Hey all. 

I've been beating my head against the wall in regards to my DPS. 



I'm very ashamed actually. In the past I have pulled *What I thought was very good numbers* only to see that my DPS is in constant decline. I understand most people are going Frost, but I have invested so much time into Unholy, to switch now would only increase my agitation. I'm no longer a clicker, that's a plus! 

I have my two piece currently. Currently on Heroic content and I'm needing some advice. Rotation is pretty common with what's suggested. We have a few DK's in our raid group, most of them Frost with another Unholy, who COMPLETELY blows me out of the water. Maybe it's because I'm stuck with Eye Of Command and on multi-add boss fights, it's useless. Help me fellow DK's. I would SO appreciate it.

So looking at your logs theres a couple problems i notice. First being potion of oldwar, prolonged power is better currently, on top of that you only used 1 old war. Secondly and this is a the big one, none of your soul reapers had more than 2 stacks of the buff, and most of them only having 1. You gotta be popping 3 wounds in the duration of soul reaper this is easily a 20-40k dps loss alone. This bringing me to my next point of you really didn't have a lot of wounds popped, which is really surprising you only had 80 wounds popped which makes me assume you can't always clawing shadowing with wounds. I know you don't have the bracers but still, I believe that to be lower than it should be. You had a little bit of time over capped on runes, even if you have to cap runic it's worth capping runic over capping runes. On top of this I believe a lot of your dmg loss comes from your owner you didn't Apoc until 19 seconds in, and didn't soul reaper until 10 seconds in, which even if you had the worst RNG possible you can cast it 100% of the time at 8 seconds in with lust.

Hiya Dr. 


That's odd that it's showing I'm using Old War, considering after reading a guide, I invested into roughly 1,000 Prolonged Powers. Kind of sad that it was 10 seconds into the fight. Jesus. If I'm not mistaken, it's pull army on 6 seconds on timer, around 2 seconds, transform Timmy, pre-pot, Prolonged of course, Summon Gargoyle, Apply outbreak, festering until 4+ wounds, soul reaper, Apoc? 


Hitting the dummy I can already tell an increase in my DPS. For whatever reason I had tunnel vision I suppose.

It can happen with unholy. There is (compared to other specs) quite a bit to manage and keep track of. Many find add ons can help so you don't lose track of certain things.

@Supryia 6 wounds is the max and minimum you should apoc with, according to the krosus log you soul reapered at 10 seconds, and Apoced at 19 seconds which is odd. Just to go over my opener with you Army at 5 (unless lust will not be used on pull, then i save until lust) Timmy+prepot at 1 seconds>plague>gargoyle>FS>FS>(if at 6 wounds) Soul reaper> Apoc   If not at 6 wounds I'll deathcoil so my pet gets more energy to cleaver more which increases his likely hood of giving me an extra wound, plus with 4p deathcoil is a 50/50 to apply a wound.

      Hi everyone! This is my first time playing endgame content, thanks to some veteran friends who invited me to play with them. I started with a Fury Warrior, and now that I feel comfortable, I started logging the runs. 

      Here is a part of Antorus Normal ( I accidentaly deleted the file later which included the rest of the bosses :( )

      Would anyone please take a look at it to see where I have room for improvement (probably everything) and how can I tackle those issues?

      PD: Im lacking one of the BiS leggos, and ever since I have the Convergance of Fates trinket, I lost my rotation, cant seem to find when to fire each ability now.

      <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.

      Hello fellow warriors. I'm looking for some input on my DPS and my issues with it. I currently sim 1.8m on Raidbots, but I'm only able to pull 1.2-1.3m consistently. I feel like I have a good grasp on the rotation: 100Rage Rampage > BT > RB/FS > RB/FS > BT > Rampage. I pop my CDs (all 3) either before my first Rampage or right after I use Rampage for two Rampage in a row. Odyn's Fury comes right after my Rampages with Battle Cry. 
      I finally got my Pantheon trinket last week and it killed my haste. It's down to 20% from 25%, which didn't make my DPS drop (it went up 100-300k). I have my 4 piece and BiS Leggos. I plan on TRYING to replace my belt with a Haste one (if I can get one to drop). 
      Here are my character's logs:
      I don't have an updated raid to go on since I forgot to log my last Normal.
