Need help with Lock DPS!

Recommended Posts

Ahoy hoy~!
I'm a co-raid lead and an officer over in my guild and we have a few of our dps lagging behind everyone else, I am hoping someone can look over the logs and tell me what the Amethystias is missing in her rotation.
Also, is it still worthwhile to be Destro or is it Demo all the way?

Hey DemondNight, I'm fairly new as a lock and was actually thinking about posting one of these using my own data to see if anyone could spot areas for improvement. I took a look and from what I can see Amethystias is missing a few easy things to boost DPS a bit. 

 

  • No potions used, should be pre-potting 1-3 sec before pull and then potting again during hero phase
  • Doesn't look like enough uses of Dark Soul to me. I always use it right away in my opener so I have the chance to use more in the fight.  She only used twice and she has the glyph (at last as of right now) to cut the cooldown in half on it, should have been able to use it at least 2x more in this fight.
  • Talent: For Kargath I would use Archimond's Darkness instead of KC since there is little movement. This would give an extra Dark Soul use.
  • I was going to say something about her using SoulBurn instead of more Chaos Bolts near the end of the fight but in researching it SB is the preferred spell. I'd maybe try getting more of those in and using Dark Soul to up the crit chance on those, they hit harder than CBs when they crit. 
  • Talent: Not DPS related but more around survivability, I prefer Sacrificial Pact over Soul Link, gives a nice shield when needed.

I'll go on a bit harder than @Secretsauce. His points are absolutely right, though I got something to tell.

Dark Soul usage makes absolutely no sense. Not only he is messing his burn phases, but he simply doesn't use DS enough, overcapping the CD and losing his best damage cooldown to nothing.

Having no grasp on this simple basic gameplay feature, I'm in no surprise about Havoc and Shadowburn usages.
Twins fight - he used z-e-r-o Havoc on fight with 2 targets being absolutely constant. Absolutely the same story for Tectus. Bunch of targets = zero Havoc.
Brackenspore fight also logged as having zero Havoc and only one Shadowburn - it a fight with ridiculous possibilities of capitalising on those spells.

Talent choice frorm armoury has recorded Glyph of Havoc, which makes little sense in Highmaul, and Dark Soul glyph, which is debatably weak for Destro. I'd recommend getting rid of those two.

In addition to the points raised by Secretsauce and Paracel above, I'd also like to add the following:

 

Immolate uptimes should be 95% or better. Here were the Immolate uptimes for Amethystias:

Kargath Bladefist: 69.22%
Butcher: 81.89%
Brackenspore: 43.94%
Tectus: 41.37%
Twins: 34.18%
Ko'ragh: 52.66%
 
If she's not tracking her immolate properly, she should definitely get a Weakaura to help track that. See the Weakauras thread which is stickied in the Warlock forum.

      I'm new to using icy-veins, and I cannot seem to get used to navigating the WoW class guides. Why is stat info the 13th section of the guides, but max level content 6th through 12th? Where do I find comparisons between specs?

      Guild: Dawn of the Dead | http://www.dotd.org   Faction: Horde | Server: Zul'jin (PvE) | Timezone: EST   Current Progression: 8/9M BoD | 2/2H CoS | 8/8M Uldir CE   We've been raiding max size raids continuously since WoW has been released and are the only guild to have done so here on Zul'jin. We have strong leadership, no drama, and plans to keep raiding for years to come. Unlike many guilds, we're not recruiting for the short term, and we don't over-recruit.   Website: www.dotd.org
        Raid Times: Our schedule is 8-11 EST Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.   Needs: We are a small guild, and we expect high attendance. As such, we recruit people to raid, and desire people who can step in and contribute immediately. We don’t recruit people to sit around, so all spots are for raiders who can expect to be in most every raid.   We are currently looking to add skilled and reliable:
      Ranged DPS: High: Shadow Priest, Mage Medium: Warlock 1 Healer:
      High: Resto Shaman, Mistweaver Monk
       
      *ALL exceptional applicants will be considered regardless of the class.   What we ask of you:   Effort: Not all applicants come from highly progressed guilds, and that’s okay, but it does mean that you need to be prepared. We recruit the player, not the gear, but we do ask that you have some current experience. You need to have the best gear available to you with top end enchants and gems where available. You also need to be able to display an understanding of your class mechanics, role in a raid, and ability to learn new fights.   Attitude: It’s a game. We play for fun. How you fit in with the guild is taken very seriously. We’re a bunch of mostly 18-30 guys and girls who have fun playing together. While we have a good time, we also know when it’s time to buckle down and work hard.   Skill: The best way to determine skill is to see you in a raid. Because we don’t wish to have anyone transfer that we’re not serious about, be able to express your knowledge of your class and why you’re an exceptional player who would be an asset and is worth a shot. Gear will come with time. Skill will not. Impress us with your knowledge of your class and gameplay mechanics. Feel free to share any logs, theorycrafting, or other work you've done.   Commitment: We make a commitment to you, and ask you to do the same to us. A raid takes a team of more than 20 individuals working together. We rely on you to show up to raids, research your class and new fights, respect your fellow players, and notify us when you are unavailable. You rely on us for gear, experience, and coordination. It's a large investment of our time to train and gear new players, and we ask the same investment on your part so that we can each benefit.   We have a variety of informational resources available to prospective applicants on our web site: http://www.dotd.org-- please refer to our "Applications" forum for detailed information. Also feel free to visit us on WoWProgresss for more information and kill videos! http://www.wowprogress.com/guild/us/...wn+of+the+Dead   Should you wish to speak to someone in-game, please don't hesitate to reach out to an officer directly, whisper Alloren (Alloren#1606), Xanah (Xana#1662) or Jeare (Jeare#1759).   We look forward to hearing from you soon!
