Hey guys,

 

I have some questions. Sice 5.2 I´ve been playing frost. I feel confident while playing my mage, damage and DPS seems to be good, but I´ve got the feeling that there is more to " squeeze " out smile.png

DPS Raid: About 220K up to 240K

DPS dummy in Stormwind: 160K up to 170K unbuffed

 

First of all, I red that you shouldn´t have more than 50% haste ( raidbuffed ). Is that true? Currently I´m having about 49,5% haste raidbuffed. Or ist that way to much ? biggrin.png

Stats priority looks like this for me:

Haste ( up to 50% raidbuffed ) > Int > Mastery > Crit .... should I change anything?

 

Equip, enchantments, gems: http://eu.battle.net/wow/de/character/gilneas/Tobapar/simple

 

 

Yeah, i know, combat logs are great, but let´s do it step by step. Combat logs will come on wednesday, have to figure out how it works ^^

First have a look on equip, gems etc...

 

Tanks to all of you who are helping me smile.png

I just have to say, I find your talent choices to be...strange, for frost mage raiding. Frost Bomb is only advised if you are spending the majority of a fight fighting 6+ enemies stacked together. Knowing which bomb to use on which fight will get you a bit more dps, if you play it correctly. Presence of Mind isn't really worth it for Frost, you are better off with Ice Floes or Blazing Speed, as they make movement easier. Cold Snap has it's uses, but generally speaking, Greater Invisibility is the recommended talent, though that is purely survivability, which has little impact on your dps. Technically, Temporal Shield is better than Ice Barrier from a DPS standpoint, because it is off the global cooldown. Unfortunately, changing all those will only make a small difference, if any. If you really want to eke out more numbers, it's all going to come down to your playstyle.

Well, armory seems not to be updated ^^ Switched from Living Bomb to Frost Bomb for one encounter yesterday. Usually I´m using Living Bomb.

Went from Presence Mind to Ice Floes. Think thats a good idea.

Thanks for the help smile.png

Ich spreche Deutsch nur wenig. Sie nicht brauchen zu 50% Tempo überschreiten. Aber Sie können.
 
Können Sie WoL Parses zeigen? Ich werde analysieren und versuchen, Ihnen zu helfen.

That's actually a rule? Heh, okay. My attempt to be helpful went too far.

 

Just asking him to post logs. Can't help him because his armory looks fine. Not perfect, but near perfect, so a lack of DPS must be coming from something he's doing (or not doing).

 

@OP: If you prefer to discuss in German, send me a PM.

      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.
