Reasonable Arms DPS?

4 posts in this topic

Hello everyone, just a little background first.

 

I joined in late Cata and throughout most of that expansion and early mop I had no idea what I was doing and pretty much sucked/never made any real progress. This patch, though (5.4) I've started raiding relatively casually for progression purposes, not really competitively. I'm 13/14 in SoO at the moment (have killed all but thok).

 

So, I'm not sure if I'm doing the DPS I should be doing at my ilvl. Here's a link to my armory (I have the 2-set and also the norushen trinket to replace the thok one on multi-target fights.)

On single target fights (like iron jug and malkorok), I manage to pull somewhere between 200k and 220k DPS on 10M normal. I've heard that arms is one of the worst dps specs right now but it still just doesn't feel right when I have a similarly geared hunter and boomkin in my raid group beating me by ~20-30k on single target fights every time. My question is, is my DPS as high as its going to get for my item level or do I have room to improve/should I respec for fury?

If you can post some logs from your raid, we can analyze your playstyle and see what could be done to improve. Without that, it's hard to say.

I wouldn't say the DPS is bad, per say. And being beaten by some classes by that small of a margin isn't somethig to be ashamed for really. I find it interesting though that you've managed to clear all but Thok. It shouldn't be too hard if you've managed the rest.

~200k seems a bit on the low side for your ilvlbut it may be because at the point you're at, fury would definitely give better results.

 

You probably have room to improve (everybody has smile.png ) but I would assume that mainly it's because Arms on single target is weaker than fury atm, especially past 530 ilvl.

      Just thought I would ask the group, Does it seem like arms kind of got screwed a bit with no Health CD besides the raid wide Commanding Shout?  I'm finding that I have to carry some health pots for Oh Shit moments during the raid when enraged regen used to help keep me up at other times.  Trying to get a hit off on the boss after getting a victory rush kind of sucks.

      so ive been wanting to play arms more than fury in mythic plus  but when i simed my self it said i should be doing 400k while i only do around 300k average ( dungeon) ik this might be for a raid but either way its no where close to 400k .

      How does Battle Cry actually work? Does the 100% crit chance guarantee a crit? I ask because I've been trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong to boost my DPS and noticed today, multiple times, while working on the Raid dummy I was not enraging when I expected to due to Battle Cry being up. 
       
      I created a short clip that shows this happening:  
       
       
      Is this normal or a bug?
