8 posts in this topic

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?

Hey dude,

Looking at Ursoc as it is the fight with least DPS-affecting variables for which to account.  Your EP uptime is actually good; at 72%, it's actually a lot better than I expected to see considering the very, very low crit value you have.  In order to maintain that kind of crit, I am going to guess you either do a lot of very low-CP envenoms and/or settle for less than 6cp Ruptures at times?  Rupture uptime of 87% should be higher, so work on getting that closer to 100%.

Try going MP/AP instead of EP/AP until you get more crit, also.  Sims might say EP is better, but try it yourself and see if it actually plays out that way.  Dragons is a poor fight for AP builds due to all the add switching and interrupting we have to do, so it doesn't surprise me that you had better success with Exsanguinate on that fight.

My biggest worry is this:  What happened at the beginning of the fight that gave you no initial burst during your opener?  Considering you pre-potted, I expected to see a significant spike during that opening segment even though there was no early bloodlust but that did not happen.  Even if you got focused, you should have plenty of time to fully open and get some nice damage in before you have to run away.  If you didn't, then I am just confused.

Assassination relies on cooldown stacking and bursting hard during those windows to keep its overall DPS figure high.  Missing that first big pre-pot window really hurt your parse.

If you talking about ursok fight then, i have to wait ~2 sec for boss to stand still. I open on him with garrote then he halfway to tanks, then do 2 muti - vendette- vanish+Rupture-kingslayer - envenom on 2-4cp to keep EP uptime. Sometimes it just 1-2 cp envenom after garrote/kingslayers. On this raid i had ~152% mastery. For calculating loot value i use stat weights from this website in Pawn addon.

On the note of stat weights, the static stat weights found on icy veins are in general "okay" to use but there is a certain amount of crit needed especially when running EP that you need before you can then dump the rest of your gear towards mastery. Aim for 43% unbuffed crit and then put the rest in mastery, eating crit food puts you at 44% crit which with the artifact traits puts your mut at a 50% crit chance which smooths out the opener and maintaining EP giving you more consistent dps.

So... If i understand this right. Icy-veins stat weights (mastery>crit) is for MP/AP build but if i want go with EP/AP build i need change gear on gear with crit>mastery stat ratio until i have 43% crit. Does this number decrease with artifact relics on +2% to muti crit chance?

Stat weights always depend on your gear. Once you hit a certain level of one, others will be more beneficial. 

You should always use a tool like SimC to determine stat weights, upgrades, and more

Some fresh logs from myth raid. After raid and some SC runs i come with this set of gear:
http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/howling-fjord/Хантимка/simple

But now i have a question. If i have multiple specs and i have one specific ring in each gear set(Sephuz's secret for example) which enchant and gem i must use on it? Versality, for equal impact on each spec, or mastery/crit for Sin|Sub?

Mastery gives you more damage but without the proper amount of crit you will struggle a lot in your opener and in your general EP uptime due to horrible horrible rng, getting to the 50% soft cap for mutilate will make this almost non existent and give you more consistent dps... that being said if you have god like rng you could stack mastery all the way and obviously see better results due to the scaling. I myself prefer consistency. If you have a mut crit chance relic you can theoretically afford to be sitting on 41% crit instead of 43% crit in this scenario, again its largely a player by player thing some people could still be early in their artifact tree, different relics etc etc. Sim for the most up to date info on this. In terms of enchants just enchant for your main spec unless you have unlimited gold in that case just stock all the different enchants in your inventory and swap them out as you swap specs. For me I enchant my rings with CRIT because I want to be at or as close to 43% as possible as a assassination rogue, once I go over that in crit I will begin switching to mastery enchants for more damage.

 

Edit: Also if I manage to finally get an eye of command from karazhan I will switch my enchants/gems to mastery because the eye of command will get my crit up for me in long ST fights so I have an easier time maintaining EP.

      Hello everyone
      My guild and I raided EN last sunday and cleared normal mode easy enough and because we still had time, we started a heroic run aswell. For HC, I started a log that includes the boss kills Nythendra, Il'gynoth and Dragons of Nightmare.
      I am able to extract quite a bit of information for healers and DDs, but it seems that I don't really know what to look for, when trying to determine MY performance as a Blood DK (Yovana). I'm sure the information is there, but when it comes to Tanks in general, I'm struggling a little bit.
      In general, I think I'm doing ok because I don't get complaints from the healers and I don't really die, but if someone could point out obvious mistakes or inefficiencies, that would be very helpful.
      What catches my eye is the rather high amount of overheal of DS with 40%. I know that this is not really good, but then again, if I'm not taking any substantial amount of dmg, I'm not gonna sit on my runes and instead deal dmg with DS. So that explains the overheal a bit.
      Note that we had to top off our group with random players (1 random healer and several random DDs).

