Frost mage - Help with DPS

3 posts in this topic

Hello - I'm sure you guys get really sick of this question, but nevertheless here goes.

 

My DPS seems really low for my iLvl (684).  My rotation is more or less what is recommended in the IV frost mage guide (I think).  Here are links to my Armory and a recent combat log:

 

Armory:  http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/area-52/Courv%C3%B6isier/advanced

 

Log (H Flamebender):https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/kBmbw6r2qznCNDxa#fight=84&type=damage-done&source=6

 

Hoping someone out there can help me figure out what I'm doing wrong, or perhaps more likely, failing to do right.

 

Thanks - Cour

~7 min fight, you should have 3 casts of troll racial (Berserking) + 3 casts of icy veins + 4 casts of mirror image

 

You have:

0 casts of Berserking

2 casts of Icy Veins (1st near pull and 2nd near 5min mark)

3 casts of mirror image

 

Macro Icy Veins and Berserking together

 

#Showtooltip Icy Veins
/cast Icy Veins
/cast Berserking
 
Edit: Also noticed that your 2nd int potion was not lined up with any other cooldowns. Mirror images should come off cd at same time as your third cast of Icy Veins so use the 2nd int potion then
 
Edit2: Try using Ice Nova instead of Unstable Magic and save up charges to dump during big CDs like Icy Veins + you can save charges to give you better burst during specific mechanics (i.e. dogs)\
 
Edit3: You should iceblock to solo-soak molten torrents whenever possible and cancel the iceblock as soon as the meteor hits you so you don't waste damage. Its a damage increase for you + lowers healing requirements on raid. Consider doing it especially if you get molten torrent while dogs are active.

Thanks a lot for taking a look Ralwn!

 

  • I thought Berserking was a passive racial - I've got it macroed with IV now.
  • Will work on making sure 2nd potion is coupled with another cool down.
  • I actually have Frost Bomb talented in this spec - unstable magic is for my fire spec.  I've tried using Frost Nova instead of Frost Bomb, and will experiment with this more.
  • I do generally solo-soak molten torrent whenever I can.

Thanks again for the advice.

      Are you looking to experience content with a solid group, but you don't have the time or desire for Mythic raiding?  We might be a great fit!
      Our team is recruiting for normal and heroic mode Nighthold and beyond.  Flex raids mean you always have a raid slot.  The guild provides all raid consumables.
      Raid times:
      Tuesday and Thursdays, 8:00PM - 11:00PM EST. Only six hours a week (often less once fights are on farm).  
      Sunday evenings we often hold optional Alt raids.
      Recruitment needs:
      We are especially interested in Warlocks, Boomkins, Hunters, Death Knights, Demon Hunters, and Rogues. Even if you are not one of those classes, don't hesitate to reach out if we sound like a good fit for you.
      Requirements:
      We ask that you join us in Discord during raids, at least to listen.  Perform reasonably for your gear level in Normal and Heroic raid content.  Our guideline is ilvl 865 but we can work with you. Our raid schedule is light, so we ask that you try to make raids whenever possible.  We of course realize things come up sometimes. Contact:
      Fill out an application on our website: http://condescending.enjin.com/  Navigate to the recruitment forums for instructions. My main is Westvleteren-Zul'jin (battle tag: Westvleteren#1524). My recruitment partner is Aârøñ-Zul'jin (battle tag: cactusdoodle#1677).

      So I love this brawlers guild and have thoroughly enjoyed the challenge up until meatball. Now I'm just bitter. I'm a frost mage but I also tried arcane and I can't touch this guy. Ive tried any and ever strategy and buff I'm able to afford and haven't even got him under 50% yet. I'm 865 so I feel like it should be possible I didn't think my gear would be a problem until rank six honestly. So any advice or help or tips or whatever I'm desperate.
