DW Frost

4 posts in this topic

I just switched from a 2-hand to DW and feel like i am falling behind.  I have looked at all the stuff on noxxic and icy veins and say that the two specs should be doing about the same single target.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Noxxic and Icy are mostly behind on the most up to date data, currently the sims for ST are:

and for cleave:

As you can see above 1H frost is lacking in ST and ok in cleave.

If you really want the most dmg out of your char you will have to go unholy.

The stat priorities are also different for the two, so that might be partly why you are falling behind. Can't be more specific without logs/armory.

Logs would help a lot. As previously noted in raw sims 1h frost is on the lower end of DK dps. You can be competitive but it takes a lot more work. For BRF you should be able to do pretty good because of the cleave fest but on single target bawses you will see a drop in dps.

      Hey guys, I have all 6 tier items (heroic, some WF). My hands are 895, but got a 905 item from mythic chrono.
      Using
      ( Pawn: v1: "Blood": Class=DeathKnight, Spec=Blood, CritRating=4.57, HasteRating=7.57, MasteryRating=3.07, Versatility=6.07, Strength=9.07, Stamina=12.07 )
      (Bad I know, got the numbers from Noxxic, but just swapped mastery and crit around. Matches the balanced priority, been working for me so far lol). Not a bleeding edge raider.
      Current setup

      Proposed setup

       
      Did multiple AMR sims with both setups, and averaged it, and each time 4pc comes out a little ahead. Using Krosus as setup. 

      I'm thinking it;s the versatility on the tier hands that is making the difference, not so much the 25% chance at a rune?
      Thoughts, opinions, Thanks!

      Hey everyone, 
      I just got Kiljaeden trinket  as my third legendary and I am questionning which legendary to use.
      Legendaries i have: Perseverance (helm), Seal of necrofantasia, Kiljaeden trinket
      Trinket i have: CoF 875, Memento 865, Arcano crystal 860, Claw of the scorpid 900, kiljaeden 940
       
      When I sim my DK with new trinket, the CoF 875 and the 900 ring Ii get around 10k more dps (~593k single raid target) whereas when i sim my character with necrofantasia + CoF + claw of scorpid 900, i get around 582-583k.
       
      What i'm thinking is that Kiljaeden might be better in M+ whereas Necrofantasia might be better in Raids, but i'm really not sure ... any help is greatly appreciated ;)
       
      also, if i should use Necrofantasia, is CoF 875 + claw of the scorpid 900 the "ideal" trinket combo i could use with the trinkets i have in my posession ?

      Thank you very much for any insight!

      Hey all! I need some help with my dps, Im 884 ilvl and only do 350-400k dps overall on fights in Nighthold, even on dummy. 
      I just changed to BoS build so I have to practice, but it feels imossible to get more out of him. Im a bit off at stats and havent got legendary belt, ring or set bonus. Atm I have 25% Crit but only 15% haste :-/ Simcraft says 325 dps... about 360 with Glacial advance build.
      Here is a log from Krosus
