Hello fellas and Shadow Priest friends!

 

I got a semi-big problem and I hope that some of you guys could help me. I think my DPS is too low for my GS and I am clueless what I could do different to have more damage done! I mean I don't think myself a total noob and I am better than the most Shadows I see when I go dungeons or raid but I know I could do more ...

 

Here is my gear (which btw is trangsmogged pretty stilishly :p)

Here are the logs of yesterday - Monday, 11.14.2016

Don't look at Ursoc or the Nightmare Dragons ... I died too early and I was derp :s

I think a good damage boss for Shadow Priests is Elerethe, as you can use your S2M as soon as you land on the second platform yet I only have 315k. An other example is Odyn with 280k. I mean okay, we tried him the first time and wiped once but he is not really complicated and I got a good hang on him and still I wonder how some Shadow Priests have over 400k DPS fighting Odyn. I know I only have one Legendary and it's not very good but luck's not on my side I guess. 

 

Any hints what I do better to be THE DPS monster :D, or atleast have more DPS?

 

Have a nice everyone and I want to thank you in advance for all your helpful tips!

For starters, I would switch your enchants from haste to crit and gem for crit and if possible switch out that int haste trinket for an int crit trinket. I wouldn't recommend losing any of your haste, but crit is pretty important for your spec. You have void bolts and mind blasts that are some of your big nuke spells and they benefit greatly from more crit. Your dps isn't that bad as it stands. Apart from learning how to use surrender to madness and trying to practice best movement strategies, like your legendary to reduce dps and hoping for rng to line up with cool downs such as movement and cooldowns. You can always work on movement and void bolts. I know that is a high movement fight. If possible, you can stay insane for longer via running with dispersion if you feel you might not need it right away and refresh dots if you can with void bolt on exit. This is really only if you are running and you are in void form and you wish to maximize a little more. Otherwise it's impractical to disperse to extend dots, unless you are preserving insanity while on the move and can't void bolt intermittently.

Sorry for the late response. It seems you know how to play well during Surrender to Madness. Almost 100 stacks is good, but you need to adjust a few things to get the third Void Torrent. 

Based on your Elerethe kill i see you delayed the first Void Torrent. That could be the factor to not reach the third one. Watch these videos from Excel Priest it could help you to adjust the few missing details.

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting range DPS & Tank. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 7/11 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.  If you cannot get ahold of me in game, I work nights, please shoot me an email, I check it at work often and I can get ahold of other officers via text/discord if it's urgent! violentnacho@gmail.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      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.
