Coming back to wow, apparently frost mages are op?
Return to board index
Planning to role a mage for
so I'm installing the game right now and so I'm still in
mode. Last I played was WotLK where arcane (arcane barrage spam) spec was most valid for pvp.
I'm not seeing where frost is op?
Alot of the survivability tools (ice barrier, cold snap, frost bomb) are in the talents which does not require one to spec frost. Other specs also seem to have decent utility and survivability (dragns breath, combustion, slow). fire seems to have alot of potential of doing tons of damage with those instant pyros and DoTs, critical mass passive, etc)
So what am I missing here? Just dont wanna level up training my pvp skills in one spec and then reaching 90 and finding out frost is the way to go!
I know I should probably play the game first but its downloading and thought I might ask fellow mages what they think before I start :D
Frost Mages have huge burst dmg "Frost bomb 60k-180k", "Ice lance 60K-120k", "Frostfire Bolt 90k=150k", "Fire Blast 50k" With the exception of Frost Bomb all other spells above are instant cast so all this can be done in about 5 seconds, and with presence of mind even Frost Bomb Can be instant cast. I haven't mentioned the constant dmg coming from the elemental, the 2 Freeze Spells, The Stun Spell, Blink, Ice Block, Ice Barrier.
Currently all mages are viable in PvP Frost, Fire or Arcane. Frost bomb can be used for any spec and does huge burst damage. Imo one isnt better than the other.
Not sure about OP or whatever, but Frost has ALWAYS been viable for PVP, and is a favourite for high rated PVP.
You know i actually just started doing pvp with my mage after reading all this (well that and i got bored with pve constantly just increasing itl when i've already done the raids in lfr.) Anyways My pvp gear is specced for frost. The only way i can see frost being op so far is from all the stuns we have. Right now i'm still doing randoms for honor to get the higher gear to do arenas. But i never see them do that well in the battlegrounds. Granted I can kick but in a one on one duel in goldshire but still...
