Question about T4 Frost/Blood

4 posts in this topic

So I have inv_helmet_plate_raiddeathknight_n_01.jpMagdalena's Murderous Crown 2/2 which I think we all know is not great itemization for 2H Frost spec. But I just got my inv_helmet_24.jpgHelm of the Cursed Vanquisher, and it would make my 4P bonus. That's a dramatic drop in item level and stats for a 4P that I'm not entirely sure is worth it. Any thoughts or advice from more experienced raiders? Just trying to find the most DPS output I can so I can pug a Siege and not be a crutch.

 

I also have the same inv_helmet_plate_raiddeathknight_n_01.jpMagdalena's Murderous Crown 2/2 with the tanking legendary meta, etc. Its only my third tier piece available for Blood, but I figured I'd throw it all in one post. Is it worth swapping out the item level and stamina for the 4P to have all the death runes every few minutes?

 

My armory (just in case it's any help).

I'm not 100% to be honest i can't say numbers or anything but i believe you would get a slight boost from getting 4 set once helm is double upgraded granted it's slight nothing huge but if you were to go Dw i believe the upgrade would be very worth it but your 2h so idk tbh i'd go with it cause it is a pretty decent 4p but like i said i'm not 100% sure an ddon't have numbers to back it up.

 

Also if your dps is a bit low or w.e assume it to be your trinkets til u get better trinkets like evil eye and TTT or atleast evil eye over fire core

I don't have a lot of logs dps'ing because I've mostly been raiding fairly casually for the last month or so, but from logs that I can find Frozen Power (the 4pc bonus) accounts for about 4-5k dps. that's with roughly 40% uptime on Pillar of Frost. If your uptime is better or worse than that then you may get slightly higher or lower overall dps from the 4pc bonus.

 

with both double upgraded the difference stat wise would be

-595 Strength

-893 Stam

-304 Haste

-508 Mastery

 

Using Mendenbarr's stat weights for 2H frost. that would be:

6.46dps per str = 3843.7 dps

3.39 per haste = 1030.56 dps

3.65 per mastery = 1854.2 dps

 

Total = 6728.46 dps loss from stats.

 

So best case scenario the 4 piece could be better in some situtations, but I'm assuming you probably don't have a heroic eye of Galakras to get your pillar of frost uptime higher, so You're actually probably slightly better off staying with the warforged helm.

The lord storm has spoken. I actually thought about him not having even normal mode eye and his pillar being a much lower uptime never posted anythign about it but I thought of it. So yeah 4p probably a dps less I suppose

      Hello, so I started playing DK at the launch of legion, and have enjoyed it so far. I was initially unholy but then changed to frost recently, and am enjoying both specs except for one thing, namely my performance. So there are three frost DK's in my raid and lately the other two are always towards the top of the meter while I'm towards the bottom. There is no large gear difference (I think they both have a couple ilvls on me, but I have the legendary belt), so I was wondering what I was doing wrong. Upon looking at logs I found they both casted significantly more spells than me on all fronts (FS, obliterate, etc.). I also noticed that I need to keep icy talons up more, but can someone tell me why I'm casting so many fewer spells than them (there is no large haste difference, the armory has us all at 30something% haste, even though one of them (Hungerghost) and I only have 20something, and I'm sure the same applies to the other DK), or if there is some other problem, then what is it and how can I fix it? Thanks.

      So I got into a dungeon (Mana Tombs) with a level 71 Frost DK, and this guy was doing some absurd damage 1 shotting everything in his path.
      Was just wondering if anyone could possibly tell me how this guy was doing so much damage at this level

      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
