Hey,Its me again ernstdieter...

since im finally done with my non heroic raidcontent i thought i could try something new, 

i have the 4 pieces bonus and thought id might go arcane how is arcane now and is it very competitive?
also i have the gloves warforged from siegecrafter, so a pretty nice mastery boost

is 561 a good itemlvl to change again or does frost scale as well as arcane?

Hey, I'd say it doesn't really matter. Both specs are very strong when played correctly, so play whichever one you like most/play best. With your gear(Assuming it's haste/mastery gear) you can play both specs.

You will do the highest DPS with whichever spec you're better at. They both scale similarly now.

 

If you go 10m there will be less chance for you to just stand still, so you might get frustrated with arcane. The biggest arcane parses/rankings come from 25m and mostly are from guilds that have super fast kill times or cheese it, so ignore raidbots.

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Evening fellow spell chuckers!
      - Logs (Entire HC Farm Raid)
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/RPZK8MngjtWTAzry#boss=-2&difficulty=0&type=damage-done&source=2
      - Armoury Link
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/argent-dawn/arcere
      - Rotation
      Icy Veins recommended (Glacial Spike). Talents as seen in Armoury.
      - Issue
      Disparity between fights, parsing blue on some and green on others and general underperformance DPS-wise.
      Not very talented with Logs Analysis I will be honest, but I have oftentimes fewer casts which could be attributed to moving too much/panicking during mechanics and sometimes the spells appear to not hit as hard by average.
      Some suspect some fights hold my lower than normal FPS as a partial contributor to my low DPS, but I am certain it's purely a rotational/skill combination error on my part, or not utilizing my tools as I should.
      I run Shard of Exodar and Sephuz as it is the best combination according to SimCraft and I have optimized the gear with what I have using the same tool.
      Shattercapped (by far, a little too far) and Haste approx 35%.
       
      Please send help, as I am breaking my brain with what I am doing wrong! 
       
      Thank you in advance!

      Hi!
      I would like to ask somethng about ice lance and other procs aswell.
      To maximize dps, should you always try to get rid of Fingers of Frost procs with ice lances? And if you get flurry proc, do you want to get rid of ice lance procs before casting flurry + lance combo?
      I am not sure how much icicles and maximizing their damage output before dumping them affects your damage.
      Thank you
