Frost mage - Help with DPS

Recommended Posts

Hello - I'm sure you guys get really sick of this question, but nevertheless here goes.

 

My DPS seems really low for my iLvl (684).  My rotation is more or less what is recommended in the IV frost mage guide (I think).  Here are links to my Armory and a recent combat log:

 

Armory:  http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/area-52/Courv%C3%B6isier/advanced

 

Log (H Flamebender):https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/kBmbw6r2qznCNDxa#fight=84&type=damage-done&source=6

 

Hoping someone out there can help me figure out what I'm doing wrong, or perhaps more likely, failing to do right.

 

Thanks - Cour

~7 min fight, you should have 3 casts of troll racial (Berserking) + 3 casts of icy veins + 4 casts of mirror image

 

You have:

0 casts of Berserking

2 casts of Icy Veins (1st near pull and 2nd near 5min mark)

3 casts of mirror image

 

Macro Icy Veins and Berserking together

 

#Showtooltip Icy Veins
/cast Icy Veins
/cast Berserking
 
Edit: Also noticed that your 2nd int potion was not lined up with any other cooldowns. Mirror images should come off cd at same time as your third cast of Icy Veins so use the 2nd int potion then
 
Edit2: Try using Ice Nova instead of Unstable Magic and save up charges to dump during big CDs like Icy Veins + you can save charges to give you better burst during specific mechanics (i.e. dogs)\
 
Edit3: You should iceblock to solo-soak molten torrents whenever possible and cancel the iceblock as soon as the meteor hits you so you don't waste damage. Its a damage increase for you + lowers healing requirements on raid. Consider doing it especially if you get molten torrent while dogs are active.

Thanks a lot for taking a look Ralwn!

 

  • I thought Berserking was a passive racial - I've got it macroed with IV now.
  • Will work on making sure 2nd potion is coupled with another cool down.
  • I actually have Frost Bomb talented in this spec - unstable magic is for my fire spec.  I've tried using Frost Nova instead of Frost Bomb, and will experiment with this more.
  • I do generally solo-soak molten torrent whenever I can.

Thanks again for the advice.

      Hi everyone. So I've read the guide on fire mage here on Icy-veins and got some questions related to single target rotation. First I'd like to ask about the meteor. It is mentioned that meteor should be used with Rune of Power which is fairly easy to do since Rune of Power is always ready when Metor is off cooldown. However It's also mentioned that Meteor should always be available when Combustion comes off cooldown. Now Combustion has a 2 min cooldown and meteor has 45 sec cooldown. I can use meteor twice while Combustion is on cooldown. However If I use Meteor twice , It is on cooldown when Combustion is ready. Should I wait for Combustion and not cast Meteor on the second time until Combustion is ready?
      Second what I'd like to ask is about Combustion after the opener. Its mentioned that I need a hot streak before I pop It. I fish for Pyros by casting Fireball until I get a crit and then use Fire Blast. However when I get an Hot streak I'm already mid-casting Fireball. Should I cancel the cast and cast Rune of Power or should I let that Fireball hit and immediately after start casting Rune of Power?
      It's also mentioned that I need to have a Fire Blast charge always ready before going in Combustion phase. Should I save up a charge and ignore the Heating Ups I get regardless and hope for Fireball to crit twice or basically wait for Fire Blast to get another charge?
      Thanks 🙂
