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.

      Hi everyone, I'm wondering if you could help me to improve my dps as a fury warrior, I've been using an addon to help me with my rotation  (link is below) though I don't think it's doing me any good now.
      https://wago.io/E1uzBOfaz (rotation helper link)
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/draenor/calux (this is me link :D)
      Any help would be greatly appreciated but please keep the replies helpful, not looking for people who want to reply telling me how bad I am as I already know I'm bad and that's why I'm asking on here xD
      If you need anything else from me then please ask, I really need to start getting that dps up xD
      Thank you for reading this and I hope you have a nice day.

      Hey guys, i'm coming to all my fellow shamans as a last resort, i don't seem to understand were I've gone wrong. I've been maining my Ele Shaman for several months now, and I've followed every instruction with guides. My stat priority is on point, my gear considerably good. (942) at the moment. I've tried every build with multiple bosses etc. My simulator show i should be nearing 2M dps on fights. Yet when i'm fighting i'm around 850k. I don't know if this is because of all the movements, but like i mentioned above I've tried Ice fury build for movement fights. When i'm practicing and testing rotations on dummy's my numbers seem, to be ok. Does anyone have tricks, tips, or pointers on what'll take to achieve the damage i need. I watch others with same builds, with less gear pulling great numbers. I know elemental isn't the best for Single Target, but my last fight on maiden i pulled 700k DPS :( !!!! As far as AOE, no problem there. Numbers are outstanding on trash etc. Thanks for taking the time to ready this.

      Hi and, first of all, thanks for your time. 
      I´m back to WoW after around 3 years, and I´m feeling quite confused yet. My main is a Hunter. I left it during WoD as a BM. Now I´m back, still with WoD expansion, and I feel the class has changed a LOT. No traps, quite a different composition, etc. 
      I´d like some help in order to set my talents and rotations. My intention atm, as lvl 100, is to finish questing Draenor (still quite a bit to do here) and then buy Legion and try to level up before the expansion comes. I like soloing (I guess BM should be my choice, but I´m here to hear your opinions!!) and I´ll try to avoid skipping content. I´m not in a hurry, just want to enjoy the whole lore-and-questing all the way up.
      Thanks again for your help!!!!

      I need guidance!
      I'm a returning player from the MoP era, I've played throughout TBC and beyond and currently I'm a iLvl 890 Mage. I haven't played any of Legion launch content, no 7.1/7.2 content when I first started playing again. Currently I've been doing all of the broken isles quests, currently on the last which is Suramar and my entire Broken Isles Rep standing is at Honoured across the board at this moment in time (btw this rep wall for flying is a joke).
      So here I am questing, doing dungeons and LFR. Multi-tasking multiple things, I've just received the last follower for the class hall quests, it's so overwhelming and I have no idea what I need to do to make sure I'm not missing out any tasty loot because I'm an avid completionist and wouldn't want to miss a mount or title or anything haha! But like I said, I'm so very overwhelmed by everything and I don't want to be doing things that I don't really need to do unless I get something shiny. Am I gonna be screwed if I skip the Broken Shore? Do i just go straight into argus? I love leveling alt characters but if i do all this, and have to do it again on an alt, I would be so angry. Obviously the Legion flying will benefit the alt, but if I can just skip to Argus(?), is it really worth it? Like jump straight into argus if its not gonna damage my alt toons chances of getting gear? WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING AND WHAT AM I WASTING MY TIME ON? - is the question I'm asking here. I hate missing a trick, please halp ! D;

      So, I'm currently maining Blood DK and that's the spec that I've gotten my 4 legends on. I do occasionally use UH and was wondering which of my legends would be most effective for it. Just a foreword, all of the gear that the legends replace is about equal; all 915-920 and don't cause any major stat changes so its not like using one legend over another causes me to use a bad piece. I have Soul of the Deathlord, which is the one I use most on UH, and I have  Shackles of Bryndaor, Archimonde's Hatred Reborn, and Prydaz, Xavaric's Magnum Opus. Does the Shackles passive work on UH, if so, could that be a better boost for Val'kyr[Dark Arbiter Talent] (b/c you can cycle more RP)? Other than that I'm just wondering which out weighs the other, STR or the secondaries?
      Edit: and just in case it makes a difference, my talent build is; http://www.wowhead.com/talent-calc/death-knight/unholy/c75z
