Opening sequence question

3 posts in this topic

Hello

 

I've played around different ideas for opening sequences as frost that I've seen on this site and others.

 

The class guide says to use :

 

Prepull:  Evo (for Invocate buff), cast,Mirror Image - 3 sec, then potion, frozen orb 

On-pull:  spam frostbolt until BF/2xFoF procs, and then cast your Icy Vein & Alter time macro.

 

Seen another suggestion to:

 

Pre-pull:  Evo (for Invocate, potion

On-pull: Icy-veins, mirror image, frozen orb, after 6 secs, cast Alter Time

 

I've also tried a variation of the class guide sequence except casting the macro as soon as I have my main trinket procs, whether BF/FoF procs are up or not, so as to not delay IV/AT too much.

 

Is there an idea opening sequence I should be trying for?  My iLvl is 561, I usually set a breakpoint around 50% haste though I could probably go higher and I have all 3 normal mode trinkets.

There is no point in using IV before Mirror images. Why would you even do that?

 

My opening sequence is:

 

  • Prepull:
  • Evocate,
  • Mirror image,
  • Potion,
  • Pre-cast Frostbolt,
  • cast Frozen Orb (if safe),
  • pull

 

On pull:

  • Pop Icy veins+Engineering buff (with IV, I 3 bolts instead of one with one cast so I have higher chane to proc trinkets).,
  • cast Bomb,
  • Spam stuff until I get my trinkets up, or about 4-6 seconds has been gone and one trinket didn't proc.
  • Cast Alter time, 
  • Refresh Bomb immediately whenever most of my buffs are up
  • PewPew.
  • Refresh bomb, if it's about to expire but my trinkets would expire earlier than the ideal refresh moment.

 

FYI: I have the IV Alter Time macro. It takes freedom away and reduces your chance to get your trinkets procced asap.

Thanks for the reply.

 

I don't actually use the IV/AT macro any more so i'm used to the playstyle of waiting for procs before casting AT.
