Gems

This will be the best meta gem you can acquire as a Frost Mage.

For your red sockets, you have several choices depending on your playstyle. Reckless Monarch Topaz/Reckless Ametrine will be your standard choice, since you will want to gain as much Spell Power and Haste Rating as possible.

However, you can also choose gems that strictly empower your spells’ strength like Runed Scarlet Ruby/Runed Cardinal Ruby, or gems that grant you both spell power and resilience such as Durable Monarch Topaz/Durable Ametrine.

When it comes to yellow sockets, you have two types of gems that you will want to use in a balanced manner: Get resilience from Mystic Autumn’s Glow/Mystic King’s Amber, with the option of opting for Mystic Dragon’s Eye if you have access to Jewelcrafting. You’ll also want haste from Quick Autumn’s Glow/Quick King’s Amber.

If your build is focused on haste Rating, socket as many Quick Autumn’s Glow/Quick King’s Amber as possible.

The focus with these sockets is Spell Penetration. You can choose to use gems such as Stormy Sky Sapphire/Stormy Majestic Zircon that grant you raw spell penetration, or gems such as Shattered Forest Emerald/Shattered Eye of Zul that also grant Haste.

Alternative: Frag Belt (Requirement – Engineering 400)

This is the best enchantment for your legs.

Nitro Boosts are considered one of the strongest escape or chase tools in the game, requiring Engineering (400). They are the best choice when it comes to the Open World and Battlegrounds.

However, in arenas, you will want to choose Enchant Boots – Tuskarr’s Vitality, as the small movement speed increase will help you kite your enemies.

If you chose Enchanting as one of your professions, you can benefit from its unique trait, allowing you to enchant your rings.

Since we want to get as much haste as possible, Black Magic will be the best enchantment that you can possibly acquire.

Alternative: Enchant Staff – Greater Spellpower (Only for Staves)

Consumables

The best flask you can acquire for a Discipline Priest is the Flask of the Frost Wyrm. You can not use flasks in arenas, however, you can utilize them in Battlegrounds and Duels. However, you can use Flask of the North in arenas if you have Alchemy (400).

Fish Feast will be your standard food choice for battlegrounds, offering the best possible stats. However, if you do not find yourself in a battleground, or the group itself does not have any Fish Feast available, you can use Firecracker Salmon for increased spell power and stamina,

You have two options when it comes to PvP as a Frost Mage: You can either choose to use Potion of Speed for increased casting speed, or you can choose to use Potion of Wild Magic to enhance the critical strike chance and damage of your abilities.

Unfortunately, scrolls do not stack with class buffs, however, you can benefit from them in the absence of class buffs.
