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:

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.

      I came to Icy Veins to setup my Elemental Shaman only to find your Talent setup does not match what is offered in the game presently.  Below I have listed what I see in my current in-game talent setup and bolded those items that do not match your setup at all.
      Current in-game Talents listed:                                                   Your Listing:                      
      15 Exposed Elements Echo of the Elements Elemental Blast               Earthen Rage 30 Aftershock Master of Elements Totem Mastery       Call the Thunder 45 Spirit Wolf Earth Shield Static Charge         60 High Voltage Storm Elemental Liquid Magma Totem       Master of the Elements 75 Nature's Guardian Ancestral Guidance Wind Rush Totem         90 Earthen Rage Primal Elementalist Icefury       Surge of Power 100 Unlimited Power Stormkeeper Ascendance         I thought someone here should know about these differences because it appears there has been no update recently to your setup.   I know that I personally would appreciate an update so that I can adjust my in-game setup to work better.

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which semi-recently transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some shit.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are in need of any competent DPS, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.
