what armor for frost mage pve?

Mage
I've been using frost but by looks of it it seems that mage armor could be better?
Frost Armor is best by a good margin, at least through T14H. There may be a point after that where one of the others takes over.

if our mage armor was instant, it would be viable to switch to mage armor for increased mastery right before using your pet nova + frozen orb. The mastery would benefit every single icelance FoF you get. Not worth a 3 second-cast. However, if you're well over the haste cap with icy veins and other raid buffs, then you might be better served switching to mage armor.
The IV glyph makes the haste cap a non-issue. Haste is such a strong stat for Frost that you absolutely want to use the glyph once you pass some 19-20% buffed haste, and then keep on stacking haste.

Glyph of Icy Veins:

ohhh icey vains lol. I was reading it "four glyph" i'm such a noob -.-
Actually, after recent tweaks to the sim, it looks like there may be a very small advantage to Molten Armor in T14N gear. Like a couple hundred DPS, out of a hundred thousand.

Player error and situations would close that gap.
Yeah, a difference that small is really just noise.
