  • Ice Nova on CD if the target doesn't have the IN debug
  • Frostfire Bolt if Brain Freeze is up
  • Ice Lances on FoF expiry or asap if Bomb talent not taken
  • Jet if a boss fight or else Freeze. Follow-up Frostbolts / Lances as appropriate
  • Comet
  • Fillers: Frost Bolt or Frostfire Bolt as per player level

General Rotation Notes
Sometimes, if you are unable to follow the rotation closely, certain abilities will just not be suggested in the queue. This is probably because preconditions to establish optimal use of the ability were not met. Additionally, some cool downs are very specific in terms of the movement/static nature of a fight, upcoming mobs, etc and so cannot be reliably included.

(It is possible to exclude abilities from a rotation, and yet still display their CD/availability.)

Notes Specific to the Frost Mage Module
A player reported a Rune of Power problem so removed from the rotation while under investigation. RoP is not actually a recommended talent anyways. MI is mostly preferred for most fights.

You might prefer to exclude Icy Veins or other CDs from the rotation. Possible via the /wdw coo Panel's "Exclude" section.

Comet has been given a very very low priority for such a high level talent, based entirely upon player experiences off the web. I am dubious but have followed this. Somebody please report awesome multiple crits etc if they do indeed occur with the right gear lol.

Tier 16 2p/4p bonus rotations are deprecated. I could add these on request. Note that current raid gear requires Tier 17.

* Brilliance Buff *
Dalaran Brilliance / Arcane Brilliance bring a +10% Spell Power buff and +5% Crit buff to groups. This is better than a Shaman's Burning Wrath buff and does NOT overwrite the +10% Stamina of a Warlock's Dark Intent. If a BM Hunter is present then it shouldn't be choosing a pet to give the Still Water buff. Similar logic with respect to Crit buffs such as LotWT, LotP, FH, etc. Thus: Always cast AB/DB if it is not present (on yourself - to save checking everyone).

I encourage others to suggest their own ideas, perhaps even upload your own module if you have some LUA skills. I am happy to assist.

Cookies, Beer & Donations
It is all about the cookies & beer although, and don't let Gallywix know about this, a "thank you" in the comments section fuels my programming appetite and is very much appreciated. And then, you could cut straight to Donate to lend your support! because as Gallywix would say... "time is money, friend".


  • Added Frost Nova (intending Ice Nova) to the default list of CDs
  • Prevent Ice Nova from appearing in pos #1 if target has the debuff already
  • Added Rune of Power. Same priority as Mirror Image
  • Now checks for minimum WDW version as a help to keep things up to date


  • Update TOC file for Patch 6.1


  • Stand alone AddOn (requiring We Don't Wipe v4.00) but hopefully Wowinterface & Curse compatible


  • Adjust priority of Brain Freeze procs
  • Now works well if player did NOT choose Frost Bomb but went for Ice Nova / Unstable Magic instead
  • Phantom Ice Lances unrelated to any proc/CD now removed from rotation


  • Complete rewrite of the Frost Mage rotation
  • Rune of Power removed for the time being as I cannot test Blizzard's changes properly yet. Mirror Image is by far better for single target fights anyway
  • Prismatic Crystal support is BETA!!! Please give feedback
  • Incanter's Flow *might* be added later with a visible charge


  • Added Comet Storm (lowest priority lol) for those who really must lol
  • Rune of Power icon fix
  • In-game rotation Note updated


  • New rotation for Warlords of Draenor


  • Version number bump for Patch 6.0.3


  • Rotations completely revamped / corrected / prepared for Tier 16 gear bonuses


  • Filler spell now correctly suggests Frostfire Bolt for players below level 12

    You MUST have version 4.04 of WDW. Link is above.

    As per the change log.

    Improvement to Ice Nova and RoP are good to have.

  • #43

    No need to manually place this into the WDW Modules folder. I am hopeful that the Curse Installer works with this new schema.

    From now on, it looks like a normal AddOn, except everything gets executed from the main WDW module.

