Frustrated Fury warrior seeks knowledge to improve PVE Dps

Recommended Posts



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 

Armory: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/grim-batol/Tumt%C3%BCm/advanced


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.

      I have one few questions concerning fury rotation:
      1. Should I use bloodbath only with Battle Cry?
      2. Should I use Rampage immediately after it is available or should I always wait for Frothing Berserker?
      3. During Enrage time, should I spam raging blow or prioritize bloodthirst then raging blow?
      4. Is CoF ilvl860 better then nightmare egg ilvl940?
      Best regards

      Hi all, just a few questions on haste... the general wisdom seems to be that the more haste the better. I'm at 34% haste and I'm wondering if that's overkill. I've got a few gems and enchants I could swap over to Mastery. If you need an armory link let me know.

      I'm currently getting somewhere between 250k and sometimes 270k during boss encounters (according to Skada) in the Nighthold. Everyone keeps telling me that its my iLvl/gear, but I'm not sure. I have everything enchanted and gem'd.  I have been trying to acquire gear with more haste, because I feel that  it is my biggest issue. I'm only at 20%. Any thoughts or opinions would be greatly appreciated. I am also currently going by the Icy Veins recommended rotation. Maybe not to the exact letter, but I feel like I have a lot of downtime. Which is why I am suspecting its all due to low haste.  I have linked my profile and logs below. Thank you!

      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.
