Frost Mage looking for a performance improvement

5 posts in this topic

Hi, I'm a frost mage and I'd like some help to improve my mage. I'm a bit of a newbie and just started raiding at the end of the year when I kinda started playing for real. I'm trying to use icy veins rotation, but some times I get too nervous and can't focus on anything but the mechanics so I just do random stuff while I struggle to survive.

Thank you in advance. I'm looking forward to getting to know exactly what I should do to start being less of a newbie.

Hello Luciana,

In your amory, I can see that you are missing a boots and a shoulder enchant. You should apply those. I don't know what "Escrivania: Sem encanto de ombro" means, but you should fix that as well.. :D

Talents, glyphs, reforging are fine. :)

About Jin'rokh:

  • You got Ionization 3 times, but if you follow my guide about heroic mode, you can basically just dance in the water the whole time. http://www.icy-veins.com/forums/topic/1608-throne-of-thunder-mage-style/
  • I cannot see in the log if you stood in the water as much as possible, but if you didn't that is a mistake.
  • However, what I can see is you moved way too much and only used Blazing speed/Blink twice. If you get a ball on you, you should Blink out with it in like the last moments when you can, let the ball explode, than Blazing speed back. Due to the lot of unnecessary movement, you had 46 Frostbolt casts compared to my 92 on the same boss. This is what I see your biggest issue at the moment.
  • Try to familiarize yourself with the rotation. Where your buttons are etc. You cannot afford on Fights like Jin'rokh to look at your keyboard for what to press. Plan ahead. What if I will get a ball on me in a few sec, where I will move? What if we get Ionization soon? What if Lightning storm comes, where should I stand in order to avoid as much balls as possible without moving?
On Horridon, things seem to be fine. However, you should only NT adds that will live long enough for your dot. (Wastewalkers, Frozen Warlords, Horridon etc.) And DPS mainly the big ones, then Horridon. Unless, you see that your raid is really struggling with the adds.

Council: Why didn't your raid use heroism? oO :D You should use Alter Time together with Icy Veins, trinket procs, Heroism, etc. I can see that, you always used it after Icy Veins. I cannot tell this from your logs, but when you get an intellect proc, you should reapply your NT on all targets. :)

Tortos: Again, movement. You have had very low number of FB casts and consequently low number of Ice lances and FFBs. Everything else seems fine.

So, overall your biggest problem, as I can see is that you move too much unnecessarily. You should try to work on that. The topic ("Mage style") I linked above is mainly focusing on Frost mages. (I was a Frost mage when I wrote the guide for most bosses) I would highly recommend you to read it and you will find very useful tips there. /bragging mode off :D

Ty Oltier, I'll work on everything you said. i completely forgot the enchant for those items since I got them the other day.

Jinrokh H: I was afraid I wouldn't be able to dodge the balls during the storm phase, then I chose to save Ice Block.

Council: Heroism was used 1s before the fight I guess.

Tortos: I can't stay still for long. There's always a shell coming for me. Is there a place where they don't go so often?

Ty for the help. I appreciate it.

You are more than welcome! :)

Jin'Rokh. You are doing right about the balls. :) Surviving is more important, than DPSing during that phase, since a dead DPS is no DPS however, you could simply not do any DPS during the lightning phase and purely focus on dodging the balls. Blazing Speed is your great friend! BUT, you should do as much DPS as possible while standing in the water. To do this, it is a bit more important imo, to use the Ice Block+Cold Snap combo there. :)

Tortos. Most of the times, I stand on either side of the room, but NEVER in the middle. Unless, I want to place Frozen Orb on the bats. So basically, hug the wall, when you see a turtle coming towards you, Blazing Speed a bit forward or backwards and you should be fine. :)

      Hey there,
       
      so Ive been turning to icy-veins' guides for advice for some time now, and I hope somebody can help me with my current problem as well. 
      Im a Ret-Pally currently 903 equipped with 45 traits. According to the parses on warcraftlogs and also my personal feeling, Im performing rather poorly on NH HC raids. 
       
