General DPS Troubleshooting and WoL

Recommended Posts

So during 5.1 I got a really good feel for how to troubleshoot my DPS as afflcition by using world of logs. Most of what I learned was through reading posts Zagam, Gravyspasm and others made giving specific advice when they posted logs.

Now that I'm dabbling in other specs like Destro and Demo I find myself not sure what to look for in my logs to pick apart problem areas in my playstyle. I was wondering if we could get some basic, spec specific, guidelines for what to look for when reviewing our logs.

For example with Affliction the first things I'll look at are my DoT uptimes, Haunt uptimes, and DS usage. From there it varies based on the encounter, but those three usually give me a good idea of where I was losing potential damage.

So to not get long-winded here I'll stop and just ask, what do you guys look for when you review your logs when playing destruction, demonology and affliction?

Destruction:

Immolate uptime, Rain of Fire uptime, average Chaos Bolt hit

Demonology:

Shadowflame uptime, Molten Core procs = Soulfire uses, Doom uptime, Corruption uptime

So from your tips and quirks thread it looks like getting 30-40% uptime on shadowflame is the number i'm looking for. I missed that the first time browsing that thread. 100% on everything else is what I'll look for.

I'll have to find a way to test out what my max buffed Chaos Bolt damage looks like. I hadn't even considered checking average CB damage, but it makes sense to get get a picture of how much I'm likely not using it at peak buff/proc/CD times.

Good stuff, thanks Zagam. I'm still tinkering with which specs I want to sport through 5.2. I want tri-spec so badly. Blizz please?

@Gravy: If no mage to compete with, what do? I usually run with another warlock friend so I'll have to use him as my benchmark Posted Image

I don't even know what to think to hear two locks and no mage. Last time i saw something like that was heroic LK

Also maybe for destruction Havoc? As was mentioned in another thread, being able to peel off 2 chaos bolts/incinerates for the price of 1 ever 25s is pretty awesome.
