hey there,

 

my guild is currently doing its first steps in highmaul mythic. kargath is already defeated, the next encounter are the twins. my co-tank is a paladin with a slightly lower item-level, but i'm getting much more damage from kargath's impale (i guess i missed one or two cooldowns :/). for the gear i already read that crit is better than mastery?

 

are there any other things i'm fucking up?

 

here are our logs: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/guilds/18593

and my armory profile: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/malganis/Nqrlz/advanced

First of all, you linked the advanced version of your armory and that always makes me irrationally happy.

 

Your enchants seem a bit erratic though. You have one Gift of Crit, but the rest of your enchants are Gift of Mastery and you have mastery gems as well. I'd recommend crit for all of that, but if you prefer mastery you may want to consider replacing your cloak enchant. If you don't feel like doing that, it's really not a big deal since mastery and crit are very close in priority.

 

I noticed recently that WCL doesn't seem to be factoring Resolve into the calculation for average SBar size, so I'll calculate what your no Resolve, 60 rage SBar size is from your character sheet. You have 5529 AP, 3900 Strength, and 769 Bonus Armor. If I factor in Improved Defensive Stance, Battle Shout, and Mark/Kings you have roughly 6338 AP. From there, the calculation for your base-line 60 rage SBar is (1.125*AP)*3.375. The first number is the scale factor that you'll find in the tooltip from Wowhead. If you look at the tooltip, it gives the 1.125 number for the 20 rage SBar then it says it scales with more rage. I went to a training dummy, got 60 rage, waited for any bonus armor procs to fall off, and used a 60 rage SBar. I wrote down the size of that barrier and divided by my character sheet AP times the 1.125 scale factor. This yielded the 3.375 number I used above. This is interesting and important to note because you're spending 3x as much rage to get 3.375x the barrier. This is why it is important to use SBar at 60 rage.

 

Okay, that was a lot of words, but I wanted to explain how I got all of these numbers. I actually learn quite a bit by doing logs assessments for others because it pushes me to do things like that to figure out coefficients and to learn to justify what and why I am doing things.

 

Back to the whole goal of this, your baseline 60 rage SBar will be about 24k.

 

As for your logs, I'm looking at the logs from January 21st.

 

The Butcher is my favorite fight to look at logs for because it gives a really good idea of CD, mitigation, rage, and GCD use. It's a basic tank-and-spank where you're taking damage the whole time, so I can easily see if uptimes are where they should be without trying to extrapolate when you were or were not tanking.

 

I'm being really wordsy tonight, so I hope you like that.

 

Your Heroic Butcher kill lasted 3:25.

 

From your Casts tab, I see that you had one Shield Wall use, one Last Stand, two Enraged Regens, two trinket uses, and three uses each of Bloodbath, Dragon Roar, Ravager, and Demo Shout. Both your offensive and defensive CD usage looks good. You probably could have fit one more Shield Wall in, but it's not a big deal. You seem to be rotating CDs well overall on this fight. I also saw two Vigilances, good!

 

From your Buffs tab, I see that your SBlk uptime was 49.62% so you're doing well there. From your Healing tab, I see that you used 9 SBars with an average size of 17.5k and a maximum size of 53k (this one counts Resolve). This is area of your logs so far that could use a bit of improvement. From before, your average size could have been up to 24k and I'd call it good or mostly good if your average size was around 23k or so.

 

On your Buffs tab, I also saw a Draenic Strength Potion. I'd recommend an armor potion because it gives you 1,500 bonus armor instead of the 1,000 strength from the strength potion. Thus, you get an additional 500 AP as well as a significant boost to your defenses.

 

From your Resources tab, I can see that you generated 1805 and wasted 65, or 3.6%. While that's not an egregious amount of waste, it's still something you could work to improve on.

 

For this length of fight, I'd expect to see around 136 GCDs. I see you used 146 GCDs. The difference is due to your haste and Lust lowering your GCD. Basically, you're making good use of your GCDs. Good work.

 

Next I'll look at your Twin Ogron kill. It took your group 5:10 to kill it.

 

You had 2 Shield Walls, 1 Last Stand, 3 trinket uses, 4 Demo Shouts, and 4 Enraged Regens. You probably could have fit in another Last Stand and Demo Shout, but you still had pretty strong defensive CD usage. You also had 2 Vig uses. I really like that you're thinking about your tanking buddy's life. Your offensive CD usage wasn't quite as good. You had 5 uses of Dragon Roar and Bloodbath, but only 3 Ravagers. Try to keep your Ravager synced with Bloodbath.

 

From your Buffs tab, I see an excellent SBlk uptime of 50.50%. I also see 9 SBars with an average size of 19k. Again, you could bring that up a bit.

 

From your Damage Taken, I see you took one stack of Blaze and one hit from Charge. While neither is horrible, it's still an area where you could improve.

 

Your rage usage was a bit worse on this fight. You generated 2370 rage and wasted 148, or 6.24%. Your survivability overall was good, so you probably could have used Heroic Strike to manage your rage waste a bit or put the rage into a few more SBars if you prefer.

 

I'd expect around 207 GCDs on this fight and you used 209, so you're still making good use of your GCDs.

