And if you're leveling as Frost, don't forget to pick up Hungering Cold. A lot of people skip it as 'useless' in a raid environment but if you accidentally grab a few more mobs than you can handle burn your frost runes on Howling Blast then hit Hungering Cold. You've now got a quite healthy buffer of time where they sit there and take disease damage, and you can hit that never-before-used "Bandage" button.Plus, emergency AoE CC in a cata dungeon could be a real healer-saver :)

It's been a pre-req for Howling Blast since 4.0.1, so no one skips it anymore (assuming they have half a brain), but good tips on usage. I glyphed mine to make it free, because the Majors are not great for Frost PVE.

You're quite right that it's now a pre-req, I probably could have worded that better :)I know a few people who grumble, grudgingly put a point into it, maybe put it on some far corner of their action bars and never use it.Agreed on glyphing it, I did the same :)
