Hello Djorkaeff,

checked your logs. here we go

 

Gruul:

- Sunfire uptime 91% -> Keep it up to close 100

- At bosspull you didnt Moonfire after CA, you did 3 Starfires before Moonfire.
00:00:01.260    Djorkæff casts Celestial Alignment
00:00:01.271    Djorkæff casts Void Shards
00:00:01.271    Djorkæff casts Nature's Vigil
00:00:01.676    Djorkæff begins casting Starfire
00:00:02.763    Djorkæff casts Starfire on Gruul
00:00:02.763    Djorkæff begins casting Starfire
00:00:03.904    Djorkæff casts Starfire on Gruul
00:00:03.904    Djorkæff begins casting Starfire
00:00:05.379    Djorkæff casts Starfire on Gruul
00:00:05.379    Djorkæff casts Moonfire on Gruul

 

- Although you know the correct opener, you havent played it. At bosspull you did 4 Starfires but only 2 of them where Empowered. Use Starsurge before you cast the 3rd Starfire

 

- And then you did cast Starsurge twice.

00:00:00.044    Djorkæff begins casting Starsurge
00:00:00.044    Djorkæff casts Starsurge on Gruul

00:00:01.260    Djorkæff casts Celestial Alignment
00:00:01.271    Djorkæff casts Void Shards
00:00:01.271    Djorkæff casts Nature's Vigil
00:00:01.676    Djorkæff begins casting Starfire  <- Empowered Starfire 1
00:00:02.763    Djorkæff casts Starfire on Gruul
00:00:02.763    Djorkæff begins casting Starfire  <- Empowered Starfire 2
00:00:03.904    Djorkæff casts Starfire on Gruul
00:00:03.904    Djorkæff begins casting Starfire  <- No empowered
00:00:05.379    Djorkæff casts Starfire on Gruul
00:00:05.379    Djorkæff casts Moonfire on Gruul
00:00:06.562    Djorkæff begins casting Starfire  <- No empowered
00:00:07.996    Djorkæff casts Starfire on Gruul
00:00:08.424    Djorkæff begins casting Starsurge  <- Starsurge 1
00:00:08.424    Djorkæff casts Starsurge on Gruul

00:00:10.179    Djorkæff begins casting Starsurge  <- 2nd Starsurge
00:00:10.179    Djorkæff casts Starsurge on Gruul

 

- Do not MACRO Inc and CA together. The same reason why you dont do this at Bosspull. INC has a GCD, where you wont be able to cast MF or SS or anything else for 1,5 secounds....Thats a 1,5 secounds loss of CA, your potion and your trinket.

00:03:29.228    Djorkæff casts Draenic Intellect Potion
00:03:29.525    Djorkæff casts Celestial Alignment
00:03:29.525    Djorkæff casts Incarnation: Chosen of Elune
00:03:29.544    Djorkæff casts Void Shards

 

- You did use your 2nd Inc/CA at 03:29 while being in Solar Eclipse. Thats a hugh dps loss. Wait until you reach (or about to reach) Lunar, then activate INC and CA (afterwards) and Nuke target with SS and empowered Starfire

00:03:29.228    Djorkæff casts Draenic Intellect Potion
00:03:29.525    Djorkæff casts Celestial Alignment
00:03:29.525    Djorkæff casts Incarnation: Chosen of Elune

00:03:29.544    Djorkæff casts Void Shards
00:03:29.544    Djorkæff casts Nature's Vigil
00:03:31.042    Djorkæff casts Sunfire on Gruul
00:03:32.159    Djorkæff begins casting Starsurge
00:03:32.159    Djorkæff casts Starsurge on Gruul
00:03:33.282    Djorkæff begins casting Starsurge
00:03:33.282    Djorkæff casts Starsurge on Gruul

00:03:34.366    Djorkæff begins casting Wrath
00:03:35.562    Djorkæff casts Wrath on Gruul
00:03:35.562    Djorkæff begins casting Wrath
00:03:36.729    Djorkæff casts Wrath on Gruul

 

- And as you can see above you did Starsurge again twice. No No!

