Frost Mage Conduit and Soulbind Changes for Patch 9.1

While all Soulbinds are getting new abilities and extra Conduit slots, due to the overwhelming power of Mirrors of Torment Icon Mirrors of Torment, the suggestions have not changed.

All Soulbind trees will get one Potency slot that branches into a choice of Endurance or Finesse. Which one to choose will functionally be up to personal taste, with Ice Bite Icon Ice Bite likely being the Potency Conduit of choice.
