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.

      It's a few months later (what with delays and distractions and getting old and all that), but I just wanted to start by saying THANK YOU to those who helped me with amazing advice on levelling my fire mage alt. It made all the difference - you guys rock.
      I finally dinged 110 the other day and went into a few instances and raid finders with her. As a caster noob - I main a feral - there are a few things I've noticed and am unsure about.
      The guide here on Icy Veins recommends Dragon's Breath for AoE of 3+ grouped mobs. I may have overlooked something, but I can't for the life of me find anything on the *range* of Dragon's breath. The animation makes me think I need to stand right in front of the mobs to hit them, but that can't be right, I'm supposed to be ranged and standing a good bit away - aren't I?  During levelling, I've gotten used to casting Living Bomb regardless of how many mobs I'm facing. The guide has it exclusively as an AoE ability. Is that true, or is it worth casting on a single target (boss)? Does meteor "work" on huge bosses who are standing behind a ledge/cliff, in the manner of Engine of Souls (Desolate Host) or Garothi Worldbreaker? I try placing it as close to the edge of the "cliff" as possible, does that mean it'll hit the boss?

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting range DPS & Tank. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 7/11 Mythic Antorus. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:15 PM until 12:15 AM Eastern. Currently, our main goal is to push Mythic progression & finish out the raid before next patch, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us, because we will not be doing Heroic or anything like that.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated. In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      As far as classes are concerned, at this time, we do not have ANY rogues, DPS warriors, havoc DH, or wind walkers.
      If you are interested, add me to battle tag and we will talk (violentravi#1826), I will accept mostly anyone who wants to be a bench or casual, but for raiding purposes, you must be able to provide logs.  If you cannot get ahold of me in game, I work nights, please shoot me an email, I check it at work often and I can get ahold of other officers via text/discord if it's urgent! violentnacho@gmail.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.
