Further improvements?

7 posts in this topic

Hey everyone,

I try to keep my mage up to date and read on forums/discord and stuff, but I don't really feel like I am dealing the DMG that I should deal with 865.

Maybe some of you Mythic-Raider pros or something, could have a look at my logs to say if I am doing alright or what to improve?

HC-Logs 6/7 https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/4KnjvG9dwtX7PY62

I am using Potion of Prolonged Power, even though I know that Deadly Grace is still better.

Armory is in the signature.

 

Thanks in advance :)

Lily, you're at what, 55% crit fully buffed?

 

One thing of note, Deadly Graces is just too good not to use.  I know you said you know this but if you want to do better DPS, consider in most fights Deadly Graces will range between 5 and 9% of your total damage, which could be a ton of damage.

 

From what I can see, you have 2 slight issues, and that's it.  The rest comes with better gear honestly.

You failed to convert 6 of your heating ups from a pyroblast into a new hotstreak.  You had 21/27 procs. 

 

The other thing I noticed is every, at least on Cenarius, time you burned Combustion you were only getting 5 Pyros in.  You should idealy be getting 7 pyros out during that phase.  It's hard but doable.  I pretty much  maintain 6 of them but at least one burn I get to 7, depends on the stupid server lag at the time.

 

IMO, those Legendary boots are wasted.  I would drop them for a good pair of Mythic+ or Heroic boots. You probably want the boots off of Heroic (if you're not on Mythic yet) Ursoc, http://www.wowhead.com/item=139195/crimson-wool-lined-slippers&bonus=1807

You can also grab the normal versions, the boots from Huntsman in Karazhan, or heroic Cenarius.  They'll push you towards 58% crit, which doesn't sound like much but goes far in the way of easily procing heating up.

You've got the 375 crit food, you've got the flask.  No Augment Rune, and no Deadly Graces.

 

Honestly, your DPS seems fine, just need to fine tune things slightly.  Work on making sure every time you proc a heating up it turns into a hotstreak.  Don't miss any.  So far the only ones you missed were pyroblast procing it and not turning it into a hot streak.  Work on your Combustion phase some, try to get out at least 1 more pyro during the phase.  I see you are using PF to get into your rotation, I would wait until you are already in a hot streak to ROP+Combustion.  I am spiking 750k+ on my Combustion phases.  Granted, my guild is only in Normals, I wasn't logging for the Heroic clear I did with my brother's guild so I can't truly compare my dps to yours.

 

Again, this is different because different fights, albeit slightly.  I really need to get the logs from my brother for that heroic clear, but you can look and compare to see what I am doing vs what you are doing, switch to time table and look.

 

Your  Elerethe Renferal fight was one of your better fights so I choose that fight to compare.

Yours https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/4KnjvG9dwtX7PY62#type=summary&fight=28&source=7

Mine https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/9c8BNZFTaLCAXRwf#type=summary&fight=13&source=9

 

Now, I'm a bad mage, don't be a bad mage like me and use Scorch so much lol.  You use Ice Floes properly, I sometimes totally forget it exists.  I could probably have done better had I remembered to use the damn thing.

 

Here's a nice website to check simple stats on what you're doing and where you're missing procs.  It's not fool proof and not all classes are supported but it's pretty cool and shows some good stuff.

http://www.checkmywow.com/reports/4KnjvG9dwtX7PY62/96021040/37?tab=basic

 

Hope that helps some!

 

TLDR:

Convert more Pyro Heating Up to Hot Streak, you're missing some of them.

Get some more Crit.  Drop those legendary boots in favor of Heroic Ursoc boots.

Use Deadly Graces.

Get at least 1 more pyro out of Combustion phase, you're only at 5.

Message me and I will send you my info to add me to battletag if you have any questions.

Hey Thazi,
firstly thanks for this really long and specific answer you gave me :)

I switches my leg-boots to 875 boots from Cenarius to get more crit. I always knew that they are the worst leg to get for firemages, due to the stats, but the INT-upgrade was not easy to beat with a lower item^^
Now I got another 2% Crit and fully buffed I am at 61% :)
I am pandaren and use the 375 crit-food. Is Fishbrul Special better for me?

 

I will keep my mind to converting more Heating Ups into Pyros! On Cenarius I stopped casting cause of the reflection of the boss. But don't really know if that's what blocked 6-7 Pyros.

 

So, thanks again for your work I appreciate it :) And I will keep eyes open for more Pyros!

The 375 crit food is your best bet.  Even as a Pandaren.  You're at 61% now, thats awesome. 

 

Yeah, the reflect can be an issue, but shouldn't be a major issue.  When I did it on Heroic Tuesday I think I had to hold off on only 2 or 3. 

The key is not to throw the pyro out, you had heating up but didnt convert them to hot streaks.  Throw a blast out and get the hot streak, with your ice shield it should negate the damage coming back from the reflect if any happens.

 

Hope it helps, let me know if your dps increases!

 

EDIT:

 

Dealing with his reflection ability shouldn't be a huge issue in Heroic mode.  I'll be honest, as long as you keep your ice shield up, you should be okay.  Try to not hit him with instant cast pyros when it's up, but fireblast won't kill you.  Convert away. 

