Best in Bags for Frost No Ice Lance

When will I be able to select a custom strategy for BiB so I can accurately generate best gear sets for the no ice lance build?

If blizzard doesn’t take any action to close the gap on the no ice Lance build, we will do something to accommodate it. Up until this patch, it wasn’t enough of a DPS gain to really worry about.

It falls into what they would consider a “degenerate” play style because it cuts out a main part of the rotation, but I’m not sure if they will be able to fix it.

In the mean time, if I could just select a custom strategy, I think that would solve my issue. Right now, AMR/BiB is useless for me as it’s not accurate for Fire BM or Frost NOIL :frowning:

Have you tried using the customize feature to steer the optimizer to the traits and stats you want?

@Swol Have you reconsidered implementing a strategy for NOIL?

We just implemented the new tools to customize the optimizer. I think those might be a good way to set up a no ice lance build.

Doing it automatically would basically mean assuming all players know not to use ice lance, under the right conditions, which may or may not be the case. Give those new tools a try and see if it works for your character and let me know.

at this point, no ice lance is pretty much the go to build for frost mage, gcd makes using icelance after flurry pointless, mastery becomes our best trait, right now AMR is useless for me because this strategy isnt here. hopefully you guys add a strategy for it with gear cheack also cause that would help me a bunch ty
