Frost DK DPS Help 2H & Dual Wield Please

4 posts in this topic

Hello all. 


I'm really struggling to get above 13K DPS in raids, groups, or on the training dummy. I always hover around 13K. I've tried to use Icy-Veins guide for setting up my frost DK. I can't get the logs to work so I tried making a video of both 2 handed and DW to show what I'm doing. Any feedback would be really helpful. I've included a link to the video's and to my character so you can look at my gear. I really love the game however, I'm frustrated and demoralized. I'm always the dead last person for DPS in LFR and in any group. I saw a DK with ilvl of 640 doing 35K dps in a group I was in and it was very frustrating. Please, any help will be appreciated. I've tried to upload logs but I can't seem to get that worked out.  Thank you everyone.

Bro, you are wearing:

 A - mail shoulders

 B - an agility cloak

 C - an intellect trinket


WTF man. 

My DK is the same ilvl as yours and has 1000 more STR than you do. 1000.


Here's my starter advice:

Step 1 - Scrap 2h frost, focus on DW.

Step 2 - Fill every slot with PLATE gear that has STRENGTH on it.

Step 3 - After STRENGTH, stack MASTERY.

Thank you very much! That's what I wasn't understanding! Everyone kept telling me ilvl is all that matters. Since then I have replaced a lot of gear. I've made sure that each piece is plate and that each piece has strength first. I've scrapped the 2H and gone strictly DW. Now I'm slowly replacing all the gear that doesn't have mastery with gear that does. Since then I've increased my dps by about 15K. I'm doing right around 28K on training dummy in lvl 3 garrison. Thank you for your feedback!!

      So, recently, I've been thinking about rolling with Necrotic Plague in one way or another since I despise Plague Leech. I stumbled upon Demonardvark's "Necroblight" playstyle for Unholy. However, after testing Unholy out, it's definitely not my playstyle.
      Then I thought of a Dual-Wielding Frost Death Knight with Necrotic Plague (since they are known for spamming Howling Blast, which will apply one stack of the Plague), and Blizzard is buffing the Plague for 6.1.
      However, I'm a bit confused as to which stats I should go after:
      Mastery increases all Frost-type damages, which Frost has plenty of, including Necrotic Plague. Though, it seems like you need a ton of Mastery to gain any substantial benefits from it. How is it ranked compared to Multistrike?
      Haste would allow for more Killing Spree procs since Frost gains so much Haste. and "Might of the Frozen Wastes" causes Main-Hand attacks to trigger an Off-Hand attack as well. And let's not forget the Rune regeneration rate. More Runes = more Howling Blasts = more stacks of the Plague.
      From my point of view, if running Dual-Wield Frost, Haste would overtake Mastery in priority if Necrotic Plague is chosen, correct? Or should I swap out Multistrike for Mastery? (Haste > Multistrike > Mastery, or Haste > Mastery > Multistrike?)
      Also, which Runeforges should I go with? Razorice? Fallen Crusader? A mix of the two?
