Thoughts of Arcane (rotation)

After last update on September, 15th an arcane mage guide contain a thing that confuse me:

1. Earlier during burn phase and RoP+AP activated a guide suggest to use Arcane Missiles if 3 stacks acquired. Now it suggests to use AM whenever available. I see two different ideas behind these rotations:
a) using only when 3 stacks acquired because AP's buff for -30% mana cost gives the cue to use as many ABs as possible; you can spend your 1st and 2nd AM charges later (after RoP+AP fades);
b) AM is obvious DPS booster and using it whenever available means boost for your DPS but simultaneously means that your burn phase will be a bit shorter (cause you will waste several GCDs on free-cost missiles).

I'm casual player (jk 5 days played on lvl 110) and didn't start simulator or smth like this. May anyone confirm that DPS boost via 1st and 2nd AM charges under RoP+AP >>> 1-2 extra ABs during longer burn phase?

Hopefully someone else can pick this one up, I don't know much about playing an Arcane Mage in Legion beyond simming!

      I am new to mmos and I was playing an Arcane Mage but my fiance said frost mages are better so I am trying to learn how to play it and I have watched videos and gone over the icy viens information but it is still very confusing for me. I know this sounds bad but can anyone like dumb it down or like comment simpler instructions right now i am going off this attachment i made based of some advice and off of icy viens and i am only doing 4152 dps total so I am not sure if this is low or not but I am already level 120 right now
