Mediocre to low DPS DW Frost DK

My Armory: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/arygos/N%C3%B4rth/simple

My fight log(s): https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/7QNWZVxLFqhbtHDa/#boss=-2&type=damage-done

 

As you can see, I only do mediocre DPS als a DW Frost DK. I tend to think that I use Howling Blast in single target too much since I have around 250-350 uses in a single target fight. Also, I pretty much neglect Obliterate as long as I have enough runes to spam HB and get Runic Power. Trying to use Pillar of Frost as much as possible however I think my use of Empower Rune Weapon is not optimal.

I don't know where to improve my rotation, single target DPS is around 33-37k, depending on the encounter.

 

I also tried to record my fight for Hellfire High Council but it didn't work. I did 41k DPS in total I think. I hope someone can help me improve!

 

Will update with more logs wednesday after the reset.

EDIT: welp, I had to tank.

Well your gear is normal and trinkets aren't even that good for frost  so you can't expect to do much more than you already do obviously there's things to improve like making sure your unholy runes aren't capping and if you manage to use HB as much as possible especially on fights like council then that's good. Can't go through your logs but normally people make  mistakes of capping RP or the runes. Try pooling runic power for Killing Machine procs  since you have t18 4p, use defile  for encounters like council  if you're gonna get the majority of the ticks on your targets. Maybe you can squeeze an extra  2-3k. dps but like i said your gear is far from being optimal.

Thanks for your quick response!

I see your point with the gear issue but I had no luck whatsoever in getting trinkets. They never even dropped for me. If I got one though, would it be better if I replaced my Chipped Soul Prism or my Horn of Screaming Spirits? I don't know about this, since the 2k mastery proc is something I would like to keep until I get an Empty Drinking Horn and one of the other good Trinkets available for me. What do you think about that?

I'd probably keep the Soul Prism your Horn of Screaming Spirits is just 670 item level and you might not be able to get full use of the 10 sec 2k mastery sometimes which makes it even worse. With that being said the Soul Prism isn't all that good either but considering your options there's not much to be done about it. I think the Alchemy trinket is good and ofc the HFC trinkets all of them are probably better than what you have currently.

      CURRENTLY RECRUITING
      Tank Healer DPS ABOUT US
      Currently looking for skilled and laid back raiders for Heroic and eventually Mythic Uldir.
      We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out.
      Players wanting just Mythic+ and a casual experience (no raiding) are welcomed!
      Fun guild events are scheduled every Saturday!
      TLDR; we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
      GOALS FOR BfA
      In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic. 
      This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.) 
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW
      - Mythic+ or Casual: Add me on Battle.net or whisper me in-game for an invite.
      - Raiders: Add me on Battle.net and fill out our app.
      Start the app here!

      Looking for a casually serious progression guild? Hordeland Security could be your new home! We started at launch, and have raided on Blackhand, Baelgun, and now Turalyon. 

      We currently raid on Tuesdays and Thursdays 7:00- 9:15 Central Time. We understand that no one has an unlimited amount of time to play. We raid with a goal oriented focus, to achieve AotC in current content and then progress into Mythic. We also have a few that pvp, a few more that push M+'s, and we've been known do a few mog/achievement runs.
      Interested? Drop us a line!

      Hi everyone,

      We are a guild that transferred from Alexstrasza to join the progression raiding scene as that server is very low population now. We are currently 8/8N and 4/8H uldir, and looking to move into heroics soon and mythic just after. 

      We do more than just raid, we love to do keys, transmog runs, and even some PvP. We have a large range of players from several walks of life and have a unique and fun atmosphere, we are friendly and love helping people. 

      We are looking for a few more members for our Sunday/Monday 5-8pm PST, and our tue/third 5-8pm PST. If anyone is interested in raid leading that will work too.

      We are primarily east coast based but have a plethora of players that are on at all times of day.

      Main needs for our raid team:
      ranged dps
      Healers
      Exceptional players

      Of course all players as welcome as we do other guild activities such as world PVP, keys, xmog and other social activities.

      So come join this very active guild and we hope to hear from you.

      If you would like more information please add my btag at Kaatra#5865.

      I look forward to hearing from all of you.
