    Question [Question] Frost T17 2PC

    Once you cast the FO every cast Ice Lance adds a stack to your buff, up to 10 stacks (which is rarely happening other than having all trinkets and Hero up, but that's not the point here).

    Question: is it worth casting ice lance even w/o proccs to stack up the buff as high as possible and then cast your 3-5 frostbolts? Or should ice lance only be cast during frozen orb uptime when you have the proccs?

    Side question/discussion: With 4PC this will be easier I guess, generating a procc every 2.5 seconds? Same as above though, in case here are not enough proccs.

    No one, really? :> Hm.

    Correct me if i'm wrong, but the gain of each stack does not extend the 10 sec duration right?

    So blowing off a bunch of non proc ice lances in order to get 1 maybe 2 frostbolts near the end with slightly more stacks...nope not worth it. Stick to only IL on procs.

    I correct you: every lance resets the timer. And each lance increases the buff, making the FB 2 seconds faster and 2% stronger each stack. Reaching 10 w/o the 4PC and possibly a lot of haste is really hard.

    Also you get usually 5-6 frost bolts with +20% damage out.

    I can see that everyone seems to be rolling in the "Fire/Arcane" thanks to Blizzards idiocy. However, I am sure there are some talented frosties out there that could answer the question - or may be in search as well

    Idd.

    @OT, I dont think that Would be worth it. You Are really global capped in the opener as frost, and not using Them efficienctly to stack a mediocre buff seems like a loss.

    Not worth it from my napkin math. (Did them a while ago, so don't have them by hand exactly, just remember it not being worth it)
