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!

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!

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Hello there!

      <Shadow> on Argent Dawn has been going since 2009. We are a close-knit community and strongly believe in recruiting people who will fit in with us rather than just whoever is topping the meters. We also believe that having a busy RL life with job/family/social commitments and committing to Mythic raiding as a hobby we're all passionate about are not mutually exclusive. We are looking to bolster our line-up to push for Cutting Edge in Antorus.

      About us
       
      We progress raid Thursdays and Sundays, 20:00-23:00 and 19:30-22:30 respectively (all times server time)
      We have a non-mandatory farm raid Fridays at 20:30 that socials and alts are welcome to
      We use Discord for voice communication and have an active server to hang out, chat, and organise M+ runs
      We maintain a mature environment - having a laugh is great, but bullying, endless meme-spamming and the like are not welcome
      We believe in learning from your mistakes - you will never be yelled at, but you will be asked whether you know what you did wrong and how you can fix it
       

      What we expect from recruits
       
      Sign up to raids ahead of time and give us a heads-up in case of longer absences
      Be there 15 minutes before raid start and bring your own consumables as back-up to feasts and cauldrons
      Do your homework - research encounters thoroughly and understand them
      Understand and know how to play your class
      Have Discord installed and a working microphone, ready to speak when required but without cluttering up comms with chatter
      You don't need to grind to the point of burn-out, but keep up with AP traits and do M+ to hone your skills and supplement your gear
      Be a team player and bring a positive attitude. Wipes happen in Mythic. Constructive feedback is great, backseat raid leading is not.


      What we are currently looking for

      A rule that applies to all potential recruits is: We do not recruit for the bench, but we will always take the team that is most likely to defeat the boss and cannot promise everyone they will always be in for every fight. When things are equal in terms of performance and required composition, we much prefer to rotate people in and out over benching someone for an entire night.
      One Healer - Paladin preferred, but any class that isn't priest will be considered
      One Tank - Bear, Brewmaster or Blood DK
      Melee DPS - got one spot for a Rogue
      Ranged DPS - Boomkins, Shadow Priests, Warlocks and Hunters

      If this sounds like the guild for you, check us out at shadow-wow.enjin.com or contact the Co-GMs Alec#2922 and NevNev#2669 for more info!

      See you in Antorus!
