your kill order was G-R-G-R-B-R-B

your post states you think you should be doing more damage.

Learning to play is one such method.

edit: Posted Image

edit 2:

I just use 1000 intel flask.

I see that now when i look at the raid as a whole. doesn't show up for individual bosses. So you use flasks, just not pre-potting and potting.

If you're looking for a large dps gain, then you're asking the wrong questions Posted Image

That being said...You don't have a legendary meta and only 1 RPPM trinket so the way you are set up right now is perfectly fine. Moving stats around is at best going to change your dps by 2-3% with your current gear. Not 100% sure, but you could probably get close to that just by using two pots on every fight.

Looking over your logs there's still plenty of room for improvement. If you want advice for tweaking your playstyle let us know.

Edit: Forgot to address this part of your question.

Suggestions for reforge or any trinkets to replace?

Do you have other trinkets at your disposal? Volatile Talisman is kind of meh in my eyes and Wush is okay. If you have the chance to grab a Breath of the Hydra go for it and Unerring is a good alternative as well (my current destro trinks).

Breath of the Hydra is money for basically every warlock spec. Getting a lot of large intellect procs and knowing how to use them is the key to destro.

Make sure you're using Havoc on like CD on any fight you can.. this is key to raising your dps.. Knowing you can use having and get 3 shadow burns off in a row is ideal :) Enjoy!

To the above two posters, spamming Havoc'd shadowburns on mobs that are unimportant to the actual point of the fight is nothing but a waste of time. Padding your numbers is doing nothing for the group as a whole, and if your e-peen is more important than getting kills/gear, maybe you should re-evaluate. On Horridon, sure. Megaera? -_-

This, so much this. On Horridon, EXCELLENT use of mechanics. On Megaera, you're just strokin' your epeen. Just don't do that AND link meters. We call those people 'douchelocks.' On Megaera, the proper use of Havoc is to use Incinerate to generate higher embers to boost your single target Chaos Bolts. After bosses are on farm, feel free to manipulate anything you want.

Baseline tips:

  • Prepot and pot, when damage is needed and your cd´s are ready
  • Look, if you have to cast Curse of the Elements or someone else is automatically applying such an effect
  • know how and when to use either Doomguard or Infernal, Doomguard makes extra damage under 20% and profits of Bloodlust when active before BL is cast
  • Never cast CB´s with 3+ stacks of Backdraft, unless some heavy procs will fall off until you got rid of the stacks
  • Never cast Conflagrate with 4+ stacks of Backdraft, you will lose backdraft stacks, because they cap at 6, therefore this would hurt your mana generation
  • 100% uptime of Immolate, refresh with Fel Flame just if you have to move and don´t have Mannoroth´s Fury, else always with recasting Immolate
  • Watch timers, boss life and cd´s to pool Embers, it´s just useless to cast Chaosbolt if the boss is about to drop under 20%, where you can use SB or if the boss is about to disappear at a phase change
  • Look for Opportunities for Havoc, either for accelerated ember generation with Inflagrate or for shooting away add´s with SB.

And also for destro, there is one big tip i learned from watching sparkuggz´s videos: you can cast Rain of Fire on two areas so for example on primordius you don´t have to use Mannoroth´s Fury, 2 rain of fire will get you so much embers to either Fire and Brimestone away the adds or spam CBs into Primordius. To use this and also be able to cast something else, you should have a decent level of haste or else you´re going OOM( i have ca. 20%).

OT: destro is nice, but i want to try demo once i get Unerring Vision of Lei Shen^^

Cast Curse of the Elements regardless of who is providing similar debuff. If it's a Rogue or Hunter, they may die. Yours lasts for 5 minutes and requires one global. Make it standard procedure to have applied.

Doomguard does NOT benefit from Bloodlust in any way, shape, or form. He still only casts 17 Doombolts regardless of what buffs he has present. He does, however, scale with Intellect procs, so popping him at the beginning often overcompensates for the 20% buff you get with him in execute phase. You should NEVER be using an Infernal. Ever.

Do NOT use Fel Flame to refresh Immolate. With Pandemic, you have a 10 second window to land an Immolate anytime to not let it fall off and fully benefit from Pandemic. There is never an excuse to let it fall off or have to reapply it with Fel Flame.

@Zagam, thank you for clarification with Curse of Elements and Doomguard´s not existent benefit of BL, i mixed it up with priests shadow fiend,my fault :)

for the thing with fel flame, pandemic saves us dps-wise but i wanted to mention it and under normal circumstances i don´t cast it, too.

What Zagam is saying is that you should *never* cast it. the amount of mana it costs is detrimental to your dps, and you're better off getting the pandemic duration and enjoying more time casting incinerate and conflagrate, rather than being low on mana and having to cast Chaos Bolt only once/twice, further gimping your dps.

On H Horridon it's a great thing to do and isn't a epeen anything.. It's important to kill the adds fast. Of course you use it on appropriate targets... BUT there is no target you can soulburn 3x that isn't important so please refrain from thinking it's a cock strut comment. It's important for destro to use havoc whether it be for Embers or for a spike in damage with soul burns/cb's

Please re-read my comment. Everything I mentioned in terms of it being an epeen stroker is in reference to Megaera. I fully support it on Horridon by saying specifically "On Horridon, ECELLENT use of mechanics." Notice that the rest of the statement you quoted me on is about Megaera where if you are spending Embers on two heads (Shadowburn/Chaos Bolt), you are strokin' the epeen and nothing more.

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, PUBG, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.

      About Us:

      Our Raids:
      <Trust> maintains a progression-oriented 2-day semi-casual raiding team.

      Raid Schedule:
      Tuesday & Thursday: 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)
