Confusing dw guide rotation

2 posts in this topic

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 :)

      I love mogging. To my knowledge, these are all original. I'm sharing cause I love finding cool mogs to spark my imagination and push the boundaries of what I've made. You'll notice I have favorite pieces of gear that I re-use in a number of these. As far as I know these are all blood elf death knight obtainable. I have completed almost every set you see here. I'm currently digging frost...

      I have one of every class so I'll eventually have a video up for them all. I won't be sharing what each piece is. You are of course welcome to remake them yourself, I've just found that discovering the pieces and trying to see which ones fit really help devolop mog sense. If that's what you're looking for, this video should be fun!

      I will NOT be using BoS in 7.1.5...  why?
      http://www.wowhead.com/item=132459/perseverance-of-the-ebon-martyr
      Build:
      http://www.wowhead.com/talent-calc/death-knight/frost/cj7z
      Basically with the combination of Gathering Storm (extended RW) and fitting more Rime into that time period I'm hoping that my M+ hybrid spec will remain competitive and the sims thus far seem to support the theory.
      If you have the helm too, grats! and look forward to the major increase in it's power with Freezing Fog +30% and Tier 19 based around more Rime and more RP from Rime we should see many viable builds popping up on logs. **Stay with FP for now until you have T19 x 2 - see updated build link ^^
      Why not BoS and Hungering? ... well, I'm looking for big Rime crits and don't fancy the long CD to manage. I also want to remain powerful in M+ which should be the case with this build... I'm pretty sure I can become more useful with Winter is Coming + extended RW... stunning mobs for the whole of PoF uptime.
      Obliteration will be used to maximise rune spam for Gathering Storm.
      Lets hear your thoughts?

      So, i'm lvl 866 crit - castigator - soul reaper. Crit 27%, haste 18%, mastery 29%.  Draugr, Girdle of the Everlasting King and Sephuz's Secret. I simc at 305k dps single target. When i switch to CS - necrosis - dark arbiter, i simc at 298k dps. But my gear is crit-heavy low-mastery and i've no Deadliest coil traits yet, so i wonder if mastery build is really better now. But icy and noxxic still suggest crit-build. Does anyone have the possibility and gear to simc two of this builds with the same ilvl gear. Please share.
