LF some SPriest Help

8 posts in this topic

Hello all! I am looking for some help for one of my raiders. Her DPS seems a bit lower for her ilvl. Unfortunately, with the new changes to SPriest, I am unable to provide the help that she deserves. I'm looking for any advice and was wondering if anybody could take a look at our logs and potentially analyze them. Any assistance with this would be greatly appreciated:

The SPriest in Question is Sassenachh

Thank you,
Rohhan

Low gain on Shadow orbs compared to the other priest, (her with 34, them with 38(for Butcher, this issue was consistent through other fights)), whilst it's not bad it's enough orbs to make up a DP which means she lost one DP which is.. a DPS loss)

On the more movement fights her shadow orb gain drops a LOT. She *needs* to make sure she's using mind blast on CD and using shadow word: death on CD in execute phase. On fights with adds - shadow word: death snipe! It gives orbs + DPS.

I know movement is hard for shadow, since a lot of stuff has a cast-time. But there are things she *can* do on the move, her mind blast, her shadow word: death, power word: shield since there's no disc priest and she's using reflective shield. 
On fights with adds that will live the duration of the DoTs she should be multi-dotting. (Tectus, Brackenspore, Ogron(dots on one, other DPS on other))

Also, for HEAVY movement, I.E Tectus and Ogron, she should take the Surge of Darkness talent because it gives free instant mind spikes. 

Also, it looked like she's glyphed shadow word: death? If she has I wouldn't do that.
Could probably also cast Halo a bit more.
Anyways, I'm gonna leave it at that because that's probably all the advice I can give(I'm no shadow priest, I have basic knowledge so you get basic-level help from me) So I'm gonna let someone who knows shadow better to take over from here.
(Also, for future people who come here, the armoury of the priest in question is here that way you don't need to go searching like I did)

Editing an afterthought: when you relay this advice back to her, I would recommend to her that if she needs further help that she maybe come herself, that way there's no risk of miscommunication through a middle-man such as yourself. But I'm glad to see your trying to help your raiders improve rather than just telling them they need to improve but they need to do so alone or get kicked or something like that, that's always a good thing to do and not something that's always done.

Arright let's pick a fight...  H Kargath kill.  She scored 15k dps to the other priest's 20.

 

==Kargath==

 

It appears that Surge of Darkness talent was taken for this fight.  I don't think there's enough movement to justify it, I would go with Insanity instead.

 

Didn't potion during bloodlust (did prepot though.)

 

Execution priority should be to cast Dev Plague only when you're at max shadow orbs, or MB and SW:Death are on cooldown.  There's no rush to spend at 4- shadow orbs.  (it's hard to say this for 100% sure though, the logging this time was a little inaccurate in regards to shadow orbs.)

 

SW:Death was not cast anywhere near often enough during execution phase.

 

She appears to be using a dotweave, which surprised me given her dps.

 

She left Shadowfiend off cooldown for 48 seconds.  Not a problem in and of itself on this fight since it lasts less than 6 minutes, but potentially indicitive of other problems. 

 

That's all I can see for now. 

 

I echo all of Kulia's sentimates above.  Kudos to you, and please send her here if more help is required.  We'd be glad to assist.  Good luck

Hello, people pretty much covered what needs to be said about her performance, but I would like to add that since she is using clarity of power and I see from her log MS and MB are her top damage so she's using the MS/MB dot weaving rotation; gem and enchant mastery instead of haste.

Thank you!

Hmmm.  Actually, that is true.  Haste is important up to 15%.  I'd replace those enchants with mastery.  Also, no neck enchant.

My gear was worse than hers when I did h kargath (blues and 545-549 ilvl) doing 23k Dps to her 15k. I feel that mastery is the easiest stat to get up by 1% compared to haste. And kargarth is pretty stationary if you position yourself properly. Her execute phase could be way better.

I would suggest to her to never waste her shadow orbs. If you have double swd and your first swd gives you 5 orbs, hit dp then do the next swd and try to keep mb off cd as much as you can without over capping dp which should be easy to do.

      now ive tried diffrent ways of doing my rotation but i still cant seem to "hold it up" i am high up at start...til like 30-60sec into the fight then i start falling behind:(

      So iam willing to give out 1 token to whom ever can give me a reasonable, understandable solution that works for me
      (i know i didnt optimize my trueshot, prepots etc etc) But the problem is after trueshot and my troll racial is "over" i start falling:(
      this is what i wanna figure out, ive tried to do Aimed and then barrage/windburst etc but i seem to starve on focus, ive tried the 2aimed then some cd's but seems i fall behind on Aimedshot dmg then:(

      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/xZf9NW1KV6nyLgXQ#fight=30&type=damage-done&source=153          <----Log of the actuall kill
      here i got run over, but still my numbers are abysmal  (7% pref(

      here is the same rotation but a wipe  (29% pref)
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/xZf9NW1KV6nyLgXQ#fight=28&type=damage-done&source=153 
       
      another wipe, same rotation but only 9% pref
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/xZf9NW1KV6nyLgXQ#fight=27&type=damage-done&source=153 

      So even with the same rotation (atleast i think and feel like i do the same) i can go from 7% pref to 29% pref, i know alot of dmg is RNG but i cant be THAT Unlucky
      id say my avg preformance is about 10% so iam not unlucky iam sucky:(
      but i need to understand what i need to work on:( rotation i know...but is it as simple as to get the azortian down to the perfection?
      cause ive seen other hunters do my "get as many aimedshot as possible into vuln phase" do like 98% pref...but when i do it i fall down to 9.8:)

      tnx for any input and help

      and ill be more then willing to hand out a token for a guide/suggestion that actually works for me

      I really could use some help on my single target DPS. For some reason I can't push my dps over 330-340k over a 4-5 minutes fight.
      My stats:
      Ilvl 880
      Crit: 47%
      Haste: 13%
      Mastery: 14%
      Versatility: 6%
       
      I'm doing the 1, 2, 3, 3, 1, 1, 1 momentum build, and can easily hold the buff going about 55-60% of the fight.
      Couple of Ursoc fights mythic logs:
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/D8k1AyNqfYCV3h4K#fight=2&type=damage-done&source=11      21. November
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/AQanpPMmtCLVbzXG#fight=2&type=damage-done&source=17    23. November
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/BybPcXG2Mx47Kd1F#fight=2&type=summary&source=19              30.November
       
      If you look at the last one I did mistakes like not using chaos blades three times, and there was no potion at the end. But momentum had a 61% uptime which I'm happy with. For some reason my chaos strike only had 30% crit, which really affected my dmg output, and even made my throw glaive number 1. I know all the basics of playing this class, but I always feel like there's something missing. Just about 100k dps is missing :P
       
      When I'm practicing VS a dummy I'm doing about 300k DPS after 60 mill of dmg... Isn't that a bit low? And that's when I'm doing everything right, I think...
       
      If anyone can find anything I'm doing wrong I would very much appreciate it! I'm always low on the rankings and it's making me sad :/
       
      Or is it all because of the two legendaries? Belt and the ring?
