[Elemental] DPS problems

11 posts in this topic

Good day I'm having some problems fine tuning my toon, first ranged DPS so I'm quite unsure if I'm doing things correctly

 

http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/draenor/Axarox/simple

 

Here's my toon, just tried moving some mastery to haste, see if it does something. On a test on a dummy I do around 121k with full mastery and 131k with a bit more in haste

 

I feel like I'm missing out , I didn't use BL or stormlash for the testing.

 

When comparing results to f.x. sim craft I get the result of 169k so I feel like I'm missing out on something

 

I only have a combatlog of a fight on horridon, so I'm not sure to what that's comparable

all help on this topic would be much appreciated 

 

regards

I'm not sure if it's just me, but I was denied access to that log. Double check to see if it's a private log, and try again.

It might help people if you try to describe the order in which you cast spells, in general.

 

As well as that, can you tell us what your opening cast sequence usually is?

 

That might help get you some constructive answers! :)

ofc well here's how I start,

fire elemental totem 

flame shock

lava burst

elemental blast

blood fury

ascendance 

go nuts on lava burst

 

 

overall I try to keep the uptime of flameshock as high as I can

then lava burst and elemental blast on CD 

filler is lighthing bolts and earthshock on 7 (I tend to forget to use that so I dont miss the flameshock reably time)

on filler periods I throw down a searing totem

 

thanks for the help guys :)

From what I know about Elemental, your rotation seems to at least be in the right area. I would suggest that perhaps spending some time recording your rotation and watching it (to pick up your mistakes) and then re-playing the same thing would help. Looking out for those mistakes would probably help you improve overall, even if nobody can give you any other ways to improve!

horridon dps has a lot to do with tank skill in grouping adds and pacing of the fight. theres some major damage buffs near the end, its just overall not a good fight to measure dps on. in tot durumu and twins are probably the most straight forward. if you can get in a flex SoO, iron juggernaut, malkorok and siegecrafter are very easy to just sit on boss and in all of them you hero on pull.

Did garrosh tonight, 3 times haha, and I could see my dps raise after every try going from 92k -> 118 k -> ending in 138k (142k according to recount) and I can sort of be happy with this, specially by the fact that chain lightning is only 15% , was more focused on single target dps

 

I logged those fights so I have them here:

Mostly the changes in gameplay was,

 

Better to do something than trying to have your priority 100%

position yourself better in fights

while casting plan your next attacks etc. 

 

All of this seems to be lack of experience of caster :)

 

thanks all for your help

yeah as a caster your position off the boss can be almost anywhere, so where you choose to be is very important. and as elemental, more than anything, Always Be Casting.

Sorry that this post is not entirely useful to your initial request, but just in case you had 3 "tries" of Garrosh in LFR difficulty, keep in mind that you likely get a determination buff after every wipe that boosts your stats. So, the increased numbers may not be accurate. Of course, if you had 3 separate attempts (or on non-LFR difficulty), you can disregard this post.

      VISIT OUR WEBSITE!
      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+)
      LOOT STYLE
      Currently we are using the EPGP system (http://wowwiki.wikia.com/wiki/EPGP).
      The addon EPGP (DKP Reloaded), EPGP Lootmaster, DBM, and GTFO are required to be downloaded and kept up-to-date on raid nights.
      RAIDING SCHEDULE
      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
      Emerald Nightmare, [7/7N] [6/7H] Trial of Valor, [2/3N] OTHER EVENTS
      Saturday is for Mythics/other events. Though we do stuff throughout the week. Most of us have work or school so it depends. The Karazhan mega-dungeon is done on a weekly basis on Saturdays! We will help with attunement! WHAT WE HAVE ROOM FOR**

      Hello, i was wondering which is the best opening rotation while using the Lightning Rod talent. So this is how i do it 
      Pre-pot -> Fire Elemental -> Stormkeeper 1 sec before pull -> Flame Shock -> Elemental Mastery -> Lava Burst -> 3x instant LB -> normal rotation.
      My questions are
      Should i precast Lava Burst not Stormkeeper and if so should i use Elemental Mastery before or after Stormkeeper so i won't lose time on it while dumping the 3 instant LB? But keeping in mind that the Storm elemental is buffed by haste.
      If i pre-cast Stormkeeper should i dump the 3 instant LB and then Flame Shock -> Elemental Mastery -> Lava Burst?
      Or fell free to post your opening but please argue why you do it like that. Thank you in advance for all the feedback.

      Hi All, 
      I am part of a raiding guild in Aus/NZ & we have quite a few DPS.  Due to mythic being restricted to 20 people, i'm finding myself on the bench.  Now I know it's early on, but we've cleared Heroic and I need to pick up my DPS.  So I come to you guys for some help.

      I feel that due to the movement requirements of Mythic encounters, i'm quite hindered with steady main target dps.  I can squeeze good aoe burst dps, but find that after my first opening sequence, my numbers just drop off too rapidly.

      I'm using (I believe) the suggested rotation listed here on icyveins.  

      Here is a link to our Heroic Clear from the 28th Sept, our first run after the Class changes.
      Talamia Elemental Shaman - Heroic Emerald Nightmare (warcraftlogs.com)
      Here is my Armory link.
      Talamia - Elemental Shaman - I have haste gems, in order to see if casting quicker helped.  As a JC, i don't mind having to replace them.

      I found when using the compare facility on warcraftlogs.com - my mastery is way high  (3k)  - with Versatility (900) and Haste (2.8k) being much lower, but crit is around the right place (11.6k).

      Most of the drops i've gotten, have mastery on it.  Very little has Crit & Versatility, which seem like the preferred states.
       
      I run dungeons with little problems, unless there are movement fights, but even then, they are shorter and much easier to compensate with, especially with a good healer / tank.
