[Affliction] Need help optimizing DPS

3 posts in this topic

Well, I started the expansion as Destruction, and have been doing pretty good dps with it, but as I have been progressing in raids and such, I have encountered with more and more gear with haste/mastery/versatility, no crit, and I have been feeling that I'm stuck with my DPS because of the lack of crit, so I gave a shot to my Affliction spec that I used mostly for PVP.

 

The problem is, as much as I try and feel that I'm keeping good the uptime of my dots, my DPS in dummy goes no further of 13k DPS.

Maybe is the not so good levels of haste, or maybe I'm not doing something well in the rotation, so I came here looking for illumination here in Icy Veins.

 

Also, I don't know well the opener for fights very well with Affliction, so a rough idea would help a lot!

As far as stat priority goes, I understand is INT>HASTE>MASTERY. 

 

Thank you in advancement for helping!

 

Here is my askmrrobot page of my character:

How do I get logs of my combat in my character?

The Locky nailed it, read around and use some data found.

Also, personal experience advice - don't touch dummy. I have a very bad relationship with it, and looks like you too.sad.png 
Best way to test your dps it to go straight to raid/HC dungeons. Buffs affect your stats => your dps a lot more than you can think. plus it would be the most realistic test you can possibly get.

      Are you looking to experience content with a solid group, but you don't have the time or desire for Mythic raiding?  We might be a great fit!
      Our team is recruiting for normal and heroic mode Nighthold and beyond.  Flex raids mean you always have a raid slot.  The guild provides all raid consumables.
      Raid times:
      Tuesday and Thursdays, 8:00PM - 11:00PM EST. Only six hours a week (often less once fights are on farm).  
      Sunday evenings we often hold optional Alt raids.
      Recruitment needs:
      We are especially interested in Warlocks, Boomkins, Hunters, Death Knights, Demon Hunters, and Rogues. Even if you are not one of those classes, don't hesitate to reach out if we sound like a good fit for you.
      Requirements:
      We ask that you join us in Discord during raids, at least to listen.  Perform reasonably for your gear level in Normal and Heroic raid content.  Our guideline is ilvl 865 but we can work with you. Our raid schedule is light, so we ask that you try to make raids whenever possible.  We of course realize things come up sometimes. Contact:
      Fill out an application on our website: http://condescending.enjin.com/  Navigate to the recruitment forums for instructions. My main is Westvleteren-Zul'jin (battle tag: Westvleteren#1524). My recruitment partner is Aârøñ-Zul'jin (battle tag: cactusdoodle#1677).

      Hello hunters,
      i nees some help with the marksmanship rotation. I'm trying to follow the guide of azortharion
       
      In no-proc periods:  Arcane Shot until 95 Focus, then  Aimed Shot to not Focus cap and repeat. If  Windburst becomes available during one of these periods, use it immediately and generate focus with Arcane Shot afterwards. Then, towards the end of the  Vulnerable window, cast the 2 Aimed Shots with roughly 4 seconds remaining on  Vulnerable. When you get a proc: →  Marked Shot → Keep Cast  Arcane Shot once (twice with extremely high Haste) so that there is only ~4 seconds remaining on Vulnerable → 2x  Aimed Shots.  
      But i really have some diffcult. Usually i'm doing this:
      - If vulnerable is down: cast windurst if is up or marked shot -> 1x arcane shot -> 2x aimed shot
      But really, i never have enough focus to do this and a lot of time i can cast only 1 aimed shot.
       
      I dont understand.

      Hi,
       
      Heading into Nighthold for the first time tonight and now sure how to spec.
      ST?
      AOE?
      MoC or Volley? Is Stampede worth taking?
       
      Help please.

      I play in Asia, since I got back to China, with the great firewall of China, its such a pain to still stay in US servers.
       
      please note that this is not a power build, but can perform pretty well.
       
      Anyway, lets start.
       
      The game is full of archon wizards and flashfire wizards, it will be fresh to see some new variations, after some testing, so I came up with this: the CC Blaster.
      A build can CC the entire screen and hit really hard while teleport around untouched with 5 times of your life shield on! Sound to good to be true ;)
      Read on.
       
