Oct 24th 2010 4:30AM Nice article as always. Loved the elemental tip. Styx will be eternally grateful :D
Keep it up.
Aug 22nd 2010 12:01AM Congrats for the new baby Christian.
I 'm really looking fwd to the changes (don't we all?) and hope that Frosties will be accepted as a viable raid spec in Cata.
I have to admit that my personal experience in raiding is limited as I 'm a casual player. However, I have seen a good few Frosties pulling of silly amounts of damage in raids. I 'm not saying they are the most effective but they can surely pull their weight.
All the best again!
P.S. Another effective technique to tackle eye peeing is to buy yourself a pair of goggles :P
Jul 5th 2010 11:32PM All this seems interesting, to say the least.
A question for frosties; Since deathfrost will increase all dmg spells except frostbolt, would it be most preferable to skip brain freeze on a raiding frost build?
That's on the basis that brain freeze will cancel the AM to proc so you have one less buffed spell in your arsenal. Which can also be boosted a further 9% from IAM.
Share your thoughts, please, fellow mages.
Apr 12th 2010 5:32AM I think your eagerness to prove your offensive point, even when people clearly show you they do not appreciate your comments, proves the exact opposite.
P.S. Maybe you should take a glimpse at your own life and try to assess what is driving you towards Internet fora, leading you to try and offend people, unprovoked.
Apr 12th 2010 3:50AM Ok for a moment there, I believed everything this trolLock wrote. Revenge is inevitable :)
Seriously now, I thought I would go for a quadruple bypass today but fortunately it's all lies.
I even had nightmares about this during last night. Please do not do this kind of jokes as they could prove really hazardous for the older magi.
Mar 6th 2010 7:22AM I 've been reading the column for quite some time but this is my first comment.
I 'm an occasional player, still learning my frost mage, loving every minute of it. I have very little raiding experience and love PvP. However, I still suck in it :)
I welcome the changes and hopefully it will help us become a bit more popular in the raiding world.
I have an arcane spec as well but I love frost so much that I hardly ever switch to my secondary spec. It's not cause I think it's superior. It's just my preference.
One thing I would really love to see disappearing from the game is this math competition about dps. Ok I understand, the mobs and bosses have to be killed. But it's a game on the other hand and we need to enjoy it more.
Then again this comes from an occasional player.
I salute every mage in the world. Christian, thnx for the nice columns, they have really helped me understand my mage better ;)
