[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

      SERVER: Illidan
      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time.
      LEGION PROGRESSION: 2/11M at the end, started Mythic on every other raid tier.
       
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING*
      Tanks All DPS (Healer offspec preferred but not required) ABOUT US
      Now recruiting for BFA!
      Currently looking for skilled and laid back Tanks & DPS for the upcoming expansion.
      We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out. 
      Fun guild events are scheduled often!
      Overall, we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
      GOALS FOR BFA
      In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic. 
      This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.) 
      SCHEDULE UNTIL BFA*
      We are currently on a hiatus until BFA hits, so most of our members are highly active in Discord as opposed to on WoW.
                *Schedule subject to changes.
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW
      Make sure to add me on Battle.net and/or fill out our app to join us. We look forward to speaking with you!

      Hey everyone,
      So, I think my problem is my gear as I have been trying to rack my brain on why my dps is not that great in raids. Some of it I admit is probably not sticking 100% to my rotation, but any help/suggestions would definitely be appreciated.
      You can find the analyzer for the most recent log here: https://wowanalyzer.com/report/4K3dCR86gfMv2Njt/2-LFR+Antoran+High+Command/Darkbriar
       
      Thanks in advance! 😎

      Hi all,
      Im not sure where to post this but im hoping someone can help or at least point me in the right direction.
      TL;DR - My DPS is awful and i want to increase it
      I played fire & frost spec back in cata upto 85 and have recently got back into WoW again and finally realised what people talk about when they play "end game" i wish id known about raiding sooner!
      However, My DPS isnt great at all im eq 959 ilvl but my DPS comes out as low as 8-900 sometimes or i can hold a steady 1.1-1.2M. Simc comes out around 1.7M (obviously in a perfect world) but i still feel im doing something wrong.
      Ive watched videos, read forums and im sure my rotation is right. Im using Flask, Food and Runes and Pre-potting. I have some logs here of garothi.
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/XRqCaL6jFVpW9MnG#fight=5&type=summary&source=23&view=events
      and this is my Raider.io - https://raider.io/characters/eu/twisting-nether/Buksh
      Not sure if ive posted this in the right place OR if ive given enough info to help. but anything would be hugely appreciated.
