Frostfire Bolt is a mage ability, learned at level 1. It deals direct Frostfire damage and slows the target by 40% for 8 seconds.


Frostfire Bolt is available to the Frost specialization and is preferably used when [Brain Freeze] is active.

Frostfire Bolt is replaced by [Arcane Blast] for Arcane mages and by [Fireball] (at level 12) for Fire mages.






In the TCG.

Before Cataclysm, Frostfire Bolt enabled mages to play an Elementalist spec. With the talent changes in patch 4.0.1, it is no longer possible.
