[Question] May you have a look at my Frost Mage

6 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

 

I have some questions. Sice 5.2 I´ve been playing frost. I feel confident while playing my mage, damage and DPS seems to be good, but I´ve got the feeling that there is more to " squeeze " out smile.png

DPS Raid: About 220K up to 240K

DPS dummy in Stormwind: 160K up to 170K unbuffed

 

First of all, I red that you shouldn´t have more than 50% haste ( raidbuffed ). Is that true? Currently I´m having about 49,5% haste raidbuffed. Or ist that way to much ? biggrin.png

Stats priority looks like this for me:

Haste ( up to 50% raidbuffed ) > Int > Mastery > Crit .... should I change anything?

 

Equip, enchantments, gems: http://eu.battle.net/wow/de/character/gilneas/Tobapar/simple

 

 

Yeah, i know, combat logs are great, but let´s do it step by step. Combat logs will come on wednesday, have to figure out how it works ^^

First have a look on equip, gems etc...

 

Tanks to all of you who are helping me smile.png

I just have to say, I find your talent choices to be...strange, for frost mage raiding. Frost Bomb is only advised if you are spending the majority of a fight fighting 6+ enemies stacked together. Knowing which bomb to use on which fight will get you a bit more dps, if you play it correctly. Presence of Mind isn't really worth it for Frost, you are better off with Ice Floes or Blazing Speed, as they make movement easier. Cold Snap has it's uses, but generally speaking, Greater Invisibility is the recommended talent, though that is purely survivability, which has little impact on your dps. Technically, Temporal Shield is better than Ice Barrier from a DPS standpoint, because it is off the global cooldown. Unfortunately, changing all those will only make a small difference, if any. If you really want to eke out more numbers, it's all going to come down to your playstyle.

Well, armory seems not to be updated ^^ Switched from Living Bomb to Frost Bomb for one encounter yesterday. Usually I´m using Living Bomb.

Went from Presence Mind to Ice Floes. Think thats a good idea.

Thanks for the help smile.png

Ich spreche Deutsch nur wenig. Sie nicht brauchen zu 50% Tempo überschreiten. Aber Sie können.
 
Können Sie WoL Parses zeigen? Ich werde analysieren und versuchen, Ihnen zu helfen.

That's actually a rule? Heh, okay. My attempt to be helpful went too far.

 

Just asking him to post logs. Can't help him because his armory looks fine. Not perfect, but near perfect, so a lack of DPS must be coming from something he's doing (or not doing).

 

@OP: If you prefer to discuss in German, send me a PM.

      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.

      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
