The most popular Frost Mage’s Talent Spec in 3.3.5 for arenaThere could be some other variations, but all important core talents are taken here.
GlyphsMajor: Glyph of Ice Barrier, Glyph of Evocation / Glyph of Mirror Image, Glyph of Icy Veins
Mage statsYou need 130 spell penetration and 5%-6% hit rating (6% because for example retri paladins have talent which decrease chance to hit them, also if you have chosen hit chance in talents than you need less).
Top priority stats : haste and spell power.
Few words about gear:
As we are talking about private servers, the gear that available for us depends on a server.
Don’t take cloth with spirit, mp5, you also don’t need much crit, because talents give you +50% crit chance on frozen targets. Choose haste:) faster frost bolts, less global cooldown, faster polymorphs FTW
Dueling as frost mage.
Before any duel buff yourself: Intellect, Dampen magic, against meelee classes use Ice Armor, against casters – Magic Armor. Mana Shield, Ice Barrier.
It’s better to start duel when you have Ice Barrier buff and it is not on a cooldown, for refreshing it after first one is broken. So yeah, you can wait a bit before pressing accept:)
Don’t forget to use mana gems.
Duel against destruction warlockDestruction warlocks are hard for frost mages. Though its a good practice to level up your skills. In most situations warlock should win:)
- Counter spell his fire school of magic not shadow. The best spell to counter spell is immolate.
- If he was lucky to cast immolate – spell steal the 3 stacked buff that increases his cast speed for next three destruction spells;
- Use fire ward;
- Fake cast his pet’s spell lock. After you successfully did it. You can pop cooldonwns Icy Veins, copies.
- You can keep small distance to blink behind warlock when he is about to finish cast. Save blink for shadowfury.
- When Ice Barrier is broken, counter spell and deep freeze on cooldown – use Ice Block. Wait till cooldowns reset.
- Make sure you have used all your important cooldowns before using Cold Snap (Ice Barrier, Ice Block, Deep Freeze);
- Cast some fire magic spells and spell steal warlocks damage reduction buff for fire school
- Run around lock and cast instant spells so he can’t face you to cast.
- Cast evocation when shadowfury and spell lock is on cooldown or when warlock is in deep freeze.
- Decurse yourself.