 

=> In my opinion you have lost atleast around 4-5 k dps(e) in this fight

 

Just some short things about Oregorger:

- Low Dots-uptime. You can keep them also up while he is rolling. Just stay in the center area of the room. He will be in 90% of this phase in Line of sight...

- ...where you can also continue casting Starfires and Wraths to him

- 6:24 killtime but only 2 Incs/CAs. You could have done 3

- your opener here was better then at gruul but still false. After you use Inc you want to use either Starfire or SS...but only once...you did twice..then you used CA-> MF-> SS -> SF

- 2nd use of INC/CA was good. But you forgot to MF him first. (and again, do not use INC/CA as one macro)

 

 

proper macros would be:

CAmacro:

#showtooltip Celestial Alignment
/cast Celestial Alignment
/cast Moonfire
 

ShardofNothing+Berserking+pot+Starfire or Starsurge

/use 14
(/use Berserking)    <- youre not an troll forget that
/use Draenic Intellect Potion
/cast Starfire

/cast Starsurge

 

 

Good Luck and feel free to report back anytime

thank you very very much bonita smile.png

 

another question: in the opener i use CA when i am at the peak of lunar right ? or do i use it right away to get more starfires off ?

No problem, anytime.

You use CA when you enter Lunar (what you are doing when bosspull) and not at Lunar peak.

The reason why not at Lunar peak:
While having CA buff active, your CA grants you Bonus damage (100% Lunar Eclipse) the way as you would have an peak at the moment. So It doesnt mather where at Lunar you hit CA...
BUT ....

After CA buff fades from you, you will still then have a powerful Incarnation based Lunarphase going straight up towards Lunar peak (more DPS). Would you use CA at peak it would be a DPS loss after the CA buff fades, because your Lunar Eclipse gets weaker while moving to Solar

 

EDIT: the same is vaild at your 2nd / 3rd etc use of INC / CA in the middle of the fight

For Maidens I actually dont know it,....yet. Some much discussing about 6.1 changes, but not much logs / number given for a clear answer available yet

 

For me, I will stick to Euphoria tonight for testing purpose.. I wanna see if it is still good enough. Until next week / next ID there will be more data to analyse and then I will choose based on newest data

 

For you, as an "new to Moonkin" player, I would recommend you:
Use where you feel the most comfort with and where you can do a solid state of DPS without having issues in playstyle

 

After checking the 4 best Rankings for Maidens done yesterday by Bunnychaser, Bamba, Newguyit and Ayer I saw that 2 of them where using Solar Flare and the two others had BoP.

 

So I'd say I will use one of both. Probably BoP, just because I am not practiced well enough with an additional Spell to use (Stelar Flare). Need to practise this first at the dummys

Hello Djorkaeff,

So I was testing BOP on Maidens last Thursday night and I must say, I was pretty comfort with it. Although my Overall DPS(e) sucked, cause of being dead for a while and the necessary of a raid damage stop, I felt very OK with my DPS while living and damaging.
Next ID I will test Stelar Flare

Hey Djorkaeff,

 

really nice DPS on Gruul. You got yourself a 90% DPSRanking for your itemlevel-bracket and a total of 80%. really nice.

 

Theres two things i noticed for Gruul what you missed:

- As you already said, you Moonfire uptime was only 89%. dont miss to refresh them

- You forgot your 2nd use of Inc/CA/potion

 

Oregorger you did also very nice. 90% for you itemlevel bracket and total 77%

- SunFire Dotuptime 82%

- but really nice moving in p2 (rolling phase). You had him in range for most of the time being able to continue casting spells onto him

 

At Thogar you still have DPSissus, becuase of

- Dotuptime

- forgotten to use 2nd INC/CA/pot (you should use it when adds arrive with train)

 

At Beastlord you didnt perform well.

Here what you made wrong and what you could do better:

- keep them Dots and Starfall up on the spears at any time

- try to Sunfire the pack beasts when they spawn.

