Yet another help Balance Druid DPS help thread.

As the title says, I need some help with my dps. I feel like i should be doing a lot more. Specially when compared to the top balance druid in my guild, Malakye.

Granted, I do not have the same legendaries, nor are the ones that I have (shoulder (Lady something), belt, boots and haste/crit ring) exceptionally good either. 

Currently I have about 24% haste and 70% mastery. It should be the other way around, but those are the stats that I get when using a 1.2 Haste, 1.1 int and 9.0 Mastery and 0.0 Crit/Vers.

I can push my stats to 32% Haste and 43.5% Mastery at the cost of 3,000 intellect. But I do not think that exchange is worth it. Nonetheless I shall try it tonight on Mythic Chronos.

Here are my warcraft logs:

Here's part of the problem:

https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/compare/CzXyTxr9P3b61haG/CzXyTxr9P3b61haG#fight=20,20&source=17,16&type=casts

51 starfall vs 32

It seems you'r not generating enough AP, or wasting some, which is somehow confirmed by

where we can see you stay few secs sometime @ 100 AP

Malakay legendaries help also a lot, he has a better racial (15% haste) and unlike you, has prepot with a prolonged power.

Hello bobifle,

I think that on those instances where I was capped on 100 AP i was trying to pool AP in preparation to the adds coming forward.

 

The total AP that I wasted was 164 (not a small number) but not absurdly large when compared to 52 wasted AP from Malakye.  Where I see the biggest discrepancy is on the Cast per Minute.

Annabelle (me) 61.00 CPM vs Malakye's 80.4  CPM. However both of our active time is identical at +99.4%. I take the active time to mean time at which a cast was being casted. In other words, neither one of us is running around with arms raised moving from place to place. 

This is another fight, Krosus. Yesterday.

I will go ahead and change my racial and swap-out my gear for more haste next week and see how I fare.  (I did swap out my gear yesterday, but I didnt perform as well as I would have hoped. I was distracted and the RNG Gods didnt treat me kindly).

You raised good counter points. Here's how I see the "problem": Malakye is a very good player, top notch CPM (probably boosted by a high haste score, but not all players can support such build), 90%+ ilevel perf in Mythic (mythic players tend to be in average way better than normal and heroic players).

You may simply suffer from comparing yourself with a top player.

Putting aside legendaries, it's a sum of small details (don't overlook wasted AP). If you want to catchup with Malakye, you'll need to tackle the details because there's nothing else to tackle, you're performing pretty well already.

And the 100$ question : why don't you ask Malakye ? :o)

      CURRENTLY RECRUITING
      Tank ABOUT US
      Now recruiting for BfA!
      Currently looking for a skilled and laid back Tank for the upcoming expansion.
      We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out. 
      Fun guild events are scheduled often!
      Overall, we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
      GOALS FOR BfA
      In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic. 
      This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.) 
      SCHEDULE UNTIL ULDIR*
      Below are our events the beginning weeks of BfA! All events start at 10pm CT.
      Week 1
      August 13th (Mon) - BfA Weekday Leveling Party! August 17th (Fri) - Leveling up in BfA Drinking Party August 19th (Sun) - Leveling up in BfA Non-Drinking Party Week 2
      August 24th & 26th (Fri/Sun) - Mandatory Mythic 0 to prep for Tier 1 *Schedule subject to changes.
