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Additionally using Zeal is currently outdated information if you would like to maximize your DPS you'll need to run fires of justice.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

      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.

      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletags: Vims#21684 Azkey#21565

      Hi, so I'd like to think that have got the fury rotation down, I've been using the Icy veins guide and some pointers from MMO-Champion. I don't think I have any big issues apart from the BC with CoF trinket, like if it's worth waiting for other cooldowns like OF to be up with BC, that's my main question. 
      So I have linked my logs for some PuG raiding the other week, so if someone is up for the task of analyzing them for me, that'd be great. Sorry if my sentences are wrong or weird, I'm really hungover...

      ( In Goroth Normal, you will see some downtime in the middle of the fight. I got disconnected that is the answer:/ )

      Thanks, this is my first post here so if I'm missing anything please comment! :)
