How could i do better with my ele?

4 posts in this topic

Hello,

 

i finally downed Garrosh in heroic with my raid group, but i feel like i could perform better with my current gear. I just don't know where to look...

 

Here's my armory:

I gemmed mostly for mastery, but took in some haste-gems because i think the 92% mastery is enough for me..

 

logs from garrosh:

my main concern is garrosh, but maybe i'm doing things wrong in the other fights too, so here are some logs for all bosses, if you want to take a look:

(no siegecrafter or paragons, because i had to heal the last times wink.png)

 

 

for my rotation, i think i do everything as i should...

keeping flameshock up, Lava burst on cd with UE before it, keeping flame-totem up and lightningbolt as filler, earthshock at 6-7 stacks

 

 

 

would be nice to see if you can find any mistakes i do, please let me here about it smile.png

First off, congratulations on your kill!

 

Simcraft puts you around 400k on "sit still and beat up a dummy" and ~355k on "helter skelter".  With that in mind, looking at Sha of Pride and Malkorok you seem to be doing fine (until you died, of course).

 

There's a few things here and there I could point out; for example, on Malkorok I noticed you didn't use your second potion until after Ascendance had finished, and on Nazgrim you didn't use your second potion at all.  Nothing else is really jumping out at me from a cursory look at your logs; damage breakdown seems reasonable, you don't seem to be wasting any Lava Surge procs, none of the usual suspects.

 

I think you're doing fine.  I wouldn't worry about Searing Totem, by the way; never delay anything else for it, its DPET is barely more than Lightning Bolt.  It's a miniscule gain over just not using it at all, and I generally only cast it when I have nothing else to do, or to replace a lightning bolt when I'm holding a full Fulmination stack for an add that's spawning in a few seconds.

Thanks for you answer, i'm glad to here that :)...

so it's mostly my gear, that could be better so i can do more dps? I mean besides using potions in all fights :D

 

Are there any secrets for us shamans how to get out more dps? I mean boss specific, because the guide in this forum is just for nh, maybe you guys know some neat tips for hc encounters. :)

There a couple of small things that you can do to improve your DPS for sure.  But, you shouldn't worry too much about the super long fights, or fights with heavily exploitable multitargets.  (IE: A warlock should beat you easily on Garrosh, if they're not assigned to specific mechanics.)

 

From your Malkorok:

  

You could use some work on Flame Shock's uptime.  87% is low!  You should be aiming for ~98-100%.

 

Watch your Unleash Elements cooldown MUCH closer.  You have only 12 out of a possible 17 casts!

 

Watch your Fulminations better!  You waste a large number of procs during the middle of the fight, and you can even cast Earth Shock on the move.  (You can tell when you waste procs by mousing over the plateaus, and looking for 'gains 6000 mana from X's Rolling Thunder'.)
