    actions+=/frost_strike,if=!buff.killing_machine.up&(Blood=0|Frost=0|Unholy=0)

    This says you should only frost strike if killing machine isn't up and you don't have any blood, frost, or unholy runes available. Hmm. How often does that situation come up? Would you be able to reliably react to it properly when it does? And the big question-- how much performance is that line worth? According to simcraft, that action is worth 0.6% of total DPS. But it's impossible. You'll never do it.

    Nobody actually plays that way. The way you actually play 2H frost is something like this:

    keep diseases up
    soul reaper when <=35%
    plague leech if you notice blood plague is <3s (and you aren't lazy like me and skipped PL)
    HB on rime
    obliterate whenever you won't cap runic power
    otherwise, frost strike

    And lastly, assuming that you are a WoW god and can reliably execute the simcraft profile every time while also not standing in the fire (which is fairly unlikely, I know I can't), it seems like a ton of work watching swing timers, etc, for a theoretical max gain of 0.8%.
    Ok let's assume you are right (even if you say it's a dps increase).

    Why the hell blizz should fix something that none should care about?
    Death Knight -> Italiandk
    Shaman -> Cashrain
    Paladin -> Healyoutru
    Priest -> Ängel
    Monk -> Skadoosh
    Mage -> Icydeath

    And lastly I think the big argument that started this was watching a swing timer - I would make the same argument in my last post on holding an OB for ~1 second for the swing to land to see if I get a KM.

    And you arrived at a ~1s delay by...?

    Choosing a number of my pleasing. I mean at most it'd be like 2 seconds. So the ~ is where I allowed for that difference.

    Waiting one second is probably a safe amount, taking into account the km delay, human reactions and potentially trying to fit in another gcd before your next auto attack.
