As for the useless PvE speccs, frost mages are indeed a very good example.Even if you pick up all the necessary PvE glyphs (removing snare from Frostbolt for one) and dump all the uselful PvP talents in favor of PvE talents (mostly in the arcane tree), you will still be way under Frostfire, Fire and Arcane mages in damage output. What you end up with is a specc that is neither good in PvP (lack of snares and survivability) nor in PvE (lack of damage).

I don't believe that Frost is completely useless - it's handy as a secondary raiding spec for when you're on adds or in an AOE-heavy or really long fight. I raid with Arcane as my main spec, for when I'm just responsible for DPSing, and Frost as off-spec for XT, Razorscale, or Mimiron.It would be nice if they gave us a useful 51 pt talent, though.

@liuAny FFB spec would be superior as a PvE offspec to Frost as you cite. You still get imp. blizzard for AoE and more mana than you can shake a suspiciously wand shaped stick at.
