Subtelity Rogue not like simulation

5 posts in this topic

Hi ! I tough I was doing Ok with my dps, but I find my self pretty low when i compare with other rogues. I'm considering switching to assassination because of this reason ... 

I would like to know What I'm doing wrong because i tought my rotation was good. 

This is my logs -> https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/hv6bfdgAjWDXF2BY#fight=2&type=damage-done&source=13

Dywolfs 337k.
When I look at some others rogues (without the OP legendary boots) I am 130k behind them for the same Ilvl
https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/P2hFJnYyg6a4A7bv#fight=29&type=damage-done&source=15

Oswin -> 468k

When I compare our cast, we have pretty much the same rotation / cast.
So except for the 4% nightblade missing, what I am doing wrong ? 

Thanks 

On askmrRobot, it say i shoud be at 378k on ursoc

The correct stats should be  Agility > Versatility > Main Hand Damage > Critical Strike > Mastery > Haste > Off Hand Damage > Leech > Avoidance > Movement Speed

Right ?

Well, first of all stop taking advices from askmrRobot. It sucks. When legion was on the stat weights were 1agi, 0.7vers, 0.65mastery and 0.61crit. Meanwhile, we've got a 15% increased dmg on both of our finishers, so IMO the mastery pulls ahead of vers. I personally go Agi-mastery-vers-crit. 

In combat, I usually Shadow Blade in the opener before I go with the shadowstrikes. That ensures me that 2 shadowstrikes are enough for 6 cp so I get my nightblade up sooner. Also don't be in such a hurry with the shadow dance. I see situations in which you want to shadowstrike so fast after casting shadow dance that you end up backstabbing. That's a known mistake that you should've fixed.

You'll want to use the max pandemic on a nightblade when the Finality artifact trait is up and then let that nightblade almost expire before you renew it. This maximizes your Finality dmg.

You rush with the goremaw's bite in the opener thing that I don't usually do when BL is up. 

When it's time to refresh Symbols during a shadow dance, always Shadowdance-2xShadowstrikes-Finisher-Symbols-Shadowstrike. If you refresh Symbols before the finishing move you may fuck up the whole shadow dance if you don't get energetic stabbing.

I'm not so sure the problem only liest with the cycle.

First you cannot really compare both logs as the higher one is 1min shorter than the other one meaning that he is much closer to the burst phase.

Then if you look at the average casts for finishers Dywolf's ones are 20% lower than Oswin's. When looking at his stuff his weapon as 13ilvl more than you and is 10 points more evolved

Finally Oswin has the ring that is the second best legendary and doing 4.17% of his dps.

 

As a side note I compared MrRobbot stats with simcrafts a month ago and they where very close (MrRobbot is now adapting stats to the ilvl and stuff taking the closest pre-calculated Template if I understood correctly). When you don't have time/want to bother with runing your own simcraft I think it is a good alternative.

If you're going to argue that a data model is poor, it's usually a good idea to have math supporting your statement.

It's pretty pointless to actually put a value on things like Leech and Avoidance. They don't really impact your character in a meaningful way, and aren't a stat that you can actively search out. They just kind of show up.

Secondly, due to relics and how the Artifact weapons work, weapon damage/dps isn't really something that is worth listing in with all the other stats. They have their own section, and the stats that are recommended are separate from them because they apply to all gear.

Your gear isn't the same in the slightest. I'm not talking about item level so much as stats: your average Evis cast hits for 660k, theirs hits for 800k. Your average Nightblade hits for 1.09m, theirs hits for 1.58m. 

Maybe they have more Mastery than you do, maybe they have much better itemised relics, maybe you just don't have Finality or other traits in your artifact weapon (I don't see this buff in your logs, but I think it might not show up properly for some reason).

It also doesn't look like you have very good trinkets, given that I only see the Bloodthirsty Instinct proc, but maybe you just have a good stat stick.

Point of note: Simulations do not accurately predict real-raid situations. Your damage WILL be lower than Sims on a regular basis, because you will have to deal with mechanics. Sometimes you'll get screwed and have to run out multiple times in an encounter, which will impact your damage in a very significant way.

      We're a close-knit guild that hangs out in Discord a lot, joking, playing alts, Mythic+, other games or just hanging out. Fun guild events happen monthly!

      Overall, we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other. (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Hello there!

      <Shadow> on Argent Dawn has been going since 2009. We are a close-knit community and strongly believe in recruiting people who will fit in with us rather than just whoever is topping the meters. We also believe that having a busy RL life with job/family/social commitments and committing to Mythic raiding as a hobby we're all passionate about are not mutually exclusive. We are looking to bolster our line-up to push for Cutting Edge in Antorus.

      About us
       
      We progress raid Thursdays and Sundays, 20:00-23:00 and 19:30-22:30 respectively (all times server time)
      We have a non-mandatory farm raid Fridays at 20:30 that socials and alts are welcome to
      We use Discord for voice communication and have an active server to hang out, chat, and organise M+ runs
      We maintain a mature environment - having a laugh is great, but bullying, endless meme-spamming and the like are not welcome
      We believe in learning from your mistakes - you will never be yelled at, but you will be asked whether you know what you did wrong and how you can fix it
       

      What we expect from recruits
       
      Sign up to raids ahead of time and give us a heads-up in case of longer absences
      Be there 15 minutes before raid start and bring your own consumables as back-up to feasts and cauldrons
      Do your homework - research encounters thoroughly and understand them
      Understand and know how to play your class
      Have Discord installed and a working microphone, ready to speak when required but without cluttering up comms with chatter
      You don't need to grind to the point of burn-out, but keep up with AP traits and do M+ to hone your skills and supplement your gear
      Be a team player and bring a positive attitude. Wipes happen in Mythic. Constructive feedback is great, backseat raid leading is not.


      What we are currently looking for

      A rule that applies to all potential recruits is: We do not recruit for the bench, but we will always take the team that is most likely to defeat the boss and cannot promise everyone they will always be in for every fight. When things are equal in terms of performance and required composition, we much prefer to rotate people in and out over benching someone for an entire night.
      One Healer - Paladin preferred, but any class that isn't priest will be considered
      One Tank - Bear, Brewmaster or Blood DK
      Melee DPS - got one spot for a Rogue
      Ranged DPS - Boomkins, Shadow Priests, Warlocks and Hunters

      If this sounds like the guild for you, check us out at shadow-wow.enjin.com or contact the Co-GMs Alec#2922 and NevNev#2669 for more info!

      See you in Antorus!
