Since we are no longer using Hailstorm, do we still incorporate frostbrand in the rotation?

No, frostbrand would only put a slow on your attacked target so their is no reason to unless you actually do want to slow it down. Running ancestral swiftness, the only buffs you keep up are flametongue and landslide.

If you're not using Hailstorm, then Frostbrand is basically just a ranged version of Arms Warrior's Hamstring. It does very little damage on its own, and it is not worth spending the resources. I wouldn't put Hailstorm in the toilet just yet, though. Let's see the build actually go live, and experiment with the new 7.1.5 Enhancement in different situations before learning a whole new rotation from scratch. It's not just the numbers that make the current "cookie cutter" Enhancement build so great - it's also the smooth rotation, the synergy between the artifact abilities, legendaries, and certain trinkets that make it work so well. If the other builds are close in power but are clunky to use, why would you choose them?

OK, so Hailstorm is indeed pretty weak now at least on single target. I didn't try it out in a dungeon yet, but on a raid dummy with the 7.1 standard build, I was sustaining about 20% below where I was before. That obviously isn't acceptable in any way. I toyed around with the new builds and settled on Windsong, Ancestral Swiftness, Tempest and Fury of Air. This is a very well balanced build, because the first two talents generate tons of extra Maelstrom and the other two capitalize on that increased generation.

In dungeons, where I can capitalize on the buffed Spiritual Journey legendary as well as Emalon's Charged Core, I presume this will also be a very strong based on how the abilities seem to be tuned.

There is really no need for Frostbrand since Fury of Air has an AoE snare on it. Even if the enemy is behind you it is still getting snared.

      I was recently asked to start playing enhance for my guild. So nothing else to do than grabbing the good ol' hammers and start swinging. I've read the guides here on IV, watched a few videos on Youtube and been on and off on the enhance discord.  I thought I got the hang of it, felt pretty comfortabel doing a few bosses but when I skimmed through  our loggs from a few of the bosses I noticed that my preformance is more or less  garbage.
      I decided to test my luck here. I was hoping that someone could analyze my loggs and give me a few pointers on what and what not to do.
      I would also appreciate  a few tips and trix about how to start analyzing my preformance myself so I dont have to turn back here as soon as the RNG gods are not with me.
      Here is the log I was refering to:
      And here is my armoy:
      In advance I apologize for any misspelling and other nonsense that might confuse you. I should point out that English is not my main language.
      If you need any other basic information in order to help me just give me a shout and I will comply.

      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!

      Im having wierd issue with Opportunity skill. It happens everytime I  have 5cp+ and  Opportunity proc.

      What Im doing is casting Run Through with 5cp+, note that I have Opportunity proc, after using Run Through my Ruthlessness skill refounds 2cp so Im using free Pistol Shot with Opportunity procs. Problem is IM NOT GETTING 3rd combo point. 

      Anyone having simmilar issue  ?  Cant find any informations.

      I have one few questions concerning fury rotation:
      1. Should I use bloodbath only with Battle Cry?
      2. Should I use Rampage immediately after it is available or should I always wait for Frothing Berserker?
      3. During Enrage time, should I spam raging blow or prioritize bloodthirst then raging blow?
      4. Is CoF ilvl860 better then nightmare egg ilvl940?
      Best regards

      Hello. I'm having some problems with DK rotation after starting it. I realize that in the beginning, procs are many. But through the middle of the fight, I begin to notice that everything slows down, including the return of runes and loss of Runic Power. Sometimes I do not own a rune, and I have a lot of Runic Power. But if I spend it, the runes are still coming back, and I have nothing to beat. Please help me. This is normal? Should I use FS only when I'm near overcap? Should I wait patiently for the runes to renegate without hitting FS? I have 25% Acceleration, 27% Critical and 42% Mastery. Thank you in advance.
