Frustrated Fury warrior seeks knowledge to improve PVE Dps

3 posts in this topic



Long story short, I've been reading up here on icy-veins. Been using simCraft, changing talents. Trying different tactics. ElitistJerks, icy veins, mmo-champion. Even noxxic. Ive read it all. But still I really struggle to keep up with others on the damage in our raids. And it is very frustrating because I cannot figure out what Im doing wrong anymore.


Current iLvl is 699 



Log from our latest Archimonde (also our first) kill


Watching Skada/dmg meters during the raid, often seeing my self below the tank makes me feel Im holding everyone back. 


One of the things ive noticed is that even with 40% extra chance to crit with bloodthirst it VERY often fail to crit. Leaving me without enrage. Yes, then I use Berserker rage. But way to often do I end up with BS on cd and bloodthirst not critting. Time after time after time. 



Using the rotation described here on Icy veins.


Fingers crossed for some advice. Just scream out if there is any additional information needed.

From what I can see, you don't have either t17 or t18 bonuses which puts you at a major disadvantage in terms of DPS. Your rage management for that fight was fine, there weren't many times that you were sitting around rage capped as you were dumping rage with wild strikes. Your enrage up time was 81% which could be improved by using more uses of berserker rage, but its largely RNG from Bloodthirst. You didn't use your second strength potion during execute phase, which would've helped your DPS immensely. But all in all I wouldn't worry so much, until you get your t18 set pieces. 


Also I see that you have the legendary ring, but it was never used during that fight.

Thanks for the reply.


Some of the items I have on the armory now, including the legendary ring was acquired the week after the day the logs are from.


Helm, ring, boots, gloves and weapons are new. 


Some things have improved a little. I keep practicing. 


Thanks for the input, much appreciated.

      Just wanted some advice on how I can optimize my dps. My ilvl is 885, and have been using specific talents for certain fights. For example, wrecking ball and war machine for Skorpryon. Any tips would be helpful.
      This video explains the talents that I've been using or certain fights.

      I was looking at the best in slot pieces and legendary's when I saw that if i have the 2 best in slot legendary's I only have a 2 set bonus. Am i only going to need a 2 set bonus or are there any other set pieces i should use instead of some other best in slot pieces?

      Hey guys, I was wondering about the Legendary Mannoroth's Bloodletting Manacles. Would it be better to Keep Warpaint because of the Passive on it or switch to Furious Charge?

      Hey everyone and thanks for popping in and providing with some care :)

      I've always been a pretty decent warrior in previous expansions. Maybe not over the top but never bad. However, this expansion, I'm feeling terribly weak. I perform so much subpar my gearlevel that my precious warrior now is nothing but a mere alt.
      SO,  I finally decided that it's time to stop fooling around, I want to become a good warrior again! 
      I've put up a log from an LFR grp on Xavius and can ofc put up more logs if needed. I know I messed up a few priorities in this fight due to utter chaos (LFR u know ;P) but apart from that it's no MAJOR difference from how I normally perform unfortunately:
      My gear is mostly tanking stuff but the stats are not that different in the end:
      ilvl: 868
      Crit: 13%
      Haste: 33%
      Mastery: 27%
      Vers: 9%
      Link to armory:
      I am using simcraft and pawn for my gearchoice and regularily scan to see if anything changes with new gear etc.
      Help is much appreciated and many thanks in advance!
