Aloha,

I have been raiding with ye olde guildies, but alas my dps has been at the bottom of the pile which I expect with my ilvl as they are all much higher but i do feel like i should be doing more than what I am.

please take a look at the logs ( https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/LGQfTc47XwkdtYzj#fight=1&type=summary&source=16 ) and help me figure out where i am going wrong.

 

Thanks in advance!

Hey, 

I took a quick look at your logs. first of all i am not the best fire mage there is. But i noticed a few things.

Talents:

15: I think you should use pyromaniac on purely singel target encounters

30: Use shimmer pretty much always, really helps with movement.

90: Unstable magic is the best for single target encounters.

I also saw you have a lot of haste on your gear. your stat priority is:

1. Critical Strike;

2.Intellect;

3.Mastery;

4.Versatility.

5.Haste;

The last thing i saw is that u used scorch 7 times during the fight. try not move when you don't have to. using shimmer you can limit the time you need to spend moving. 

I hope i have been helpfull. I really thought that the "in depth look at fire mage" video from Preacher was verry helpfull.

Sorry for the long delay on the reply.  Been extremely busy.

I looked at a couple of your fights.  You are missing several crit conversions from Heating up to Hot Streak on your Fireball procs.  Quite a lot of them actually.

 

Other than that, your Combustion phase needs some work, need to ensure you aren't wasting your Fireblast getting into a hot streak before you use combustion.   You should be ON a hot streak and have 2 Fireblast, and at least 2 PF ready with flame on to pop ROP+Combustion.

 

You are not using potions, that I can see.  Deadly Graces, period.  Not using them, you're losing a lot of dps.

 

Your uptime is pretty low as well.  You need to be constantly casting.

      SCHEDULE UNTIL FIRST TIER*
      Below are our events the beginning weeks of BfA! All events start at 10pm CT.
      Week 1
      August 13th (Mon) - BfA Weekday Leveling Party! August 17th (Fri) - Leveling up in BfA Drinking Party August 19th (Sun) - Leveling up in BfA Non-Drinking Party Week 2

      Hey everyone,
      So, I think my problem is my gear as I have been trying to rack my brain on why my dps is not that great in raids. Some of it I admit is probably not sticking 100% to my rotation, but any help/suggestions would definitely be appreciated.
      You can find the analyzer for the most recent log here: https://wowanalyzer.com/report/4K3dCR86gfMv2Njt/2-LFR+Antoran+High+Command/Darkbriar
       
      Thanks in advance! 😎
