DK back after skipping MoP/WoD

2 posts in this topic

Former Blood and Frost DK, back in action.  Things have changed a LOT since I had to spec into DW Frost ;)

Here is the armory:

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/malfurion/Nuadda/advanced

Here is my current rotation for World Quest/overworld play(outside of dungeons):

HB to Open->OB->OB->RW->FS until RP exhausted/OB is available(I forget to use PoF unless I am going after a rare or planning a aoe burst).

Should I use KM procs for FSc since I have that in my spec?

I'm having the following main issues:

1. I seem to be Rune starved, so that's why I am hitting FS so much.

2. Survivability can sometimes be an issue if I am not using RW on each cooldown.

3. Recently got this as my first legendary, unsure if I should actually use it:

So far the plan is to gather heroic upgrades and patch the class gear, but will welcome any suggestions

Welcome back!

If you like FSc, use it on packs of 3+ only.  Otherwise use OB.  Currently, imo the choice of talent for that tier is RA. Also, GA or Obliteration depending on what your doing. BoS is going to be buffed soon, but until then its underperforming.

Being rune starved isnt too bad because it takes advantage of FP.  It means you're doing it right. 

try to get your haste to 30% which is a breakpoint, since you're so close already.

i dont see anything wrong with your build that would make survivability any more of an issue than anyone else. Avoid poo and hit DS.  PvP is a problem for frost currently, if thats what the issue is.

use the ledge as a stat stick until you get a better pve upgrade.  Consider Abominations Might instead of Blinding Sleet. For pvp it seems to have some utility.

      I usually sim my characters to get the best possible results. I enjoy the process quite a lot and since I reached 120, I wanted to find out the best build of the spec. (Note, I didn't want to find out what to play, but rather how my own build fares in comarison.) I rarely mind a 1-2% difference. If it goes above 2%, I really mind a change. What this thread is about is mainly to bring something in the attention of those who help making the class guides, especially the talent choices. To my surprise, I was awed to find out that certain talents outperform previous "Standard" choices in the endgame, probably due to the stat squish.

      The Frost go-to build (top dps) would probably be along the lines of <Icy Talons / Cold Heart - Runic Attenuation - Frozen Pulse - Gathering Storm - Breath of Sindragosa>. What I found out primarily was that after the removal of legendaries, Cold Heart severely underperforms at most given situations resulting in a major dps drop due to the low mastery. Gathering Storm also suffers from the same problem and most of the times, Frostwyrm's Fury is better overall. The biggest surprise of them all, however, was that Inexorable Assault overperforms quite a lot, and is the first reason why I made the topic. I then started simming with the above in mind and I came across a build that some would not consider on par with top dog builds around the meta, which is the use of Horn of Winter which overperforms both its other two options when using the Breath build. Talent Sim can be seen here. Another intresting thing, which I loved, was that the 2nd best build uses Obliteration as a lvl 100 talent and no other build surpassed it (Other than the first one, obviously). So, I encourage frost players out there to give their other, less common talents a try. To the class guide author(s), I believe that the two "underdog" talents will earn their spot in the class guides.

      Thank you for your time reading this.

      Hi all,
      Im not sure where to post this but im hoping someone can help or at least point me in the right direction.
      TL;DR - My DPS is awful and i want to increase it
      I played fire & frost spec back in cata upto 85 and have recently got back into WoW again and finally realised what people talk about when they play "end game" i wish id known about raiding sooner!
      However, My DPS isnt great at all im eq 959 ilvl but my DPS comes out as low as 8-900 sometimes or i can hold a steady 1.1-1.2M. Simc comes out around 1.7M (obviously in a perfect world) but i still feel im doing something wrong.
      Ive watched videos, read forums and im sure my rotation is right. Im using Flask, Food and Runes and Pre-potting. I have some logs here of garothi.

      and this is my Raider.io - https://raider.io/characters/eu/twisting-nether/Buksh
      Not sure if ive posted this in the right place OR if ive given enough info to help. but anything would be hugely appreciated.

      Hi everyone. I just killed HC Varimathras and I was surprised by my low damage. There was not second time warp because we used the first one at 20% HP but I think I should get higher numbers. Can anyone tell me what did I do wrong? Was it really only in TW? I do not think so :/.

      Hello, I'd like to recieve feedback on my lock's deck.
      I was away from hearthstone since the expansion before kobolds and catacombs so it has been a while. I don't have much cards from the kobolds and monsters; but still here's my deck which is fun to play.

      Any suggestions on how to improve this one?

      The strategy is simple; using the deathrattle minions to kill them with the other warlock's minions, and using demons so DK Gul'dan can revive them.
