Only 50k dps in raid

7 posts in this topic

Hello every one,

if i'm in a raid i only do 50k dps max as a fire mage.

so my question is what do i do rong because i see other mage's (arcane, fire or frost) get way better dps.

My talents:

Presence of Mind

Ice Barrier

Ring of Frost

Greater Invisibility

Living Bomb


My glyphs:

fire blast

Do you have any logs on world of logs that we could see? It would really help to see what you are doing right and what you are doing wrong.

If WoW Heroes is correct then I assume you're talking about LFR.

First thing to do would be to pay a visit to Mr Robot and hit the optimise button.

As for competing against other mages, is their gear comparable to yours? Are they flasking/eating food? Not that it's needed in LFR but would help their dps to be higher if you are not doing the same.

That said, at your gear level you should be doing more than 50k on most of the fights in Mogu'shan Vaults. Pre-casting is important, i.e. start casting that next fireball before the current one has completed, make full use of Heating up (ensuring you have Living Bomb up), Pyro! procs and don't forget about Alter time. If you're moving about a lot then maybe drop Presence of Mind for Scorch so you can always be casting.

As a fire mage, you should be speccing into crit rating straight after you've reached the hit cap. I see that you're .58% over the hit rating cap, which is a bit much. Download reforgelite, or use Mr Robot as stated above, and ensure that you're as little over the cap as possible.

While many will state otherwise, I personally find invocation to be a burden, and I find Rune of Power/Incanter's Ward very useful for certain fights (eg Rune of Power on Feng, as not much mobility is needed, and Incanter's Ward on Stoneguard, as damage is rather predictable on the fight). Invocation can make mana management a pain for novice users. As stated above, you should be interchanging your talents for specific fights, as this can mean a lot.

Ensure that you're constantly on top of your rotation, pre-casting spells, and ensuring that you don't miss out on a global cooldown. A world of logs will be very helpful to see what you're doing here, as >50k is standard on most raid encounters at the moment. :)
