Stat Outline

Critical Strike - Increase our critical strike chance of all our abilities.

Haste - Faster cast speed.

Mastery - Increase our Icicles, Frozen Orb, Blizzard, Glacial Spike and Comet Storm damage.

Versatility - just a small % damage increase, damage reduction, and self-healing.

The best way to calculate stat priorities for your character is to "sim" your character. Method Raider Jaerv has written a series of Metafy articles to help!

How to Sim in World of Warcraft


For Horde - I would recommend Troll, Orc, and Goblin as the best races for Frost Mage.

For Alliance - Human, Voidelf, Mechagnomes, and Dwarfs are all very close, so you can pick whatever you like.


Rings - Devotion of Critical Strike

Wrist - Devotion of Avoidance

Weapon - Sophic Devotion (Main stat Proc)

Chest - Enchant Chest - Waking Stats

Cloak - Writ of Avoidance

Legs  - Temporal Spellthread

Belt - Shadowed Belt Clasp


Main Stat with Critical Strike or Mastery.



Elemental Potion of Power - Main stat Potion for 30 Seconds.

Dreamwalker's Healing Potion - Healing potion on Demand

Phials (Replacing Flasks in Dragonflight):

Phial of Elemental Chaos or Iced Phial of Corrupting Rage

Alternatively Phial of Charged Isolation - Main Stat increase as long as you are within 10 yards of any allies.
