build focuses on frost nova procing the dmg buff and wen it doesnt, ice armor procing frost nova, then shooting ray of frost and meteor/comet
critique
I'd worry about resistances. Other than that, swap out Evocation, you only have one CD. Also, not particularly related to your build, but I really like the Golden Ice Armor. It sounds almost too good to be true, 50% regular bonus that gains another 55% every time you get hit up to 3 times. Am I wrong in thinking the math is that easy? An additional 215% armor?
I'll be too busy not getting hit to care about such bonuses.

Maybe its just me, but I read the tool tip as a 55% increase to the 50% armor buff, stacking 3 times. At 3 stacks, 50% * 2.65 = 132.5% total increase to armor. Basically, every stack would add an additional 27.5% of your base armor.

Either way, that is a significant bonus to armor
I wasn't sure if it was 55% of the 50%, or your armor in general. Sorry to hijack your thread man. I'll release the hostages, just gimme a helicopter and a bag of beef jerky.
Additional armor is from melee attacks only. Ice wizards biggest threat is Actually ranged attackers, mainly archers.
this is probably the best build i've seen: http://i.imgur.com/7nMC7kJ.jpg