 

Overall, you're doing well. You're making good use of CDs and SBlk and watching out for your cotank. The primary areas you could use a bit of improvement on are your SBlk size, your rage waste, and avoidable damage.

 

Keep up the good work!

      Hi,
      I've just finished normal with my main 890ilvl (54 points) prot tank and also with my 876ilvl (36 points) druid tank.
      My conclusion is the following:
      The protection warrior is taking way to high damage from almost all abilities except auto-attacks which are low anyway.
      Shield block doesn't work against any of the abilities in nighthold and doesn't help with any magical skills.
      Basically our block even with 2 set items, having aprox 65% crit block chance is useless in Nighthold.
      The fact that our main reduction ability except our 8k-ish armor is useless for all Nighthold bosses. Demo, LS, SW, SR are ok for stack abilities or strong abilities but they couldn't be frequent enough. The damage taken spikes are crazy...just crazy and I've kept IP 40-60% of the damage and decent 90% + bracket dps.
      Paladin tank and warrior tank used to be very similar in damage taken ( normal damage taken ), now paladin is taking 100 millions and warrior is taking 200-400 million on same boss. This is because their damage is percent damage reduction and that works for magical also, but our shield block is irrelevant. Also paladins block spells now.
      In regard to my 876ilvl druid, I've done Guldan solo tanking without any stress. I've done rest of bosses without a problem, only keeping 1-2 stack of ironfur up and using rest of my rage for the 30% reduction every 10 sec, and I won't even start with the amount of cds druids have. These runs showed me how warrior is 0 compared to paladin,druid and DK. 
      I would place warrior on last place under DK, as Shield Block is an irreleant ability in this raid. You can check logs and compare raids from EN and Nighthold. It seems that to be so-so with a warrior tank you would have to maximize versatility and ignore every other stat :|, maybe then you will start reducing some damage from this raid.
       
      I believe that even the first version of warrior tank from start of EN couldn't handle Nighthold as good as paladin,druid can now. They were just op at low level for being able to handle high mythic dungeons at low gear for stacking IP 2 million absorb, but they scaled bad compared to others and that IP would drop in 2 hits on Mythic EN content, making it so-so anywany.
       
      Post below if any ideas pop to mind related to the above problem. Thanks !

      Hello everyone
      My guild and I raided EN last sunday and cleared normal mode easy enough and because we still had time, we started a heroic run aswell. For HC, I started a log that includes the boss kills Nythendra, Il'gynoth and Dragons of Nightmare.
      I am able to extract quite a bit of information for healers and DDs, but it seems that I don't really know what to look for, when trying to determine MY performance as a Blood DK (Yovana). I'm sure the information is there, but when it comes to Tanks in general, I'm struggling a little bit.
      In general, I think I'm doing ok because I don't get complaints from the healers and I don't really die, but if someone could point out obvious mistakes or inefficiencies, that would be very helpful.
      What catches my eye is the rather high amount of overheal of DS with 40%. I know that this is not really good, but then again, if I'm not taking any substantial amount of dmg, I'm not gonna sit on my runes and instead deal dmg with DS. So that explains the overheal a bit.
      Note that we had to top off our group with random players (1 random healer and several random DDs).

      Thank you all for any help in this matter and have a nice day

      Hello all,
      This is my first post in this area of the forum and I was wondering if someone can help me.
      I've recently started logging my encounters - starting with my guilds ToV HC run.
      While I'm always usually in the top 2-5 people on the DPS meter during raids, the log I took for the ToV HC run show me to be in the lower percentiles for that fight for my gear level (879 equipped, 880 bagged). I'd appreciate it if someone could enlighten me and let me know if there is something wrong in my rotation? Anything is appreciated, I'd like to maximise what I can if there's more I can eek out of my spec!
      Log: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/4p1dqz73WD86jnRL/#type=damage-done&source=5 (it's a live log so it'll be constantly updating while this run is going)
      Log: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/68rytKvmMxH7RTkc#fight=17 (for some other information - here is my Kara clear for the week (with NB))
      Armory link: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/darkspear/Eaglie/simple
      If any more information is required please let me know!
      Thanks guys!

      Hey guys,  first time posting up some healing logs.
      I got into Legion a few weeks ago, and just did a normal emerald nightmare run, had some great dps in the group, but was hoping some of the resto druids here could give me a bit of feedback on my healing?
      Hopefully this links  to all of the bosses, Xavius was my best one.

      I am hoping someone can share their opinion on a very specific question I have about the Arms warrior rotation (FR build). It's all about the following situation which i encounter very often: Colossus Smash has been applied to the target, i have 1 or 2 stacks of Focused Rage, and Mortal Strike and Focused Rage are both coming off cooldown at the same moment. My dilemma here is whether i should cast FR just before MS so that MS hits harder, or if i should cast FR just after MS so that MS has a higher chance of resetting due to the extra 15 Rage i spent after it. 
      What i have decided to do for now depends on whether Shattered Defenses is up. When it is up, i use FR before MS so MS hits extra hard. When Shattered Defenses is not up, i use FR after MS. I should add that i have both the gloves and ring legendaries (lucky me), so Rage shortage is almost never an issue for me. 
      I hope i didn't confuse anyone, feel free to ask for clarification. Thank you
