Fury DPS assistance!

3 posts in this topic

Hello y'all, 

So I'll cut right to the chase. I feel like I'm under performing. Or I could be doing just fine with my current gear/stats (SimCraft may have given me unrealistic expectations).

I have decent stats, draught and convergence, and my 4 piece. These are all on the lower side, so I think that would be one way to improve my DPS, but that's not what I'm here for. I ran a Sim today and it states that under ideal conditions and a perfect run, I should be doing around 900k, with an initial burst of 1.7k, and a couple peaks around a mil. I don't see these numbers, especially the peaks of 1 mil, while I run though, which leads me to my original point of me thinking I'm doing something wrong.

One thing someone will probably point out is that I wasn't using pre-pots on either of those. That'll change in the future. 

 

My rotation is based off of the Fury Discord guide.

Opener - Charge/BT/BC/Rampage/Drought/RB

I'll usually then BT or Rampage based on rage, OF, and then go into a priority system of Enraged RB > BT > FS > RB

Rampage at 100 rage.

 

At execute phase, my execute rotation is:

Execute/FS/BT in that order to keep myself at 100 rage for Frothing. While this is what the Fury Discord states, I tend to not get a ton of Execute damage on the boss and feel this is one area I could be doing something wrong.

 

On add fights, I know that I don't incorporate Whirlwind enough into my rotation, and that's something I need to be a bit mindful of. But after I burst, I tend to drop down at a steady rate. I don't usually see my DPS jump back up unless I Drought (which makes sense), but when I'm doing my standard rotation I can't keep my numbers up. Krosus should be a straight forward fight, but if you look at the logs, my dps drops to around 500k. Am I screwing something up? Or am I pulling comparable DPS to a fury warrior with 897 ilvl. 

Thank you all for any help you can provide to me. I greatly appreciate it. I just want to bring honor and glory to all of my warrior brethren out there.

Hey Nesmuricus,

Something I noticed that would help is changing around your opener a little, I saw that you put OF outside of your BC window, should always save OF to use in a BC window if you can help it.

But yeah for your opener, what I do is Pre pot Old War, Charge and pop my cool downs macro to activate Avatar and BC. Then you want to rampage to get enrage, then Odyn's Fury and then you pop draught of souls. After that you should have enough of a BC window left to get off a BT for a guaranteed enrage, then raging blow, furious slash. Then continue the rotation.

To really boost your execute phase, keep an eye on BC cool down around 25% of boss health, if BC is about to come off, save it and when you hit 20%, BC, BT, and then spam executes fitting in a last BT just before BC ends, then continue the rotation of Execute, BT, RB, while dumping all rage into execute whenever you are enraged and again when BC comes up do the same as before (and do everything you can to keep up juggernaut stacks!! will be critting huge with them).

Hope this helps

Good afternoon, Nesmuricus.

First off, I want you to do me a favor - stop taking simulationcraft results as an end-all-be-all expectation of reality. SimulationCraft is a calculator of perfection within given parameters. Like any calculator, it always gives the correct answer but it requires you to input the right question, if that makes sense. (Hinting at a custom APL here, but that's the least of your concerns right now.)

SimulationCraft is a great tool when used properly and for the right reasons. (Calculating stat weights, seeing which piece can theoretically give better numbers, etc.) Using it to see how much DPS you should be doing is not what it's meant for. You will never reach a perfect situation and, as such, you will always be under the projected numbers. Comparing yourself to perfection will only aggravate you. Stop doing that.

===================================

I looked over your Heroic Krosus log that you provided. A couple points here and there:

  • As noted, you didn't prepot. Two potions used can come out to be about 10% of your overall damage. It's a lot so make sure to use two.
  • Your Enrage up time is decent; around 80%.
  • You have your legendary cloak. The only thing I noticed is you let the buff fall off for a short period of time. This is a rotation problem. (You didn't die, so you missed a BT cast when you needed to maintain the 4% buff).
  • The biggest problem is you're missing a lot of Raging Blow casts. You missed about 25% of your potential casts (hitting 41 out of a possible 55). That's a lot of missed damage.

