First of all - sorry for my probably bad english and thank you guys for this forum and the huge amount of useful information. Posted Image

Im playing warlock for a few month now. Before that i had a break for about a year and before that i played protection-paladin for about 5 years. So i guess im a bit a warlock newb. I tried to get the knowhow in a short time and did read pretty much every guide available in the internet. Lately i startet to learn simecraft but im not that good with it right now.

After finally getting the Unerring Vision of Lei Shen (sadly only the LFR version with ca. 120 sec cooldown, if it is right what im reading) and the Legendary Metagem i decided to go demonology all the way.

Sometimes is got really nice proccs at the start of the Lei Shen fight (about 350k DPS) with a modified (since i'm human and no engineer etc.) opener that

. On the other hand, i'm a cold noodle without proccs and i'm dropping really really behind. Yesterday (i tried affliction the first two trys but i got a bad feeling and switched back) we had a try where we could reach the second intermission but the boss killed a few people with this AOE since the damage was to low. I was at the end of the meters with about 110k DPS and you all know that questions after this.

I know that demonology really depends on the trinket proccs and the most time i only have one target with 100% crit doom rolling. Is it worth to change something? Did i do something really wrong with gearing/reforging etc. or is my DPS pretty normal. Maybe i should switch the specc or w/e.

Thank you guys for the help, i'm really depressd cause i was far behind before i got the trinket and my legendary metagem (all others had it cause i startet playing at a late point in the content) and now im bad again with all the hope i had with this two things.

I follow the guidelines from sparkuggz guides with the 8100 haste-breakpoints and then i put everything in mastery. Rotation is the suggested one on icy-veins guides and i have problems with capping hand of guldan at the last second and switching into metamorp (but not all the time). That is all i can say about my playstyle and i hope that will help you guys seeing things.

Doing my best to decipher your logs based on damage done by spell. Your DPS isn't going to be tied to your reforging. It will, however, be tied to your trinket procs. Seeing your guild amass wipes after 2-4 minutes repeatedly is going to make your opening DPS very unreliable as sometimes you'll get procs, sometimes you won't. The best way to avoid a lack of a proc is to not release and be res'd by someone running back. This will prevent you from switching zones which resets the internal timer on your trinket for a increased proc rates.

Lei Shen is NOT a DPS race...at least not anymore with the high item levels people are running around with. Your guild must work harder to avoid dying to things, not boosting your DPS. Your logs don't indicate DPS issues at all. They indicate your team not spreading out for Diffusion and adding a ton of adds. In your few attempts where you reached P3, it looks like panic sunk in and you all had many Diffusion adds spawn due to not spreading out. P1 Lei Shen is boring, dull, and annoying to repeat. There's nothing to watch out for. P2 Lei Shen is all about having 3 people outside of melee range to control Ball Lightning spawns and avoiding Lightning Whip. This phase is also trivial. P3 Lei Shen is ALL about keeping Diffusion in check while keeping Thunderstruck damage minimized by utilizing high movement players to force the spawn far from the group. If you control Diffusion adds and keep Ball Lightning in check, P3 is super easy. Each person is responsible for not spawning more than 1 Diffusion add and making sure you don't spawn 8+ Ball Lightnings. If each team can handle the transition and not die to stupid things like not stacking for Static Shock or falling off because of Helm of Command, then you'll be fine.

Also, I don't see Timewarp anywhere on your 7+ minute attempts. I'm thinking you made it to P3, but elected not to Timewarp? You should be Timewarping AS SOON as you enter P3 because your DPS CDs should be up as well as having a bit of time to maximize DPS. Some classes are going to have a difficult time lining all their procs up while having to deal with the winds and Thunderstruck.

TL;DR: Your damage is fine. Your raid team needs to work on surviving. Lei Shen is a survival fight, not a DPS race.

      Strangely Ironic is guild of friends and family that has been around the block a couple times. We are trying to recruit active players to form a raid team. Due to RL and the age of the game our ranks have dwindled. We are a casual guild looking to raid two nights a week from 9pm EST to 11pm EST; days of the week will change as I work shift work. If you want to join and don't want to raid we are still accepting all applicants as we want to foster an active community.
      No hot-heads please, as we are a guild who recognizes that this is just a game and we are all here to have fun and relax.
      If you are interested add reddfoxx#1496 or head to strangelyironic.enjin.com to fill out an application.

      We're a guild looking for people who want to have a great time, hang out with each other, laugh and have fun while killing stuff in raids! 

      Guild Name: RaidCat
      Faction: Alliance
      Realm (EU): Silvermoon
      Realm Type: PVE
      Realm Timezone: CEST
      Progression: 8/11 HC Antorus
      Raid Times: 19:30st - 22:00st
      Raid Schedule: Friday and Monday (additional raids on Wednesday for alts, mythic etc)
      Openings: Range DPS (help us knock those melee off the top of the meters!)

      We raid twice a week in the evenings with optional extra runs appearing as requested. 
      Currently we also raid on Wednesdays (normal) to help gear up mains and alts.
      As our raid roster increases and  heroic progress continues Wednesday evening will likely become a mythic progression night. However mythic is not our end goal or focus, but rather something we try to make extra time for. Social members also welcome!

      Looking for: Range DPS (warlock, mage, hunter, shadow priest, hunter) Other applications considered.

      We do everything from Transmog runs, PVP, Mythic+ and whatever else you can think of, with our main focus on raiding.

      We are aiming for a relaxed yet skilled raiding environment where people can fill in for each other, not having to worry about always attending since people can fill in for you, focusing on having fun and improving ourselves with each kill.

      We do care about people following tactics and knowing what they're doing (so do your homework or ask for help!) so we may actually get some stuff done as well, that's why we're looking mainly for experienced raiders that want a more flexible environment (if you are new to raiding you are still welcome)

      We use Discord and you are welcome to join and hang out before deciding to move over.

      Hello my Demonhunter Fellows! :)
      I´m one of those Demon Hunter Players, that is still playing with T20 Set. But i look forward to switch to my T21 "sweet" Demonic Build soon.
      So here´s my question: Theres pretty much an even opinion pool of people saying i should play with Raddon's Cascading Eyes + Anger of the Half-Giants and people saying Delusions of Grandeur + Anger of the Half-Giants ... I think both have a good effect with the new Demonic Build but which is better? Due to the fact, that these are 2 Set piece slots it would be nice to know which is BiS.

      Hello everyone,
       
      i changed class from Priest a few weeks ago, and i really like the Fire playstyle overall, even if i know that frost is performing better ATM.
      However, everytime i see the logs of my Raid Leader at the end of the raid, i see that i'm in the lowest percentile for Fire Mages equipped as me in ILVL values. For that reason, i decided to start a post in the Forum: this situation is stressing me out during raid, and i don't know how to solve it.
      Here is the link to my armory, as well as to the last week fight (as well as an older one)
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/it-it/character/nemesis/swari
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/WxYcrVtp2F78HafN/
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/K6kpD3ACFnWyhQbM/
      The problems i know i currently have are;
      Not using Firestarter: i'll start using it in the next raid. From what i understood, i simply  play in the first 10% life of the boss as if i have Combustion on, and activate it at the end; Having a crappy combination of Legendaries (Kil'Jaeden and Pyrotext). My other alternatives ATM are Prydaz, Insigna and Soul. It is possible that just from the crappy Legendaries i result in a crappy DPS? Overall, comparing to my guildmates, i have a decent DPS, but i think that with my gear i should perform better, isn't it?
       
      Please let me know if you need anything else in order to give me advices
       
      Thanks in advance, see you around
