Hey everyone, new here.

I just got done with Normal Nighthold with my guild and my DPS.. well sucks. Can anyone look at my logs and see what's up? Maybe a few pointers?
Thank you!

You are using abilities that you shouldn't be. You aren't using either Hailstorm or Crashing Storm, so you should take Frostbrand off your bar entirely and use Crash Lightning only for heavy cleave and directly after using Feral Spirit. You are utterly neutering your DPS by using those abilities in your regular rotation, especially with Boulderfist. You'll get so many more Stormstrikes off if you don't waste GCD's and maelstrom on abilities that are only used with specific builds.

I've gone on the record before as saying, Boulderfist does not play nice with Fury of Air. The maelstrom generation is not as reliable; however this is not as serious of an issue and if you are comfortable with it, you can use this build. I have seen some very high parses using this combo. It's just that people started using FoA when they buffed the maelstrom generation on Rockbiter, and Boulderfist didn't get that. It is better overall to use Crashing Storm for the fights when you can use Crash Lightning in AoE.

Start with practicing the right abilities with the correct priority list. If you are going to use Boulderfist, it will be the IV T19 4-piece rotation, except that maintaining Fury of Air is your #1 priority.

  1. Cast Boulderfist Icon Boulderfist to generate Maelstrom, if the buff is not currently active, or you are about to hit 2 charges.
  2. Cast Feral Spirit Icon Feral Spirit on cooldown. Follow this immediately with a Crash Lightning Icon Crash Lightning cast to activate  Icon Alpha Wolf.
  3. Maintain the Flametongue Icon Flametongue buff.
  4. Activate  Icon Doom Winds whenever available, try to have Stormstrike Icon Stormstrike available with this.
  5. Cast Stormstrike Icon Stormstrike with Stormbringer Icon Stormbringer active.
  6. Cast Boulderfist Icon Boulderfist if under 50 Maelstrom.
  7. Cast Stormstrike Icon Stormstrike on cooldown.
  8. Cast Lava Lash Icon Lava Lash if above 70 Maelstrom.

I have a similar question so I will ask it here.

I was going with the standard build from icy-veins (I mean FoA and Windsong and Ancestral) but when I get the Legendary finger I simed my char and the Hailstorm - Boulderfist - Crash Lightening showed higher damage.

My question is what SimulationCraft shows is right or should I go for Standard build. I have 2-set btw.

Thanks.

I'm a Boulderfist / Crashing Storm fan, mainly because I have Emalon's Crashing Core but also because it's the most fun Enhancement build and it still performs well. Haven't been able to find an FoA build that I like and haven't been able to get the performance to measure up. I don't have the legendary ring or bracers, but even with my gear Hailstorm is fairly close as well, though I'm no longer as good at it as I was before 7.1.5 when I was playing with Hailstorm every day.

      Hey everyone,
      So, I think my problem is my gear as I have been trying to rack my brain on why my dps is not that great in raids. Some of it I admit is probably not sticking 100% to my rotation, but any help/suggestions would definitely be appreciated.
      You can find the analyzer for the most recent log here: https://wowanalyzer.com/report/4K3dCR86gfMv2Njt/2-LFR+Antoran+High+Command/Darkbriar
       
      Thanks in advance! 😎

      SERVER: Illidan
      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time.
      PROGRESSION: 2/11M
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING*
      Tank All DPS (Healer offspec preferred but not required) Possibly accepting other roles! ABOUT US
      Now recruiting for BFA!
      Currently looking for skilled and laid back Tank & DPS for the upcoming expansion.
      We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out. 
      Fun guild events are scheduled often!
      Overall, we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
      GOALS FOR BFA
      In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic. 
      This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.) 
      SCHEDULE UNTIL BFA**
      Fridays currently mandatory for core raiders for a partial Heroic clear.
      Sundays reserved for non-mandatory misc WoW activities (M+, leveling alts for BFA etc.) or other non-WoW related events.
      If ilvl is high enough, you can join for Friday (950+) and Sunday on any character, not just the one you want to play in BFA.
                *The class you play in BFA can be different from what you play now; we will be flexible until the expansion hits.
                **Schedule subject to changes.
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW
      Make sure to add me on Battle.net and/or fill out our short 6 question app to join us. We look forward to speaking with you!
      Start the app here!

      Hi all,
      Im not sure where to post this but im hoping someone can help or at least point me in the right direction.
      TL;DR - My DPS is awful and i want to increase it
      I played fire & frost spec back in cata upto 85 and have recently got back into WoW again and finally realised what people talk about when they play "end game" i wish id known about raiding sooner!
      However, My DPS isnt great at all im eq 959 ilvl but my DPS comes out as low as 8-900 sometimes or i can hold a steady 1.1-1.2M. Simc comes out around 1.7M (obviously in a perfect world) but i still feel im doing something wrong.
      Ive watched videos, read forums and im sure my rotation is right. Im using Flask, Food and Runes and Pre-potting. I have some logs here of garothi.
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/XRqCaL6jFVpW9MnG#fight=5&type=summary&source=23&view=events
      and this is my Raider.io - https://raider.io/characters/eu/twisting-nether/Buksh
      Not sure if ive posted this in the right place OR if ive given enough info to help. but anything would be hugely appreciated.
