[Frost] Low DPS - What am I missing?

5 posts in this topic

Evening fellow spell chuckers!

Logs (Entire HC Farm Raid)

https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/RPZK8MngjtWTAzry#boss=-2&difficulty=0&type=damage-done&source=2

- Armoury Link

https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/argent-dawn/arcere

- Rotation

Icy Veins recommended (Glacial Spike). Talents as seen in Armoury.

- Issue

Disparity between fights, parsing blue on some and green on others and general underperformance DPS-wise.

Not very talented with Logs Analysis I will be honest, but I have oftentimes fewer casts which could be attributed to moving too much/panicking during mechanics and sometimes the spells appear to not hit as hard by average.

Some suspect some fights hold my lower than normal FPS as a partial contributor to my low DPS, but I am certain it's purely a rotational/skill combination error on my part, or not utilizing my tools as I should.

I run Shard of Exodar and Sephuz as it is the best combination according to SimCraft and I have optimized the gear with what I have using the same tool.

Shattercapped (by far, a little too far) and Haste approx 35%.

 

Please send help, as I am breaking my brain with what I am doing wrong! 

 

Thank you in advance!

Ran your Goroth log through WoWAnalyzer. It's not a perfect tool, but please check out the recommendations. They give you a few areas to work on:

  • You cast Ice Lance 6 times (17.14%) without Shatter. Make sure that you are only casting Ice Lance when the target has Winter's Chill (or other Shatter effects), if you have a Fingers of Frost proc, or if you are moving and you cant cast anything else.

    17.14% missed (<10.00% is recommended)

  • You cast Flurry without Brain Freeze 1 times. You should never hard cast Flurry.

    1 casts (Casting none is recommended)

  • You failed to Ice Lance into 4 Winter's Chill (1.5 missed per minute). Make sure you cast Ice Lance after each Flurry to benefit from Shatter.

    4 Winter's Chill not shattered with Ice Lance (0 is recommended)

  • You failed to Frostbolt, Glacial Spike, or Ebonbolt into 3 Winter's Chill (1.1 missed per minute). Make sure you hard cast just before each instant Flurry to benefit from Shatter.

    3 Winter's Chill not shattered with Frostbolt, Glacial Spike, or Ebonbolt (0 is recommended)

  • Try to cast Ebonbolt more often.

    3 out of 4 possible casts; 83.46% cast efficiency (>90.00% is recommended)

Just a couple of things: Gear overall seems fine. Stats look good. However, any reason why you chose those two legos? Shard is perfect, but I would highly recommend Mag's bracers. It's a huge dps increase over your other ring. Only other issue I see is are trinkets. Bonus roll on Mistress / Sisters as often as possible. They drop your 2 bis trinkets. You should at least have had one drop by now.

Have you considered TV instead of glacial spike? I've ran GS several times and TV just feels better for me. You might enjoy it more and notice a pretty big dps increase. That said, legos and trinkets are your only issues from gear.

Edit: No idea why simcraft is telling you to run the two rings. They are definitely not BIS option together. Shard is, and your other should either be the bracers or helm. Just ran you through AMR and its showing just about any other lego is siming better than sephuz for you.

Could be that he has miscalculated - Sephuz is incredibly powerful, even BiS, if you can proc it (Host, Sassz'ine).

      Hey everyone,
      So, I think my problem is my gear as I have been trying to rack my brain on why my dps is not that great in raids. Some of it I admit is probably not sticking 100% to my rotation, but any help/suggestions would definitely be appreciated.
      You can find the analyzer for the most recent log here: https://wowanalyzer.com/report/4K3dCR86gfMv2Njt/2-LFR+Antoran+High+Command/Darkbriar
       
      Thanks in advance! 😎

      SERVER: Illidan
      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time.
      PROGRESSION: 2/11M
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING*
      Tank All DPS (Healer offspec preferred but not required) Possibly accepting other roles! ABOUT US
      Now recruiting for BFA!
      Currently looking for skilled and laid back Tank & DPS for the upcoming expansion.
      We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out. 
      Fun guild events are scheduled often!
      Overall, we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
      GOALS FOR BFA
      In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic. 
      This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.) 
      SCHEDULE UNTIL BFA**
      Fridays currently mandatory for core raiders for a partial Heroic clear.
      Sundays reserved for non-mandatory misc WoW activities (M+, leveling alts for BFA etc.) or other non-WoW related events.
      If ilvl is high enough, you can join for Friday (950+) and Sunday on any character, not just the one you want to play in BFA.
                *The class you play in BFA can be different from what you play now; we will be flexible until the expansion hits.
                **Schedule subject to changes.
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW
      Make sure to add me on Battle.net and/or fill out our short 6 question app to join us. We look forward to speaking with you!
      Start the app here!

      Hi all,
      Im not sure where to post this but im hoping someone can help or at least point me in the right direction.
      TL;DR - My DPS is awful and i want to increase it
      I played fire & frost spec back in cata upto 85 and have recently got back into WoW again and finally realised what people talk about when they play "end game" i wish id known about raiding sooner!
      However, My DPS isnt great at all im eq 959 ilvl but my DPS comes out as low as 8-900 sometimes or i can hold a steady 1.1-1.2M. Simc comes out around 1.7M (obviously in a perfect world) but i still feel im doing something wrong.
      Ive watched videos, read forums and im sure my rotation is right. Im using Flask, Food and Runes and Pre-potting. I have some logs here of garothi.
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/XRqCaL6jFVpW9MnG#fight=5&type=summary&source=23&view=events
      and this is my Raider.io - https://raider.io/characters/eu/twisting-nether/Buksh
      Not sure if ive posted this in the right place OR if ive given enough info to help. but anything would be hugely appreciated.
