unholy dk dps at highmaul heroic.

3 posts in this topic

Hey guys as the topic says my problem is my single target dps. i believe i follow rotation correctly , but especially at imperator i can barely pull 20k dps. After i had checked logs to find out other unholy dks dpsi i see they have used blood boil a lot. But i do my raids with pugs, so they do not allow me use blood boil during intermission phase. my dps is struct around 18-20k(barely). and mage mobs like to fixate me a lot...

and i did not manage to kill the boss,so soul reaper out of question

so i am asking for help.

when the dbm pull comes, i call my minions + use first 1k str potion
apply outbreak
call my gargoyle
1x festering
(if i have full runic power spam death coil to enlarge my pet.)
1x festering
1x ss
empowered runic weapon
2x festering(if i dont have death runes)
death coil spam
2x ss or more
plague leech
outbreak or plague strike
ss with all my death runes.

my main is unholy. please dont consider my frost build.

and here is my toon

You can still blood boil when the big adds (aberations) come out and for all the replicated small adds in Phase4 if you reach there.

1- That doesnt change much but Defile prioritizes Dots, so better cast it before Outbreak if you can.

2- Use Empowered runic weapon when Plague Leech is on Cd, and You have no runes, no runic power.

3- You didnt mention it, but when your Ghoul is already transformed, and there is only 10-12sec remains. You must save your runic power high(between 60-90 rp) to immediatly boost him once he gets smaller. If you had a proc when 4sec left, save it too.

      So, we're clearing Mythic content at a steady pace and raiding only two days a week! I'm proud of the progress we've made but I know there is room to improve, on my part. I'm all ears and ready for any constructive criticism I can get. I don't deviate from the recommended rotation.

      I would like to improve my dps, I'm doing between 160-200k, but I'm not satisfied with this numbers, here you have some logs of the raid yesterday, I suffer a lot with Ursoc.
      I think I can do a lot more of damage, I have the legendary bracelets

      Hello there. I'm looking to try and improve my dps in raids. I'm not sure where too start or how too really read logs, but I do have links too them. Any tips or help is appreciated as I'm new too raiding and wow as a whole so I'd appreciate any advice I can get. Here's a link too my logs and my armory.
      Logs - ( died on this fight)
      Armory -'jaeden/valicia/
      my user name is Valicia as you can see on the armory, but I don't know how to link to my specific character log, sorry about that.

      Hey guys,
      Just wondering peoples thoughts on the 20% Haste Minimum for UH DPS.
      Who thinks it is absolutely crucial?
      I am looking at a bunch of recent drops i have that are basically same ilvl. 
      I run castigator and all of the pieces i want to swap in, will give me loads more crit, but drop my haste from 20% down to 16%.
      how detrimental do you think this will be if i make the change? my crit will sit at almost 40% up from 32%.
      Thanks in advance,

      Hey ,
      i have a question regarding the leg. bracers.
      Is there any change in playstyle and stat weights when u have  / use them ? 
      I guess one uses SS at 5 instead of 3 right ? to use it most efficent ?
