Ok real problem, if you have the frostbolt glyph, how are you going to get Fingers of Frost to proc in a boss fight? Also I think its been said way too much for today's raiding frost mages (they claim to do it) that Ice Lance still isn't that great with all delays accounted for. I'd say the mage/molten armor glyph would be better

Bosses are immune to the chill effect. So having the Glyph of Frostbolt won't hinder the Finger of Frost proc. So as long as you have FoF i nyour build you will still gain the buff from TotW. Also since they are changing back Frozen Core, the 3 points in there are useless.http://ptr.wowhead.com/?talent#of0i0u0cZZVIccofu0fzgbst:RqGozcEven though this is the ptr talent calculator. I went and made the spec to follow with the changes made on the ptr. I feel that having 3/3 in Imp Water Elemental will be better for the raid for the mana regen. Also not having 2/2 Cold as Ice to me is dumb. Only for the fact that it also lowers your Cold Snap cd. And by having that you can gain a double Icy Veins run every time it comes off cd with Icy Veins. And that will also give a dps gain.

I haven't touched frost in pve in a long while. FoF actually will proc off your frostbolts even if glyphed, I already knew they procced off bosses while immune pre-glyphs. Made a spec that can't possibly gain more single target DPS. http://ptr.wowhead.com/?talent#of0q0u0fZZVIscofu0fzgbkt:RfGI don't see how having more than 1/3 Enduring winter can give you or your raid any more mana unless you are running away from something and not casting.

Reason I went with 3/3 is due to that very rare chance that you don't have someone in the raid that is spected for the regen. Its a good chance that not every 10man run will have some sort of it. So if you have a frost mage then that will make up for the lack of a shadow priest,pally,hunter.
