Hello Phoenix, do you have any more recent logs? It's hard to determine your DPS for these logs since you were using a tanking trinket (Cursed Plume) and a Saberblade Talisman. While the Cursed Plume isn't terrible, the static bonus armor does nothing for you and having static strength is actually quite a large boost. Also, since you are transitioning from Prot, it's not too big a deal yet until you feel as if you're are underperforming to a very high degree.

 

I noticed you are using ability_paladin_seraphim.jpgSeraphim for this fight, which isn't terrible for Iskar only because before Iskar does Shadow Escape, he is completely alone, but you were only able to maintain about 25% uptime on it, which is about only half as much uptime you should be getting (you should aim for 45-50%). I would recommend using ability_paladin_finalverdict.jpgFinal Verdict for this fight since add management is a very important aspect of Iskar. During add phase, always weave ability_paladin_finalverdict.jpgFinal Verdict and ability_paladin_divinestorm.jpgDivine Storm, even if you don't have ability_paladin_divinestorm.jpgDivine Crusader up. The ability_paladin_finalverdict.jpgFinal Verdict buff is a critical part of improving your AoE potential. I would, however, say it's okay to spam ability_paladin_divinestorm.jpgDivine Storm when you don't think you'll have time to get another ability_paladin_divinestorm.jpgDivine Storm after using ability_paladin_finalverdict.jpgFinal Verdict.

 

Also, since you have some time, switch to spell_holy_righteousnessaura.jpgSeal of Righteousness right after Iskar uses Shadow Escape. It was also help your AoE a lot. This is even more so when you get Empty Drinking Horn, which is a solid 10% boost to your DPS. Without it, you'll always be about 8-10% lower than DPS who do have it.

 

I also can't tell if your flasked or not? If not, then I would use a strength flask. Don't underestimate 250 strength. Your stat distribution looks fine. You have quite a bit of haste, but that's not a huge loss. 20% crit is good since you have 10% multistrike. And you have a decently high mastery. I would recommend switching slowly to multstrike above crit, but they are both very close on sims, so the difference can be negligible, but I feel multistrike is more consistent.

 

I can't see too much information on your rotation, so it's hard to help you there unless you provide a little more info yourself. I do see that your spell_paladin_hammerofwrath.jpgHammer of Wrath damage is quite low. It should never be higher than your melee strikes, which makes me think that you're not using it nearly as much as you should. Since you had 2pc Tier, it should almost always be 2nd or 3rd. In this case, 3rd is okay to ability_paladin_divinestorm.jpgDivine Storm since it's an add fight.

 

I'd like to help you more, but since it's been a week since then, I'd like to hear some of your comments and maybe see some updated progress? Also, if you can, use Warcraft logs since Mr. Robot doesn't contain as much information.

      Okay so I just started my first WoW player since 2009, and I completed all first mandatory missions and some misions to allow me do certain things like missions to show me how to pet a monster. Then, I skipped everything, me being level 2 undead and went to lvl 13 area (as I usually do in all MMOs) and farmed a bit until lvl 4 then I got bored and accidentally used a zepelin that flew me to Orgrimmar so I took advantage and went to lvl 17 area me being lvl 4 until reach lvl 6 and went to an area with lvl from 17 to IDK lvl and killed one lvl 17 deer then I went to some kind of troll or whatever that was lvlv 20, me being lvl 6 and killed it, I again got bored instantly and went farther through that rollercoaster until I reach the end and monsters there instead of a level have a skull which I assume means their lvl is 15 or 20 lvls more then mine, killed some with ease but I realised I only got 96 EP per kill, which is so little for me being lvl 7 or 6 and needing 5000 EP to levelup
      Do those skull level monsters give only a bit of experience, or all monsters I kill give EP depending on my own level, not on their own? Or is just that WoW works like this and if I kill a lvl 12 monster (twice my lvl, 6 lvls of difference) they would give me like 23 EP? 
      Is it always this hard to level up in WoW?

      Hey guys.
      So almost every raid, I compare myself to the other DK in group, and cannot figure out why there is always a decent difference in DPS between us.
      First...my Logs link:  https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/us/whisperwind/imnotdedyet
       
      I know I am doing decent DPS, but never quite the same as him. We have same talents that matter, legos are comparable I think...I do have the lego helm, just swapped it for the bracers. The only main difference I can find is that he has higher base stats than me. So does the base stats make that big of a difference? Is it merely a RNG hates me issue?
       
      THanks guys!

      Hi all!
      First, I thank you for this great page and guides for Frost DKs.
      Second, sorry about my bad english. Its not my native language, and the weather is too hot to handle, and I'm lasy to fix my errors :) I promise, I'll make as few as I can...
      And on topic:
      Yesterday, I found my...7th legendary, the Seal of Necrofantasia (ignore the wowhead ilevel, it does not matter in my perspective). I used the good old Koltira's Newfound Will +Toravon's Whiteout Bindings combo to get things done. Also, I have a Consort's Cold Core as a dustcatcher in my bank. Also I have a necklance (the shield giving one) and a boot (that every melee can wear), I placed them in my bank, for memories, they are not as usefull. I do not have the new ring yet, nor the trinkets.
      Here is my noob DK's armory link: https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/arathor/vulpius
      My question is, what legendary combination should I use? As a cookie-cutter, I dont realy feel fancy to swap items in that short time when I have time to play :)
      I'm a medicore Frost DK player, not the best but not the worst... also, we are doing ToS normal, and next week, or in two weeks, we will start ToS HC. I wont play in every day in every raid, but still, I want to do more damage/fun :)
      I use BoS build as written here on Icy-veins. Also I understand that the Seal will be the best legendary, but... what would be my second?
      Thank you for reading this, and thanks in advance.
       
      EDIT: armory does not look like to be updated...

      Can anyone provide a sim sheet, so I can see the DPS differences between legendaries in combination, like:
      Waist and Back = ??? DPS
      Shoulders and Back = ??? DPS
      Shoulders and Waist = ??? DPS
      Reason is, I have Shoulders and Back, but I'm curious to see what a Back and Waist combo DPS would be in comparison. Wanting to know if the numbers are small or large.

      Howdy howdy!
       
      Requisite armory link: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/aggramar/Mayo/simple Requisite most recent parse: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/character/93755/latest Am I following the Icy Veins rotation? Yup, for the most part, unless I have a brain fart. With that out of the way, I want to start by saying that I’m not unsatisfied by my DPS, but I know that I can do more / do better. 
      I’ve got two of the best legendaries (Ashes to Dust & Chain of Thrayn), two of what I think are the best trinkets. I’ve got the Claw of the Crystalline Scorpid (880) and the Entwined Elemental Foci (890) but don’t use them currently because my sims are showing Convergence of Fates (895) & Might of Krosus (895) being ~7-10k higher, but I’m very open to hearing if maybe the sims aren’t as accurate as I’d like to think they are.
      I’m just... stuck on how to get there. I was hoping that I could get some sage advice from other paladins in here.
      All of your thoughts are most appreciated.
      Thanks,
      Mayo
