So with no IMP WE does that mean that we will lose the extra 15 secs that the WE is out? Maybe Blizzard will just increase the time that the regular WE is out by 15 secs? Otherwise it is a huge DPS loss for Frostmages.

Seconding frozencore's statement. The extra 15 seconds on the elemental makes a big difference on the frost mage's dps. That's 15 seconds of extra damage, mana regen, and 15 less seconds wasted cooldown time. Please don't nerf our blue buddy.

It is actually more like 30 seconds when you are considering coldsnap and possibly even 45 or more depending on the length of the fight. Especially when you have the glyph that reduces the CD on your summon WE spell.I am confident Blizzard won't nerf the WE for frost mages as we are already on the low raid DPS spectrum comparable to other classes.

My thoughts exactly. The mana tick is nice, but that extra 15 sec of WE has made grinding a lot easier, and saved my troll mage bacon (mmmm... troll bacon) more times than I care to count in pvp. And as the article poster stated, Frost dps is low, and irritating as hell considering we're supposed to be a pure DPS class across the board, regardless of spec. Losing 15 sec of WE is certainly a nerf if it happens.
