[Frost] Dps Guidance

Recommended Posts

Hi, i´ve been a regular reader of this forum for quite a while now and trying to optimise my rotation and build from what i can read in the forum and the guides but now i think im stuck and cant come much further just by reading these guides or rather i cant find the "problems" with my own gameplay, im doing just fine but i wanna do better and therefore i come here for a little guidance.

 

is there anything you can find that i should do different? do you have any tips on how i can optimise my dps? 

 

Here is an armory link : http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/tarren-mill/Dretox/advanced

 

And here is logs from our last Raid: http://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/2YTfzLAnDvQNwMFk#fight=33&type=damage-done&source=5

 

Thanks for an awesome forum and website!

Heh - you should be teaching us, not the other way around :)

This is not the last time I'll be looking at your log, but I doubt very much I'll be able to give you any advice you don't already know.

Hey Dretox,

Your malkorok kill was very good, the only thing that I am wondering (and not really sure if I can test that) is do you actually use Brain Freeze > Ice Lance when both BF and FoF are active? Also on malk you did hardcast one Frostfirebolt!!

 

Now if I am to scrutinize your logs, the main thing I do NOT see is Cone of Cold usage. On immerseus for example you only used it 3 times in a 6 minute fight. On a 3:45 fight (in which I am not even allowed to AoE alot) I have 4 Cone of Colds cast. Remember how powerful that spell is! If you want to AE always check if CoC is on cooldown and rather use that! You can use it on Immerseus, Protectors, Galakras (you didn't use CoC even once!!!), Dark Shamans and Spoils (garrosh as well on the early adds)

 

Additionally i see you spellsteal the buff from Spoils. If you do it for the good of your group that's cool but remember it's not a dps increase!

 

On nazgrim you also have a low uptime of Living Bomb. You also have 100% uptime on Invoker's energy which you generally don't want to do. Invoker's energy first falls off and THEN you recast it!

It's 3;30 now so i might have missed something (and i didn't go terribly deep in the logs) but I think the main things like CoC usage I did pick up smile.png

Hope you can make use of this!

And pardon me for the late reply!
Cheers
Berlinia

Thank you for taking the time to go through my log and giving me advise, I usually try to get off my Bf before I use fof so that I make use of the 2 set bonus, but can probably make that even better. As for the coc usage I haven't actually realised how important that spell is and will make it a part of the rotation when I'm doing aoe and of course use the glyph.

As for the spellsteal I'm aware that it doesn't give me any dmg :)

The high uptime on invokes energi is probably due to me having a tellmewhen that shows Mr when there is 5 seconds left of the buff but I will make it a bit shorter so that I won't renew it before it has fallen off.

Thanks again for taking the time and effort Berlinia

Cheers

Hey Dretox,

Generally what you want to do is to refresh invoker's energy if your next spell isn't going to benefit from it. An example is:
If you have 0,8 seconds left on IE, and you can cast a spell. You can always cast a Living Bomb effectively making you be able to cast evocation again at 0,2s after the buff has fallen off. Channel it for 1.5 seconds (this is a random time xD) making you go over to finishing the cast at 1,7 seconds after it fell off. It might seem like you lower your uptime, but effectively you do not lose absolutely anything :)

Ah, i see i haven't thought about it like that to be hones. I will try to work it into my head so I start doing it that way instead:)

Thank you!

I am in need of a bit more guidance, this time it is to get my dps as high as possible for the 1st intermission adds. We have only had 2,5 hours on this fight so it quite new to me. The issue is that om constantly lagging behind on dmg on these adds. My dmg is ~4 mill on these adds.

My frozen orb have ~5 seconds left on its cooldown when the intermission starts, should I save the orb so I have it ready for the intermissions start instead of using it on cd?

Do you have any tips? I'll see if I can get hold of our logs.

