DPS Help // Dispatch

6 posts in this topic

Hey everyone; I've been raiding with my guild and learned about warcraft logs yesterday; so I tried it out and recorded my fight against Ko'ragh to compare against better assassination rogues, to figure out how to improve. Upon doing so; I noticed a lot of the "better" players spam dispatch EARLY ON in the fight... am I missing something? How do you do that?

 

Here's a link for one Ko'ragh fight in which they do it: Link

 

From 00:00:23.500 to 00:00:27.516 he gets 5 dispatches off without any other spellcasts inbetween. Learning how to do this would likely increase my DPS by at least 1-2k. Is there a talent I'm missing somewhere?

 

Also from 00:01:49.042 to 00:01:59.751 he does it again.

 

You can tell at 00:02:43.136 he's finally under 35% and using it "correctly" since it's all he spams for combo points. But those prior "bursts" of Dispatch...?

 

Thanks a lot.

I have absolutely no idea. I can't think of any reason why this would be the case, unless it has something to do with counting his shield as his HP and so is letting him cast Dispatch at under 35% shield. 

 

I'll send the log to some other friends and see if they have any idea

Yes, turns out that's exactly what it is, although it's intended. I never noticed since I don't play Assassination... Maybe I should though, for that fight. I'm going to have to test it...

 

I'll add it to the mechanics post

Thank you kindly.

 

I don't look at my icons during the fight so I never noticed. I think I'll add a huge 1 x 1 ability bar with Dispatch on it or something lol.

I was thinking the exact same thing, haha!  Normally that's a Sub fight for me, but man, free dispatches... sounds like it's worth a shot.  Good find all!

It's certainly worth it most of the time. There's a significant improvement with Assassination for this fight (and only this fight) if your group has low DPS and he stays with a small shield for a long time

 

I have a feeling that it won't matter soon though; as groups get more gear and can push through the shield faster, the advantage that Assassination has will drop off very quickly

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 8/10N NH 4/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, Rogue, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review, make a character on our realm and inbox me, or hit me up on real ID (violentravi#1826).  Alternatively, if you are old school, please apply via our website:  http://www.adelante-guild.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Who we are
      <Hollow> is a semi-hardcore guild created by a group of friends, experienced players, that raided HC together in WOTLK. We reunited and transfered to the same realm to create a guild, or more accurately, a home. We keep a very friendly environment in and out of raids, oftenly joining discord to chat even if we aren't doing anything. Guild activities include but are not limited to mythic dungeons, mythic + and raiding.
      Our goals
      Our current progress is 4/7M and 3/3HC. Our current goal is to down mythic EN to gear up and also prepare for Nighthold!
      What we are looking for
      Recruitment currently closed for Mythic raiding with the exception of 1 Shadow Priest.
      People that want only heroics can join regardless of specs. Socials are still welcome!
      Our raiding schedule
      Our current raiding schedule is 3 raids a week for 3 hours:

      Wednesday 8pm to 11pm server time - NH Normal
      Sunday 8pm to 11pm server time - EN Mythic
      Tuesday 8pm to 11pm server time - EN Heroic / ToV Heroic
      The guild is using DKP system
      NOTE: We have added a catch up system for new recruits. When you get past the trial phase and join the ranks as a raider of our guild, you also earn 200 dkp as bonus and when you prove yourself that you are worthy of a core spot, you also get 300 dkp as bonus. We wont leave anyone behind no matter how new while at the same time, drawing a line for our core, active raiders that have been with us since the start.

      Hey yall! so i'm writing this because i just want to undesrtand something. my friend and i compared numbers today because we are both shadow priests albeit i have a higher ilvl than he does maybe by around 7 im sitting at 863 . 
      what happend was during the last fight we decided to do the same -ish rotations meaing we both had vamp touch and shadow pain up on the same boss at all times.
      at the end of the fight i found something odd,
      his vamp touch dealt 4.99m dmg with max hit at 315 and minimum 
      mine only dealt 3.71 with max hit at 335 but take this in, minimum hit at 17k LOLLL
      another thing that got my attention
      his max hit on mind blast was 512 k, while mine was only at 281k.
      his crit and mastery stands at 20% and 40%, mine at 24% and 42%
      his haste stands at 27 and mine stands at 24
      can anyone explain this? at all? does it make any sense at all LOL
