Hello Djorkaeff,

checked your logs. here we go

 

Gruul:

- Sunfire uptime 91% -> Keep it up to close 100

- At bosspull you didnt Moonfire after CA, you did 3 Starfires before Moonfire.
00:00:01.260    Djorkæff casts Celestial Alignment
00:00:01.271    Djorkæff casts Void Shards
00:00:01.271    Djorkæff casts Nature's Vigil
00:00:01.676    Djorkæff begins casting Starfire
00:00:02.763    Djorkæff casts Starfire on Gruul
00:00:02.763    Djorkæff begins casting Starfire
00:00:03.904    Djorkæff casts Starfire on Gruul
00:00:03.904    Djorkæff begins casting Starfire
00:00:05.379    Djorkæff casts Starfire on Gruul
00:00:05.379    Djorkæff casts Moonfire on Gruul

 

- Although you know the correct opener, you havent played it. At bosspull you did 4 Starfires but only 2 of them where Empowered. Use Starsurge before you cast the 3rd Starfire

 

- And then you did cast Starsurge twice.

00:00:00.044    Djorkæff begins casting Starsurge
00:00:00.044    Djorkæff casts Starsurge on Gruul

00:00:01.260    Djorkæff casts Celestial Alignment
00:00:01.271    Djorkæff casts Void Shards
00:00:01.271    Djorkæff casts Nature's Vigil
00:00:01.676    Djorkæff begins casting Starfire  <- Empowered Starfire 1
00:00:02.763    Djorkæff casts Starfire on Gruul
00:00:02.763    Djorkæff begins casting Starfire  <- Empowered Starfire 2
00:00:03.904    Djorkæff casts Starfire on Gruul
00:00:03.904    Djorkæff begins casting Starfire  <- No empowered
00:00:05.379    Djorkæff casts Starfire on Gruul
00:00:05.379    Djorkæff casts Moonfire on Gruul
00:00:06.562    Djorkæff begins casting Starfire  <- No empowered
00:00:07.996    Djorkæff casts Starfire on Gruul
00:00:08.424    Djorkæff begins casting Starsurge  <- Starsurge 1
00:00:08.424    Djorkæff casts Starsurge on Gruul

00:00:10.179    Djorkæff begins casting Starsurge  <- 2nd Starsurge
00:00:10.179    Djorkæff casts Starsurge on Gruul

 

- Do not MACRO Inc and CA together. The same reason why you dont do this at Bosspull. INC has a GCD, where you wont be able to cast MF or SS or anything else for 1,5 secounds....Thats a 1,5 secounds loss of CA, your potion and your trinket.

00:03:29.228    Djorkæff casts Draenic Intellect Potion
00:03:29.525    Djorkæff casts Celestial Alignment
00:03:29.525    Djorkæff casts Incarnation: Chosen of Elune
00:03:29.544    Djorkæff casts Void Shards

 

- You did use your 2nd Inc/CA at 03:29 while being in Solar Eclipse. Thats a hugh dps loss. Wait until you reach (or about to reach) Lunar, then activate INC and CA (afterwards) and Nuke target with SS and empowered Starfire

00:03:29.228    Djorkæff casts Draenic Intellect Potion
00:03:29.525    Djorkæff casts Celestial Alignment
00:03:29.525    Djorkæff casts Incarnation: Chosen of Elune

00:03:29.544    Djorkæff casts Void Shards
00:03:29.544    Djorkæff casts Nature's Vigil
00:03:31.042    Djorkæff casts Sunfire on Gruul
00:03:32.159    Djorkæff begins casting Starsurge
00:03:32.159    Djorkæff casts Starsurge on Gruul
00:03:33.282    Djorkæff begins casting Starsurge
00:03:33.282    Djorkæff casts Starsurge on Gruul

00:03:34.366    Djorkæff begins casting Wrath
00:03:35.562    Djorkæff casts Wrath on Gruul
00:03:35.562    Djorkæff begins casting Wrath
00:03:36.729    Djorkæff casts Wrath on Gruul

 

- And as you can see above you did Starsurge again twice. No No!

