Only 50k dps in raid

7 posts in this topic

Hello every one,

if i'm in a raid i only do 50k dps max as a fire mage.

so my question is what do i do rong because i see other mage's (arcane, fire or frost) get way better dps.

My talents:

Presence of Mind

Ice Barrier

Ring of Frost

Greater Invisibility

Living Bomb


My glyphs:

fire blast

Do you have any logs on world of logs that we could see? It would really help to see what you are doing right and what you are doing wrong.

If WoW Heroes is correct then I assume you're talking about LFR.

First thing to do would be to pay a visit to Mr Robot and hit the optimise button.

As for competing against other mages, is their gear comparable to yours? Are they flasking/eating food? Not that it's needed in LFR but would help their dps to be higher if you are not doing the same.

That said, at your gear level you should be doing more than 50k on most of the fights in Mogu'shan Vaults. Pre-casting is important, i.e. start casting that next fireball before the current one has completed, make full use of Heating up (ensuring you have Living Bomb up), Pyro! procs and don't forget about Alter time. If you're moving about a lot then maybe drop Presence of Mind for Scorch so you can always be casting.

As a fire mage, you should be speccing into crit rating straight after you've reached the hit cap. I see that you're .58% over the hit rating cap, which is a bit much. Download reforgelite, or use Mr Robot as stated above, and ensure that you're as little over the cap as possible.

While many will state otherwise, I personally find invocation to be a burden, and I find Rune of Power/Incanter's Ward very useful for certain fights (eg Rune of Power on Feng, as not much mobility is needed, and Incanter's Ward on Stoneguard, as damage is rather predictable on the fight). Invocation can make mana management a pain for novice users. As stated above, you should be interchanging your talents for specific fights, as this can mean a lot.

Ensure that you're constantly on top of your rotation, pre-casting spells, and ensuring that you don't miss out on a global cooldown. A world of logs will be very helpful to see what you're doing here, as >50k is standard on most raid encounters at the moment. :)

We have done the top 100 thing in past expansions. We don't call it quits when content gets rough, we review our strat, adjust as needed and get back to it. With that being said, we want to make progress but we are more concerned with just enjoying the game and each other's company.
      We are not interested in the elitists and nobody likes a know it all, just have a positive attitude. We work to build an environment and community that players want to log into everyday and enjoy. Doing so helps prevent burnout so we can enjoy endgame content without all the stress most Mythic raid environments endure.

      **  DISCORD
      OUR GOAL:
      Our goal is to create/maintain a cohesive, tight-knight, long-term family oriented raid team(s) where everyone has fun. In order to accomplish this, each member must understand that they, as an individual, are a part of the team, and are responsible to the whole group to bring their A game every raid night.

      Experienced Raiders - Many of our players have played since Vanilla/BC and are retired hardcore players who just want to have fun while raiding casually
      Friendly community - We help our guildies whenever possible so as to help with progression. This is to include running mythic+, alt runs, advice on rotations or with enchants/gems.
      Class Knowledge - We are a raid full of competent players that know their class and push themselves to the best of their ability and expect for you to do the same
      We come prepared! Flasks, food, etc.
      Achievement Junkies! We do weekly achieve runs!

      Class Knowledge - We are seeking raiders who know their class' capabilities and limits and seek to push these limits
      Prepared - Someone who is always prepared for a raid (flasks, food, etc)
      Situational awareness - We do not want to have to call out every ability that every boss does every time they cast it.
      Personality - Long story short, if you’re a prissy drama queen who complains about everything (or anything in this case) you will find your time here very short lived. We do not tolerate ragers, beggars or scammers.
      Intellect - You need to be smart, we’re not asking you to calculate the entropy of a black hole, however, we don’t want to have to explain things more than once because it takes away from valuable raid encounters
      Attendance - We require 90% attendance. We understand that things come up in real life and you won’t be able to attend every raid, and we accept that, but if you miss raids because you just can’t commit to our schedule, there are better guilds for you.
      Team Effort - We expect our raiders to be team players who help each other, respect each other, take on challenges and roles suited for their class, and work together towards our raids success

      Humor - Whether in guild chat/vent, there is always something to laugh about
      Understanding - Most of our guild is either in college or working adults with families. We understand real life schedules and family situations. Real Life > Wow.
      Honesty - We will always be up front and to the point from day one. You will receive mature and constructive criticism from our Officers if we believe it will help you to perform better

      Hi everyone! This is my first time playing endgame content, thanks to some veteran friends who invited me to play with them. I started with a Fury Warrior, and now that I feel comfortable, I started logging the runs. 

      Here is a part of Antorus Normal ( I accidentaly deleted the file later which included the rest of the bosses :( ) 

      Would anyone please take a look at it to see where I have room for improvement (probably everything) and how can I tackle those issues?

      PD: Im lacking one of the BiS leggos, and ever since I have the Convergance of Fates trinket, I lost my rotation, cant seem to find when to fire each ability now.
