[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.

      The updated Icefury build suggests that Totem Mastery is taken.  However, nowhere in the priority whatsoever is it used.  It is, however, used in the Ascendance build.
      That being said, why would you pass on two talents of which you will actually include in your priority to take a talent for an ability you will not?  Or is there any error in the priority?  Is it worth casting?  And where at in the priority?
      Thank you.

      Hi all,
      i started again since WOTLK to play again my shaman , i leveled up as an elemental since i was always played elemental in the past.
      I tested the enchanement a bit , and i like him BUT i dont have in mind to raid except LFR ofc and some heroic dungeons and of course WQ's and grind.
      So i am thinking which spec has better survivability i cannot decide , some times ele doing better some times enha going faster vice versa :/
      I know that as a casual player now i have to play what is more fun for me BUT with the artifact AP to the weapons ( i have both to lvl 13 but now the AP is going bigger) its not so easy so i have to decide at least which spec to level up the weapon first so an opinion could help me decide.
      All i need is fast grind,good dps in dungeons and easy playing with good survivability .
      Thank you all for your replies :)

      We are a very social guild LFM for progression/semi-casual raiding and leveling.

      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+)

      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.
