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.

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which semi-recently transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some shit.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are in need of any competent DPS, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.

      Guild: Dawn of the Dead | http://www.dotd.org   Faction: Horde | Server: Zul'jin (PvE) | Timezone: EST   Current Progression: 4/8M Uldir   We've been raiding max size raids continuously since WoW has been released and are the only guild to have done so here on Zul'jin. We have strong leadership, no drama, and plans to keep raiding for years to come. Unlike many guilds, we're not recruiting for the short term, and we don't over-recruit.   Website: www.dotd.org
        Raid Times: Our schedule is 8-11 EST Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.   Needs: We are a small guild, and we expect high attendance. As such, we recruit people to raid, and desire people who can step in and contribute immediately. We don’t recruit people to sit around, so all spots are for raiders who can expect to be in most every raid.   We are currently looking to add skilled and reliable:   Ranged DPS:
      High: Warlock
      Medium: Mage, S.Priest, Boomkin
      1 Healer:
      High: MW Monk
      *ALL exceptional applicants will be considered regardless of the class.   What we ask of you:   Effort: Not all applicants come from highly progressed guilds, and that’s okay, but it does mean that you need to be prepared. We recruit the player, not the gear, but we do ask that you have some current experience and be a minimum iLvl of 370. You need to have the best gear available to you, (BoE, Crafted) with gems and top end enchants. You also need to be able to display an understanding of your class mechanics, role in a raid, and ability to learn new fights.   Attitude: It’s a game. We play for fun. How you fit in with the guild is taken very seriously. We’re a bunch of mostly 18-30 guys and girls who have fun playing together. While we have a good time, we also know when it’s time to buckle down and work hard.   Skill: The best way to determine skill is to see you in a raid. Because we don’t wish to have anyone transfer that we’re not serious about, be able to express your knowledge of your class and why you’re an exceptional player who would be an asset and is worth a shot. Gear will come with time. Skill will not. Impress us with your knowledge of your class and gameplay mechanics. Feel free to share any logs, theorycrafting, or other work you've done.   Commitment: We make a commitment to you, and ask you to do the same to us. A raid takes a team of more than 20 individuals working together. We rely on you to show up to raids, research your class and new fights, respect your fellow players, and notify us when you are unavailable. You rely on us for gear, experience, and coordination. It's a large investment of our time to train and gear new players, and we ask the same investment on your part so that we can each benefit.   We have a variety of informational resources available to prospective applicants on our web site: http://www.dotd.org-- please refer to our "Applications" forum for detailed information. Also feel free to visit us on WoWProgresss for more information and kill videos! http://www.wowprogress.com/guild/us/...wn+of+the+Dead   Should you wish to speak to someone in-game, please don't hesitate to reach out to an officer directly, whisper Xanah (Xana#1662) or Jeare (Jeare#1759).   We look forward to hearing from you soon!
