Someone hasn't had their mana biscuits this morning. I'm not sure on PvE, I'd refer to Ruther's website. For PvP, frostbomb guarantees you a frostfire bomb on detonation or when the target dies. With living bomb, it's all random... you may get 1, or you may get none. You may also get upwards of 4; depends on how gracious the RNG Gods are feeling.

Do you hate people who ask questions?

Depends whether you prefer control or luck.

I prefer Frost Bomb since it's sure to proc, thus I can plan accordingly (I also hate the whole "lolwannabewarlock" feel of the other bombs but that is for another time). I'm no expert though, but like I said : if you want to be able to control your burst, take FB. If you rather try your luck at a bigger, but unreliable (and a perhaps pain) to manage burst, LB is your choice.

This is why Fire Mages such as myself get very happy when Frost Mages use Frost Bomb. I know exactly when to spellsteal Brain Freeze to use for a Pyro proc.

The BF PPM is pretty even for all three bombs.

But, as you pile on more Haste, Frost Bomb begins to slightly pull ahead, because it doesn't allow proc munching. LB ticks slow so it rarely runs into this problem as well.

Neither nether tempest since it scales so well with haste you will get the most procs out of that

NT - 9% chance per tick
LB - 25% chance per tick
FB - 100% chance on explosion

It scales identically to Frost Bomb, but has more proc munching than the other two bombs

for PVP right now living bomb is the way, that's it. frost bomb sucks and nether tempest breaks polly making certain setups more difficult and causing problems in arenas.

Pve wise the profs per minute of each bomb is the same, use each bomb depending on the amount of aoe during the fight (lb single target - 3 mobs, frost bomb 4+)

Pvp wise use living bomb, easier to get off, if it's dispelled it's not as catastrophic as frost bomb being dispelled, and it ends up being more damage overall.
