[Balance] Help DPS

6 posts in this topic

I'm trying to help a friend of mine out with balance DPS, but I don't play boomkin much so I'm not sure how good what I am telling her is.

 

Armory:

I think her gear setup is reasonable, 10289 haste breakpoint then favoring crit after that,

I pointed her to the solar opener you have listed on this site, I'm not 100% sure she is doing it right, but she did start off at over 800k.  I'm not sure if she could have gone higher.

 

Her DoT uptime seems sporadic across fights.  On this particular one she had moonfire about 94% and sunfire at about 86%.  I told her she needs to try and watch those better, but not sure if there is anything she can get to make her life easier.

 

Nature's Grace uptime was 74%.  That seems low, she had one point where she went about 2:30 in where she went a while with the buff down.  I'm not sure how to tell why.

 

Last thing, she had 63 shooting star procs, and 40 starsurge casts.  I'm not certain if that is a reasonable number or not.

 

Anything else I can look at?

 

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can give!

I can't really go into it on my phone, but you sound like you're doing fine looking at her logs, and what you're telling me says she's got it down but only needs practice and repition. That's said, 6.0 is most likely dropping next week, meaning everything about Boomkin changes. This will probably her last raid week with Boomkin as it is now. I recommend she start looking at the beta and ptr info to start preparing for 6.0 instead of putting more time into live.

OK, thanks so much for your response.  Taking a quick look at your 6.0 survival guide, I see what you mean.  I didn't know it was changing that severely.  I'll give her some homework to do for next week :)

Thanks for the offer Tusi.

After looking at the 6.0 changes, I don't think it makes much sense for her to worry about trying to change anything this week.

Personally I think the new balance spec looks like it will be more fun, but I don't play it much as it is.  I'm more of a tank kind of person.

She has been asking me for help and I kind of got to beyond my knowledge of boomkin so I came here to make sure I wasn't leading her astray.

The best advice I can give you is to have her come here directly. There's a limit to how much anyone can be helped through a middle man.
