Lacks DPS drood balance

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I know that this is the kind of topic that are created everyday, but I wasnt able to find the answer I was looking for, so I decided to create an account to ask you guys some questions.

I am currently playing drood balance, its new to me, but I am not new to the game, I made some nice achievements last year with my guild. I am not a really good player but I am definitly not the worst one.
 

Here is what bothers me: I LACKS DPS so much. I mean, im 907 ilvl now. Some stats are bad, I have 2 PVP trinkets only one legendary(not a good one) and miss the last legendary weapon trait ...But I dont think this can explain why, while training on the dummy?(I dont know if its the good word) I only have like 550000 Dps during a 3 minute session. I was not fully optimised (enchants and gems), maybe U can add 50 k dps if you like.

 

Also, I know how to use my spells, I mean, its not the hardest rotation I saw... 

So what I would like to know is can the stats, the bad leg, the bad trinkets and the last talent can explain all this or not? I am starting to be a bit worried and I dont understand What I do wrong if I do... Here is my character page if you want https://worldofwarcraft.com/fr-fr/character/archimonde/hashanou

 

Thank you all for your help, I am waiting for your kind advices :)

I'm not a normal here, but as a current balance druid stat optimizations and good legendaries can make a huge difference in dps. I am 901 ilvl with 2 good leggies and good stat optimizations and i pull around 700-800k dps. This is missing 7 traits as well.

Dummy DPS is best used for the purposes of practicing your rotation, and comparing gear for optimization. Not so much as a measure of performance. So that's the first thing. Second thing, Balance has always been about executing the beginning of the fight and maximizing your cooldown windows, but that's not really the case in Legion. It's a spec that requires continual maintenance and careful balancing of multiple resources, plus the two DoTs that you have available by default. These are some of the common issues:

1) Don't use Incarnation before the pull, that is a mistake. Use it after you apply Sunfire and Moonfire. There is no more DoT snapshot for Balance.

2) Sitting on 3 charges of New Moon. You should spend charges as they are available, unless you are about to have Incarnation available.

3) Letting DoTs drop off. Track them and keep them up on all targets that are in range.

4) Over-capping on Astral Power. Always make sure to spend it either on Starsurge or Starfall depending on the situation.

5) Over-capping on Lunar or Solar Empowerment. This will happen more often with Lunar. Spend that third charge before you use Starsurge again. However, if you have to choose between over-capping Astral Power or wasting a Lunar Empowerment (rare), use Starsurge and waste the empowerment.

Hey there, a bit late but thank you to your answers. I noticed that the legs are really important. I found the 4th better apparently and it made a huge difference. Also the sets seems to make a difference for balance druid. I used ask mr robot to look for bis and this kind of thing, do you think its a good simulator guys(especially for gems and enchants, sometimes it differs from icy veins)
Also thank you for you advices, I must confess I made one of  your "common mistakes" :p, I will try to apply that the next time I train on dumies :p.

My DPS is terrible.. I am lucky if I come in above the heals...  I follow rotation, and build from Icy Veins and have decent gear and 1 legendary (head.) 

 

I am sooooo confused..  :(

      Guild: Dawn of the Dead | http://www.dotd.org   Faction: Horde | Server: Zul'jin (PvE) | Timezone: EST   Current Progression: 8/9M BoD | 2/2H CoS | 8/8M Uldir CE   We've been raiding max size raids continuously since WoW has been released and are the only guild to have done so here on Zul'jin. We have strong leadership, no drama, and plans to keep raiding for years to come. Unlike many guilds, we're not recruiting for the short term, and we don't over-recruit.   Website: www.dotd.org
        Raid Times: Our schedule is 8-11 EST Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.   Needs: We are a small guild, and we expect high attendance. As such, we recruit people to raid, and desire people who can step in and contribute immediately. We don’t recruit people to sit around, so all spots are for raiders who can expect to be in most every raid.   We are currently looking to add skilled and reliable:
      Ranged DPS: High: Shadow Priest, Mage Medium: Warlock 1 Healer:
      High: Resto Shaman, Mistweaver Monk
       
      *ALL exceptional applicants will be considered regardless of the class.   What we ask of you:   Effort: Not all applicants come from highly progressed guilds, and that’s okay, but it does mean that you need to be prepared. We recruit the player, not the gear, but we do ask that you have some current experience. You need to have the best gear available to you with top end enchants and gems where available. You also need to be able to display an understanding of your class mechanics, role in a raid, and ability to learn new fights.   Attitude: It’s a game. We play for fun. How you fit in with the guild is taken very seriously. We’re a bunch of mostly 18-30 guys and girls who have fun playing together. While we have a good time, we also know when it’s time to buckle down and work hard.   Skill: The best way to determine skill is to see you in a raid. Because we don’t wish to have anyone transfer that we’re not serious about, be able to express your knowledge of your class and why you’re an exceptional player who would be an asset and is worth a shot. Gear will come with time. Skill will not. Impress us with your knowledge of your class and gameplay mechanics. Feel free to share any logs, theorycrafting, or other work you've done.   Commitment: We make a commitment to you, and ask you to do the same to us. A raid takes a team of more than 20 individuals working together. We rely on you to show up to raids, research your class and new fights, respect your fellow players, and notify us when you are unavailable. You rely on us for gear, experience, and coordination. It's a large investment of our time to train and gear new players, and we ask the same investment on your part so that we can each benefit.   We have a variety of informational resources available to prospective applicants on our web site: http://www.dotd.org-- please refer to our "Applications" forum for detailed information. Also feel free to visit us on WoWProgresss for more information and kill videos! http://www.wowprogress.com/guild/us/...wn+of+the+Dead   Should you wish to speak to someone in-game, please don't hesitate to reach out to an officer directly, whisper Alloren (Alloren#1606), Xanah (Xana#1662) or Jeare (Jeare#1759).   We look forward to hearing from you soon!
