Balance Help with DPS

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.

      I had some great help with my Fury build from this forum, and have recently attempted to try Arms. 
       
      My guild did a full normal ToS run today, and i captured the logs. I seem to be parsing OK, but it felt clunky.
       
      Here are the logs: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/mfLjRTWXrkb4ZxQY/#boss=-2&difficulty=0&source=20
      Armory:  https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/nagrand/çleâvâgé
       
      Any pointers would be appreciated.

      I've been playing a hunter for as long as I've been playing this game.  And for the first time in raiding, I feel like I am not doing my best and I cannot figure out why. I look at second by second rotations of top parsing hunters. In the past I was the one helping others out and writing small guides on forums...now I'm the one asking for help. 
      Here is a link to Goroth Mythic (my hunter's name is Mezäsu):
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/KjRvcMqbYGrp16Bt#fight=3
      I am very open to criticism and any help anyone has to offer.
      I tried going into the Discord to ask for help there but was not able to get a word in (as the helpers were busy with other people). Hoping I may have better luck here.

      Hola my lovely Warriors,
       
      im pretty new to the game and spend a lot of time checking for possible guides etc. for the arms.
      Right now im sitting at 913 GS. Pls find here the link to my stats: https://worldofwarcraft.com/de-de/character/blackhand/drakmeister
      I would love if you could help me on the following points:
      1.) Which talents are the best? I started with Lvl45 talent -> First one  and lvl 75 talent-> first one.
      I met some people who told me if i go for single target dmg like TOS is most likely then i should switch to "REND" and "Might oif titan"....
      Right now i have not found the best choices for me. Looking forward to hear your comments.
       
      2.) My stats: See on the link above my Stats. I'm kind of unable to reach more mastery to increase my damage. What do you guys suggest?
      3.) The f.king Rotation / Priority on my skills:
      i guess im doing a lot lot lot of mistakes when it comes to use my skills. Right now i play as follows:
       
      i open with Charge, followed by rend and then CS. After this im using Battle cry and Bladestorm.
      Then it comes to the usual rotation and i use CS followed by MS and filled with slam until i getr a proc for my CS. If i get it i use it and use MS after.
      i try to have rend always on the boss. ( i'm not able to hold iut because of boss movement and other stuff).
       
      YOu guys think this use of skills is ok or do you have any changes for me? am i using my priorities right? (Using CS when i get a proc followed by MS??)
      Right now my DPS at any boss is way too low and i have to improve.
       
      Please let me know you honest comments and help me to get a better arms!! :)
       
      Thank you very much in advance. Looking forward to your comments,
       
      Regards,
      Drakmeister
       
      @EDIT: Let me know if you need any additional informations!
