Should I be holding my VoiT until after my first VB?

5 posts in this topic

I know Void Torrent is my highest priority. But I feel like using first VB to make sure my dots get refreshed is more important.

Is it more important to max/min my insanity decay (Use VoiT instantly) or make sure my DOT uptime is maximized?

I'm doing the same, by the time I usually enter bioscience both dots are close to expiring. I always try for the void bolt too but I did manage to be too late with it sometimes. Nothing sux more than having to reapply dots while in voidform.

In my opinion, refresh your dots prior to entering Void Form if they're below 6-7 seconds. And don't burn Void Torrent or Mindbender right upon entering voidform - build up a few stacks first so the decay is actually noticeable. Then start rotating in cooldowns to stay in voidform longer. The whole idea is to maximize voidform uptime, and the longer you can stay in voidform, a) the more damage you can pump out due to increased haste, and b) the faster you'll get back into voidform once you drop. Basically i see each cast of voidform as a personal challenge to see how many stacks I can accrue before my insanity hits zero. 

The endgame being preparation for using Surrender to Madness, which is by far my favorite new ability in this expansion. My record so far (and this is at pre-110 gear levels, priest wasn't my first priority for leveling) is 34 stacks. StM triples your Insanity generation, so if I can manage insanity equally well I have the potential to sit in voidform for a good 60-90 seconds. That said, the additional haste from being in voidform for over a minute may make it that much easier to stay up. I've seen mediocre usage of this cooldown in heroics and it's still ridiculously powerful. Enough to outpace my 840 ilvl Demo lock's burst. And the guy was only in StM for about 25 seconds.

I've found that it varies on the fight. In fights where I instantly pop StM and I'm expecting the fight to last long enough for me to use VoiT twice if I time it right, I pop it almost instantly - possibly I Mind Blast first if my DoTs can stay up long enough.

For fights where I know I'll only get one VoiT off, I just hold off using it for as long as possible. Remember a lot of haste stacks makes it deal a lot more damage.

      Hey Gang, would you mind looking at my logs and let me know where I can improve my rotation as an assassination rogue.  I notice that all of my best logs have a significant amount of Poison Bomb and I don't like praying to RNJesus.  I am hoping there are some things I can do to hit top dps.  
      Here is my armory. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/emerald-dream/Elodar/simple.  I know my Mastery is low but lately I have had crap luck on drops.  One of the options I have to bring up my Mastery is to drop Insignia of Ravenholdt +Well Flattened Wristguards and change to Denial of Half Giants + an 890 Spellblades Gemmed Signet but Denial is a sub rogue legendary.  This brings my agility to 34248, mastery to 137%, and my crit to 28%.  I tried running this combo with the higher mastery and did not feel like I was doing more dps even though the Sims say I should.  
       
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/dF3qCynDbvGrVAh6#fight=14&type=damage-done&source=186  This is one of my better logs where I think I did most thing correct.  Please look at this and let me know if there is something I am missing.

      Hi Guys, I need little help with stats priority and rotation. I think, Im doing something wrong with my dps. Cant break 500k-550k DPS on single target and need advice to someone AoE target bosses in Nighthold.

      So I've been pushing and pushing to get my DPS up over the course of the new expansion.  I've managed to bag my self the legendary shoulders and feet. I've been looking at logs and trying to improve things. I learnt a new opener (which massively improved my dps) and got my crit up (as I noticed other rogues had much higher crit than me).
      And now I just don't know what to do. I just can't seem to get better!
      I'll put a link to logs from the last heroic nighthold we did. It wasn't my best night performance wise  anyway (i'm playing on a potato and we had a huge raid group - fps sat between 6-15 for the whole raid). I think I'm doing something wrong with my main rotation when compared to the other rogue than joined us but I just don't know what it is. I'm stumped.

      So if anyone can see obvious mistakes then please shout at me so I can fix them. It's getting really frustrating!    You should be able to get to past logs through this link too.

      Hello, since 7.1.5 my raid performances dropped dramatically. From checkmywow I fire too few AiS, but I'd ask for more analisys as I feel I'm constantly spamming AiS.

      Logs:

      Many thanks for anyone that would help me sorting this mess.
