SV dps

2 posts in this topic

Hi all,

A few weeks ago I moved from a guild at the end of normal ToT progression (10/12 mostly, though 12/12 at the very end) to a guild that was 8/13 HC at the time, moved to 11/13 HC in the meantime.

My problem is that I feel I’m lagging just behind the rest of the group in DPS. This was acceptable in the first weeks (I joined them when I had a 530 ilvl while they had been doing heroics for weeks), but I’m not closing the gap it seems. I feel I’m not capable of throwing out 200K on Durumu, for example. The burst phase generally feels ok, but I’ve seen me slide down the rankings as the fight goes on. I guess I’m looking for about 10-15K somewhere, at least.


About half my gear is HC, and hoping for helmet drop from Twins soon, so I can use the Heroic Sandmail while still preserving my 4pc. Mostly using a haste build atm.

Here is a link to a 12-min Raider’s Training Dummy session, no buffs (except pet)/flasks/potions:

(could do this as BM too, if it helps, though I'm more used to SV)

In raids, I do get the feeling that my rotation gets less tight because of slight delays. For example, I’ll start casting a Cobra Shot with 1.8 secs left on the ES cooldown, yet it’ll feel like ES sits there unused for quite some time. I generally have 20-25 fps and low latency, 30-50ms, according to the client.

This is a link to a Durumu kill when my ilvl was still around 532:

And a link to a slightly more recent Horridon kill:

I do have some single-target stuff from Twin Consorts I could upload as well if needed.

If anyone has any more tips on how to effectively analyze hunter metrics in WoL (or otherwise; I find it hard to know which sims to trust ever since RPPM), those would be most welcome.

Thanks in advance

I've been waiting for someone more knowledgable to post ... but they seem to be afk!

One thing which looks to be the case is not as many ES as possible. I haven't done hrc modes so this could add to the issue but I think you can squeeze through a few more. Bearing in mind they are the best shot by far you can fire.

Also on one or two of the logs I believe you could have stacked rapid fire with some procs a bit better and used it at least once more if not twice.

If you go onto WoL, look at your chara details for a fight, buffs cast, then click the hash next to ES and LnL, you can then use the hash's which come up next to those below the graph and it will plot them ... which shows you when you had LnL up, if you fired any ES in that time period and how long LnL was up.

There is SO SO much more which can be done with WoL ... so make sure to have a good search around to interpret it yourself, it will be of more use to you in the long run.

Hope this helps.

      Union is an alliance guild on the PVE server Uldum, we are currently 4/7 mythic and looking to add 1 mage and 1 warlock to our ranks. Union has been around since Vanilla and has had the same core of raiders for years. We pride ourselves on raiding just 10 hours per week and being able to maintain top 150 US throughout the last tiers of raiding. We raid:

      Tuesday 8-11 EST (5-8 PST)
      Thursday 8-11 EST (5-8 PST)
      Sunday 7-11 EST (4-8 PST)

      We are looking for a mage that not only parses high, but has good survival instincts and always comes prepared to each raid.

      Hi, Does anyone of you know how much haste is enough for demon blades to proc properly ? I'm actually at 20% (crit 40% mast 20%) I can switch to 50% crit but I will have 6% haste. 
      There is now a debate whether the proc chance of demon blades during GCD is actually a buff or a nerf, if anyone could bring opinion on that too it would be great.
      thank you.

      ABOUT US
      We are a very social guild LFM for progression/semi-casual raiding and leveling. 
      When we say "semi-casual," we mean that we raid two days for three hours, can laugh about a wipe but are still serious about progression. We plan to do Normal raids (not for long) before going on to Heroic and Mythic.
      New players and all levels welcomed. We are VERY new player and new role friendly and have a few new players in the raid group already. We will work with you and get you trained up. So don't worry! 
      We do have some PvPers and an experienced RBG leader so PvP isn't out of the question.
      We're almost always on Discord and we joke around a lot. Some jokes aren't appropriate so keep that in mind. (Recommended 18+)
      Currently we are using the EPGP system ( The addon EPGP (DKP Reloaded), EPGP Lootmaster, DBM, and GTFO are required to be downloaded and kept up-to-date on raid nights.
      Fridays & Sundays 8pm - 11pm PST. (10pm - 1am Server Time.) NOTE: Flasks, foods, potions, and enchants will be provided for raiders on a first-come first-serve basis. People who contribute to the guild bank will also have preference. Guild repairs provided on raid nights. Trials will be provided with the aforementioned items if we can spare them after the main raiders. CURRENT PROGRESSION

         We are a somewhat newly formed raiding guild focused 
      on providing a home to the serious players of Emerald Dream that
      want to progress through all content but can only commit a limited amount of time to the game. The core members and leadership of the guild that returned for Legion have been playing games together for 7+ years and quite a few of us know each other in real life. 
         We come from a plethora of locations, careers, and video game experiences but our love for gaming at a higher level has bonded us together. Our first mission at hand is to establish a roster of 40-45 members which will allow our members to have a 'show up when you want' attendance policy. Our progression raid invite priority will be based on attendance percentage. To accomplish this we are sounding the 'Call to Arms' in search of just a few more skilled raiders to  finish off our roster.
