    Frost-viable with the buffs?

    With the new hotfixes today (Ice lance +20% damage, waterbolt +10% damage) will frost be competitive with fire and arcane? I long to go back frost on progression, but i get heckled for playing it. Does anyone have math and sims?

    We were already viable. Competitive? Probably still not.

    Math and sims aren't accurate

    No but they give an idea of what to expect. However, when you're dealing with just a damage increase to a spell already used along with WE damage, its pretty easy to estimate what the output will be.

    As to being relevant to OP, its a needed buff but won't really change frost's position in the long run. It's still fine, and will be better for longer compared to arcane, but once you're hitting 545-550 ilvl arcane/fire will more than likely be better.
