I Could use some help with my DPS

Spec:Unholy

 


 

Question: I feel like I should be doing ALOT more DPS for the gear that I have but I can't seem to go higher than 50k. I have the opener burst down mostly but keeping the damage up seems to be trouble. I've played using defile, breath, and necroblight but find that breath is usually where I do more DPS. Any tips on how to pump out better numbers? When I have breath I usually try to take advantage of using AMS to absorb magic damage for extra runic power but It doesn't seem to be helping to much.

 

 

EDIT: gonna try DW frost. I don't think I have the gear for unholy

So, I enjoy digging through logs to see what I could do better, and since you posted yours I figured I'd see what I could do to help you out. I didn't look through all of your logs but I dug into your Iron Reaver fight a bit since it is a simple one to pull apart. I noticed a few things that should help bring your DPS up if/when you decide to come back to playing Unholy.

 

1) You wasted a rune to plague strike after getting into melee range instead of using outbreak on the way in. Its not a big DPS lose but its a simple thing to fix as well.

2) You are running Breath of Sindragosa for the fight but you spent runic power to cast a death coil at 6.6 seconds into the fight. You need to save all of your runic power until after your first Breath of Sindragosa is finished to maximize its uptime.

3) You got procs of Sudden Doom at 7.8, 15.4 and 22.9 seconds (3 separate procs) but didn't use any of them until after a 4th proc (at 24.7 seconds) came up. They don't stack, you need to make sure you use them.

4) You reached a full 12 stacks of Blood Charge at 19.5 seconds into the fight but you didn't use your first Blood Tap until 33.3 seconds into the fight. If you are having trouble properly managing your blood tap, switch to runic corruption instead.

5) Ring was used (not by you, but if you aren't using it then you have to line your rotation up with whoever is using it to maximize your dps) at 2 seconds into the fight, but you didn't start your Breath of Sindragosa until 10.5 seconds in and only got 13 ticks of Breath despite having a heroism active. You want to try to start Breath as soon as the ring is used and to keep Breath going for the full 15 second duration of the ring, at a minimum. If you aren't able to do that, consider staying with Necrotic Plague or Defile instead.

 

Overall your gear isn't bad, but you will want to pick up your 4 set bonus as soon as you are able. On top of that I strongly suggest putting in the effort to get yourself a Convulsive Shadows trinket from Iron Maidens in BRF. Even the heroic version (685 iLVL) of the trinket will be better than either of the trinkets you are currently using.

 

All around you aren't doing badly, Unholy is a challenging spec to master and you have the concept well in hand, you just need to polish up your rotation a bit.

 

I hope this helps you out and good luck!

      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.

      ok need some help here. I have followed the Fury guide from this site and almost have the stats in alignment with what is suggested from it. I have been trying to upload combat logs from Ask Mr Robot but I keep getting some error where I cannot add my gear to it and then it tells me to close app. So this is what I have so far. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/hyjal/Tabock/advanced
      As for my rotation i hit rampage when it procs all the time, I also use Bloodthirst and rarely use furious slash. I use it more it seems as a filler. I do however use the talented version of Raging Blow, it does a lot of dmg. I really seem to WW a lot when in doubt a lot, a lot. I also use Bladestorm usually when my cd's are active.
      If I make Rampage and Raging Blow up at all times and when I do I see a slight boost in my dps. but otherwise it is trash right now...:(
      So I will need help if somebody would be so kind as to maybe give me some direction toward uploading combat logs. Thank you ahead of time for your help.

      I hope that links right - I have no logs on Butcher/etc, but this is the most stand-still raid encounter I can think of. I hope that's okay! I didn't have to do more than a little moving, and this is pretty indicative of my DPS in most encounters that aren't a lot of cleaving or movement (My dps is pretty bad in fights like Xul'H or Iskar as well, but they're probably a lot harder to read)

      As you can see, I have a mix of mythic dungeon, heroic and normal HFC gear, and a few pieces of baleful I'm not yet rid of.
       
      normalized stat weights given by my own simcraft runs are
       
      Int 1
      Spell Power: .89 (due to archmage's ring)
      Haste: .57
      Mastery: .67
      Multi: .62
      Crit: .57
      Versa: .51
       
      My rotation is the same as the one listed on icy veins/altered time/etc -> I do admit that I make some mistakes, sometimes I split a cast on a crystal and it despawns before the cast lands, sometimes I supernova when I could have held it for my next crystal, etc.
       
      1. Prepot on pull
      2. stack Arcane Charges to 4/let boss get positioned
      3. Drop crystal + arcane power
      4. PoM Arcane Blast + 2 Super novas
      5. Arcane Blast/Arcane Missile to 50% mana
      6. Evocation
      7. Stack AC to 4
      8. Expend missile charges
      9. Arcane Barrage
      10. Repeat 7-9 until evocation has 20sec left
      11. Drop Crystal + charge and commence burn phase
       
      With Supernova being used on cooldown when I'm not really close to 50% mana or have a really good reason to hold it (like crystal coming up soon, or lots of adds soon)
       
      I realize that I only have the 690 ring and don't have any good trinkets, which is a big deal, but that can't account for all of my crappy DPS - I'm looking at my log rankings and they're all <20th percentile for my ilvl, so I must be doing something wrong.
       
      Any help would be great!

      Hello,
       
      We have a new Unholy DK  in our raid team. His DPS is consistently on the lower end but we don't have anyone who can look at his logs and pinpoint what the issue is. Any help would be appreciated. (I have his permission to post here)
       
      Logs:

      Armory (it looks like he logged in PVP gear though) -- he plays unholy in the raid:

      Hello, I made my monk fairly recently and am decently geared but my dps is still low according to simc.i should be doing around 30k but I'm around 21-23k. It's worth noting that I did not have my mythic weapons on this kargath attempt.
