17 traits
Logs: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/character/21010315/10/#metric=bossdps

My DPS is really comically low. These logs are old and I hadn't read the compendium at the time, but even after doing that I can't stay above like 160k on target dummies. Simcraft is telling me I should be pushing close to 300k, and the people in the Warrior discord tell me that I should be able to get pretty close to those numbers.

So can someone just come meet me in Skyhold and help me out or something? I've read about the rotation, and had people tell me it, but I just need someone to like see what I'm doing wrong or something.

I'm Boogal on Emerald Dream US, horde side. Send me a whisper or reply here I guess.

Good morning, Boogal.

I'm going to give you some observances in a bullet format. If any of these do not make sense or you wish to have further clarification, don't hesitate to ask.

  • "17 traits" doesn't really tell me much. I'm not sure which path you spent those 17 traits. If you did it correctly, it means you have Shattered Defenses, Corrupted Blood of Zakajz, and you're heading toward Focus in Battle. Looking through the logs you provided I see the Shattered Defenses buff but I do not see Zakajz so this leads me to believe you spent points in the wrong direction.
  • Looking over your logs I couldn't help but notice that your tier 60 talent is Defensive Stance. While I did not see the buff actually applied during combat, you should note that, while active, it's a 10% damage reduction to you. Instead of using Defensive Stance you should be using Bounding Stride.
  • Your item level during those logs were also below 840 - the first few encounters being as low as 826. With your gear now, being 855, you might be able to touch 300K (depending on how far along you are now in your artifact) but I seriously doubt it.

    Never use SimulationCraft to see where your DPS numbers should be. SimCraft is used as a stat weight tool and item comparison tool. DPS readouts are assuming (depending on the settings you have) that you are standing still, behind the target, never moving, have all buffs (food, flask, rune, potion(s), and hero), have an execute phase, and never make a mistake. Testing and comparing to a dummy - you'll never see those numbers, let alone in a real encounter where you're moving, having to switch targets, avoiding mechanics, down time, making mistakes, missing buffs, etc. You see the problem when comparing Simcraft to what you're actually doing?
  • You're not using the Focused-Rage talent build. Any build outside of this, when it comes to raiding, will be sub-par when it comes to Arms. It's not an easy build to maintain but it's definitely the best performing one. This point, at this time, is probably the least of your concerns, however.
  • Your trinkets in the logs were horrible and your trinkets that the armory reflects really aren't the best, either. One is a stat stick and one is for tanks. While this won't magically fix your numbers, appropriate trinkets will help.

========================

At this point I would advise the following:

  • Research your class and spec that you want to play with. Use guides here on Icy Veins. There's a Discord channel for Warriors (although it can be toxic most of the time), MMO-Champion, etc. There's plenty of guides out there and available. Read them and learn them. You'll need to understand stat priorities, rotation mechanics, and what you're looking for in respects to gear when you enter a raid.
  • Start with the basics when you raid; understand mechanics and come prepared: stat food, flasks, potions, runes. While individually they may not make your numbers magically higher, combined they will be a significant portion of your damage done. Not dying and staying consistent in your (correct) spec and rotation will significantly improve your performance.
  • Practice. Practice. Practice some more. When you're done, take a break, and then come back and practice some more. Use logs to review mistakes, learn, and practice some more. (This is why we have target dummies in Skyhold and other locations.)

I hope this helps get you started in the right direction. As stated; if you have any questions or other clarifications don't hesitate to ask.

although it wouldn't explain the difference between sim and reality, at a quick glance, your mastery is super low.  I am around your same ilvl with 82% mastery.  huge difference there.

      I feel like I should be performing better as a frost mage at my specific level. If some of you don't mind taking a look at my logs and letting me know what I could do to improve, it would help me out a lot. 
      A lot of people have told me once i get bracers and shard that my dps will normalize for my ilvl. Is this true? I follow the standard for frost mage st rotation: dont eat Ice-lance procs, don't waste insta flurries, spend flurries by frostbolt>flurry>Ice-lance, etc. If I am missing something, please let me know. 
      Here are some logs to look at.

        Joining Autumn Mist
      During your trial period we will be looking at your mastery over your class, your attendance and attitude during raids. Your awareness of boss fights and mechanics, along with your ability to adapt and learn. How you handle success along with failure. Progress is important to us but the atmosphere of the raids must be maintained a good personality and a sense of humor is a must.

      We are also recruiting people looking to make the big jump from Heroic to Mythic raiding, we understand this transition isn't easy and can be overwhelming. Our experience has shown us stones can be polished into gems and we will help you on that journey.

      Hi guys, I got some issues with my dps,
       
      I'm struggling to maintain over 650k dps...
       
      I'm new to fury warrior, was a mythic raider with my assassination rogue but... with the warrior it seems like I'm not doing something well...
       
      Here is what I do :
       
      OPENER
       
       
      Charge -> AVATAR+BC+Berserktroll -> BT -> RB -> RP -> OF …
       
       
      Trying to maintain enrage with BT or RP > RB > etc.. (normal rotation)
       
       
      I’m always tring to use RP at 100% rage,
       
       
      Do I have to clip it with BT ?
      I mean, when I’m enraged, my rotation is :
       
       
      RP (100% rage) -> RB -> BT -> RB > RP(100% rage)… with my +15% crit fillers
      I’m trying to pop OF everytime that I’m enraged (with BC if possible),
       
       
      I don’t have any set bonuses. No COF and no “good trinkets”…
       
       
      Execution phase :
      BT > EXEC EXEC… > BT > EXEC EXEC…
       
       
      I can’t link my armory…
       
       
      I’m Moca, War fury from SARGERAS EU
       
       
      Am I missing something ?
       
      I think that I'm supposed to be way higher, like 850k+...
       
      Thank you !
       
      Sorry, I'm french and new to fury, if you got some questions, don't hesitate :)
