Stats for frost

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

I just wanted to ask about exact stat priority. Should I just get as much versa as I can?

Second thing is, what is the weight of every stat for Pawn Addon?

Armory (might be helpful) http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/defias-brotherhood/Prekist/advanced

I wouldn't even ask, but i played with ~25% CS/H, Icecap/Avalanche , Runic Attenuation and Obliteration for a day now and its pretty damn good.

Yeah seriously, i mean, in the guide they have up it says versatility over all, i find that hard to believe.

I mean, is it really our primary stat over haste and crit? Do we just straight drop crit and haste and go versatility? No soft caps for crit or haste BEFORE going versatility? what should our haste and crit look like before we start valuing versatility as our main stat?

So, frost stats are a horrible mess right now. In short for the most accurate weights you have to self sim yourself. Why? Mastery doesn't help obliterate. Crit was more beneficial to frostscythe builds and required there. Using runic attenuation you end up borderline GCD capped which starts to devalue haste. The only stat that seems to benefit everything is versatility. So, once you get any new piece of gear with varied stats, it muks up the calculations. 

So, the most technical answer is there is no answer that will work for all. Now there was a guideline that was proposed by a mad hamster that was 25/25 haste crit. Running self sims and farting around, it works well, however, the 25 haste is a bit much. I don't see huge differences between 20 and 25% and thats due to diminishing return walls. So, the bar I have set for myself is 20% haste, 25% crit, then stack versatility from there. Crit is there to fish out hard critting rime howling blasts, and the hope that SF will Crit. Now, these are my own characters numbers, they may not work 100% for you, but this is the guideline i'm using. It is the middle ground between what self sims are saying and what play testing is saying. 

So the technical answer is you must self sim, the personal answer to at least give you a starting point, you have. The choice of which to follow is yours.

There's one problem with stacking too much haste, too: you, human, has to react fast enough for it to be valuable. In a Mythic or Raid situation where you have to take care of many other factors, this may not always be possible.

      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,
      Which trinket should I be using (obviously arms warriors are not concerned with iLvl because Mastery is desired over strength.
      I have the 820 iLvl trinket from a timewarped dungeon and that with heroism, Battle Cry, Potion, trinket use, could provide an extreme amount of dps burst which is also on a 1.5m CD. It seems like an obvious choice but I wanted to hear any thoughts or opinions that people have since I'll be losing 500+ static mastery. Also, the use effect gives around 20-24% increased damage during colossus smash. 
      Thoughts?...

      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.
