Frost DPS - Help needed.

3 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

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!

      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?

      Hello guys,
      I have been having trouble with my toon... For some reason my DPS outside of Metamorphosis is really, REALLY low. Like 400k whereas I'm overall 900iLevel.
      You can look up my Armory here:
      http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/emeriss/Xymeria/simple
      If the link does not work, please check me out Xymeria-Emeriss - Europe.
      I have all of the pieces the Top Demon hunters in Wowprogress do, except a little bit lower iLevel and maybe some improvements can be done to my Gloves and Boots, I hadn't had much luck with legendaries ( I have the defensive DH chest, Burning Fist Trinket and the last one I got is the Cascading Eyes ( Head ) - I don't have the Ring which EVERYONE BUT ME HAS....
      I'm having huge issues with generating enough fury to dish out enough DPS. I have enough Crit and Mastery, my haste is a little low, but not that much. 
      When I'm in Meta, Nemesis and Artifact are on.. I dish out around 1300. But without meta it's all downhill from there.
      Please give me some advise on how to improve my DPS.

      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

      Note: I do see that my Haste is incredibly high, I'm currently working to get the 4-piece tier gear.

      Hello there,
      I'm maining a Beast Mastery Hunter this expansion. I've always mained a healer previously so being (good at) DPS is a first for me. I feel like I've achieved as much as I can on my own wit. Hence why I would like to ask someone who's perhaps more seasoned in the class to take a look at my logs to see where there is still room for improvement.
      Here's my guild's most recent NH heroic clear, my toon's name is Aart:
      Skorpyron upto Elisandre Heroic: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/A41hWFH2qJXwL9pd
      Gul'dan Heroic (and Elisandre and Gul'dan Normal): https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/A8x6qWXCR4JHkGMh
      My armory: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/wildhammer/Aart/
      Many thanks if you've taken the time to read and help - I'd appreciate it a lot!
