Destruction Warlock 6.1

9 posts in this topic

Ever since the release of this expansion pack came out I have been trying to get my toon raid ready which includes getting my item level up, working on my damage per second, enchanting and gemming all my gear, and also attempting to work on some macros. I am currently item level 666 and my damage per second is around 15k unbuffed. So far I have gemmed multiple times along with enchanting multiple times. Right now I what is keeping me out of Blackrock Foundry is my damage per second. I have searched the internet and haven’t been able to come across the latest destruction warlock information. It is all geared towards either Demonology or Affliction. In the past askmrrobot.com has been my go to site for gear, enchanting, as well as gemming. Only thing is that every site that I have come across is different in their information or it’s very early. Here is a link to my character http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/terenas/Soulstream/simple. If that link doesn’t work you can find me on http://us.battle.net/wow/en/. My toon’s is Soulstream on US server and my realm is Terenas. Any and all help is appreciated to help me really crank out the damage per second.

My stats on this toon are

  • Intellect-  19.10%
  • Haste- +8.12%
  • Mastery- 41.54%
  • Multistrike- 19.05%
  • Versatility- .66%

If anyone knows what my stats should actually look like so I can work towards getting it there I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks again for the help and advice.

Reason your DPS sucks is because you think that stats = damage. All the regemming, enchanting, and gearing in the world won't fix mechanical issues. Gems/enchants/gear only account for 10-15% of your total DPS. 

 

666ilvl doing 15k DPS is REALLY far behind where you should be able to do. Your problems are mechanical, not statistical.

^up dated for 6.1. Read it. Do it. Log it. Bring the logs back and we'll find the problems.

I'll be working on the link later on tonight. Once I get cracking, How do I put the logs on this site to see where I go wrong? It's my first time reaching out to this site so step by step would be much better. I'll be sure to include the rotation that I currently use as well as the macro that I found online, and the talents that I use when I AoE and single target. Thanks again for the help.

It's in FAQ on site or DPS thread page 1 either.

Download client, log in game, type /combatlog. Proceed to punch stuff. Open up client afterwards, hit some buttons out there to upload fight.
??????
Profit. Enjoy dem graphs and numbers.

just got out of the raid. bear with me because i didn't use the wipe mode. I am currently using the spell flash addon instead of going back to the macros that i had originally set up. ill start off the fights using blood fury then getting into generating embers with immolate, conflag (at least once till the first one runs out of tics), incinerate, then another tic of conglag, then do the same thing over and over again till i have 3.5 embers then cast my dark soul *1 and followed by 3 chaos bolts. Now to try and upload the log that i just did in H HM.

 

Here is the log for our guild heroic highmaul run: http://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/combatlog/b0578deb-7818-43a4-a93f-7dae4f7c9a58/overview

 

Here is my toon in askmrrobot: http://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/player/us/terenas/soulstream

 

If I'm missing any info, please let me know. I tried two different talent variations for soulstream and i am not happy at all. I am a tailor so i can make the gear i need or the upgrades if need be to figure this out. once again thank you for the help. have fun and good luck.

It would seem you are missing a gem in your Trinket.

 

Otherwise, please refer to the guides that are stickied before making such posts. Your opener is completely flawed and I even added that right at the end.

 

I don't know how to read all the information on AMR Logs, but from what I can see:

 

Your immolate uptime is extremely low at 64%.

You didn't use a single potion. Neither before the fight or during it.

You are using Grimoire of Sacrifice, however I cannot see if it was actually applied; not sure if you can check this, however.

You didn't use your 10 minute Doomguard cooldown (why does everyone seem to forget this exists).

I cannot see how you used your Chaos Bolts / Shadowburns within procs, but you likely didn't see much luck with that either.

 

Also... You were thrown up into the crowd both times yet only managed to do an average of 70k damage, whereas all the others did substantially more. Judging by the logs you killed the first lot then jumped down immediately after the second Hurl. Did you go up with 0 embers or something?

What would be a better way to log the information that you need to see? I used AMR because i had that addon already installed to where i can upload my toon in there and make changes as needed if i get better gear. What would be a better way to log my combat information to this site?

I don't know why my immolate uptime is low. I was keeping an eye on the boss the whole time making sure that immolate was on him the whole fight. There was times when I would be dropping some trash that I probably didn't have my immolate up on my targets. I mainly use the battle flask that gives me intel. Should i be using potions as well? I'm not sure what you mean by "please refer to the guides that are stickied before making such posts. your opener is completly flawed and I even added that right at the end." this is my first time making posts to a Forum and i want to make sure that i do it correctly. sorry about that.

 

When i went in with gosac and charred remains i sacrificed my demon at some point in the fight to gain a boost. Either during the butcher fight I might have changed my talents to go back to what i had before because my dps only got worse. As far as going up in the stands during chain hurl, more than likely i went up in the stands without embers because i probably burned them on the boss before i went up. I went up in the stands twice and missed the third time i think.  When i was up there i was having keyboard issues cause my toon wouldn't go or face in the right direction of the targets.

Warcraft Logs is much better, in my opinion. 

 

Potions - yes. They are a huge DPS increase. You basically get two extra 25s trinket procs throughout the fight, one on the pull and another at your leisure (usually with the extra Dark Soul in execute phase).

 

The opener is in the guide. If you press back  you will be on the Warlock Forums Home Page. Near the top is a Destruction Guide. Read that and a lot of questions should be answered, including an opening 'rotation'.

 

Regarding stuff like Chain Hurl - you should have been watching your timers and prepared to have enough embers to AoE and shadowburn snipe beforehand. This is stuff you need to be proactive about and plan ahead for.

 

Not being able to do damage whilst up there - are you moving your camera with your mouse? It's very important that you have your right hand on your mouse at all times, moving your character and controlling your mouse, as well as using it to select targets.

The GoSac buff should be applied before combat (Its an hour long, like your Dark Intent). So during combat you shouldn't have any other demon other than your Doomguard out (And the GoSac buff)