Cheers

 

Edit: (i didnt mention it before but it is the garrosh fight i am talking)

As a frost mage you can easily be one of the top damage on these adds if you get some nice procs (log of a random wipe where I had beast damage on them: http://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/vrgyZjwRD6Mfpm8J#fight=42&type=damage-done&target=475). Frozen Orb is the king here. You shouldn't need to use it for a 2nd time in that first transition, obviously from an overall dmg perspective it's better to use it there for max aoe but to focus on cleaving the Embodied Doubts you will need to save it.

 

Im usually on the inside adds so I will DoT 3 LBs as Im running, then throw orb as i reach my pack, and just spam all my procs onto them. With decent RNG I've reached 10+million.

Here are the logs from our progress today, 

http://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/yz8QcBnpJ63WjbrY

 

We had some changes in the group during the attempts so for the last ~10 tries im on engineer and desecrate which is a bit more movement than i usually do. 

 

This is the first time we get to 2nd intermission and i have gotten my dps in the 1st intermission alot better now that i save my Frozen orb :)

 

Cheers

      I'm new to using icy-veins, and I cannot seem to get used to navigating the WoW class guides. Why is stat info the 13th section of the guides, but max level content 6th through 12th? Where do I find comparisons between specs?

      Guild: Dawn of the Dead | http://www.dotd.org   Faction: Horde | Server: Zul'jin (PvE) | Timezone: EST   Current Progression: 8/9M BoD | 2/2H CoS | 8/8M Uldir CE   We've been raiding max size raids continuously since WoW has been released and are the only guild to have done so here on Zul'jin. We have strong leadership, no drama, and plans to keep raiding for years to come. Unlike many guilds, we're not recruiting for the short term, and we don't over-recruit.   Website: www.dotd.org
        Raid Times: Our schedule is 8-11 EST Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.   Needs: We are a small guild, and we expect high attendance. As such, we recruit people to raid, and desire people who can step in and contribute immediately. We don’t recruit people to sit around, so all spots are for raiders who can expect to be in most every raid.   We are currently looking to add skilled and reliable:
      Ranged DPS: High: Shadow Priest, Mage Medium: Warlock 1 Healer:
      High: Resto Shaman, Mistweaver Monk
       
      *ALL exceptional applicants will be considered regardless of the class.   What we ask of you:   Effort: Not all applicants come from highly progressed guilds, and that’s okay, but it does mean that you need to be prepared. We recruit the player, not the gear, but we do ask that you have some current experience. You need to have the best gear available to you with top end enchants and gems where available. You also need to be able to display an understanding of your class mechanics, role in a raid, and ability to learn new fights.   Attitude: It’s a game. We play for fun. How you fit in with the guild is taken very seriously. We’re a bunch of mostly 18-30 guys and girls who have fun playing together. While we have a good time, we also know when it’s time to buckle down and work hard.   Skill: The best way to determine skill is to see you in a raid. Because we don’t wish to have anyone transfer that we’re not serious about, be able to express your knowledge of your class and why you’re an exceptional player who would be an asset and is worth a shot. Gear will come with time. Skill will not. Impress us with your knowledge of your class and gameplay mechanics. Feel free to share any logs, theorycrafting, or other work you've done.   Commitment: We make a commitment to you, and ask you to do the same to us. A raid takes a team of more than 20 individuals working together. We rely on you to show up to raids, research your class and new fights, respect your fellow players, and notify us when you are unavailable. You rely on us for gear, experience, and coordination. It's a large investment of our time to train and gear new players, and we ask the same investment on your part so that we can each benefit.   We have a variety of informational resources available to prospective applicants on our web site: http://www.dotd.org-- please refer to our "Applications" forum for detailed information. Also feel free to visit us on WoWProgresss for more information and kill videos! http://www.wowprogress.com/guild/us/...wn+of+the+Dead   Should you wish to speak to someone in-game, please don't hesitate to reach out to an officer directly, whisper Alloren (Alloren#1606), Xanah (Xana#1662) or Jeare (Jeare#1759).   We look forward to hearing from you soon!

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which 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 *filtered*.
      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 accepting applications for any role, 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.

      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.
