sub dps : trink/leggie dependent?

7 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

So, I've been rather disheartened by my current DPS as a sub rogue in tomb. I feel that I have the burst windows down with the rec'd talents, my opener is usually solid unless affected by mechanics, not to mention ilvl, but I'm hitting nowhere near the burst damage of other sub rogues that not only are my ilvl but over 10 or 15 lower - even without the t20 two piece. And not just burst, but overall damage output, I'm nowhere up to par making the numbers that other sub rogues are. 

The only thing that I have noticed when using the compare feature on warcraft logs is : every person parsing above ~850k has the convergence of fates trinket, and the denial of the half giants wrist leggie. (Mantle is also typically what they have too, but I've seen others with the leggies I have of insignia of ravenholdt or valeera legs.)

Is sub's dps right now really that dependent on the uptime of shadow blades as to why we are parsing as top spec for tomb since the class changes? I understand how powerful it is, but the fact of the matter is that RNG has not decided to bestow upon me either the trinket or legendary, so any fight longer than two minutes or so my dps and damage is down the drain. Should I be rolling with different talents to compensate for my lack of these things to get better results? I've played around with not using death from above and it wasn't a gain, as did AMR tell me that it wouldn't be, as well as running sims with my current gear and other talent combos amr always tells me I won't get the best results.

 Or I have wondered, I see people saying about not backstabbing too much. Is it truly a dps gain to just stand there autoattacking? The combo points generated automatically are slow to come when they do, and I fear pooling for that long just autoattacking will result in a damage loss? 

Here is a link to my logs page. https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/us/cenarion-circle/adassos# I have seen an increase with my gain of ilvl, but it's poor and I'm still in the lowest percentiles for spec and ilvl. Any advice or if it truly is based on those rng items would be helpful, thanks.

You're definitely taking a loss w/o either Denial or Shadow Satyr, but your trinkets might be the biggest problem. I'm sure Carrn will have much more insight. 

Also your link is broken - I'm guessing you copied from the run box, there's a %20 at the beginning.

fixed, thanks! I do have Shadow Satyr, I was worried that since they removed the teleport from shadowstrike unless you're in stealth that the energy gain wouldn't be as beneficial? In any case, would replacing Insignia or Valeera be a better choice? I really like the survivability and the stats from the legs, but the ring does contribute to damage.

I'd swap the insignia out for Satyr's for the primary stat gain if nothing else, at least until you get your 4pc t20 going (also going to be a huge increase). what other legos do you have?  And what are your trinket choices?

I can see that you have a lot of Haste... You have way too much haste. Try to get some more mastery and versatility. That will improve your dps a lot :-)

You should definitetly run Shadow Satyr, as the energy regen is still significant enough to make your burst windows easier to manage. However I would imagine running those would make the enveloping shadows talent more attractive as you would be dancing a whole lot more often. This not based on science, more of a feelycraft thing. I think it would be worth trying out the different setups on a dummy or some bosses.

My only other legendaries are Prydaz and the Outlaw boots. As for trinkets, aside from my 915 socketed infernal cinders and 925 specter of betrayal that I'm rolling right now, I have an 885 arcanogolem digit and 875 nightblooming frond. I did some sims and it said that my infernal cinders was enough to be an upgrade over the frond at this point but, shucks. It's a pretty steep ilvl difference.

Definitely hoping RNG favors me on that one. Though how much haste is too little, really, I don't want it to be super skewed to where my energy regen and autoattacks slow to a crawl.

 

But once I have the essences to upgrade my shadow satyr, I will definitely switch it back and see if I see some improvement.

      Hi guys, I'm new here in Icy Forums but always checked the site for information, you guys do an awesome job. I'm dpsing in Legion as a Ret Pally and I'm having a little issues with dps constancy. I can easily do a burst of 300k in one target fight, but when I look overall my dps is always near 190k. I will put some info to see if you guys could help me to see what I'm doing wrong.
      My armory Armory - Saskov (Gallywix)
        The rotation I usually do is: (burst) Crusade, Greater Judgment,       if AoE:  Wake of Ashes - Divine Storm - Crusader Strike - Divine Storm - Blade of Justice - 
       