      Here's some info:
      Armory: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/azshara/Vorenus/advanced
      WoWLog: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/TZ8gBPH37FYKhzv6/
       
      Things I am already aware of:
      - Zeal isnt optimal for single target (forgot to get tomes to change during raid) 
      - Potion of old war is better than Prolonged power (same issue)
      - Missing enchants on neck and back
       
      Now I see how the above might add up some damage, but it feels like im lacking substantially more. The parse of scorp in particular seemed underwhelming, although this might be because we didnt pull all adds constantly (?). Anyhow, I looked at checkmywow for reference, and I wasted almost no CDs, barely any HP and my HP-Spender with judgement up ratio was between 95 and 100%. 
       
      I dont have access to Convergence or 4 set bonus right now, nor any better legendary than Sephuz. 
       
      I wanna improve but I am kinda stuck right now, unsure of what to work on. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
       
      Regards,
      TemNoc

      Okay, so i got a 3rd legendary for my frost mage, Sephuz's Secret, the issue is that I have the crafted legendary shoulders and Lady Vashj's gloves equipped. My stats: Crit 33%, Haste 23%, Mastery 32%, and Vers 4%. When I equip the ring, my crit and haste bump quite a bit up, and i lose a bit of mastery (because the gloves i use as a replacement have crit and haste too). Should I keep gloves on for their equip bonus, or should i replace them with Sephuz's for the stats and ilvl increase? I know my crit will be above the soft cap with ring, but i can swap gems and enchants for haste ones as noted on the guide.
      ~Thanks, Underclocked

      Welcome all, my name is Ethankey, I am the GM of The Speakeasy Tavern. We are an Alliance semi-hardcore raiding guild on Darkspear. Some of you might know me from speed runs and pugs I run regularly. We are looking for a few key roles to round out our roster in the weeks leading up to ToS. If you haven’t locked in a permanent spot on anyone’s raid roster we would love to talk to you and see if you are what we’re looking for. We are an extremely laid back group and we always have fun together. We are mainly an adult guild but are not biased as long as the maturity level is kept.
      Current Raid Schedule: Progression raiding Fri-Sat 9pm EST. – 1am (7pm st-11pm st) and optional Sunday run at same time if needed. We also do alt/ap runs on Tues. 10 pm Est. (8pm st) along with M+ all week.

      Requirements:
      • Attendance, all raiders are expected to show up for raid nights and be there 15 minutes prior for invite.
      • 890+ ilvl for Heroic nh
      • 900+ ilvl for mythic nh
      • General knowledge of the current fight.
      • Working headset and mic.
      • All required ad ons installed. DBM, RcLoot council, gtfo, healers have to die.
      Recruiting: as of 4/25/17
      Tanks, Warlock, Boomkin,
      Melee Dps ,Healers
      Any strong Dps should also apply.

      What to expect:
      We provide a fun raiding environment with minimal stress. We down bosses at a consistent rate. Expect to laugh and be laughed at when mistakes are made. Wow is still a video game and we want to have fun. Also expect to be serious when the time is called for since we still want to be productive and make the most of our time. We expect our raider to periodically contribute to the guild bank, since we make cauldron and feasts for most raids. We will do whats best for the raid with no favoritism.
      What we expect:
      • We expect our raider’s to periodically contribute to the guild bank, since we make cauldrons and feasts for most raids. You come out way cheaper than providing for yourself.
      • If you can’t make raid times, you to give an officer an advanced notice. In game mail is acceptable. This allows us to provide a more consistent raid.
      Contact us to set up an interview:

      Coming back after a very very long time. Was wondering where I can see which classes are currently performing best in terms of dps in raids/ mythic +
       I have an Outlaw, Survival, Havoc, and Frost DK - I really like all equally honestly and I would like to be taken on raids and perform well with a class that can be able to put those numbers to help with progression. 
       
      TLDR; where can I find reliable and accurate/ up to date DPS ranking and charts?
