Demo lack of dps

10 posts in this topic

So I went demo, after a few attempts of dungeons I realized my damage was no very good so I once again decided to come here, after going over my logs myself, I noticed my dot uptimes were low, but I would like more tips, and thoughts of what you guys do to improve

So first thing's first: fuck you and the font you rode in on.

Looks to me like your biggest issue is really poor management of dot up times. Witherbark they're a little subpar, and your DPS is good. Xeri they're god awful, and your DPS shows. But I just gave them a quick skim from vaca.

I looked at the arch mage sol fight: Besides the mentioned dot uptimes, you have to work on your spell priority and HoG usage. The first 2 charges of HoG went pretty well, then you used 1 completely alone and forgot about HoG for about 30 seconds. then you used both charges immediately, effectively wasting HoG uptime and therefore fury gain.

You used shadowbolt 10 seconds before the fight ended. At this time the boss should definitely be under 25 %, so use soulfire.

You used AD with glyph on a very short fight, which means a huge loss of 10 seconds uptime on DS(40 sec vs 30 sec). The fight length wouldn´t have allowed more than 3 times the demonbolt foursome, but I hugely doubt you could afford a third time fury-wise, so 2 usages of DS is all you need.

You could have used wrath storm directly at the beginning for a possible third use. 

After all you lacked either the mastery or haste buff. Besides buff food, flasks and pots, this should also buff your dps. I have to mention that my remarks depend hugely on the fact that you somehow know the kill time will be short, but for the 4th boss in an instance, you had some time to evaluate the dps of your fellow dungeon mates.

I am curious why to use Soulfire below 25% Health?

I'm still learning the ropes to Demo myself but you have a passive that grants you a stack of molten core any time you Soulfire someone who is below 25% hp, therefore making it free in a sense

Because below 25% health you always get a Soulfire with Molten Core buff, i.e. reduced cast time(lower than shadow bolt) and mana cost.

 

Edit: As KKillroyV2 already mentioned, demo got a passive for that ;)

      Hello all.  I was just reading up on what addons Icy Veins suggested and noticed AffDot was one of them for Affliction Warlock use.  However, when I took a look at the this addon at Curse, it shows it is really old and has not been updated for Legion, according the information at Curse.
      World of Warcraft    6,805 Monthly Downloads
      Supports: 6.0.31    004,921 Total Downloads
      Updated Feb 19, 2015    Created Nov 6, 2012
      Does anyone know if there is a replacement for this addon since it seems not to have been updated for some time?
      Thanks in advance for any info.

      Sindorei Council, a family-friendly and socially active guild has been active since 7/24/2007 (BC drop), currently 6/7 (H)EN.  Seeking DPS (notably ranged) for completion of Heroic and preparation to move on Nighthold.  
      We are not a hardcore progression guild - have never been and don't seek to create that atmosphere.  We are an incredibly welcoming social guild with a core raid component of very skilled players who have enough real-life going on that one night/week (occasionally 2) is what we push for.   We've reached 6/7 H-EN on one night/week. 
      Are you a good fit?  If you enjoy playing your class very well, are reliable to be on at the given time(s), yearn for a fun PG atmosphere in Gchat and Discord with mostly adults, and feel like one (occasionally 2) night per week is ideal for the time you want to put into raiding then we may be a good fit for you.  We help others get better and have more fun in guild, raiding or not ( be it through Questing, M+, WQ's, Roics, Pet Battles, etc.). We know our members' backstory and strive to make our guild a family.  Very active FB page and Discord.  
      Schedule:   Current main core raid night is Thursday from 7:30 EST - 10:30 EST (Bloodhoof Server time).  Sunday nights are an alternative night for us.
      Progress:  7/7 (N) EN, 5/7 (H) EN
      Loot:  All Personal - hand down to people who need 
      NEEDS: 
      - Warlock (any spec)
      - Boomkin
      - Hunter
      - Arms Warrior w/ Prot offspec (another skilled dps that is comfortable off spec as Tank works well also (Feral/Guardian, WW/BM, etc.)
      Interested?:
      BTAG: Lorienawk#1319 or Mango#1525.  
      Thanks and Happy Hunting!
