Frost DK stat weights for BoS build in 7.1.5?

11 posts in this topic

Does anybody have any information? Should I get haste gear already?

We don't even know what the stat weights for frost are now, let alone 7.1.5.

In my mind it is unlikely to be a ST viable build. The question is, will the damage of it make up for 1. Lost KM oblit crits; 2. Letting Icy Talons stacks drop; 3. Overcapping runes, disabling FP.

Thinking about in this way, BoS seems like it would be the red headed step child/ability in the rotation.

Then there's a "balanced" build which takes GA over obliteration for "overall" damage purposes.

Or the pure dungeon build that takes Frostscythe and obliteration (which wrecks in dungeons btw).

This last build is where I see a buffed BoS "could" take over. A Frostscythe/BoS build for mythic dungeoneering.

The short and sweet I'm seeing a lot of is OBRA until Tier set, and once Tier BOS build likely stormbreath

I remember

In many ways its kinda like the dk rotation. 

There will be blood boil moments, death and decay all over the place during nappy changes and constant aggro pulls when you forget that you were supposed to get up this time even though it wasnt your turn to get up. :)

Stat weights are what simulations tell you they are.. every guide you've ever read on this site has gained the stat weights from running simulations on SimC. I assume they use one of the pre-gear built profiles on there in order to get a "general" setup. Weights (and even priorities) vary GREATLY from person to person based on the gear they are currently using and how many traits they have learned in their spec, and even what talents they have chosen..

In short.. sim your own character,preferably with the situation you yourself mostly are in (2 targets for a build that's always hitting 2 targets for example), and get your own custom weights that are fine tuned to yourself. Though know that the weights change all the time so sim every 1-3 pieces you change.

      So I've been playing around with SimC and every sim with Horn of Winter yields better DPS than Freezing Fog, between 9k and 11k more dps. What do you guys think? Is HoW better than FF without the legendary helm? Should FF be taken regardless?

      So here I am, consulting Icy Veins forums. I am a Frost Death Knight, with an iLevel of 885 that is REALLY struggling with my dps. I'm running a BoS build because it was recommended to my by other Frost Dks. I have done a ton of research about this issue to no avail and I really need some professional help. 
      Here's my armory and my charts for my last Heroic Nighthold with my guild

      Hey guys, I have all 6 tier items (heroic, some WF). My hands are 895, but got a 905 item from mythic chrono.
      Using
      ( Pawn: v1: "Blood": Class=DeathKnight, Spec=Blood, CritRating=4.57, HasteRating=7.57, MasteryRating=3.07, Versatility=6.07, Strength=9.07, Stamina=12.07 )
      (Bad I know, got the numbers from Noxxic, but just swapped mastery and crit around. Matches the balanced priority, been working for me so far lol). Not a bleeding edge raider.
      Current setup

      Proposed setup

       
      Did multiple AMR sims with both setups, and averaged it, and each time 4pc comes out a little ahead. Using Krosus as setup. 

      I'm thinking it;s the versatility on the tier hands that is making the difference, not so much the 25% chance at a rune?
      Thoughts, opinions, Thanks!
