I am new here - and also fairly new to DeathKnight (used to raid on my 80 rogue).
I just thought i would post some screenies of todays Naxx25 Patch kill. My spec is 21/50/00 and my weapon is Death's Bite. I use the rotation IT - BS - BS - BT - OB - OB - FS until first rune ready - IT - IT - IT - IT - IT. After that its hard to "maintain" a rotation. I priotise IT over FS mostly - but all in all i try to keep it balanced so i dont "waste" any Runic Power. I use Obliterate every time an unholy rune is ready - to get it converted to a death rune asap.
I find myself a skilled DeathKnight - as i have yet to see anyone come near my dps. Before patch i was DW 00/32/39 - but i like this 2h spec more
Keep in mind i died at 6-7%(hateful) - hence my dps could have been a tiny better
4 set piece is nice but nothing spectacular..it can situationally make your executes hit a bit harder thats all it offers (since u r never outta rage in raids)
Gear...u aint terrible but u could be a lot better indeed. I go for all strength gems cause I m alrd at 41.30% crit unbuffed in Battle Stance without any crit gems.
Despite all of the above though I would have to harshly admit that whats the most probable issue is your rotation. I dont have the power to check and analyze your report at the moment to determine where its faulty but I did 3800 dps on my 1st patchwerk raid at 80 with ONLY blue gear with 170 hit raitin and 4 expertise. So doin less than that with decent gear and exp and hit raitin at decent lvls, only tells me that there is somethin in the playstyle needing fex...and plz dont think I am mean...just trying to be rough so I dont hide my honest opinion from you with a sincere intention to only help u question yourself and try to improve
Ok on the frost dps subject I have copied one of my guild mates builds and this is before the patch I had just hit 80 and i had only one or two epics one of them was a Titansteel Destroyer and i dont recall the other but I did naxx that day and again this is before the patch and i was up there in the dps and damage charts with one of our guild hunters while I was raid buffed. Now after the patch i have now maybe one or two more epics and yes i do realize that hunters were nerfed but I pass the hunter in dps and damage the link to the build i have is
Judging from the numbers tonight, clipping is DEFINITELY hotfixed. Surprisingly, it took under a week for the little whining fucking retadins and warriors in arena to get that pushed through. If only we could get Rolling ignites correct with such quickness.
As far as I know, the issue with crypt fever and similar buffs from other classes should've been fixed with 3.0.8 (apparently isn't) ... just redid the testline and apparently there was someone eventough i can't recall...