With the last two points in mind, it seems your issues primarily revolve around a misunderstanding in your ability priority. A lot of players get "rotation" and "priority" mixed up, thinking they mean the same thing, when they don't.

With your 4PC and Draught, your opener looks to be correct.

  • CDs (Avatar / Battle Cry) -> Rampage -> Draught of Souls -> Raging Blow -> Bloodthirst.

If you have Hero rolling on your opener you can continue that opener with Odyn's Fury. Without Hero, though, you'll want to save Odyn's for your next Battle Cry Window (while using your Convergeance of Fates).

A note on Odyn's Fury - only use it during a Battle Cry window (while using your Convergeance of Fates). If you're not using CoF, you'll want to use it during a Battle Cry window (primarily) or use it in place of a Furious Slash when you're Enraged and have Frothing Berserker up.

Outside of this you have a pretty simple priority (single target):

  • Raging Blow (If Enraged)
  • Rampage (Only at 100 Rage)
  • Raging Blow
  • Bloodthirst
  • Furious Slash

Again, this is a priority system; not a flat rotation.

===================================

All of this information (save the log review) can be found in Archimtiros's 7.2 Fury Warrior Guide over on MMO-Champion.

I hope this helps. If you should have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask. Get your spell priority under control and your numbers will get better.

      My priority skills: rampage > BT > RB > FS
      So rotation like this: BC - BloodBath - ramp - odyn's fury - BT - RB - ramp - BT - RB - RB - fs .... BC - ramp - etc
      also I user free excute procs ofcourse.
       
      Simcraft show me that my best DPS must be near 1 860 000. But in fact my dps near 1.4M (maximum). 
      As you can see "good player" do much better dps then I with same iLvL.

      Hi everyone,
      I, like many others, are trying to maximize DPS for their respective classes, mine in particular being ret paladin.
      In general, it seems like there are several sources of information for dps for each class.
      Icy Veins Mr Robot Raidbots (Simulation Craft) Warcraft Logs Each with its own set of criteria as to what determines high dps. And I find inconsistency when bouncing between the different sources. I want to understand what am I missing when it comes to each. I will lay out what I currently understand, and would like some feedback as to what I may not be considering in each as well as some advice as to what other options I could be exploring (resources) to further the insight into whats applicable for my current state.
      Icy Veins
      For Icy Veins, in particular, the stat weights, are mostly vaguely determined. From the ret guide:
       
      If I am reading this right, its Mastery >= Haste > Ver >= Crit = Str
      Mr Robot
      I use the addOn and I subscribe for the Best In Bags function. When I plug in my information in, the site recommends that I go with my 2pce t20 and balance around my legendaries with a focus on haste pieces (haste gems are emphasized).
      https://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/simulator/report/a42136294c7f40b2b7ee78023306d786
      Stat weights as listed in MrRobot:
      MrRobot Stat Weights
      From what I am seeing, Crit is most emphasized, and the one crit gem + ring crit enchants were originally recommended by MrRobot here. Also another notable thing here is haste being way behind crit's potential.
      RaidBots (Simc)
      For RaidBots, I use the addOn, and play around with various items I hoard, and use the stat weights functions. Generally the feedback I get here are to stick with the current gem setup and with regards to stat weights, emphasize at my current setup with crit. It also says I should drop some of my high ilvl pieces (935 head, and 960 chest) for 4pce (915 head, lfr 890 chest)
      Gear simc:
      https://www.raidbots.com/simbot/report/d3Qbkf6nqpoP4bxQ9YB2m
      Stat Weights:
      https://www.raidbots.com/simbot/report/6NkVYwEaTW26FxD4wBwey4
      Vers -> crit -> mastery -> haste -> str
      (versitality first?)
      Warcraft Logs
      I mostly use Warcraft Logs to check what the top dps players (ret pallys) are hitting and what setups are they running. I don't want to specifically link player armories in here, but upon some investigation, you'll find most are just stacking haste
      ---
      I understand stat weights are relative, however it seems like everyone has different priorities, one says mastery, another vers, another crit, another haste?
      Help me understand.
      Thanks,
      Exploit
