Greetings Mages of IcyVeins,

i am seeking your help to compare a guildmate of mine to my own performance.

He is doing significantly more DMG than me and i can't see why that is.

Would someone be so Kind as to compare Erdin with Juvîa please?

My Char is Juvîa, Erdin is my Guildmate.

 

Arsenal:

Erdin: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/theradras/Erdin/simple

Juvîa: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/dethecus/Juvîa/simple

 

Logs:

Nythendra Myth: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/jybH6AN7C9dpRVmr#fight=1

Ursoc Myth: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/jybH6AN7C9dpRVmr#

 

 

Let's compare the fights:

 

Nythendra
  Erdin Juvîa
Pyro 77 63
Fireball 60 42
Flame Blast 34 31
PF 14 14
RoP 9 8
Combustion 4 3

Ursoc
  Erdin Juvîa
Pyro 66 61
Fireball 66 37
Flame Blast 30 33
PF 12 12
RoP 8 7
Combustion 4 3

 

Hints:

- I got less FB casts because of my Legendary Belt (i use Scorch <25% Boss HP)

- I am "missing" one Combustion because of Cinderstorm instead of Kindling (-> Legendary Belt again)
 

What i noticed:

- His Pyros crit more often (Nythendra in this case) -> better Heating Up Conversion

- he casts Pyro more often - not sure how (because of HU-Conversion?)

- i could be using Ice Flows more often

- i am missing one RoP each fight in this example log

- His DMG on Ursoc partially comes from Dragon's Breath + Ruby on the Add

I recently discovered the following tool. Not sure how accurate it is however:

http://www.checkmywow.com/reports/jybH6AN7C9dpRVmr/73430163/1?tab=basic

 

My Conclusion:

There are smal differences in the basic Rotation which should result in rather small DMG gap.

My Confusion: (see what i did there? :D)

The DMG gap is huge..?

 

I would love to hear your opinion. Maybe i am missing something significant?

If you need more logs or anything else, feel free to let me know.

Thank all of you in advance!! :)

(Please be kind, english is not my primary language)

Honestly, it's because of Cinderstorm. The spell doesn't contribute to Hot Streaks, and you use a pretty good number of pyroblasts during combusts.

I know this is subject to change in 7.1.5, but I also have that belt and still do not replace Fireball with Scorch unless I absolutely have to move. Scorch does not benefit from the Enhanced Pyrotechnics, so if you begin to have a bad streak of noncrits, the anti-RNG will never kick in to save you. And for that very reason you took Cinderstorm in place of Kindling, it doesn't benefit Kindling in any way. And Kindling is just too strong, which is what is being displayed by the very comparison you have brought before us today.

 

Also on Nythendra he used some Flamestrikes on the MC pack. Which from a pure dps standpoint is a good idea, but it also applies that 50% slow, so unless your group has a Mass dispel ready after every MC anyways I would say is probably hurting a bit more than helping, as it will make it harder for the group to be spread out for the next rot wave and cause avoidable stacks. Just my 2 cents on that one.

 

Honestly you're hurting yourself trying to utilize a legendary that in the current patch is kinda lackluster. Replacing Fireball with Scorch means dropping one of the strongest single target talents available, just look at rankings for every fight, there's not  single Cinderstorm build in the top 10 on any fight in mythic . Those extra combust phases are too strong to pass up and Cinderstorm, while hitting slightly harder than a pyro if all cinders hit, does not apply the double Ignite from the Hot Streak so the overall damage of it is a bit lower.

Hello Tehril,

thanks for your respone. I never liked Cinderstorm tbh. The only reason i am using it is because Scorch doesn't work with Kindling. I will run a few tests to see if it is better not to use Scorch even with the legendary. That would solve the Cinderstorm problem aswell.

Koralon's is better on the PTR right now. We will see when 7.1.5 is released. :)

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, PUBG, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletag: Vims#21684
