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

      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.

      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.

      I'm not entirely sure what I am doing wrong that is getting me this result, but I am getting about a 30k dps difference on training dummy when I use a defile, clawing shadows, shadow infusion build than when I use the recommended talents. I left the rest of my talents unchanged and I have yet to see where the dps difference is coming from (arbiter or clawing shadows), but I'm very confused as to how this could happen.

      Defile damage breakdown, Arbiter damage breakdown
      I felt like I had a harder time keeping my disease up and using coldheart on cooldown (or rather whenever at max stacks) with the arbiter build. Am I missing some key thing or do I just need to git gud? Thanks in advance for any help.

      I'm sure this is a popular topic so I apologize if this is the 1 millionth time you've seen this.
      I haven't played a level capped character since probably Wrath of the Lich King.  Friends are sucking me back in and I'm thinking about picking up Warrior.  I used to love tanking as a warrior but unfortunately (or fortunately) it looks like all the tank slots are filled.  Basically my question is, is rolling Warrior a wise choice?  Are they fun to play?  Pretty sure id pick Fury as my DPS spec but I don't know how it or arms plays now. I want to be competitive on the meters against my guildmates but I don't think we're going to be super hardcore.
      I suppose this is "living the dream" but i want to be near the top of the DPS charts while having fun doing it. Is the warrior for me? Other classes I was looking at were Shadow Priest, Hunter, or Death Knight.
      I guess I should also mention that I haven't played in a LONG time so ill probably be doing things like world pvp, BGs, 5-mans, ect.  I'm not an Arena type of person.
