Fine tuning boomkin performance

4 posts in this topic

First off, thank you guys for great discussions! I've learned a lot and continue to do so!

 

I'd appreciate an evaluation of this log: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/kR7tJjwYqX4dQCnB#fight=9&type=damage-done&source=150

 

Here is my armory: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/Mal'Ganis/Snape/simple

 

This is the most accurate representation of a Patchwerk fight available (no Butcher knock-backs). I did not go into the stands and I never had to move. With my item level being 662, I should expect higher numbers. Take note that I had a 636 cloak on during this kill, as well as normal boots. 

 

When inspecting logs with the same ilvl and situation (I mainly checked Butcher, which only furthers my confusion since I should be able to perform better on this fight than Butcher), I simply cannot out-damage people with similar item level. Granted, I'm comparing myself to the best boomkins that are logging, but there is no excuse why I can't do the same. 

 

The largest thing that pops out for me is that my spells simply hit less hard. I may attribute my weapon ilvl for this (everyone else with these parses have heroic and mythic weapons), but I can't imagine the spellpower making too much a difference. I understand that I should have the mastery enchant on my weapon, but money is tight and our raid hasn't had a weapon drop in our full heroic clears in two weeks (otherwise I'd have that heroic weapon correctly enchanted in a heartbeat). 

 

Here's my opener:

2s-Incarnation

1s-Potion

Pull-CA/berserking/shards

Moonfire

Starsurge

SF.....

 

I realized the silliness that was using haste actives during instant casts, so I've moved them to the starfire cast since this log. In a typical fight, I'll use my 2nd potion at 3m. 

 

I appreciate all that you guys do here, and I hope I can get some insight on what I'm doing incorrectly!

You're putting up some pretty spectacular numbers for having a 645 weapon. DoT uptime is perfect. However, there is one major problem: you keep overwriting your Empowerment buffs with new applications of Starsurge. In order not to waste the buff, you should substitute Starfall whenever you need to cast Starsurge, but shouldn't because you have your current eclipse cycle's Empowerment buff active.

Berserking is the troll racial for 15% haste.

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 8/10N NH 4/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review, make a character on our realm and inbox me, or hit me up on real ID (violentravi#1826).  Alternatively, if you are old school, please apply via our website:  http://www.adelante-guild.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      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).

      Sindorei Council, a family-friendly and socially active guild has been active since 7/24/2007 (BC drop), currently 7/7 (H)EN, 2/3 (H)ToV, and 5/10 NH.  Seeking DPS (notably ranged) for completion of Heroic and preparation to move on Nighthold.  
      We are not a hardcore progression guild - have never been and don't seek to create that atmosphere.  We are an incredibly welcoming social guild with a core raid component of very skilled players who have enough real-life going on that one night/week (occasionally 2) is what we push for.   We've reached our current raid progression on essentially one night/week. 
      Are you a good fit?  If you enjoy playing your class very well, are reliable to be on at the given time(s), yearn for a fun PG atmosphere in Gchat and Discord with mostly adults, and feel like one (occasionally 2) night per week is ideal for the time you want to put into raiding then we may be a good fit for you.  We help others get better and push people to have fun in guild, raiding or not ( be it through Questing, M+, WQ's, Roics, Pet Battles, etc.). We know our members' backstories and strive to make our guild a family.  Very active FB page and Discord.  
      Schedule:   Current main core raid night is Thursday from 7:30 EST - 10:30 EST (Bloodhoof Server time).  Sunday nights are an alternative night for us.
      Progress:  7/7 (H)EN, 2/3 (H)ToV, 5/10 NH
      Loot:  All Personal - hand down to people who need 
      NEEDS: 
      - Ele Shaman
      - Mage (Fire or Frost)
      - SPriest
      - Boomkin
      - Hunter
      - Arms Warrior w/ Prot offspec (another skilled dps that is comfortable off spec as Tank works well also (Feral/Guardian, WW/BM, etc.)
      Interested?:
      BTAG: Lorienawk#1319 or Mango#1525.  
      Thanks and Happy Hunting!
