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.

      We're a close-knit guild that hangs out in Discord a lot, joking, playing alts, Mythic+, other games or just hanging out. Fun guild events happen monthly!

      Overall, we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other. (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)

      New, returning and veteran players welcomed.

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      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.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Hello there!

      <Shadow> on Argent Dawn has been going since 2009. We are a close-knit community and strongly believe in recruiting people who will fit in with us rather than just whoever is topping the meters. We also believe that having a busy RL life with job/family/social commitments and committing to Mythic raiding as a hobby we're all passionate about are not mutually exclusive. We are looking to bolster our line-up to push for Cutting Edge in Antorus.

      About us
       
      We progress raid Thursdays and Sundays, 20:00-23:00 and 19:30-22:30 respectively (all times server time)
      We have a non-mandatory farm raid Fridays at 20:30 that socials and alts are welcome to
      We use Discord for voice communication and have an active server to hang out, chat, and organise M+ runs
      We maintain a mature environment - having a laugh is great, but bullying, endless meme-spamming and the like are not welcome
      We believe in learning from your mistakes - you will never be yelled at, but you will be asked whether you know what you did wrong and how you can fix it
       

      What we expect from recruits
       
      Sign up to raids ahead of time and give us a heads-up in case of longer absences
      Be there 15 minutes before raid start and bring your own consumables as back-up to feasts and cauldrons
      Do your homework - research encounters thoroughly and understand them
      Understand and know how to play your class
      Have Discord installed and a working microphone, ready to speak when required but without cluttering up comms with chatter
      You don't need to grind to the point of burn-out, but keep up with AP traits and do M+ to hone your skills and supplement your gear
      Be a team player and bring a positive attitude. Wipes happen in Mythic. Constructive feedback is great, backseat raid leading is not.


      What we are currently looking for

      A rule that applies to all potential recruits is: We do not recruit for the bench, but we will always take the team that is most likely to defeat the boss and cannot promise everyone they will always be in for every fight. When things are equal in terms of performance and required composition, we much prefer to rotate people in and out over benching someone for an entire night.
      One Healer - Paladin preferred, but any class that isn't priest will be considered
      One Tank - Bear, Brewmaster or Blood DK
      Melee DPS - got one spot for a Rogue
      Ranged DPS - Boomkins, Shadow Priests, Warlocks and Hunters

      If this sounds like the guild for you, check us out at shadow-wow.enjin.com or contact the Co-GMs Alec#2922 and NevNev#2669 for more info!

      See you in Antorus!

We have years of raiding experience and a great atmosphere in our raids that we value a lot, successfully maintain and are very proud of. We appreciate a good joke, friendly banter and even a good pun!

You come prepared, repaired and bearing a good joke for the night and are able to listen/talk using our voice communications. Patience and a good sense of humor are crucial!   Since we reside on an RP server, some of our members are RPers and some are not - which means you are not obligated to RP but you may not disturb or insult in any way others that do so. You shall always remember that you represent our guild when you are out in the wilderness or in the cities and shall behave accordingly.     What our GOALS are Stormguards ultimate goal is to clear each current content tier on mythic difficulty while maintaining a good and friendly atmosphere. We raid 3 times per week: Wednesday, Thursday and Monday evenings from 20.00 to 23.00 server time. We do not normally extend over the raid-end time, unless it is the last encounter and it is agreed with all the raid members. We require our members to attend minimum of 85% of the raids.     For SOCIAL members: We are always welcoming social members. To fulfill social member requirements you actually have to be social!
