What is "good" dps at a certain gear lvl?

9 posts in this topic

Just another lock struggling to keep up on the dps charts in Heroics right now and getting a little bit frustrated. Virtually every Dungeon and Target dummy I practice my rotation on I max at about 30k dps. Im not sure if this is decent at ilvl 446 or I need to work on my rotation (which is a pretty basic and common destro rotation).

armory: http://us.battle.net...ofdoom/advanced

rotation: CoE, immo, conflag,(dark soul) chaos, conflag, incin till ember up, conflag, chaos and so on. aoe is always situational.. Thanks in advance for any input.

your dps is fine with that ilvl.

HCs are rubbish for judging your DPS since you have a ramp-up time and most mobs are dead within seconds. Also, you are probably comparing yourself to people running the HCs with 470+ ilvl as a lot of people still do them for the valor points.

Thanks for the reply.

After looking over this site a bit more I found a slight flaw using chaos bolt after conflag. switched it up and got 32k on a dummy

This is a warlock forum, not a hunter one. And how much DPS you get on quest mobs is meaningless.

Very true. I only see 22-25 on quest mobs.

The main reason behind my post is that I used to top dps in groups all the time in the BC and WotLK days then took a very long break from the game, now I come back and I always suck in comparison. A 460 gear lvl monk tank in my guild slays me in dps. figured I was doing something horribly wrong but Locks just aren't up there in PVE anymore.

I wasn't commenting on your post. But locks definitely ARE up there in terms of PVE right now. They're one of the strongest PVE classes in the game. You mentioned dungeons, are you talking overall or bosses? DPS on dungeon trash is meaningless. Tanks often have high damage on trash

Tanks have a passive ability called 'Vengance' - basically means, the more/harder they get hit, the harder they hit back.

Dont let it scare you; on single target, tanks will go back down to a reasonable DPS.

446 gear isnt really anything special. From this point forward it won't talk a lot to be hitting 50-60dps though.

      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
