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.

      Guild: Dawn of the Dead | http://www.dotd.org   Faction: Horde | Server: Zul'jin (PvE) | Timezone: EST   Current Progression: 9/10M Nighthold | 2/3M Trial of Valor | 7/7M Emerald Nightmare   We've been raiding max size raids continuously since WoW has been released and are the only guild to have done so here on Zul'jin. We have strong leadership, no drama, and plans to keep raiding for years to come. Unlike many guilds, we're not recruiting for the short term, and we don't over-recruit.   Website: www.dotd.org
        Raid Times: Our schedule is 8-11 EST Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.   Needs: We are a small guild, and we expect high attendance. As such, we recruit people to raid, and desire people who can step in and contribute immediately. We don’t recruit people to sit around, so all spots are for raiders who can expect to be in most every raid.   We are currently looking to add skilled and reliable:   1-2 Melee or Ranged DPS
      1 Healer
      High: Holy Paladin
      Medium: Disc Priest
      *ALL exceptional applicants will be considered regardless of the class.   What we ask of you:   Effort: Not all applicants come from highly progressed guilds, and that’s okay, but it does mean that you need to be prepared. We recruit the player, not the gear, but we do ask that you have some current experience and be a minimum iLvl of 885. You need to have the best gear available to you, (BoE, Crafted) with gems and top end enchants. You also need to be able to display an understanding of your class mechanics, role in a raid, and ability to learn new fights.   Attitude: It’s a game. We play for fun. How you fit in with the guild is taken very seriously. We’re a bunch of mostly 18-30 guys and girls who have fun playing together. While we have a good time, we also know when it’s time to buckle down and work hard.   Skill: The best way to determine skill is to see you in a raid. Because we don’t wish to have anyone transfer that we’re not serious about, be able to express your knowledge of your class and why you’re an exceptional player who would be an asset and is worth a shot. Gear will come with time. Skill will not. Impress us with your knowledge of your class and gameplay mechanics. Feel free to share any logs, theorycrafting, or other work you've done.   Commitment: We make a commitment to you, and ask you to do the same to us. A raid takes a team of more than 20 individuals working together. We rely on you to show up to raids, research your class and new fights, respect your fellow players, and notify us when you are unavailable. You rely on us for gear, experience, and coordination. It's a large investment of our time to train and gear new players, and we ask the same investment on your part so that we can each benefit.   We have a variety of informational resources available to prospective applicants on our web site: http://www.dotd.org-- please refer to our "Applications" forum for detailed information. Also feel free to visit us on WoWProgresss for more information and kill videos! http://www.wowprogress.com/guild/us/...wn+of+the+Dead   Should you wish to speak to someone in-game, please don't hesitate to reach out to an officer directly, whisper Xanah (Xana#1662) or Jeare (Jeare#1759).   We look forward to hearing from you soon!

      Hive have opened up recruitment!

      Hive is a 2-day mythic raiding guild on Ravencrest-Alliance. We are a core of raiders who have been together since before the launch of Legion and are looking to expand on our Raiding Roster for the opening of Tomb of Sargeras. We are a fairly new guild and as such are a work in progress.
      We are aiming for a spot within the top 20-30 guilds on Ravencrest on progress, and are looking for more raiders with an ambition and dedication at the same level.
      Recruitment:
      1x Rogue
      1x Warlock 
      1x Mage 
      1x Rogue
      Legion Progression:
      Emerald Nightmare: 7/7 M
      Trial of Valor: 2/3 M
      The Nighthold: 5/10 M

      Raid Days:
      The raiding times in Hive are Thursday and Sunday from 19:30 until 23:30 Server time (CEST). Invites to the raids will go out starting at 19:15. We require all raiders to be ready and available to execute the first pull of the raid at 19:30.

      Loot:
      The loot in Hive is distributed amongst the raiders through a Loot Council. This council includes 3 Officers and at least 2 Raiders. During the remainder of the Nighthold Raid, all Trial Raiders will have equal rights to any loot drops as a core raider - Once Tomb of Sargeras is open however, Raiders will have priority over Trial Raiders within reason.

      Requirements:
      -All communication during raids will be in English and we require all our raiders to be on Discord and able to speak, with a functioning mic. 
      -80% attendance on main raids. Due to this low attendance requirement, we have a large roster of players and all raiders may be subject to rotation in the raiding team on any given night.
      -A positive attitude towards constructive critisism - We expect all raiders to know their class through and through.
      -Preparation. All raiders are required to show up with enough Flasks, Food, Health potions and Combat potions to last through a night of extensive progress wiping. We may also ask you to use Defiled Augment Runes on progress fights. Vantus Runes are provided by the guild bank.

      Contact:
      If you are looking for further information or have any questions, feel free to contact any of our Officers on Battle.tag:
      Elesís - Elesis#2594
      Jösh - JoshSmith#2461

      I know shamans are kinda messed up right now, what else is new.
      But I'm up to 900 and my already underwhelming DPS has seen no significant increase. I'm pretty sure it's tied to my low haste rating, but I'd like to make sure and see if it's just that or something else I can work to change.

      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/tichondrius/nimbonya
       
      I'll Sim around 760k, This week I got 630k on Krosus, going up to 900k on Skorp and Tich.
      I feel like this is all far too low, one of our top dps is a warlock at i897 and often easily goes 900k and up just on single target.
      I could really use some help figuring out what I've done wrong and what I could improve.

      My usual priority rotation works as follows:
      >Maintain Landslide/Flametongue/Hailstorm
      >Doom winds when off CD and Stormbringer proc'd.
      >Stormstrike when proc'd
      >LavaLash when proc'd
      >Stormstrike when off CD
      >Lavalash when 90+ Maelstrom
      >Rockbiter when -90 Maelstrom
      Feral Spirit-Crash Lightning combo and Doom Winds I'll sometimes delay if there's an add/burn phase, and I have a habit of refreshing Flametongue and Hailstorm on CD if I don't have any procs. I'll also occasionally mismanage Maelstrom and need to do 2-3 Rockbiters to get back up to speed.

      My opener consists of: Prolonged Power>Feral Spirit>Rockbiter>Crash Lightning>Flametongue>Frostbrand>Stormstrike
