Even with the changes the left side prestige still seems quite under-powered compared to the right.
Hellfire feels hopelessly inadequate even with the 2,5 mil mod buff,
which either doesn't work or just doesn't scale as good as I hoped.
I didn't notice a significant change on either Ice Comet or Fusion.
I'd suggest something along the lines of simply increasing the next spell by X%, so that the mod amount doesn't have to be changed every time there is new itemization.
The only positive thing I have to say about Incineration is that it seemed easier to keep the stacks up than before.
Although the damage itself is still pretty lack luster.
Finally the conversion (CB->POT) being the other way around doesn't help either. Considering the CB/POT ratio isn't 1:2 the conversion should be further adjusted.

In light of how much AoE power one has to give up, in addition to a lot of flexibility, I feel that the left side prestige should be considerably stronger than the right side to even be considered viable.

For it to be balanced, left side should have the advantage against a single target, with right side being strong in AE situations. That's never been the situation, because Frozen Rain was always better than left side even at single target.

Solution: keep the buff to Frozen Detonation, but reduce Frozen Rain back to reasonably low levels so right-side spec doesn't beat left-side at single target.

No thank you I don't want to have to swap AA spec's a dozen times in raid base on if the fight is ST or AE. I like the change to Frozen Rain it bring is on par with Elemental Blast now.

Great. So there's still zero reason to ever go left-side spec. Why even have it in game?

why you focus on the wizard left side ? i think many another aa was obsolete since many year, but the dev team cannot rewamp all AA, it will be an epic work. i like the bump about frozen, and i hope some work about FB...

left side is boring anyway, having to use right side is great

Look, I raided on a wizard for a long time. I'm not advocating for a situation where wizards would feel compelled to jump AA specs 15 times a night because left side is, let's say, 50% more ST damage. That's annoying and no one likes that.

I'm just saying "there's no reason to even have a prestige tree if it's worse in literally every situation than the alternative".
