[Frost] Dps Help please

7 posts in this topic

So, I decided to start playing my mage for our guild farm bosses/minor progression instead of my warlock.  I feel like my dps is a bit low for my gear, and was hoping someone could take a look at a quick flex log (don't have any norm/heroic on warcraftlogs).

Just did malkorok for an easy single target fight, wasn't thinking and had nether tempest but I don't think that's a "huge" difference.

Ok, I'll do what I can to get you on the path to more dps :) I'll just look at your Malk kill.

 

Nether Tempest: Not optimal, but you know that, and mistakes happen. Regardless, uptime was only 93.98%. On Malkorok, you should be over 95% uptime for your bomb, period.

 

Invocation: 94.37% uptime, this should be 95%+, though 100% uptime is not optimal, shoot for 97% or so.

 

Ice Lance usage: 30 FoF procs, 30 Ice Lance casts. Well done, you never want to use it without FoF, as it does abysmally low dmg.

 

Frostfire Bolt: 36 Brain Freeze procs, only 30 FFB casts. Try not to miss these, you missed out on a fair bit of dmg from those 6 missed procs.

 

Basically, just try to keep on top of your procs, and maximize uptimes on bomb and L90 talent. You have a good grasp of Frost, so just polish it up a little and you'll be golden :)

Indeed, on Nazgrim your proc usage wasn't as good as it was on Malkorok. You wasted a lot of Brain Freeze procs, and wasted GCDs on Ice Lance without FoF procs. Invoker's Energy uptime was still a little below optimal, but it was over 90%, so not bad. Bomb uptime is harder to look at on Nazgrim, but it looked ok, considering all the different adds.

I think most of those Ice Lances un-procced were on deep freezes.  I don't know why I struggle to get brain freeze procs off but handle ice lance procs better, probably because I can hold two. Working on that for sure.

Ah, that would make sense on the Ice Lances on Deep Freeze targets. Between Brain Freeze only having one charge, and haste increasing bomb tick speed, and thus faster possible procs, it gives you a smaller window of time to use the proc before you risk wasting it.

Are you still progressing?

Cant fathom why you would waste FoF procs on deepfreeze :p

      Hi everyone,

      We are a guild that transferred from Alexstrasza to join the progression raiding scene as that server is very low population now. We are currently 8/8N and 4/8H uldir, and looking to move into heroics soon and mythic just after. 

      We do more than just raid, we love to do keys, transmog runs, and even some PvP. We have a large range of players from several walks of life and have a unique and fun atmosphere, we are friendly and love helping people. 

      We are looking for a few more members for our Sunday/Monday 5-8pm PST, and our tue/third 5-8pm PST. If anyone is interested in raid leading that will work too.

      We are primarily east coast based but have a plethora of players that are on at all times of day.

      Main needs for our raid team:
      ranged dps
      Healers
      Exceptional players

      Of course all players as welcome as we do other guild activities such as world PVP, keys, xmog and other social activities.

      So come join this very active guild and we hope to hear from you.

      If you would like more information please add my btag at Kaatra#5865.

      I look forward to hearing from all of you.
