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

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).

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
