Help Me With My DPS, Please!

6 posts in this topic

Hello forum! I need help with my dps. I have read for a long time on noxxic.com and also here, but my dps is still low. On Noxxic.com there is a feature that says how much dps each specc has, and the lowest specc should have around 69k with ilvl 463 gear. I have almost every piece of gear better than that, but my dps is 38k, So I really need help.

Now my fist specc is nothing to think about, I use that for soloing and I think that is fine. But my secondary specc is my raiding one. (The one that doesn't use elusiveness.)

Now the specc is mostly from Noxxic and here but also what some of the people in the raidfinder group told me was better.

The combatlog; I didnt know how to use it or do it, so a little help with how to use it would be apreciated ;D.

Rotation:

My rotation is in stealth ambush and (if needed) shadowstep. Then I use Sinister Strike to get 5 combopoints and always keeping reavealing strikes up. With 5 CP I refresh Slice and Dice, and when both revealing strikes and SnD is up I spend my combopoints on Eviscerate. Killing Spree I use everytime it's possible preferably when I am low on energy, so I build up some combopoints first since using a finishing moves regenerates some energy. I try to use Adrenaline Rush after a Killing Spree so that the cooldown is shortened by the finishing moves.

I don't really know what defensives to use, I mainly use Cloak of Shadows when it is possible or I save it for when I need to resist a strong spell from the boss, and the same thing goes about smokebomb (trying to do it close to other players). If more damage resist is needed I also do Combat Readiness. My AOE rotation isn't a rotation... (I'm just saying) So I need help with that, and I really don't understand the guides on how to do it.

I'm not using Rupture, since it's just some few percent of my DPS and people have told me not to use it.

Poisons; I dont really know which one to use. Some have told me to use leaching poison but the guide advice not to. And also the fourth tier of my talent; I don't knoiw what to chose.

If there is something I missed to mention, please let me know and I tell you how I am doing it.

Regards,

Heradsinn!

According to noxxic combat is pulling 61,622 dps at 468ilvl, which is a ok benchmark I suppose but I wouldn't take to much stock in it. Rotation and gameplay is the most important. Like everyone else will post, "without any logs its hard to give you much help". World of Logs is as easy as going to the site, making an account, and reading the directions. At first glance though you don't have everything reforged/gemmed/enchanted and because of that you aren't hit capped, which is a must for rogues. I would suggest going to Mr. Robot and making the changes it tells you. Its not the end all be all of your decision making but it's a step in the right direction. I would almost guaranty you see a difference just by doing that. If your rotation and priority system is as stated you shouldn't have a issue.

I sent an email to WoL Support for help on how to do the log. It will probably be up here soon, if they answer me Posted Image.

From what I understand, a tool like Shadowcraft is more reliable than Noxxic. It can tell you what reforges/gems will be helpful as well. Often times the theoretical DPS is almost impossible to reach because it requires perfect play and doesn't fully account for bad RNG. On the other hand, you can be doing better than 38k with your gear.

As far as AOE goes, check the icy-veins guide. Basically it says if there are less than 8 targets, just turn on blade flurry and continue the SnD/Evisc rotation. If more than 8 targets, fan of knives to five combo points and then crimson tempest to spend them.

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 8/10N NH 4/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, Rogue, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review, make a character on our realm and inbox me, or hit me up on real ID (violentravi#1826).  Alternatively, if you are old school, please apply via our website:  http://www.adelante-guild.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Howdy,
      I was going to submit a bug report in game, but I thought I'd check here to see if this really is a bug, or if I just don't understand how the ability is supposed to work. Here's what I planned to submit:
      outlaw rogue ability: Between the Eyes, is not correctly applying the 4x damage increase on critical strikes per the tooltip listed damage for each combo point, nor is it appropriately applying any of the bonus damage modifiers: prey on the weak and ghostly strike. If using Deeper Strategem talent, it appears to be applying 4x damage based on the 5th combo point tooltip, but again, the modifiers:ghostly strike and prey on the weak are not applying. 
      Per the tooltip, at 6 combo points, I should do 200,695 damage, 5 combo points would be 167,470 damage. While testing this on a training dummy, with Ghostly Strike and Prey on the Weak applied, with Deeper Strategem talented, using 6 combo points, I see a critical strike (100% chance from legendary shoulders) of 682,357. Unless my math is horribly mistaken, that should be a critical strike for 963,336:
      200,695 x 4 x (100% + 10% + 10%)
       
      This is what I do:
      Stand behind dummy, so nothing is blocked, build up 6 combo points, apply Ghostly strike, either vanish, or leave combat and enter stealth, use Cheap Shot, then use Between the Eyes

      So I'm confused on what to do at this point.. I'm at 30% crit with the shoulders equip and 120% mastery. Should I be stacking mastery now and not worrying about crit since I get 100% off start? I also have the bracers? Also since the burst is for 6 seconds I don't know what I should do for a opener anymore.. Any suggestions?

      Hey all, I apologize if this is common knowledge, but my rogue is one of my alts and I don't know as much about the class as I'd like. I used to play outlaw just fine, but I'm interested in a strong spec that isn't so RNG dependent. I'm a bit confused as to how much mastery is needed to pull off a poison build vs a bleed a build. The talent guide says to go for poisons if you have a mastery-heavy build. What constitutes a lot of mastery? My rogue is wearing ilvl 847 with 27.79% crit, 7.83% haste, 116.2% mastery, 3.6/1.8% versatility. That is based on recommendations from Ask Mr. Robot. I primarily run mythics and I would like recommendations on the best tier 1 and 6 talent suggestions.

      With the huge upcoming nerfs to BtE (crit multiplier removed) and greenskins wrists (400% to 300% damage), i am wondering if the effect will still be worth using in 7.1.5, or whether or not they will become a glorified stat stick. With the slight buff to ghostly strike also, it seems they may become useless. Does anyone have any info / run any sims on the issue. On a side note, with the single target buffs to outlaw is it going to be a competitive spec, and will slice and dice overtake roll the bones to give the spec more consistency (although make it far more boring).