    Patch 6.1 Changes

    Correct me if I am wrong somebody but the only change is Comet Storm? And it might actually be viable in the rotation?

    Anything else I need to know?

  • #40

    There is another mage with same spec as me that always smashes the meters no matter what i can do.. this addon has helped me to learn the frost rotation - but im wondering is there any tweaking needed to the current rotation to maximize the dps output ? 

    EU-Silvermoon - zerokewl vs EU-silvermoon - falkwen are the characters... 

    Thanks for your efforts so far, great addon :)


  • #41

    I removed Rune of Power support. I forget which website it was reported but a user of WDW said it was broken. I doubt that actually. If you could tolerate me making an extra rotation with RoP included AND it possibly not working then I will do so. I only need to cut and paste the code.

    WDW has never suggested the optimal time to pot/trinc.

    WDW is a SINGLE target AddOn so any boss fight involving adds, multiple bosses (Twins etc), phased mechanics, etc is really an exercise up to you. (any AddOn would need to code for EVERY boss fight in every instance)

    There are mechanics for multiple mobs for decent DPS as a Frost Mage. This AddOn (no AddOn really) doesn't help.

    And the annoying need to judge if the non-boss mob will still be alive when you finish casting.

    By the way: Prismatic Crystal working okay in the AddOn?

    As per the change log. Ice Nova now properly supported as a quite viable talent choice and Brain Freeze procced Frostfire Bolts deserved more love than their previous lowly priority position!

  • #38
    v2.02 Rewritten

    Vastly better this time around. Less paniced about all my AddOns needing tons of work when WoD hit. Very slow to update due to IRL situation including no internet for a few weeks.

    NOTE: I CANNOT test the Crystal logic yet. I will level up asap but in the mean time do not hesitate to call me out for all errors or anything dodgy. Thanks in advance.

  • #32

    hm, the rotation needs some tweeking.


    Frostbolt -> Warerjet -> Mirror Images->Frozen Orb ->Icy Veins-> Prismatic Cristal-> Frostbomb-> Ice lance Ice lance etc.

    Besides that: Your Modul says hit Frozen Orb even though the Cristal isn't about to finish in all the guide I've read people say only use the Orb if the Cristal is about to come up, the only time you use the frozen orb without the cristal is when the target is about to die in the next 5 seconds.

    Don't get me wrong I'm still trying to get the max DPS out and I'm failing because I'm missing the timings alot and you tool will help to fix that!  thank you for your effort.

  • #33

    Rotation needs more than just tweeking but thanks for your diplomacy. In the next day or two a total rewrite will be uploaded. More info later :)

    I must say though, as a veteran Frost Mage player, in WoD this time around we have a quite sophisticated rotation which poses some dilemmas at times as to whether to use an ability now or hold off for a bit longer, etc. Good job Blizzard as it keeps the game interesting.

    Evocation really needs taking out of frosts rotation, as it's not a spell we can use as frost anymore.

    For now I've edited out ( And am not saying its picking it up because of rune, it's classing MI as Evocation when it's not( Talent 16)).

    Prior to Warlords of Draenor, AddOns had to resort to smoke and mirrors to test for and display Rune of Power or Evocation. And yes, an Evocation Spell ID for Rune of Power had to be used at times. The code worked flawlessly back then. was posted by myself back then.

    I get really frustrated when Blizzard use internal sleight of hand with Spells as there is no system and it obviously is up to the individual programming teams to do as they want.

    I just prefer things to be follow a transparent set of rules and not appear to be thrown together lol.

    it seems ice nova does not show up in the rotation and frost nova cycles off of pets casting

  • #29

    Having trouble downloading via curse client, says download is starting but nothing appears in my download screen please fix!

  • #35

    The Curse client needs to be fixed. It does not support genuine modularisation. I would need to add ACE libraries into the AddOn for the Curse client to work. You need to look at the description of the AddOn for the very easy instalation procedure. Quite trivial really.

  • #28

    How can I skills like Evocation delete out of my rotation?
    because it don't exist in WoW for frost mages
