Frost mage looking for help with dps

3 posts in this topic

Hello,

 

I had returned to wow recently, had lot of work catching up with everything. When I reached certain ilvl I started looking for better semi-casual guild. I did alt run with that said guild and make logs. Afterwards I received post from their ranged officier, that I am doing only average dps at best...

I would kindly ask for your help, to analyze, if its just me ( clearly my reflexes dulled over time ) or if its there something else hindering me..

 

1) Character http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/drakthul/Sadrax/simple

2) Log https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/MwQxkN91tF683gDC#boss=-2

3) Trying to maintain Icyveins rotation as close as possible

 

It is realy bothering me, so any help will be most apreciated.

Looking at your gear alone, the lack of decent trinkets is going hurt you really hard. The 715 crafted one isnt so bad i guess if thats all you can aquire atm. I would use your bonus tokens on Mannoroth and archi for better ones if you're clearing them weekly. The 4p for frost isnt that big of a game changer, if you plan to go arcane then try to spend coins on that first. 

 

By the looks of your logs, i would say switch your ice nova talent to unstable magic since you have T18 it becomes the best talent in just about every situation in HFC. Try to prepot to get 2 pots in so you have it for your 2nd icy-viens or if you lust at the end of a fight.

Also noticed you hardly switch your talents for multi target fights, if  you're going for single target burst i would suggest PC instead of comet storm since you can cleave off it properly now that splitting ice works. A minor thing, you can RoP instead of IF for a lot of fights like : Iron Reaver, council, Gorfiend, fel-lord, iskar(depending on how you do the fire),socrethar, and Killrogg. These fights require very very little movement if played right and will increase your dps.

Imo the 4 set for frost is a big deal. It gives your more Finger of frost procs, and lets you store more procs for periods of priority target nuke or trinket procs. Further more the 4 piece is really good when you have the class trinket, since it's easier to get a frostbolt before each icelance without overcapping your charges of Finger of frost.

      How in mind that this is a discussion post. I really want to see your oppinions.
       
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      I guess I start with sharing my experience with playing a Death Knight. (don't worry, it won't be long).
       
      My first Death Knight was during the end of wotlk. I used it mainly for PVP since my main character was a Restoration Shaman (PvE). I did however play some encounters in ICC and Cata as an Unholy. (Since it was the only talent spec I knew how to play).
      During the end of MoP (SoO) I started to use it as my main character, still playing Unholy.
       
      Also during MoP I joined a "progress guild". We managed to down all the bosses in Heroic before the change to Mythic. Back then, we had 3-4 Death Knights. 1 tank and 3 dps. I was the only one with the Unholy spec. With the right rotations, I managed to win against them all the time.
       
       
      Let's start the Topic..
      Since we're a progress guild, the leaders change players all the time. Simply because it's a new expansion and players are quite lazy when it comes to "gearing up". I find it rather easy to grind gear so I managed to keep my spot. We're not a hardcore guld, but we've done 8/8 Normal and 4/8 Heroic and I do decent DPS all the time. Only issue I see is the Single Target bosses but still manage to maintain a good DPS.
       
      I can't say that I follow Noxxic DPS rankings, but a player in my guild mentioned that Frost DPS do a higher DPS than Unholy. I personally have a ilvl 652 and never seen a Frost DPS in any pug (or guild run) I've done.
      Do you have any sort of experience how big the difference is?
       
      Back in MoP players said that Frost 1h was OP as a Death Knight but I still managed to reck them with a good rotation. Is it still the same or do they have any advantage?
       
      I rather not re-roll to a Frost Death Knight since I enjoy Unholy a lot!
      But would it be worth it in this expansion?
      Surely you should use the spec you enjoy playing but I dont want to be a "pain in the arse" for my guild. I know some friends saying that Frost is quite fun to play.
       
       
      I guess the questions will be:
       
      Which talent spec do you prefer ?
      Which talent spec do you consider the best in WoD ?
      Which talent spec will you use and why ?
       
       
      And these questions are for DPS players. I'm terribly sorry if a similar thread already exist. [ In WoD ]
       
      I personally enjoy Unholy a lot. I find it hard to burst with an Unholy Death Knight but maintaining my DPS is no issue at all.
      I guess I made this thread because I've seen the Noxxic rankings my friend mentioned and wanted to know if it was legit or not.
      I can also mention that I'm always top 3 in the DPS list in my guild and in pugs I'm always first! ( I change my talents for each fight).
      The only boss I struggle with is Ko'ragh.
       
      Hope you read it and understand my point. Anyway, let's start the discussion!
      I really hope this community are understandable and can see my point..
