Frost mage (fair dps, but want to push it)

14 posts in this topic

Hello guys, and many thanks for your time.

 

Back to WoW after a break (year or so), trying to get my skills back.

Armory: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/stormrage/Areanu/advanced

Robot: http://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/gear/eu/stormrage/areanu

 

563ilvl with 2pc, dropped 4pc for 2 warforged items (in accordance to Akraen's guide).

14242 haste -> rest into mastery, so a "mixture" build.

 

Logs: http://worldoflogs.com/reports/rt-a3l1mnpyssi9h4ue/analyze/dd/source/?enc=kills

(Did not switch the bombs as I'm fairly bad with NT yet)

 

Really bad fights for me this week were IJ (horrible, forgot my ele which despawned after jumping from the tower on Galakras / already made tmw icon for it, won't happen again) and Malkorok (not ideal pull, couple of deaths in the raid, messy and hectic for me overall).

 

Good fight (I believe) was Sha and maybe Protectors.

 

I installed affdots 2 days ago, trying to make the most use of it atm.

 

 

I feel though that I'm losing a lot of dps, but I cannot define the source. Decided to ask the kind help of the community.

Many thanks for your help and your time again.

Hellow fellow mage
Gearwise you are right on track. (Just try getting the Nazgrim Shoulders!)

It would be great if you could record with Warcraft logs as I tbh am not great with really analyzing logs from WoL and wouldn't like to give the wrong info. As a general note WoL is outdated and WCL is far far better both in terms of info as in terms of presentation.
If you could provide WCL I'd kiss you smile.png
Otherwise I hope Oltier will be helping you!

Oltier is in the middle of his exams. In fact, if no one seems to have any considerable help here, I'll definitely jump in. But as far as I could see you guys in the community can handle the topics so well. I am proud of you. :)

Looking at Malkorok I think you did a pretty good job.  

 

LB uptime 95% - good job

Invoker's uptime 89% - good, not great..maybe a WA/TMW

BF usage 32 out of 35 - try not to miss any

FoF usage 32 out of 32 - perfect

AT'd twice - great, although can't tell how well you lined up procs

Icy Veins twice - great

Mirror Image once - why not macro this with IV?

Pot once, try to prepot

 

I have looked a WoL entry in a while, but I cannot see the pet damage.  I am sure it is there, just can't see it.  Maybe Berlina will be better able to tell how well you lined up procs/snapshotting, but to me it looks like you did a pretty decent job.

Don't macro it with IV. You will lose a GCD mid Icy Veins!

As Icy Veins doesn't use a GCD for it's usage, macroing it first, second or 200th doesn't change the fact that you lose a GCD :P.
Don't macro it it's a slight dps loss!
That is all due to icy veins being able to be cast at all times ,even during a GCD!

If you do macro IV and Images together make sure to still have IV bound to a separate key aswell.

 

On a progress fight with a tight enrage. Say the boss is at 5 percent. Both IV and Images are ready to use. Obviously use your IV for the DPS increase. However save your Images for a potential clutch kill. 

 

If the boss does an AoE enrage then Dot the Boss, pop Images 1 second before enrage (If you know for sure the enrage timer is accurate) then Iceblock. Hopefully Living Bomb + Images + Welly damage is enough to kill the boss during your ice block.

 

If the boss does a melee swing enrage then pop images, blink to max range. Continue DPS'ing until your last image dies. As the boss is rushing you down you have time for 2 GCD's + Ice Block (With the standard boss movement speed). So cast Ice Lance, Bomb then Iceblock. If you are lucky you have just solo'd a progression boss.

 

(You should Ice Lance if you have Icicles procs even over a Brain Freeze proc) Also if you are lucky enough to have the boss on 400k HP when you are blocked + a proc you can time if so you cancel aura then cast the proc right after the boss swing timer to guarantee to hit the boss without dying. 

 

The closest I have come to clutch killing a progression boss was something like 30k HP on Blackhorn. Never managed to do it but have come very close. I even pop invis sometimes to guarantee I am lowest on the threat table so I can always try to clutch kill things (However during the Invis time I probably could have done 30k DPS so technically I cost my guild a kill... But don't tell them that. Fortunately we got him a few pulls later) 

 

Also I know this is super offtopic but I already typed it all out so I would feel sad having to delete 3 mins of my life.

No. Just don't macro them. Don't teach people bad practices. IV + Mirrors in a macro is a dps loss, period.

We are 10 /10 Heroic Nighthold (10/10 N NH in about 1 1/2 hours) (Providing we arent cutting up and getting yelled at.... by a certain mage in our guild.... who cuts up too.... and won't admit it..... and puts down fake portals.... every week..... and people still take them.... to their death..... really......week..... after week.... to their death...... seriously)
      As always we are recruiting raiders and non raiders.
      *****GIRLS***** We have a large number of female gamers who do not have to worry about harrasment of any kind...we just will not tolerate this... and our group is like family. Come see for yourself!
      Tired of the ridiculous harassment from the opposite sex? You will be safe with us! Mature gamers who do not condone this behaviour!
      Our raid schedule is Tuesday/Thursday/Sunday 6:30pm to 9:00pm server time(pst)
      We currently have an "Alt" raid for alts and non-progression raiders on Mondays at the same time! MEGA amounts of fun there, alot of us use our mains to carry this raid and help gear these raiders up!
      Other guild events include: Herb Drives, Fishing Expo, Mog off! (Best transmog wins), Old Raids for Transmog gear & Mythic Plus runs. We do random guild events with prizes up to and including a FREE MONTH OF WOW! (Mog-Off is going on NOW!!)
      We have quite a bit of fun when we get together, as we always have over the years! Come join us and get corrupted (Disclaimer: Infections have been found to be the leading cause of corruption in many raiders) We've always been here and will continue to be here! Of course you will be required to sacrifice a goat or an alliance player once a week to the Horde gods..... You will also be required to laugh and have fun as well! We do have fun!
      So.......COME.......GET.......CORRUPTED!

