So I’m seeing that most of the top parses in Heroic Nighthold are using Ascendance. I typically use the Icefury build myself, and I do very well with it, so I’m wondering why is it that everyone is using Ascendance? Icefury sims higher than Ascendance and it is way more mobile / versatile. What is the reason for this? Should I be using Ascendance instead? My parses are fine for the most part, that’s not the problem, I’m just curious about other’s perspectives on which build you like and why.
Ascendance is simply easier to use. Managing your empowered frost shocks and making sure not to overcap on malestrom with Icefury casts can be difficult during some of the more hectic encounters in Nighthold. Ascendance allows for an easier rotation and less room for error so outside of an ideal scenario (Like that of a sim.) it’s likely that Ascendance will actually perform better.
