Actually, from the beta forums, apparently they had recently added Frostfire Bolt to Fingers of Frost. That and the fact that Frost is able to get Ignite makes Frostfire almost better than Frostbolt. In fact, there was speculation that if FFB wasn't taken off FoF, the only time you'd use Frostbolt would be to refresh your mastery, preferably with Early Frost.Though, hopefully they realize the folly of this, and take FFB back off or restrict the benefit to only when it's instant. Though, if they're able to find an interesting balance, they could almost make a Frostfire spec viable. It seems they're trying to make it the fast-cast snare, with only situational use as a damaging spell.I hope they rename Intellect to Brilliance. They're making us wait till high levels to learn it anyway, why not give it the stronger name?I too am sad about losing my conjured water at lower levels. They did say that lower level regeneration would be good enough where we didn't need to drink so much, but just the fact that we could conjure our own water was awesome, and it will be sad to wait so long for it. Polymorph: Damn Dirty Ape is pretty cool though. So is mobile Scorch. With Starcraft 2 out, anyone want to imagine we'll see fire mages named Hellion?

I still think 10 points into Frost is going to viable for Fire Mages especially for leveling as well as bolster the effects of FFB especially for openings. Since I am hearing horror stories that 80 + regualr mobs can almost two shot a well gear'd Plate wearer in Cat. Snares, stuns and the occasional nasty crit will be our friends.
