Consumables for Frost Mage


Best Flasks and Potions for Frost

Potion of Phantom Fire Icon Potion of Phantom Fire is the best potion to use. Its damage is also increased by having Shadowcore Oil Icon Shadowcore Oil applied to your weapon.

Spectral Flask of Power Icon Spectral Flask of Power should be used as your flask of choice.

Healthstones heal for 25% of the user's maximum health. Cosmic Healing Potion Icon Cosmic Healing Potion does not share a cooldown with Healthstones, and should also be used when extra healing is required.


Best Temporary Enhancements for Frost

Shadowcore Oil Icon Shadowcore Oil should be applied to your weapon at all times.

If the small amount of extra health is required, such as running incredibly high M+ keys, or pushing Mythic raid progression early on in a tier, Heavy Desolate Armor Kit Icon Heavy Desolate Armor Kit should be applied to your chest armour.


Best Food for Frost

You should eat from the Feast of Gluttonous Hedonism Icon Feast of Gluttonous Hedonism or whichever of the +30 secondary stat foods corresponds to your top secondary stat.


Augment Runes for Frost

If you can afford it, you should use Veiled Augment Rune Icon Veiled Augment Runes (or the permanent Eternal Augment Rune Icon Eternal Augment Rune) to increase your primary stat. Since there is a finite amount of the consumable runes available, you should make sure to use them wisely and to stock up on them for when you need them.


Domination Shards for Frost Mage

Domination Shards have been disabled in relevant content as of 9.2. They exist only for the Maw, Korthia, and Torghast. The power gains from other pieces of gear will likely outshine most of them except for the highest reaches of Torghast, but it remains up to you if you wish to keep a piece of gear for such trivial content.
