    [Frost] Pet's frostbolt noob question

    I noticed that sometimes after a single frostbolt cast i get 2 FoF procs (with no frost orb flying around).

    Does pet's frostbolt has a chance to proc FoF?

    No.

    Your successful Frostbolts, Frostfire Bolts and Frozen Orb hits have a 15% chance, your Blizzard ticks have a 5% chance.

    The Fingers of Frost effect causes your next Ice Lance or Deep Freeze to act as if your target were frozen, and increases Ice Lance damage by 25% for 15 sec.

    No it doesn't. The triple hit frostbolts just have an increased proc chance. From what I can tell procs are generated when you finish the cast not when it hits the target.

    And you can ignore the bit about scorch since that is a fire only ability now.

    Argg, I always forget that glyphed Icy veins have an hidden 1.2 multiplier to FoF proc rate. It's one of the reason it's so powerful. Especially since they remove FoF-freeze from Boss.

    Didn't they increase the chances in patch 5.2? Because we lost the FoF of pet nova. Is Icy Veins glyph worth using now? I didn't use it right because I think increase dot tick speed is also a DPS boost. I tend to use FrostFirebolt when I get over 50% haste

    Icy veins glyph was worth using and is still now, its almost mandatory with all the haste gear and trinkets we have.
