I just faced some ridiculous frost mage who went red so he popped a trinket since that's all they have. Even though I trinketed deep, I still would have died in seconds if it weren't for loh. I managed to get a couple more heals after that, but I still died because the damage was insane.
Not a single frostbolt. I literally do not think the mage casted anything at all. Just ice lance! And yet this mage was at least twice my damage output on this ret.
I faced one other mage recently that did this too. That time he didn't even deep freeze. Just a frost orb, pet attacks and again ice lance spam. Yet sadly it's a tough fight due to ice barrier, blink and even a frost nova because that means we still have to spend a gcd to remove it.
Why in the world is such a cheap, spammable spell do this must damage? It should have a small cd. If that were the case arcane barrage and earth shock should be spammable.
