Rotation (Summary)

  • Arcane or Dalaran Brilliance
  • Water Elemental
  • Rune of Power or Mirror Image

  • Frost Bomb / Frozen Orb / Ice Lance / Freeze (conditional)
  • Frostfire Bolt if Brain Freeze is up
  • Ice Nova
  • 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
While there is significant decision making logic for the Frost Bomb / Frozen Orb / Ice Lance / Freeze abilities it remains that Frost Mages have a rather trivial rotation. That is the nature of Frost Mages. A Frost Mage therefore is a good "starter" class to play (although while levelling you will very significantly be below other classes for instance DPS).

Your Tier 7 talents just cannot be included in a rotation for reliable DPS. You may care to add your Prismatic Crystal to your cool down display.

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.

    Warlords Ready

    First module to be updated for Warlords. Not for want of trying. I have a new account so each and every class must be levelled. Reluctant to say which is already level 93 and which are around level 80 for fear of gettings peoples hopes up lol.

    Obviously Arcane or Fire will follow very soon.

    One potential bug, I cannot test as I am too low level:

    It appears Blizzard have changed some ID numbers of the "Icon" used to show Rune of Power and/or the Arcane Mage's Evocation. Last expansion I managed to suss out a fix (Blizzard appeared to have the IDs mixed up) but this time around I am not sure what will appear on the screen. I suspect they have attempted an internal fix. Please report ASAP if RoP is not showing correctly/crashing this module.

    hello there 

    that is great jop mate 

    can you make for hunters 

    thats will be nice

  • #16

    Hello, how can activate Boss+AT module ? I want to see alter time in my main rotation and dont want to see water elemental's freeze ability in my main rotation. 

  • #17

    In game notes for the AddOn will explain things quite well. You can also edit a rotation in game too in so far as removing things or adding things to the queue. The brave could also edit the raw file and I provide a few pointers in the notes/template you obtain with the main file download.

  • #13

    Is there a way you can change your rotation or add presence of mind

  • #15

    PoM is considered by pro players to be a total waste of a valuable GCD. If you follow the rotation closely you will have little need to get rid of casting time. Time would be better spent assessing the situation and flasking/potting for example.

    There is little joy for Frost Mages with our Tier 1 talents.

  • #11

    Hi there

    First of all, love your addon. Can you tell me how I can boost the priority of living bomb though? For some reason it seems to delay using it when it falls off for some reason when I thought it was a top prio to have it up all the time?

  • #14

    If you look at the way I list the rotation (above in the comments) you will see that your bomb is a very high priority. Of course your Brilliance (raid/party) wide is more important and your Elemental too but these will very rarely need to jump in above the bomb.

    Go to a target dummy and watch carefully. The bomb willl reliably trigger.

    One thing that might confuse you. If the bomb is NOT in the first position then that means that it is not ready to use. I am merely flagging that it will be required for a refresh soon. It will slide across to the left as the urgency of the refresh approaches.

  • #10

    For some reason I can not download this addon

    Nathyiel Rocks!

    Hi. Awesome addon. by far my fav :) 

    Found a possible issue, I found the AT and BOSS + AT rotations dont ever suggest I use alter time, or icy veins so I use the Party module for Boss fights and levelling when out in the wild.  This all works a treat :D

    However when I glyph icy viens WDW doesnt seen to detect I have cast icy veins. Icy Viens stays in the main square. If I remove that glyph all good again.

    Cheers

     

  • #7

    My reply (below)  got quite technical for Icy Veins (sorry). I want this AddOn to appeal to a broad spectrum of players  and in particular this module as the Frost Mage was my very first toon and is my old main.

    I would like to suggest a "middle ground" or "compromise" Alter Time rotation. One that is less than optimal but guarantees an AT within a short time of starting the fight.

    Any suggestions from anyone?
