Frost DK - Switching between 2h and DW mid-fight

3 posts in this topic

So for the last few months I've been switching to DW whenever I need to AoE and back to 2h when I'm doing single target.

 

Do any of you guys do this? It seems to be a decent DPS gain from what I've seen.
I rock a 670 2h and for DW I use a 680 and a 665.

 

Here's a link to the logs my guild took last run: http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/nwjnck7y4yjdqa8f/

 

I have no idea if you can see any useful info in World of Logs, I know it says to use warcraftlogs in the "How to ask for help."-topic but I honestly have no idea what the differences are and how to use either of the two, neither logging nor reading.

 

First post here, sorry if tags/formatting is wonky.

2H Frost and DW Frost have a completely different stat weight, so you're going from mastery as the worst stat to the best in a second. Either you're gearing for both specs and you'll be fine or it simply is a DPS loss, even if it seems you're doing more damage (it's AoE after all), if that makes sense. 

 

I'd actually rather, and that's my opinion, main Unholy for ST and then switch to DW Frost for AoE, if you're more comfortable with it (UH does more AoE, though). Since they share exactly the same stat priority, you'd be fine.

Alas, you can only switch weapons, not respec mid fight (only Arthas can, using Necrotic Plague and Defile in one fight, haxxor). I would stick just to one spec in one fight, instead of switching 2H - DW. Not to mention the pain to actually get 3 good weapons instead of just 2 (or 1).

      Hello, so I started playing DK at the launch of legion, and have enjoyed it so far. I was initially unholy but then changed to frost recently, and am enjoying both specs except for one thing, namely my performance. So there are three frost DK's in my raid and lately the other two are always towards the top of the meter while I'm towards the bottom. There is no large gear difference (I think they both have a couple ilvls on me, but I have the legendary belt), so I was wondering what I was doing wrong. Upon looking at logs I found they both casted significantly more spells than me on all fronts (FS, obliterate, etc.). I also noticed that I need to keep icy talons up more, but can someone tell me why I'm casting so many fewer spells than them (there is no large haste difference, the armory has us all at 30something% haste, even though one of them (Hungerghost) and I only have 20something, and I'm sure the same applies to the other DK), or if there is some other problem, then what is it and how can I fix it? Thanks.

      So I got into a dungeon (Mana Tombs) with a level 71 Frost DK, and this guy was doing some absurd damage 1 shotting everything in his path.
      Was just wondering if anyone could possibly tell me how this guy was doing so much damage at this level

      Hi everyone. I've a question, What spect should we roll for 7.1.5?
      So patch notes for 7.1.5 (November the 29th) are out.
      And I have 2 things to remark
      1.Strong buff to Arcane Mana cost for Arcane Blast has been reduced from 125% to 60% per Arcane Charge, since they are mana dependent. This does not apply It Was a tooltip bug.
      2.Almost all fire skills were buffed in damage, Fireball,Flame Blast, PyroBlast, Scorch, FlameStrike, CinderStorm,Meteor,Conflag and Phoenix's Flames. BUT Critical Mass % was reduced from 15% to 10% and Pyretic Incantation was nerfed from 5% per stack  to 2% per stack = 15%  less damage from consecutive Critical Strikes.
      I haven't done the math yet, but since Arcane has gotten a lot of buffs lately, and Fire is getting "balanced" (Since i've no idea how the patch will afect fire dps), and Frost Topping dps in rankings, and with no significant buffs or nerfs in the patch notes i suppose they will stay in tops.
      So if anyone would be so kind to enlighten me what spect you guys think it would be the best for 7.1.5 and why.
