Arcane mage help - low DPS?

Recommended Posts

(Sorry if this isn't the place for this post, I'm new to these forums. D;)

So, I'm having an issue keeping my DPS up. I know I have some personal issues to worry about- keeping my arcane familiar (lovingly named Jeremy) out at all times, remembering to use Supernova at the right time, to name what I can think of off the top of my head. But even after switching some talents and gear around, and boosting my DPS by around 80k, I'm still only around 260k. So any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just had a really short look at the Guarm Replay and your gear. Since that kill you got the legendary legs (gratz to that!) and improved your gear in general.

I am not an arcane mage pro, but I am getting into it at the moment as well. For what I can say is, that you should really use RoP over IF! Your burst will be much better. Moreover you're not using any potion (prolonged power < deadly grace).

Your rotation in general looks okay, but you're moving very much. Get used to the bosses to improve that, that will help you not to lose your quickening stacks that easy!

Last hint I give you is, that you really, really should simcraft yourself to see which stats are the best for you. This is mandatory, cause nearly every gearpiece you get will change the stat-priority! You just can't say "stack mastery"! :)


Good luck with your DPS! :)

      <Trust> may be what you're looking for if you enjoy killing internet dragons with a group of like minded players! Currently we are 8/9 Heroic, soon to be stepping into Mythic ToS. We are recruiting to finish rounding out our raid team. <Trust> is located on the [US] Doomhammer/Baelgun pve servers, alliance side! Check us out!
      About Us:
      <Trust> is a recently formed guild, founded by a group of long time players that have been raiding together for a couple of years now. Founded out of a desire to continue raiding in a casual-progression manner, we work towards defeating mythic bosses. <Trust> is a raiding guild, first and foremost.
      Our Raids:
      <Trust> maintains a progression-oriented 2-day semi-casual raiding team. That's 'semi' as in we expect our team members to always prioritize life first; but not 'casual' as in we take downing bosses less seriously.

      Raid Schedule:
      Tuesday & Thursday: 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)

      So ive been having alot of issues with my arcane mage lately and i have no idea what i am doing wrong.  I know that i should be pulling more dps than i am.  Anything you can do to help is greatly appreciated.
      I generally stay to the rotation. Sometimes I go into burn phases early although i dont notice till its too late... and i have to wait for evocate to come off cd... doesnt happen very often though.
      Here is my last log from AMR : https://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/combatlog/player/us/stormrage/r%C3%A6m%C3%ADni 
      Here is my Armory:  http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/Stormrage/R%C3%A6m%C3%ADni/advanced

      So I need an opinion on what is better to wear, since AMR is flaky and for some reason wont take into account crafted trinkets.
      So I just finished upgrading my Stone of Fire but got the Blackiron Micro Crucible (iLvl 670) off a mission. So what is better to use as an Arcane Mage?
      My second trinket is DUT (iLvl 670) if that makes any difference.

      So I play an arcane mage right now, big surprise.
      My ilvl is 480, I follow this site and another site for understanding my class but apparently I am still just garbage and suck at everything. My dps on the first MSV boss is roughly 60k (with out being chained) low 40k (with being chained)
      a boss like the 2nd one, where its mainly a tank and spank for me I average 55k to 65k and cant seem to tweak my shit.
      I think this is the proper world of logs
      Rotation for a quick fight
      living bomb
      arcane blast x4
      refresh bomb
      arcane blast x2
      arcane / scorch until 2 missles (refreshing living as needed)
      mirror image
      hand sprocket (engineering)
      alter time macro (uses a quick pot, arcane power and arcane blast at the end)
      while in alter time
      missles x2
      refresh bomb
      Once out
      missle x2
      start over
      My armory page...
      unbuffed I have 10% haste, and I know this is an issue but I just do not know what I am doing with it comes to reforging and shit, I did the askmrrobot and think that it is garbage (the stats were uncorrect, it didnt have anything correct)
      so can I get any dps help ?
