7 posts in this topic

Hi! I play Balance druid as my main class, but my dps is pretty pathetic. My current ilvl is 511 but i can do max 60k dps. I really need some help and tips to improve my dps.

I leave link to my armory, because i might want help to gem and enchant my gear ^_^

Hello there mate! 60k DPS as a 511 druid is... really low, I am able to reach it on my 470 ilvl druid if played correctly :X What I noticed is that you have too little crit(only 17,39% for 511 ilvl is quite bad) and you aren't hit capped. You have too many items with wrong reforging or no reforging at all and 1 gem with haste/int. Not to mention your trinkets are horrid for PvE as a balance druid. I'd suggest going to Mr.Robot or downloading ReforgeLite to help you with your reforging and you really need to replace dem trinkets! Also, mind I ask what your rotation is? Following the one here you should easily reach high amounts of dps once you're hit capped/reforged. Also, I know MANY people tell me this is wrong(because you won't be stationary most of the time/not all buffs) but practice on a Raiding Dummy so you can grasp the rotation better. Remember, there is always room for improvement.

But yeah, do as I have said and you will start wrecking the DPS meters after you've grasped the basics.

Ello there. 60k is low for where you are at and their are a few simple thigns you can do that i see to help you get it up a bit higher. Number one reforging your gear in the right way will help you emensly. Your hit cap is under what it needs to be, and it needs to come up to 15%. Also you have a lot into mastery and you should move some of that crit which will help your dots have harder ticks. i also suggest going to askmrrobot and seeing how he simulates your gear and i also suggest if the little reforging advice, gem changes, and trinket changes don't work as much as you want it to and you're not seeing the numbers you want then watching a couple videos on your class might help and if yo choose that route i suggest preachgaming if you are a more visual person rather than reading Posted Image! i hope this helps and goodluck to you out there man!

There are a lot of issues with your gear. Equip a helm with a meta gem slot, the + Critical Effect bonus is huge. Get the other Shado-Pan Assault trinket (the one you have on is for a healer), and put on a PvE DPS trinket in the other slot. The Relic of Yu-Lon trinket from the Darkmoon Faire is pretty damn good, or you can spam Elder Coins/run pugs to get the trinket off Elegon.

Get your Jewelcrafting up to 550 so you can equip some Serpent's Eyes for a stat boost.

Cloak: Intellect

Chest: Glorious Stats

Bracers: Intellect

Legs: Greater Pearlescent Spellthread

Feet: Pandaren's Step

Yellow sockets: Crit only

Blue sockets: Spirit + Crit is OK

Red sockets: Int + Crit

I loaded your profile into Ask Mr. Robot. Use the PvE Default Build for specifics on reforging. This will help you reach hit cap, haste soft cap, and maximize your amount of Crit all at the same time.

piggybacking this thread for a question on Balance DPS.

When it comes to multi-DoTing for damage and starsurge procs;

Should I DoT both moonfire and starfire on all targets?

How many targets is the max?

How many targets until I should just use hurricane?

Thanks for help!

I believe the hurricane point is around 8 or 9. (without dotting)

As for mulitdotting, first get your eclipsed dots going, then the non-eclipsed dots. So don't do sunfire>moonfire -change target- sunfire>moonfire etc etc.

But rather sunfire > change target > sunfire > change target. I usually end up SS spamming untill leaving the eclipse at least. After you left eclipse, it doesn't matter much which dot you apply.

(Actually if you're on your way to solar, applying moonfire is still superior, since you'll refresh solar in solar eclipse. Overriding any possible time left)

Also keep in mind about the things you read about dotting, mind that the guides will assume your dot runs the full duration. Don't dot targets with low hp in raids. They would die too quickly for dots to become effective.

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, PUBG, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletag: Vims#21684

      Hello everyone,
      I want to ask for any tips on my logs, since I think I'm doing something wrong with my resto druid.
      I have good gear (currently 958 ilvl) but I see other druids with similar or less gear do way higher HPS than me on the logs. I think I should be doing more than 900/1k hps, but rarely go above 700 in many fights.
      Here are a couple of logs of Antorus hc:
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/cHZLXF1t8J7YMwBT
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/zGB27L8KYp4HXJZQ
      I searched the logs and I think one of my main problems for the lack of healing is the rejuvenations. Other druids do far more healing with same or less rejuvs, since my average casts is around 450k (and other druids go up to 750 or even 1000).
      I don't know if it's a problem with timing or overhealing (other healers snipping me), but I want to know other opinions.
      Thanks a lot for your help.