- 6:33 fight but you only used INC/CA twice. Hit it at 3:00 when CD fades (yes I know your guild did TimeWarp at 05:30, which means you wouldnt be able to INC/CA during TimeWarp if you use the at around 03:00. But it is more a DPSloss if you didnt use it 3 times). The day your Guild manages to kill him at heroic below 06:10 fight lenght you can save your INC/CA for Bloodlust/TimeWarp

- Do not waste an SScharge for Solar Empowerment at this Boss. Use if for Starfall only and if you can afford it for Lunar Empowerment only

- Dont INC/CA in Solar (you did at your 2nd INC/CA). Only use them in Lunar Eclpse

- Always reDOT spears with INC/CA up

- try to wait some seconds for Pack Beasts spawn to INC/CA again and DOT them (if possible)

      Who we are
      <Hollow> is a semi-hardcore guild created by a group of friends, experienced players, that raided HC together in WOTLK. We reunited and transfered to the same realm to create a guild, or more accurately, a home. We keep a very friendly environment in and out of raids, oftenly joining discord to chat even if we aren't doing anything. Guild activities include but are not limited to mythic dungeons, mythic + and raiding.
      Our goals
      Our current progress is 7/7HC and 3/3N. Our goal is to form a better composed raid team and down ToV HC. During which we want to get everyone experienced and geared for mythics and next content. Mythic raiding is also in our plans once we get the right group for it.
      What we are looking for
      We are currently planning to expand and size up our raid team to progress ToV HC and in the not too distant future, Mythic raiding. We are strongly prioritizing priests of any spec, and healers are highly considered in general.
      RDPS: Most wanted all (Spriest); MDPS: Also welcome; HEAL: Need one or two (dont have monk, Dpriest); TANK: Main tank spots filled, still we could use one extra with DPS spec. Less geared people are also welcomed. 
      We also welcome social players as it can help our guild expand even further in other aspects of the game.
      Our raiding schedule
      Our current raiding schedule is 3 raids a week for 3 hours:
      Wednesday 8pm to 11pm server time - ToV Heroic Sunday 8pm to 11pm server time - EN Heroic Tuesday 8pm server time - ToV Normal & EN Normal The guild is using DKP system
      NOTE: We have added a catch up system for new recruits. When you get past the trial phase and join the ranks as an official member of our guild, you also earn 200 dkp as bonus. If thats not enough we will consider more options. We wont leave anyone behind no matter how new while at the same time, drawing a line for our core, active raiders.
      Thank you for taking your time reading through this post. If you have any further questions or if you are interested in joining us, feel free to contact us in game on Solidz, Hotbez or add us on BNET at Solidus#2642, bez#21193.

      Hello, so I started playing DK at the launch of legion, and have enjoyed it so far. I was initially unholy but then changed to frost recently, and am enjoying both specs except for one thing, namely my performance. So there are three frost DK's in my raid and lately the other two are always towards the top of the meter while I'm towards the bottom. There is no large gear difference (I think they both have a couple ilvls on me, but I have the legendary belt), so I was wondering what I was doing wrong. Upon looking at logs I found they both casted significantly more spells than me on all fronts (FS, obliterate, etc.). I also noticed that I need to keep icy talons up more, but can someone tell me why I'm casting so many fewer spells than them (there is no large haste difference, the armory has us all at 30something% haste, even though one of them (Hungerghost) and I only have 20something, and I'm sure the same applies to the other DK), or if there is some other problem, then what is it and how can I fix it? Thanks.

      About
      Our goal is to have an active community during the week and successful progression during the weekends while maintaining a casual atmosphere. We started out the expansion as a bunch of players looking for something to do in our spare time and, after a hefty purge, have settled on doing more with that time.
      Raids (Server)
      Thursday 8pm - 11pm
      Friday 9pm - 1am
      Saturday 9pm - 1am
      Status (Pre-Purge. Expect More.)
      6/7 Heroic EN
      2/3 Normal ToV
      Misc
      Loot: Individual until we settle on a core roster
      Voice: Discord
      Recruitment
      At the moment we're in need of Druid/Sham/Pally/Priest heals as well as all DPS classes. Higher item level is of course better but anything above 850 to start out is fine.
