DPS question

8 posts in this topic

Hey everyone,

I hope you had an awesome start with Legion and that you are enjoying it so far! Currently I have a question regarding the DPS you're dealing in average. I cannot surpass 135k dps with 826 iLvL Gear at the target dummy in stormwind (the raid one ofc). I am using the momentum build and I am still trying to optimize my rotation. What I am basically doing is:

  1. Maxing out my fury
  2. using fel rush / retreat (depends which one isup)
  3. spend all my fury on Chaos Strike while momentum
  4. Having Fury of the Illidari up when available and when Momentum is up

 

Is there something I am doing wrong? A DK friend of mine is dealing 180-200k DPS with the same gear and right procs. An elemental shaman is dealing 160k DPS. We are all on the same dummy target for around 2-3 minutes. The DK friend uses his army spell in the beginning of course.

Here's my armory link (at the time of this writing not the newest!): http://eu.battle.net/wow/de/character/blackmoore/Ilduros/simple

Do you have any suggestions regarding my rotation?

Your armory isn't updating, this is a widespread issue with the armory right now and we're waiting on blizzard to fix it. Nothing you can do right now about it.

Logs please. Even if it is just target dummy it helps a lot to tell what you are doing wrong.

I spent some time on the dummy and I'm doing about 172k without using Meta.

Something that stands out on your rotation you listed is the lack of Glaive Throw, this + Bloodlet talent is a huge DPS gain.

Something to note also is that the SW dummy is a really bad target, lot of random AOE around there so unless you're using filers well on skada/recount/details it is easy to get inflated information. i.e., when I first looked at mine I was doing 468k dps...knowing that had to be wrong I filtered it out to only being the raid target dummy and I was doing 172k.

Another problem might be, that you maxed your Fury before using FR/VR since those generate Fury aswell (with related talent picks). Further it could be the lack of using Eye Beam with the Anguish of the Deceiver Gold-Trait.

Thanks for the advice! I am currently ILvL 842 and with the Prepared talent I am doing around 175k DPS on a single target dummy in the Fel Hammer. I changed from Demon's Bite and Prepared to the Demon's Blade Talent (not so spammy) and now I am doing 195k DPS with my full rotation (Meta at the beginning etc.). Since all guides are saying, that prepared is the best suit for most (especially single target) sitatuions, I am guessing that I am doing something "horribly" wrong.

 

With which tool shall I post the logs?

I'd say https://www.warcraftlogs.com/ would do. Though it might take a while to log your dummy training DPS.

Out of curiosity, what is a reasonable amount of dps a havoc demon hunter ought to be dishing out at 845 ilvl? I'm kinda bouncing up and down on recount anywhere from 250k-300k on the fel hammer raider's training dummy. I've gone as low as 160ish on certain boss fights that force me to run out of melee range of the boss a lot due to mechanics.

Depends a lot on fight length right now, in a mythic with my guild I can drop 380-410k in a 45 second fight w/ lust. In a heroic with 4 randoms sometimes I'm as low as 225k on a 3min fight w/ mechanics and no lust.

 

Sounds like you're about on point, we'll know a LOT better how everyone is doing next week with raids and mythic+

      Strangely Ironic is guild of friends and family that has been around the block a couple times. We are trying to recruit active players to form a raid team. Due to RL and the age of the game our ranks have dwindled. We are a casual guild looking to raid two nights a week from 9pm EST to 11pm EST; days of the week will change as I work shift work. If you want to join and don't want to raid we are still accepting all applicants as we want to foster an active community.
      No hot-heads please, as we are a guild who recognizes that this is just a game and we are all here to have fun and relax.
      If you are interested add reddfoxx#1496 or head to strangelyironic.enjin.com to fill out an application.

      We're a guild looking for people who want to have a great time, hang out with each other, laugh and have fun while killing stuff in raids! 

      Guild Name: RaidCat
      Faction: Alliance
      Realm (EU): Silvermoon
      Realm Type: PVE
      Realm Timezone: CEST
      Progression: 8/11 HC Antorus
      Raid Times: 19:30st - 22:00st
      Raid Schedule: Friday and Monday (additional raids on Wednesday for alts, mythic etc)
      Openings: Range DPS (help us knock those melee off the top of the meters!)

      We raid twice a week in the evenings with optional extra runs appearing as requested. 
      Currently we also raid on Wednesdays (normal) to help gear up mains and alts.
      As our raid roster increases and  heroic progress continues Wednesday evening will likely become a mythic progression night. However mythic is not our end goal or focus, but rather something we try to make extra time for. Social members also welcome!

      Looking for: Range DPS (warlock, mage, hunter, shadow priest, hunter) Other applications considered.

      We do everything from Transmog runs, PVP, Mythic+ and whatever else you can think of, with our main focus on raiding.

      We are aiming for a relaxed yet skilled raiding environment where people can fill in for each other, not having to worry about always attending since people can fill in for you, focusing on having fun and improving ourselves with each kill.

      We do care about people following tactics and knowing what they're doing (so do your homework or ask for help!) so we may actually get some stuff done as well, that's why we're looking mainly for experienced raiders that want a more flexible environment (if you are new to raiding you are still welcome)

      We use Discord and you are welcome to join and hang out before deciding to move over.

      Hello my Demonhunter Fellows! :)
      I´m one of those Demon Hunter Players, that is still playing with T20 Set. But i look forward to switch to my T21 "sweet" Demonic Build soon.
      So here´s my question: Theres pretty much an even opinion pool of people saying i should play with Raddon's Cascading Eyes + Anger of the Half-Giants and people saying Delusions of Grandeur + Anger of the Half-Giants ... I think both have a good effect with the new Demonic Build but which is better? Due to the fact, that these are 2 Set piece slots it would be nice to know which is BiS.

      Hello everyone,
       
      i changed class from Priest a few weeks ago, and i really like the Fire playstyle overall, even if i know that frost is performing better ATM.
      However, everytime i see the logs of my Raid Leader at the end of the raid, i see that i'm in the lowest percentile for Fire Mages equipped as me in ILVL values. For that reason, i decided to start a post in the Forum: this situation is stressing me out during raid, and i don't know how to solve it.
      Here is the link to my armory, as well as to the last week fight (as well as an older one)
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/it-it/character/nemesis/swari
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/WxYcrVtp2F78HafN/
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/K6kpD3ACFnWyhQbM/
      The problems i know i currently have are;
      Not using Firestarter: i'll start using it in the next raid. From what i understood, i simply  play in the first 10% life of the boss as if i have Combustion on, and activate it at the end; Having a crappy combination of Legendaries (Kil'Jaeden and Pyrotext). My other alternatives ATM are Prydaz, Insigna and Soul. It is possible that just from the crappy Legendaries i result in a crappy DPS? Overall, comparing to my guildmates, i have a decent DPS, but i think that with my gear i should perform better, isn't it?
       
      Please let me know if you need anything else in order to give me advices
       
      Thanks in advance, see you around
