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.

https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/compare/3qv2fyWXnhACRGKt/3qv2fyWXnhACRGKt#fight=29,29&source=3,39&type=casts&by=source

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)

      I feel like I should be performing better as a frost mage at my specific level. If some of you don't mind taking a look at my logs and letting me know what I could do to improve, it would help me out a lot. 
      A lot of people have told me once i get bracers and shard that my dps will normalize for my ilvl. Is this true? I follow the standard for frost mage st rotation: dont eat Ice-lance procs, don't waste insta flurries, spend flurries by frostbolt>flurry>Ice-lance, etc. If I am missing something, please let me know. 
      Here are some logs to look at.

      After today's nerf to Tier-20 (ToS) the balance druid still goes 4 - T20  and 2 - T21 or we will now take the 4 pieces from T21?
      Thank you!

      Hi guys, I got some issues with my dps,
       
      I'm struggling to maintain over 650k dps...
       
      I'm new to fury warrior, was a mythic raider with my assassination rogue but... with the warrior it seems like I'm not doing something well...
       
      Here is what I do :
       
      OPENER
       
       
      Charge -> AVATAR+BC+Berserktroll -> BT -> RB -> RP -> OF …
       
       
      Trying to maintain enrage with BT or RP > RB > etc.. (normal rotation)
       
       
      I’m always tring to use RP at 100% rage,
       
       
      Do I have to clip it with BT ?
      I mean, when I’m enraged, my rotation is :
       
       
      RP (100% rage) -> RB -> BT -> RB > RP(100% rage)… with my +15% crit fillers
      I’m trying to pop OF everytime that I’m enraged (with BC if possible),
       
       
      I don’t have any set bonuses. No COF and no “good trinkets”…
       
       
      Execution phase :
      BT > EXEC EXEC… > BT > EXEC EXEC…
       
       
      I can’t link my armory…
       
       
      I’m Moca, War fury from SARGERAS EU
       
       
      Am I missing something ?
       
      I think that I'm supposed to be way higher, like 850k+...
       
      Thank you !
       
      Sorry, I'm french and new to fury, if you got some questions, don't hesitate :)
