[FIRE] How can I improve my DPS further?

5 posts in this topic

Hello there :)

Currently I'm playing firemage with 59 % crit (with 300 bufffood). I'm raiding as well and we are 6/7 nhc (we're not going for progress ;)). Depending on the fights I'm able to maintain between 180k and 220k dps. But from everyone I'm just hearing that this dps is way too low and I have to change something. So this is why I'm asking you ;)

I'm going to upload a dummy log, so you can see my complete rotation how I am going through it. This is the way I am doing it in raid as well, depending on mechanics and movement a bit different (maybe I can upload a Cenarius and Xavius Log tomorrow when were going to raid). So my question is: Is there a mistake in my rotation, am I doing it right? I know Im missing gems right now, but they are just way too expensive right now :)

I would really appreciate some help :) thanks in advance !

I did a quick view onto your log, and im pretty sure its because ur use of the RoP.. The third time to cast it should be far before combustion goes off cd, its like 1 combustion, 3 RoP, 1 combustion, 3 RoP.. and try to do it when u have at least 1 phoenix and 1 fire blast so less time casting, more damage.

If you are pre-potting, then using a pot during the burn phase, or during your next big burn phase because hero was used at the start, and you are using ROP with Combustion correctly, and you are fishing for Pyros there isn't much else you can do.

 

I did some small tweaks to my priorities last week.  I was doing ROP wrong and I corrected that.  I now am easily pulling 280~320k dps sustain.

 

The info is in the guide, just make sure you're following it.

 

Pre-pot/precast pyro 4.5 seconds before pull.  Ramp up to an instant pyro, hold it and cast ROP then combustion.  Then go straight into your combustion burn.  Using FB and PF to keep your pyros stacking.  If you let your Pyretic Incantation fall off, you're losing a lot of dps.

 

Then go into you're regular Pyro fishing rotation.  Fireball to get a hotstreak, FB, cast another Fireball then immediately Pyro to proc another hotstreak/instant pyro.  You should be able to get 2~3 more ROP in before your Combustion is off CD, just ensure that you save ROP for Combustion alongside 2 PF, 2 FB, and Flame On.

 

I don't like using dummies for logs.  Go into LFR and upload those logs.  Dummies are fool proof and don't give you the information you really need.

So well I'm back again.. was pretty ill the last few weeks...

Thanks for all your tipps up to now! Well I think Ive read the guides like a million times, and im following it as best as i can. just prepotting is something im not doing right now since its not necessary for our raid.

So last sunday we were raiding and finally beating the last boss Xavius, so i can provide a log from this.

Another question I have, and what im really struggling with, is how to deal damage while moving.. I know i have scorch and such but how do you modify your rotation when its a movement intens fight?

Like I said above, follow the guide and use your ROP correctly and you'll be fine.  Pre-potting gives a substantial increase to DPS.

 

As far as moving with damage, you use ice flows.

      <Bad RNG> is a Semi-Hardcore Horde raiding guild recruiting for our raiding team to progress quickly through Mythic's! The guild is currently located on Detheroc, but many realms are connected together. The list of connected realms are "Detheroc, Dethecus, Lethon, Haomarush, Blackwing Lair and Shadowmoon" but many guildies are located on the realm Lethon(Including leadership).

      Hi ! I tough I was doing Ok with my dps, but I find my self pretty low when i compare with other rogues. I'm considering switching to assassination because of this reason ... 

      I would like to know What I'm doing wrong because i tought my rotation was good. 

      This is my logs -> https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/hv6bfdgAjWDXF2BY#fight=2&type=damage-done&source=13
      Dywolfs 337k.
      When I look at some others rogues (without the OP legendary boots) I am 130k behind them for the same Ilvl
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/P2hFJnYyg6a4A7bv#fight=29&type=damage-done&source=15
      Oswin -> 468k

      When I compare our cast, we have pretty much the same rotation / cast.
      So except for the 4% nightblade missing, what I am doing wrong ? 

      Thanks 

      On askmrRobot, it say i shoud be at 378k on ursoc

      The correct stats should be  Agility > Versatility > Main Hand Damage > Critical Strike > Mastery > Haste > Off Hand Damage > Leech > Avoidance > Movement Speed

      Right ?

      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.
