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.

      Maximum Effort is a new guild on Cenarion circle (A). I was the raid leader for my guild for a long time and we built up a strong raid team. Due to do some dis-agreements between me and the guild leader I was forced to leave. But luckly enough a lot of my team followed me! We're working to build a guild focused around team work and group progression. We love doing mythics, raids, talking and theory crafting about the game!
      We have a very strong-core raid group, capable of clearing heroic and doing some mythic but we're just missing a few people to round it out!
      Raid nights.. Tue/wed 6-830pm server (9:30-11:30 est) Off night Monday 6-830pm server (9-11:30 est)
      Looking for.. -Any and all dps specs
      - Non pally or holy priest healer!
      All raid mats and needs are covered by guild, we run personal look just for the ease of it.
      My btag is Hethrus#1504 if you have questions or wish to try out!

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.

      Hi. This is my armory: Armory
      My logs: Logs
      I think I should do more DPS in whole ToS HC but especially on fallen avatar.
      My questions:
      i have a loot of trinkets and I'm not sure I should use those I use:
      915ilvl Vial of Ceaseless Toxins and 890ilvlUnstable Arcanocrystal
      I have 900ilvl Engine of Eradication
                  870ilvl Bloodthirsty Instinct
                  875ilvl Convergence of Fates
                  870ilvl  Spontaneous Appendages.
      My goal is to get Smoldering Heart And what is the best choice parts of T20 set with this legendary and of course Eye of the Twisting Nether.
      With this ring i have another question should i use Frostbrand? and I think last question for now: when i should use Crash Lightning after 6sec or after some stacks from T20 bonus?
