Breakfast Topic: How will you use the transmogrification feature? {WoW}

Aug 18th 2011 12:32PM I intend to transmogriphy (is that the right spelling?) my Glyph of the Treant onto my armor. With any luck and a just god, this will result in the old tree form, except permanent and without any bonuses. Then when I shapeshift, it'll be like I evolved. Pokedruids FTW.

Arcane Brilliance: Addons your mage should probably be using {WoW}

Aug 13th 2011 7:02PM Or one to help me find my warlock corpses. I just get so busy and there's never enough time to drag them to the trophy room...

Arcane Brilliance: Addons your mage should probably be using {WoW}

Aug 13th 2011 6:56PM I have yet to add many specifically-for-Mage addons, and this is a very helpful list to pursue this endeavor. As always, Archmage Pants, I salute you. But I do wonder: is there an addon whose purpose is to aid the inexperienced Frost Mage, as there apparently is for both fire and arcane? Something that informs us whether our current target is frozen perhaps? Or that tells you which mob is aggroed onto the healer and needs to be frozen?

Arcane Brilliance: The state of the frost mage {WoW}

Aug 8th 2011 1:45PM Which of course doesn't even consider survivability. I cannot count the number of times that the tank and even the healer have died, and I grab aggro, set up a ring of frost, put up ice barrier, and Mage tanked to victory.

Arcane Brilliance: The state of the frost mage {WoW}

Aug 8th 2011 1:29PM Absolutely. And don't forget frostfire orb, of the extra damage and the many procs. In a good burndown phase, I'll pop icy veins, frostfire orb, freeze, and deep freeze all in two gcds, then start throwing out FFB and ice lance almost every cooldown, supported by the orb. Then cold snap and do it all over again. Meanwhile if I'm about to get hit I pop mirror images. In short, with two procs and four damage cooldowns, plus a way to refresh those cooldowns at will, frost has an incredible potential for burn phases. The only thing that holds my dps back in trash fights is the instinct to save those long cooldowns for the boss. If cold snap came off cooldown whenever we leave combat(except by invisiblity), frost would be the top performer nearly without fail.

Arcane Brilliance: The two-button mage myth {WoW}

Jul 17th 2011 9:33AM This is good to hear, because it's how I've always played my beloved frost mage. Especially with the glyph of FFB, it's important to maintain that small stack of DoTs so your enemies continue to burn with a cold fire. This is the only DoT that Frost Mages have, and spreading it around whenever you can to whoever needs it is important, and it becomes even more valuable, important, and goddamn sexy with the tier 12 set bonus making Brain Freeze so frequent. It makes me want to take some extra fire talents for additional freezeful burnination.
