How many % of SIM-dps should i do?

4 posts in this topic

Hello,

I've been a frequent reader of this forum and i love the discussions and answers that are given. Since i have only played WoW for a year i havn't felt experienced enough to be a part of the forum, but now i have a question of my own.

Now to my question/problem. My SIM-dps is about 362k but i'm usually doing around 300k, which is far less then my SIM-dps. How bad is that? And how much can my fellow raiders expect from me?

On HC Malkorok which is almost only single target, i do around 300k, on HC protectors, i do around 300k and now last we are doing HC spoils and i'm around 300k.

My own opinion is that with more then one target i should be over my SIM-dps.

Second question, is there a good macro to use in the start of a fight? I usually prepot, RoF to get the procs, dark soul, synapse (engineering tinker), doomguard, Immolate, conflagrate, 3x incinerate and get out 2 CB:s before my prepot runs out.

But just to cast my 2 cd:s, doomguard and immolate takes a few seconds even if they are instant. Am i doing something wrong? And some say the doomguard have the stats i have when i cast it during the whole time he is active, some say it changes if my cd:s run out. What is the correct way of using him?

I'm rhankful of any answer :)

Post your logs.  Can't help you if we don't see what you're REALLY doing despite you saying you do it all well.

 

% of Simcraft DPS is a pretty terrible way to analyze your DPS.  Simcraft models single target, zero interference DPS of which exists zero times in Siege of Orgrimmar.  It's also possible to beat the Simcraft DPS, so the scale is meaningless.  A good value of DPS to be at can be found at Raidbots where you can see your DPS compared to others as a percentile. 

 

Rain of Fire shouldn't be in your opener unless there are multiple targets to hit.  It's too valuable of a GCD at the start when most procs are live.  Your prepot should last 22-24 seconds into combat and should be the last thing wearing off.  You want 2 CBs in the first 10 seconds which sounds difficult to do with the plethora of spells you're using including Doomguard.  The difference in using him at the start of battle, middle, or end of battle is less than half of a good Chaos Bolt.  His usage is rather flexible and you shouldn't fret using him at the start especially at the cost of a Chaos Bolt in the first 10 seconds.

What Zag said.

 

 

SimC is 5 kinds of useless for warlocks right now.

 

A note with RaidBots, you need to be uploading to worldoflogs.com for it to track and even then it will sometimes not track it right, but this is a uncommon bug so it shouldn't be to much of a worry.

 

When you post logs, please use warcraftlogs.com

My logs are to messed up for now and i know of many things that can be much better so logs won't be linked for the time being sorry =/ when i have cleaned it all upp a bit i will post them but that can take a few weeks. I have only been raiding on HC for 8 weeks and still trying to master the mechanics.

Mkay then, i will take RoF out of the opening, only used it to get the procs to get as much of my two first CB:s as possible. But still when i reach a total damage of 10m on a fight, all the other dps are ahead of me by so much as 7m so i think there is a lot in my opening that i miss.

Checked raidbots and wow, basically i suck :)

Thanks for the answer Master, much appreciated :)

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 8/10N NH 4/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review, make a character on our realm and inbox me, or hit me up on real ID (violentravi#1826).  Alternatively, if you are old school, please apply via our website:  http://www.adelante-guild.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Are you looking to experience content with a solid group, but you don't have the time or desire for Mythic raiding?  We might be a great fit!
      Our team is recruiting for normal and heroic mode Nighthold and beyond.  Flex raids mean you always have a raid slot.  The guild provides all raid consumables.
      Raid times:
      Tuesday and Thursdays, 8:00PM - 11:00PM EST. Only six hours a week (often less once fights are on farm).  
      Sunday evenings we often hold optional Alt raids.
      Recruitment needs:
      We are especially interested in Warlocks, Boomkins, Hunters, Death Knights, Demon Hunters, and Rogues. Even if you are not one of those classes, don't hesitate to reach out if we sound like a good fit for you.
      Requirements:
      We ask that you join us in Discord during raids, at least to listen.  Perform reasonably for your gear level in Normal and Heroic raid content.  Our guideline is ilvl 865 but we can work with you. Our raid schedule is light, so we ask that you try to make raids whenever possible.  We of course realize things come up sometimes. Contact:
      Fill out an application on our website: http://condescending.enjin.com/  Navigate to the recruitment forums for instructions. My main is Westvleteren-Zul'jin (battle tag: Westvleteren#1524). My recruitment partner is Aârøñ-Zul'jin (battle tag: cactusdoodle#1677).
