Hello together,

I just came back to playing after a huge break. Basically everyone told me not to play affliction warlock in legion, so I did anyways hehe =(

Ofc I am in a very weak spot now, thank god I have a guild who I can raid with anyways.

My main issue now is: regardless of the weak affliction-specc. Simulation-.-craft.org tells me I can reach 230k DPS. Is this buffed (flask,food etc) because there is no way I can reach this. I can reach like 150k (no buffood,flask etc).

edit: btw I'm not letting dots run out; my gear has the right stats etc 

Second issue: No matter what talents I choose -> the outcame is only a minor difference. I am struggling with the use of contagion and soul effigy (here I don't know which dots i keep going - 35% dmg / global cooldown effectiveness?) because of the much RNG I get (shard generation + soulproccs of artifact).

It feels smoother to just go for absolute corruption and soul conduit because I can just use shards+souls together without hoping for frequent proccs of both simultaniously.

Glad I take all advice you can give me.

+ I just hope for another big patch of course. But I guess none is coming before few weeks of raiding. 

Sincere regards a PvE-newcomer/comeback amateur hehe :(

Depending on the Talent row, the difference can range from minor to extremely huge. For pure single target the most important talent is using Siphon Lifea and Soul Effigy, the other are close in a 1-2% margin.

Despite that, there are are many factors to consider why your dps are not the 230k affliction can reach. Compare the gear you wear with the gear on the Simulationcraft site that was used for the simulation.

There are stats that are massively stronger than others and the Sim is equipped with the best possible gear at the given Item level. Also, Simulations include using flasks, bufffood and potions.

My guesses are, you don't wear Best in Slot gear, you have not picked the same Artifact Traits (or your Weapon is underleveled / weaker Relics) and you don't execute the the APL correctly. Even if you do your rotation properly, the former 2 have a great effect on your actual output.

Last but not least, there is already a Help my DPS Thread, which you can consult for further help. There is also a rule -

DO NOT ask why your DPS is low and provide nothing for us to analyse it with

You provide no information here to analyse. I advise you to learn to read the Simulationcraft Output properly, then you can exactly see the differences between the character that was used for the simulation and the character you play. There are many sources out there that can help you with that.

//Edit:

Saying that your gear has the right stats and you don't do rotation mistakes is no valid information. Post your armory and your skada damage breakdown. Also, do Normalized fights (e.g. dealing 10 Million damage or 5 Minute Fights) so that there is a set set of parameters for the fight. In short fights you are unlikely to get to your max dps as Affliction has a rampup time.

Not dropping buffs is not the only reason to loose damage, clipping buffs is so too (reneweing too early), which costs you multiple GCDS over a fight, greatly affecting your dps.

There are 3 Sources of Errors: Gear, Rotation, Talents (inkluding Artifact traits). So either your gear is incorrect, you have the incorrect talents and traits or you are playing wrong. So it is easy to say that there is a lie within your statement.

Hi this is helping already. I took part of the new raid yesterday and was #4 on singletarget encounters behind dhs and hunter. I try to show you logs asap.

 

One question I have which irritates me. If I take soul effigy what t1 t2 talents do I pick, because if I stay with my t1 t2 talents or choose the other viable option I only achieve a minimal change in DPS which feels like not worth it for me.

Or am I dotting wrong? I mean I should put all my three dots on soul effigy right?

 

Sincere regards.

If you want help choosing talents for each boss, I'd recommend looking at this:

https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/10#class=Warlock&spec=Affliction

This shows the top affliction players on each fight, as well as the most popular talents chosen for each.

      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.
