[Frost] Optimizing my dps

10 posts in this topic

Hello there , Im a 664 frostmage and Id like to top the dpsmeters in my guildrun , would appreciate the help. Armory and logs below.

 

I run IN - TV - MI. Depends on the fight tho. Opener is prepot ,MI , FO , IV, WJ. Obviously FB as a filler and BF FFB when I have 1 stack of FoF or less. Still feel like im underperforming.

 

Armory: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/stormscale/C%C3%A1k%C3%A9/advanced

 

Logs: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/qkGa4Cpb1HwQL6Wn#type=damage-done&pins=0%24Separate%24%23244F4B%24damage%240%240.0.0.Any%2481258034.0.0.Mage%24true%240.0.0.Any%24false%240&fight=24&source=1

 

Thanks in advance. <3

Hello, due to the way Frost works right now, I am not 100% sure how to read logs yet except the very basics.
Generally you want to check if the numbers of casts of your Finger sof Frost/ FRostfire bolts correspond with the number of buff gains you had. For in depth log analysis I need to figure out how to check that.

Thanks for responding , I had allready checked that and I munched about 4 icelances over the fight and no ffb , so thats pretty decent imo but ill focus on that abit more. Once you know abit more about the logs for frostmages , just leave something here , ill check it out regularly.

 

Thanks

Do not WJ during FO as that leads to munching FoF procs. This includes on pull; in fact, when running PC using

 

In the butcher kill you casted 4 FO's and 2 PC's, and only one PC on Kargath. You should keep PC on cooldown while holding off FO for it. Again, do not use Water Jet in these situations. In fact, WJ on pull seems to be a tiny dps loss when using IN/PC (see altered time here http://altered-time.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1009).

 

The biggest issue i'm spotting in most fights is your cooldown management. You aren't casting Crystal nor IV on cooldown, while they sync perfectly so you get Icy Veins once every two crystals; you are holding off both for a long time for some reason, to the point where you lose one IV use on some fights (Brackenspore for example) and losing TONS of PC's every time you pick it (one cast on Kargath, two on Butcher, and so on).

Yes I was struggling with the fact if I should use it or not and did not give myself time to get used to the spell , Im using it almost every fight now. And I usually dont use WJ on pull , I use it the moment my PC and FO are gone atleast thats what I try to do. Today is mythic twins run , ill try and get some logs on that. And if you have the time , Id love it if you took a look at those.

 

Thanks

Looking at movement fights is always harder, so there's not much i could add. For twins specifically i recommend running TV/Frost Bomb though, the cleave damage is better than IN/PC imo.

I tried out both frost bomb and ice nova for multiple tries, and Ice nova came out on top every single time.

Keep in mind Frost Bomb is a bit more complicated to use and you might have been encountering playstyle issues!

      A little bit of info about us:

      We currently raid Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:00-22:00 server time. We run social/alt raids during off days in which all ranks of the guild are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is also welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with a 3 days a week schedule that you are expected to attend. However we understand things can come up but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons and world quests to gear in preparation for raids. This includes improving your artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared (i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding.

      - 885 ilvl.
      - 45+ traits.
      - 3 or more mythic boss kills in NH.
      You will receive a response within 3 days but probably within 1. The trial process will last 2 weeks, sometimes longer. During the trial period you will not have loot priority over raiders however you may of course still roll.
      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletags: Vims#21684 or go to our website http://asylum-tn.enjin.com/ .

      <Sodium Rising> is an alliance raiding guild on Stormrage (US). We are recruiting for Nighthold progression.
      Who we are: Raiders from Vanilla and top 40 US raiding experience through current content looking to challenge ourselves with progression and achievements. Our goal is to down all current content on heroic and experience mythic modes before subsequent nerfs, while maintaining a two night a week schedule.
      What we offer: Experienced, stable leadership with years of raiding experience. Free repairs. We have implemented a Master Crafter system. Raiders are required to donate 30 bloods or materials weekly to supply the bank with flasks, potions or food. If you are unable to do so, you may supply your own raiding materials.
      Loot is RCLootCouncil. Discord for communication. Off-night mythics, Karazhan and PVP is strongly encouraged.
      Raid Times: Friday, Saturday 8:30pm EST - 11:30pm EST
      What we expect: Individuals will come prepared for raids, gemmed & enchanted, having read up on strategies, and contributed to their gearing with mythics and world quests outside of normal raid times. Raiders will run the appropriate addons to assist with raiding such as DBM/Skada/Recount. Racism, sexism, and drama will not be tolerated in any form.
      Raiders should know their class, or where to find the appropriate information. Additionally, they should be open to give as well as receive constructive, positive feedback in an adult raiding environment.
      Current needs:
      Any ranged!
      If interested please contact Hero#11693, Catlady#1953, Nawibo#1688 or Rheshi#1686

      Hey all! I need some help with my dps, Im 884 ilvl and only do 350-400k dps overall on fights in Nighthold, even on dummy. 
      I just changed to BoS build so I have to practice, but it feels imossible to get more out of him. Im a bit off at stats and havent got legendary belt, ring or set bonus. Atm I have 25% Crit but only 15% haste :-/ Simcraft says 325 dps... about 360 with Glacial advance build.
      Here is a log from Krosus
