Simc dps versus live dps

5 posts in this topic

I did a simulationcraft on myself with current gear and it says I should be about 73k. Meters running during raid show me at about 50k to 55k at most. Does this sound like the correct margin of error for perfect execution versus real world? Should I theoretically be higher than that in actual dps and I might be missing something?

 

I am 716 ilevel equipped. 

 

First post here, just looking for any help. Let me know if need any other information.

 

Normal Mannoroth log - http://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/combatlog/ea9fe101-b98b-4b96-91a2-f086528451d9/report/7#v=0,d=0,c=50

 

Normal Archi log - http://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/combatlog/ea9fe101-b98b-4b96-91a2-f086528451d9/report/13#v=0,d=0,c=50

 

Armory - http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/kargath/Felrune/simple(it currently shows blood which is what I logged out in. Will switch later.)

first, never look at your simmed dps. It assumes absolutely perfect rotations perfect execution 100% uptime and even then they frankly aren't always correct or all that good. There were times where sims preferred certain builds but in live play other builds just trumped them all together.

 

2nd. warcraft logs is a bit better of a place to get logs from. the ones you linked aren't bad but are lacking in a lot of information that warcraft logs can do.

 

3rd. Manny and Archi are just kinda rough on DK fights as far as dps goes. They are usually my worst just from movement mechanics and having difficulty lining stuff up so keep that in mind.

 

as far as what I can see, the only first glaring place for improvement is your disease uptime. now with various changes diseases aren't as powerful as they once were but they are still valuable. averaged together you only have about 70% disease uptime on both bosses. With frost howling blast spam and plague strike to dump unholy runes you should have 100% uptime. or at least high 90%. 

 

I also feel your soul reaper count could be a bit higher. once the boss is 35% soul reaper should be your number 1 priority. mannoroth is a big meat shield so there is a lot of time spent in his kill range. archi i can sorta see not getting off as many because after 1st banish you have to deal with infernals and breaking chains and not getting hit by meteors, so a little more understandable.

 

so better diseases more soul reaper. I couldn't see how many times you used plague leech but that is valuable to maximize its usage. I might also recommend switching to blood tap over runic empower. It gives you on demand runes and specifically in kill range always guarantees you can have a rune for soul reaper to poop it again. Also try and pick up empty drinking horn off of many. It has great synergy with dw frost.

 

So in general you are doing fairly well but these two fights are a bit bad for dps measurement. and frankly no hellfire boss really is a good meat stick measuring boss (maybe socrethar.... maybe). But for manny and archi there are a lot of mechanics and alternate targets and that, so always focus more on mechanics then raw deeps. otherwise there are a couple areas previously noted where you could improve a little :D, hope i helped.

Thank you for your reply!

 

I will get some logs to warcraft logs and see if it doesn't show better. The ones I linked were older than I thought they were. I didn't realize I didn't have new ones running. 

 

I tried Blood Tap but switched back to Runic Corruption because it is hard to hit with my keyboard setup. I am going to get an MMO mouse and put Blood Tap on there. My current mouse has all my interrupts on it and it is out of buttons :(

 

I think there might be something missing with my priority rotation in there. You brought up using Unholy runes on Plague Strike when I was taught to use Unholy on Obliterate. I use Obliterate when I have a Killing Machine proc and not enough runic power for Frost Strike. It always feels like I am using it more than I want to. I have read of people storing Runic Power to use on Killing Machine proc but I get Killing Machine proc right away almost. No time to store it seems. 

 

I thought I have been following all the wonderful guides out there but it just feels like my DPS is way low so trying whatever I can to bring it up. Thank you again!

For dual wield obliterate usage now has been debated a lot. From combining information from various sites, I only use obliterate when I have 2 unholy runes available, a km proc, and low rune power. It's basically thrown in, in order to keep up your 2 piece bonus. After that all km procs should go to frost strike.

I think my problem might then be that I will still use Obliterate with a Killing Machine proc to get Runic Power.

 

I have the T18 4 set bonus so I figured it was OK because the chance of consuming the Killing Machine with Obliterate was low.

