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.

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

      Maximum Effort is a new guild on Cenarion circle (A). I was the raid leader for my guild for a long time and we built up a strong raid team. Due to do some dis-agreements between me and the guild leader I was forced to leave. But luckly enough a lot of my team followed me! We're working to build a guild focused around team work and group progression. We love doing mythics, raids, talking and theory crafting about the game!
      We have a very strong-core raid group, capable of clearing heroic and doing some mythic but we're just missing a few people to round it out!
      Raid nights.. Tue/wed 6-830pm server (9:30-11:30 est) Off night Monday 6-830pm server (9-11:30 est)
      Looking for.. -Any and all dps specs -possibly a raid healer
      All raid mats and needs are covered by guild, we run personal look just for the ease of it.
      My btag is Hethrus#1504 if you have questions or wish to try out!

      Anyone already done the math on this?  Does it make it more beneficial to have Let It Go x3 (Frost, Arcane, Frost) and sacrifice iLVL on the artifact weapon or to have 3 other (not as effective) relics but with a higher iLVL. 
      Example:
      Let It Go (865, 885, 850)
      Other Relics (Ice Age 895, Obsidian Lance 895, Ice Age 900)

      <Trust> may be what you're looking for if you enjoy killing internet dragons with a group of like minded players! Currently we are 8/9 Heroic, soon to be stepping into Mythic ToS. We are recruiting to finish rounding out our raid team. <Trust> is located on the [US] Doomhammer/Baelgun pve servers, alliance side! Check us out!
       
      About Us:
      <Trust> is a recently formed guild, founded by a group of long time players that have been raiding together for a couple of years now. Founded out of a desire to continue raiding in a casual-progression manner, we work towards defeating mythic bosses. <Trust> is a raiding guild, first and foremost.
       
      Our Raids:
      <Trust> maintains a progression-oriented 2-day semi-casual raiding team. That's 'semi' as in we expect our team members to always prioritize life first; but not 'casual' as in we take downing bosses less seriously. We strive to maintain a balance of taking our progression raids seriously while having plenty of laughs along the way.
       
      Raid Schedule:
      Tuesday & Thursday: 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)
      Friday(optional): 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)
       
      Recruitment:
      <Trust> is looking for full time Resto Druid, Mages, Hunters, and Warlocks for our raid team. We are also open for good people to join as casual players, pvpers, with the option to join farm content or alt raids.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is 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 only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes 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/world quests to improve your gear and 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 and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
