[Frost] A bit confused about BiS List

3 posts in this topic

Hello, as stated in the title I'm a bit confused about the BiS gear for Frost mages. As far as I can see there are several different opinions on this matter?

 

Askmrrobots list and Icy Veins list are different and I've seen some other lists as well. Also I'm currently going to try 19347 haste on todays raid, what would you think about that?

 

Here's my Armory link with my current stats and gear

Any help/tips will be very appreciated!

Hey Geddon,

Icy Veins sorts the gear alphabetically so you won't see a BiS list there!
With your gear I wouldn't recommend going for 19347 Haste. Even now what i see on your armory, you are breaking socket bonuses + you are gemming JC only Haste gems in red sockets. If you can reach 19347 Haste without sacrificing any gem sockets then go for it. Right now you simply don't have the gear.

Concerning BiS it heavily depends on what HCWF items you have.
For example HCWF Nazgrim Sword > HCWF Spoils Wand.
But yet again HCWF Spoils Wand > HC Nazgrim Sword!

 

I'd just say go for Ilevel!

 

Cheers
Berlinia

 

P.S: It would be highly appreciated if you post another that you follow the title format that you can see on the other titles!
Doesn't matter ofc but its always nice to have a forum look nice and tidy don't you agree?!

Thank you for your reply, what Haste bp would you recommend me to go for with my gear? I'll keep the ilevel in mind when it comes to gear.

Also yes I agree that a nice and tidy forum is best. But I'm not sure what you mean with the title format?

EDIT: read up a bit more and regemmed and forged a bit. How does this look?

I haven't really had the time to type out a lot of details, apologies for that.I've read this post http://altered-time.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=10

I tried to follow it as much as possible. And http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/frostmane/G%C3%ABddon/simple is what my stats look like after trying. as to what items are BiS if someone could link or type out the list for me that would make me really happy. HCWF that is. afaik 2 set pc is the way to go if you have HCWF pieces.

 

I think this is the correct link?

if it is then here are logs of a few bosses on yesterdays raid

I can see that my Invocation uptime isn't very good.

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

 

EDIT: Sorry for the double post, and thanks Oltier

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Evening fellow spell chuckers!
      - Logs (Entire HC Farm Raid)
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/RPZK8MngjtWTAzry#boss=-2&difficulty=0&type=damage-done&source=2
      - Armoury Link
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/argent-dawn/arcere
      - Rotation
      Icy Veins recommended (Glacial Spike). Talents as seen in Armoury.
      - Issue
      Disparity between fights, parsing blue on some and green on others and general underperformance DPS-wise.
      Not very talented with Logs Analysis I will be honest, but I have oftentimes fewer casts which could be attributed to moving too much/panicking during mechanics and sometimes the spells appear to not hit as hard by average.
      Some suspect some fights hold my lower than normal FPS as a partial contributor to my low DPS, but I am certain it's purely a rotational/skill combination error on my part, or not utilizing my tools as I should.
      I run Shard of Exodar and Sephuz as it is the best combination according to SimCraft and I have optimized the gear with what I have using the same tool.
      Shattercapped (by far, a little too far) and Haste approx 35%.
       
      Please send help, as I am breaking my brain with what I am doing wrong! 
       
      Thank you in advance!

      Hi!
      I would like to ask somethng about ice lance and other procs aswell.
      To maximize dps, should you always try to get rid of Fingers of Frost procs with ice lances? And if you get flurry proc, do you want to get rid of ice lance procs before casting flurry + lance combo?
      I am not sure how much icicles and maximizing their damage output before dumping them affects your damage.
      Thank you
