Need help with Elemental

Hi everyone, I've been playing elemental since SoO and have been doing fine up until now. My DPS has been kind of low compared to what I think it should be.

---Here is a link to my armory (http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/sargeras/Sarris/simple)

 

---Here is a link to my logs (https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/character/438602/latest#boss=0)

 

---My rotation usually goes something like this: During countdown i use Unleash Flame then drop Searing Totem and prepot then i Flame Shock and pop my trinket EM Ascendance and Fire Elemental. Then I spam Lava Burst and when Ascendance is done i use Earth Shock then LB/EB and renew Flame Shock. After that I continue to spam LB/EB and using Lava Burst whenever i can. 

 

One other quick question. For gearing is is Ilvl>stats or stats>ilvl. Atm i am going Ilvl>stats but not sure if it is the best choice. Thank you for reading and taking the time to look at this and any advice would be great. ^.^

Okay, Serris. I note no real problems with gearing, other than having an abnormally high mastery which will most likely be remedied with time. As far as the question on gearing, it depends. If we're talking about the difference between a normal and a heroic item, the heroic item wins... every time. There is just too much intellect on the heroic item to be ignored. However, we take that heroic item and put it up to a warforged piece... it will boil down to secondaries at that point. 

 

For your opener, why cast an instance of searing totem before the pull just to have to put the fire elemental down a few seconds after? I would have the fire elemental out a second before the pull begins. 

 

My opener: Prepot and Fire Elemental Totem 2-3 seconds before pull, Unleashed Flame 1 second before pull, Elemental Mastery with on-use trinkets, Flame Shock, Lava Burst, Heroism, Ascendance. If you have elemental blast, you can fit that in after the flame shock to buff the next few Lava Bursts during Ascendance. After that, it is just managing your rotation and using your movement CDs correctly. Missing even one Lava Burst or mismanaging movement CDs can cost a TON of DPS. 

 

One fight I can suggest a tip on is probably Butcher. Try using Unleashed Fury instead of Elemental Blast. You'd be surprised how much faster the rotation feels for that fight. You have Spiritwalker's Grace glyphed for a shorter CD which lines up with Bounding Cleave up until he undergoes his soft enrage. You won't need Unleashed Fury for short movement sequences as you aren't moving an incredible amount to begin with (unless you are in charge of moving in and out of a group). 

 

Hopefully, this helps and leaves more answers than questions.

Hiya, thx a ton for the reply I feel liek this really helped me (especially the gearing question because i could not find that anywhere) I get what ur saying with the mastery and i will try harder to get rid of that in favor of another stat. The opener you suggested makes sense and i will definitely try it. Again thank you a ton for reading :)

      Hi,
      I have a question: For the ascendance / gambler build the haste stat is on top of the priority list. Our trinket priority list shows that a static mastery stat increase via a trinket is higher on the priority than a static haste increase.
      How come? 
      Regards, Enqua

      Hello there,

      I am trying to find a character that suits me and 'till now i didn't find it..
      I have a Paladin level 110, a Rogue, DH, Warrior and a Druid. I really enjoyed to play Prot. Paladin but i was overwhelmed with all the knowledge i need to know for raids.I have to say that this is the class that i played the most. I have to say that i usually play in weekends and sometimes in week days.
      I enjoyed playing warrior in PVP but, that was it, nothing else..

      Two days ago i just got my Druid level 110 and played as Feral (with the intention to play Resto or Guard 'cause i want to be a healer and/or a tank but i found the rotations a little off for me..)

      Anyway, my question is, what should i play? I was thinking about a Disc Priest or a Ench/Resto Shaman or a Brew/Mist Monk. I just can't decide what i should play and unfortunately i have to level them from scratch..

      Any advice ?

      I really need a new perspective 'bout what i should play :)

      Thanks!

      Maximum Effort is a new guild on Cenarion circle (A). I was the raid leader for my guild for a long time and we built up a strong raid team. Due to do some dis-agreements between me and the guild leader I was forced to leave. But luckly enough a lot of my team followed me! We're working to build a guild focused around team work and group progression. We love doing mythics, raids, talking and theory crafting about the game!
      We have a very strong-core raid group, capable of clearing heroic and doing some mythic but we're just missing a few people to round it out!
      Raid nights.. Tue/wed 6-830pm server (9:30-11:30 est) Off night Monday 6-830pm server (9-11:30 est)
      Looking for.. -Any and all dps specs
      - Non pally or holy priest healer!
      All raid mats and needs are covered by guild, we run personal look just for the ease of it.
      My btag is Hethrus#1504 if you have questions or wish to try out!

      I have recently started a new Resto Shaman so that I can learn the healing function from the beginning.  My character is only lvl 37 at the moment but am trying to figure out what healing weapons would work for this spec.  
      Because the static group I am in has chosen to forego the use of heirlooms, I am using only a few items to gain the 3 levels I need to catch up with them.  However, when I searched for information on what weapons would be best for this spec at my level, most of the sites I find are talking about the artifact weapons, which doesn't help me.
      Can anyone provide feedback for this topic?   I really would appreciate any pointers.
