    Default Hailstorm vs Arctic Blast

    Recently got my mage to 50, running SCele for DPS.

    Looked at Bluedot's guide, and there was one inconsistency I was hoping someone would know the answer to. In his AOE rotation he uses BS -> hailstorm instead of BS -> AB, does hailstorm do more damage over its duration than AB? If so, why does his single target rotation use AB first, is it a cooldown rolling issue?

    As in, AB HS AB filler is better than HS AB filler AB?

    if you do a BS/HS before doing BS/AB then you have to wait for hailstorm to end to build BS stacks as every tick of HS will wipe them. If you do BS/AB you can maximize both spells in your IE cd rotation.
