DW frost looking to better my DPS

8 posts in this topic

Just looking for some feedback on what I could do to improve on my DPS.

 

Armory:

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/stormreaver/Igetdahkstoo/advanced

 

Logs:

These are all on flex as I have already done most of what i'll clear on normal this week(waaaaah pugs tongue.png ) and don't have logs for them.

http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/i6xxezceollj0hfu/details/98/?s=1336&e=1643 DPS seems really low for some reason, even for this fight.

Let me know if you need more logs or any more info.

 

And I am using the simple rotation.

Kinda low uptime on plagueon the protecters

No pots i believe

I wouldn't use death and decay at all

Maybe increase your haste cause i know at lowish ilvls sometimes having low haste sucks

 

 

Can't say much more for the protectors fight kinda did this in a hurry

I don't see anything obviously wrong. It is flex, so not wanting to use Potion / Flask etc is fine. That and given your current weapons + trinkets, there is only so much numbers that you can pull. unsure.png  My only concern would be blood plague uptime because it looks like you don't use obliterate in your rotation (which is fine). So, how are you recycling your unholy runes? If you use them on Plague Strike I would have expected higher uptime numbers on some of these fights.

Quickly looking at it again i found that you only got 50 runic from horn of winter on average i'd say it should be more like 100

Also maybe could gained more from ams only gained 360 granted idk maybe not I don't really know

You absolutely should be using DnD on protectors and you should be using DnD any time there are adds to AOE or the boss will stand in it the whole time. So basically use it on cooldown.

 

Your dps looks fine for your gear level minus the low uptime of bp. Soul reaper is ehhh, not using it is ok but you'd probably see a few more deeps during the execute phase. flask and pots would help and so would properly soaking with AMS when you can.

Honestly in my opinion, I would check out askmrrobot.com first, since I see you have some stam gems and honestly you're not a tank, you're dps smile.png you need to kill that dude as fast, as possible and kick ass. I believe there'sa green gem that's hit/mastery, or you might check out straight mastery, but I don't think theres a green that's str/mastery. aside from that I didn't really look up your rotation, since im 2h frost and we use obliterate almost every time its on the killing machine proc, im not sure why its out for DW, but yeah. As for DnD USE IT, it is another DoT that hurts your boss, adds, and everything else that's red, unless its right before adds, where you are left without it, like in sha or pride I think it is, then use it when adds come out, other than that I use it on rotation...

Thanks for the feedback all smile.png

Working on uptime on Plague(I spend my UH runes on plague strike usually)

 

Working on soaking a bit better with AMS, and Horn of Winter I use generally only as a filler when I don't have anything else to cast so I can understand not much RP from that.

 

I just started using Soul reaper in the past few days so i'm still getting into the habit of using it and hopefully will soon get better and working as many in as possible.

 

Generally I only have been using D&D when there are a significant amount of adds around(sun's desperate measures phase, self-reflection on sha, etc.) but I will try using it more on CD if the boss won't be moving out of it.

 

As for why I have Mastery/stamina gems in my blue slots, is because I am over hit cap(not the best itemized gear) after reforging out of hit on every item that has it. so the hit is wasted until I am in better itemized gear, so I went with mastery/stamina to get the socket bonus(if anyone has info on when I should just go for straight mastery or whatever stat, and forego socket bonuses, that would be great)

you would only ignore the socket bonus if the bonus was anything but str, which to my knowledge is nothing 553+ or if the piece already has mastery and has blue sockets OR if you feel you aren't close to dying. IE shoulders that give mastery and have 2 blue sockets; just jam mastery gems in there. but the rest of the time if its red/blue or yellow/blue just go ahead and go for the socket bonus.

 

your current gem set up is totally fine, DKs have low hp compared to almost everyone else so having a little extra healer buffer is not a bad thing at all, esp when you are over hit cap. With your current gear I'm not seeing any  piece for you to go straight fractured gems, because single best gem and socket for us is red with the hybrid str/mast gem.

      Hey everyone,
      So, I think my problem is my gear as I have been trying to rack my brain on why my dps is not that great in raids. Some of it I admit is probably not sticking 100% to my rotation, but any help/suggestions would definitely be appreciated.
      You can find the analyzer for the most recent log here: https://wowanalyzer.com/report/4K3dCR86gfMv2Njt/2-LFR+Antoran+High+Command/Darkbriar
       
      Thanks in advance! 😎

      SERVER: Illidan
      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time.
      PROGRESSION: 2/11M
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING*
      Tank All DPS (Healer offspec preferred but not required) Possibly accepting other roles! ABOUT US
      Now recruiting for BFA!
      Currently looking for skilled and laid back Tank & DPS for the upcoming expansion.
      We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out. 
      Fun guild events are scheduled often!
      Overall, we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
      GOALS FOR BFA
      In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic. 
      This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.) 
      SCHEDULE UNTIL BFA**
      Fridays currently mandatory for core raiders for a partial Heroic clear.
      Sundays reserved for non-mandatory misc WoW activities (M+, leveling alts for BFA etc.) or other non-WoW related events.
      If ilvl is high enough, you can join for Friday (950+) and Sunday on any character, not just the one you want to play in BFA.
                *The class you play in BFA can be different from what you play now; we will be flexible until the expansion hits.
                **Schedule subject to changes.
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW
      Make sure to add me on Battle.net and/or fill out our short 6 question app to join us. We look forward to speaking with you!

      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.
