Combat Low DPS

7 posts in this topic

recently back to WOW, used my lvl 100 boost on my Combat rogue and my DPS is half of what it should be. My Item lvl is about 670. My single target is about 16K and my multi is around 21K. the DMG calculators say it should be between 29K-36K single and 34K-50K multi. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. i use instant poison and Toggle Blade Flurry when its a multi target event and of when single. I Use Anticipation over mark of death as i find it easier.

 

My rotation is start Ambush>Revealing strike>SnD

then i pop my cool downs normally in this order. Killing Spree, Shiv, vanish>ambush>Preparation>Vanish>Ambush>AR

Then SS>5X CP>Eviscerate till any cool down resets while keeping SnD, Revealing strike and Internal Bleeding from Kidney shot up as much as possible. 

 

I don't know what i am doing wrong, is it just being accustomed to the game? I've seen many videos on Rogue rotations and they don't do much more than me. 

 

I need help and have no idea whats wrong Please Help me.

Try holding some CPs (7 or 8) for right when you're going into your Red buff, you'll do somewhat more damage.

 

Also, providing logs is helpful for analysis.

Why are you using Shiv? It's a pointless skill for damage.

Bosses are immune to being stunned, and so are also immune to Kidney Shot's bleed. Do not use Kidney Shot, as it is wasted combo points

 

Don't use Vanish + Ambush until you get Deep Insight (red buff)

 

Your opener should look something like:

  1. Ambush
  2. RvS
  3. SS to Shallow Insight (4x)
  4. Killing Spree
  5. Adrenaline Rush
  6. Eviscerate
  7. Spam SS & Evis to Deep Insight
  8. Vanish > Ambush > Prep > Vanish > Ambush

Your priority order should be this:

  1. Maintain SnD
  2. Maintain RvS
  3. Dump combo points with Evis
  4. SS to build combo points

 

On a side note, MfD does provide a substantial damage boost as well.

MfD is Marked for Death, another talent option in the same tier as Anticipation.

 

Look for Bandit's Guile in your spellbook. Every 4 SS casts you go up an Insight level. Your insight starts at None, then Shallow (green), Moderate (yellow), and Deep (red)

As for logs, you can go to www.warcraftlogs.com and download their client (and register). Once you got it all settled up, you can go ingame, type /combatlog and start playing. Once you're done, type /combatlog again, go into your WoW folder, Logs folder, and it should be there.

 

Upload it with the client and tada. You got a log with analysis.

 

You also have live logging, but I never used it, so I can't talk about it.

      Yesterday, I wrote about updates to the Shoe Shine Kit toy and how its tracking quest got stealth fixed in the latest 7.2.5 PTR build.
      The toy was unavailable until now, because Blizzard simply forgot to fix it and the chest could not be opened. 
      Sheddle Glossgleam leaves the toy store (2nd floor of Photonic Playground - 44, 47) at 12 AM (PST) / 3 AM (EST) realm time and goes drinking in Legendermain Lounge. During his absence, a chest spawns that contains the toy - Shoe Shine Kit. Only one person may loot it, because it will disappear afterwards. The toy makes shoes sparkle. There are still items in the game that haven't been discovered yet, such as the Fishing Artifact appearance The Broken Hook and more.

      Hey there guys Just got back into wow after going on hiatus due to college and a lot of changes has happened since EN was progression material xD So i have spent a while trying to get my character back up and into shape however i feel like i am doing lower dps than i should at 897 ilvl. Could you look me over and yell at me if i am doing something wrong? (note i am not in a raiding guild so all my raids are pugged and i am a scrub at using warcraftlogs since i am using them for the first time since about 3 days ago).

      In addition to pets coming with the Deadmines Pet Battle Dungeon, the latest 7.2.5 PTR build added two pets that drop from the Time-Lost Wallet inside the Deaths of Chromie Scenario and our friends over at WarcraftPets seem to have discovered a new fairie dragon pet possibly from Argus.
      Ageless Bronze Drake (Ageless Bronze Drake)
      The pet is a miniature version of the Reins of the Bronze Drake mount and has a unique Rewind Time ability "This particular drake has oddly retained its age throughout its travels, but its size has certainly changed."
      Bronze Proto-Whelp (Bronze Proto-Whelp)
      The pet's a miniature version of the Reins of the Time-Lost Proto-Drake (Storm Peaks) mount and comes with the an ability to bend time "The Bronze Proto-Whelps have been discovered only in the most peculiar of timelines."
      Sun Darter Hatchling - Faerie Dragon Pet
      Quintessence from WarcraftPets suggests this pet may be from Argus as noted by its description. If you try to paste the item in-game (Patch 7.2), it seems to coincide with a mount tagged named as "REUSE", however 7.2.5 Mount Journal lists the pet and so does the in-game tooltip.

      Sun Darter Hatchling drops from Oddly-Colored Egg (Source N/A) "This unique species of faerie dragon is not usually found on Azeroth."

      Nether Disruptor is again up in both regions and with Seal Your Fate, you can get a free Seal of Broken Fate each day the Nether Disruptor is active.
      The good news is that these bonus seals go beyong the normal 3 limit. All you need to do is accept the quest Fate Sealed from Maggie "Slither" Masterson (coords: 41.19 // 64.46).
      World Boss Apocron

      The permanent Nether Disruptor perk (Epic Hunter) always unlocks a Broken Shore World Boss that drops item level 900 loot and this time, it's Apocron. Below is the loot he drops.

      Four new bosses were added to the Broken Shore. Base item level of their loot is 890+. Old world bosses remain untouched with 860+ loot. The bosses will spawn when the Nether Disruptor's active.
      Patch 7.2 World Boss Loot Tables
      Below you can find loot from the new world bosses. We don't know yet if they share respawn timers with existing world bosses.
