Nether Tempest vs. Frost Bomb on Tortos
I just did tortos on my mage for the first time and havent been on him much ........... seems like frost bomb would out perform NT on that fight due to the abundance of adds any comments on that............. was also thinking i might just switch fire lol....... any comments anecdotal or data would be great i'm not pulling bad damage on it just feels like i could do better
My guild has me on bats, then switch to Turtles. Mainly because of our 10 man raid comp. Frost bomb would @!!#*@%% if you were on bat duty. If you're not supposed to be on bats Nether Tempest would work out better.
Or, do what I do, and chuck frost bomb up on the bats when they've landed and go back to pew-pewing turtles.
There are numerous things people suggest for this fight, but I say go with whatever you're comfortable doing. Fire is supposedly better for that fight, but it's very gear reliant, and personally I don't find the need to do THAT much moving...
Turtles normally are not stacked up tightly as needed for good DPS with frostbomb.
NT spamming on all of them helps out a lot more and helps lower all of them all instead of just dps on one.
If you're on bats for w/e reason i guess bomb is better, but you should be on turtles.

The problem with this is that Frost Bomb's slow is stronger than most other slows, but only lasts a few seconds. Frost Bomb will overwrite weaker slows when it applies, and then when it wears off 3 seconds later the turtles will be spinning across the room at full speed, and harder to app slows to with them being so spread out. For this reason I find it to be detrimental.
This. We have a job to do and it sucks, but we do it. Kill turtles with NT.
Best transmog ever!
I use FB on the trash and NT on the turtles, unless I am put on the bats (we have a ton of ranged), then I stick with FB.
FB is better than you think on that fight because it will hit other turtles, the bats, Tortos, etc.
