I'm not sure why you would use Death Strike and Death Siphon as frost DK.

If you follow our guide's rotation, -which is quite simple and sometimes you will jsut stand still, waiting for the runes to regenerate- you shouldn't have any issues.

 

However, if you give our DK moderators some combatlog links, I am sure they will be more than happy to help you out.

Yeah, don't use Death Strike as frost unless you REALLY need the selfhealing and there's no heals to be expected from others.

Same with Death Siphon, its just not worth it. 

 

Seeing that you're 2H frost, only use DnD in aoe situations. In your single target rotation you can use the unholy runes for Obliterate, which is your main damage dealer.

 

Soul Reaper only when the target is below 35% when it expires.

 

Dark Simulacrum is generally quite useless in raiding environment. The only use I've found for it is Kadris's Froststorm bolt on the Dark Shamans encounter. Elsewhere the simulated spells deal very little damage so the RP is better spent on Frost Strike. Even on shamans it might be a DPS loss to use Dark Sim.

Pretty much what the posters above me said.

 

Dark Sim has very limited use in PvE and shouldn't really be part of any rotation. Same with Death Strike, can't see it being useful aside from solo-ing or questing where the heals can be useful. Follow the basic rotation explained in the guide.

 

Also, try to get at least some cheap gems / enchants on all that gear and get some reforging done to get your hit to 7.5%. All those little things add up significantly in a long fight.

What link are you trying to find? This is the link to the rotation section of the guide here: http://www.icy-veins.com/frost-death-knight-wow-pve-dps-rotation-cooldowns-abilities

 

Whether you want to gem/enchant your gear or wait for upgrades is a personal choice based on your realm / toon's economy. Just be aware that not gemming/reforging will leave your toon non-optimal and hence your dps will not be as much as it could be.

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 8/10N NH 4/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, Rogue, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review, make a character on our realm and inbox me, or hit me up on real ID (violentravi#1826).  Alternatively, if you are old school, please apply via our website:  http://www.adelante-guild.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      http://i.imgur.com/4y6HcUV.png[/img]     Valiant Vengeance was created about 7 years ago by the same leadership that is held today. We are a progression minded semi-hardcore guild who has raided since WoTLK. Each raid tier we have gotten progressively better at our pace and we plan to be a competing guild in Legion. VV raids 3 nights a week for a total of 9 hours a week.   Progression: 7/7M EN (Realm First) 2/3M ToV 8/10H NH   Raid Times: 6-9PM Pacific Raid Days Tues, Thurs, and Sun Loot System: EPGP Voice Comm: Discord   Current Recruitment Needs:   Tank Will make considerations 1 RDPS of any class . 1 Strong healer with a dps off spec as a bonus All applications regardless of role and spec will be considered if you can make our raid times and perform to our standards.   Our guild is comprised of members who have been with us for quite awhile, over several raid tiers and and expansions. We are pretty close knit and are wishing to add to the team. Just because we are progression minded and serious about raiding does not mean we do not have fun and just be friends. VV is a strictly no drama guild and any of those who wish to start it are immediately removed. If you are seeking a friendly, fun guild to raid with and be competitive with in Legion, VV is the place for you!   For any questions please add me on Btag or apply on our Guildsite.
