* 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.

The selection of what to display for Cooldowns in the mini icon rows is a personal thing. I have thrown in some ideas but you should really customise for your liking. It is very possible to show a cooldown and yet to exclude it from appearing in the main rotation icons. This would avoid you being nagged, for example, to blow a major cool down on trash and just prior to a boss fight. Enter "/wdw coo" from chat.

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.

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 Click here to lend your support! because as Gallywix would say... "time is money, friend".

Tested again (and I use actively). Icy Veins will appear when still on CD but you will note it sliding from right to left as the CD approaches zero. At less than one GCD it will appear in position number 1.


pls don't hate me :P
icy veins on cd, suggested as next spell, cd on the cooldown bars doesn't work as well
(IV is on MainBar, slot 6)

about the enrage...
the ogres in Bloodmaul Slag Mines like to enrage as well, that's were i noticed it

Icy Veins will always appear in the little mini icons IF it is in your list of "cool downs". You can remove this from the list of icons via the "/wdw coo" chat command. Note also that if you don't want to be nagged when IV is almost ready to use but wish to decide for yourself then include IV in the list of rotation exclusions at the bottom of the interface displayed via "/wdw coo".

----------

For spellsteal I looked into that but can you give me an example. Certainly in PvP (yeah I know the AddOn is all about PvE) I rely upon it a lot. What puzzles me is that enrage effects have an empty "spell type" in the field returned by the WoW API and I test for "Magic" as spellsteal can deal only with "Magic" target buffs. So I would need an actual example and perhaps put special code in the AddOn to ignore that target buff as it is an exception to the rule or whatever.

Ideally you can provide a PvE example from a lowbie dungeon boss so I can easily run it for testing.

Edit: Just tested on a co-operative Warrior - they are a classic for Enrages. "Resolve" never gets caught by WDW as a dispel. Reason is that in game the spell type for enrages is deliberately set by Blizzard as "blank" or nothing so that they will never match dispel criteria I reckon.
