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.

      <Pickle Palace> is a recently formed guild on Illidan, but is made up of veteran players who wanted to take a step back from semi-hardcore raiding. We are currently raiding Mythic Antorus (9/11), with our goal being to finish it out before the end of the expansion. Our community is actively playing outside of raid time, pushing M+ and hanging out on discord.

      We raid on a 2 day schedule. Our raid days are Tuesday and Wednesday 9-12 EST. And will be adding a 3rd raid day for BfA! (Thursday or Monday)

      We are currently recruiting,

      All Exceptional Ranged DPS
      &
      Shaman w/ offpsec heals

      Expectations
      Have a great attitude every night. Be prepared for every raid; this includes purchasing consumables and studying encounter strategies. We provide feast/codex/flasks other consumables are your responsibility Zero tolerance policy for criticizing others' performance. Officers will take care of it, worry about yourself and yourself only. Be critical of your performance and take time outside of raiding hours to analyze warcraftlogs for personal improvement. Have fun. We love playing with each other in a friendly, team-oriented, boss-crushing atmosphere -- and you should too! Must be able to tolerate adult language
      If you are interested in joining <Pickle Palace> please contact,

      Hi everyone. I just killed HC Varimathras and I was surprised by my low damage. There was not second time warp because we used the first one at 20% HP but I think I should get higher numbers. Can anyone tell me what did I do wrong? Was it really only in TW? I do not think so :/.
