Hello There!

Im new to the game (Starting in Legion) and frost DK overall, and when i look at my dps i am not satisfied i feel like im really low overall (im aware of it)

Amory: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/kazzak/Lunasaphira/advanced

Im doing my best to maintain this Rotation:
Howling blast, pillar of frost (horn of valor)  remorseless winter, (keeping it on cooldown) obliterate,Obliterate, if enough runic power and runes, then breath - spam obliterate and when rime procs, howling blast.  Hungering rune weapon - when runic power goes low. often fail by using hungering to soon(two at the same or close to eachother time) or to late- breath runs out.sindra, depening on fight, if i think i can use it twice or not. keep using oblit, and freezing when procs.

BoS Spec. (i was using Freezing fog instead of horn of winter, i have simmed it to do a little bit less, but on some aoe i felt like it was nice to not have an extra button to press)

Logs:  https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/tmPGYV4k6g7BWzbw#

(im aware of not using pre pots and flask on some fights, but my dps should be higher nomatter what)

I was comparing myself to the other DK in the raid, and i was not satisfied with my own perfomance
(Im aware of i am supposed to link his armory but his character doesn't come up)

2nd question: Im aware of my legendaries being really good, i have just looted Kil'jaedens burning wish, should i replace any legendaries for the trinket?

h4lp.

Regards,

Lunasaphira

Alright so looking at Trilliax. You had a rather long period of time where you sat on a rime proc, it may have expired. I'm not really sure why but there is a part where you havea killing machine proc for like 30 seconds which is a huge dps loss. I'm not really sure why you didn't use HRW during your breath of sindragosa you only had a 7% up time. And you only had 1 cast of Remorseless winter.

what i'm assuming your problem is it seems you're spamming howling blast and not obliterate. Despite the adds on that fight it's a single target fight and you should be mainly obliterating, unless you have a rime proc of course. Mark of the Hidden Sytr isn't the best enchant for neck I would suggest mark of the claw.

Now that you have T19 x 2 I would switch to Freezing Fog permanently. (if you had the helm, you should have been on it beforehand)

Only the helm and bracers are a DPS improvement over the waist, but don't drop the waist until you have Convergence trinket.

Seal is best legendary for BoS and will only be more valuable with T20. Especially as the helm is getting lined up for a nerf.

You might need some Weak Aura's to help you track timers for BoS and for your other bits as well.

 

HAve a look at this and find one that you like and suits you.

Ring and Waist are BiS.

After that helm then bracers.

Posted Theorycrafts on YouTube, you should watch that ;)

rofl, I'm here to help the OP with current patch, I don't care what your 7.2 theorycraft is, it's still subject to heavy change and pretty worthless here.

Not doing great with first impressions dude.... spam and then arrogance.

Well you said Waist and Ring are BiS which in 7.2 will be true.. until then it's Helm and Ring for 7.1.5.

 

I think thats where a lot of sim/theorycrafting fails in a big way, raw numbers are one thing but the simple facts are:

The vast majority of ST top parses use the helm and it's even more pronounced for AoE fights (understandable).

The reality of the T19 x 4 synergy with helm is that Rime is a way to keep BoS going at range/during movement phases AND is using spare GCDs that would otherwise naturally go to FS so it makes eating those procs even more valuable and therefore increases the value of the helm as a secondary effect.

Do you have a theorycraft about that?

Made my own and came to another result than you.

The bonus damage (and RP from Rime) from the helm is more consistent and for BoS extension is far more reliable usage of that GCD than to squeeze what 'could' be risky extra Obliterates that generate zero runes from either waist proc or ME.

I know that you haven't suggested using Obliterate over Rime, that's not my point... the weight I'm adding is that with Rime gaining so much importance from T19 x 4 it's hard to imagine a situation where the waist comes out on top due to the RNG element and in 7.2 the reduction in HRW/ERW cooldown will just mean a semi-return to the situation prior to T19 x 4 where you need the extra runes for RP either from the waist or from Horn of Winter but just less so.

I'd say on that basis 7.2 (as it stands) will be Ring > Waist/Bracers > Helm.

Mainly because the T20 and trait changes mean that you can spec Icecap again if you wish.. at least it's nearer the table (Runefrost is looking more attractive now that PTR has it at +40% when maxed out).

