After further consideration, we will be reverting the Icy Propulsion ICD change, and we will instead further reduce the damage of Frozen Orb and Blizzard.

Our goal with the initial change to the internal cooldown was to help curb some of the power that it has gained over the expansion from other bonuses and changes such as: the uncapping of Frozen Orb, the upcoming tier set bonus, and iLvl increase of the conduit itself. However, we recognize that the Icy Veins uptime it has provided as the expansion progressed is something that Frost Mages have grown accustomed to, and losing that power in Eternity’s End would end up feeling like a regression in both performance and enjoyment of how the spec plays.

These updates will be coming to the PTR shortly and our development notes will be updated to reflect the changes.
