My ilvl 873, I do about 300k overall in EN normal/heroic and I'm wondering if that is the right amount dps for shadow priest and this ilvl. I usually do rather low dps on Ursoc and Nythendra, not entirely sure why but I still do above 200k.
Here is my character if that helps. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/frostmourne/Lilaina/simple
I know Void Torrent is my highest priority. But I feel like using first VB to make sure my dots get refreshed is more important.
Is it more important to max/min my insanity decay (Use VoiT instantly) or make sure my DOT uptime is maximized?
Hi everyone! Scyusia-Anachronos, spriesting since end WotLK.
So I've been having difficulties trying to determine just how to change my rotation/priorities list on some BRF bosses.
The fight I'd like help the most on is Operator Tho'gar.
Tonight's kill showed that I'm underperforming, and I'd like to know what I could do to change that.
Here's a log link to the kill:
I have since changed my HC Slaughterhouse Spaulders to HC Tierset ones, as indicated on my armory:
If you take a close look at the logs (tonight was a particularly frustrating night due to, well, stupid deaths) you'll notice I even tried out going with SoD and a CoPlite build/rota in the beginning few tries, just for the sake of experimentation.
My general dotweave is:
MB > MS x 3 until 5 shadow orbs > SW:P > VT > DP > MB > MFI (iffy on the GCDs and clipping, never can manage it properly, too much haste?) > DP > MB > MFI (till just after MB off cd/just before DoTs run out) > repeat.
If I have GCDs to correct, it'll be filled by a PW:S or similar.
Halo use for Tho'gar was timed for add waves (at least that shows, thankfully).
According to logs, I have performed so far under par (23rd percentile) that I am actually offended. (Although it may be possible that other priests were simple multidotting that fight - I simply dropped halos on CD and Mind seared at 6+ mobs, else single target dotweave, but I am at a loss to see how auspicious spirits is better here.)
One part where I acknowledge I failed is keeping up DoTs running on Tho'gar throughout (not possible during split phase, of course, but otherwise as well), though purely because it detracted me from being able to pull off enough DPS on adds. (GCDs limiting and all that).
Apart from WA to help me see the duration of Insanity (the buff) and the DoT timers, I don't run anything like HaloPro - generally a good judge of that goldilocks zone. I run the normal Blizz UI, like it a lot.
I would sincerely appreciate some (helpful) criticism. I have been tearing my hair out during Highmaul trying to gear/chant properly, shelling out lots of cash basically changing builds, and I would rather not go through that again this raid.
If you have any suggestions to my Dotweave I'd love to be able to try those out as well. Having said that, I was previously running a dotweave rotation that did MB > MS x 3 until 4 shadow orbs, when I'd begin MS then dotting. It didn't perform compared to the new one I'm using, but any help is welcome.
Thanks everyone for taking the time to help me with this.
Hello all! I am looking for some help for one of my raiders. Her DPS seems a bit lower for her ilvl. Unfortunately, with the new changes to SPriest, I am unable to provide the help that she deserves. I'm looking for any advice and was wondering if anybody could take a look at our logs and potentially analyze them. Any assistance with this would be greatly appreciated:
The SPriest in Question is Sassenachh
So we're 10 days into this and folks have had some time to get gear and do some testing on the Tier 7 Talents and secondary stat weights.
I'm curious how others are finding the talents, what secondary stats they're stacking with which talent and "how it feels" and some DPS numbers (Skada/Recount) on single target and multiple target fights.
I personally have (for now) settled on CoP and have been stacking Mastery and Multistrike as much as is possible at this point, and the single target numbers are steady around 16k DPS, at this time. Multiple target fights, I find my DPS VERY weak compared to other classes and have been very disappointed with Mind Sear, and think it feels "broken", compared to what it used to be.
Overall, I'm a little disenchanted with what I'm seeing and wanted to get a sense for what others are experiencing.
