[Fire] DPS Help

2 posts in this topic

Hello everyone,

 

A friend of mine recently switched over to fire and they are not doing well. They are following the guide posted on this site but their DPS is way under what it should be.

 

Armory Link: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/blackrock/Saleria/simple

 

Log Link: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/character/976415/7/

 

Rotation: The rotation described here - http://www.icy-veins.com/wow/fire-mage-pve-dps-rotation-cooldowns-abilities

 

They did an LFR Highmaul today and only pulled about 21k DPS despite having a 674 ilvl. Any help or advice you can give would be very much appreciated!

I'm certainly no fire mage god, but a few things bug me off the bat.

They missed 1~2 meteor casts during the fight. It has half the cooldown of glyphed combustion, so feel free to toss it out when it comes off cd and combustion still has 40+ seconds to go.

Rune of power only had a 66% uptime, which needs to be much higher, especially with a relatively low movement fight like Gruul. Spreading two wide runes of power over the stack point should help this.

Living bomb is definitely not good for single target, should be on blast wave or even unstable magic if they're not fully comfortable with the rotation yet. 

 

Ice floes was only used three times, in one big burst, yet there are 25 instances of scorch cast through the fight. Stocking a charge of blast wave can help carry you through periods of light movement if ice floes and the various instants at fire's disposal aren't enough.

Crit feels kind of low for that gear level, definitely need more crit in there. Sometimes RNGesus isn't very kind, and crit really helps fix that.

We are 10 /10 Heroic Nighthold (10/10 N NH in about 1 1/2 hours) (Providing we arent cutting up and getting yelled at.... by a certain mage in our guild.... who cuts up too.... and won't admit it..... and puts down fake portals.... every week..... and people still take them.... to their death..... really......week..... after week.... to their death...... seriously)
      As always we are recruiting raiders and non raiders.
      *****GIRLS***** We have a large number of female gamers who do not have to worry about harrasment of any kind...we just will not tolerate this... and our group is like family. Come see for yourself!
      Tired of the ridiculous harassment from the opposite sex? You will be safe with us! Mature gamers who do not condone this behaviour!
      Our raid schedule is Tuesday/Thursday/Sunday 6:30pm to 9:00pm server time(pst)
      We currently have an "Alt" raid for alts and non-progression raiders on Mondays at the same time! MEGA amounts of fun there, alot of us use our mains to carry this raid and help gear these raiders up!
      Other guild events include: Herb Drives, Fishing Expo, Mog off! (Best transmog wins), Old Raids for Transmog gear & Mythic Plus runs. We do random guild events with prizes up to and including a FREE MONTH OF WOW! (Mog-Off is going on NOW!!)
      We have quite a bit of fun when we get together, as we always have over the years! Come join us and get corrupted (Disclaimer: Infections have been found to be the leading cause of corruption in many raiders) We've always been here and will continue to be here! Of course you will be required to sacrifice a goat or an alliance player once a week to the Horde gods..... You will also be required to laugh and have fun as well! We do have fun!
      So.......COME.......GET.......CORRUPTED!

      Hello friends.
      I want to ask you an advice about sub and assasin dps and rotation.
      I read more guides,watched logs and still don't understand why I have bad dps.
      For example there are 2 logs from Goroth
      Heroic Sub: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/f2nmNPGFtX8wk3vA#fight=1&type=summary&source=41
      And 
      Mythic Assassin:https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/tvnx1Z2BaQGYjF7f#type=summary&source=16&view=analytical&fight=5
      Can anyone tell me my mistakes?
      Thank you

      Hi all,
      I've recently come back to my Warrior and have gone the Fury route. Over the last couple of weeks I've managed to scrape together some gear and AP to where I can raid again.
      I think I've got the basics down but my DPS seems quite rubbish :( Is someone able to give me some pointers to work on please? I've only just gotten my 2PC last night so this may help somewhat, unfortunately I don't have a CoF and not sure I'll get one given everyone is focusing on ToS now.
      Armory is here: https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/khazgoroth/euthenize
      Logs: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/h4gzjHAvK7PfxWcr
      Starting to learn the fights better now, but one thing that immediately jumped out at me is my terrible enrage uptime? Is this the source of my woes?

      Hello,
      I'm reaching out in hopes of identifying flaws/gaps in my Havoc play style that may be resulting in lower than expected DPS in ToS. Please see armory and log links below. I do my best to adhere to the Icy-Veins provided rotation, and my opening burst seems to be more than adequate for most pulls but the drop off is significant. I'm wondering if my movement is just too over the top/paying too much attention to mechanics or if it's more 'what I'm pressing when". I will also note I made the switch to DH about a month ago so it's still fairly fresh for me.
      Some points I'll make in advance:
      - I'm unsure if I should be holding my 2nd Chaos Blades & Nemesis until my 2nd Meta is available (seems like a waste)
      - I have no 2nd DPS legendary options at this time.
      - I'm considering obliterating the darkmoon card up to replace my 930 trinket.
      - I do need to get more consistent with pre-pot and follow-up pot (is Old War still best pot?)

      Logs: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/character/25042042/13/
       
      Any assistance provided is most appreciated. I believe my DPS is low for all bosses given my current gear so I'm concerned across the board.
       
      Update 7/11: I swapped out the 930 versatility/AOE trinket I had on for my available logs with an Agi/Crit world quest 890 trinket and switched from Old War to Prolonged power for some H Kil'Jaeden pulls and my DPS seemed a bit more competitive. Still looking for advice!
