Patch 10.1 Last Updated: 24th Apr, 2023

I recommend crafting the following items for Frost embellishment:

  1. Lariat
  2. Amice of the Blue
  3. Primal Molten Spellblade (Intellect Dagger) with potion absorption inhibitor (Potion increase by 50% Embellishment)
  4. Ring/Belt with Alchemical Flavor Pocket (increase food buff duration by 100% and persist through death)
  5. Azureweave Robe 2p set. It is a stacking intellect buff with a very big uptime. Unfortunately, it counts as 2 embellishment to complete the set


For trinkets I would recommend trying to chase the following:

  1. Ragefeather from Nokkud
  2. Whispering Incarnate Icon from Primal Council in the raid
  3. Eye of Skovald from Halls of Valor
  4. Infernal Writ from Court of Stars

Frost mage Tier Set 10.1 Thoughts and Conclusions:

2p - Flurry and Ice lance damage is increased by 20%(was 15)

4p - Casting Ice lance on a frozen target has a 10% chance to trigger a Brain Freeze

Tier Set Conclusion:

The 2-piece set bonus is a straight up buff to Frost's single target damage profile, which was already a strong suit of the spec. So, more single target damage is always welcome, especially when it plays to one of our strengths.

The 4-piece set bonus has excellent synergy with our toolkit since we cast so many Ice Lances, making the 10% bonus quite significant. Moreover, with our new 2-piece set bonus and the Icy Propulsion talent helping us get more CDR on Icy Veins, the entire spec synergizes nicely and emphasizes our constant single target damage profile, which is something that Frost excels at.

Patch 10.0.7 - Onyx Annulet

As mentioned at the beginning of the guide, we will gain access to 3 Primordial Stones as part of the Onyx Annulet Questline.

I'm going to list some of the Primordial Stones that I think will be useful, however I will also put the link to the Method Primordial Stones Article when you can see all of the gems.

  • Flame Licked Stone - Dealing Damage has a chance to set enemy on fire, Dealing fire damage over 7 seconds
  • Harmonic Music Stone - Entering combat increases the tertiary stats of you and 4 nearby allies by 364 for 8 seconds
  • Humming Arcane Stone - Dealing Magic damage can fire Arcane missiles for each kind of magic you've used in the past 20 sec.
  • Pestilent Plague Stone Dealing damage can infect the target with a plague that spreads to other enemies.
  • Storm Infused Stone Critically striking an enemy can shock them and 2 nearby enemies, dealing Nature damage.
