:( I love my Frostfire spec. I'll never go arcane or anything else D: I can't seem to play arcane, it just hurts to faceroll and feel like a cloth pally. Ah well, I have faith in Blizz and someday we will get our deserved buff :D

Have to agree, I've been frostfire spec for ages, but sadly it just doesn't compete anymore with other specs.I refuse to spec arcane, it's so boring to play, and every mage and his dog has specced that way.One thing i did try recently was a frost-heavy frostfire spec. Taking advantage of the new frost changes (deep freeze [some HUGE crits there], and the permanant elemental). It was probaly the most enjoyable mage spec i've ever played. Sadly the damage just wasn't quite there.

I admit I love the Randomness of Fire and Frostfire, its just mad enough to feel more fun than arcane. It would be nice if the Strings of bad luck could be at least reduced, but fire and frostfire need to feel like the crazy proc based specs. I currently raid fire as Frostfire was lacking impact, and like i think all of the non-arcane mages out there, Im not going arcane because its just too common and too dull.

Well, when you get lucky and hot streak procs like crazy, you just feel like the king of the world. It's a beautiful symphony of destruction. I'll never be top DPS playing Frostfire, but I won't change specs and lose all the fun my mage gives me. One day, we will be at the top.. just u wait :D

I love it too, but I think a better fix than suggested in the article: "Things I'd like to see happen for frostfire: The only thing I can really think of here is also the simplest thing: buff Frostfire Bolt. "would be to add decreased cast time to one of the existing talents instead. Right now it is already pretty powerful, but PAINFULLY slow. It is definitely the "slow" cousin to frostbolt and fireball. In fact, between its long cast time and having to keep improved scorch and living bomb up and hit pyroblast whenever it procs, i can practically NEVER get more than two FFBs off in a row, which sucks considering its our primary nuke. In highly mobile fights sometimes i'm lucky just to get 2 off in a row.
