Frost Bomb and premature explosion.
I have been using Fire blast in my rotation in conjunction with frost bomb, using the glyph of a fireblast to prematurely explode my frost bomb, based off of noxxic's recommendations. Most people frown upon Noxxic, but so far it's the only site I've seen that can provide a good starter for any class for pve or pvp. Fact is, many top mages on my server claim that, according to elitistjerks, premature frost bomb pops cause a 50% reduction in damage dealt by frost bomb on the target, and I have seen other mages demonstrate this before. The problem is that, no matter how many time I do this on my mage, I cannot reproduce similar results. Both rotations, one including fire blast, the other excluding it, produce about the same damage output from frost bomb, and similar DPS.
What's the big deal here? Which side is correct?
Am I doing something wrong on my mage? Character is http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/chogall/Tarinkowt/advanced
And crap armory has me saved in my pvp stuff >> I guess wait for it to update my pve stuff....
