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 am new to mmos and I was playing an Arcane Mage but my fiance said frost mages are better so I am trying to learn how to play it and I have watched videos and gone over the icy viens information but it is still very confusing for me. I know this sounds bad but can anyone like dumb it down or like comment simpler instructions right now i am going off this attachment i made based of some advice and off of icy viens and i am only doing 4152 dps total so I am not sure if this is low or not but I am already level 120 right now

      So uhm, first post here and i take the opportunity to take you guys through my fabulous journey into "breaking" the tavern brawl this morning.
       
      So i get on that six-shooter tavern brawl with a mage decklist ( just cause i need them gold from quest ya know :D ) and on my second or third game,
       
      I play Research Project my opponent had then 10 cards in hand and draws for the turn, but no deck refill.... He then plays Barnes, no minion comes up from the battlecry. so it aint a visual bug. start my turn, play another Research Project, my opponent fatigues for 1+2, i can then OTK him with my 0 costs spells due to my 4 copies of Sorcerer's Apprentice.
      Fun fact, the tavern brawl clearly says; Make a six-card deck and duel! Don't worry - when you're out of cards you get a free reload!.
      Can anyone recall to this happening to them or no one had the cojones to mill?

      Hi
      I am currently looking for people to pop into my streams and see if I can improve my dps rotation and all around wow play. Any feedback is appreciated

      So I've got these two specific items. The ACI is one of the most used trinkets on shadow priest, but compared to the Infernal, it has a low ilvl. The effect of Infernal stacks every second, and since critical strike is now the bis stat for shadow priest,  which one of the trinkets would you pick? 🙂
       
      Thanks in advance! 🙂

      Hi all,
      Im not sure where to post this but im hoping someone can help or at least point me in the right direction.
      TL;DR - My DPS is awful and i want to increase it
      I played fire & frost spec back in cata upto 85 and have recently got back into WoW again and finally realised what people talk about when they play "end game" i wish id known about raiding sooner!
      However, My DPS isnt great at all im eq 959 ilvl but my DPS comes out as low as 8-900 sometimes or i can hold a steady 1.1-1.2M. Simc comes out around 1.7M (obviously in a perfect world) but i still feel im doing something wrong.
      Ive watched videos, read forums and im sure my rotation is right. Im using Flask, Food and Runes and Pre-potting. I have some logs here of garothi.
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/XRqCaL6jFVpW9MnG#fight=5&type=summary&source=23&view=events
      and this is my Raider.io - https://raider.io/characters/eu/twisting-nether/Buksh
      Not sure if ive posted this in the right place OR if ive given enough info to help. but anything would be hugely appreciated.
