Frost DK - Switching between 2h and DW mid-fight

Sign in to follow this  

3 posts in this topic

So for the last few months I've been switching to DW whenever I need to AoE and back to 2h when I'm doing single target.

 

Do any of you guys do this? It seems to be a decent DPS gain from what I've seen.
I rock a 670 2h and for DW I use a 680 and a 665.

 

Here's a link to the logs my guild took last run: http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/nwjnck7y4yjdqa8f/

 

I have no idea if you can see any useful info in World of Logs, I know it says to use warcraftlogs in the "How to ask for help."-topic but I honestly have no idea what the differences are and how to use either of the two, neither logging nor reading.

 

First post here, sorry if tags/formatting is wonky.

If you want any serious analysis/feedback, then we need you to upload logs on warcraftlogs.com and not this.smile.png

2H Frost and DW Frost have a completely different stat weight, so you're going from mastery as the worst stat to the best in a second. Either you're gearing for both specs and you'll be fine or it simply is a DPS loss, even if it seems you're doing more damage (it's AoE after all), if that makes sense. 

 

I'd actually rather, and that's my opinion, main Unholy for ST and then switch to DW Frost for AoE, if you're more comfortable with it (UH does more AoE, though). Since they share exactly the same stat priority, you'd be fine.

Alas, you can only switch weapons, not respec mid fight (only Arthas can, using Necrotic Plague and Defile in one fight, haxxor). I would stick just to one spec in one fight, instead of switching 2H - DW. Not to mention the pain to actually get 3 good weapons instead of just 2 (or 1).

      Evening fellow spell chuckers!
      - Logs (Entire HC Farm Raid)
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/RPZK8MngjtWTAzry#boss=-2&difficulty=0&type=damage-done&source=2
      - Armoury Link
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/argent-dawn/arcere
      - Rotation
      Icy Veins recommended (Glacial Spike). Talents as seen in Armoury.
      - Issue
      Disparity between fights, parsing blue on some and green on others and general underperformance DPS-wise.
      Not very talented with Logs Analysis I will be honest, but I have oftentimes fewer casts which could be attributed to moving too much/panicking during mechanics and sometimes the spells appear to not hit as hard by average.
      Some suspect some fights hold my lower than normal FPS as a partial contributor to my low DPS, but I am certain it's purely a rotational/skill combination error on my part, or not utilizing my tools as I should.
      I run Shard of Exodar and Sephuz as it is the best combination according to SimCraft and I have optimized the gear with what I have using the same tool.
      Shattercapped (by far, a little too far) and Haste approx 35%.
       
      Please send help, as I am breaking my brain with what I am doing wrong! 
       
      Thank you in advance!

      Hi!
      I would like to ask somethng about ice lance and other procs aswell.
      To maximize dps, should you always try to get rid of Fingers of Frost procs with ice lances? And if you get flurry proc, do you want to get rid of ice lance procs before casting flurry + lance combo?
      I am not sure how much icicles and maximizing their damage output before dumping them affects your damage.
      Thank you

      Hello mages,
      I'm frost, I'm 922, and I suck on DPS.
      The thing is that I can't find what I'm doing wrong. I played KJ'HC, and i did like 660k dps when I rly try and focus. Otherwise its 560K. I'ts like if there is movement in the fight, I loose a lot of dps - but that would also mean that my "base" dps is also much 2low.
      Would you be so kind and take a look at my log/logs and help me figure out what is happening?
      Here is the log.
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/hvDwTWjJbBmd7gnk/#fight=2&view=analytical&type=summary&source=16
      Its rly frustrating, as once i get inv, I get kicked after a fight...
      This is my askmrrobot gear list.
