Frost mage - Help with DPS

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:

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.

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo
