Confusing dw guide rotation

Hello ma friends, 

 

Im wondering why in dw guide says we should use only FS on KM proc, and ONLY if rp is over 88. This is really confusing for people who just started playing and mastering their DK.

 

My question here is: What should we do if we have for example all frost,uh,death runes on cooldown and no blood tap for use ? So untill next HB is 4 sec, our runic power is (lets say around 50), should we use all rp on FS untill hb - obli come back from cooldown ? Im doing always like this : Spamming HB if no KM proc, if KM proc I hit fs and keep spamming hb till its on cooldown, while hb is on cd im using all runic power on FS.  So it means i never ''save'' runic if my runes are on cooldown. Is this rotation okey peeps ? I also prioritize obli over hb if 2UH runes are up, and never capping rp.

 

 

Thanks, versace.

not going to lie, had a hard time reading that. but i get the general idea of your question (I think).

 

With dual wield frawst frost strike hits like a freight train and is a huge source of damage. That being said it is high on your priority list. You want to get the most out of it so you want to prioritize using it with a KM proc to guarantee a crit. This is in short what the guide is aiming at. You want to make sure you have enough runic power to land a KM proc Frost Strike the second it procs. You don't want to frost strike and lose the chance of having a KM frost strike (use frost strike, no runic power, KM procs, you feel bad). This sorta gets easier with 4 piece set, you almost always will have KM available.

 

So there is  a balance. You want to have as many KM Frost strikes as possible. If you are resource locked and can't do anything else sure go ahead and cast frawst strike without KM that's fine. Its just in general you want to have resources saved to take advantage of KM as soon as possible so it can proc again. So you will find your own balance of howling blast spam and weaving in frost strikes to maximize KM uses. It's better though to cast a non KM frost strike then do nothing at all

 

hope that helps :)

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      Hello,
      I seem to do very little damage on my opener and then following it up later.
      Here are my logs https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/9gqQaXwfmFGzH6Dy#fight=25&type=summary
      My armory https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/ravencrest/fettucini 
      I'm curious whether this is just bad playing or a lack of gear.

      Hello all! I figured i'd make this thread to get some up to date information on the AOE rotation for unholy.  Currently i'm 935 ilvl, and I run Incstructor's fourth lesson and Soul. (For lack of a better option.) However it is my understanding that these two legendaries make for the strongest aoe rotation. Is this true?

       That is my first question. My second is what is the priority for aoe when running these two. Is it to wait for defile to drop, then festering wound a target a couple times, then Scourge Strike? Or is the priority to just put Wounds on then pop them asap, dropping the defile whenever it's available. Typically I wait for defile before I start building Wounds, but given the soul and the extra talent, i suspect it's better to just aoe without Defile if it's unavailable or perhaps just better to rarely spend runes on defile? Curious as to your thoughts!

      Like the title says, I am just seeking some extra help on how I can improve my performance. I dont feel like my dps is lacking but think it could be better.

      Side note: When I have Icy Veins + BL up I catch myself overriding FOF or BF procs because its not registering my keypresses fast enough. Anyone else run into this issue?
