There is more to WoW than balancing for the Arena. Maybe raid performance should be gauged first before asking for the nerf bat to be swung at frost mages. PVP balance has held that spec back for way too long in PVE.

pvp is given the least attention out of anything in this game.

hell this was supposed to be the "PVP" expansion and during beta almost nothing was posted in the beta PVP section, more attention was given to the new pokemon feature.

There are better ways to adresss PVE damage than to shove it all in frostbomb and gigantic burst nukes. In fact, that's probably bad for PVE as it will result in burst threat. Spread it out a bit more over a dot here, pet damage buff, buffs to damage vs targets who are permanently immune to roots (similar to how stormbolt does 100% weapon damage and 300% weapon damage against targets permanently immune to stuns), ect.

yes mage damage is stupid but just like to point out i got crit for 200k devouring plague about 30min ago.

I also died to a warrior in about 4 seconds (400k hp) not sure what he hit me with my combat log was broken at the time.

Can we just agree a lot of people have stupid damage and hand out the whiffle and nerf bats to tickle each other to death?

Maybe give frozen targets the C Smash treatment in pvp?

Btw welcome back Grux, did you take a leave of absence?

I hope you're trolling. Frost Mage should -never- be a PvE balanced spec because it revolves around -dealing damage to frozen targets- and guess what? Bosses can't be frozen. If it's DPS is balanced around raids that means it will be grossly GROSSLY overpowered in PvP


It is a PvE balanced spec right now. At least at 90.

Targets don't have to be frozen as long as Fingers of Frost exists.

I am more annoyed that healing got nerfed in PvP, but shadow priests and mages who have absorb effects got to keep their tool kit untouched.

Absorbs are more potent than self healing.

I think we need to get rid of inferno blast/fireblast glyph.
