[Frost] Flurry Shatter

Recommended Posts

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 everyone. So I've read the guide on fire mage here on Icy-veins and got some questions related to single target rotation. First I'd like to ask about the meteor. It is mentioned that meteor should be used with Rune of Power which is fairly easy to do since Rune of Power is always ready when Metor is off cooldown. However It's also mentioned that Meteor should always be available when Combustion comes off cooldown. Now Combustion has a 2 min cooldown and meteor has 45 sec cooldown. I can use meteor twice while Combustion is on cooldown. However If I use Meteor twice , It is on cooldown when Combustion is ready. Should I wait for Combustion and not cast Meteor on the second time until Combustion is ready?
      Second what I'd like to ask is about Combustion after the opener. Its mentioned that I need a hot streak before I pop It. I fish for Pyros by casting Fireball until I get a crit and then use Fire Blast. However when I get an Hot streak I'm already mid-casting Fireball. Should I cancel the cast and cast Rune of Power or should I let that Fireball hit and immediately after start casting Rune of Power?
      It's also mentioned that I need to have a Fire Blast charge always ready before going in Combustion phase. Should I save up a charge and ignore the Heating Ups I get regardless and hope for Fireball to crit twice or basically wait for Fire Blast to get another charge?
      Thanks 🙂
