Re: My raid DPS

I wouldn't say impossible. We've been doing this combo since Legion, consistently.
It's the low crit that breaks this tactics. I assure you, I know how to get carpal tunnel from Flurry, but even if the hard cast lands on time the crit is not guaranteed. Which is a big dps loss.

Re: My raid DPS

OK my big concern with this hardcasting into Brain Freeze thing is that it doesn't work. It's more unreliable than people seem to think. I'm trying to do this on a traget dummy, standing still, at max range, and it still misses sometimes. Impossible to pull it off 100% of the time in raid... If this...

Raven addon vs Glacial Spike

Hi folks, Looking for some help with setting up the Raven addon. Is Glacial Spike treated as a buff or cooldown? I managed to show the icon as a "Cooldown", but it just shows the ready state. The icon doesn't change when Glacial Spike is actually available or used. I tried to add it as a buff "Glaci...

Re: What to do if Shard of the Exodar is not an option

Not sure if it as an issue for you as well. But I used quartz and had noticable input lag. Causing me to sometimes fuck up casts. Turns out the reason was quartz itself. Once I deleted it everything worked fine.
Are you using some other castbar in its place? Or does the standard one suffice...?

Re: Missing shatters

Same problem here. I've just been digging the logs to check this. I've learned that almost all of my hardcast+Flurry combos fail :o If I check the frostbolt end times and flurries here it's shown clearly: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/xg278RKAz9Z3fadW#fight=2&type=casts&source=4&view=timeline...

Re: Maxing dps (Frost)

Are you queuing your spells in the 400ms window just before a cast ends? Um... :? Can you elaborate? :?: I use Quartz that shows me the latency in the castbar. So I'm trying to cast my spells as early as possible (sometimes I can start casting even before the Quartz timer ends... so much for accura...

Distance moved: ≈277 yards

Yep, I have similar numbers on Garothi HC. Longer distance (I use Shimmer), but same percentage.

Re: I hate DBM :-(

If you load only DBM core part of the addon in your addon list, there wont be any timers. (every raid tier (xpac) has its own subaddon)
From my experience with DBM core only it only played the pulltimer sound. No timers, no warnings.
Aaaaah, bliss... that's exactly what I'm looking for. Thanks!

Re: Looking for some advice/pointers

I have 18% haste :shock: OK lol, then this is where I might be wrong... (same situation as the OP). I'm in 960 and do 1.5-1.7m in Antorus normal, and much less in heroic, even on single target fights. I have no idea why... :? but I have 34% haste, as I really hate 1.6sec Frostbolts... maybe that's ...

Re: Maxing dps (Frost)

you might want to throw all your fights into wow analyzer to check out your casting downtime, though. Thanks!!! I didn't even know there was such a thing... I always read the logs and tried to make sense of them myself. You are right - this is an issue on almost every fight, including low movement ...

Re: I hate DBM :-(

What is the meaning of having a Boss addon, if you don't want any of its features?
The only thing I really need it for is the pull timer.

Re: I hate DBM :-(

Have you tried BigWigs? I prefer it over DBM as I feel it is less in your face, but it still has the same functionality.
I will check it out, thank you. Do you happen to know if there's an option to mute all sounds in it? Or even to turn off everything but the pull timer?

Let me begin with saying that your user name betrays an exquisite taste in gaming ;-) As for Winter's Chill issue - I'm struggling with the same. I think it's actually quite hard to execute due to lag. I might be wrong... But the reason I suspect this is an issue is that bc I'm using Quartz, and I c...

I hate DBM :-(

Hi folks, As the title says, I really hate DBM, especially the sounds which I can't seem to be able to turn off. It's super distracting, takes ages to set up for each fight, and in general I feel it does a lot more harm than good (I play the game with sounds and am perfectly able to identify imminen...

Re: What to do if Shard of the Exodar is not an option

People see 40% or so in the Frozen Touch tooltip and think thats a flat 40% increase. Unfortunately it doesnt work that way. It's still sth to consider though, imo - translates to about +5% increase, which isn't bad especially in addition to Splitting Ice. But yeah, like you said, I still pref to k...

Re: my proc rate is crap

I've felt You can check and compare exact number of procs in the logs. Select your character and fight, and in the menu just above the charts you can switch from Summary (default) to Buffs , where you can see how many Brain Freeze and other procs you got during the fight. E.g. I got 33 BFs in a 6-m...
