Fingers of Frost or Permafrost for leveling?
So you thinking 2 pts into Early Frost and just 1 pt into Imp Blizz.??
Yep. This will give blizzard the ability to freeze people, which will make your blizzard crit, which will make it do a lot more damage.
Also...I wouldn't be using Blizzard in PvP a whole lot. The exception is probably in 40 man battlegrounds where the enemy team is pushing through a choke point. In that case, spam the hell out of it. If you're just in WSG/AB/EOTS it's meh. There's so much movement you'd really be doing inefficient damage. Along with breaking any CC that gets put out.
Permafrost is in the tier before FoF, and the choice is really between Permafrost and Piercing Chill, with either 2 or 3 points in Ice Floes. I went with 3/3 Ice Floes and 2/3 Perma at that tier. And after you finish the tier with FoF and ImpFreeze, you get Cold Snap, and Ice Floes lowering Cold Snap's cooldown = awesome.
Fingers of Frost and Improved Freeze are a mandatory 3/3 each, for sure. But Permafrost is just as necessary imho.
Frost has the unfortunate circumstance of being a very bottom heavy tree. You want most of the T1-T3 talents.
Also being frost you really shouldn't be focusing on single target leveling, pick up piercing chill and take out packs of mobs at the same time. It's not like AOE grinding, but the extra two chances to proc FoF and eventually BF every time you cast frostbolt (and with your pet helping too) will make short work of small packs of mobs.
I didn't even the lowered cooldown on Coldsnap. That's pretty huge.
I fat fingered that and fixed it. Ice Floes is in the same tier as Permafrost, and it lowers Cold Snap's CD. In that tier, for leveling, it just makes most sense for Permafrost and Ice Floes. You get the most tangible benefits for the points.
