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.

      SERVER: Illidan
      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time.
      CURRENT PROGRESSION: 8/8N, 5/8H
       
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING (340+ ilvl)
      Healer DPS ABOUT US
      Currently looking for a skilled and laid back Healer & DPS for Heroic and eventually Mythic Uldir.
      We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out. 
      Fun guild events are scheduled often!
      Overall, we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
      GOALS FOR BfA
      In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic. 
      This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.) 
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW
      Make sure to add me on Battle.net and fill out our app to join us. We look forward to speaking with you!
      Start the app here!

      Looking for a casually serious progression guild? Hordeland Security could be your new home! We started at launch, and have raided on Blackhand, Baelgun, and now Turalyon. 

      We currently raid on Tuesdays and Thursdays 7:00- 9:15 Central Time. We understand that no one has an unlimited amount of time to play. We raid with a goal oriented focus, to achieve AotC in current content and then progress into Mythic. We also have a few that pvp, a few more that push M+'s, and we've been known do a few mog/achievement runs.
      Interested? Drop us a line!

      Hi everyone,

      We are a guild that transferred from Alexstrasza to join the progression raiding scene as that server is very low population now. We are currently 8/8N and 4/8H uldir, and looking to move into heroics soon and mythic just after. 

      We do more than just raid, we love to do keys, transmog runs, and even some PvP. We have a large range of players from several walks of life and have a unique and fun atmosphere, we are friendly and love helping people. 

      We are looking for a few more members for our Sunday/Monday 5-8pm PST, and our tue/third 5-8pm PST. If anyone is interested in raid leading that will work too.

      We are primarily east coast based but have a plethora of players that are on at all times of day.

      Main needs for our raid team:
      ranged dps
      Healers
      Exceptional players

      Of course all players as welcome as we do other guild activities such as world PVP, keys, xmog and other social activities.

      So come join this very active guild and we hope to hear from you.

      If you would like more information please add my btag at Kaatra#5865.

      I look forward to hearing from all of you.
