I play a frost mage. Have since Vanilla. Made him my main when i came back to wow after a 3 year hiatus from 2008-2012. Almost 4 year break. Missed all of Lich King and most of Cataclysm.
Here’s my Mists of Pandaria tribute video to the Frost Mage Burst. I wish I had video of 5.0 when you could detonate Frost Bomb instantly with a Glyph. It was so overpowered they had to nerf it. Then they have to nerf it again. Then they had to do something about Ring of Frost. Then they had to do something about Instant Ring of Frost via Presence of Mind.
Now, as of 5.2, they have frost mages right where they need to be and I have yet to read about major changes to frost mages in 5.3. I did notice the main Fire Mage DoT is being increased in damage by 121%. Like that’s gonna matter. When you’re a Fire Mage, you cannot use Frozen Orb, or as I like to call it, The Spinning Orb of Bitch Slap.
