WW Dps talk - evaluate my rotation

8 posts in this topic

Hey guys & gals,

I would like to compare a bit of numbers between us windwalkers, just to see a bit where I am on the map. I know target dummy dps is "only target dummy", and doesn't reflect live/raid dps, but seeing we still have to wait another week for the first combat logs to be published, I'd like to prepare a bit before that.

 

I'm pulling 200k solo-dps on raid target dummy with ilvl 844 gear. My focus isn't gear optimization for time being, but my rotation and if im doing something wrong / could do something way better. That's the reason I'm here, and I even made a 6-min long rotation video for you guys to evaluate!

Please post in comments what you guys are pulling, and I would love to hear some constructive criticism in case you find faults in my fighting.

You need to use power strikes your overall flow of chi to energy will improve instead of having to deal with your brew, also if you watch your video unless your restarting your burst period which is every 2 minutes you shouldnt need the brew, watching your dps graph you can see that when you use brew its just making your damage plummet anyway until you get back into filler rotation.

The cooldown line is called CoolLine (https://mods.curse.com/addons/wow/coolline-cooldowns)

The "last-skil-used" is TrufiGCD (http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/trufigcd)

 

As for Power Strike vs Energizing Elixir, i prefer the elixir due to "RNG" (15sec timer) on the Power Strike 3-chi gain. I also find it better for burst /add phases. As for me going over capped while popping the elixir, thats just how it works, you will ALWAYS overcap on either resource when using it. Im still a bit confused about "when you use your brew your dps plummets, until you get to your filler rotation", cause my filler (TP, BK and even Chi Wave) doesnt even deal close to the numbers my cooldown based skills do.

Generally easier to look at a log for some of the slightly less noticeable things, but it looks good in general.

I'm very much on the side of Power Strikes, since I always feel EE is underused. It's one of those skills that, in order to get the perfect use of it, you need to have the next 4 moves planned out to know when the right time is. If you prefer EE, it doesn't look like it is exactly holding you back.

Not quite sure what was meant with the DPS plummeting during brew.

As both I and Illidahn have said, a proper analysis would be easier with a log. If you'd still like one, just post a log in this thread or a new one and we'll take a look.

      I came to Icy Veins to setup my Elemental Shaman only to find your Talent setup does not match what is offered in the game presently.  Below I have listed what I see in my current in-game talent setup and bolded those items that do not match your setup at all.
      Current in-game Talents listed:                                                   Your Listing:                      
      15 Exposed Elements Echo of the Elements Elemental Blast               Earthen Rage 30 Aftershock Master of Elements Totem Mastery       Call the Thunder 45 Spirit Wolf Earth Shield Static Charge         60 High Voltage Storm Elemental Liquid Magma Totem       Master of the Elements 75 Nature's Guardian Ancestral Guidance Wind Rush Totem         90 Earthen Rage Primal Elementalist Icefury       Surge of Power 100 Unlimited Power Stormkeeper Ascendance         I thought someone here should know about these differences because it appears there has been no update recently to your setup.   I know that I personally would appreciate an update so that I can adjust my in-game setup to work better.

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which semi-recently transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some shit.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are in need of any competent DPS, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.
