I'm a mage, even, and I use frost grenades all the time. It's a ranged nova in addition to the ones we already have on cooldowns. Frost mages get 1 frost nova, 1 elemental ranged nova (3 minute pet cooldown, 30 second nova cooldown), and mage engineers get frost grenades. PvP-BG'sThis can be a tasty arsenal for kiting, CCing, and yet another way to get increased burst damage (Shatter FTW). People waste their silences on it, and it's amazing for setting up combos. Yet, with the material cost, I only use them if I'm being ganked (for example, I completely turned the tide on a hunter by using this on him and frost nova on his pet) or if I'm in a premade, solo guarding a tower or something.PvEBelieve it or not, these grenades have many PvE applications when you're AoEing as a mage. You can frost grenade and unleash blizzard on the murlocs in SSC, for example, or on the poison elementals in Hydross. Ranged Frost Nova > Being next to mobs you're AoEing.
