Help With Demo/Affliction Logs

7 posts in this topic

Heya, I just recently tried to pick up Demo and I feel that I'm a bit lackluster at playing the spec in general. Would really appreciate any help I can get regarding issues you guys may see with the logs. Item level is currently 652, but I believe it was mid 640s earlier in the night.

Currently cannot link my armory due to an armory bug, trinkets are Grandiose Power and 640 Sandman's Pouch, all enchants / gems are Mastery, have 7% Haste / ~12% Mastery (Swapped to Destro currently)/ 12.91% Crit unbuffed. I was running GoSyn, AD, and Demonbolt most of the fights tonight as Demo. Supremacy, AD, and SB:H on the one fight I played as Affliction. I was not using Glyph of Imp Swarm at all tonight either.

Feel free to sift through and critique any log you may find please! I really am just looking for absolutely anything I can do to up my DPS just however small or large I can. I feel like I'm doing something massively wrong to be that low on damage.

Really appreciate it in advance if you guys get the time to look through these for me!

Kargath looks good. Will go a bit further once I pop onto my actual computer. GoSyn isn't really any better than GoSup. It's marginal, and depends on proc rates TBH. Don't imp swarm. lol.

Affliction (Twins), quit using SB:Haunt.  You had a 73% uptime and it's considerably out damaged by Demonic Servitude.  Also, you used a potion during execute instead of lining it up with Dark Soul and a trinket. 

 

Demonology (Kargath), Demonic Synergy is going to scale better at later item levels.  Swap to Supremacy.  For proof, you had a crummy 12% uptime on Synergy on Kargath. 

 

Your damage distributions and DoT uptimes are good.  Just get more gear.  Doing well at 653.  Swap your talents around for small, noticeable gains.

Imp Swarm has its uses!

Limited, and requires pretty advanced knowledge of Demonology and the encounter.  Better to advise against it while displaying clear struggles with the spec.

I throw in my own logs here. No need to start a new thread.

Yesterday I tested Demonology in every encounter with my old raid group on normal mode. I was lucky the day before and rolled the caster staff from tectus hc. I noticed a decent dps increase with the new weapon and a nhc robe.

I was surprised when looking at the log afterwards - low dot uptimes.

I have the problem that I can't build fury fast enough between DB cast windows. When switching on adds I forget to refresh dots on bosses. I am doing mistakes when focusing too much on void zones or other boss mechanics - need to concentrate more during the encounters -.-

Meta and DS wasn't always used properly.
