Clearly you have no idea what you are talking about. The Arcane Blast was never intended to be the primary nuke, it was a mana dump. Arcane Missiles were intended to be the primary nuke. Now with rebalancing Arcane Barrage is the primary nuke and you fill the gaps in with Arcane Blast and Missile Barrage procs. A very powerful and interactive rotation, if you crunch the numbers.And Fingers of Frost are best used to cast one Frostbolt (that you are already casting when you notice the debuff) and then follow up with a Deep Freeze and then keep spamming Frostbolts onto the deep frozen target. Also the Water Elemental brings added complexity to the spec.

"The Arcane Blast was never intended to be the primary nuke, it was a mana dump. Arcane Missiles were intended to be the primary nuke."Agreed, and they finally made missiles worthwhile. The tree is still a godawful mess though, and Blizzard continues to flounder with it. The 300% is definitely overkill.The problem with the mana dump idea conceptually is that it's either a) overpowered with enough support to go flat out all the time or b) not worth using at all, ie., being arcane when the other trees give better DPS. They blew that BC and while Lich is looking better it's still off.
