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.

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      Hello,
      I seem to do very little damage on my opener and then following it up later.
      Here are my logs https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/9gqQaXwfmFGzH6Dy#fight=25&type=summary
      My armory https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/ravencrest/fettucini 
      I'm curious whether this is just bad playing or a lack of gear.

      Hello all! I figured i'd make this thread to get some up to date information on the AOE rotation for unholy.  Currently i'm 935 ilvl, and I run Incstructor's fourth lesson and Soul. (For lack of a better option.) However it is my understanding that these two legendaries make for the strongest aoe rotation. Is this true?

       That is my first question. My second is what is the priority for aoe when running these two. Is it to wait for defile to drop, then festering wound a target a couple times, then Scourge Strike? Or is the priority to just put Wounds on then pop them asap, dropping the defile whenever it's available. Typically I wait for defile before I start building Wounds, but given the soul and the extra talent, i suspect it's better to just aoe without Defile if it's unavailable or perhaps just better to rarely spend runes on defile? Curious as to your thoughts!

      Like the title says, I am just seeking some extra help on how I can improve my performance. I dont feel like my dps is lacking but think it could be better.

      Side note: When I have Icy Veins + BL up I catch myself overriding FOF or BF procs because its not registering my keypresses fast enough. Anyone else run into this issue?
