Am I underperforming?

5 posts in this topic

Hey all,

 

I've been playing around with Fire for about a month now and while my DPS has improved, I still feel like I'm underperforming given my gear. I have included a log of a near-full SoO 10m I completed recently, and I was hoping some kind soul would be able to take a read through them and tell me what (if anything) I am doing wrong.

 

Note: I did not have either my current bracers or the Pennyroyal ring equipped, as I got them during this run.

Here is an armory link for my mage as well:

Thanks in advance!

Hi Wumbology,

 

only looked at Malkorok and Galakras. Your Bomb Uptime is way to low (only 75% on Malk, 64% on Galakras) and to the amount of casted Bombs I assume you do not snapshot your bombs (start doing so wink.png. IE Uptime could be a bit higher (91% is not that bad). Don't use Slow Fall on Malkorok, just blink when you are thrown in the air.

 

You upgraded your Pennyroyal ring although your KTT (which I assume you had before the raid already) is still without upgrades. Upgrade KTT as soon as possible.

 

I'm not 100% sure but I think that even as fire you would chosse Nether Tempest on Galakras. (According to IVs Fire Mage Guide LB is correct)

 

I leave the rest to Kver wink.png

 

PS: Just for Comparison I do about 20-30k DPS more on Malkorok and ~ 40k on Galakras with iLvl 554 as Frost.

Hi,

 

First of all, you seem to be a bit heavy on the haste, and only 13.3k crit is not the best amount, but it should work. Your gemming and reforging seems almost fine. I would absolutely upgrade that Trinket though. 

 

That Living Bomb uptime needs to go up, on Malkorok you only had 89.51% Pyromaniac uptime, and you ideally want to have that up for every spell which profits from it. You forgot to use a potion during the fight(Or you used it too late during the pull and were unable to use it again but I can't tell from this), you want to capture that in your 2nd Alter Time. Invoker's Energy seems to be fine on Juggernaut and Siege as well. I'd advise you to simply be careful and remember to keep that up.

 

Which addon do you use to track Living Bomb? Your uptimes indicate that you do really try, so you might want to look into a different way of tracking them.

 

I analysed your combustions during pulls, they are absolutely fine.

 

My advise would be to track your buffs/debuffs a bit better, focusing on LB uptime, and simply getting more crit. Do not bother snapshotting LB, just focus on its uptime.

 

I also wouldn't worry that much; you are 558 ilvl as fire without a lot of crit, and nobody in your guild is pulling high dps. I'd highly advise getting the rest of your raid members on here as well, especially the warlock.

 

Edit: Actually, for your gear, go here and press update from armory, then optimise: http://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/gear/usa/mal'ganis/wumbology

Hey guys,

Thanks for taking time out of your day to respond, I appreciate it.

I've set up a WA for living bomb, as well as one to alert me when it's dropped: hopefully that fixes things.

Is KTT worth upgrading vs saving my valor for a BBoY? I can't seem to find any actual values for the trinkets this their, so that was my original plan.

I am raid leader in a 25 man HC guild, I've been killing bosses that drop trinkets for years. I still have a flex KTT. Definitely upgrade it.

      Me and my raid group are still progressing through Mythic EN, though we have Nyth, Elerethe, and Ursoc all easily on farm. I'm consistently parsing very low for my ilvl, and consistently losing out in dps to a lower ilvl shaman of the same spec. Despite usually having better buff uptimes than him and better cd usage he parses much better than me. Usually the main difference i find is he gets off way more stormstrikes than me. Recently I've started mashing that button almost nonstop in fights, sometimes sacrificing a few seconds of buff time to get off more stormstrikes, but the results seem to be about the same as before. 
      Below you'll find logs that have both of us in them, as well as mine and his armory links. I'm Bigboyee and the other shaman is Cyrashapa. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 
      The Ursoc fight in particular on this one: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/vnpwPdAC7FrHxcWV#type=damage-done&fight=12
      Ursoc and Odyn were the only clean fights we had here:https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/YfgFwB3rzH6mV1jM/#fight=2&type=damage-done

      Hey there!
      I've recently started playing a mage, and I feel like my performance is a little below where it should be right now... I feel like I have the basics of the fire rotation down, but I really want to make any improvements that I can.. I don't really know where i'm going wrong, or what i'm doing that is causing a gap in numbers between me and similarly geared players. I have a log from a normal Xavius fight from earlier, maybe someone could take a look at it and point out any mistakes or give a few pointers?
      Thanks for your time!

      Hi everyone. I've a question, What spect should we roll for 7.1.5?
      So patch notes for 7.1.5 (November the 29th) are out.
      And I have 2 things to remark
      1.Strong buff to Arcane Mana cost for Arcane Blast has been reduced from 125% to 60% per Arcane Charge, since they are mana dependent. This does not apply It Was a tooltip bug.
      2.Almost all fire skills were buffed in damage, Fireball,Flame Blast, PyroBlast, Scorch, FlameStrike, CinderStorm,Meteor,Conflag and Phoenix's Flames. BUT Critical Mass % was reduced from 15% to 10% and Pyretic Incantation was nerfed from 5% per stack  to 2% per stack = 15%  less damage from consecutive Critical Strikes.
      I haven't done the math yet, but since Arcane has gotten a lot of buffs lately, and Fire is getting "balanced" (Since i've no idea how the patch will afect fire dps), and Frost Topping dps in rankings, and with no significant buffs or nerfs in the patch notes i suppose they will stay in tops.
      So if anyone would be so kind to enlighten me what spect you guys think it would be the best for 7.1.5 and why.

      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!
