Long time lurker, first time poster here asking for some advice on raising my dps to a more acceptable bracket because the guild I'm in is starting Heroic HFC and everyone has to do their part. But mostly because the mages in my raid group are crushing the dps charts and my self esteem.
I'll start by putting the necessary info on the post, here's my character page with the equipment I'm currently using (I don't have mane good trinkets so I don't swap out unending hunger with Rolling Pebble):
And here's my past performances:
Despite there being some halfway decent results (Tyrant Velhani on the 28th), I'm averaging a %lvl bracket of 30 and 42k dps (on the good days).
This wouldn't bother me so much if it was not for the fact that currently:
-I have the 4 piece T18 set bonuses
-The rest of the slots are filled with Mything Dungeon goodness, ranging from 710 to 725.
-I have a warforged Empty Drinking Horn.
So I can't blame my low numbers on gear alone anymore, which means that the problem is me.
The boss guide I have been using has been this one:
The rotations, talents and glyphs have been copied down to a T, although, to avoid desynching my cd's I always use Final Veredict with Execution Sentence and Avenging Wrath every minute if I feel like the battle is too hectic to keep track of everything.
Another thing about me is that I have no keybindings whatsoever. It's something that I admit but until I know how much time I can save on memorizing my bindings I'm not in any rush to start training. Consider it one of my many flaws.
And now we come to the reason why I'm asking the forums for help: I'm missing something and I have no idea what it is (please don't say "a brain") so I'd like to ask the more seasoned vets to rip me a new one and tell me what should I be working on ASAP.
Hey! Thanks for reading my thread and i hope that you can help me out.
As right now My guild is literally "bullying" me into doing more damage and it isn't nice, however i believe they are right in the matter of my damage isn't up to what it should be so I would love anyones help in finding what is wrong or not worn with my mage. In the logs below is HFC HC with my guild and I have my t18 2set and got to 1300 haste. personally i think that i focus too much on carrying others on mechanics than going for meters.
please help me be a better mage xD
I have a few questions about how to go about the combat 4 set procs. I'm currently ilvl 691 and have been doing well as combat, but I feel like there is more to the 4 set.
It happens quite often that I get 3-5 4set procs in a row, which inevitably will cause me to energy cap. I play with Anticipation to handle my insight level better.
Situation 1: I'm at 5 CPs and 5 Anticipation stacks, advanced into stage 3 shallow insight, I cast eviscerate and proc the 4 set so I am back at the same amount of CPs and anticipation stacks, however now my energy is close to capping / capped and my next eviscerate will surely waste energy.
Do I cast sinister strike, and waste energy and potential 2 combo points to advance to moderate insight, or do I eviscerate until I'm able to cast sinister strike again to dump some energy?
Situation 2: I have 5 CPs, 3 anticipation stacks, and sitting at level 3 moderate insight. I sinister strike to gain deep insight, proc the extra combo point, and now have full CPs, and full anticipation stacks. Killing spree has 20sec left on cd, I hit eviscerate twice, proc 4 set each time, so now KS came off CD, I still have all my CPs and all anticipation stacks AND I'm energy capped. Do I killing spree despite being energy capped, or do I eviscerate as often as possible, and then hit killing spree? what if the next 2 eviscerates proc the 4 set too?
I can't count on god procs, but if it happens, that would be 40 seconds I could shave off my next killing spree cd.
it just seems like so much energy goes to waste.
thoughts? I really appreciate any feedback and answers.
Have you lost that Loving Feeling?
How is 6.1 treating you and your Tier bonuses?
As Holy, that 2pc is feeling really nice. As predicted by most of the world wide interwebz, it crushed any attempt the 20% buff to Clarity of Purpose had to be a starter in our lineup as we work our way through Blackrock Foundry. 4pc Holy has its limited place on fights like Gruul and Kromog for PoH, otherwise it is seeing a jump in hasted Heal on other encounters. All in all, I would have rather seen Clarity of Purpose be relevant but the gap is slowly closing on Discipline. Enough for the narrow minded Raid Leaders' Red-Headed Step-Healer, let’s see how your older, wiser, stronger sibling is doing.
Now Discipline, how can I put a positive spin on this. Even with the 10% nerf implemented to PWS, it is still worth it to cut short the 2pc bonus mid channel, if will overheal, and cast that new, weaker, PWS! Does that sell you?! Let me try again. The Discipline 4pc will reduce the cost of our old SoO favorite, outside of /AFK-Atonement, ..Spirit Shell. Prayer of Healing does so well combined with Empowered Archangel, you couldn't wait to see your old friend and hope its reruns would play on in perpetuity in your rotation. Be honest, did you approach Gruul with renewed vigor like I did. Placing that point into Spirit Shell with a sense of pride or even a Rite of Passage for Discipline to take it back, place it in your arsenal, and Just Win.
"Please wipe, please wipe", I whispered. I didn't line up Archangel after the 3rd tank swap and I spent the next 2 Inferno slices holding AA to get back in sync, that had to be it. OK, here we go, second chance. NO, I don't know how the tank died.
Well, Gruul died, so did Kromog, and the rest of the bosses we thought Spirit Shell would have a chance on. Along with their deaths, so died Discipline's dreams of adding another button to our PWS rotation this patch. Swap back to your Mythic Highmaul gear or Blackrock Foundry Cache loot; sit all but 2 of your 5 tier pieces. Blizzard be damned if we are giving up the 2pc though! You never know how many times during trash your tanks will need the full channel of Penance, and think of all the time/mana your saving building Evangelism. Yea, you show those tier pieces who’s boss of our button mashing and that coveted spot in your Equipment Manager “Raid.”
"Anyone have a Tome to give me? I need Power Infusion back. Maverick told me Spirit Shell has lost that loving feeling, it’s Gone, Gone, Gone...."
