DW Frost Death Knights

Postby Kraziness » Thu Jul 21, 2011 9:11 am

I am looking for some advice from some expirienced dual wield frost Death Knights. I am trying to go from 2H to DW, and I am not sure if I am buying the whole elitest jerks run down of stat priority. I totally agree with the following Str>yellow hit cap>exp cap>. However at that point I am not sure about it especially after hitting on a target dummy for awhile. I know target dummies are more for rotation practice not really figuring out dps. They say Haste>Mastery>Crit. My problem with that is this. Following thier suggested stat weights I am at well over 70% haste, also I would think that since your runforge Fallen Crusader / Razorice that it would be more like Haste=Mastery>Crit. Anyway anyone a DW Frost DK pro out there, I would love some advice before I just give up and go back to 2handers. I can't link my armory from work, but my DK is Dmonic of Shattered Hand. Thanks!

Are you GCD capped? If yes, you have too much haste, if no, you don't. The EJ guides are sketchy since Consider stopped maintaining them, but they're still somewhat okay.

Amirya:Why yes, your penis is longer than his because you hit 30k dps in the first 10 seconds. But guess what? That raid boss has a dick bigger than your ego.
Flex:I don't make mistakes. I execute carefully planned strategic group wipes.

BRB laughing at the thought. Although checking his armory shows a whole fuckton of haste stacking in his reforges.

Stat Priority:
1.) Str
2.) EXP to cap
3.) Hit to cap
4.a) Haste
4.b) Mastery

Haste does beat mastery, and I can't imagine you gaining enough haste that you end up GCD locked.

Haste = faster / more white hits, faster rune regen
Mastery = harder hitting HB, FS, and FF.

Both stats are good, but like I said, if you are GCD locked, I would wager you might be doing something wrong instead of having too much haste.

It feels weird, yes. But you are doin' it right.

On/Off topic - Could use some help for a frost DK. He's about to make the swap to DW from 2h as well but before that was wondering if anyone would mind helping me cross check some of his general DK play.

What does Empowered Rune Weapon show up as in World of Logs?!

http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/4edit28fhnrnujhu/

Trying to get on this DK to have better CD management but can't find Empower Rune Weapon (don't even know if he's using it atm or not). He's got very low usage of pretty much every CD across the board so was wondering if this one was one of the trouble one's as well.

Thanks for any input >.>.

Dear lord I forgot how fun my DW Frost DK was. Other than some minor differences in reforging, are there any playstyle differences between 2h and DW? Should I be prioritizing different spells?

Here is pretty much what I do for DW:

FF (usually not an issue with HB glyph)
BP
HB w/proc
Ob
FS
HB w/out proc

Stat priorities are Str > Hit to 8% > Exp to ~26 (I don't gem for it) > Haste > Mastery > Crit

Armory: Clopin link in sig (yes I know I'm wearing a "tank" neck/cloak, but they were better than the 346 blues I had.)

I haven't really played it much as I haven't been playing much outside of raiding on my main XD.
