Help Me With My DPS, Please!

6 posts in this topic

Hello forum! I need help with my dps. I have read for a long time on noxxic.com and also here, but my dps is still low. On Noxxic.com there is a feature that says how much dps each specc has, and the lowest specc should have around 69k with ilvl 463 gear. I have almost every piece of gear better than that, but my dps is 38k, So I really need help.

Now my fist specc is nothing to think about, I use that for soloing and I think that is fine. But my secondary specc is my raiding one. (The one that doesn't use elusiveness.)

Now the specc is mostly from Noxxic and here but also what some of the people in the raidfinder group told me was better.

The combatlog; I didnt know how to use it or do it, so a little help with how to use it would be apreciated ;D.

Rotation:

My rotation is in stealth ambush and (if needed) shadowstep. Then I use Sinister Strike to get 5 combopoints and always keeping reavealing strikes up. With 5 CP I refresh Slice and Dice, and when both revealing strikes and SnD is up I spend my combopoints on Eviscerate. Killing Spree I use everytime it's possible preferably when I am low on energy, so I build up some combopoints first since using a finishing moves regenerates some energy. I try to use Adrenaline Rush after a Killing Spree so that the cooldown is shortened by the finishing moves.

I don't really know what defensives to use, I mainly use Cloak of Shadows when it is possible or I save it for when I need to resist a strong spell from the boss, and the same thing goes about smokebomb (trying to do it close to other players). If more damage resist is needed I also do Combat Readiness. My AOE rotation isn't a rotation... (I'm just saying) So I need help with that, and I really don't understand the guides on how to do it.

I'm not using Rupture, since it's just some few percent of my DPS and people have told me not to use it.

Poisons; I dont really know which one to use. Some have told me to use leaching poison but the guide advice not to. And also the fourth tier of my talent; I don't knoiw what to chose.

If there is something I missed to mention, please let me know and I tell you how I am doing it.

Regards,

Heradsinn!

According to noxxic combat is pulling 61,622 dps at 468ilvl, which is a ok benchmark I suppose but I wouldn't take to much stock in it. Rotation and gameplay is the most important. Like everyone else will post, "without any logs its hard to give you much help". World of Logs is as easy as going to the site, making an account, and reading the directions. At first glance though you don't have everything reforged/gemmed/enchanted and because of that you aren't hit capped, which is a must for rogues. I would suggest going to Mr. Robot and making the changes it tells you. Its not the end all be all of your decision making but it's a step in the right direction. I would almost guaranty you see a difference just by doing that. If your rotation and priority system is as stated you shouldn't have a issue.

I sent an email to WoL Support for help on how to do the log. It will probably be up here soon, if they answer me Posted Image.

From what I understand, a tool like Shadowcraft is more reliable than Noxxic. It can tell you what reforges/gems will be helpful as well. Often times the theoretical DPS is almost impossible to reach because it requires perfect play and doesn't fully account for bad RNG. On the other hand, you can be doing better than 38k with your gear.

As far as AOE goes, check the icy-veins guide. Basically it says if there are less than 8 targets, just turn on blade flurry and continue the SnD/Evisc rotation. If more than 8 targets, fan of knives to five combo points and then crimson tempest to spend them.

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 1/10M NH, 10/10H NH 6/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      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.
      If you are interested, please PM me (violentravi#1826) or recruiting officer Sepsis (tuxedomask#1712) in game.  However, if you have time (which goes a long way) for us to give you a real evaluation there is a short forum to fill out linked on our discord: https://discord.gg/JMVuYRW
       
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      So I know the title sounds a bit silly, but hear me out. My problem with MfD is, quite simply, that it locks the upper body of your character into the /point animation and I hate how it looks. I hate it hate it hate it. I use MfD, then Run Through, and my rogue does this weird crouching lunge forward with her cutlass pointing up into the sky. It's so infuriating, and I can't just wait until the animation finishes because I'll lose DPS.
      So, how much does MfD outclass the other max level talents for Outlaw? I just want to know if it's even possible to take one of the other talents and have even somewhat competetive DPS.

      Hi,
      I need some help figuring out my rogues weak auras.
      I currently have this: https://gyazo.com/e9f6967a7c2e56fdb4a88f9c554ebd22
      What I want to happen is that when there are 3 seconds remaining on for ex rupture, the icon of rupture glows and once rupture is gone the icon just stays there glowing.
      Secondly, could someone give me the ID for the envenom buff as I cannot seem to track it whatever I do. Hopefully in the same format as the others in the picture above.
      Can anyone help me with this by guiding me on how to do it or giving me the string on the new one?
      Thanks in advance.

      Hey guys, I currently have alot of choice when it comes to what trinkets I should use. I ofcourse have been simming all the different options but because alot of these combinations include Nightblooming Frond, I take them with a grain of salt and am looking for other opinions. Just for FYI the highest SimDPS combo i am getting is Nightblooming Frond + Hunger of the Pack which is at 754 112 SimDPS. With all options I am between 897 and 898 iLvL. These are my choices
      895 - Heroic Warforged - Nightblooming Frond
      890 - Heroic - Entwined Elemental Foci
      885 - Heroic - Arcanogolem Digit
      885 - Titanforged - Unstable Arcanocrystal (+930 to all secondary stats)
      880 - Mythic - Bloodthirsty Instinct
      880 - Mythic 14 - Hunger of the Pack
      940 - Legendary - Kil'Jaeden's Burning WIsh (This basically is not an option however due to me having Greenskin's Wrists and Insignia of Ravenholdt Ring)
      Cheers for all your help, If you would like anymore information just ask.
