Ahh, damn't Blizzard. First off, the consensus is right. Deep Freeze is a Deep Farce. We kite well enough as it is, we don't need a 5 second stun that a Rogue will just weasel out of and then continue on his quest to rape us. We didn't need to be nerfed in the slightest. I mean, this makes Brain Freeze essentially useless for end game encounters against bosses. Since they are immune to all movement impairing effects, this will never fire off. I really enjoy the extra 2000 damage every 6th or 7th spell. Bah humbug! But please, by all means, up Warlocks damage by another 10 percent. Jerks.

This doesn't make Brain Freeze useless for end game at all. It only procs off spells that CAN chill, they don't HAVE to chill. It was only inserted to remove free Fireballs from Ice Lances.Also, I don't consider Deep Freeze consuming a charge of Fingers of Frost to be a nerf, I think it's a bug fix. Why wouldn't a frost spell that requires the target to be frozen not consume a charge of an ability that acts as if the target is frozen? Considering you can fire off Deep Freeze when Fingers of Frost is up and the target isn't actually frozen makes it seem even more like a bug fix.Also, if you don't pvp, you don't take this talent. It's that simple. And if you do pvp, you'd realize by now that this is a very nice talent. It sucks that it's not viable for both, but if you truly only pve why are you in the frost tree anyway?

The reason it shouldn't cost a charge of FoF is because Deep Freeze does no damage. FoF was basically put in the game so that you didn't have to root a target (like a 5-man boss or raid boss that is immune) to get your crit bonus ALL of the time. In PVP when my FoF pops, I don't have time to cast a frostbolt and I'm running around kiting like a glass cannon should, I have two 3x damage Ice Lances with a VERY good chance to crit. This isn't a huge nerf, but very much (as Eliah puts it) a "nerfling."
