Hello all, love the website:)

I'm trying to see if I'm missing anything huge when it comes in terms of damage. On fights like Feng or Spirit-binder I'm expecting usually to finish in the top 5 of DPS compared to the rest of my guild. I'm usually in the top ten but I'm always trying to improve so if you can notice anything flawed with my rotation (Which I got from Icy Veins & Noxxic) or whatnot please let me know, I welcome the criticism.

Here's a report from World of Logs on our Last night MSV run (25m Normal).

http://www.worldoflo...3nt/details/27/

I looked at Simcraft and tried to compare what percentage of what spell did the most damage.

I've noticed that my Frost Bomb and FFB show doing more damage in my world of logs, then the Simcraft T14 PW style does.So Pulling Feng as an exampleCountdown happens by MT.

Pre InvocationPoM + Frost bomb the bossMove to CenterStart Frost-bolting the boss to stack 3 DebuffsCast Frozen OrbBy this time I have the Brain Freeze Proc, and Two Fingers of FrostCast Icy Veins + Trinket (Glyphed) and Mirror Images then Alter TimeStart unloading on boss making sure I'm using up all the FoF procs and after using Brain Freeze, reapplying Frost Bomb.

After Alter Time, Mirror Images and Icy Veins wear off, Use Invocation when it wears off, I keep steady with my Frost Bolts, Applying Frost Bomb when available for Brain Freeze, and using Pet Freeze and Frozen Orb to keep supplied with FoF.

Hello there, sorry for the slight delay.

I've found a log similar to yours, just that the guy does a lot more DPS and that he is not using inv_glyph_majormage.jpgGlyph of Icy Veins: http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/rhagkw30mpw1iyos/details/56/?s=2030&e=2491

By comparing both logs, I've found two interesting things.

First, I think you're casting spell_frost_frostblast.jpgIce Lance way too often. From your log, ability_mage_wintersgrasp.jpgFingers of Frost procced 44 times, yet you cast Ice Lance almost 90 times. In the other log, there are 53 procs of Fingers of Frost and 54 casts of Ice Lance.

Second, you are not casting spell_mage_frostbomb.jpgFrost Bomb often enough. In 7min36, you cast it 32 times, the other guys 41 (in 7min41). You're not only losing damage, but Frost Bomb is the only thing that procs ability_mage_brainfreeze.jpgBrain Freeze. As you can see in your log, you got a lot less procs than the other guy, so a lot less changes to use ability_mage_frostfirebolt.jpgFrostfire Bolt.

      I usually sim my characters to get the best possible results. I enjoy the process quite a lot and since I reached 120, I wanted to find out the best build of the spec. (Note, I didn't want to find out what to play, but rather how my own build fares in comarison.) I rarely mind a 1-2% difference. If it goes above 2%, I really mind a change. What this thread is about is mainly to bring something in the attention of those who help making the class guides, especially the talent choices. To my surprise, I was awed to find out that certain talents outperform previous "Standard" choices in the endgame, probably due to the stat squish.

      The Frost go-to build (top dps) would probably be along the lines of <Icy Talons / Cold Heart - Runic Attenuation - Frozen Pulse - Gathering Storm - Breath of Sindragosa>. What I found out primarily was that after the removal of legendaries, Cold Heart severely underperforms at most given situations resulting in a major dps drop due to the low mastery. Gathering Storm also suffers from the same problem and most of the times, Frostwyrm's Fury is better overall. The biggest surprise of them all, however, was that Inexorable Assault overperforms quite a lot, and is the first reason why I made the topic. I then started simming with the above in mind and I came across a build that some would not consider on par with top dog builds around the meta, which is the use of Horn of Winter which overperforms both its other two options when using the Breath build. Talent Sim can be seen here. Another intresting thing, which I loved, was that the 2nd best build uses Obliteration as a lvl 100 talent and no other build surpassed it (Other than the first one, obviously). So, I encourage frost players out there to give their other, less common talents a try. To the class guide author(s), I believe that the two "underdog" talents will earn their spot in the class guides.

      Thank you for your time reading this.
