    50-75% Blood Plague uptime sticks out to me. Also, not a 2h Frost expert, but the significantly more Frost Strikes than Obliterates might be something.
    Call to arms, the trumpets sound
    Hand puppets storm the base, flags up now cannons rage
    All clowns head for the rear, slingshots fire to the air
    Toy horses start the charge, Robot chessmen standing guard
    Crossfire to the marionettes, Slip into the edge of death...

    You just need to get a better uptime to your blood plague and use your CDs on cd. Other than that you are doing good.
    Death Knight -> Italiandk
    Shaman -> Cashrain
    Paladin -> Healyoutru
    Priest -> Ängel
    Monk -> Skadoosh
    Mage -> Icydeath

    thanks!


    If you dont mind me asking, what CD's are you talking about specifically? Also, what is a good dps to shoot for?

    As said before, mainly your blood plague uptime needs to be better. The disease being present buffs your obliterates by 12.5%.
    You are also using blood tap. 2H frost uses runic empowerment since it returns more runes and the randomness doesnt hurt that much.
    Third, the CD's Italiandk mentioned. Pillar of Frost, Raise Dead are the cooldowns you want to hit pretty much as soon as they come off cd. Your trinket(s) aswell, probably a good idea to macro Lessons of the Darkmaster to Raise Dead since they are just as long and Raise Dead will benefit from the extra strenght. The final CD is empower rune weapon, try to use it twice on each fight.

    I cant see if you use plague leech in the logs myself, if you dont like how it works (i dont) Unholy Blight isnt that much worse, in quite a few cases better even.

    hunty already answered to your first question.

    About the second one is hard to determine a good dps (especially for gara'jal since if you go into the spirit world your dps will be messed) but something like 55k for gara'jal and 60k for kings could be considered a "good" dps, in my opinion, (I'm talking about DPSe, not DPS) with your current gear.
    Death Knight -> Italiandk
    Shaman -> Cashrain
    Paladin -> Healyoutru
    Priest -> Ängel
    Monk -> Skadoosh

    As already mentioned, you need to keep track of your diseases better., I would recommend DDR aka DocsDebugRunes.

    Download Link or downloaded through curseclient.

    Yup the Diseases are the massive thing that stands out, things like macros can be learnt after you sort your diseases out!

    There are tons of tools to help you keep track of diseases, I personally use 2 weakauras. One timer, and one visual when its not up. For this, like for most things, nothing is better or worse as long as it works for you. People seem to find weakauras hard to configure, so maybe its not too handy to start with. I never found it harder than other addons though, personally.

    Actually blood tap is simming better now, it allows you to set up you km proc with oblits and suffers from rng less.

    Also, unholy blight is not better, ever, 1 saved rune every 1 and a half minutes isn't better than 1 free rune every 30 seconds.

    First off trade bloodtap runic empowerment. Then id gem 80 str/160 hast in all just to get ur haste up.
    Ur diseases are what keep ur dps consistent especially in mobile fights. Us every freezing fog u get with hb. Dont be afraid to hit outbreak when its off cd or when witching back to a main target.
    Lastly itemization is the biggest threat or ur dps atm. Prioritize Str>hit/Exp>Haste>crit>mastery. Basically u don't want master as 2h frost or unholy it helps in aoe fights alot but isnt beating haste or crit so try to avoid it. Getting haste above 50% is a good goal. Crit to 12% while having hit/exp capped.
