Just give them a nice hard nerf down the ground floor, problem solved
Don't panic, its very likely to be a bug. This was induced during a very weird beta build, where a lot of things broke for the frost mage (like a legendary having double the duration intended, a soulbind giving +100% secondary stats with 100% uptime...). The bug has been fix between the ptr prepatch and the live version, they probably forgot to add the fix to the beta.
Don't worry this game is good to go at the end of the month!
it's annoying enough they made ice nova 1 charge and do almost no damage, comet storm is now meh and they removed deep freeze some time ago.. quit removing all our instant casts and making frost a proc only spec -.-
This is false on the Live game right now.Playing a Frost mage in Nyalotha on Sunday night, I was able to cast frostbolt right into a Flurry and followed by a double ice lance with both ice lances benefitting from the Winter's Chill debuff/bonus.Removed
This seems to sum up Blizzard's philosophy lately.. To do more DPS, stop DPS'ing....
THey need to rework how frost works. It was over the top before (due to bugs in fingers of frost), now this. Just balance the specs FFS.
Wow this was the worst explained thing I've ever read. For everyone else who speaks English not...whatever this is, the difference is that your Frostbolt will consume one of two stacks, so you need to use Flurry > Ice lance instead of Flurry > Frostbolt. That's literally all it is.
If you stand about 15 yrds away from the mob, frostbolt casted right before the flurry proc does not consume a charge. This is tested and confirmed on SL beta. Previous patches we needed to make sure we were farther away from the mob, now in SL we need to be close enough. Could be worse. :)
CANCEL the WHAT dear god. what a mess.
Sounds sucky sucky
Sounds so fun ....
This has been happening in beta for several weeks, it's more than likely a bug and it's a reflection of the @#$%-show that is going to be this rushed expansion.It's more likely to have a covid vaccine for 24th November than a Shadowlands expansion without bugs
It's pretty stupid that the optimal rotation means to cancel your casts. We had the double ice lance in the past that involved blinking and moving in and out of your target and that was cool (imho) and Blizzard removed it
