Further improvements?

7 posts in this topic

Hey everyone,

I try to keep my mage up to date and read on forums/discord and stuff, but I don't really feel like I am dealing the DMG that I should deal with 865.

Maybe some of you Mythic-Raider pros or something, could have a look at my logs to say if I am doing alright or what to improve?

HC-Logs 6/7 https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/4KnjvG9dwtX7PY62

I am using Potion of Prolonged Power, even though I know that Deadly Grace is still better.

Armory is in the signature.

 

Thanks in advance :)

Lily, you're at what, 55% crit fully buffed?

 

One thing of note, Deadly Graces is just too good not to use.  I know you said you know this but if you want to do better DPS, consider in most fights Deadly Graces will range between 5 and 9% of your total damage, which could be a ton of damage.

 

From what I can see, you have 2 slight issues, and that's it.  The rest comes with better gear honestly.

You failed to convert 6 of your heating ups from a pyroblast into a new hotstreak.  You had 21/27 procs. 

 

The other thing I noticed is every, at least on Cenarius, time you burned Combustion you were only getting 5 Pyros in.  You should idealy be getting 7 pyros out during that phase.  It's hard but doable.  I pretty much  maintain 6 of them but at least one burn I get to 7, depends on the stupid server lag at the time.

 

IMO, those Legendary boots are wasted.  I would drop them for a good pair of Mythic+ or Heroic boots. You probably want the boots off of Heroic (if you're not on Mythic yet) Ursoc, http://www.wowhead.com/item=139195/crimson-wool-lined-slippers&bonus=1807

You can also grab the normal versions, the boots from Huntsman in Karazhan, or heroic Cenarius.  They'll push you towards 58% crit, which doesn't sound like much but goes far in the way of easily procing heating up.

You've got the 375 crit food, you've got the flask.  No Augment Rune, and no Deadly Graces.

 

Honestly, your DPS seems fine, just need to fine tune things slightly.  Work on making sure every time you proc a heating up it turns into a hotstreak.  Don't miss any.  So far the only ones you missed were pyroblast procing it and not turning it into a hot streak.  Work on your Combustion phase some, try to get out at least 1 more pyro during the phase.  I see you are using PF to get into your rotation, I would wait until you are already in a hot streak to ROP+Combustion.  I am spiking 750k+ on my Combustion phases.  Granted, my guild is only in Normals, I wasn't logging for the Heroic clear I did with my brother's guild so I can't truly compare my dps to yours.

 

Again, this is different because different fights, albeit slightly.  I really need to get the logs from my brother for that heroic clear, but you can look and compare to see what I am doing vs what you are doing, switch to time table and look.

 

Your  Elerethe Renferal fight was one of your better fights so I choose that fight to compare.

Yours https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/4KnjvG9dwtX7PY62#type=summary&fight=28&source=7

Mine https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/9c8BNZFTaLCAXRwf#type=summary&fight=13&source=9

 

Now, I'm a bad mage, don't be a bad mage like me and use Scorch so much lol.  You use Ice Floes properly, I sometimes totally forget it exists.  I could probably have done better had I remembered to use the damn thing.

 

Here's a nice website to check simple stats on what you're doing and where you're missing procs.  It's not fool proof and not all classes are supported but it's pretty cool and shows some good stuff.

http://www.checkmywow.com/reports/4KnjvG9dwtX7PY62/96021040/37?tab=basic

 

Hope that helps some!

 

TLDR:

Convert more Pyro Heating Up to Hot Streak, you're missing some of them.

Get some more Crit.  Drop those legendary boots in favor of Heroic Ursoc boots.

Use Deadly Graces.

Get at least 1 more pyro out of Combustion phase, you're only at 5.

Message me and I will send you my info to add me to battletag if you have any questions.

Hey Thazi,
firstly thanks for this really long and specific answer you gave me :)

I switches my leg-boots to 875 boots from Cenarius to get more crit. I always knew that they are the worst leg to get for firemages, due to the stats, but the INT-upgrade was not easy to beat with a lower item^^
Now I got another 2% Crit and fully buffed I am at 61% :)
I am pandaren and use the 375 crit-food. Is Fishbrul Special better for me?

 

I will keep my mind to converting more Heating Ups into Pyros! On Cenarius I stopped casting cause of the reflection of the boss. But don't really know if that's what blocked 6-7 Pyros.

 

So, thanks again for your work I appreciate it :) And I will keep eyes open for more Pyros!

The 375 crit food is your best bet.  Even as a Pandaren.  You're at 61% now, thats awesome. 

 

Yeah, the reflect can be an issue, but shouldn't be a major issue.  When I did it on Heroic Tuesday I think I had to hold off on only 2 or 3. 

