As a PvE frost mage, you shouldn't have the talent that frost nova's mobs on ice barrier breaking (unless you are running heroics in your pvp spec, which would be acceptable if that's your only spec). Casting ice barrier itself is a dps loss; and really, if you are dying in heroics without ice barrier up, you're either getting really bad healers or really bad tanks who can't hold aggro. Only places I can think where ice barrier really helps is on keristrasza and garfrost (unavoidable stacking AoE); but then again, if you are arcane and keep your frost ward up, that helps immeasurably more.Most pve frost mages take Ice barrier as a filler talent, but not the extra talents that cause it to have a 100% chance to frost nova on breaking.
