Protectors:

Norushen:

Sha of Pride:

  • you should grip the big add spawning in the back of the room to your group
  • Use spell_shadow_demonicempathy.jpgDeath's Advance, if on prison duty
  • plenty of magic damage to soak with spell_shadow_antimagicshell.jpgAnti-Magic Shell

Galakras:

Iron Juggernaut:

Dark Shamans:

  • Slowing green adds: Use inv_glyph_majordeathknight.jpgGlyph of Death and Decay for additional slow/damage
  • You can try to spread your diseases to the adds altough it is kind of risky. Use spell_shadow_antimagicshell.jpgAnti-Magic Shell and be quick wink.png
  • If still having problems with the adds spell_frost_wisp.jpgChilblains can be chosen (ideal for frost, for unholy only if you manage to spread your diseases, see point above). But this reduces your mobility by not having spell_shadow_demonicempathy.jpgDeath's Advance, and you have to move a lot on this fight

Nazgrim:

  • ability_deathknight_asphixiate.jpgAsphyxiate is very useful for stunning adds, although you lose some of your mobility
  • ability_deathknight_aoedeathgrip.jpgGorefiend's Grasp is useful for quickly grouping the adds for AoE, or ability_deathknight_remorselesswinters2.Remorseless Winter for stunning. Especially towards the end, since there will be more adds present

Malkorok:

Spoils of Pandaria:

Thok:

Siegecrafter Blackfuse:

  • spell_shadow_antimagicshell.jpgAnti-Magic Shell will be your friend. You will get a lot of runic power by soaking the unavoidable ability_siege_engineer_overload.jpgOverload and prevent a lot of damage. Also useful if you have troubles dodging ability_siege_engineer_purification_beamMatter Purification Beam on the conveyor belt. Also keep in mind both glyphs. inv_glyph_majordeathknight.jpgGlyph of Anti-Magic Shell helps in soaking ability_siege_engineer_overload.jpgOverloadinv_glyph_majordeathknight.jpgGlyph of Regenerative Magic should be useful, if you need AMS on the belt.
  • Being on the belt, it is much easier to just run (instead of jump) into the tubes at the end of the belt. spell_shadow_demonicempathy.jpgDeath's Advance should give you enough flexibility
  • Taking spell_shadow_contagion.jpgUnholy Blight as a talent choice is advisable, especially if being on belt business due to more frequent disease applications needed

/edit: Oh, thought you would copy that and replace the spells with nice links. wink.png

Since you just linked it, I edited in the spells myself and corrected some typos smile.png

Thanks for editing. I don't have the time to copy/paste/edit for all the threads, so I decided that for T16, I'd just link to the contributions. It's better than eventually falling behind and not being motivated anymore to keep things updated.

Malkorok

 

Pop army pre-pull and when the Ancient Miasma is applied, immediately Death Pact to get a great boost to the shield right from the start.

Just putting in that, using spell_holy_consumemagic.jpgDark Simulacrum on Wavebinder Kardris in the Dark Shaman encounter will steal spell_frost_frostshock.jpgFroststorm Bolt. This scales with frost DK mastery and can crit in excess of 1m damage easily. Using the glyph is recommended to lower the CD.

For DPS and Tanking.

 

Iron Juggernaut (HC):

- You can use Anti-Magic Zone on the Shock Pulse to reduce damage taken to raid. Preferably used on the first.

- You can use Anti-Magic Shell with glyph to compleetly soak a Shock Pulse

- Recommended to use Lichborne + Anit Magic Shell (glyphed) on last Shock Pulse to quickly heal yourself and run back to the boss. (Only works if you don't use Anti-Magic Zone)

 

Kor'kron Dark Shaman (HC):

-You can use Anti-Magic Zone to further reduce the damage taken from Falling Ash.

 

Malkorok (HC) 10-man:

- Soak the puddles with AMS up for instant full runic power, use Anti-Magic Shell glyph.

 

Thok (HC):

- Help out the tank on the 5th stack of the Frost breath with Anti-Magic Zone to reduce the damage taken from the breath right before freezing.

- If you're tanking you can compleetly soak a Poison/Fire/Frost breath with Anti-Magic Shell (Must be using the anti-magic shell glyph) you'll be able to cheese a stack of the tank debuff and sometimes even resetting the stacks if timed perfectly.

- When the tank gets frozen use Howling Blast/Death Coil to get him out faster.

 

Siegecrafter HC:

-Use AMZ during the empowered magnet phase to reduce dmg taken, preferably ontop of the tanks/melee to help out the healers.

-Use AMZ to reduce the damage taken from the shockpulse from the Shredder.

 

Klaxxi HC:

- Aim can be soaked compleetly with Purgatory, make sure to have a pet sac and healthstone ready to heal you back up.

-AMZ is extreemly usefull to help reduce damage taken by the fiery edge debuff.

-Anti Magic Shell will absorb a whole fiery edge debuff if you shift presence to blood together with Shifting presence glyph and anti magic shell glyph.

 

 

Garrosh Normal:

-The Whirling Corruption can be compleetly soaked with AMS if you're using the glyph and shit pressence.

      Hey as the title says just want someone to critique me and point out areas I can improve at. I'm relatively new to reading logs so I don't quite know where to dig up all the info or what I'm looking at sometimes.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.

      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletags: Vims#21684 Azkey#21565
      To apply please visit our guild website: http://asylum-tn.enjin.com/recruitment

      Druid: Balance.
      Hunter: BM.
      Mage: Frost.

      Any and all applications will be considered.

      Okay, so i got a 3rd legendary for my frost mage, Sephuz's Secret, the issue is that I have the crafted legendary shoulders and Lady Vashj's gloves equipped. My stats: Crit 33%, Haste 23%, Mastery 32%, and Vers 4%. When I equip the ring, my crit and haste bump quite a bit up, and i lose a bit of mastery (because the gloves i use as a replacement have crit and haste too). Should I keep gloves on for their equip bonus, or should i replace them with Sephuz's for the stats and ilvl increase? I know my crit will be above the soft cap with ring, but i can swap gems and enchants for haste ones as noted on the guide.
      ~Thanks, Underclocked

      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?

      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.
