Frost DPS - Help needed.

3 posts in this topic

Hello all,

This is my first post in this area of the forum and I was wondering if someone can help me.

I've recently started logging my encounters - starting with my guilds ToV HC run.

While I'm always usually in the top 2-5 people on the DPS meter during raids, the log I took for the ToV HC run show me to be in the lower percentiles for that fight for my gear level (879 equipped, 880 bagged). I'd appreciate it if someone could enlighten me and let me know if there is something wrong in my rotation? Anything is appreciated, I'd like to maximise what I can if there's more I can eek out of my spec!

Log: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/4p1dqz73WD86jnRL/#type=damage-done&source=5 (it's a live log so it'll be constantly updating while this run is going)

Log: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/68rytKvmMxH7RTkc#fight=17 (for some other information - here is my Kara clear for the week (with NB))

If any more information is required please let me know!

Thanks guys!

Just looking at this quick main problems I'm seeing is Icytalons uptime is kind of low could be increased. You had a lot of rime procs both get overlapped and expire, this is probably where a majority of your damage is being lost it does a lot of damage like serriously it's a 300% increase proc. There was a pretty decent amount of time over 2 runes meaning you weren't getting frozen pulse damage, try and stay at 2 or lower. 

 

New patch is coming tuesday though if you would like me to relook through logs again feel free to just post me with an updated log, make sure and try and find best talents ect, idk if 100% correct or not but i think BoS is going to be the best so major change to it.

Thanks for the reply, after spending numerous hours (when I should've been sleeping) reading logs of higher ranking players in my ilvl bracket I also noticed similar things: Icy Talons being down, Frozen Pulse not being utilised fully. 

Up until now I never actually knew much about weak auras so I personally never used them - but I can see I need to manage those uptimes better, so I made a weak aura for Icy Talons to try manage it's stacks and uptime - but it needs some tweaks before I'm happy.

I also changed my talents around, swapping Avalanche for Icecap for that style of fight, meaning more up time on PoF ideally (getting 4-5 off in a 3 minute fight vs 3 in 3 minutes) contributing to more overall damage thanks to Toravon's in theory as I saw alot of my counterparts had far more uptime on PoF compared to me (but up to 10% in places).

One question I do have though: should I be pooling runic power? I did a small test to see how it functions and if I can keep my runes down and only can Frost Strike to refresh IT I am pooling a tonne of RP - should I be expending it for when buff time is low or should I beat it down to around 35-40 so casting 2-3 more to create more damage and possibly trigger more runes for KM and Rime procs?

Thanks!

      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.