      Divine Storm - Crusader Strike
      Single Target: Blade of Justice - Crusader Strike - Templar's Verdict or Justicar's Vengeance when low life Wake of Ashes to fill Blade of Justice cd
      A log of my guild 7/7N EN https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/68NG1QXkH2Zpg4jb/#type=damage-done&source=11 Really don't know what I can do to improve it, I had a complete revamp of stats (I was advised to focus Haste till 22% > Crit = Vers > Mastery)
      I thank you guys since now.

      ok need some help here. I have followed the Fury guide from this site and almost have the stats in alignment with what is suggested from it. I have been trying to upload combat logs from Ask Mr Robot but I keep getting some error where I cannot add my gear to it and then it tells me to close app. So this is what I have so far. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/hyjal/Tabock/advanced
      As for my rotation i hit rampage when it procs all the time, I also use Bloodthirst and rarely use furious slash. I use it more it seems as a filler. I do however use the talented version of Raging Blow, it does a lot of dmg. I really seem to WW a lot when in doubt a lot, a lot. I also use Bladestorm usually when my cd's are active.
      If I make Rampage and Raging Blow up at all times and when I do I see a slight boost in my dps. but otherwise it is trash right now...:(
      So I will need help if somebody would be so kind as to maybe give me some direction toward uploading combat logs. Thank you ahead of time for your help.

      I hope that links right - I have no logs on Butcher/etc, but this is the most stand-still raid encounter I can think of. I hope that's okay! I didn't have to do more than a little moving, and this is pretty indicative of my DPS in most encounters that aren't a lot of cleaving or movement (My dps is pretty bad in fights like Xul'H or Iskar as well, but they're probably a lot harder to read)
       
      Armory: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/bloodscalp/Sunfury/simple
       
      As you can see, I have a mix of mythic dungeon, heroic and normal HFC gear, and a few pieces of baleful I'm not yet rid of.
       
      normalized stat weights given by my own simcraft runs are
       
      Int 1
      Spell Power: .89 (due to archmage's ring)
      Haste: .57
      Mastery: .67
      Multi: .62
      Crit: .57
      Versa: .51
       
      My rotation is the same as the one listed on icy veins/altered time/etc -> I do admit that I make some mistakes, sometimes I split a cast on a crystal and it despawns before the cast lands, sometimes I supernova when I could have held it for my next crystal, etc.
       
      1. Prepot on pull
      2. stack Arcane Charges to 4/let boss get positioned
      3. Drop crystal + arcane power
      4. PoM Arcane Blast + 2 Super novas
      5. Arcane Blast/Arcane Missile to 50% mana
      6. Evocation
      7. Stack AC to 4
      8. Expend missile charges
      9. Arcane Barrage
      10. Repeat 7-9 until evocation has 20sec left
      11. Drop Crystal + charge and commence burn phase
       
      With Supernova being used on cooldown when I'm not really close to 50% mana or have a really good reason to hold it (like crystal coming up soon, or lots of adds soon)
       
      I realize that I only have the 690 ring and don't have any good trinkets, which is a big deal, but that can't account for all of my crappy DPS - I'm looking at my log rankings and they're all <20th percentile for my ilvl, so I must be doing something wrong.
       
      Any help would be great!

      So as my raid starts to progress into mythic (Strength in All @ Stormrage) and I don't have any other rogues on the team to talk to, I want to compare and contrast rotations/openers.  I've been pulling top 5 dps so I know I'm doing something right (69-80k DPS (W/ 726 Ilvl) depending on fight mechanics)(Also keeping near 100% uptimes on rupture and S&D) 

       

      http://us.battle.net...öngers/advanced

       

      Opener: Prep @ -10 sec, Pot + Slice&Dice ~1.5 sec, Shadow Reflect > Ring & Vanish > Rupture > Ambush until Subterfuge is done ( usually burn some CPs for an extra ambush)

       

      Rotation after opener: dump CPs, pool energy until Find Weakness (FW) is nearly down, Shadow dance, Ambushes, wait for FW to go down, Vanish / Shadowmeld + Prep + Ambush (If vanish is 10+ seconds on CD)

      Rinse and repeat.

       

      So my main question here is it better to pair Shadow Reflection with ring or with Shadowmeld(EDIT: ShadowDance), I've experimented with both and they pull similar numbers.
