Frost DPS check

Hi, done my first set of raids on my DK (alt) and I am looking for any potential improvements to really maximize my DPS on the fights. A check into the fights looking at my rotation would be nice to clear up any mistakes I am making. My work in progress list is to ensure i don't drop the icey talons buff as often and have higher up time on it across all fights. Or little things on a per fight basis for example the use of AMS for some mechanics. The parses seem good other than the fights where i died, I am aware the more basic improvements can be use of pots and food as i noticed it was lacking both the majority of the time. 

My main reason for posting is that my DPS didn't seem to go up despite my item level rising.

(ursoc) Checking your logs minus stuff like consumables. You're not casting Remorseless winter off cd decent bit of delay between a lot of your casts. Only a 93.56% uptime on your dot. Fairly good about staying 2 runes or under little room for improvement but nothing specifically concerning. Now looking deeper into the log. Your first use of Obliteration you went Obliteration> Obliterate(with no killing machine proc)> FS>OB>FS>OB  then didn't FS right away to regain another KM. So more or less you missed 2 killing machines out of it. You also didn't cast empower runic weapon until the last second of the fight and only got 1 OB out of it so more or less not making the most use out of that.

Thanks for the feedback, its made me more aware of my cool down usage and have altered my UI to give a better indicator of the duration of frost fever to ensure I am not letting it drop.

In regards to remorseless winter just wondering if you could give me an idea of what takes priority over using it on cool down i.e KM procs as i would assume this is a higher priority use of runes over remorseless winter.

Rime>KM(unless during obliteration)>icy talons>Remorseless=frozen pulse (they technically work together in procing frozen pulse)>Oblit/FS During obliteration it OB/FS are highest priority.

      I came to Icy Veins to setup my Elemental Shaman only to find your Talent setup does not match what is offered in the game presently.  Below I have listed what I see in my current in-game talent setup and bolded those items that do not match your setup at all.
      Current in-game Talents listed:                                                   Your Listing:                      
      15 Exposed Elements Echo of the Elements Elemental Blast               Earthen Rage 30 Aftershock Master of Elements Totem Mastery       Call the Thunder 45 Spirit Wolf Earth Shield Static Charge         60 High Voltage Storm Elemental Liquid Magma Totem       Master of the Elements 75 Nature's Guardian Ancestral Guidance Wind Rush Totem         90 Earthen Rage Primal Elementalist Icefury       Surge of Power 100 Unlimited Power Stormkeeper Ascendance         I thought someone here should know about these differences because it appears there has been no update recently to your setup.   I know that I personally would appreciate an update so that I can adjust my in-game setup to work better.

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which semi-recently transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some shit.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are in need of any competent DPS, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.
