[Frost] Flurry Shatter

A few questions on maximizing the gain from Flurry's Winter's Chill:

It is recommended that you when you cast Frostbolt/Ebonbolt, immediately use Flurry and then cast Ice Lance.

The travel time for Frostbolt/Ebonbolt is slower than Flurry, meaning your Flurry will hit the target before Frostbolt/Ebonbolt, letting  Frostbolt/Ebonbolt benefit from Flurry's Winter's Chill.

My first question is:
1. Is there a minimum distance for this to work? ~15 yards?

There is also a instance where you can get 2 Ice Lances off from a Flurry when you have extreme haste stat.
You do the normal Flurry follow-up with Ice Lance, but you move towards the target after casting your Flurry and cast another Ice Lance, letting the 2nd Ice Lance to hit before the Winter's Chill expires. Moving towards your target will reduce the amount of travel time for your Ice Lance's to hit the target.

My second and third questions are:
2. Is there a minimum distance to the target and minimum distance you need to move towards your target for this to work?
3. What Haste % should you have for this to work?

1.  Yes, there's a minimum distance, and it is around 15 yards, and it seems to be based on flight time not character to boss, so taller bosses like Krosus or Chrono which cause your abilities to fly up to them have a little more room for you to stand closer and still benefit. However this is just what I've noticed during kills(having 100% crit chance on Ebonbolts despite stacking in for the first power overwhelming/avoiding Orbs during later bridge sections), I may just be getting lucky crits.

 

2. I generally will use a Shimmer to close the gap between the Flurry and the 2 Ice Lances, works well at just about any distance from the target where I can utilize the whole Shimmer distance.

 

3. I only have been able to get it to work reliably with lust/IV and my Whispers procced with 17% haste unbuffed.

      Hi!
      I would like to ask somethng about ice lance and other procs aswell.
      To maximize dps, should you always try to get rid of Fingers of Frost procs with ice lances? And if you get flurry proc, do you want to get rid of ice lance procs before casting flurry + lance combo?
      I am not sure how much icicles and maximizing their damage output before dumping them affects your damage.
      Thank you

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, PUBG, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletags:
