Arcane Mage - confused on dps

3 posts in this topic

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.

      I came to Icy Veins to setup my Elemental Shaman only to find your Talent setup does not match what is offered in the game presently.  Below I have listed what I see in my current in-game talent setup and bolded those items that do not match your setup at all.
      Current in-game Talents listed:                                                   Your Listing:                      
      15 Exposed Elements Echo of the Elements Elemental Blast               Earthen Rage 30 Aftershock Master of Elements Totem Mastery       Call the Thunder 45 Spirit Wolf Earth Shield Static Charge         60 High Voltage Storm Elemental Liquid Magma Totem       Master of the Elements 75 Nature's Guardian Ancestral Guidance Wind Rush Totem         90 Earthen Rage Primal Elementalist Icefury       Surge of Power 100 Unlimited Power Stormkeeper Ascendance         I thought someone here should know about these differences because it appears there has been no update recently to your setup.   I know that I personally would appreciate an update so that I can adjust my in-game setup to work better.

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which semi-recently transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some shit.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are in need of any competent DPS, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.