      ----------------------
      Skills:
      Primary: Magic Missile: Conflagrate Secondary: Arcane Orb: Obliteration Button 1: Blizzard: Frozen Solid Button 2: Black Hole: Supermassive Button 3: Teleport: Calamity Button 4: Slow Time: Point of Return  
       
      Passive: 
      Galvanizing Ward;  Arcane Dynamo;  Evocation;  Unstable Anomaly;  
       
      (Teleport: Reversal is also an awesome rune, but it is really bad for travel and easily messed up when in dire situation making panic error happens a lot, if you perform well, Reversal can makes you pop out from nowhere and gone for the mobs with infinite teleports 1 second CD, seeing mobs mindless chase you back and forth, especially with Slow time to Slow/stun and making enemy missile slow motion, managing the battle field )
       
      You hit pretty hard with Obliteration rune, can 2-shot anything in TX including Rift Guardians, most will die in one hit.
       
      --------------------------
      Tal Rasha 6 set proc with the following skills:
       
      {Fire} Magic Missile: Conflagrate {Arcane} Arcane Orb: Obliteration {Cold} Blizzard: Frozen Solid {Lightning}: Black Hole: Supermassive {Option Arcane}: Teleport: Calamity  
       
      ------------------------
      Gears:
      [Tal Rasha 5 sets] with [Royal Ring] for full set bonus [Delsere 3 sets] with [Royal Ring] for up to 4 set Bonus [Bastion will Ring set] for signature spell & spenders alteration damage increase. [Unstable Scepter Wand] for Arcane Orb double trigger. [Triumvirate Source] for 600% Arcane Orb damage increase. [Ashnagarr's Blood Bracer] for 520% life of shield increase  
       
      (Note: tal belt & tal amulet must be taken, as it is a un-conflicting slot; others are by choices as long as the two sets bonus goal is achieved, tal armor also need to be taken for the IAS roll)
       
      ---------------
      In Cube:
      Mirrorball (3 conflagrate missile) The Shame of Delsere (AP Rege & Faster Speed of Magic Missile) Ring of Royal Grandeur (make wearing two sets possible)  
       
      (you may use the aether walker teleport no cd in weapon slot. but with so many spell u need to cast and rotate, its pointless to have a no-cd teleport in most situations.
      also, since you cast so many magic missiles so might as well increase its damage potential.
       
      in-geom is not needed, since spawn cc will have diminishing returns, and you can't use teleport too often with spells need to rotating.
       
      The Furnace in the other hand is a good choice if you need more elites damage.)
       
      --------------
      Gem:
      Molten Wildebeest's Gizzard (200% life shield) Simplicity's Strength (increase signature damage and reliable heal) Gogok of Swiftness (for IAS & CDR)  
       
      ------------------------------
      Basic function layout as below:
       
      Offense (with Gogok Gem IAS)
      1. Arcane Orb: Obliteration  2. Magic Missile: Conflagrate /with Mirrorball & Simplicity Gem 3. Tal set meteors 4. Arcane Dynamo Passive & Triumvirate Souce Combo 5. Bastion Will Ring Set.  
       
      Defense
      1. Tal set 4 set bonus 2. Tal set 6 set bonus 3. Del set 4 set bonus 4. Galvanizing Ward with Blood Bracer 5. Molten Wildbeest Gem with Blood Bracer  
       
      Mobility
      1. Teleport with CDR & Gogok Gem  
       
      Life Rege
      1. LoH with fast IAS 2. Life Rege with not taking damage (Molten Wildebeest Gem) 3. Magic Missle with Simplicity Gem  
       
      CC
      1. Freeze CC with {Blizzard: Frozen Solid} 2. Disable CC with {Blackhole: Supermassive} 3. Stun CC with {teleport: Calamity} 4. Slow CC with {Slow Time} 5. Stun CC with {Slow Time: Point of No Return}  
       
      With all five CC you can make the whole screen disabled!
      ------------------------
       
      Build favors Cooldown reduction & Attack Speed
       
      IAS makes your AP Rege super fast, and making magic Missile a viable AOE skill, and you can move out your location faster.
       
      CDR makes your an acceptable teleport cooldown and can span blackhole to gather for Arcane Orb Obliteration kill.
      Obliteration also is the fastest travel rune.
       
      That concludes the guide, I'm on low paragon level and can not test beyond TX Rift. If anyone interested, can test it out on high GRs for end game performance.
      So far it is a fun build to play.
       
      Just keep in mind that you are a ranged Blaster build, need CC to survive. You will be crashed if you go into Melee range. So be careful with your teleport as it still has close to 4 secs CD with CDR. 
      If you need to teleport on top of mobs to disable mob skill, followed by blizzard freeze is recommanded.
       
      Any feedback is welcome.
