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.

      SERVER: Illidan
      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time.
      CURRENT PROGRESSION: 8/8N, 5/8H
       
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING (340+ ilvl)
      Healer DPS ABOUT US
      Currently looking for a skilled and laid back Healer & DPS for Heroic and eventually Mythic Uldir.
      We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out. 
      Fun guild events are scheduled often!
      Overall, we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
      GOALS FOR BfA
      In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic. 
      This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.) 
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW
      Make sure to add me on Battle.net and fill out our app to join us. We look forward to speaking with you!

      Looking for a casually serious progression guild? Hordeland Security could be your new home! We started at launch, and have raided on Blackhand, Baelgun, and now Turalyon. 

      We currently raid on Tuesdays and Thursdays 7:00- 9:15 Central Time. We understand that no one has an unlimited amount of time to play. We raid with a goal oriented focus, to achieve AotC in current content and then progress into Mythic. We also have a few that pvp, a few more that push M+'s, and we've been known do a few mog/achievement runs.
      Interested? Drop us a line!

      Hi everyone,

      We are a guild that transferred from Alexstrasza to join the progression raiding scene as that server is very low population now. We are currently 8/8N and 4/8H uldir, and looking to move into heroics soon and mythic just after. 

      We do more than just raid, we love to do keys, transmog runs, and even some PvP. We have a large range of players from several walks of life and have a unique and fun atmosphere, we are friendly and love helping people. 

      We are looking for a few more members for our Sunday/Monday 5-8pm PST, and our tue/third 5-8pm PST. If anyone is interested in raid leading that will work too.

      We are primarily east coast based but have a plethora of players that are on at all times of day.

      Main needs for our raid team:
      ranged dps
      Healers
      Exceptional players

      Of course all players as welcome as we do other guild activities such as world PVP, keys, xmog and other social activities.

      So come join this very active guild and we hope to hear from you.

      If you would like more information please add my btag at Kaatra#5865.

      I look forward to hearing from all of you.