It also helps me that I have the Legendary chest, so I can get an extra bubble with blink.  But even still, a fireblast won't kill you lol.

Yep, figured this out as well. Fishbrul doesn't double :/

Sometimes I don't have a blast up, but I will definatly keep trying to improve this.

As an early update:

I finally killed Xavius on heroic this evening with my guild and forgot to start the logs after a relog... So I only got 8 wipes instead of ~20 wipes and a kill. But at least on Xavius, my DMG felt way better with these few changes I had recently and keeping in mind to get more Pyros in Comb + more Pyros from Heating-Up :)

Good news!

 

How many pyros were you able to get off during Combustion this time?

On first burst I always fitted 6 in Comb. Some pulls I got like 3 Pyromaniac-Proccs... On others it felt like none in 6Mins.

Infight I haven't managed to save all 3 PFs intime. But anyways, my damage (for now just on Xavius) felt much better! :)

      Me and my raid group are still progressing through Mythic EN, though we have Nyth, Elerethe, and Ursoc all easily on farm. I'm consistently parsing very low for my ilvl, and consistently losing out in dps to a lower ilvl shaman of the same spec. Despite usually having better buff uptimes than him and better cd usage he parses much better than me. Usually the main difference i find is he gets off way more stormstrikes than me. Recently I've started mashing that button almost nonstop in fights, sometimes sacrificing a few seconds of buff time to get off more stormstrikes, but the results seem to be about the same as before. 
      Below you'll find logs that have both of us in them, as well as mine and his armory links. I'm Bigboyee and the other shaman is Cyrashapa. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 
      The Ursoc fight in particular on this one: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/vnpwPdAC7FrHxcWV#type=damage-done&fight=12
      Ursoc and Odyn were the only clean fights we had here:https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/YfgFwB3rzH6mV1jM/#fight=2&type=damage-done

      Preface:
      - First post on Ice Veins - only recently started using the site but, omg, savior
      - Been playing Warcraft for about 4 years, off and on... still consider myself a newb
      - Boosted a blood elf mage to 100, thinking I'd only use it for farming
      - Got myself all three artifacts and up to 110 as frost
       
      So, I got sick of the low dps that frost mage was providing in dungeons and was getting killed frequently. Others in my parties would get very frustrated with me. I didn't blame them.
      Today I switched to Fire mage. Of course, I'm not familiar with all the spells but WOW. I tried killing some withered in Suramar just to test it out and they demolished me. Ice Barrier was always my go-to as Frost and if my shield went down before I could recast, I'd cast Mirror Image to take the damage for me.
      (I HATE that mages have no in-combat heal)
      Looking for help. Tell me if you need me to post anything. Like I said; total newbie. Most acronyms frighten me and there are lots of terms I don't know, lol.
      I'm thisclose to finishing Pathfinder Part 1. Should probably stick to Frost until I get it, but I would like to go Fire after that. Preferably without dying.

      Aloha,
      I have been raiding with ye olde guildies, but alas my dps has been at the bottom of the pile which I expect with my ilvl as they are all much higher but i do feel like i should be doing more than what I am.
      please take a look at the logs ( https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/LGQfTc47XwkdtYzj#fight=1&type=summary&source=16 ) and help me figure out where i am going wrong.
       
      Thanks in advance!

      I was looking over my logs from our raid last night, specifically the M Ursoc fight.  I then went on to look at the logs of the ranked MM hunters in the same gear range as me and I saw a disparity in my Aimed Shot damage that I am not able to explain. 
      Here is my Damage Done log and Check My Wow log for the fight:
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/dCVMZw8LfJxBcv3D#fight=5&type=damage-done&source=56
      http://www.checkmywow.com/reports/dCVMZw8LfJxBcv3D/180071802/5
       
      Here is the Damage Done log and Check My Wow log for the #2 parse for the fight:
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/gac1QPVBMJGHW3Dt#type=damage-done&source=19
      http://www.checkmywow.com/reports/gac1QPVBMJGHW3Dt/126082204/8
       
      With all of this information there were two things that stood out to me.  Their Aimed Shot damage is quite a bit higher than mine and the damage that the do during Trueshot is a lot higher than mine.  I do see that there was a perfect 77/77 for Aimed Shot casts where I was only 68/75 and if that is the cause of an almost 100k DPS difference that I will accept that and work on it.  However, in these reports we both have the same Legendaries and comparable gear with my Agility being about 2k lower and Vers 900 lower but with higher Crit, Haste, and Mastery.  If anyone has anything to point out as to what I might be doing wrong or missing, I would be incredibly grateful.  Thanks

      Where is my logs from yestarday raid:
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/Q8TLRp6g4vNxchVW#type=damage-done&translate=truehttps://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/Q8TLRp6g4vNxchVW#type=damage-done&translate=true
      I wanted to go like sub but after first boss my low dps make me really sad. So i spec back to sin. Both artifacts have 24 lvl and all 3 golden traits. 
      On spider and ursok i was in EP/AP spec and tried to maintain EP as much as i can, but on dragons it's didn't work much so i switch to MP/EX build and i think it worked much better.
      Can someone give me few tips for sub/sin, mb i doing something wrong?
