View Full Version : Frost bolt or Curse against bosses?

01-30-2015, 10:33 PM
So im a lvl24 mage, focused on PVE. Im looking for second skill to use against bosses. So far im using time shift and fireball for crowd control and im happy with how it works. I am using lightning strike as my primary antiboss skill, and im wondering which other skill would be effective against bosses. I tried shield and heal skills but i dont feel they help me much, so i decided to respec. By looking at options i see only two that could be of any use, frost bolt or curse. Which should i pick?

frost bolt because curse only good when your enemy have high attack speed.

Frost bolt for the choices you've given, however lightning best

frost bolt if you want other minions summoned by boss to be affected...

usually, use lightning with the 15% DMG upgrade.

Curse only lasts for a few seconds. And most bosses attack slowly, for example first they will display the red zone and then attack once, pausing for seconds in between their attack. When you curse them, they will feel the impact of the curse only once or twice (thus not taking enough damage) and by the time they give you their second or third blow, curse will already have poofed away. While curse is good for a pvp clash, you should definitely choose Frost Bolt for pve. Frostbolt cool down is slow, the shot hits hard and is more effective on a Boss than curse.
