So it is becoming painfully obvious that I am not pulling near what i should be. I just did two logs and am going through them to see where im going wrong and cant really see what the problem is. Wouldn't mind some people with a better eye for it taking a look. All I know is my DPS is low.

 

Logs:

Thanks for any help. Im just having trouble finding where I'm going wrong in  the logs or what to look for.

 

*Note* Skada and Recount both had me at 23.8k for the butcher fight not sure which to trust the logs or addons.

First off, Log Comparison between you and me

You had 10 casts of BA vs my 11, with the 12th possible having just come off cd 1s before you killed him. 

4/5 casts of AMoC.

Delaying Coin for so long cost you a 3rd use.

Looking at total number of casts, I had 215 vs your 156 in the same amount of time.  With more uses of FS than you had.

0 casts of ES from 3:00 to 3:19, actually, it looks like you didn't do anything in this time period, and neither were you dead, so....

You focus capped quite a number of times, with a total of 124 wasted focus from FS.

You also didn't have a pet out.... EDIT: Looks like WCL hasn't merged the pets with their respective owners yet, this might take awhile and it does happen quite a bit it seems.  You'd gain ~2500 from this, but it still doesn't put you close to what you should be doing.

Okay, first at all: Both of you guys are doing something terrible wrong: Not using Barrage nor GT. That's a DPS loss of around 2-3k. (Even if sims say so. Try it out.)

 

Besides from fucking up your priority list quite often, the only other big thing I can find: You're firing your ES too early. You've had 54 casts, which would end up in 162 ticks and you only had 133. Always time your ES so it doesn't overwrite the old DoT. (Don't mind this, I was wrong.)

 

Comparison if you want to check out how I'm playing (we're about the same gear level)

Hi there, thanks for your analysis. Looking at the comparison has left me puzzled at how in the heck im short so many casts. The over focusing, missing out on my third coin etc are things I can pay better attention to and fix. What im left thinking though is how the heck Im leaving myself so many casts short.

Whilst they have less ticks, you'll notice that their ticks will do more damage.

 

ES clipping was changed since mop and whilst the rebuff refreshes, the old damage will simply carry over instead of being overwritten.

 

Barrage is also a minor DPS gain on single target, definitely not the 14% you put it to be for them, or 10% for you.

You are quite very wrong here. On a single target fight, barrage and GT are about 50-60 dps gains over not using your lvl 90 talent. This has been proven in simc a bazillion times, and if you look around, you'll find the posts regarding this. As for Explosive Shot, it has been a dps gain to spam it during LnL procs since the leftover damage is added into the dot when it is refreshed.

You're right! Haven't played MoP, so I thought ES would be the same as in Cataclysm. Good thing to know, tho. (I already found it out myself, wasn't able to edit it in time, cuz the post had to be approved and I went to sleep.)

 

Sims are another thing. They are sims, nothing else. I don't know why, but I've tested a few fights now with and without Barrage and I always tend to do around 1-3k more DPS overall. Single target only of course.

The sims might be "just sims", however, they do model real situations.  The fact that the sims do things perfectly and still only gets an increase of ~50 dps for FS SV says that in the game, the gain of using GT/Barrage would be even less.  If you are seeing a 1-3k dps increase by  using them, you are doing something wrong and I would be glad to go over your logs.

I'll upload some raid logs, but I don't think that will be before next friday. I don't want to take LFR logs or something. I know I'm doing some stuff wrong. Some focus capping, sometimes fucking op the prio list a bit and missing 2-3 seconds on a CD. For myself Barrage is working very fluidly into my rotation/prio list.

 

The fact that I'm beating my SimDPS quite a bit on Patchwerk bosses (Butcher) leaves me pretty confident that I'm at least doing something right. I'm still always open to try stuff to improve even more. Thanks for your help.

Actually they are barely worth using, which is why there are being buffed.

You are beating the sim'd numbers, because the sim is your average over like a 7 minute fight.  Butcher gets raped in about 3 minutes, which drastically increases the %uptime of Bloodlust, Coin, Potions, etc...

 

Sim your character with a 3 minute fight, and the sim will increase the output by about 3k..

Another butcher log from tonight :

 

https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/A9vFa2HWf41QMGKr/#type=damage-done

 

Same old story with the lack of casts, I'm not really understanding whats going. 150ish casts again, I switched to LoneWolf for the fight just for the hell of it. Seeing the casts difference looks like I'm almost sitting there doing nothing. How high of an MS would really effect your dps? I'm running at about 100ms atm. Kinda reaching for what could be going on. The uptimes on ES,BA are a matter of me paying attention more but the casts are just something where I have no clue whats going on.

      We currently raid on Tuesdays and Thursdays 19:00- 21:15 CDT. We understand that no one has an unlimited amount of time to play. We raid with a fun, casual, yet goal oriented focus to finish heroic in current content.
      Interested? Drop us a line!
      Deputy Raid Leader: Duerdon#1111
      Director: Saffy#1122
      -or-

      Thanks for your consideration - happy raiding!

      This is similiar to Secret Hunter with the addition of Kathrena package and Rexxar DK, it has both good early game and great late game with huge damage from charges and DK hero power.
      It has only 3 legendaries that are necessary to make the deck works and not exchangable with anything else.
      1x Candleshot
      2x Secretkeeper
      2x Wandering Monster
      2x Freezing Trap
      2x Cat Trick
      2x Eaglehorn Bow
      2x Animal Companion
      2x Kill Command
      1x Unleash the Hounds
      2x Deadly Shot
      2x Flanking Strike
      2x Spellbreaker
      2x Lesser Emerald Spellstone
      1x Seeping Oozeling
      1x Deathstalker Rexxar
      2x Charged Devilsaur
      1x Kathrena Winterwisp
      1x King Krush
       
      As you can see the only beasts in the deck are 7/7 or 8/8 with charge so the result of recruit is easy to predict, note that Charged Devilsaur when summoned by recruit can hit face directly since not activate the battlecry.
      The aim of the deck is either win with Wolves from spellstone and early beast summons or charging face with big dinos so stall enough until you can do so if your early game is worse than opponent. 
      Seeping oozeling will always copy Kathrena deathrattle unless you have her in your hand so don't keep Kathrena at 1st turn but keeping Oozeling is fine since it will swing the game if not silenced when played at turn 6.
      The deck is pretty solid and that's what I'm playing mostly in K&C.

      Hay,
       
      I seem to struggle to get better DPS. I figured out that i used chaos strike and blade dance to less. and i should use less Throw glaive and fellrush. 
      But i stil seem to have trouble getting my dps on.  Please take a look on the logs at the 14th. 
      I really dislike using the "eye beam build" (it feel slow to me) so i still use the 2221311 build.
