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.

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.

They nerfed FIRE BLAST damage. NOT frost bomb damage.

Blizzard worded it poorly.

When fire blast is used to detonate frost bomb, FIRE BLAST does 50% less damage.

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.

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.
