1) Moved this to the mage section for mage specific help. (i'm not a mage so....)

2) I didn't think world of logs was still around and/or active.  Damn.  Still has the terrible interface too.  Upload your logs to http://www.warcraftlogs.com/ as people here will have a much, much, easier time reading WCL.

I see you're running a glacial spike build, so what i'm about to say is more geared towards a thermal void build with Ice Lance as your main dps.. Also with the way our artifact weapon rewards you for stacking crit due to frozen veins, chain reaction and let it go...I find going to the glacial spike route a lil counter intuitive...at higher ilvls where you can get gear to maintain a 33% crit while also having around 30% haste and good mastery then a glacial spike build could be more viable...of course that is my opinion.

 

but bottom line as i see it...

 

Your crit is low. Your crit needs to be around 33% for raiding. The reason for this is your shatter ability which causes your ice lances to hit for much more. currently your crit is 24.59 which in shatter terms looks like this 24.59*1.5+50=86.88 then you factor in crit suppression of bosses/mobs (or -1% per level above your own) which is -3% crit, which leaves you with 83.885 chance to crit on frozen targets with ice lance.

 

Basically you need to add another 10% more crit to get to around 34.59 (minimum 33).

      I am new to mmos and I was playing an Arcane Mage but my fiance said frost mages are better so I am trying to learn how to play it and I have watched videos and gone over the icy viens information but it is still very confusing for me. I know this sounds bad but can anyone like dumb it down or like comment simpler instructions right now i am going off this attachment i made based of some advice and off of icy viens and i am only doing 4152 dps total so I am not sure if this is low or not but I am already level 120 right now

      So uhm, first post here and i take the opportunity to take you guys through my fabulous journey into "breaking" the tavern brawl this morning.
       
      So i get on that six-shooter tavern brawl with a mage decklist ( just cause i need them gold from quest ya know :D ) and on my second or third game,
       
      I play Research Project my opponent had then 10 cards in hand and draws for the turn, but no deck refill.... He then plays Barnes, no minion comes up from the battlecry. so it aint a visual bug. start my turn, play another Research Project, my opponent fatigues for 1+2, i can then OTK him with my 0 costs spells due to my 4 copies of Sorcerer's Apprentice.
      Fun fact, the tavern brawl clearly says; Make a six-card deck and duel! Don't worry - when you're out of cards you get a free reload!.
      Can anyone recall to this happening to them or no one had the cojones to mill?

      Hi
      I am currently looking for people to pop into my streams and see if I can improve my dps rotation and all around wow play. Any feedback is appreciated

      So I've got these two specific items. The ACI is one of the most used trinkets on shadow priest, but compared to the Infernal, it has a low ilvl. The effect of Infernal stacks every second, and since critical strike is now the bis stat for shadow priest,  which one of the trinkets would you pick? 🙂
       
      Thanks in advance! 🙂
