Frost Mage looking for a performance improvement

5 posts in this topic

Hi, I'm a frost mage and I'd like some help to improve my mage. I'm a bit of a newbie and just started raiding at the end of the year when I kinda started playing for real. I'm trying to use icy veins rotation, but some times I get too nervous and can't focus on anything but the mechanics so I just do random stuff while I struggle to survive.

Thank you in advance. I'm looking forward to getting to know exactly what I should do to start being less of a newbie.

Hello Luciana,

In your amory, I can see that you are missing a boots and a shoulder enchant. You should apply those. I don't know what "Escrivania: Sem encanto de ombro" means, but you should fix that as well.. :D

Talents, glyphs, reforging are fine. :)

About Jin'rokh:

  • You got Ionization 3 times, but if you follow my guide about heroic mode, you can basically just dance in the water the whole time. http://www.icy-veins.com/forums/topic/1608-throne-of-thunder-mage-style/
  • I cannot see in the log if you stood in the water as much as possible, but if you didn't that is a mistake.
  • However, what I can see is you moved way too much and only used Blazing speed/Blink twice. If you get a ball on you, you should Blink out with it in like the last moments when you can, let the ball explode, than Blazing speed back. Due to the lot of unnecessary movement, you had 46 Frostbolt casts compared to my 92 on the same boss. This is what I see your biggest issue at the moment.
  • Try to familiarize yourself with the rotation. Where your buttons are etc. You cannot afford on Fights like Jin'rokh to look at your keyboard for what to press. Plan ahead. What if I will get a ball on me in a few sec, where I will move? What if we get Ionization soon? What if Lightning storm comes, where should I stand in order to avoid as much balls as possible without moving?
On Horridon, things seem to be fine. However, you should only NT adds that will live long enough for your dot. (Wastewalkers, Frozen Warlords, Horridon etc.) And DPS mainly the big ones, then Horridon. Unless, you see that your raid is really struggling with the adds.

Council: Why didn't your raid use heroism? oO :D You should use Alter Time together with Icy Veins, trinket procs, Heroism, etc. I can see that, you always used it after Icy Veins. I cannot tell this from your logs, but when you get an intellect proc, you should reapply your NT on all targets. :)

Tortos: Again, movement. You have had very low number of FB casts and consequently low number of Ice lances and FFBs. Everything else seems fine.

So, overall your biggest problem, as I can see is that you move too much unnecessarily. You should try to work on that. The topic ("Mage style") I linked above is mainly focusing on Frost mages. (I was a Frost mage when I wrote the guide for most bosses) I would highly recommend you to read it and you will find very useful tips there. /bragging mode off :D

Ty Oltier, I'll work on everything you said. i completely forgot the enchant for those items since I got them the other day.

Jinrokh H: I was afraid I wouldn't be able to dodge the balls during the storm phase, then I chose to save Ice Block.

Council: Heroism was used 1s before the fight I guess.

Tortos: I can't stay still for long. There's always a shell coming for me. Is there a place where they don't go so often?

Ty for the help. I appreciate it.

You are more than welcome! :)

Jin'Rokh. You are doing right about the balls. :) Surviving is more important, than DPSing during that phase, since a dead DPS is no DPS however, you could simply not do any DPS during the lightning phase and purely focus on dodging the balls. Blazing Speed is your great friend! BUT, you should do as much DPS as possible while standing in the water. To do this, it is a bit more important imo, to use the Ice Block+Cold Snap combo there. :)

Tortos. Most of the times, I stand on either side of the room, but NEVER in the middle. Unless, I want to place Frozen Orb on the bats. So basically, hug the wall, when you see a turtle coming towards you, Blazing Speed a bit forward or backwards and you should be fine. :)

      <Bad RNG> is a Semi-Hardcore Horde raiding guild recruiting for our raiding team to progress quickly through Mythic's! The guild is currently located on Detheroc, but many realms are connected together. The list of connected realms are "Detheroc, Dethecus, Lethon, Haomarush, Blackwing Lair and Shadowmoon" but many guildies are located on the realm Lethon(Including leadership). Which are all US-PvP.
       
      Group 1 - 4/7 M EN (currently not recruiting, but fill-ins occasionally snagged from group 2)

      Mainly we're recruiting people who will be in our core raids but we also accept PvP player as well as casuals. We make sure everyone is comfortable in the guild to maximize their play-style. But we do ask for anyone who joins to have a tough skin on their back to take criticism and jokes. 

      All players recruited for raiding positions must earn their way to their position, that doesn't mean you won't raid. We rarely sit players.
       
      We will cross realm trial you if you wish, but you will not get loot until you join. Completely up to you. We also have people that will help you transfer if you're interested in not spending cash on it.

      Hi ! I tough I was doing Ok with my dps, but I find my self pretty low when i compare with other rogues. I'm considering switching to assassination because of this reason ... 

      I would like to know What I'm doing wrong because i tought my rotation was good. 

      This is my logs -> https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/hv6bfdgAjWDXF2BY#fight=2&type=damage-done&source=13
      Dywolfs 337k.
      When I look at some others rogues (without the OP legendary boots) I am 130k behind them for the same Ilvl
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/P2hFJnYyg6a4A7bv#fight=29&type=damage-done&source=15
      Oswin -> 468k

      When I compare our cast, we have pretty much the same rotation / cast.
      So except for the 4% nightblade missing, what I am doing wrong ? 

      Thanks 

      On askmrRobot, it say i shoud be at 378k on ursoc

      The correct stats should be  Agility > Versatility > Main Hand Damage > Critical Strike > Mastery > Haste > Off Hand Damage > Leech > Avoidance > Movement Speed

      Right ?
