I'm looking for the best builds per boss in NH.

I'm kind of just winging it atm.

Any help would be appreciated

 

The only legendary i have is KJBW

The best builds are somewhat reliant on whether you have your 2pc, since that makes Lonely Winter the go to. Bone Chilling is a decent contender before 2pc, but with it LW is solidly on top.

 

There really isn't a whole lot of switching around boss to boss when it comes to frost. Thermal Void is the go to for almost every scenario for the 100 tier, Incanters Flow is almost an auto take, Rune of Power is not great for frost since you're wasting time that could be spent generating or spending FoF charges dropping the runes and our damage is fairly evenly spread out over a very long cooldown window, not as easy to fit a bunch of damage into a 10 second window, and Mirrors is also weak in comparison.

 

The only 2 tiers which affect DPS that give much of a choice are Arctic Gale vs Unstable Magic and Splitting Ice vs Frozen Touch.

 

Arctic Gale is a good take if there will ever be multi target that survives the duration of the Blizzard, with a good chance of it staying inside the blizzard at all times, while Unstable is a rather minute (~1%-1.5%) single target bump, but entirely passive and if you cast no blizzards at all will benefit your damage (Krosus for example, where if the adds are alive for a whole blizzard, your raid is messing it up). Also if you have the Blizzard belt Arctic Gale is pretty much a must take.

 

Splitting Ice vs Frozen Touch is the other where you may switch off, Frozen Touch being stronger in a pure single target or multi target where the adds are never stacked, however the amount of FoF charges you will get over the course of the fight due to the talent is really not amazing, and if there is ever a chance that you can get a good couple Split lances, it may be worth it to just take Splitting, as it boosts damage of Lances by 5% as well as giving the cleave option.

      Guild: Dawn of the Dead | http://www.dotd.org   Faction: Horde | Server: Zul'jin (PvE) | Timezone: EST   Current Progression: 4/8M Uldir   We've been raiding max size raids continuously since WoW has been released and are the only guild to have done so here on Zul'jin. We have strong leadership, no drama, and plans to keep raiding for years to come. Unlike many guilds, we're not recruiting for the short term, and we don't over-recruit.   Website: www.dotd.org
        Raid Times: Our schedule is 8-11 EST Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.   Needs: We are a small guild, and we expect high attendance. As such, we recruit people to raid, and desire people who can step in and contribute immediately. We don’t recruit people to sit around, so all spots are for raiders who can expect to be in most every raid.   We are currently looking to add skilled and reliable:   Ranged DPS:
      High: Warlock
      Medium: Mage, S.Priest, Boomkin
      1 Healer:
      High: MW Monk
      *ALL exceptional applicants will be considered regardless of the class.   What we ask of you:   Effort: Not all applicants come from highly progressed guilds, and that’s okay, but it does mean that you need to be prepared. We recruit the player, not the gear, but we do ask that you have some current experience and be a minimum iLvl of 370. You need to have the best gear available to you, (BoE, Crafted) with gems and top end enchants. You also need to be able to display an understanding of your class mechanics, role in a raid, and ability to learn new fights.   Attitude: It’s a game. We play for fun. How you fit in with the guild is taken very seriously. We’re a bunch of mostly 18-30 guys and girls who have fun playing together. While we have a good time, we also know when it’s time to buckle down and work hard.   Skill: The best way to determine skill is to see you in a raid. Because we don’t wish to have anyone transfer that we’re not serious about, be able to express your knowledge of your class and why you’re an exceptional player who would be an asset and is worth a shot. Gear will come with time. Skill will not. Impress us with your knowledge of your class and gameplay mechanics. Feel free to share any logs, theorycrafting, or other work you've done.   Commitment: We make a commitment to you, and ask you to do the same to us. A raid takes a team of more than 20 individuals working together. We rely on you to show up to raids, research your class and new fights, respect your fellow players, and notify us when you are unavailable. You rely on us for gear, experience, and coordination. It's a large investment of our time to train and gear new players, and we ask the same investment on your part so that we can each benefit.   We have a variety of informational resources available to prospective applicants on our web site: http://www.dotd.org-- please refer to our "Applications" forum for detailed information. Also feel free to visit us on WoWProgresss for more information and kill videos! http://www.wowprogress.com/guild/us/...wn+of+the+Dead   Should you wish to speak to someone in-game, please don't hesitate to reach out to an officer directly, whisper Xanah (Xana#1662) or Jeare (Jeare#1759).   We look forward to hearing from you soon!
