Stay Frosty!

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , on February 23, 2010 by theerivs

Well I’m back to Frost Spec for my Non-Raiding Spec. Though I enjoyed the Arcane-Shatter Spec that Euripedes showed me. I felt like I missed my elemental friend. Arcane Shatter is awesome for mobility, and is a cool spec. But my mages name is Frostscourge for crying out loud, he should be frost.

I still love it, I love just Blizzarding the crap out of things in heroic. The frostbolts, my perma-elemental, and the Ice Barrier Shield goodness. It feels….right. 

Just in time some good news for us frosties coming in patch 3.3.3

“Brain Freeze: This talent now allows your next Fireball or Frostfire Bolt to be instant and cost no mana. There is a small internal cooldown to keep the Frostfire Bolt from immediately triggering Brain Freeze again.”

Though I don’t use the talent, I just might pick it up now.

Also this….

“Frostbolt: Spell power scaling on this spell has been increased by approximately 5%.”

How Scrumptious!!!

So it’s good to be Frost again, and until next time Stay Frosty!

There are some things that just don’t click.

Something about being a Warlock just doesn’t click for me. I don’t know what it is. It’s not the difficulty, it just doesn’t feel right to me. I don’t know if it’s the fact I played a mage for so long, that I have a mage type attitude, or if I just get bored with it, and don’t want to learn the nuances of the class.

I have tried making Warlocks, but my interest fades by level 15 or 20.

Now with my Pally, I love Ret, and I dig being Holy. I tried a Prot spec, and it just didn’t feel right.  I don’t know what it is maybe my rotation is all wrong, or I am so used to being a Prot Warrior from back in the day, my mentality has to change. Though I’m sure nowadays Warrior Tanks don’t have to wait the 3 sunders.

When I hit level 70, and Northrend. I’m going to give Paly Tanking another shot. I hope this time it sticks.

Arcane in the Membrane

Ok I do love frost, I love it alot. I leveled with it. I was Frost spec when it wasn’t cool to be Frost spec. Though  die hard Frosties out there will start to loathe me. I have a confession to make…I’m addicted to Arcane.

When I’m raiding,  like seeing the numbers Arcane tosses out there. They’re big, and being the size queen I am…size matters. 

I also like how you have more situational control over fights. Frost is like a dependable car, a Volkswagon perhaps. It’s consistent, and easy, not hard on mana.  Arcane is like a Corvette. You slam it into gear, and you rock out with your c*ck out. Blasting fools like Tony Montanya in Scareface, or you can ease back a bit.  I am also use to Arcane now, the mana control, the nuances of it, the feel of it, the new car smell of it.

So yea after much playing around, I’m sticking to Arcane for the Raiding, and I’m going to go back to the Arcane Shatter PvP spec.

Help me Krizzlybear, I need a Frost intervention.

Arcane Shatter Build for PvP.

As a mage, I am always looking for new things to try, and new things to experiment with. This post had me highly curious.  I have foregone my usual Frost PvP Spec to give this a shot. I tried to test it out on a Warrior, but Whirlwind got the best of me. I will be testing it out in the BG’s more throughly tonight.  Though I don’t PvP alot, and I don’t have any PvP gear, which I hope to remedy soon.

The post reminded me of when I did PvP, in my 3 minute mage days of  (Trinket+AP+POM+Pyro) Days. Ever one shot a priest or Warlock? It was pure joy.  And when a Shammie grounded totem me it sucked huge…well you know what.

What I did.

I went 51/0/20

Got Icy Veins, and all the Arcane Goodies. Arcane Barrage being the biggie, and Slow.

I made a macro (POM+Frostfire Bolt)

Glyphs I am using, Glyph of Evocation, Glyph of Polymorph, Glyph of Icy Veins.

So hopefully tonight I’ll run it through its paces, and if it sucks I’ll go back to good ole Frost, if it’s pure awesome, I’ll shave my head, wear Monk Robes, and follow Euri around all day.