      Thank you all for any help in this matter and have a nice day

      Hello all,
      This is my first post in this area of the forum and I was wondering if someone can help me.
      I've recently started logging my encounters - starting with my guilds ToV HC run.
      While I'm always usually in the top 2-5 people on the DPS meter during raids, the log I took for the ToV HC run show me to be in the lower percentiles for that fight for my gear level (879 equipped, 880 bagged). I'd appreciate it if someone could enlighten me and let me know if there is something wrong in my rotation? Anything is appreciated, I'd like to maximise what I can if there's more I can eek out of my spec!
      Log: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/4p1dqz73WD86jnRL/#type=damage-done&source=5 (it's a live log so it'll be constantly updating while this run is going)
      Log: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/68rytKvmMxH7RTkc#fight=17 (for some other information - here is my Kara clear for the week (with NB))
      Armory link: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/darkspear/Eaglie/simple
      If any more information is required please let me know!
      Thanks guys!

      Hey guys,  first time posting up some healing logs.
      I got into Legion a few weeks ago, and just did a normal emerald nightmare run, had some great dps in the group, but was hoping some of the resto druids here could give me a bit of feedback on my healing?
      Hopefully this links  to all of the bosses, Xavius was my best one.

      Hi All
      Thank you upfront for the support. It has helped me a lot reading other people's post too. I need some help with my WW DPS please. 
      Armory: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/twilights-hammer/Hëisenberg/advanced
      Logs: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/HDxPTYthcN6JZqj1#type=damage-done&fight=1&source=5
      I have also been on the Walking the Wind website and used that as a supplement. Rotation: FSP Kick in, TP > TOD > SEF > RSK > EE + FoF > SotWL > WDP > TP > RSK (not sure after this but probably TP > BK > TP > FoF to capitalize on the second FoF while SEF is still up from Drinking Horn).
      I've started to focus on making sure that I have chi available soon as FoF or RSK or SotWL comes off CD. In the past I wasn't watching and would be starved for Chi at the last second and have to TP which is a DPS loss. But I'm still not sure why I am underperforming so much. Also please let me know what I am doing right and should keep doing. 
      Any help will be appreciated. Thank you and have a great Christmas!

      Greetings Mages of IcyVeins,

      i am seeking your help to compare a guildmate of mine to my own performance.
      He is doing significantly more DMG than me and i can't see why that is.
      Would someone be so Kind as to compare Erdin with Juvîa please?
      My Char is Juvîa, Erdin is my Guildmate.
       
      Arsenal:
      Erdin: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/theradras/Erdin/simple
      Juvîa: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/dethecus/Juvîa/simple
       
      Logs:
      Nythendra Myth: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/jybH6AN7C9dpRVmr#fight=1
      Ursoc Myth: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/jybH6AN7C9dpRVmr#
       
       
      Let's compare the fights:
       
      Nythendra   Erdin Juvîa Pyro 77 63 Fireball 60 42 Flame Blast 34 31 PF 14 14 RoP 9 8 Combustion 4 3
      Ursoc   Erdin Juvîa Pyro 66 61 Fireball 66 37 Flame Blast 30 33 PF 12 12 RoP 8 7 Combustion 4 3  
      Hints:
      - I got less FB casts because of my Legendary Belt (i use Scorch <25% Boss HP)
      - I am "missing" one Combustion because of Cinderstorm instead of Kindling (-> Legendary Belt again)
       
      What i noticed:
      - His Pyros crit more often (Nythendra in this case) -> better Heating Up Conversion
      - he casts Pyro more often - not sure how (because of HU-Conversion?)
      - i could be using Ice Flows more often
      - i am missing one RoP each fight in this example log
      - His DMG on Ursoc partially comes from Dragon's Breath + Ruby on the Add
      I recently discovered the following tool. Not sure how accurate it is however:
      http://www.checkmywow.com/reports/jybH6AN7C9dpRVmr/73430163/1?tab=basic
       
      My Conclusion:
      There are smal differences in the basic Rotation which should result in rather small DMG gap.
      My Confusion: (see what i did there? :D)
      The DMG gap is huge..?
       
      I would love to hear your opinion. Maybe i am missing something significant?
      If you need more logs or anything else, feel free to let me know.
      Thank all of you in advance!! :)
      (Please be kind, english is not my primary language)
