That's a pvp/grind 40/0/21 with a lot of wasted points for instances & raids. It'll crit left and right but the problem is, as others noted, that stuff won't be frozen. Poof! there goes most of your damage. Trash mobs will be but you'll be a threat yo-yo driving the tank nuts when you go from the bottom to over with two ice lances in two seconds for 5000 damage. Been there, got screamed at, and deserved the abuse.The build Delilah linked is the 40/0/21 to use. Reach is ridiculously good and the rest just works. It's my build (well, got a point in frostbite just 'cause...I shouldn't).The arcane/fire is probably most mana efficient if you ride the rotation really carefully but you give up range and laziness*. (Lazy: I'm a fan. Pewpew.) Poking around on the test server, trying builds. Losing the back-to-back iceblock just sucks. If you're blocking PVE everyone in a run is dieing and you'll need to snap and block again Real Soon to stay alive. Might finally give up and go with fire and grab that tasty Slow talent.Sorry if I'm beating up on the person offering his or her build. It's a standard one, just wrong for the intended use. Good for pvp, good for solo grinding (though I'd go deeper frost and grab the elemental for the distance nova--can't get that any other way in talents, from any class). Takes balls to put up your spec for others to poke. :)*Can also do the 40/0/21 and point out missiles instead of the Delilah build. Good and bad: ride clearcasting (which you're doing anyway) for less threat but break channel if you need to avoid add or boss effect. No interruption while soloing on the clearcast.
