Season 2 set was the best by far. Playing around frostwyrm is so much better than to play around chill streak. S2 was fun, engaging and strong

I concur, season 2 set bonuses were great and felt far better than just chill streak buffs

Season 1 synergizes well with Obliteration
Season 2 was just all around fun built around an iconic talent
Season 3 forces us to use a boring talent for a chance at getting a CD reduction on ERW …

I voted Season 1, but as long as Season 3 does NOT win I’ll be happy. I wish we could just pick and choose what we want though instead of having the community vote on just one.

Anything’s better than Season 3 but I voted for S2 - Frostwyrm is just fun. S1 is…fine, I guess, but kind of boring compared to Frostwyrm.

Season 1 is great for pvp and pve. Season 2 is good for pve but terrible in pvp very terrible And I never really cared for frostwyrms fury. Season 3 shouldn’t even be a choice they need to just change Chill Streak to always bounce off yourself and be done with it.

season 2 was so fun i really hope they make it a talent in the future

I’m shocked season three has that many votes. It’s so awkward for those of us that didn’t use it before the bonus. Season one is my preference since I play Oblit, but season two is definitely a banger and something Al of us can use.

Sure season 2 was fun, but it was so incredibly weak in . The amount of time it took to charge up a full strength frostwyrm for it to hit a fairly big number was not worth the CHANCE that it would be ready just when you were ready to secure a kill, and Gods forbid you MISS. It felt redundant, and I didn’t even run frostwyrm on my BAR season 2. Only frostwyrm I even used was the mini one from my burst. Season 1 was boring, but at least Frost DKs could climb, and it let them do frost DK things better.

Season 1 is the only option for PvP. So for another season, FDK shall remain at the bottom of the ladder. S1 was the only time we attempted to claw our way up. It wasn’t a good set, but it was the best chance they gave us.

Season 2 was by far the worst tier for Frost dk in arenas so that’s cool. Frostwyrm’s Fury is giga nerfed in pvp. Y’all about to see Fdk drop below F- tier and regular forum posts again. Losing Chill streak bouncing between you and enemies and the extra bounce distance is huge. Season 1 lost viability with the blanket 50% nerfs in arena and the 4-set becomes a little redundant when fatal fixation was introduced.

ty man, really helped a lot

Seeing a lot of hate for the S3 set but I personally love it. Feels like a little slot machine and it’s not awkward at all IMO as it replaces Frostwyrm on breath builds. Enduring Chill is very fun. But can’t go wrong, we’ve had three great sets :slight_smile:

My main problem with S3 set is using it in any scenario where something might die before the others. It seems I lose the gamble every time because it bounces to the mob with a tiddlywink of health left and I lose my chill streak

This strategy by blizzard is lazy and stupid.

S1 and S2 were terrible for FDKs in pvp.

U dont play like that with that tier, u use pillar whenever you need it and the frostwyrm stacks are just a bonus damage, not meant to be the main dmg.

S1 was great for frost too but I agree, the S3 bonus is amazing for frost and makes chill streak way less clunky for the average player while also rewarding the good frost dks for using it properly.
