Concerns: Uptime, Stat Cap, Rotation Direction, DPS/DMG

 

Hey All, I normally Main Spec Prot and have no issues so ive decided to Start DPSing as Ret, however to me my damage/dps is terribad, i havent done any real extensive parsing for numbers etc so i have raid logs to kinda help paint a picture.

 

About me and raiding is a Mechanics< Everything else if i messing up a mechanic im already all over my own case. So i can do mechanics its just everything else lol. Ive Read the guides and i just dont know where im going wrong

Hello Phoenix, do you have any more recent logs? It's hard to determine your DPS for these logs since you were using a tanking trinket (Cursed Plume) and a Saberblade Talisman. While the Cursed Plume isn't terrible, the static bonus armor does nothing for you and having static strength is actually quite a large boost. Also, since you are transitioning from Prot, it's not too big a deal yet until you feel as if you're are underperforming to a very high degree.

 

I noticed you are using ability_paladin_seraphim.jpgSeraphim for this fight, which isn't terrible for Iskar only because before Iskar does Shadow Escape, he is completely alone, but you were only able to maintain about 25% uptime on it, which is about only half as much uptime you should be getting (you should aim for 45-50%). I would recommend using ability_paladin_finalverdict.jpgFinal Verdict for this fight since add management is a very important aspect of Iskar. During add phase, always weave ability_paladin_finalverdict.jpgFinal Verdict and ability_paladin_divinestorm.jpgDivine Storm, even if you don't have ability_paladin_divinestorm.jpgDivine Crusader up. The ability_paladin_finalverdict.jpgFinal Verdict buff is a critical part of improving your AoE potential. I would, however, say it's okay to spam ability_paladin_divinestorm.jpgDivine Storm when you don't think you'll have time to get another ability_paladin_divinestorm.jpgDivine Storm after using ability_paladin_finalverdict.jpgFinal Verdict.

 

Also, since you have some time, switch to spell_holy_righteousnessaura.jpgSeal of Righteousness right after Iskar uses Shadow Escape. It was also help your AoE a lot. This is even more so when you get Empty Drinking Horn, which is a solid 10% boost to your DPS. Without it, you'll always be about 8-10% lower than DPS who do have it.

 

I also can't tell if your flasked or not? If not, then I would use a strength flask. Don't underestimate 250 strength. Your stat distribution looks fine. You have quite a bit of haste, but that's not a huge loss. 20% crit is good since you have 10% multistrike. And you have a decently high mastery. I would recommend switching slowly to multstrike above crit, but they are both very close on sims, so the difference can be negligible, but I feel multistrike is more consistent.

 

I can't see too much information on your rotation, so it's hard to help you there unless you provide a little more info yourself. I do see that your spell_paladin_hammerofwrath.jpgHammer of Wrath damage is quite low. It should never be higher than your melee strikes, which makes me think that you're not using it nearly as much as you should. Since you had 2pc Tier, it should almost always be 2nd or 3rd. In this case, 3rd is okay to ability_paladin_divinestorm.jpgDivine Storm since it's an add fight.

 

I'd like to help you more, but since it's been a week since then, I'd like to hear some of your comments and maybe see some updated progress? Also, if you can, use Warcraft logs since Mr. Robot doesn't contain as much information.

      Former Blood and Frost DK, back in action.  Things have changed a LOT since I had to spec into DW Frost ;)
      Here is the armory:
      http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/malfurion/Nuadda/advanced
      Here is my current rotation for World Quest/overworld play(outside of dungeons):
      HB to Open->OB->OB->RW->FS until RP exhausted/OB is available(I forget to use PoF unless I am going after a rare or planning a aoe burst).
      Should I use KM procs for FSc since I have that in my spec?
      I'm having the following main issues:
      1. I seem to be Rune starved, so that's why I am hitting FS so much.
      2. Survivability can sometimes be an issue if I am not using RW on each cooldown.
      3. Recently got this as my first legendary, unsure if I should actually use it:

      So far the plan is to gather heroic upgrades and patch the class gear, but will welcome any suggestions

      Hey all I'm a returning player and finally hit 110 on my death knight yesterday. I am currently playing a frost dk, but I'm not enjoying it as much as I thought I would. Unholy on the other hand looks pretty sweet... but from what I hear they are in a bad state atm. This might be to early to speculate, but anyone know if buffs are coming this next patch? Should I reroll now before I invest thousands of AP into frost relic? As cool as unholy looks, don't want to play a doomed spec...

      Hi guys, I'm new here in Icy Forums but always checked the site for information, you guys do an awesome job. I'm dpsing in Legion as a Ret Pally and I'm having a little issues with dps constancy. I can easily do a burst of 300k in one target fight, but when I look overall my dps is always near 190k. I will put some info to see if you guys could help me to see what I'm doing wrong.
      My armory Armory - Saskov (Gallywix)
        The rotation I usually do is: (burst) Crusade, Greater Judgment,       if AoE:  Wake of Ashes - Divine Storm - Crusader Strike - Divine Storm - Blade of Justice - 
       
      Divine Storm - Crusader Strike
      Single Target: Blade of Justice - Crusader Strike - Templar's Verdict or Justicar's Vengeance when low life Wake of Ashes to fill Blade of Justice cd
      A log of my guild 7/7N EN https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/68NG1QXkH2Zpg4jb/#type=damage-done&source=11 Really don't know what I can do to improve it, I had a complete revamp of stats (I was advised to focus Haste till 22% > Crit = Vers > Mastery)
      I thank you guys since now.
