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 would really appreciate some help :) thanks in advance !

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.

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 5/11 Mythic Antorus. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:15 PM until 12:15 AM Eastern. Currently, our main goal is to push Mythic progression & finish out the raid before next patch, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us, because we will not be doing Heroic or anything like that.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated. In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      As far as classes are concerned, at this time, we do not have ANY rogues, DPS warriors, havoc DH, or wind walkers.
      If you are interested, add me to battle tag and we will talk (violentravi#1826), I will accept mostly anyone who wants to be a bench or casual, but for raiding purposes, you must be able to provide logs.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Like any progress guild, we put an emphasis on performance and creating a roster that will succeed in even the toughest content, but we put just as much value on fostering a strong, respectful, and stable community where our raiders can feel at home. We feel this combination of ideals is the secret that has kept our guild both stable and successful.

      <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.
