[713] Frost Mage Help

3 posts in this topic

Hey, I've never posted here before, but seeing as Altered-Time seems to be pretty dead, and I couldn't find another ElitistJerks-esque site, I figured you guys might be able to help me.

 

I've been sort of disappointed with my DPS as of late, and was wondering if I was doing something drastically wrong. I have some logs

I know they are RF logs, but my DPS was about the same in heroic HFC, yet I parsed FAR lower. I suppose that has to do with the calibre of players in raidfinder, or maybe itemization and gear (Most heroic raiders seem to have their class trinket and 2/4pc at my ilvl). 

 

I would greatly appreciate it if you guys could help out, as I feel kind of crappy. I never felt like this in Highmaul when I did mythic stuff, maybe I'm just rusty? Or did the spec change greatly in 6.2.3 with better gear?

First thing is you are using bad talents. Frost bomb is awful and only viable on heavy aoe fights like xhul. Ice nova until you have 4 set then you run UM. 

 

I really don't know how to analyze logs for frost to be honest. Make sure you aren't wasting FoF procs or BF procs. Your activity is also low. Always practice to have 99%+ uptime. Learn to use flows more effectively (bind it to one of the easy to access side button on you mouse). Especially as frost with so many instant procs, you should always be planning your movement so have some instant casts ready to go when moving.

 

Also, anytime you have more than 1 target such as council, run TV and not PC. Also PC is only a small dps upgrade from comet storm and comet storm is MUCH easier to use so keep that in mind also. Also seems you forgot to use RoP on kilrogg? And RoP is pretty much not viable on most fights in heroic/mythic HFC unless its on mega farm mode.

 

Sorry I couldn't be more help. All in all your dps seems quite decent but I don't have much to compare to. All I know is I see much worse sometimes even in mythic groups!

1) Get that Frost Bomb out of there. The breakpoint for that talent being good anywhere but heavy AoE is like... 600-something ilvl. Plus it's fidgety and annoying. Ice Nova is pretty great, as is Unstable Magic with tier set (breakpoint for UM>Nova can be earlier than 4-set, and it was for me; sim it with your gear).

 

2) On Manno you missed your first PC (yeah, I know, it's just the trash that's part of the boss, but it IS lost DPS); on Gore you didn't hold your second one for Feast/BL.

 

3) The tier set and class trinket matter a lot. Not like they do for arcane where (alongside Prophecy of Fear) they make the entire spec, but still a lot. Even if you can't get class trinket you can at least hunt down an HFC trinket; all of the HFC caster trinkets are pretty good for frost, so you're spoiled for choice there.

 

In general your play seems good; you just want to improve your uptime slightly (by using Alter Time and Ice Floes correctly) and tweak your DPS talents. I second Irugard's suggestions on talents. And... you need gear. Tier set. Second trinket, preferably from Archimonde.

      Since 7.1.5 it seems that Cinderstorm and/or Meteor are valid options and often outperform Kindle. 
      How to properly include them in you rotation? Would be great if the guide would highlight the use of them.
      Questions like:
      Cinderstorm > Rop > Combustion > Instant Pyro > and so on  , does this really work to get 5 stacks of pyretic incantation? Cinderstorm on cooldown or only as filler if FB is on CD with HS up? When to use Meteor in Single Target Rotation?

      Hey All!
      So I have not figured out simming yet so I am hoping some nice, experienced mages could help me out? So the trinkets I am using currently are an 885 wriggiling sinew and 855 shock-baton for single target. After reading the new BiS trinkets on this site I am a little confused. I'm still using RoP because of sinew but is sinew bad now? My DPS is not bad but I would still prefer to be utilizing my character to the max.
      I have a 875 urn, 870 spiked tongue, and 880 plaguehive. Would either of those be better on ST?
      Really appreciate any comments / help, thank you!

      17 traits
      Logs: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/character/21010315/10/#metric=bossdps

      My DPS is really comically low. These logs are old and I hadn't read the compendium at the time, but even after doing that I can't stay above like 160k on target dummies. Simcraft is telling me I should be pushing close to 300k, and the people in the Warrior discord tell me that I should be able to get pretty close to those numbers.

      So can someone just come meet me in Skyhold and help me out or something? I've read about the rotation, and had people tell me it, but I just need someone to like see what I'm doing wrong or something.

      I'm Boogal on Emerald Dream US, horde side. Send me a whisper or reply here I guess.

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 8/10N NH 4/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review, make a character on our realm and inbox me, or hit me up on real ID (violentravi#1826).  Alternatively, if you are old school, please apply via our website:  http://www.adelante-guild.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo
      Violentnacho & the Guild
