Icy touch bugy when using as a dd?

Postby Dantriges » Wed Apr 21, 2010 12:06 pm

I just wondered if IT sometimes gets his increased threat modifier in other presences than frost or is it just the no -threat talents in the standard spec? I´ve read about IT doing not the proper amount of tps sometimes and you have to switch to frost presence again, so I wonder if the opposite is also probable?

i don't believe so. at least it's yet to happen to me. i have aggro problems on my frost dk until recently when i put a point into subversion. it's just the no subversion dps generating a ton of tps (i would do upwards of 7k tps while doing 8k dps)

IT is fine, from what I've seen. Players are the issue. "Bad" tanks and/or overeager DPS.

Don´t think tha our warrior is bad, it´s rather an overeager dps issue.

That's hard to unless Death and Decay is in your rotation.

20% threat reduction in Unholy/Blood presence. So to pull greater than 7K TPS at 8K DPS you'd need to be using Rune strike or D&D.

So you're not doing 7K TPS at 8K DPS.

Semantics aside, Frost DK's have some of the highest threat per damage done second to Hunters who can Feign it all away.

Mine is specced 0/54/17, I'm using UA and Orc Racial on cooldown, and I still never have threat issues on single target fights, even while typically leading the group/raid in DPS and damage done.

Arms warriors probably have it slightly worse actually, since they also have only a 20% passive threat mod, but have bonus % threat mods on execute and whirlwind.

I suppose I should disclaim that I haven't tested SD execute or bladestorm WW threat recently, but I did test fury WW threat last month, and it definitely still has a threat mod of around 125%.
