Hi there, I started playing with druid Balance and I feel that I'm not doing as much as I can, I read a lot of guides and still not doing more damage.

Armory: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/azralon/Zulaz/simple

Logs: http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/pu95qir1byqs3pvg/sum/damageDone/?s=443&e=832

 

I open a cast away from lunar then
Pre pot (before pull)

starfall
wrath
Nature's Vigil, Incarnation, Life's Blood, Berserking
Sunfire + Moonfire
Starsurge
Starfire
if I've got a shooting star proc I use starsurge, as the lunar eclipse ends I use Celestial Alignment re-dot and starfire and starsurge, putting a dot just before the aligment ends, then I do the normal rotation and re-dot when the aligment buffed dots ends.

For the normal rotation I put a dot when the eclipse starts and at the end, and use starsurge on cd and cast wrath or starfire depending on the way that the bar is going.

 

So that's what I'm doing, plz help me

I haven't done the two bosses in that log on heroic yet, but I don't think 94k is too bad considering two things: you don't have the meta (big difference), nor do you have 4 set (another pretty big difference).

 

For your rotation, macro your Berserking and Life's blood to Celestial Alignment instead of the others. I've never raided with a toon that had herbalism. Is that off the GCD? If so, make sure your macro is casting Zerk and life blood before CA.

 

I'm a big fan of using treants and HotW for all bosses Durumu and beyond. I know not everyone has done it that way, but it fits for me, given the amount of movement. If you do that, your opening rotation changes quite a bit.

 

Your crit level is still at a point where I do not recommend using an SS proc to enter eclipse. Save it for right after you hit eclipse, then fire away.

 

For Durumu, you had a 75%ish uptime on your DoTs. Work on that.

 

I wouldn't waste a GCD on the DoT as eclipse ends *unless* they're about to expire or when you have upcoming movement.

 

On Durumu specifically, try to stay in an eclipse the whole maze and spam the applicable DoT making sure you're keeping three stacks of lunar showers.

 

Lastly (this one is petty but could make a difference), always cast your eclipsed DoT 2nd when entering eclipse. That way you at least have a stack of lunar shower.

Your rotation is fine. But it's not always about the rotation. It's a lot about when you use your cd's. You will generally want to save them till you have one or two trinket procs up which you can use an addon like tellmewhen to track. DPS as ranged is also a lot about positioning. Lowering the amount of time you have to move to a certain place can really make a change in your dps. For instance when you're fighting jin'rok try to be standing right next to where the first pool spawns so you don't have to stop and run through the whole room to reach the pool and start casting again.  It sucks to have to stop casting just to catch back up with everyone else when you could be laying waste to the boss with non-stop casts. Work on positioning and cd/trinket management and you'll for sure see a DPS increase.

      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, so I'd like to think that have got the fury rotation down, I've been using the Icy veins guide and some pointers from MMO-Champion. I don't think I have any big issues apart from the BC with CoF trinket, like if it's worth waiting for other cooldowns like OF to be up with BC, that's my main question. 
      So I have linked my logs for some PuG raiding the other week, so if someone is up for the task of analyzing them for me, that'd be great. Sorry if my sentences are wrong or weird, I'm really hungover...
