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.

      <Pickle Palace> is a recently formed guild on Illidan, but is made up of veteran players who wanted to take a step back from semi-hardcore raiding. We are currently raiding Mythic Antorus (9/11), with our goal being to finish it out before the end of the expansion. Our community is actively playing outside of raid time, pushing M+ and hanging out on discord.

      We raid on a 2 day schedule. Our raid days are Tuesday and Wednesday 9-12 EST. And will be adding a 3rd raid day for BfA! (Thursday or Monday)

      We are currently recruiting,

      All Exceptional Ranged DPS
      &
      Shaman w/ offpsec heals

      Expectations
      Have a great attitude every night. Be prepared for every raid; this includes purchasing consumables and studying encounter strategies. We provide feast/codex/flasks other consumables are your responsibility Zero tolerance policy for criticizing others' performance. Officers will take care of it, worry about yourself and yourself only. Be critical of your performance and take time outside of raiding hours to analyze warcraftlogs for personal improvement. Have fun. We love playing with each other in a friendly, team-oriented, boss-crushing atmosphere -- and you should too! Must be able to tolerate adult language
      If you are interested in joining <Pickle Palace> please contact,

      Introduction
      We are a group of friends, who share a love for video games. We were looking for a more organized approach to the game and naturally formed a guild. Now we're mainly looking for people who are curious towards PvE content such as raiding and mythic+. We are very open, friendly and like to joke around with each other. We always have room for more people to have fun with.
      Vision
      We've only recently formed our raiding team, meaning there's still room for improvement. 
      Our goal for legion is to clear Heroic at least before BFA hits. Currently, we've killed 4/11HC. We're still trying to build the main roster where we can rely on our players, instead of having to bring in pugs for every other raid. For the rest of legion, we're looking for healers mainly.
      In BFA we'll be doing our best to gear up as a guild, to enjoy the challenging aspect of the game. Meaning we'll be focusing in clearing PvE content mainly and push as far as we can into mythic raiding content. Realistically we'd like to be clearing HC for every raid-tier. We want to get the right composition to progress with a decent speed.
      As our raid team is quite new, we expect everyone involved to be patient and keep their frustrations off mic or in a whisper to the raid leader and let him deal with problems that may occur.
      Here's a small list of expectations we've got for you as an aspiring raider:
      Good and friendly attitude despite frustration during progression runs. Self-awareness & self-enlightenment. A raider's mentality; dedication and reliability. Focus during the boss encounters. Perform assigned tasks given by the raid leader.  Know your class like the back of your palm. Use tools like Simcraft, Warcraftlogs, and WoWAnalyzer to better yourself. Willingness to put the well-being of the raid team above personal gain (Loot, benching etc.). Good attendance and preparations (Flask/Food/Pots). When we're raiding, we won't hesitate to remove anyone who, repeatedly act toxic. All raiders will be evaluated as we go, based on their performance and attitude in the raiding environment. 
      Raid Information
      Raid Days: Wednesday & Thursday
      Raid Time: 19:00-23:00 CEST / Server time
      Loot System in Legion
      In Legion we're currently using Loot Council as the looting system and will always look for the best way to improve the raid group as a whole, rather than a player. We're a team, and there's no I in team. As Blizzard has stated they're removing ML in BFA which means we'll have to adapt to personal loot once BFA is released. 
      Communication
      We use Discord for all communication and as a guild front, you'll find all the information you need in here. It will contain information about guild-based activities such as raids, social runs, logs etc. If something is missing, feel free to contact one of our officers, and we'll get it fixed asap.
      As a European guild, we're aware that people with different languages will be present. Therefore we've decided to require every member to speak basic English and keep all public chatter be in guild chat or discord in English as well.
      Anything else?
      We've got a friendly environment, open to get new players to join our guild and get some more progression going. We've got a single rule due to earlier experiences, which is an age restriction on 18+. We also play other games, so if you hit it off with some of us, why not venture outside WoW and grow the relationship.

      Contact us!
      You can catch us on following Battle.net account or characters.
