So my guild is 8/13 mythic right now and we're starting to hit dps checks. I'm reasonably good at staying near the tops of the meters, but looking at my rankings and such I know there is SO much more that I can do, and I'm not 100% sure where I'm going wrong. I've been toying around with stats and my crit vs mastery gemming and enchanting, and I noticed a HUGE spike when I swapped to pure crit at ilvl 731, but as I got more gear that wasn't itemized as well my dps stayed the same, and I swapped to pure mastery. Now I'm running with my enchants crit and my gems mastery, to test on this week's raid.

Hello there fellow owlkin
 
First of all - your gear. I want to stress out that it only gives you dps if you're doing your rotation corretly. Gear plays quite a little role in overall dps. 
However, I've opened your armory and can see that you're using Prophecy of fear. Afaik it is one of the crappiest trinket for us that exists. Int is not worthless, but other than that - you want to replace it. DSI (trinket from council) is kind of BiS and you want it for every fight in HFC. As for second trinket - you either need SoC (class trinket) for fights that you need that starfall cleave for adds or Sandman's Pouch (6/6) for single target non-demon damage ir heirloom trinket for single target demon fights.
As for your stats - Simcraft is your friend. Use it and test stuff. Currently you have +275 crit from enchants. I'm pretty sure that it is not worth it, and you'd better invest that ino haste, as you have only 745 haste compared to 1.6k enchanted crit. 
 
For your gameplay - learn to use potions. On hc archi kill you used 0 potions. 
Your dot uptime is quite low, your opener is a mess. Basically just read this thread and apply that to yourself. You're doing same mistakes, so I would just repeat myself :) 

 

So as I've mentioned - you need to get your rotation straight, that will improve your dps more than any gear change :)

Thanks for checking up on me--yeah, I still had Prophecy equipped from testing it on Iskar. Whoops. I normally run with DSI/SoC as my two. I believe on the Archi kill you're referencing I ran out of potions. Normally I try to use both.

 

Thanks for the link, I'll check it out!

 

:)

Not just Archi fight, I looked at 4 or 5 fights, and on most of them you only used 1 potion. That's just a point to improve :)

      I came to Icy Veins to setup my Elemental Shaman only to find your Talent setup does not match what is offered in the game presently.  Below I have listed what I see in my current in-game talent setup and bolded those items that do not match your setup at all.
      Current in-game Talents listed:                                                   Your Listing:                      
      15 Exposed Elements Echo of the Elements Elemental Blast               Earthen Rage 30 Aftershock Master of Elements Totem Mastery       Call the Thunder 45 Spirit Wolf Earth Shield Static Charge         60 High Voltage Storm Elemental Liquid Magma Totem       Master of the Elements 75 Nature's Guardian Ancestral Guidance Wind Rush Totem         90 Earthen Rage Primal Elementalist Icefury       Surge of Power 100 Unlimited Power Stormkeeper Ascendance         I thought someone here should know about these differences because it appears there has been no update recently to your setup.   I know that I personally would appreciate an update so that I can adjust my in-game setup to work better.

      <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.

      restoration druid nerfs 8.1

      I saw on Wowhead that Restro druids are receiving a nerf to  Tranquility : Heals all allies within 40 yards for [(41%37% of Spell power) * 5] over 8 sec. Each heal heals the target for another 16 over 8 sec, stacking.
      Healing increased by 100% when not in a raid.

      I feel like its not necssary and are going to effect my healing in a bad way duh. (Nerfs normally do.) But as it is right now im far behind Mistweaver munks and every priest spec. 
      My Tranquility is my second higest if not the higest healing abillity i have (Thats what Details Tells me.) 

      And im unsure how the Autumn leaves changes is gonna effect me, wheter or not its for the better or worse.

      What do you guys think?

      This is my first post please no roast 👶