 

=> In my opinion you have lost atleast around 4-5 k dps(e) in this fight

 

Just some short things about Oregorger:

- Low Dots-uptime. You can keep them also up while he is rolling. Just stay in the center area of the room. He will be in 90% of this phase in Line of sight...

- ...where you can also continue casting Starfires and Wraths to him

- 6:24 killtime but only 2 Incs/CAs. You could have done 3

- your opener here was better then at gruul but still false. After you use Inc you want to use either Starfire or SS...but only once...you did twice..then you used CA-> MF-> SS -> SF

- 2nd use of INC/CA was good. But you forgot to MF him first. (and again, do not use INC/CA as one macro)

 

 

proper macros would be:

CAmacro:

#showtooltip Celestial Alignment
/cast Celestial Alignment
/cast Moonfire
 

ShardofNothing+Berserking+pot+Starfire or Starsurge

/use 14
(/use Berserking)    <- youre not an troll forget that
/use Draenic Intellect Potion
/cast Starfire

/cast Starsurge

 

 

Good Luck and feel free to report back anytime

thank you very very much bonita smile.png

 

another question: in the opener i use CA when i am at the peak of lunar right ? or do i use it right away to get more starfires off ?

No problem, anytime.

You use CA when you enter Lunar (what you are doing when bosspull) and not at Lunar peak.

The reason why not at Lunar peak:
While having CA buff active, your CA grants you Bonus damage (100% Lunar Eclipse) the way as you would have an peak at the moment. So It doesnt mather where at Lunar you hit CA...
BUT ....

After CA buff fades from you, you will still then have a powerful Incarnation based Lunarphase going straight up towards Lunar peak (more DPS). Would you use CA at peak it would be a DPS loss after the CA buff fades, because your Lunar Eclipse gets weaker while moving to Solar

 

EDIT: the same is vaild at your 2nd / 3rd etc use of INC / CA in the middle of the fight

For Maidens I actually dont know it,....yet. Some much discussing about 6.1 changes, but not much logs / number given for a clear answer available yet

 

For me, I will stick to Euphoria tonight for testing purpose.. I wanna see if it is still good enough. Until next week / next ID there will be more data to analyse and then I will choose based on newest data

 

For you, as an "new to Moonkin" player, I would recommend you:
Use where you feel the most comfort with and where you can do a solid state of DPS without having issues in playstyle

 

After checking the 4 best Rankings for Maidens done yesterday by Bunnychaser, Bamba, Newguyit and Ayer I saw that 2 of them where using Solar Flare and the two others had BoP.

 

So I'd say I will use one of both. Probably BoP, just because I am not practiced well enough with an additional Spell to use (Stelar Flare). Need to practise this first at the dummys

Hello Djorkaeff,

So I was testing BOP on Maidens last Thursday night and I must say, I was pretty comfort with it. Although my Overall DPS(e) sucked, cause of being dead for a while and the necessary of a raid damage stop, I felt very OK with my DPS while living and damaging.
Next ID I will test Stelar Flare

Hey Djorkaeff,

 

really nice DPS on Gruul. You got yourself a 90% DPSRanking for your itemlevel-bracket and a total of 80%. really nice.

 

Theres two things i noticed for Gruul what you missed:

- As you already said, you Moonfire uptime was only 89%. dont miss to refresh them

- You forgot your 2nd use of Inc/CA/potion

 

Oregorger you did also very nice. 90% for you itemlevel bracket and total 77%

- SunFire Dotuptime 82%

- but really nice moving in p2 (rolling phase). You had him in range for most of the time being able to continue casting spells onto him

 

At Thogar you still have DPSissus, becuase of

- Dotuptime

- forgotten to use 2nd INC/CA/pot (you should use it when adds arrive with train)

 

At Beastlord you didnt perform well.

Here what you made wrong and what you could do better:

- keep them Dots and Starfall up on the spears at any time

- try to Sunfire the pack beasts when they spawn.

