[FIRE] How can I improve my DPS further?

Hello there :)

Currently I'm playing firemage with 59 % crit (with 300 bufffood). I'm raiding as well and we are 6/7 nhc (we're not going for progress ;)). Depending on the fights I'm able to maintain between 180k and 220k dps. But from everyone I'm just hearing that this dps is way too low and I have to change something. So this is why I'm asking you ;)

I'm going to upload a dummy log, so you can see my complete rotation how I am going through it. This is the way I am doing it in raid as well, depending on mechanics and movement a bit different (maybe I can upload a Cenarius and Xavius Log tomorrow when were going to raid). So my question is: Is there a mistake in my rotation, am I doing it right? I know Im missing gems right now, but they are just way too expensive right now :)

I did a quick view onto your log, and im pretty sure its because ur use of the RoP.. The third time to cast it should be far before combustion goes off cd, its like 1 combustion, 3 RoP, 1 combustion, 3 RoP.. and try to do it when u have at least 1 phoenix and 1 fire blast so less time casting, more damage.

If you are pre-potting, then using a pot during the burn phase, or during your next big burn phase because hero was used at the start, and you are using ROP with Combustion correctly, and you are fishing for Pyros there isn't much else you can do.

 

I did some small tweaks to my priorities last week.  I was doing ROP wrong and I corrected that.  I now am easily pulling 280~320k dps sustain.

 

The info is in the guide, just make sure you're following it.

 

Pre-pot/precast pyro 4.5 seconds before pull.  Ramp up to an instant pyro, hold it and cast ROP then combustion.  Then go straight into your combustion burn.  Using FB and PF to keep your pyros stacking.  If you let your Pyretic Incantation fall off, you're losing a lot of dps.

 

Then go into you're regular Pyro fishing rotation.  Fireball to get a hotstreak, FB, cast another Fireball then immediately Pyro to proc another hotstreak/instant pyro.  You should be able to get 2~3 more ROP in before your Combustion is off CD, just ensure that you save ROP for Combustion alongside 2 PF, 2 FB, and Flame On.

 

I don't like using dummies for logs.  Go into LFR and upload those logs.  Dummies are fool proof and don't give you the information you really need.

So well I'm back again.. was pretty ill the last few weeks...

Thanks for all your tipps up to now! Well I think Ive read the guides like a million times, and im following it as best as i can. just prepotting is something im not doing right now since its not necessary for our raid.

So last sunday we were raiding and finally beating the last boss Xavius, so i can provide a log from this.

Another question I have, and what im really struggling with, is how to deal damage while moving.. I know i have scorch and such but how do you modify your rotation when its a movement intens fight?

Like I said above, follow the guide and use your ROP correctly and you'll be fine.  Pre-potting gives a substantial increase to DPS.

 

As far as moving with damage, you use ice flows.

      Hey everyone,
      So, I think my problem is my gear as I have been trying to rack my brain on why my dps is not that great in raids. Some of it I admit is probably not sticking 100% to my rotation, but any help/suggestions would definitely be appreciated.
      You can find the analyzer for the most recent log here: https://wowanalyzer.com/report/4K3dCR86gfMv2Njt/2-LFR+Antoran+High+Command/Darkbriar
       
      Thanks in advance! 😎

      SERVER: Illidan
      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time.
      PROGRESSION: 2/11M
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING*
      Tank All DPS (Healer offspec preferred but not required) Possibly accepting other roles! ABOUT US
      Now recruiting for BFA!
      Currently looking for skilled and laid back Tank & DPS for the upcoming expansion.
      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.) 
      SCHEDULE UNTIL BFA**
      Fridays currently mandatory for core raiders for a partial Heroic clear.
      Sundays reserved for non-mandatory misc WoW activities (M+, leveling alts for BFA etc.) or other non-WoW related events.
      If ilvl is high enough, you can join for Friday (950+) and Sunday on any character, not just the one you want to play in BFA.
                *The class you play in BFA can be different from what you play now; we will be flexible until the expansion hits.
                **Schedule subject to changes.
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW
      Make sure to add me on Battle.net and/or fill out our short 6 question app to join us. We look forward to speaking with you!
      Start the app here!

      Hi all,
      Im not sure where to post this but im hoping someone can help or at least point me in the right direction.
      TL;DR - My DPS is awful and i want to increase it
      I played fire & frost spec back in cata upto 85 and have recently got back into WoW again and finally realised what people talk about when they play "end game" i wish id known about raiding sooner!
      However, My DPS isnt great at all im eq 959 ilvl but my DPS comes out as low as 8-900 sometimes or i can hold a steady 1.1-1.2M. Simc comes out around 1.7M (obviously in a perfect world) but i still feel im doing something wrong.
      Ive watched videos, read forums and im sure my rotation is right. Im using Flask, Food and Runes and Pre-potting. I have some logs here of garothi.
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/XRqCaL6jFVpW9MnG#fight=5&type=summary&source=23&view=events
      and this is my Raider.io - https://raider.io/characters/eu/twisting-nether/Buksh
      Not sure if ive posted this in the right place OR if ive given enough info to help. but anything would be hugely appreciated.
