Arcane Mage - confused on dps

Recommended Posts

Ok so raiding in guild, on Star Augur Normal im struggling to hit and stay consistent at 300K, yet when i did LFR i did 500K+ (lowest i went was 450K)

Not doing anything different and its been like this with the other bosses. Followed the rotation guide and everything i'm doing is right, checked stats etc and they are right, but still struggling to get decent DPS.

In our logs i am always in the grey (meaning im not utilising stuff more) but yet i have no idea how to change this as i am literally using cooldowns when i can and also doing my burn phase and conserve phase when i need to.

So, I don't claim to be any kind of pro arcane mage, my guild is still progressing through hc. But maybe I can help you out a bit. Here's my logs https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/character/17191329/latest

From what I can see, you're using mirror images. I would suggest using rune of power, you will get more damage out of it.

From your logs, you seem to be struggling on all bosses, not just star augur. Maybe practice your rotation a bit. One thing that may be affecting your dps is too much movement. Try to move only when necessary. For example, on star augur you can blink out of the group when you need to, then displacement back without disrupting casting too much.

I'm not very good at analyzing logs, but from your latest star augur kill i can see that you aren't getting as much out of your arcane power as you should be. possibly movement as well as the lack of rune of power there. You've got decent legendaries for single target, so you should definitely be pulling more.

If you /w me ingame I might be able to help more.

I made an account just to respond to this post. I have mained Arcane Mage for two expansions in a row so far and raid mythic as Arcane. I have personally trained 4 people in proper talent choices, planning out CD usage and general rotations and mechanics. They all have increased their dps by orders of magnitude. Now, it may be more difficult in your case because we're different factions, but if you're interested, my Btag is Redshots#11765.

      Hi everyone. So I've read the guide on fire mage here on Icy-veins and got some questions related to single target rotation. First I'd like to ask about the meteor. It is mentioned that meteor should be used with Rune of Power which is fairly easy to do since Rune of Power is always ready when Metor is off cooldown. However It's also mentioned that Meteor should always be available when Combustion comes off cooldown. Now Combustion has a 2 min cooldown and meteor has 45 sec cooldown. I can use meteor twice while Combustion is on cooldown. However If I use Meteor twice , It is on cooldown when Combustion is ready. Should I wait for Combustion and not cast Meteor on the second time until Combustion is ready?
      Second what I'd like to ask is about Combustion after the opener. Its mentioned that I need a hot streak before I pop It. I fish for Pyros by casting Fireball until I get a crit and then use Fire Blast. However when I get an Hot streak I'm already mid-casting Fireball. Should I cancel the cast and cast Rune of Power or should I let that Fireball hit and immediately after start casting Rune of Power?
      It's also mentioned that I need to have a Fire Blast charge always ready before going in Combustion phase. Should I save up a charge and ignore the Heating Ups I get regardless and hope for Fireball to crit twice or basically wait for Fire Blast to get another charge?
      Thanks 🙂
