PvE- Frost Help Requested

2 posts in this topic

Hello all, love the website:)

I'm trying to see if I'm missing anything huge when it comes in terms of damage. On fights like Feng or Spirit-binder I'm expecting usually to finish in the top 5 of DPS compared to the rest of my guild. I'm usually in the top ten but I'm always trying to improve so if you can notice anything flawed with my rotation (Which I got from Icy Veins & Noxxic) or whatnot please let me know, I welcome the criticism.

Here's a report from World of Logs on our Last night MSV run (25m Normal).

http://www.worldoflo...3nt/details/27/

I looked at Simcraft and tried to compare what percentage of what spell did the most damage.

I've noticed that my Frost Bomb and FFB show doing more damage in my world of logs, then the Simcraft T14 PW style does.So Pulling Feng as an exampleCountdown happens by MT.

Pre InvocationPoM + Frost bomb the bossMove to CenterStart Frost-bolting the boss to stack 3 DebuffsCast Frozen OrbBy this time I have the Brain Freeze Proc, and Two Fingers of FrostCast Icy Veins + Trinket (Glyphed) and Mirror Images then Alter TimeStart unloading on boss making sure I'm using up all the FoF procs and after using Brain Freeze, reapplying Frost Bomb.

After Alter Time, Mirror Images and Icy Veins wear off, Use Invocation when it wears off, I keep steady with my Frost Bolts, Applying Frost Bomb when available for Brain Freeze, and using Pet Freeze and Frozen Orb to keep supplied with FoF.

Hopefully the information I provided was helpful enough for someone to evaluate.

Hello there, sorry for the slight delay.

I've found a log similar to yours, just that the guy does a lot more DPS and that he is not using inv_glyph_majormage.jpgGlyph of Icy Veins: http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/rhagkw30mpw1iyos/details/56/?s=2030&e=2491

By comparing both logs, I've found two interesting things.

First, I think you're casting spell_frost_frostblast.jpgIce Lance way too often. From your log, ability_mage_wintersgrasp.jpgFingers of Frost procced 44 times, yet you cast Ice Lance almost 90 times. In the other log, there are 53 procs of Fingers of Frost and 54 casts of Ice Lance.

Second, you are not casting spell_mage_frostbomb.jpgFrost Bomb often enough. In 7min36, you cast it 32 times, the other guys 41 (in 7min41). You're not only losing damage, but Frost Bomb is the only thing that procs ability_mage_brainfreeze.jpgBrain Freeze. As you can see in your log, you got a lot less procs than the other guy, so a lot less changes to use ability_mage_frostfirebolt.jpgFrostfire Bolt.

      Hey there!
      I've recently started playing a mage, and I feel like my performance is a little below where it should be right now... I feel like I have the basics of the fire rotation down, but I really want to make any improvements that I can.. I don't really know where i'm going wrong, or what i'm doing that is causing a gap in numbers between me and similarly geared players. I have a log from a normal Xavius fight from earlier, maybe someone could take a look at it and point out any mistakes or give a few pointers?
      Thanks for your time!

      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.
      (will update these links if they're not working (I got an SSL error))

      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
