Just to start I'm not sure if our guild has been logging lately but if they have I will get those into this thread straight way.
Pretty much I levelled this mage first in MoP and thought I may aswell play it and see how it goes. I started as Arcane but have recently gone frost as I enjoy the frost game play more.
However I have noticed a lack of DPS on my behalf and with my guild still progressing through HoF and ToES I know I need to step it up and help them out or there really is no use of me continuing with them as I am only holding them back.
I have followed the Icy Veins DPS guide and optimised equipment from Mr Robot; I am currently in the process of replacing my last few blues with reputation valor items (still working on August Celestials and Shado Pan and Shieldwall) and am hoping this week is the week I finally get a Sha touched weapon from LFR (fingers crossed).
On Stone Guards and Feng in MSV I managed 59k and 52k respectively, compared to the other dps in the group (paladin, lock, another frost mage and monk) who never seem to dip below 60k. I feel this should be much better; again not sure if the lack of a Sha touched weapon is the big difference here (as they all have them, though we are only at most 5 ilvls apart) plus it didn't help today that the wild weather where I live in Australia has been affecting my internet (some very bad timed lag and latency issues).
My single target DPS comprises of Frost Bomb/Frozen Orb off the bat, and then frost bolts untill I hit 3 stacks of the debuff on the boss. I then use procs as they light up and frost bolt as a filler spell, using both Frost Bomb and Frozen Orb as they come off CD. I have just switched to Nether Tempest to try that out for single target. Time Warp is used as called for by the raid and I try to line up my Icy Veins, Intellect Trinket, Intellect Pot and Alter Time when I have 2 fingers of frost and a brain freeze (though trying to use them all as close to coming off CD as possible).
Not sure if this is enough information but I am starting to get frustrated at my DPS in comparison to others in the guild; I really would rather not go back Arcane however perhaps the truth is Mages just aren't my class (I have other classes at 90 or close to 90 so playing something else in the next patch is not an issue).
Pretty much any help that you guys can give or feedback you may have would be majorly appreciated. I know there are many quality players out there and I would love to hear what you have to say.
Thank you all, have a nice day :)
