I'm glad to see some buffs to Frost DKs, but - and I know this is a shocker - I don't feel it's going to be enough to put Frost DKs back up on the big boy map like we used to. I've heard Blizz acknowledged they overnerfed Frost DKs in Legion, but I guess we'll see how we do after this patch.
Thanks WoWhead---you guys always have the scoop. *sigh* There goes my paltry mage self-heal. When I ice-blocked today and my health stayed at 4%, I knew that the dream had ended. WOE IS ME.
Why would we want to have firing 3 aimed shots in a row as a goal for higher dps? It's much better with the more flexible option that is less repetitive(and not so boring). The nerf of sidewinders encourages a change to arcane shot spam so that's not good but it was a too obvious choice before. Now you might actually consider taking up piercing shot instead.
