Frost may be king in Areans for PVP, but in BG's Fire is where it's at. Fire with 19/52/0 build is great for BG's. AOE from fire is much better than frost in BG's. Casting blizzard is an invitation to a quick death, but LB and instant flame strike do alot of damage. I am usually in the top three in HK's and damage done running BG's with fire. Don't have to worry about warrior spell reflect with Dragons Breath and Blast Wave. If you haven't tried it you should. Get the scorch and living bomb glyphs and have a ball.I don't know why Christian clings to the fantasy that frost is currently viable in ICC Raiding. It's not unless your guild doesn't care about sub par DPS. I have tried at least 3 times with frost in ICC and the gap is just to large. In a fight like Putricide or Blood Queen having lack luster DPS will really gimp your raid. Mages are brought to raids for DPS. There is a reason why frost is so far back in that survey sighted. It's not just overall DPS it's burst DPS as well. That last 35% on purticide for instance. There is a chasm of difference in the burst I can do in that last 35% with Arcane as opposed to Frost. Same with the Queen fight. At this point in gearing you can probably get away with frost for the first wing, but beyond that, unless you have 10 or 25 man heroic gear it's not viable. Even the set bonuses favor Arcane.
