Question about T4 Frost/Blood

So I have inv_helmet_plate_raiddeathknight_n_01.jpMagdalena's Murderous Crown 2/2 which I think we all know is not great itemization for 2H Frost spec. But I just got my inv_helmet_24.jpgHelm of the Cursed Vanquisher, and it would make my 4P bonus. That's a dramatic drop in item level and stats for a 4P that I'm not entirely sure is worth it. Any thoughts or advice from more experienced raiders? Just trying to find the most DPS output I can so I can pug a Siege and not be a crutch.

 

I also have the same inv_helmet_plate_raiddeathknight_n_01.jpMagdalena's Murderous Crown 2/2 with the tanking legendary meta, etc. Its only my third tier piece available for Blood, but I figured I'd throw it all in one post. Is it worth swapping out the item level and stamina for the 4P to have all the death runes every few minutes?

 

My armory (just in case it's any help).

I'm not 100% to be honest i can't say numbers or anything but i believe you would get a slight boost from getting 4 set once helm is double upgraded granted it's slight nothing huge but if you were to go Dw i believe the upgrade would be very worth it but your 2h so idk tbh i'd go with it cause it is a pretty decent 4p but like i said i'm not 100% sure an ddon't have numbers to back it up.

 

Also if your dps is a bit low or w.e assume it to be your trinkets til u get better trinkets like evil eye and TTT or atleast evil eye over fire core

I don't have a lot of logs dps'ing because I've mostly been raiding fairly casually for the last month or so, but from logs that I can find Frozen Power (the 4pc bonus) accounts for about 4-5k dps. that's with roughly 40% uptime on Pillar of Frost. If your uptime is better or worse than that then you may get slightly higher or lower overall dps from the 4pc bonus.

 

with both double upgraded the difference stat wise would be

-595 Strength

-893 Stam

-304 Haste

-508 Mastery

 

Using Mendenbarr's stat weights for 2H frost. that would be:

6.46dps per str = 3843.7 dps

3.39 per haste = 1030.56 dps

3.65 per mastery = 1854.2 dps

 

Total = 6728.46 dps loss from stats.

 

So best case scenario the 4 piece could be better in some situtations, but I'm assuming you probably don't have a heroic eye of Galakras to get your pillar of frost uptime higher, so You're actually probably slightly better off staying with the warforged helm.

The lord storm has spoken. I actually thought about him not having even normal mode eye and his pillar being a much lower uptime never posted anythign about it but I thought of it. So yeah 4p probably a dps less I suppose

      Hi everyone. I just killed HC Varimathras and I was surprised by my low damage. There was not second time warp because we used the first one at 20% HP but I think I should get higher numbers. Can anyone tell me what did I do wrong? Was it really only in TW? I do not think so :/.

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      Hello,
      I seem to do very little damage on my opener and then following it up later.
      Here are my logs https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/9gqQaXwfmFGzH6Dy#fight=25&type=summary
      My armory https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/ravencrest/fettucini 
      I'm curious whether this is just bad playing or a lack of gear.

      Like the title says, I am just seeking some extra help on how I can improve my performance. I dont feel like my dps is lacking but think it could be better.
      Armory: https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/shadowmoon/frostybones
      (I know i need a couple enchants)

      Side note: When I have Icy Veins + BL up I catch myself overriding FOF or BF procs because its not registering my keypresses fast enough. Anyone else run into this issue?
