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.

      <Pickle Palace> is a recently formed guild on Illidan, but is made up of veteran players who wanted to take a step back from semi-hardcore raiding. We are currently raiding Mythic Antorus (9/11), with our goal being to finish it out before the end of the expansion. Our community is actively playing outside of raid time, pushing M+ and hanging out on discord.

      We raid on a 2 day schedule. Our raid days are Tuesday and Wednesday 9-12 EST. And will be adding a 3rd raid day for BfA! (Thursday or Monday)

      We are currently recruiting,

      All Exceptional Ranged DPS
      &
      Shaman w/ offpsec heals

      Expectations
      Have a great attitude every night. Be prepared for every raid; this includes purchasing consumables and studying encounter strategies. We provide feast/codex/flasks other consumables are your responsibility Zero tolerance policy for criticizing others' performance. Officers will take care of it, worry about yourself and yourself only. Be critical of your performance and take time outside of raiding hours to analyze warcraftlogs for personal improvement. Have fun. We love playing with each other in a friendly, team-oriented, boss-crushing atmosphere -- and you should too! Must be able to tolerate adult language

      Hi everyone. I just killed HC Varimathras and I was surprised by my low damage. There was not second time warp because we used the first one at 20% HP but I think I should get higher numbers. Can anyone tell me what did I do wrong? Was it really only in TW? I do not think so :/.

      Looking for a fun, casually serious progression guild? Hordeland Security could be your new home! We started at launch, and have raided on Blackhand, Baelgun, and now Turalyon. 

      We currently raid on Tuesdays and Thursdays 7:00- 9:15 Central Time. We understand that no one has an unlimited amount of time to play. We raid with a fun, casual, yet goal oriented focus; we achieve AotC in current content and then progress into Mythic. We also have a few that pvp, and we've been known to also do mog/achievement runs.
      Interested? Drop us a line!

      Thanks for your consideration - happy raiding!

      I'm not entirely sure what I am doing wrong that is getting me this result, but I am getting about a 30k dps difference on training dummy when I use a defile, clawing shadows, shadow infusion build than when I use the recommended talents. I left the rest of my talents unchanged and I have yet to see where the dps difference is coming from (arbiter or clawing shadows), but I'm very confused as to how this could happen. Links to armory and mrrobot below.

      Defile damage breakdown, Arbiter damage breakdown
      I felt like I had a harder time keeping my disease up and using coldheart on cooldown (or rather whenever at max stacks) with the arbiter build. Am I missing some key thing or do I just need to git gud? Thanks in advance for any help.
