Frost Dps help

Recommended Posts

Hiya!

Can someone tell me what i'm doing wrong with my frostmage, since it feels like I'm underperforming compared to other guys with the same ilvl.

https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/pMdCBwHG6mQb712z This is a normal pug run I did yesterday.

https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/draenor/blastgasm link to my armory.

 

Edit: Will add a bit more info now since I was in a hurry when i wrote this.

 

I know i dont have the optimal legendaries. Only got 2 to drop on my mage. The gloves and the waist. During this normal run i probably had the wrong talent setup for some fights (arctic gale on tichondrius etc.). The question is, what can i improve? Do i need to get Better legendaries or is My rotation slightly off?

I have just skimmed through the logs quickly and i dont really see you doing alot of wrong things. Your dps is fine considering your legendaries, stats and gear.

Your missing the good legendaries as you already stated, which is quite a dps gain.

Your stats could be shifted a bit, try to get even closer to 33% crit so all of your FoF Ice Lances are a guaranteed crit. Easiest way is to just sim yourself, either with SimulationCraft or via Raidbots.

The reason why mages around your ilvl is doing "better" is because most of them have already played Legion for some time and have the good legendaries and also either 2/4 set from Antorus or 2/4 set from ToS or a mix between these.

 

Tl;dr: Sim yourself, and pray to rngsus for good legendaries and set pieces. :)

Talent choice seems to be an issue for you. Using Arctic Gale but never casting Blizzard is just a straight DPS loss compared to using another talent. Take Unstable Magic instead.

Also, you overwrite Brain Freeze procs on almost every fight. Don't cast something that can generate a proc if you have one and aren't spending it immediately.

      Hi everyone. So I've read the guide on fire mage here on Icy-veins and got some questions related to single target rotation. First I'd like to ask about the meteor. It is mentioned that meteor should be used with Rune of Power which is fairly easy to do since Rune of Power is always ready when Metor is off cooldown. However It's also mentioned that Meteor should always be available when Combustion comes off cooldown. Now Combustion has a 2 min cooldown and meteor has 45 sec cooldown. I can use meteor twice while Combustion is on cooldown. However If I use Meteor twice , It is on cooldown when Combustion is ready. Should I wait for Combustion and not cast Meteor on the second time until Combustion is ready?
      Second what I'd like to ask is about Combustion after the opener. Its mentioned that I need a hot streak before I pop It. I fish for Pyros by casting Fireball until I get a crit and then use Fire Blast. However when I get an Hot streak I'm already mid-casting Fireball. Should I cancel the cast and cast Rune of Power or should I let that Fireball hit and immediately after start casting Rune of Power?
      It's also mentioned that I need to have a Fire Blast charge always ready before going in Combustion phase. Should I save up a charge and ignore the Heating Ups I get regardless and hope for Fireball to crit twice or basically wait for Fire Blast to get another charge?
      Thanks 🙂

      I'm new to using icy-veins, and I cannot seem to get used to navigating the WoW class guides. Why is stat info the 13th section of the guides, but max level content 6th through 12th? Where do I find comparisons between specs?
