Hey there,

 

so Ive been turning to icy-veins' guides for advice for some time now, and I hope somebody can help me with my current problem as well. 

Im a Ret-Pally currently 903 equipped with 45 traits. According to the parses on warcraftlogs and also my personal feeling, Im performing rather poorly on NH HC raids. 

 

Here's some info:

Armory: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/azshara/Vorenus/advanced

WoWLog: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/TZ8gBPH37FYKhzv6/

 

Things I am already aware of:

- Zeal isnt optimal for single target (forgot to get tomes to change during raid) 

- Potion of old war is better than Prolonged power (same issue)

- Missing enchants on neck and back

 

Now I see how the above might add up some damage, but it feels like im lacking substantially more. The parse of scorp in particular seemed underwhelming, although this might be because we didnt pull all adds constantly (?). Anyhow, I looked at checkmywow for reference, and I wasted almost no CDs, barely any HP and my HP-Spender with judgement up ratio was between 95 and 100%. 

 

I dont have access to Convergence or 4 set bonus right now, nor any better legendary than Sephuz. 

 

I wanna improve but I am kinda stuck right now, unsure of what to work on. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

 

Regards,

TemNoc

couple issues i see right away your mastery is way to high i have about 19% mastery as ret second your haste you are way over what you need you'll wanna have about 21-22% haste. You will want to get either Crit or Versatility either one will be a solid increase over mastery and the over capped haste. 

Additionally using Zeal is currently outdated information if you would like to maximize your DPS you'll need to run fires of justice.

That stat stick trinket you have could be replaced by a Faulty counter measure which you can macro to Crusade or a Claw of the crystalline Scorpid. Additionally as a paladin you must always have a cool trasmog and best hair ever for ultimate DPS :p

Hey guys,

 

thank you for your replies. So it really came down to bad/unlucky stat distribution on my items.. ?

 

I finally obtained a 4th piece today (albeit on NHC) so I have the 4pc bonus up now. Switched some items and got my haste as low as 21%, with crit and mastery both sitting at 29% and vers at only 5%. Guess Ill have to get some items with a better stat distribution there. 

Ill get my enchants up2date and fish for some better items for next week and see how it goes in NH HC.

 

Thanks for your advice!

You should also try to get the convergence of fates trinket from Elisande the item level of it does not matter its just a super good trinket and essential for any ret paladin by chance you do get it replace the foci.

      SERVER: Illidan
      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time.
      CURRENT PROGRESSION: 8/8N, 6/8H
       
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING (340+ ilvl)
      Healer DPS ABOUT US
      Currently looking for a skilled and laid back Healer & DPS for Heroic and eventually Mythic Uldir.
      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.) 
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW
      Make sure to add me on Battle.net and fill out our app to join us. We look forward to speaking with you!

      Looking for a 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 goal oriented focus, to achieve AotC in current content and then progress into Mythic. We also have a few that pvp, a few more that push M+'s, and we've been known do a few mog/achievement runs.
      Interested? Drop us a line!

      So uhm, first post here and i take the opportunity to take you guys through my fabulous journey into "breaking" the tavern brawl this morning.
       
      So i get on that six-shooter tavern brawl with a mage decklist ( just cause i need them gold from quest ya know :D ) and on my second or third game,
       
      I play Research Project my opponent had then 10 cards in hand and draws for the turn, but no deck refill.... He then plays Barnes, no minion comes up from the battlecry. so it aint a visual bug. start my turn, play another Research Project, my opponent fatigues for 1+2, i can then OTK him with my 0 costs spells due to my 4 copies of Sorcerer's Apprentice.
      Fun fact, the tavern brawl clearly says; Make a six-card deck and duel! Don't worry - when you're out of cards you get a free reload!.
      Can anyone recall to this happening to them or no one had the cojones to mill?

      Hi everyone,

      We are a guild that transferred from Alexstrasza to join the progression raiding scene as that server is very low population now. We are currently 8/8N and 4/8H uldir, and looking to move into heroics soon and mythic just after. 

      We do more than just raid, we love to do keys, transmog runs, and even some PvP. We have a large range of players from several walks of life and have a unique and fun atmosphere, we are friendly and love helping people. 

      We are looking for a few more members for our Sunday/Monday 5-8pm PST, and our tue/third 5-8pm PST. If anyone is interested in raid leading that will work too.

      We are primarily east coast based but have a plethora of players that are on at all times of day.

      Main needs for our raid team:
      ranged dps
      Healers
      Exceptional players

      Of course all players as welcome as we do other guild activities such as world PVP, keys, xmog and other social activities.

      So come join this very active guild and we hope to hear from you.

      If you would like more information please add my btag at Kaatra#5865.

      I look forward to hearing from all of you.
