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.

      Trying to get myself geared better but seem to be having problems.  Artifact is almost full on fire.  Just having to unlock the 3rd trait is being a pain.

      So I love this brawlers guild and have thoroughly enjoyed the challenge up until meatball. Now I'm just bitter. I'm a frost mage but I also tried arcane and I can't touch this guy. Ive tried any and ever strategy and buff I'm able to afford and haven't even got him under 50% yet. I'm 865 so I feel like it should be possible I didn't think my gear would be a problem until rank six honestly. So any advice or help or tips or whatever I'm desperate.
