I'm not sure why you would use Death Strike and Death Siphon as frost DK.

If you follow our guide's rotation, -which is quite simple and sometimes you will jsut stand still, waiting for the runes to regenerate- you shouldn't have any issues.

 

However, if you give our DK moderators some combatlog links, I am sure they will be more than happy to help you out.

Yeah, don't use Death Strike as frost unless you REALLY need the selfhealing and there's no heals to be expected from others.

Same with Death Siphon, its just not worth it. 

 

Seeing that you're 2H frost, only use DnD in aoe situations. In your single target rotation you can use the unholy runes for Obliterate, which is your main damage dealer.

 

Soul Reaper only when the target is below 35% when it expires.

 

Dark Simulacrum is generally quite useless in raiding environment. The only use I've found for it is Kadris's Froststorm bolt on the Dark Shamans encounter. Elsewhere the simulated spells deal very little damage so the RP is better spent on Frost Strike. Even on shamans it might be a DPS loss to use Dark Sim.

Pretty much what the posters above me said.

 

Dark Sim has very limited use in PvE and shouldn't really be part of any rotation. Same with Death Strike, can't see it being useful aside from solo-ing or questing where the heals can be useful. Follow the basic rotation explained in the guide.

 

Also, try to get at least some cheap gems / enchants on all that gear and get some reforging done to get your hit to 7.5%. All those little things add up significantly in a long fight.

What link are you trying to find? This is the link to the rotation section of the guide here: http://www.icy-veins.com/frost-death-knight-wow-pve-dps-rotation-cooldowns-abilities

 

Whether you want to gem/enchant your gear or wait for upgrades is a personal choice based on your realm / toon's economy. Just be aware that not gemming/reforging will leave your toon non-optimal and hence your dps will not be as much as it could be.
