Has there been any theory-crafting done to find out if a frost-based spec using Incanter's Absorption could generate enough spellpower to be raid-viable?
It seems impossible prima facie, but a friend pointed out today that frost mages have significantly more mitigation because of ice barrier than other mage specs, and my mind took off from there... frostbolt scales well with spellpower, the high amount of haste required for frost raiding would work well with IA, the increased spellpower should lead to stronger barriers/wards etc. leading to more sp overall from a smart rotation.... The one major problem is that to go 33 points into arcane requires a loss of at least 5% flat damage increase from talents, along with some crit chance and at least one point of FoF.
I'm all for checking into anything that would let me raid as frost... but I can't find any information on this idea. (Possibly because it's insane. I still can't believe I'm asking about a spec with no water elemental.) Has anyone looked at this?
