frost DK back after skipping MoP/WoD

2 posts in this topic

Former Blood and Frost DK, back in action.  Things have changed a LOT since I had to spec into DW Frost ;)

Here is the armory:

Here is my current rotation for World Quest/overworld play(outside of dungeons):

HB to Open->OB->OB->RW->FS until RP exhausted/OB is available(I forget to use PoF unless I am going after a rare or planning a aoe burst).

Should I use KM procs for FSc since I have that in my spec?

I'm having the following main issues:

1. I seem to be Rune starved, so that's why I am hitting FS so much.

2. Survivability can sometimes be an issue if I am not using RW on each cooldown.

3. Recently got this as my first legendary, unsure if I should actually use it:

So far the plan is to gather heroic upgrades and patch the class gear, but will welcome any suggestions

Welcome back!

If you like FSc, use it on packs of 3+ only.  Otherwise use OB.  Currently, imo the choice of talent for that tier is RA. Also, GA or Obliteration depending on what your doing. BoS is going to be buffed soon, but until then its underperforming.

Being rune starved isnt too bad because it takes advantage of FP.  It means you're doing it right. 

try to get your haste to 30% which is a breakpoint, since you're so close already.

i dont see anything wrong with your build that would make survivability any more of an issue than anyone else. Avoid poo and hit DS.  PvP is a problem for frost currently, if thats what the issue is.

use the ledge as a stat stick until you get a better pve upgrade.  Consider Abominations Might instead of Blinding Sleet. For pvp it seems to have some utility.

      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.

      Hey all I'm a returning player and finally hit 110 on my death knight yesterday. I am currently playing a frost dk, but I'm not enjoying it as much as I thought I would. Unholy on the other hand looks pretty sweet... but from what I hear they are in a bad state atm. This might be to early to speculate, but anyone know if buffs are coming this next patch? Should I reroll now before I invest thousands of AP into frost relic? As cool as unholy looks, don't want to play a doomed spec...

      Hello!
      I've been playing a bunch of mage recently to eventually find myself at 850 ilevel (down to 849 for stat purpose, I swapped an item for more haste and crit instead of mastery). However, since my last raid (yesterday), I feel like I might not be pulling enough damage for my ilevel so I'm looking for advices concerning the spec, rotation or stats. Further down, you're going to find my armory profile but I want to say it right here and now : I am aware that I'm overflowing with Mastery and I am currently working towards lowering that by a lot (if only gear would drop D:).
       
      While we're here, I also wanted to hear about your thoughts on specs. I just did a Maw Mythic +4 and some people didn't seem to be happy when they saw that I was frost and told me they should've known before because of some AoE issue and damage in general. Could it be that Frost isn't as good as Simulationcraft says it is ? I roughly hit the 200k DPS mark and I find myself pretty low compared to some people. Maybe Fire is better? Or even Arcane (even though I find it disgusting...). What do y'all think?
       
      Cheers!

      EDIT : In case it shows Felo'melorn, I'll put this image of my actual stats with Frost spec because I tend to try the other specs sometimes...
