frost 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.

      Hey all! I need some help with my dps, Im 884 ilvl and only do 350-400k dps overall on fights in Nighthold, even on dummy. 
      I just changed to BoS build so I have to practice, but it feels imossible to get more out of him. Im a bit off at stats and havent got legendary belt, ring or set bonus. Atm I have 25% Crit but only 15% haste :-/ Simcraft says 325 dps... about 360 with Glacial advance build.
      Here is a log from Krosus

      Hey guys,

      I'd appreciate if you could have a look at my trinket sims. I'm a little bit confused about the results, so maybe you could tell me if it seems correct?

      For BoS people say strength > all, but SC reccommends me 2 non strength trinkets. 
      For ST it's Faulty Countermeasure (900) and Unstable Arcanocrystal (865).
      For MT Horn of Valor (865) and Unstable Arcanocrystal (865).

      None of them has strength, could that really be the right choice for BoS?
      I also have Convergence of Fates (875), which is not reccommended as top choice, but i know Simcraft undervalues it a little bit - at least that's what i've heard.

      I run mostly M+ and only 1 day per week Nighthold, so my thoughts were to use the following combinations:
      For M+ Arcanocrystal (865) / Countermeasure (900) with tyrannical affix and Arcanocrystal (865) / Horn (865) for other trash affixes.
      For raiding i thought Countermeasure (900) / CoF (875) would be best, because CoF should be more valuable in longer fights.

      What do you think?

      (Results are in german... but i hope most of the trinket names are still understandable. Currently equipped is FC/IA.)

      Thanks in advance!

      Hey folks,
      I play frost since TBC and since i got my hands on my 3rd legendary and 2 part t19 bonus i struggle with my current build. Maybe you can enlight me :). Here we go:
      I am at an avg gs of 888 with the following stats (unbuffed):
      30% crit
      20% haste
      31% mastery
      3% versatility
      I have the Bracers, cape and belt legendarys at my proposal, currently running with bracers + belt.
      I used to play the "normal" OBRA Build (Icy talons, Frozen Pulse, Runic Attenuation and Glacial Advance)  and did quite well. Since i got my 2 part t19 bonus i am somewhat ressource overcapped and/or GCD limited. Thats why i started tinkering around with my talents.
      Currently i play around with:
      Murderous Efficiency
      Gathering Storm
      Freezing Fog

      Instead of the "normal" OBRA build. I am still not sure if this build yields better dps or not for me. Depending on proc luck i am still overcapped with ressources some times as well as ressource starved at other times cuz of the missing Runic Attenuation talent.
       
      What do you guys think? I tried the BoS build as well but i absolutely HATE its "playstyle". can't get used to that 2 min cooldown. Most of the time I use it in a raid i get some nasty debuff and have to run -> dropping BoS xD. In mythic+ i don't like it as well because it falls off after one pack and takes 2-3 packs until its ready again...
       
      And the last question:
      would you prefere a 880 Chest + 880 trinket (that egg thing with the poor haste proc) over Nightbane Chest at 875 alongside with the eye of command at 860?

      Hi!
      I'm reviewing some of my logs from previous raids, and am wondering how you guys rate the importance of Gathering Storm, and whether you actively try to only have 3 runes regenerating or if you let Gathering Storm just take a back seat and don't focus on it.
      From some research I found that it does have a massive effect on the dps, when successfully extending your Gathering Storm from 10 stacks to a re-cast which refreshes the duration with 10 stacks it can have a huge impact as shown in the below log. (Check Buff Uptimes)

      Please let me know if you've done any personal research and any insight. :)
