Log help. Desperate.

4 posts in this topic

Me and my raid group are still progressing through Mythic EN, though we have Nyth, Elerethe, and Ursoc all easily on farm. I'm consistently parsing very low for my ilvl, and consistently losing out in dps to a lower ilvl shaman of the same spec. Despite usually having better buff uptimes than him and better cd usage he parses much better than me. Usually the main difference i find is he gets off way more stormstrikes than me. Recently I've started mashing that button almost nonstop in fights, sometimes sacrificing a few seconds of buff time to get off more stormstrikes, but the results seem to be about the same as before. 

Below you'll find logs that have both of us in them, as well as mine and his armory links. I'm Bigboyee and the other shaman is Cyrashapa. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

The Ursoc fight in particular on this one:

Ursoc and Odyn were the only clean fights we had here:

The first log link had mentioned the Elerethe fight instead of ursoc by mistake

Scratching on my head on why you're linking a parse where you died 2 minutes in. Doesn't seem very helpful to your DPS.

The other shaman has more points in his weapon than yours, which also makes a difference.

I'm not sure why you have the Sundering talent, it doesn't show on the logs so I'm assuming you weren't actually using it then.

On Odyn, Cyrashapa had 356 casts of abilities (backing out Doom Vortex since that is passive), you had 303. That's more than I could account for with the difference in Haste on your gear. I suspect efficient movement and target selection are a problem there. In general, make sure you are filling as many empty GCD's as you can - Boulderfist, Crash Lightning, or Flametongue should be available. If not, you can also refresh Frostbrand a hair earlier than you have to.

I was tired last night when i posted, meant to say Ursoc instead of Elerethe (edited now). 

According to the summary tab of the log he only has 1 trait over me, which was a pretty weak minor trait, unless I'm reading that wrong?

That was for some pvp I was doing, on the summary tab of the logs you can see i was running with proper talents in the fights.

Wow, really. I'll see what I can find on that. I'll watch replays for that fight and see how he moves compared to me. 

Thanks a bunch Tarazet, and if you find anything else in the Ursoc fight in the first link now, that would also be greatly appreciated. Especially since that fight isn't really about efficient movement or target selection.

Looked at Ursoc and found pretty much the same thing going on, which is interesting. You have better uptimes than him on your buffs, and your gear is better as well. Neither of you are wasting a lot of Maelstrom. Doom Vortex doesn't make enough of a difference to close the gap. The only thing I can really point to is, the other Shaman is being more aggressive with Stormstrike and letting Flametongue fall off if he has a lot of Stormbringers in a row. His Maelstrom generation overall was some 10% higher.. because every time an attack procs Windfury, it refunds 5 Maelstrom, so it adds up to a higher gain throughout the fight which in turn allowed him to use even more Stormstrikes.

I also don't know if you are refreshing buffs early with pandemic. Normally it's a good thing, but you never know when that next Stormbringer is coming, and our auto-attack damage is nothing to write home about. So I'll let it fall off and apply it on the first available GCD if I have the chance to use Stormstrike instead.

      Hi all, 
      First of all, sorry for my bad English, is not my native language :) 
      So I'm searching since some days, Enh shaman stat weight for sim. I looked on Simulation Craft, but it's look weird that mastery is so close to haste. 
      I think it is ok when you don't have gloves legendary. But with them, haste is way so far than mastery? 
      Thanks in advance for your help !

      I am concerned that I am severely under performing as a fury warrior. I can manage to parse typically in the 80s for almost every fight in heroic ToS with a few exceptions: Mistress, Host, Avatar. I'm currently 933 equipped and I'm not at all concerned about my stats... I know I should and could be parsing in the 90s. But I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. 
      My opener looks something like this: Charge, Pop Moonglaives trinket, Pop all CDS, Raging Blow, Oden's Fury, Rampage, then start normal priority rotation: Enraged RB>100 rage Rampage>RB>BT>FS. 
      I have recently discovered that I have been doing my execute phase entirely wrong. I just went and tried first two bosses of heroic ToS again. Parses went up slightly... Goroth: 83->89, Inquis:84->90 but still not where I need to be. 
      Another think I'd like to mention is that I try to prioritize Enraged RB @100 rage before hitting rampage. According to Kelade (one of top fury warriors in US), this is 100k dps difference. Although at times I find myself in an awkward situation where I'm at 100 rage with RB on CD and I literally have to wait a whole global to hit it... I'd like to know how to make that stop lol. 
      Last issue I'd like to bring up is this: Most of the time not all my CDs will line up perfectly together... BC, glaives, OF will be up but Avatar will be down. I'm slightly confused about when to use All/some of my cds... especially on fights like heroic KJ. Fights like Harj and Miss I'm confused about if I should hold all my cds for adds or blow them in the beginning along with prepot... I feel like prepot is a total waste without cds...
      Below you will find the link to my armory and logs. Please Help me. I need to be parsing much higher than I am. My guild is doing mythic and I don't want to be the one holding us back.

      Hi. This is my armory: Armory
      My logs: Logs
      I think I should do more DPS in whole ToS HC but especially on fallen avatar.
      My questions:
      i have a loot of trinkets and I'm not sure I should use those I use:
      915ilvl Vial of Ceaseless Toxins and 890ilvlUnstable Arcanocrystal
      I have 900ilvl Engine of Eradication
                  870ilvl Bloodthirsty Instinct
                  875ilvl Convergence of Fates
                  870ilvl  Spontaneous Appendages.
      My goal is to get Smoldering Heart And what is the best choice parts of T20 set with this legendary and of course Eye of the Twisting Nether.
      With this ring i have another question should i use Frostbrand? and I think last question for now: when i should use Crash Lightning after 6sec or after some stacks from T20 bonus?

      Hi, so I'd like to think that have got the fury rotation down, I've been using the Icy veins guide and some pointers from MMO-Champion. I don't think I have any big issues apart from the BC with CoF trinket, like if it's worth waiting for other cooldowns like OF to be up with BC, that's my main question. 
      So I have linked my logs for some PuG raiding the other week, so if someone is up for the task of analyzing them for me, that'd be great. Sorry if my sentences are wrong or weird, I'm really hungover... 
      Log Normal ToS:
      ( In Goroth Normal, you will see some downtime in the middle of the fight. I got disconnected that is the answer:/ )
      Log Heroic ToS:
      Thanks, this is my first post here so if I'm missing anything please comment! :)
