A couple of questions.

3 posts in this topic

Hello all ..


Was just wondering if this dps is okey to be a casual raider and I started to play lock in the start of MOP ( got tired of pressing 1 on my mage tongue.png ).. i know that i do ALOT of mistakes... and there is a whole lot of rom for improvement .. actually there is a great wall of china for that.. .

( I'm not looking to be hardcore style,nor always be the best but somewhere what i can tickle dat huntas neck abit more would be amusing)  




<-- logs from our normal run last nigth.. kinda look away from the spoils figth.. as i got distracted with something IRL,and missed out on alot of importanted proc's that could have change the meter for me tongue.png ,  also please ignore the Figths before Nazgrim as they were from another raid that was not to be in that log...


also i was wondering if it is worth upgrade this to full :   combined with  (not upgraded yet,but will be next week)    and use those 2 over a full upgraded

Ok, looking at Malkorok here:

You completely missed out on your first and second BBoY procs, as you didn't use a single CB within them.  You also delayed DS and BF until PBI procced, you should use these right on pull if only to increase ember generation for when PBI does proc, even if it is 20 seconds in.  

You should've used your second potion at the same time as DS, or at least as soon as PBI procced the second time.  Because of this, you missed an extra 4k int on your first 2 CBs during that ember dump.  

You only snapshot immolate with the 4pc twice, out of 11 possible times.  

I'd say get some WAs to track your procs or if you already have some, make them more noticeable.

Your attitude seems to be "I don't want to be good, I just want to suck less than this other guy." We can't tell you how to do that, we can only tell you how to be good.


Take a look at this log for Malkorok.


This shows where you cast Chaos Bolt (the vertical lines) in relation to your trinket procs/Dark Soul (the shaded areas).


First off, don't wait until PBI procs in your opener to use Dark Soul. Use it immediately so you can get two Chaos Bolts off at the end of BBoY's proc. At 5 stacks, BBoY's proc is better than PBI. It's not worth waiting for PBI in the opener, ever, for any reason. You should have been able to get two off during BBoY and probably one more off during DS.


Basically, what I'm seeing in this entire fight, is you're completely ignoring your better trinket proc.  You're popping DS as soon as you see PBI up and spamming Chaos Bolt, but you literally don't cast a single Chaos Bolt during Black Blood's proc anywhere in the fight except for the time it proc'd during PBI.  Black Blood is only a good trinket if you're going to use it. When it procs, wait until there's about 6 ( no less than 5.5, no more than 6.8) seconds left and start casting two Chaos Bolts back to back.


Read Zagam's guide here in the forums to fix your opener. It's posted in too many places to type it out again.

      Nothing To Lose is recruiting exceptional players for Mythic Emerald Nightmare and Legion progression.
      Raid times are 7-11pm Central Standard Time on Wednesday and Friday nights.

      We are mainly interested in Ranged DPS at the moment, however
      we are always willing to accept talented and experienced raiders.
      The following classes would be highly preferred:
      -Mage (Fire)
      -Priest (Shadow)
      -Druid (Balance)

      For Mythic content, we expect our raiders to be consistent both in their attendance and performance. We are a generally laid back and sarcastic crowd, but our 20 spots will be filled by those who:
      -Show up on time with full consumables
      -Know the ins and outs of their class
      -Know the boss mechanics 
      -Push their numbers to highest possible in their spec.

      <NTL> has been on Cho'Gall since the Burning Crusade, and we intend to be around through Legion and beyond. Join us for some !@#$-talking, meter-whoring, and good old-fashioned purps.

      The easiest way to apply is to contact myself (GM) directly via PM or in-game mail.
