Hello buddy

 

I've given a look at your armory and logs, first thing to notice - you need to get a single target trinket. For demon fights heirloom trinket is the best fights, for non-demon fights I use 6/6 upgraded Sandman's pouch. Other than that your gear is fine, just replace your boots with non-versatility :)

 

As for the dps - you did your opener wrong. That's probably the most important part of the fight, and you should work on it. What I'm currently going with is:

-2.5 sec Incarnation

Prepot > Starsurge

CA, Racial > moonfire (macro this!!)

2x Starfire > Starsurge > repeat. On your last CA gcd you want to refresh dots on the boss. 

 

Your racial went off 6.5secs after pull, so you wasted 3.5secs of that delicious haste buff. Also you popped your CA way before dotting the boss. That is also a waste. 

Next thing is your dot uptime. First 2 mins of the fight when the boss was fully available for you:

https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/2FqJMbA97jRxvDNp#fight=5&type=damage-done&source=16&start=1609518&end=1733115

And you had only 88.13% uptime on moonfire. Only acceptable values are 99%+, as it is extremely easy to keep your dots up (refresh sunfire every solar phase and moonfire every second lunar phase).

Furthermore, fight lasted 4mins +, you did not die, yet used your CDs only once. 

 

I'm getting the idea that you're using UI that is not helping you. Here's link of my TellMeWhen icons: http://i.imgur.com/GSPwRMV.jpgThe screenshot is old, but there's only few minor things that I've changed. I don't suggest you should do same thing, but you should adapt it and have something similar. Basically you want to NEVER look down on your action bar. Screenshot doesn't show it, but my cast bar is right below eclipse bar. So I can see all the info I need in a very concentrated part of the screen, and as it is in the middle - I can see what's going on in the fight, while keeping my rotation going. 

 

Fix these things that I've mentioned, and then repost your logs for more advanced evaluation. However by fixing these things you'll notice a decent dps improvement.

Just a general tip - if your raid is using cds on the pull, you should top the dps chart for atleast 20-30secs. Only specs that you should "lose" to are sub rogues and arcane mages. If you see anyone else above you - you're probably doing something wrong :)

Sandman's pouch isn't viable for boomkin unless the fight is very very short. Your mythic reaver kills are 3:47-5+ minutes

 

When understanding that Zakuun and Reaver are the only single target fights in HFC currently, and it is true that Orb of Voidsight and DSI is best for Zakuun. For guilds that are still progressing through HFC in any capacity, Reaver is going to be longer than guilds that have mythic on farm. The longer the fight, the better seed will do. I personally would not recommend anyone using Sandman's if they have Seed + DSI.

But it's quite easy for a group to reach stage when reaver dies in <2mins :)

And yes, if you're having problems with bombs - SoC is the way to go. 

Personally I use sandman's for Kormrok, as it is also single target fight (for my group) with a couple of "tank hands". Regular hands disappears in 1-2 secs

Technically, Kromrok is pretty much single target becasue the hands should die before you can do any meaningful starfall.

I'm going to have to try out Sandman's pouch for myself. The more I think about it, doubling my crit while ring and full CDs are up on Iron Reaver makes sense.

Yeah I agree. I'll have to go look at my logs to decide because the strat for farm/zerg kormrok really depends on what your guild is willing to deal with. For my guild we go purple pool and deal with empowered pools.

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 5/11 Mythic Antorus. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:15 PM until 12:15 AM Eastern. Currently, our main goal is to push Mythic progression & finish out the raid before next patch, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us, because we will not be doing Heroic or anything like that.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated. In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      As far as classes are concerned, at this time, we do not have ANY rogues, DPS warriors, havoc DH, or wind walkers.
      If you are interested, add me to battle tag and we will talk (violentravi#1826), I will accept mostly anyone who wants to be a bench or casual, but for raiding purposes, you must be able to provide logs.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which semi-recently transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some shit.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are in need of any competent DPS, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.
