Unholy DK DPS help needed

11 posts in this topic

Hello!

I'm just a casual player, recently started playing unholy DK. I can barely do 220K dps and I have no idea why. Got unlucky and a Frost legendary dropped from a random mob when I was fooling around playing Frost talent..so yeah. I have a Frost legendary as Unholy. :P

AK 12, Weapons is lvl 21 (in log it was 18 then) not all talents are unlocked (not that it matters I reckon, that "double doom" feels pretty useless too).

Armory:

Here's a log from our guild:

TOV Guarm - Normal :

TEN Xavious - Heroic:

I'm not using any kind of extra addon, like weakauras and such. It's a hassle and I don't like addons, I'm only using GW2UI and Kuinameplates. I'm not running flask or food either (+1% crit is not worth my gold, no to mention the flask is 1K gold for one...)

I welcome any help regarding rotations talents or whatnot that might help. I love the class even though it might not be the best so I hope I can get better with it. (and please don't tell me I should go frost...)

Thanks in advance for the help!

Isn't this quite obvious? :P You don't need to be a genius to figure out this I reckon.  Anyway, thanks!

considering the laundry list of things you refuse to do to improve your dps its very much not obvious.

You could have simply said "yes, and im having trouble with xyz in the rotation..." or "yes and i follow it to a T", to continue the conversation.

But with this attitude you can go ahead and sit on your frost gear and spin.

peace

So, you come here looking for help, great.

You get help and then act like you have a chip on your shoulder when someone takes the time to try and help you. Thats mature of you, not!.

Cop on to yourself and you might get some help.

Alright so after looking at your logs ignoring the obvious that's not worth your time or what ever i.e pot etc. You're missing soul reapers missed 2, you could have gotten at least 7. Also missed a dark transformation which if you're using shadow infusion is especiallybig deal means your not getting it back on cd so you can get it off cd again. Dot up time isn't 100% on guarm it's extremely easy to get 99.99 or 100%. You're casting festering strike way way to often, especially considering you don't have legendary bracers. You wasted a lot of wounds, and in essence runes. If i had to guess you've had missed approx 40 runes which is 8 runes, and wasting other runes. Which in turn is a lot of cd. Couple times when sudden doom procced it went wasted or wasn't used until like 8 or 9 seconds after which means ones could have proced on top of it. You were runic capped for a while too something that's really avoidable when you don't have legendary bracers, if you have the legendary bracers it's not avoidable you'll be runic capped but without bracers you can easily have 0 time when runic capped.

 

I know weak auras aren't worth your time or something, but the question is how isn't it worth your time? It's addon with a 3 second download then 3 second import of a weak aura someone else made then 10 seconds to move the weak aura to where you want it.

Oh wow, now that's an answer. I don't know what the others found revolting about my other posts. I don't think it was immature or anything like that. oo

 

Anyway, thank you very much for the detailed answer. This is actually something that I should think about.

And what I don't like about weakauras? hm...I don't like the visual clusterfuck that WoW normally is. Too much useless information, or repeated information (like HP bars or cooldown and numbers)..it kinda turns the whole game into an ui-whack-a-mole.

I'll try this weakaura nonetheless, once again, thank you for the detailed answer!

I think the others just found that your response to their questions with "Obviously" and then you said "That's already a laundry list" or what ever. But he was just trying to gauge where you were in terms of play generally people who generally don't use flask food etc generally aren't to advanced in play. I would explain why but is generally pretty obvious.

I didn't really use the word "obviously" as a detrimental word I reckon. The laundry list comment taunt was done by the other guy, I just questioned back that two things is already considered a laundry list for him. :D

 

Anyway, off the topic. So, I've checked this weakaura thingie. I dunno man, kuinameplates already show each festering wound and the other virus stuff. Also the artifact talent too. That buff thing too from the runeforging. (gwui2)

I'll try some other weakauras, maybe something will stick.

You don't have to use it, it's just something i use and many others and helps most players once they get used to it.

      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.)

      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!

      So uhm, first post here and i take the opportunity to take you guys through my fabulous journey into "breaking" the tavern brawl this morning.
       
      So i get on that six-shooter tavern brawl with a mage decklist ( just cause i need them gold from quest ya know :D ) and on my second or third game,
       
      I play Research Project my opponent had then 10 cards in hand and draws for the turn, but no deck refill.... He then plays Barnes, no minion comes up from the battlecry. so it aint a visual bug. start my turn, play another Research Project, my opponent fatigues for 1+2, i can then OTK him with my 0 costs spells due to my 4 copies of Sorcerer's Apprentice.
      Fun fact, the tavern brawl clearly says; Make a six-card deck and duel! Don't worry - when you're out of cards you get a free reload!.
      Can anyone recall to this happening to them or no one had the cojones to mill?

      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.
