Hi, all!

First time posting but you all have been my ultimate resource for everything i needed to know about my class and so on ^^

I need a little (big) cricism/help about my buildup, gear and dps while preparing for mythic runs:

Here is the link to my armory:

http://eu.battle.net/wow/it/character/nemesis/Altheia/advanced

And you can find my logs on askmrrobot (i guess, because my guild doesn't upload logs on worldoflogs).

We're 7/7 nm and 6/7 hc and yesterday we got Imperator to 20% health before wiping.

When i'm dps i can get to 23-something dps, depending on movement, but i'm not dpsing all the run through, because i have to switch healing where more heals are required (yesterday i just switched for imperator, but it's not said, it depends).

I use CoP, Insanity (Dotweaving rotation) and i've followed Ask Mr Robot's suggested stats priority, gems and enchants. (Mastery,Mastery,Mastery)

So...very little bit of help will be very very very appreciated, i really want to make the best out of my SPriest and i wanna show that we're not only made to be healers 

Thanks a lot!

Yo. 

 

The armory looks good.  I can't read spanish, but I think that "maestra" means mastery, which is a decent stat for Highmaul.  Talents look good, and glyphs are good. 

 

If you can link us some logs I'd be happy to look over them for you!

Mastery drops away below most other secondary stats during movement fights. If your guild can breeze past low movement dps checks like Butcher but is struggling with high movement then you might be better off enchanting/gemming into a high movement stat. I'm in the same situation as you that I switch between shadow and holy at times so I've gone full multistrike as obviously it's the top holy stat, but also for shadow it's value in stationary fights is pretty good and it is far superior to mastery when moving.

Hi and thanks for replying! ^^

Maestria it's the italian name for Mastery and i'm sorry that my armory has been linked in italian, as i was pretty sure to have switched it to english (besides i play with english client, i hate italian translations lol)

You can find my logs on AskMrRobot, as my guild doesn't upload them on Worloflogs <3

It's the exact issue i'm having: i'm perfect away on Butcher, getting on to 24k but as the fights involve movements, things come bad, at least for me (yay, i'm the only Spriest in my gulld T_T) it'll be ok for me to re-enchant and re-gem everything, and it's gonna be pretty costless as i've got both profession for that, in which stats do you suggest me to re-enchant and re-gem?

Do you think that it's gonna be a good move looking forward to BRF? I mean, as far i can see it's gonna be another high movement fights raid, so...( u.u because yeah, we casters just needed some more movement. yeah.). Multistrike sounds appealing, though...

I go with multistrike while I'm in highmaul, though I know some use Haste. 

 

[...] You can find my logs on AskMrRobot [...]

Another thing that could help. If I know i'll have to move i use my instants for that. So if you know you'll have to move in the next time you could try to get 3 shadow orbs just 3 secons or so before, then cast Plague and channel mindflay if you time it well enough so you have to move just after you finished channeling mindflay you have buffed ms form your glyph as well as a mindblast off cd which you can cast while running.

Also nice other way around: you have to move with 2 shadow orbs > cast mindblast > cast plague and in most fights you can stand still after that 2 spells. Also you might want to not directly come back into camp, but just wait till the next mindblast is off cd so you can use its gcd to move.

      It's a few months later (what with delays and distractions and getting old and all that), but I just wanted to start by saying THANK YOU to those who helped me with amazing advice on levelling my fire mage alt. It made all the difference - you guys rock.
      I finally dinged 110 the other day and went into a few instances and raid finders with her. As a caster noob - I main a feral - there are a few things I've noticed and am unsure about.
      The guide here on Icy Veins recommends Dragon's Breath for AoE of 3+ grouped mobs. I may have overlooked something, but I can't for the life of me find anything on the *range* of Dragon's breath. The animation makes me think I need to stand right in front of the mobs to hit them, but that can't be right, I'm supposed to be ranged and standing a good bit away - aren't I?  During levelling, I've gotten used to casting Living Bomb regardless of how many mobs I'm facing. The guide has it exclusively as an AoE ability. Is that true, or is it worth casting on a single target (boss)? Does meteor "work" on huge bosses who are standing behind a ledge/cliff, in the manner of Engine of Souls (Desolate Host) or Garothi Worldbreaker? I try placing it as close to the edge of the "cliff" as possible, does that mean it'll hit the boss?

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting range DPS & Tank. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 7/11 Mythic Antorus. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:15 PM until 12:15 AM Eastern. Currently, our main goal is to push Mythic progression & finish out the raid before next patch, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us, because we will not be doing Heroic or anything like that.
      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.
      As far as classes are concerned, at this time, we do not have ANY rogues, DPS warriors, havoc DH, or wind walkers.
      If you are interested, add me to battle tag and we will talk (violentravi#1826), I will accept mostly anyone who wants to be a bench or casual, but for raiding purposes, you must be able to provide logs.  If you cannot get ahold of me in game, I work nights, please shoot me an email, I check it at work often and I can get ahold of other officers via text/discord if it's urgent! violentnacho@gmail.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.