- 6:33 fight but you only used INC/CA twice. Hit it at 3:00 when CD fades (yes I know your guild did TimeWarp at 05:30, which means you wouldnt be able to INC/CA during TimeWarp if you use the at around 03:00. But it is more a DPSloss if you didnt use it 3 times). The day your Guild manages to kill him at heroic below 06:10 fight lenght you can save your INC/CA for Bloodlust/TimeWarp

- Do not waste an SScharge for Solar Empowerment at this Boss. Use if for Starfall only and if you can afford it for Lunar Empowerment only

- Dont INC/CA in Solar (you did at your 2nd INC/CA). Only use them in Lunar Eclpse

- Always reDOT spears with INC/CA up

- try to wait some seconds for Pack Beasts spawn to INC/CA again and DOT them (if possible)

      About Us
      We’re a Mythic raiding guild of close friends looking to meet new people and have fun, all while progressing at a steady pace.
      We offer a competitive raiding atmosphere on a very minimal schedule.  Raiding only 9 hours a week and being competitive is a tough task, so we want people who are not only reliable, but know how to make the most of a short period of time.
      Past progression included pre-patch kill of Mu’ru, Kil’jaeden, Yogg-Saron (0 Light), Algalon, Anub-arak, Lich King, Cho’gall, Sinestra, Deathwing, Lei Shen, Ra-den, and Garrosh.
       
       
      Raid Times
      Tuesday-Thursday 10PM-1AM CST (server time) or 8-11PM PST. 
      Only NINE hours a week!!!
       
       
      Progression
      Emerald Nightmare (7/7 Mythic)
      Trial of Valor (3/3 Heroic)
      Nighthold (3/10 Mythic, 10/10 Heroic)
       
       
      Recruitment Needs
      Healer
      --Druid
      Melee DPS
      --any competitive, high DPS
      Ranged DPS
      --any competitive, high DPS
       
       
      **All quality players regardless of class will ALWAYS be considered**
       
       
      What We’re Looking For
      -Be reliable – show up to raids on time on a consistent basis.
      -Understand your class- knowing when to swap to a different talent for a specific fight can often push a raid group over the top. Knowing when to play fire instead of arcane, or survival instead of marks is also a very important quality.  This included all hybrid classes that have damage and healing specs.
      -Experience, skill and gear – We are looking for people wo want to progress seriously and have a capability to play your class to a high level. We expect applicants to have combat logs to prove this as well.
      -Attitude – We have a fairly laid back raid atmosphere, but you must be willing to accept criticism.  If you are told you are messing up repeatedly, it is nothing personal, but we may sit you for the fight to get a kill.
      -Outside raid participation – Artifact power and legendries are two systems put in place in Legion that have an impact on raiding.  We are looking for raiders that perform their own player progression outside of raids (mythic+, artifact power farming, etc.) We do not require our raiders to be at 54 traits, but each raider must actively pursue this goal. 
      -Having an alt is a bonus, but by no means required.
       
       
      What We Offer
      -A competitive raid environment
      -A stable guild that has existed for many years
      -Other friendly players with multiple classes to socialize and play with
       
       
      Contact Info
      If any of this interests you at all, please feel free to contact us in game or on our website.
      We DO NOT do formal applications. After an interview on Discord, we will set you up with a try out during our farm run.  In the end, it’s your play that should decide whether you get into the guild or not.

      Hey,
      I used to be proud of my parses, doing 85-90%+ parses at ilvl 878 or so. Since then I've geared up and feel like my stats are in the right place (though mastery could be a bit higher). Now I'm parsing at 52-65% even though I don't think I'm doing anything majorly different with my rotation, and I even have the 2pc t19...

      I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, please take a look if you have some time.

      Warcraft logs (star augus). I'm "Monkeygin":

      Hey to all my warlock-collegues,
      i´m playing aff since vanilla now and it is still my prefered spec (maybe try once Demo to see how it flows) but im always trying to improve my performance.
      I´m not aiming a "orange performance" at Warcraftlogs but purple oder upper blue shold be targeted. SO i just ask here to get some tip where i can improve my performance, cause many eyes and brains work better than just a single one and just using SimCraft is not the best way i think-
      So feel free to get some informations what you think about could work (talents, rotation, gear/stats etc pp).
      Following my armory an some logs of our "Twink&Community-Starter Raid" where we are mostly using Twinks and carrying non-riders out of the Community to show them every raid that is available. Normaly i´m raiding NH HC 9/10.
      Armory Link - Laneana
      Warcraftogs - Twink&Carry nhc
      Thanks for any support.
