So my guild is 8/13 mythic right now and we're starting to hit dps checks. I'm reasonably good at staying near the tops of the meters, but looking at my rankings and such I know there is SO much more that I can do, and I'm not 100% sure where I'm going wrong. I've been toying around with stats and my crit vs mastery gemming and enchanting, and I noticed a HUGE spike when I swapped to pure crit at ilvl 731, but as I got more gear that wasn't itemized as well my dps stayed the same, and I swapped to pure mastery. Now I'm running with my enchants crit and my gems mastery, to test on this week's raid.

Hello there fellow owlkin
First of all - your gear. I want to stress out that it only gives you dps if you're doing your rotation corretly. Gear plays quite a little role in overall dps. 
However, I've opened your armory and can see that you're using Prophecy of fear. Afaik it is one of the crappiest trinket for us that exists. Int is not worthless, but other than that - you want to replace it. DSI (trinket from council) is kind of BiS and you want it for every fight in HFC. As for second trinket - you either need SoC (class trinket) for fights that you need that starfall cleave for adds or Sandman's Pouch (6/6) for single target non-demon damage ir heirloom trinket for single target demon fights.
As for your stats - Simcraft is your friend. Use it and test stuff. Currently you have +275 crit from enchants. I'm pretty sure that it is not worth it, and you'd better invest that ino haste, as you have only 745 haste compared to 1.6k enchanted crit. 
For your gameplay - learn to use potions. On hc archi kill you used 0 potions. 
Your dot uptime is quite low, your opener is a mess. Basically just read this thread and apply that to yourself. You're doing same mistakes, so I would just repeat myself :) 


So as I've mentioned - you need to get your rotation straight, that will improve your dps more than any gear change :)

Thanks for checking up on me--yeah, I still had Prophecy equipped from testing it on Iskar. Whoops. I normally run with DSI/SoC as my two. I believe on the Archi kill you're referencing I ran out of potions. Normally I try to use both.


Thanks for the link, I'll check it out!

Not just Archi fight, I looked at 4 or 5 fights, and on most of them you only used 1 potion. That's just a point to improve :)

      Union is an alliance guild on the PVE server Uldum, we are currently 4/7 mythic and looking to add 1 mage and 1 warlock to our ranks. Union has been around since Vanilla and has had the same core of raiders for years. We pride ourselves on raiding just 10 hours per week and being able to maintain top 150 US throughout the last tiers of raiding. We raid:

      Tuesday 8-11 EST (5-8 PST)
      Thursday 8-11 EST (5-8 PST)
      Sunday 7-11 EST (4-8 PST)

      We are looking for a mage that not only parses high, but has good survival instincts and always comes prepared to each raid.

      Hi, Does anyone of you know how much haste is enough for demon blades to proc properly ? I'm actually at 20% (crit 40% mast 20%) I can switch to 50% crit but I will have 6% haste. 
      There is now a debate whether the proc chance of demon blades during GCD is actually a buff or a nerf, if anyone could bring opinion on that too it would be great.
      thank you.

      ABOUT US
      We are a very social guild LFM for progression/semi-casual raiding and leveling. 
      When we say "semi-casual," we mean that we raid two days for three hours, can laugh about a wipe but are still serious about progression. We plan to do Normal raids (not for long) before going on to Heroic and Mythic.
      New players and all levels welcomed. We are VERY new player and new role friendly and have a few new players in the raid group already. We will work with you and get you trained up. So don't worry! 
      We do have some PvPers and an experienced RBG leader so PvP isn't out of the question.
      We're almost always on Discord and we joke around a lot. Some jokes aren't appropriate so keep that in mind. (Recommended 18+)
      Currently we are using the EPGP system ( The addon EPGP (DKP Reloaded), EPGP Lootmaster, DBM, and GTFO are required to be downloaded and kept up-to-date on raid nights.
      Fridays & Sundays 8pm - 11pm PST. (10pm - 1am Server Time.) NOTE: Flasks, foods, potions, and enchants will be provided for raiders on a first-come first-serve basis. People who contribute to the guild bank will also have preference. Guild repairs provided on raid nights. Trials will be provided with the aforementioned items if we can spare them after the main raiders. CURRENT PROGRESSION
