Hey guys, I'm a Frost Dk dps and have been one since the proud uprising of DK's in Wotlk, I do feel like i am somewhat weak and underperforming, if anyone has any suggestions/help they can provide please do so. Thank you very much.

Please link a log instead of your character rankings. We can't get into your logs this way. Just link the mainpage of your guilds logs, and we'll figure out the rest :)

Overall you miss quite some Soul Reaper hits on different bosses, both them not proccing and just generally a low amount for the fight length.

 

Secondly, you generally waste quite some KM procs on Frost Strikes instead of Obliterates. Not sure if there is a golden number for it but you should generally wait with a KM proc untill you have runes for Obliterate (unless Obliterate has x seconds cooldown, someone else should verify).

 

Unholy is indeed generally better on alot of BRF bosses, but Frost is still a competitive spec that you can play if you prefer.

Only use KM proc on FS when CD of OB is 3 seconds or higher and you don't have blood charges or PL.

crit % should be 60% on OB vs 40% on FS.

 

Looking at your log you are sitting on quite a load of RP half way through the fight:

Get a swing timer and try and get a few FS in between swings so you don't cap on RP and you don't waste a KM proc on FS.

If you look though this I have a few bosses as frost however frost isn't as competitive as unholy and I agree with everyone's comments . Frost is a burst spec I only really play it if we are struggling to kill an add or boxes . Just make sure you are dropping rp all the time. In all our specs soul reaper accounts for 24% of all our dos so the second you can that needs to be your main prio

      I dont know what im doing wrong, ive have the right talents, and doing my rotation in order, and yet i am doing horrible dps. 
      I am currently using the rotation stated on icy-veins.
      ive been out dpssed by other warlocks from my guild, pugs and in lfr (i know, but still) and i dont know what i am doing wrong. 
      this is the profile of a guildie, who does a ton more dps than me. https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/stormrage/hulabaloo
      If someone has some advice, it's greatly appreciated.. 
       
      I hope i have provided the details required, otherwise please inform me what i need to add.