Lining up Pillar + ERW (+20% dmg) x 2 with reduced CD + Icecap may even keep some of the hybrid builds in touch but that remains to be seen.

      Hey guys,
      I'm new to playing affliction lock and ranged DPS in general really. Can someone help me see why my DPS isn't where it should be? I've changed my stats around and have been playing with my legendaries and rotation but I can't seem to improve. If someone has some ideas it would be much appreciated.

      Hello, 
      I am concerned that I am severely under performing as a fury warrior. I can manage to parse typically in the 80s for almost every fight in heroic ToS with a few exceptions: Mistress, Host, Avatar. I'm currently 933 equipped and I'm not at all concerned about my stats... I know I should and could be parsing in the 90s. But I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. 
       
      My opener looks something like this: Charge, Pop Moonglaives trinket, Pop all CDS, Raging Blow, Oden's Fury, Rampage, then start normal priority rotation: Enraged RB>100 rage Rampage>RB>BT>FS. 
       
      I have recently discovered that I have been doing my execute phase entirely wrong. I just went and tried first two bosses of heroic ToS again. Parses went up slightly... Goroth: 83->89, Inquis:84->90 but still not where I need to be. 
      Another think I'd like to mention is that I try to prioritize Enraged RB @100 rage before hitting rampage. According to Kelade (one of top fury warriors in US), this is 100k dps difference. Although at times I find myself in an awkward situation where I'm at 100 rage with RB on CD and I literally have to wait a whole global to hit it... I'd like to know how to make that stop lol. 
       
      Last issue I'd like to bring up is this: Most of the time not all my CDs will line up perfectly together... BC, glaives, OF will be up but Avatar will be down. I'm slightly confused about when to use All/some of my cds... especially on fights like heroic KJ. Fights like Harj and Miss I'm confused about if I should hold all my cds for adds or blow them in the beginning along with prepot... I feel like prepot is a total waste without cds...
       
      Below you will find the link to my armory and logs. Please Help me. I need to be parsing much higher than I am. My guild is doing mythic and I don't want to be the one holding us back.

      I've been playing a hunter for as long as I've been playing this game.  And for the first time in raiding, I feel like I am not doing my best and I cannot figure out why. I look at second by second rotations of top parsing hunters. In the past I was the one helping others out and writing small guides on forums...now I'm the one asking for help. 
      Here is a link to Goroth Mythic (my hunter's name is Mezäsu):
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/KjRvcMqbYGrp16Bt#fight=3
      I am very open to criticism and any help anyone has to offer.
      I tried going into the Discord to ask for help there but was not able to get a word in (as the helpers were busy with other people). Hoping I may have better luck here.

      Hello! Just another desperate warrior, seeking to improve in any possible way!
      Im Seagaard, from Ravencrest: https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/ravencrest/seagaard
      Im struggling doing as much DPS as i would want, and i am looking into possible changes. I know a 4 set bonus will be an obvious improvement, but i just dont think that is the only thing that makes my dps lack. 
      Here is a log of me wiping (alot) with my guild on Avatar.  https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/K6XLCHaAvZ2r7G1y#fight=3&view=analytical&type=damage-done&source=1
      I know its not much, but there is a couple of good tries in there. 
      Any help or criticism is appreciated :)

      Hello there,

      I am trying to find a character that suits me and 'till now i didn't find it..
      I have a Paladin level 110, a Rogue, DH, Warrior and a Druid. I really enjoyed to play Prot. Paladin but i was overwhelmed with all the knowledge i need to know for raids.I have to say that this is the class that i played the most. I have to say that i usually play in weekends and sometimes in week days.
      I enjoyed playing warrior in PVP but, that was it, nothing else..

      Two days ago i just got my Druid level 110 and played as Feral (with the intention to play Resto or Guard 'cause i want to be a healer and/or a tank but i found the rotations a little off for me..)

      Anyway, my question is, what should i play? I was thinking about a Disc Priest or a Ench/Resto Shaman or a Brew/Mist Monk. I just can't decide what i should play and unfortunately i have to level them from scratch..

      Any advice ?

      I really need a new perspective 'bout what i should play :)

      Thanks!
