I'm confused and heard different things on the boards. Does any crit break frost nova? Or does any crit from ice lance break frost nova? If they nerfed frost nova shatter is pointless now.

The change affects Frost Nova. Frozen targets were never intended to be frozen after a critical. However, the usage of Ice Lance made it very noticable that being frozen was persisting through being crit, whereas normal damage had a chance to break the state. By insuring that a crit will break the frozen state, back to back crits from Ice Lance won't be occurring and such spikes in damage disappear.

Q u o t e:


That's because it's perfectly fine, and nova snapped on critical the majority of the time anyway.

Shatter isn't useless as it's a near guarenteed crit and works amazingly well as a combo ability with most spells.

Icelance is perfectly fine because it's practically mana free and if you show me a person always have time to stop and charge a frost bolt, I'll show you a liar.

This nerf is barely mild at best. If you want to see real nerfs, look at Druids and Priests.

Thank you, Tseric.

Thank you for being reasonable about it. Simply insuring that a break on crit occurred when previously there was only a good chance doesn't really seem like a reasonable excuse to respec or reroll.

Q u o t e:
But that's besides the point. Tseric's comment regarding two shotting people with Ice Lances is highly incendiary and is a borderline flame post. Such a comment is unbecoming of a Blizzard representative.

Well, I removed it because it bothered you so much. To actually label it as trolling is, however, a gross exaggeration.
