I stupidly didn't think about the fact that as a frost mage, my cold snap ability (on an 8 min CD) resets the CD on my water elemental in addition to my frost nova and ice block. So if you're not worried about using frost nova or ice block multiple times for extra defensive capabilities, you can use cold snap right after summoning the water elemental, then summon another one right after the first one disappears.IF you time it right, normally you can have your elemental up 45 seconds out of every 3 minutes, that's 25% of the time. But when you add in the cold snap, you can have it up 34% of the time.And from a mana-efficiency standpoint, the elemental has got to be the best deal in the game for a mage.

I find that on my mage, when Im doing things like arena, world pvp and sometimes bg's, im always on top of my cooldowns, never miss a beat. But I hardly ever use them when im solo grinding or in trash, I can just never remember to use them, and when I do I always want to save them for later.(PS, great name btw, one day I wanna invest in a capital letter of some sort)
