Fire Mage ilvl 859 Low dps

5 posts in this topic

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!

Moving this over to the mage forum, you'll most likely get help much faster there!

Hey, 

I took a quick look at your logs. first of all i am not the best fire mage there is. But i noticed a few things.

Talents:

15: I think you should use pyromaniac on purely singel target encounters

30: Use shimmer pretty much always, really helps with movement.

90: Unstable magic is the best for single target encounters.

I also saw you have a lot of haste on your gear. your stat priority is:

1. Critical Strike;

2.Intellect;

3.Mastery;

4.Versatility.

5.Haste;

The last thing i saw is that u used scorch 7 times during the fight. try not move when you don't have to. using shimmer you can limit the time you need to spend moving. 

I hope i have been helpfull. I really thought that the "in depth look at fire mage" video from Preacher was verry helpfull.

Sorry for the long delay on the reply.  Been extremely busy.

I looked at a couple of your fights.  You are missing several crit conversions from Heating up to Hot Streak on your Fireball procs.  Quite a lot of them actually.

 

Other than that, your Combustion phase needs some work, need to ensure you aren't wasting your Fireblast getting into a hot streak before you use combustion.   You should be ON a hot streak and have 2 Fireblast, and at least 2 PF ready with flame on to pop ROP+Combustion.

 

You are not using potions, that I can see.  Deadly Graces, period.  Not using them, you're losing a lot of dps.

 

Your uptime is pretty low as well.  You need to be constantly casting.

      I've been having issues where my dps is lower than it should be since I'm at a 874 ilvl. 
      I've changed mastery haste ratio and its still lower than it should be. If someone can look at my logs and help me out id be extremely grateful.

      Would you point out possible Improvements or grave mistakes visible in the logs?

      now ive tried diffrent ways of doing my rotation but i still cant seem to "hold it up" i am high up at start...til like 30-60sec into the fight then i start falling behind:(

      So iam willing to give out 1 token to whom ever can give me a reasonable, understandable solution that works for me
      (i know i didnt optimize my trueshot, prepots etc etc) But the problem is after trueshot and my troll racial is "over" i start falling:(
      this is what i wanna figure out, ive tried to do Aimed and then barrage/windburst etc but i seem to starve on focus, ive tried the 2aimed then some cd's but seems i fall behind on Aimedshot dmg then:(

      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/xZf9NW1KV6nyLgXQ#fight=30&type=damage-done&source=153          <----Log of the actuall kill
      here i got run over, but still my numbers are abysmal  (7% pref(

      here is the same rotation but a wipe  (29% pref)
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/xZf9NW1KV6nyLgXQ#fight=28&type=damage-done&source=153 
       
      another wipe, same rotation but only 9% pref
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/xZf9NW1KV6nyLgXQ#fight=27&type=damage-done&source=153 

      So even with the same rotation (atleast i think and feel like i do the same) i can go from 7% pref to 29% pref, i know alot of dmg is RNG but i cant be THAT Unlucky
      id say my avg preformance is about 10% so iam not unlucky iam sucky:(
      but i need to understand what i need to work on:( rotation i know...but is it as simple as to get the azortian down to the perfection?
      cause ive seen other hunters do my "get as many aimedshot as possible into vuln phase" do like 98% pref...but when i do it i fall down to 9.8:)

      tnx for any input and help

      and ill be more then willing to hand out a token for a guide/suggestion that actually works for me
