Lacks DPS drood balance

5 posts in this topic

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..  :(

      Hey everyone,
      So, I think my problem is my gear as I have been trying to rack my brain on why my dps is not that great in raids. Some of it I admit is probably not sticking 100% to my rotation, but any help/suggestions would definitely be appreciated.
      You can find the analyzer for the most recent log here: https://wowanalyzer.com/report/4K3dCR86gfMv2Njt/2-LFR+Antoran+High+Command/Darkbriar
       
      Thanks in advance! 😎
