Actually, the Frost Mage from WoW is quite alright after all! Blizzard's developers probably thought so, too, and left the mage specialization largely alone during the rework for the upcoming expansion World of Warcraft: Legion. The changes are in the details and the talents. But what is it actually supposed to achieve? The new class introduction gives a hint:
"Frost mages stand out among their mage peers because their magic variant is all about keeping their opponents' abilities under control. Mages who command frost use their abilities icily on the battlefield, holding their opponents captive so that they can strike at them with frosty spells. Often, their blades don't even come close to the spellcaster before they find themselves in the stranglehold of the icy cold."
Aha, apparently controlling the opponent is at the forefront of the gameplay. In fact, there are now even more talents that can slow down or completely freeze the opponent. The most important change, however, directly affects one of the main abilities, because... Frostfire Lightning... belongs to history. Instead, Frost Mages now cast a Frozen Orb in between normal combat. Using a new level 100 talent, they can melt all the ice shards into a massive icicle and hurl it at enemies. Rumble! In the video, we show you exactly how the individual abilities have changed and what the new talents and artifact weapon do.
