Races

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.

Enchants

Rings - Devotion of Critical Strike

Wrist - Devotion of Avoidance

Weapon - Sophic Writ (Main stat Proc)

Chest - Reserve of Intellect (Main stat and mana pool increase)

Cloak - Writ of Avoidance

Gems

Main Stat with Critical Strike or Mastery.

Consumables

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

Refreshing Healing Potion - Healing potion on Demand

Phials (Replacing Flasks in Dragonflight)

Phial of Elemental Chaos - increase secondary stats by 1 minute, cycling buff every 1 minute(Can give Haste. Crit, Mastery, Or Versatility)

Alternatively Phial of Charged Isolation - Main Stat increase as long as you are at least 10 yards to any allies
