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.

      SERVER: Illidan
      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time.
      LEGION PROGRESSION: 2/11M at the end, started Mythic on every other raid tier.
       
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING*
      Tanks All DPS (Healer offspec preferred but not required) ABOUT US
      Now recruiting for BFA!
      Currently looking for skilled and laid back Tanks & DPS for the upcoming expansion.
      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. 
      Fun guild events are scheduled often!
      Overall, 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.) 
      SCHEDULE UNTIL BFA*
      We are currently on a hiatus until BFA hits, so most of our members are highly active in Discord as opposed to on WoW.
                *Schedule subject to changes.

      Hey everyone,
      So, I think my problem is my gear as I have been trying to rack my brain on why my dps is not that great in raids. Some of it I admit is probably not sticking 100% to my rotation, but any help/suggestions would definitely be appreciated.
      You can find the analyzer for the most recent log here: https://wowanalyzer.com/report/4K3dCR86gfMv2Njt/2-LFR+Antoran+High+Command/Darkbriar
       
      Thanks in advance! 😎

      Hi all,
      Im not sure where to post this but im hoping someone can help or at least point me in the right direction.
      TL;DR - My DPS is awful and i want to increase it
      I played fire & frost spec back in cata upto 85 and have recently got back into WoW again and finally realised what people talk about when they play "end game" i wish id known about raiding sooner!
      However, My DPS isnt great at all im eq 959 ilvl but my DPS comes out as low as 8-900 sometimes or i can hold a steady 1.1-1.2M. Simc comes out around 1.7M (obviously in a perfect world) but i still feel im doing something wrong.
      Ive watched videos, read forums and im sure my rotation is right. Im using Flask, Food and Runes and Pre-potting. I have some logs here of garothi.
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/XRqCaL6jFVpW9MnG#fight=5&type=summary&source=23&view=events
      and this is my Raider.io - https://raider.io/characters/eu/twisting-nether/Buksh
      Not sure if ive posted this in the right place OR if ive given enough info to help. but anything would be hugely appreciated.
