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 :)

      Hello, 
      I am concerned that I am severely under performing as a fury warrior. I can manage to parse typically in the 80s for almost every fight in heroic ToS with a few exceptions: Mistress, Host, Avatar. I'm currently 933 equipped and I'm not at all concerned about my stats... I know I should and could be parsing in the 90s. But I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. 
       
      My opener looks something like this: Charge, Pop Moonglaives trinket, Pop all CDS, Raging Blow, Oden's Fury, Rampage, then start normal priority rotation: Enraged RB>100 rage Rampage>RB>BT>FS. 
       
      I have recently discovered that I have been doing my execute phase entirely wrong. I just went and tried first two bosses of heroic ToS again. Parses went up slightly... Goroth: 83->89, Inquis:84->90 but still not where I need to be. 
      Another think I'd like to mention is that I try to prioritize Enraged RB @100 rage before hitting rampage. According to Kelade (one of top fury warriors in US), this is 100k dps difference. Although at times I find myself in an awkward situation where I'm at 100 rage with RB on CD and I literally have to wait a whole global to hit it... I'd like to know how to make that stop lol. 
       
      Last issue I'd like to bring up is this: Most of the time not all my CDs will line up perfectly together... BC, glaives, OF will be up but Avatar will be down. I'm slightly confused about when to use All/some of my cds... especially on fights like heroic KJ. Fights like Harj and Miss I'm confused about if I should hold all my cds for adds or blow them in the beginning along with prepot... I feel like prepot is a total waste without cds...
       
      Below you will find the link to my armory and logs. Please Help me. I need to be parsing much higher than I am. My guild is doing mythic and I don't want to be the one holding us back.

      I had some great help with my Fury build from this forum, and have recently attempted to try Arms. 
       
      My guild did a full normal ToS run today, and i captured the logs. I seem to be parsing OK, but it felt clunky.
       
      Here are the logs: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/mfLjRTWXrkb4ZxQY/#boss=-2&difficulty=0&source=20
      Armory:  https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/nagrand/çleâvâgé
       
      Any pointers would be appreciated.

      I've been playing a hunter for as long as I've been playing this game.  And for the first time in raiding, I feel like I am not doing my best and I cannot figure out why. I look at second by second rotations of top parsing hunters. In the past I was the one helping others out and writing small guides on forums...now I'm the one asking for help. 
      Here is a link to Goroth Mythic (my hunter's name is Mezäsu):
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/KjRvcMqbYGrp16Bt#fight=3
      I am very open to criticism and any help anyone has to offer.
      I tried going into the Discord to ask for help there but was not able to get a word in (as the helpers were busy with other people). Hoping I may have better luck here.
