[Ret] Help my DPS!

4 posts in this topic

Hey guys, 

After joining a new guild we are quite comfortably clearing SoO Heroic in 2 nights. Although I still feel my DPS is lacking a little to others. I know ret is in a bad space at the moment but I still think I am a bit below what I should be at. 

As per my other post and getting the suggestion of using warcraftlogs instead of worldoflogs, with advanced combat logging turned on in client. I have uploaded my logs here. 

Thanks in advance for any help or advice!

I will take a look at it after I get some sleep :) let's hope no one beats me to the punch, could I also ask you to post your armory as well as possibly specific fights you feel like your lacking on?

There isn't any fights in particular. I would say the only fights I feel like I'm pulling my weight properly is galakras and spoils. I died to the spell the adds do to everyone nearby in spoils the time we killed them though. 

I wasn't in for all the fights and we called it after Siegecrafter, so the fights included are Nazgrim till Siegecrafter.

Thanks for looking into it! Hope there's something glaringly obvious I can fix!

There's my armory. I have been considering keeping my haste at 40% and going mastery after that but I have read so many conflicting views on it and at the moment I'm trying to reach 50% haste then go mastery.

Alright well I gotta say you look pretty geared, so that's good, I'd like to suggest something though, recently I've been going crit/haste build and I think you should try it out (since you have thok's) all it is, is reforging all mastery, hit, exp, to crit, and all gems will be haste, hit/haste, exp/haste, or str/haste, and going for 50% haste is helping me too since it's easy to get to now. Outside of that, if your dps seems a little low it could be to do with the strats you guys use, like if you guys are off nazgrim on D stage, or if you're put on add duty on Naz,

 

AS for you dying on Spoils, you seem to have a zero usage of Divine Protection, with EEoG you should have it up for every other Shadow Volley or special, if not for every one, even outside of that it should be used nearly on CD  if you see a lot of adds up too, you can always pop devo or even bubble, I had to do it myself a few times during progression, it hurts a lot but it helps to watch the statues. This applies to pretty much every fight, you have very low Divine Protection Usage, it should be used as often as possible and 100% when you know you're going to take some heavy damage.

 

Your number job as a dps is to do 2 things, To kill stuff and to survive long enough to kill stuff. You need to make sure you use all the defensive skills you have to their full extent. 

 

 

As for the dps issue. Just get used to the fights, you're been doing Heroic for about a month it takes time to practice and get the strats down to where you can figure out what you need to do, but keep coming to this thread, keep sharing your logs and I'll keep helping you, but for now I wanna see ya focus a bit on those defensive skills ;D But you're doing pretty well on your own!
