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).

      I love mogging. To my knowledge, these are all original. I'm sharing cause I love finding cool mogs to spark my imagination and push the boundaries of what I've made. You'll notice I have favorite pieces of gear that I re-use in a number of these. As far as I know these are all blood elf death knight obtainable. I have completed almost every set you see here. I'm currently digging frost...

      I have one of every class so I'll eventually have a video up for them all. I won't be sharing what each piece is. You are of course welcome to remake them yourself, I've just found that discovering the pieces and trying to see which ones fit really help devolop mog sense. If that's what you're looking for, this video should be fun!

      I will NOT be using BoS in 7.1.5...  why?
      http://www.wowhead.com/item=132459/perseverance-of-the-ebon-martyr
      Build:
      http://www.wowhead.com/talent-calc/death-knight/frost/cj7z
      Basically with the combination of Gathering Storm (extended RW) and fitting more Rime into that time period I'm hoping that my M+ hybrid spec will remain competitive and the sims thus far seem to support the theory.
      If you have the helm too, grats! and look forward to the major increase in it's power with Freezing Fog +30% and Tier 19 based around more Rime and more RP from Rime we should see many viable builds popping up on logs. **Stay with FP for now until you have T19 x 2 - see updated build link ^^
      Why not BoS and Hungering? ... well, I'm looking for big Rime crits and don't fancy the long CD to manage. I also want to remain powerful in M+ which should be the case with this build... I'm pretty sure I can become more useful with Winter is Coming + extended RW... stunning mobs for the whole of PoF uptime.
      Obliteration will be used to maximise rune spam for Gathering Storm.
      Lets hear your thoughts?

      So, i'm lvl 866 crit - castigator - soul reaper. Crit 27%, haste 18%, mastery 29%.  Draugr, Girdle of the Everlasting King and Sephuz's Secret. I simc at 305k dps single target. When i switch to CS - necrosis - dark arbiter, i simc at 298k dps. But my gear is crit-heavy low-mastery and i've no Deadliest coil traits yet, so i wonder if mastery build is really better now. But icy and noxxic still suggest crit-build. Does anyone have the possibility and gear to simc two of this builds with the same ilvl gear. Please share.
