LOG: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/TA2vBqcFfm8aVpXn#type=damage-done&fight=27&source=3

 

I hope that links right - I have no logs on Butcher/etc, but this is the most stand-still raid encounter I can think of. I hope that's okay! I didn't have to do more than a little moving, and this is pretty indicative of my DPS in most encounters that aren't a lot of cleaving or movement (My dps is pretty bad in fights like Xul'H or Iskar as well, but they're probably a lot harder to read)

 

Armory: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/bloodscalp/Sunfury/simple

 

As you can see, I have a mix of mythic dungeon, heroic and normal HFC gear, and a few pieces of baleful I'm not yet rid of.

 

normalized stat weights given by my own simcraft runs are

 

Int 1

Spell Power: .89 (due to archmage's ring)

Haste: .57

Mastery: .67

Multi: .62

Crit: .57

Versa: .51

 

My rotation is the same as the one listed on icy veins/altered time/etc -> I do admit that I make some mistakes, sometimes I split a cast on a crystal and it despawns before the cast lands, sometimes I supernova when I could have held it for my next crystal, etc.

 

1. Prepot on pull

2. stack Arcane Charges to 4/let boss get positioned

3. Drop crystal + arcane power

4. PoM Arcane Blast + 2 Super novas

5. Arcane Blast/Arcane Missile to 50% mana

6. Evocation

7. Stack AC to 4

8. Expend missile charges

9. Arcane Barrage

10. Repeat 7-9 until evocation has 20sec left

11. Drop Crystal + charge and commence burn phase

 

With Supernova being used on cooldown when I'm not really close to 50% mana or have a really good reason to hold it (like crystal coming up soon, or lots of adds soon)

 

I realize that I only have the 690 ring and don't have any good trinkets, which is a big deal, but that can't account for all of my crappy DPS - I'm looking at my log rankings and they're all <20th percentile for my ilvl, so I must be doing something wrong.

 

Any help would be great!

Well, let's see. I'm not the best at reading logs, but here goes. 

 

There's no evocation after the first burn (first AP @ 11 sec, first Evo @ 85). The goal is to get through half your mana in roughly the duration of arcane power. The burn phase rotations given on sites are effectively guidelines for doing that--you want to be arcane blasting your little heart out while AP is up. Less missiles in burn, more blast. You spent way too long on low mana, and arcane as a spec punishes this sort of mistake incredibly heavily. I'm not going to poke through the spell casts in more detail, that is for someone with better log-fu than me.

 

There's a 5 sec gap less than a minute into a zakuun fight; I have no idea what you could possibly be doing then (it's not a fissure soak...). Gotta be careful with that kind of thing!

 

Potions are good, use 'em! So are proper enchants.

 

You're not going to be world-beating without proper trinkets or tier, but your current gear sims around 44k single-target with light movement.

Ah. So I should more or less make my burn phase last as long as arcane power, essentially? I know that's something I'm DEFINITELY not doing - I've been burning down to 50% mana and extending it when I can with supernovas, arcane missiles, and so on. In fights that are a lot of movement like Xul I sometimes NEVER evocate until phase 4 because there's so much movement that I regen to full...

 

That's probably the single biggest thing I'm doing wrong, then - I really didn't understand that burn phase was dependent on arcane power, not on mana, per se. I'll see how that feels on dummies, then.

      Hello, sorry for my bad english. I post here because i've some problems with my DPS in ToS M, my IL is 928 and i only can rise and mantain 900k-1M but when i will do simmin in raidbots my dps rise 1.4 M :S.

      Hello, 
      I am concerned that I am severely under performing as a fury warrior. I can manage to parse typically in the 80s for almost every fight in heroic ToS with a few exceptions: Mistress, Host, Avatar. I'm currently 933 equipped and I'm not at all concerned about my stats... I know I should and could be parsing in the 90s. But I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. 
       
      My opener looks something like this: Charge, Pop Moonglaives trinket, Pop all CDS, Raging Blow, Oden's Fury, Rampage, then start normal priority rotation: Enraged RB>100 rage Rampage>RB>BT>FS. 
       
      I have recently discovered that I have been doing my execute phase entirely wrong. I just went and tried first two bosses of heroic ToS again. Parses went up slightly... Goroth: 83->89, Inquis:84->90 but still not where I need to be. 
      Another think I'd like to mention is that I try to prioritize Enraged RB @100 rage before hitting rampage. According to Kelade (one of top fury warriors in US), this is 100k dps difference. Although at times I find myself in an awkward situation where I'm at 100 rage with RB on CD and I literally have to wait a whole global to hit it... I'd like to know how to make that stop lol. 
       
      Last issue I'd like to bring up is this: Most of the time not all my CDs will line up perfectly together... BC, glaives, OF will be up but Avatar will be down. I'm slightly confused about when to use All/some of my cds... especially on fights like heroic KJ. Fights like Harj and Miss I'm confused about if I should hold all my cds for adds or blow them in the beginning along with prepot... I feel like prepot is a total waste without cds...
       
      Below you will find the link to my armory and logs. Please Help me. I need to be parsing much higher than I am. My guild is doing mythic and I don't want to be the one holding us back.

      Hi, so I'd like to think that have got the fury rotation down, I've been using the Icy veins guide and some pointers from MMO-Champion. I don't think I have any big issues apart from the BC with CoF trinket, like if it's worth waiting for other cooldowns like OF to be up with BC, that's my main question. 
      So I have linked my logs for some PuG raiding the other week, so if someone is up for the task of analyzing them for me, that'd be great. Sorry if my sentences are wrong or weird, I'm really hungover...

      ( In Goroth Normal, you will see some downtime in the middle of the fight. I got disconnected that is the answer:/ )

      Hey guys,
      I'm new here in the Icy Veins forums and would like to request your assistance.
      So this is my Mage https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/id/14478881 haven't been playing Legion for a long time (around 2 weeks and a half), been trying to start rading so I would like to improve my DPS, I'm running GS.
      What I would like to ask you guys is if you could check me out and see what I could improve, it's been hard to get some more gear now since it's hard to get into groups, plus my pawn addon seems like its kind of bugged which is kind of confusing me about gear/stats. I know my stat priority for GS Build but nor sure about stat weigths for it.
      Hope you guys can help me, thank you in advance !
