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)

      <Pickle Palace> is a recently formed guild on Illidan, but is made up of veteran players who wanted to take a step back from semi-hardcore raiding. We are currently raiding Mythic Antorus (9/11), with our goal being to finish it out before the end of the expansion. Our community is actively playing outside of raid time, pushing M+ and hanging out on discord.

      We raid on a 2 day schedule. Our raid days are Tuesday and Wednesday 9-12 EST. And will be adding a 3rd raid day for BfA! (Thursday or Monday)

      We are currently recruiting,

      All Exceptional Ranged DPS
      &
      Shaman w/ offpsec heals

      Expectations
      Have a great attitude every night. Be prepared for every raid; this includes purchasing consumables and studying encounter strategies. We provide feast/codex/flasks other consumables are your responsibility Zero tolerance policy for criticizing others' performance. Officers will take care of it, worry about yourself and yourself only. Be critical of your performance and take time outside of raiding hours to analyze warcraftlogs for personal improvement. Have fun. We love playing with each other in a friendly, team-oriented, boss-crushing atmosphere -- and you should too! Must be able to tolerate adult language

      Hi everyone. I just killed HC Varimathras and I was surprised by my low damage. There was not second time warp because we used the first one at 20% HP but I think I should get higher numbers. Can anyone tell me what did I do wrong? Was it really only in TW? I do not think so :/.

      Looking for a fun, casually serious progression guild? Hordeland Security could be your new home! We started at launch, and have raided on Blackhand, Baelgun, and now Turalyon. 

      We currently raid on Tuesdays and Thursdays 7:00- 9:15 Central Time. We understand that no one has an unlimited amount of time to play. We raid with a fun, casual, yet goal oriented focus; we achieve AotC in current content and then progress into Mythic. We also have a few that pvp, and we've been known to also do mog/achievement runs.
      Interested? Drop us a line!
