Rotation (Summary)

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

    There is an error confusing Evocation with Mirror images.
    Lines 277-282 should be changed to:

    if wdw_hasTalent["16"] == 1 then -- Mirror Image
    if wdw_buffsPlayer["55342"] then -- Mirror Image buff
    AddToQueue(55342,-1,wdw_buffsPlayer["55342"].expires) -- Mirror Image
    else
    AddToQueue(55342,1,0)
    end

    Interesting. You are pasting in code from an old version. Make sure you are running v2.01, even v2.00 didn't have that code.

    But... it remains that I did make a change between v2.00 and v2.01 to that block of code. Not Mirror Image but code within that block was using the old Pandaria spell ID for Rune of Power. Warlords now usues a different spell ID for RoP.

    Spell IDs somtimes change based upon when a class learns that spell and whether it replaces another spell temporarily or as one levels.

    I had gotten my version from Curse, but I now see it was 
    ["Version"] = "1.02 for Patch 5.4",
    The version I just got tonight is
    ["Version"] = "2.00 for Patch 6.0.3",

    Not sure how I got the old file. Sorry for the confusion!

    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.

  • #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.
