1st., I am an iLvl 408 Frost DK
2nd., I do 'roughly' 35k+ on Heroic dummy and roughly 50k+ in Heroic DS with bursts of up to
Now here is my dilemma...
Last night I did a Heroic Ragnaros run, and an Assasination Rogue with Legendary Dagger Set kept giving me a run for my money. So I panicked!, as I have never never let any class outperform me in any raid[s]. But then all of a sudden, an Arms Warrior [they were guildies] "without" too much Heroic gear started to pass me by 2-3k DPS as well. [I'm thinking Rogue kept giving him ToT] and I didn't have Kings or Might as no Pally was in grp.
Anyways, I am at a loss here. Does this seem right? Is it what I should expect? I've spent several hours looking through everything past n present about Frost DK's 'maximizing' their DPS. With the gear I have on, I should be doing an 'extra' 5-10k DPS [maybe] somehow, and I am thinking my rotation is 'off'. Here is what I do:
Pestilence>PoF>OB>FS>HB>OB>FS>HoW>FS>RT>OB and continue from there on. My ghoul is macro'd in with PoF also so he is always up. I almost 'never' use PS, and I know I should, but, apart from the weapon damage, refreshing this plague to me is of no greater significant value, as I constantly am reapplying FF with HB. [diseases don't do great amounts of damage, apart from giving OB and FS bigger hits].
So please, I am asking my DK Community for some feedback. How does 'my' DPS compare with yours? 'What' can I do to bring my DPS up? 'What' am I doing wrong? I want to continue hitting the 'hardest' in every raid I do, and keep representing us Death Knights as the 'first' hero Class that we are.
[This is a sincere cry for help in whatever is needed to improve. I don't want to fail again]