 

I guess my confusion comes from when to use Obliterate and with what. If I have a Killing Machine proc and not enough Runic Power to do Frost Strike, and no Unholy runes, what do I cast? Howling Blast? If I want to avoid using Obliterate, how do I use it to get a Rime proc. 

 

If I had Blood Tap, I might be able to get out of that but while I don't I want to make sure I make the right decision.

 

Sorry if I am dense but I just have that feeling that I have been doing something wrong and want to correct it. I got new logs from Heroic Mannoroth fight but keep forgetting to upload them so I will add that to this post tonight. 

 

Thank you

      Who we are
      <Hollow> is a semi-hardcore guild created by a group of friends, experienced players, that raided HC together in WOTLK. We reunited and transfered to the same realm to create a guild, or more accurately, a home. We keep a very friendly environment in and out of raids, oftenly joining discord to chat even if we aren't doing anything. Guild activities include but are not limited to mythic dungeons, mythic + and raiding.
      Our goals
      Our current progress is 7/7HC and 2/3HC. Our goal is to form a better composed raid team and down ToV HC. During which we want to get everyone experienced and geared for mythics and next content. Mythic raiding is also in our plans once we get the right group for it.
      What we are looking for
      We are currently planning to expand and size up our raid team to progress ToV HC and in the not too distant future, Mythic raiding. We are strongly prioritizing priests of any spec, and healers are highly considered in general.
      RDPS: Most wanted all (Spriest); MDPS: Also welcome; HEAL: Need one or two (dont have monk, Dpriest, Hpala); TANK: Main tank spots filled, still we could use one extra with DPS spec. Less geared people are also welcomed. 
      We also welcome social players as it can help our guild expand even further in other aspects of the game.
      Our raiding schedule
      Our current raiding schedule is 3 raids a week for 3 hours:
      Wednesday 8pm to 11pm server time - ToV Heroic Sunday 8pm to 11pm server time - EN Heroic Tuesday 8pm server time - ToV Normal The guild is using DKP system
      NOTE: We have added a catch up system for new recruits. When you get past the trial phase and join the ranks as an official member of our guild, you also earn 200 dkp as bonus. If thats not enough we will consider more options. We wont leave anyone behind no matter how new while at the same time, drawing a line for our core, active raiders.
      Thank you for taking your time reading through this post. If you have any further questions or if you are interested in joining us, feel free to contact us in game on Solidz, Hotbez or add us on BNET at Solidus#2642, bez#21193.

      Hi, I used AksMrRobot to sim my char and as I thought I'm underperforming for my ilvl according to mrRobot I should do around 300k dps with my ilvl 869 gear but I'm sitting on 200k-240k-ish I do know that I don't have any enchants on my gear which is a dps loss but I think the enchats will give me maybe only 10k which means there still 50k left which I'm missing.
      I mainly do Mythic+ dungeons but from time to time I do the raids or at least the Emerals Nightmare
      My latest log is available through this link warcraftlogs
      here is my armory link 
      I think the main issue is my bad momentum usage but maybe I'm wrong. 
      I'm looking forward to your feedback

      Who We Are
      We are a former hardcore guild who finally grew up! Want to still progression raid but don’t have 3 nights a week to devote to WoW? We might be the guild for you! The raiding core is ex TBC/WOTLK raiders who just don’t have the time to raid during the week any more due to real life.
      We raid at the weekend, though people are still on during the week doing arena/mythic + etc!  
      We are currently looking to move into Mythic raiding and are looking to expand the raid team with players with similar goals and time schedules as ourselves.

      Here on Icy Vein's under the Arms Warrior DPS guide here is the recommended relic choice. I was under the impression that [Exploit the Weakness] was our top priority even if it meant 20-25iLvl difference. Since it would increase the proc chance by a factor of x2 with all three relics increasing Tacticians...
      Why does this guide on Icy Veins say otherwise? Is it because the information is out of date and hasn't been updated?
       
      (Original Link: http://www.icy-veins.com/wow/arms-warrior-pve-dps-artifact-talents-traits-relics)

       
      Unfortunately this is not someting I can just run a Sim on because I don't currently have any [Exploit the Weakness] relics.
