Hi guys,

I have a question about Death Knights spec usefull for SoO. I know that Unholy have some good AOE+SIngle Target DPS, DW frost has great AOE and Burst but lacks in regular dps and 2H frost is good in single target. But i was thinking about procs of Fusion Power Core trinket, Legendary meta gem and Legendary cloak procs. Isnt most suitable for these things DW frost thx to 2 weapons? I know in SoO is only Galakras, Hellscream,Spoils and Nazgrim suitable for AOE dps but is it worth it? This is my char http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/drakthul/Arcticwolf/advanced and i have two upgraded one handed weapons in bank and i dont know what to do. If i should keep 2H Frost and Unholy spec or just reforge everything and swap to DW frost.

From whatever I have read here and on EJ, the Fusion Core trink is pretty weak except on some fights like the ones you have mentioned. In fact, Mendenbarr ranks even the LFR/Flex versions of some of the other trinkets higher. Of course you can only play with the loot that you get, but something to be aware of.

Overall, I believe DW is doing pretty well even in ST fights. I am waiting for a good 1h to drop to switch back from 2h. If you have similar iLvl weapons, I guess it would come down to if you have preference for one playstyle over the other.

Depending on what your 2H weapon is and which stat priority you are using, you could always tweak your gear and make it so you are hit/exp cap'd for both DW and 2H Frost.

In 5.4, dual wield Frost is good for all fights, not just AoE, and dominates the top of the WoL parses. Some fights Unholy does better but it's usually not a large difference.

      Hey guys,

      I'd appreciate if you could have a look at my trinket sims. I'm a little bit confused about the results, so maybe you could tell me if it seems correct?

      For BoS people say strength > all, but SC reccommends me 2 non strength trinkets. 
      For ST it's Faulty Countermeasure (900) and Unstable Arcanocrystal (865).
      For MT Horn of Valor (865) and Unstable Arcanocrystal (865).

      None of them has strength, could that really be the right choice for BoS?
      I also have Convergence of Fates (875), which is not reccommended as top choice, but i know Simcraft undervalues it a little bit - at least that's what i've heard.

      I run mostly M+ and only 1 day per week Nighthold, so my thoughts were to use the following combinations:
      For M+ Arcanocrystal (865) / Countermeasure (900) with tyrannical affix and Arcanocrystal (865) / Horn (865) for other trash affixes.
      For raiding i thought Countermeasure (900) / CoF (875) would be best, because CoF should be more valuable in longer fights.

      What do you think?

      (Results are in german... but i hope most of the trinket names are still understandable. Currently equipped is FC/IA.)

      Thanks in advance!

      Hey all. 
      I've been beating my head against the wall in regards to my DPS.

      I'm very ashamed actually. In the past I have pulled *What I thought was very good numbers* only to see that my DPS is in constant decline. I understand most people are going Frost, but I have invested so much time into Unholy, to switch now would only increase my agitation. I'm no longer a clicker, that's a plus! 
      I have my two piece currently. Currently on Heroic content and I'm needing some advice. Rotation is pretty common with what's suggested. We have a few DK's in our raid group, most of them Frost with another Unholy, who COMPLETELY blows me out of the water. Maybe it's because I'm stuck with Eye Of Command and on multi-add boss fights, it's useless. Help me fellow DK's. I would SO appreciate it.

      Hey folks,
      I play frost since TBC and since i got my hands on my 3rd legendary and 2 part t19 bonus i struggle with my current build. Maybe you can enlight me :). Here we go:
      I am at an avg gs of 888 with the following stats (unbuffed):
      30% crit
      20% haste
      31% mastery
      3% versatility
      I have the Bracers, cape and belt legendarys at my proposal, currently running with bracers + belt.
      I used to play the "normal" OBRA Build (Icy talons, Frozen Pulse, Runic Attenuation and Glacial Advance)  and did quite well. Since i got my 2 part t19 bonus i am somewhat ressource overcapped and/or GCD limited. Thats why i started tinkering around with my talents.
      Currently i play around with:
      Murderous Efficiency
      Gathering Storm
      Freezing Fog

      Instead of the "normal" OBRA build. I am still not sure if this build yields better dps or not for me. Depending on proc luck i am still overcapped with ressources some times as well as ressource starved at other times cuz of the missing Runic Attenuation talent.
       
      What do you guys think? I tried the BoS build as well but i absolutely HATE its "playstyle". can't get used to that 2 min cooldown. Most of the time I use it in a raid i get some nasty debuff and have to run -> dropping BoS xD. In mythic+ i don't like it as well because it falls off after one pack and takes 2-3 packs until its ready again...
       
      And the last question:
      would you prefere a 880 Chest + 880 trinket (that egg thing with the poor haste proc) over Nightbane Chest at 875 alongside with the eye of command at 860?

      Hi!
      I'm reviewing some of my logs from previous raids, and am wondering how you guys rate the importance of Gathering Storm, and whether you actively try to only have 3 runes regenerating or if you let Gathering Storm just take a back seat and don't focus on it.
      From some research I found that it does have a massive effect on the dps, when successfully extending your Gathering Storm from 10 stacks to a re-cast which refreshes the duration with 10 stacks it can have a huge impact as shown in the below log. (Check Buff Uptimes)

      Please let me know if you've done any personal research and any insight. :)