      Thank you for your comments and help,

      Who are we?
      Volatile are a group of mostly ex-mythic raiders, looking to get back into mythic raiding and for us to be able to do that we need some more people to fill the gaps. Besides raiding our friendly bunch of members enjoy running mythic+ on daily basis, helping out with world quests among other things. Our discord is usually filled with members for daily banter and weekly fun. If you enjoy all that, you most certainly will enjoy your stay in Volatile.
      Who are we looking for?
      We're primarily looking for ranged DPS to fill out the roster. But we are also interested in any dps class with a good healing offspec. Even though your class isn't listed below, don't be afraid of getting in contact with us.
      Tanks - Closed
      Healers - Closed
      Ranged DPS - Open
      Melee DPS - Closed
      Overall we're looking for people with a good knowledge of their class/spec who know how to improve their gameplay. Being fairly thick skinned and being able to accept constructive criticism, as well as the occasional jab from some of our more 'outspoken' members, is a big plus too.
      When do we raid?
      We raid two times a week as standard, we often have an additional raid day if necessary. See raid times below. 
      Thursday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Monday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Tuesday: 8pm - 11pm (Additional day)
      Application process:
      We believe the best way to get to know if someone is right for the guild is just to have a chat, rather than go through a long application process. So we'll have a chat, look at logs and possibly run some M+ to get to know each other. If you're interested in joining our mythic raid team, contact any of the following:
      Contact us:
      GM: 
      Xadel#2609, Xadel (ingame)
      Passive#2900, Malenky (ingame)
      Council: 
      Òops#2597, Drainphase (ingame)
      Ohajay#2606, Draconem (ingame)
      Hjp#21650, Phynn (ingame)

      If you are swedish, looking to raid 2-3 days a week, looking for a very social, fun but still competitive mythic guild, then look no further, we are the guild for you. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us.
      About us:
      Geek Squad is a swedish guild that has been around for many years. We are currently focusing on mythic raiding and our goal is to always clear the current content before the release of the next tier. The guild is composed mainly of former hardcore raiders who can't play as much as in our younger days but who still want to play, have fun and have a good progression. Since we raid only 2 days a week we expect our raiders to have a high attendance and to be well prepared for current content. 
      Raid schedule:
      Wednesday Optional Hc clear: 19-When we are done
      Thursday: 19–22
      Sunday: 18-22
      We never extend beyond these raiding hours.
      What do we expect from you:
      - Swedish speaker; as the guild solely consists of swedish players we expect you to have a good understanding of the swedish language and be able to communicate on both voicecom and chat.
      - Attendance; as we only raid 2 days a week and keep a tight roster of raiders (not more then few on the bench at time) so being there and available even if not selected for certain boss is very important
      - Maturity; as the average age in Geek Squad is a bit above most guilds we would prefer if you are as well. We are a bunch of guys with families, jobs and real lives outside of the game and we understand all that comes with it. However if you are to commit to raiding with us we want you to be in it for the long haul. We focus on having fun with the game while also maintaining a competitive attitude, we hope you want to be a part of and contribute to that.
      - Social skills; be communicative, enjoy the game, let us know in advance if something is going to interfere with your raiding schedule so that we can plan accordingly. In our own modest opinions we have one of the best guild environments you can be a part of and we want to bring in more people who can positively contribute to that.
      - Know your class inside out and how to perform it to its maximum. Be able to take constructive criticism
      What can we offer you:
      - Stable guild; the guild has been around for a long time and we have no plans to slow down now.
      -We always try to bring the players that will give us the most chance of killing a boss on progression fights, this means you will have the same chance as everyone else of competing for a spot.
      - Experienced and motivated players; most of our raiders have played the game for a long time (vanilla/tbc) and are still highly motivated to get the most of the raiding time that we have together. If you are to join us we expect you to do everything you can to further those goals.
      - Occasional alt raids, not mandatory. Totally optional for people who want a little bit more raiding on side with their alts
      PROGRESS:
      Emerald Nightmare: 7/7
      Trial of Valor: 2/3
      Nighthold: 8/10 (10/10 HC farming on off days)
      RECRUITMENT:
      We are currently looking to extend our roster with 2-3 players and are looking for the following classes:
      Rogue
      Elemental Shaman
      Warlock
      Frost DK
      Balance Druid
      We don't have an application form as we feel that is an old and inefficient way of doing recruitment. Instead we focus on interviews as well as going through a bit of logs. We don't expect you to consistently parse in the 90% but at least showing that you know your class well.
      As for which classes we are looking for we are quite flexible at the moment as we currently have a good class balance already so we are mainly interested in you as a player rather than your class/specc. With that said we do specifically want a resto shaman and a rogue a bit more than anything else.
      If you are interested feel free to contact us.
      How to apply:
      To apply contact Ithok#2898, Krebb#2944, kebban#21852 or whisper an officer ingame.
      Thanks for reading and hope to hear from you soon!
