Frost dps problems

2 posts in this topic

Hello guys, first I’d like to express my gratitude towards the site that has helped me a lot everytime I return to WoW. It was easy for me to get my rotation going know what stats I should go after etc. So , thank you, you rock!
Now my problem is my dps. I am a frost DK currently on ilvl 636/7 and my dps is dissapointing.I have some annoying downtime and when I am just unlucky and I don’t get enough crit procs my dmg is very low. I use DW , I follow as much as I can the rotation you present on your guides, but it is low. In the newest dps ratings i've seen frost dmg seems high and I do not undestand where I am lacking? I would prefer not to change to Unholy as I found damage by diseases on a meele character.. boring. It is getting really ugly for me as I get kicked out of CM pugs or get dissed for not being an unholy so I can do "20k dps all day". Any advice from you guys are more than welcome!
There’s a link to my Armory page: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/twilights-hammer/Lycourgos/advanced
Additional details will be posted if asked.
Cheers!

The first thing to address is unholy, unholy isn't about diseases at all anymore, festerblight has long been dead.

 

As for your dps, your  talent choice seems great, logs really help us figure out what you are doing. However, if you look at sims, the bulk of your damage is going to be from defile. Are you using on CD? The next source is soul reaper. These two make up the bulk of your damage, so you want to make sure they are used on cd when appropriate. After that the remainder of your damage is obliterate. The consensus there is to wait on km procs, however, I do not because you want all your runes constantly recharging, waiting is dps loss. 

 

Let me know if any of this helps. Again if you set up logs we can get a much better look :D

      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?

      So, i'm lvl 866 crit - castigator - soul reaper. Crit 27%, haste 18%, mastery 29%.  Draugr, Girdle of the Everlasting King and Sephuz's Secret. I simc at 305k dps single target. When i switch to CS - necrosis - dark arbiter, i simc at 298k dps. But my gear is crit-heavy low-mastery and i've no Deadliest coil traits yet, so i wonder if mastery build is really better now. But icy and noxxic still suggest crit-build. Does anyone have the possibility and gear to simc two of this builds with the same ilvl gear. Please share.

      Since we are no longer using Hailstorm, do we still incorporate frostbrand in the rotation?
