Help with my Destro DPS

I just switched to Destro in 6.2 and I'm having issues with my DPS especially on Iron Reaver.  I've read many destro lock guides but it seems like I'm missing just 1 or 3 things.  Any advise would be greatly appreciated thank you.  My logs are located below.

HI Motiv,


A few minor issues in your logs:


Immolate uptime. Perhaps you had to move a lot/boss was out of range but your DoT fell off several times during the ground phases.


Generally quite a few missed casts (aka you were not casting anything) during the ground phase. Are you banking Conflags for movement? At one point (which I assume was the air phase) you did not cast a damaging spell for 26 seconds.


As a result damage on bombs very very low. Havoc and SB usage low. This can be a bad luck thing if you are never near spawn points but did you seek them out? (Running through fire is possible though probably should not let my healers see me do that!).


Resource wise you tend to stay too high as you still have the T17 2 set. You don't want to miss out on free embers.


Overall number of CBs during DS too low. It seemed you had to move once or even twice but do you think that you could have timed better? 


During procs I'd advise to dump more/all embers (assuming you are not going to DS very soon).


Do you feel you really need Unending Resolve? A constant 10% reduction would save more of the healers' mana. Do you really feel that you need Dark Bargain? Could you use your teleport and/or gateways for something?


Hope this helped and good luck.

Spikey, I appreciate the feed back. However, I realized there was another lock in the group. My locks name is Pingesee. I just wanted to make sure you looked at the right one because you mentioned the 2 piece when I had the 4.

I am pretty sure he was looking at you. The other lock was affliction and has none of the spells that Spikey pointed out.

Yeah it was Pingesee that I was looking at and if you haven't realised yet I was looking at your Iron Reaver log smile.png


I only said 2 set as I saw from the logs that you have it still and that is what gives you the free embers. The 4 set doesn't matter in this instance.


As to multi-target fights your possible DPS partly depends on your raid group for example how many people are stealing your executes and if the tanks stack nicely. So again "Always be Casting", watch DoT uptimes and minimise movement by using your tools. Then on top learn to maximise Havoc use, more CBs! (especially F&B ones as appropriate), snipe SB kills with a mouseover and it will be even faster paced so watch your resources carefully.


Oh and edited to add during progress priority target damage>overall damage,

      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.

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which semi-recently transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some shit.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are in need of any competent DPS, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.

      Raiders must come prepared, on time, with flasks, pots, food, and runes. 
      Raiders must know their class and role. 
      Potential raiders must have been gearing for the content.
      Drama Queens and Trolls need not apply.

      Our raid schedule is:
      Tuesday - Thursday
