Havoc vs Vengeance dps

4 posts in this topic

So i was doing a dungeon for a storyquest, and i was lvl 107 Havoc, and doing the most dps in the group, but halfway through the dungeon we decided to kick the warrior tank for taking a dump for well over 10 minutes. We got a new DH tank at lvl 101 (vengeance, duh) and she surpassed my dps with over 15% by the end of the dungeon, without me resetting my dps meter, how tha F is that possible? I'ma dps whore btw x)

I tried playing vengeance while questing, but felt like the mobs didn't die as quickly as they used to when i was havoc. And yes, i am pretty sure it's not because i suck :P

I know two specs can surpass one another at different lvls, so my question is this: at 110/endgame, what spec for DH is best regarding dps?

Veng is a tank spec.

Havoc is a DPS spec.

In 5 man content, early in a tier, tanks of all classes will commonly out DPS on trash pulls due to their very powerful AoE.

if you are looking at the DPS meter and trying to track why the Tank is doing more damage at lower lvl, it is beacuse of the new scaling system.

 

Veng is tank, but as he is 101 and your 107 everything is worked on a percentage base. therefore you see the mob with higher health as you are higher lvl, he sees the mobs with lower health, his attack takes 5% dmg on the mob at his lvl, to keep it balanced he takes 5% dmg off the mob at your lvl aswell, therefore on your meter he has taken 5% of the health of that mob...when in reality he has taken 5% off the mob at his lvl.

 

the scaling system has effectivly ruined the Dmg meters unless everyone in the group is the same lvl.

 

hope this helps solve your problem

Yeah, i realised this when i saw the mobs in different zones scale to my lvl when they were a lower lvl on my alt. And i understand (kinda) that mobs in dungeons must be scaled down for lower lvls, but i still think the scaling should be taken into consideration for correct dps charts on either skada or Recount. But i'm just on my own little quest to find the best dps class, both single target and multiple targets :)

      About Us
      We’re a Mythic raiding guild of close friends looking to meet new people and have fun, all while progressing at a steady pace.
      We offer a competitive raiding atmosphere on a very minimal schedule.  Raiding only 9 hours a week and being competitive is a tough task, so we want people who are not only reliable, but know how to make the most of a short period of time.
      Past progression included pre-patch kill of Mu’ru, Kil’jaeden, Yogg-Saron (0 Light), Algalon, Anub-arak, Lich King, Cho’gall, Sinestra, Deathwing, Lei Shen, Ra-den, and Garrosh.
       
       
      Raid Times
      Tuesday-Thursday 10PM-1AM CST (server time) or 8-11PM PST. 
      Only NINE hours a week!!!
       
       
      Progression
      Emerald Nightmare (7/7 Mythic)
      Trial of Valor (3/3 Heroic)
      Nighthold (3/10 Mythic, 10/10 Heroic)
       
       
      Recruitment Needs
      Healer
      --Druid
      Melee DPS
      --any competitive, high DPS
      Ranged DPS
      --any competitive, high DPS
       
       
      **All quality players regardless of class will ALWAYS be considered**
       
       
      What We’re Looking For
      -Be reliable – show up to raids on time on a consistent basis.
      -Understand your class- knowing when to swap to a different talent for a specific fight can often push a raid group over the top. Knowing when to play fire instead of arcane, or survival instead of marks is also a very important quality.  This included all hybrid classes that have damage and healing specs.
      -Experience, skill and gear – We are looking for people wo want to progress seriously and have a capability to play your class to a high level. We expect applicants to have combat logs to prove this as well.
      -Attitude – We have a fairly laid back raid atmosphere, but you must be willing to accept criticism.  If you are told you are messing up repeatedly, it is nothing personal, but we may sit you for the fight to get a kill.
      -Outside raid participation – Artifact power and legendries are two systems put in place in Legion that have an impact on raiding.  We are looking for raiders that perform their own player progression outside of raids (mythic+, artifact power farming, etc.) We do not require our raiders to be at 54 traits, but each raider must actively pursue this goal. 
      -Having an alt is a bonus, but by no means required.
       
       
      What We Offer
      -A competitive raid environment
      -A stable guild that has existed for many years
      -Other friendly players with multiple classes to socialize and play with

      If any of this interests you at all, please feel free to contact us in game or on our website.
      We DO NOT do formal applications. After an interview on Discord, we will set you up with a try out during our farm run.  In the end, it’s your play that should decide whether you get into the guild or not.

      Hey,
      I used to be proud of my parses, doing 85-90%+ parses at ilvl 878 or so. Since then I've geared up and feel like my stats are in the right place (though mastery could be a bit higher). Now I'm parsing at 52-65% even though I don't think I'm doing anything majorly different with my rotation, and I even have the 2pc t19...

      I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, please take a look if you have some time.

      Hey to all my warlock-collegues,
      i´m playing aff since vanilla now and it is still my prefered spec (maybe try once Demo to see how it flows) but im always trying to improve my performance.
      I´m not aiming a "orange performance" at Warcraftlogs but purple oder upper blue shold be targeted. SO i just ask here to get some tip where i can improve my performance, cause many eyes and brains work better than just a single one and just using SimCraft is not the best way i think-
      So feel free to get some informations what you think about could work (talents, rotation, gear/stats etc pp).
      Following my armory an some logs of our "Twink&Community-Starter Raid" where we are mostly using Twinks and carrying non-riders out of the Community to show them every raid that is available. Normaly i´m raiding NH HC 9/10.
      Armory Link - Laneana
      Warcraftogs - Twink&Carry nhc
      Thanks for any support.
