Frost Bomb nerfed by 50%

Arenas
When Fire Blast modified by Glyph of Fire Blast is used to detonate a Frost Bomb, it now deals 50% less damage.

okay so when does that stop a mage from still gibbing you when your healer is in a CC chain of death that we all know is NOT hard to pull off

oh you still get gibbed

doesn't fix the problemmm
I never saw fire blast as the issue. The only time it was, was when you had a healer that wasn't paying attention and let you eat a whole deep. It'll make openers a bit easier to survive I suppose but I'll always say frost just needs a new mastery.
dont worry they nerfed healing by another 15% so mages can still faceroll us
hmmmmm just tested.. hit for 93k with no fire blast, then a 93k with fire blast. Did blizzard dun goof again?
Woot!

*hovers mouse over glyph of Polymorph*

Soon....... Soon.

P.S. Source?
not enough, they need to nerf frost bomb itself.

The damage is high but the bigger problem is that it's so impossible to avoid with fireblast glyph. Things with high power should have to be used intelligently. If people are CCing healers they should be able to land kills. It seems perfectly fair that by making the ability easier to land they make it weaker. 50% may be a bit much though.
mages have been nerfed so hard, and people are still gonna qq when they die to them..People are always gonna cry about mages, FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!
Hasn't been implemented yet, playing with a warrior right now, and he is still getting 3 stack tfb.
They nerfed FIRE BLAST damage. NOT frost bomb damage.

Blizzard worded it poorly.

Guys, it's basically from
180k Frostbomb, 50k Fireblast
to 180k Frostbomb, 25k Fireblast
We never used fireblast for the damage anyway....good call, blizzard.
huehuehue blizz trollin' so hard
If frost bomb was doing 180k then fire blast was doing 80-100k.

Are you joking mages have hardly had a nerf in frost it still allows good mages to do everything they did before it will sort out the scrubs that's it.
If frost bomb didn't benefit from mastery it would have solved the problems of mages who don't even need to stack CDs to do ridiculous burst.
Blizz just updated us. It IS a 50% nerf to frost bomb when detonated by fire blast but change is not live yet.

MOM GET THE CAMERA, THERE IS AN ACTUAL ROGUE HERE!

This whole season only played against one rogue, no kidding, and he was combat... it was in 2s... we got facerolled (he was with a frost mage pre nerf).
