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)

      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.
