so probably not worth it anywhere but the most ghetto of budget builds.

The most epic oven mitts.

They work fine in an appropriate build, not only that, but a Fragment of Destiny too.

If you are using blizzard as your only damage dealer frosties are okay on low MP. I wouldn't use them for any RoF rune because wizards need CC, period. Fragment is just too much of a DPS gimp to be of any use at all. Plus it has no sustain. Show me someone worth his weight in dirt that uses fragment.

I had one complete ice skill build that I used them in, but I still missed the cc and APOC. So no, I never found a use for them.
