[Fire] Help with DPS

7 posts in this topic

Hello Community,

I am an experienced Mage player since BC, however I am not satisfied with my mage Damage as it is at the moment:

Would you point out possible Improvements or grave mistakes visible in the logs?

Thank you very much!

Hey :)

Some points to mention (just took a short look at the Nythendra fight):

1. Use you Sinew 3 or 4 seconds before the pull, so you should reach the 10th stack while still inside your RoP.

2. Don't use Flame On outside of Combustion. You should delay it, to have it ready for every burst, to get the best out of it.

3. Use your second pot as well while bursting, to fit more casts inside the duration of it.

4. Never cast Fireball while Comb is up. If you're out of instants, cast Scorch to get another crit.

 

Hopefully these points improve you a little bit further but according to the ranking (64 in your bracket), you aren't that bad :)

Hey Lily,

 

thank you for your reply!

 

1. Great tip, thank you!

2. Really? Won't this ruin a lot of possible hot streaks, because I have no instant to finish a heating up?

3. True, I already thought that too. I could use that one better for sure!

4. This I do not get. Why would I go for scorch? It is not 100% crit anymore, right?

 

Thank you!

4. During combustion, everything will critically strike, so scorch is the best option if you have no instants because it is a quick cast, therefore having more pyroblasts. 

You should also have alot more critical strike rating in my opinion.

2. Well it is possible, that you lose some Hot Streaks. But you will get another 6 Pyros inside your Comb+RoP.

4. I wanted to say, that you shouldn't cast Fireball while you have the Combustion-Buff. You're losing time compared to Scorch and if Comb is up, every cast will crit :)

And in general: Fire DMG is mostly coming from our bursts :)

You want to use Flame On on cooldown, you just need to be sure it's up for Combustion.  You need to be using it to maximize your dps.

 

You shouldn't be casting anything in Combustion except Pyro, FB, PF, and Flame On.  You shouldn't be using Fireball OR scorch inside combustion.  You should be going into combustion with a hot streak already, leading to pure pyro spam.

my man at the beginning i had some problems too. u should use the talents recommended by all guides for starters. That is Pyromaniac or Conflagration (if you are a rookie and rotation seems hard take conflag),shimmer,rune of power,flame on ,ice floes,unstable magic or living bomb (again if u are a rookie i suggest unstable magic u have to use living bomb at the right times if u want it to work really well-although if u do u get huge difference in AoE) and finally kindling. Now with kindling ur combustion cd is going to go from 2mins to less than 1 min with enough crit- usually enough crit =around 60%) so that means u never use flame on outside of combustion. so u should save flame on,at least 2 charges of phoenix flame and 1 rune of power for when combustion gets off cd.Then ur rotation should be something like that:  Fireball till u get heating up then use fire blast to make it a hot streak and then Rune of power (and combustion at the end of the rune of power cast) and then fire blast -pyroblast-flame on-fire blast-pyroblast-fire blast-pyroblast-fire blast-pyroblast-phoenix flames -pyro-phoenix flames-pyro. if u use time warp u can get in combustion time another phoenix flames pyro at the end.Finally never stay with 3 stacks of phoenix flames or 2 stacks of Rune of power -it is just dps loss. For ur aoe besides living bomb ur flamestrike and ur ignite will do the job but u need to unlock some artifact traits for it to work well. finally u ll see a huge difference in dps when u get OVER 58-59% crit thats the breakpoint

      Hi,
      I need some help figuring out my rogues weak auras.
      I currently have this: https://gyazo.com/e9f6967a7c2e56fdb4a88f9c554ebd22
      What I want to happen is that when there are 3 seconds remaining on for ex rupture, the icon of rupture glows and once rupture is gone the icon just stays there glowing.
      Secondly, could someone give me the ID for the envenom buff as I cannot seem to track it whatever I do. Hopefully in the same format as the others in the picture above.
      Can anyone help me with this by guiding me on how to do it or giving me the string on the new one?
      Thanks in advance.

      Hey all. 
      I've been beating my head against the wall in regards to my DPS.

      I'm very ashamed actually. In the past I have pulled *What I thought was very good numbers* only to see that my DPS is in constant decline. I understand most people are going Frost, but I have invested so much time into Unholy, to switch now would only increase my agitation. I'm no longer a clicker, that's a plus! 
      I have my two piece currently. Currently on Heroic content and I'm needing some advice. Rotation is pretty common with what's suggested. We have a few DK's in our raid group, most of them Frost with another Unholy, who COMPLETELY blows me out of the water. Maybe it's because I'm stuck with Eye Of Command and on multi-add boss fights, it's useless. Help me fellow DK's. I would SO appreciate it.

      Hey guys,
      I am writing for DPS help. I am currently doing crap DPS pretty regularly. I was the top DPS in casual raids for a very long time with 870-880 gear. Around New Years, I was playing while very inebriated. I equipped a bunch of the wrong gear and sold the stuff I took off. I went through the Blizzard gear recovery to get back the pieces I vendored but they were rerolled (upgraded items that were vendored at 875 came back as the base level). I have since upgraded most of the pieces and increased my item level by 11. My DPS is worse now than it was almost 20 ILs lower.
      Issues:
      DPS - lower than it was when my gear and IL was much worse.
      Astral Power generation - I feel like I am generating Astral Power far slower than the other balance druid in raid.
      Rotation:
      I follow the recommended rotations, precasting Solar Wrath when able. Otherwise its Moonfire, Sunfire, New Moon, Half Moon, Full Moon, Starsurge.
      Gear:
      Besides what is equipped, I have Whispers in the Dark 880, Oakheart's Gnarled Root 885. I have 3 of the set pieces (Robe of the Astral Warden 880, Cloak of the Astral Warden 875, Hood of the Astral Warden 875) but they are all significantly lower in IL than my current gear. I have four legendaries, the two I am wearing,  Ekowraith, Creator of Worlds and Promise of Elune, the Moon Goddess.

      I used to out DPS the other balance druid in guid, Netcat. Now he destroys me.
