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:

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/malfurion/Nuadda/advanced

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.

      I will NOT be using BoS in 7.1.5...  why?
      http://www.wowhead.com/item=132459/perseverance-of-the-ebon-martyr
      Build:
      http://www.wowhead.com/talent-calc/death-knight/frost/cj7z
      Basically with the combination of Gathering Storm (extended RW) and fitting more Rime into that time period I'm hoping that my M+ hybrid spec will remain competitive and the sims thus far seem to support the theory.
      If you have the helm too, grats! and look forward to the major increase in it's power with Freezing Fog +30% and Tier 19 based around more Rime and more RP from Rime we should see many viable builds popping up on logs. **Stay with FP for now until you have T19 x 2 - see updated build link ^^
      Why not BoS and Hungering? ... well, I'm looking for big Rime crits and don't fancy the long CD to manage. I also want to remain powerful in M+ which should be the case with this build... I'm pretty sure I can become more useful with Winter is Coming + extended RW... stunning mobs for the whole of PoF uptime.
      Obliteration will be used to maximise rune spam for Gathering Storm.
      Lets hear your thoughts?

      Hello all,
      This is my first post in this area of the forum and I was wondering if someone can help me.
      I've recently started logging my encounters - starting with my guilds ToV HC run.
      While I'm always usually in the top 2-5 people on the DPS meter during raids, the log I took for the ToV HC run show me to be in the lower percentiles for that fight for my gear level (879 equipped, 880 bagged). I'd appreciate it if someone could enlighten me and let me know if there is something wrong in my rotation? Anything is appreciated, I'd like to maximise what I can if there's more I can eek out of my spec!
      Log: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/4p1dqz73WD86jnRL/#type=damage-done&source=5 (it's a live log so it'll be constantly updating while this run is going)
      Log: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/68rytKvmMxH7RTkc#fight=17 (for some other information - here is my Kara clear for the week (with NB))
      Armory link: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/darkspear/Eaglie/simple
      If any more information is required please let me know!
      Thanks guys!

      Patch 7.1.5 is a few days away, and I think it's probably safe to assume that no major changes will occur in the last few days before it's release. This being the case, I was wondering what to expect for 7.1.5, namely:
      Will we be forced to use a BoS build on patch day? Or is OBRA still the way to go?
      Are there any rotation/talent changes we need to make?
      What is the general stat priority? (I know simming is better)
      With the secondary stat squish, what are the new breakpoints?
      Do we still want fishbrul special food? Still prolonged power?
      Which legendaries are better than others? Any way we could get a legendary rankings list?
      Any other notable changes that we need to actively "change" something for?
