65 level later… i figure out how to play an Frost Mage in Warcraft

Prior to finding out how to play my ice mage, the way i was playing was the following:

I would use frostbolt, followed by Ice Lance, over and over. I didn’t understand what Finger of Forst was and how it worked with a frost mage until i read a DPS guide on Icy Veins.

So now i use the following:

  • Water Elemental’s: Freeze (i’ve bound this to Alt + 1 key). This freezes the enemy and generates a Finger of Forst.
  • Frostbolt
  • Ice Lance — which will hit for a crit from the freeze above

If  my Water Elemental’s Freeze is down i will do the following

  • Frozen Orb — which will also generate a Finger of forst for me
  • Frostbolt
  • Ice Lance

I also make sure i keep Ice Barrier and ice Ward up on my character most of the time. And that is pretty much my rotation. With that said, Tomarrow is Pre patch day and i will have to completely relearn Frost Mage after just learning it.
