Hi there , first message ever. Great job.
I have a question I've been looking in this thread with no answer. With the incredible speed 2H Frost can generate RE, wouldn't it be better to grab the Gliph of Icy Touch to bust our frost disease? The enery save of Gliph of Frost Strike doesn't seem to fit so well in my rotation, I never do 3 or more FS in a row and I always have enoguh energy to use FS when every thing else is on cd.
I took a look at this relative to an Argoloth 25 (ie Target Dummy) kill that I had in excel already for judging the relative impact of 4.1 on my 2h frost dps. Anyway, here are the general breakdowns I got for these two abilities. (Assuming 20% fewer frost strikes)
Active Time: 182 seconds
Glyphs: Obliterate/Howling Blast/Frost Strike
--Total Damage: 977,209
--% of Damage: 31.6%
--Total Damage: 159,366
--% of Damage: 5.1%
Glyphs: Obliterate/Howling Blast/Icy Touch
--Total Damage: 775,113
--% of Damage: 26.7%
--Total Damage: 191,239
--% of Damage: 6.5%
So overall, that would be a loss of ~162,000 damage (and roughly 200k based on my 4.1 estimates). This does not even include the loss of and average of 5 runic empowerment procs. The numbers for frost fever would certainly be slightly higher relative to this would it be a real fight where you have to move more than sidestepping every so often and moreso on AoE based fights, but it still doesn't quite outweigh 25% more frost strikes for general useage.
