Frost Mage

Patch 8.3

Written by Philwestside Last Updated: 11th Jan, 2020

Some content in this guide is based on PTR/early data

Updates will be made after raid progress is finished and more accurate information is available.

Interface

Take care of your UI, if you set it up properly it will make your time in the game a lot easier.

Remember, what works for someone else might not work for you, but I really recommend the following addons:

  • Weakauras - The most powerful addon in the game (in the right hands it can do pretty much anything you would ever want)
  • Bigwigs or Deadly Boss Mod - Timers for dungeons and raids
  • Details - It has more uses than just damage, explore it and you will find a lot of useful information.

This is how my UI looks:
