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,

      This is certainly not a new topic on this forum.  I've tried to read most all postings on Ret Pally's and dps and comments. I am following the rotation I found here on Icy Veins and have put the rotations on Key bindings. I was in a bg today and someone whispered to me "hey guy, you need to put your rotation on key bindings, you suck."  I'm a woman,   My kill in bg is good, up with everyone else's but I always have the lowest dps.  I thought about just quitting this toon and bring up one of the 3 100's I have but I feel like if I quit I will lose out on playing skills that I need and will never learn to play as well as I could.  Besides, I don't like to just quit.  Thank you for any help and/or advice you can give me. 
      I am at 48 on my artifact weapon, I'm 110 Ret Pally on Kargath.  Fionoria is my toon's name.   Below is a link to my character and all stats, please have a look.
      ADDING BG Stats for tonight: 2 killing blow, 5 deaths, 185 honor kills, dps; 18707, healing 40,000,
      Please give advice, I would really appreciate your help.  Thank you.

      <Cryogenic> - 3/9M - Recruiting all RDPS classes for an immediate raid spot to round out our 20m roster. Tues/Weds 7-11 SERVER. Discord/Flask/Food provided for raiders. 925++. Pst for more info!!!

      The guild was founded by a group of friends with a mission, to progress through mythic raids without the toxic environment. The guild was formed halfway through EN and despite the late start we built a solid core of raiders and down 5/7M EN before the Nighthold was released. We ended up having to break up as soon as we cleared heroic Nighthold, but we are back with a vengance here on Stormrage now. 

      CURRENT PROGRESSION:
      Emerald Nightmare -- 5/7M
      Trial of Valor -- 3/3H
      Nighthold -- 10/10H 5/10M (Guild break after Gul'dan kill)
      Tomb of Sargeras -- 9/9N 9/9H 3/9M

      LOOKING FOR:
      We are currently looking for people that can commit to all raid days, who will show up prepared and not waste our time or their own time. We understand that real life happens, but we do ask that our raiders maintain at least 90% attendance and that can make sure they can raid without interruption. We don't have any strict attendance policies/punishments, however it is important for us to keep our progression as strong as possible, which relies heavily on raid wide attendance. 

      RAID TIMES:
      Tuesdays: 7-11 Server (EST) Mythic/Progression
      Wednesdays: 7-11 Server (EST) Mythic/Progression
      Thursday 8-11 Server (EST) Optional Heroic/Normal

      We also often run old content (M EN/ToV/Nightbane/Nighthold) as well as constant M+ groups throughout the day. These runs are 100% optional.

      RECRUITMENT:
      We are currently looking for all exceptional players to rebuild our raid team. We don't care about item level or prior experience. We want quality players to learn, grow, and progress with. We currently have a very strong core of raiders, but with attendance issues and people quitting wow, we are strongly shifting our focus on finding players that excel at their class/spec to round out the last few spots in our main roster. 

      CURRENT NEED:
      ALL DPS CLASSES - (ranged more so than melee)
      ALL EXCEPTIONAL PLAYERS

      EXPECTATIONS:
      We expect all raiders to come to raids prepared. This means: 
      - Having the correct gems/enchants (200 gems)
      - Class knowledge
      - Raid preparation. 
      We only raid 8 hours a week, so it is imperative that we don't waste time.All underpreforming players, regardless of rank and class, will be benched until performance can be brought up to par for the current content. We are not interested in carrying anyone, and if you cannot perform raid mechanics, then we are not the guild for you. Cauldrons and food will be provided by the guild bank when available. Everyone in the guild is taken care of, and this is done primarily through donation by our members. Our guild is a small community and we all pitch in to get things done.

      LOOT SYSTEM:
      As a guild we opt to run loot through a loot council that is run by the officers. Loot is distributed in a way that most benefits the raid team in terms of progression. Distributing loot factors are performance/attendance/role/rank (I.E. Trials are typically lower on loot priority. (Higher rank than takes priority over trial) Loot is always dished out in a way that is most beneficial to the guild is a whole, and is a completely transparent process to avoid drama. We use the add-on RClootcouncil for ease of distribution.

      PRIMARY CONTACT:
      Recruitment Officer - Riotzin (FrostyDog#155103)

      OTHER CONTACTS:
      Guild Master/Raid Leader - Dêv (CrispyD#1823)

      Anyone listed can answer any further questions you may have pertaining to the guild as well as conduct your interview in our guild discord.
