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:

 

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.

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 5/11 Mythic Antorus. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:15 PM until 12:15 AM Eastern. Currently, our main goal is to push Mythic progression & finish out the raid before next patch, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us, because we will not be doing Heroic or anything like that.
      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.
      As far as classes are concerned, at this time, we do not have ANY rogues, DPS warriors, havoc DH, or wind walkers.
      If you are interested, add me to battle tag and we will talk (violentravi#1826), I will accept mostly anyone who wants to be a bench or casual, but for raiding purposes, you must be able to provide logs.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Last Pull is a progression focused mythic raiding guild located on the US Cenarius realm. Founded in February 2007, Last Pull has been raiding high end content, not missing a single tier, since the early days of Burning Crusade
      Like any progress guild, we put an emphasis on performance and creating a roster that will succeed in even the toughest content, but we put just as much value on fostering a strong, respectful, and stable community where our raiders can feel at home. We feel this combination of ideals is the secret that has kept our guild both stable and successful.

      - Demon Hunter
      If we are not looking for your class, feel free to apply as we will happily make exceptions for great players. Our primary goal is to find players who will fit in well with our community and have an eye on constant improvement.

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which semi-recently transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some shit.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are in need of any competent DPS, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.
