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 :)

      So here I am, consulting Icy Veins forums. I am a Frost Death Knight, with an iLevel of 885 that is REALLY struggling with my dps. I'm running a BoS build because it was recommended to my by other Frost Dks. I have done a ton of research about this issue to no avail and I really need some professional help. 
      Here's my armory and my charts for my last Heroic Nighthold with my guild

      Hey guys, I have all 6 tier items (heroic, some WF). My hands are 895, but got a 905 item from mythic chrono.
      Using
      ( Pawn: v1: "Blood": Class=DeathKnight, Spec=Blood, CritRating=4.57, HasteRating=7.57, MasteryRating=3.07, Versatility=6.07, Strength=9.07, Stamina=12.07 )
      (Bad I know, got the numbers from Noxxic, but just swapped mastery and crit around. Matches the balanced priority, been working for me so far lol). Not a bleeding edge raider.
      Current setup

      Proposed setup

       
      Did multiple AMR sims with both setups, and averaged it, and each time 4pc comes out a little ahead. Using Krosus as setup. 

      I'm thinking it;s the versatility on the tier hands that is making the difference, not so much the 25% chance at a rune?
      Thoughts, opinions, Thanks!