The key is not to throw the pyro out, you had heating up but didnt convert them to hot streaks.  Throw a blast out and get the hot streak, with your ice shield it should negate the damage coming back from the reflect if any happens.

 

Hope it helps, let me know if your dps increases!

 

EDIT:

 

Dealing with his reflection ability shouldn't be a huge issue in Heroic mode.  I'll be honest, as long as you keep your ice shield up, you should be okay.  Try to not hit him with instant cast pyros when it's up, but fireblast won't kill you.  Convert away. 

It also helps me that I have the Legendary chest, so I can get an extra bubble with blink.  But even still, a fireblast won't kill you lol.

Yep, figured this out as well. Fishbrul doesn't double :/

Sometimes I don't have a blast up, but I will definatly keep trying to improve this.

As an early update:

I finally killed Xavius on heroic this evening with my guild and forgot to start the logs after a relog... So I only got 8 wipes instead of ~20 wipes and a kill. But at least on Xavius, my DMG felt way better with these few changes I had recently and keeping in mind to get more Pyros in Comb + more Pyros from Heating-Up :)

Good news!

 

How many pyros were you able to get off during Combustion this time?

On first burst I always fitted 6 in Comb. Some pulls I got like 3 Pyromaniac-Proccs... On others it felt like none in 6Mins.

Infight I haven't managed to save all 3 PFs intime. But anyways, my damage (for now just on Xavius) felt much better! :)

      Hello everyone
      My guild and I raided EN last sunday and cleared normal mode easy enough and because we still had time, we started a heroic run aswell. For HC, I started a log that includes the boss kills Nythendra, Il'gynoth and Dragons of Nightmare.
      I am able to extract quite a bit of information for healers and DDs, but it seems that I don't really know what to look for, when trying to determine MY performance as a Blood DK (Yovana). I'm sure the information is there, but when it comes to Tanks in general, I'm struggling a little bit.
      In general, I think I'm doing ok because I don't get complaints from the healers and I don't really die, but if someone could point out obvious mistakes or inefficiencies, that would be very helpful.
      What catches my eye is the rather high amount of overheal of DS with 40%. I know that this is not really good, but then again, if I'm not taking any substantial amount of dmg, I'm not gonna sit on my runes and instead deal dmg with DS. So that explains the overheal a bit.
      Note that we had to top off our group with random players (1 random healer and several random DDs).

      Thank you all for any help in this matter and have a nice day

      Hello all,
      This is my first post in this area of the forum and I was wondering if someone can help me.
      I've recently started logging my encounters - starting with my guilds ToV HC run.
      While I'm always usually in the top 2-5 people on the DPS meter during raids, the log I took for the ToV HC run show me to be in the lower percentiles for that fight for my gear level (879 equipped, 880 bagged). I'd appreciate it if someone could enlighten me and let me know if there is something wrong in my rotation? Anything is appreciated, I'd like to maximise what I can if there's more I can eek out of my spec!
      Log: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/4p1dqz73WD86jnRL/#type=damage-done&source=5 (it's a live log so it'll be constantly updating while this run is going)
      Log: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/68rytKvmMxH7RTkc#fight=17 (for some other information - here is my Kara clear for the week (with NB))
      Armory link: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/darkspear/Eaglie/simple
      If any more information is required please let me know!
      Thanks guys!

      Hey guys,  first time posting up some healing logs.
      I got into Legion a few weeks ago, and just did a normal emerald nightmare run, had some great dps in the group, but was hoping some of the resto druids here could give me a bit of feedback on my healing?
      Hopefully this links  to all of the bosses, Xavius was my best one.

      i am currently in a heroic raiding guild. 7/7 h EN, and 2/3 h ToV. i am also currently 873 item level with a BIS legendary ring.I have been told, and have felt that on multiple occasions i am severely under performing compared to my other guild m8s.I thought it was just my artifact level. i got my 36th trait, and my dps has skyrocketed! alas it is still not enough. i'm looking for anyone who can help me figure out what i'm doing wrong.Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Hi All
      Thank you upfront for the support. It has helped me a lot reading other people's post too. I need some help with my WW DPS please.

      I have also been on the Walking the Wind website and used that as a supplement. Rotation: FSP Kick in, TP > TOD > SEF > RSK > EE + FoF > SotWL > WDP > TP > RSK (not sure after this but probably TP > BK > TP > FoF to capitalize on the second FoF while SEF is still up from Drinking Horn).
      I've started to focus on making sure that I have chi available soon as FoF or RSK or SotWL comes off CD. In the past I wasn't watching and would be starved for Chi at the last second and have to TP which is a DPS loss. But I'm still not sure why I am underperforming so much. Also please let me know what I am doing right and should keep doing. 
      Any help will be appreciated. Thank you and have a great Christmas!
