Hello! Just another desperate warrior, seeking to improve in any possible way!

Im Seagaard, from Ravencrest:

Im struggling doing as much DPS as i would want, and i am looking into possible changes. I know a 4 set bonus will be an obvious improvement, but i just dont think that is the only thing that makes my dps lack. 

Here is a log of me wiping (alot) with my guild on Avatar.

I know its not much, but there is a couple of good tries in there. 

Any help or criticism is appreciated :)

Good afternoon, Seagaard.

I want to apologize for not getting to your thread sooner; as I've explained to others today I've had a busy week and simply haven't had the opportunity to sit down and address these threads adequately. With that being said, I hope you're able to find this reply and I hope it helps.


Honestly, gauging wipes on logs is not the best. You can die at various times, numbers are a bit skewed due to deaths, problems overall in the encounter can force you out of an ideal situation. There's a lot so.... using wipes to evaluate performance is far from ideal. That aside, however, I was able to find an adequate log of yourself.

Goroth Heroic (4:14), September 6, 2017

With this log in mind, I've taken note of a couple things:

  • 100% on all consumables. Good job. Rune, food, flasks, and two potions. The only very minor thing I would change here is your food choice. You used 375 Mastery (which isn't bad) but the 500 strength from the Suramar feast is better.
  • You do not have your set bonuses from Tier 20. The 4PC is a significant damage boost that you don't have access to.
  • Your legendaries aren't the best; they're not bad, but they're not the best. Ideally you'd want the helm and a good secondary (which is usually the ring but as long as it's not a useless legendary it should be fine). The helm, though, is something you really want.
  • Your trinkets, on this log, are horrible. You have a Versatility stat stick and possibly the worst crit trinket you can have. I realize the loot gods may not be favorable but you really want to find better trinkets. Stat sticks, Engine of Eradication, Cradle of Anguish. If you find a stat stick, make sure it's Mastery and not Versatility.

As far as your rotation / priority execution goes, it's pretty clean with the gear you have. The only thing I found was that you mis-cast a Mortal Strike in your Execute phase just once. That's not bad at all. (You cast Mortal Strike with no stacks of Executioner's Precvision up). Everything else was on point.

So, in short, hope you get the legendary helm, definitely get your 4PC set bonus as a priority, and find some better trinkets. Once your gear is squared away, you'll find your numbers even higher than what they are. (With everything pointed out here, you still managed to hit almost 1M DPS; you're doing fine).

      Hi and, first of all, thanks for your time. 
      I´m back to WoW after around 3 years, and I´m feeling quite confused yet. My main is a Hunter. I left it during WoD as a BM. Now I´m back, still with WoD expansion, and I feel the class has changed a LOT. No traps, quite a different composition, etc. 
      I´d like some help in order to set my talents and rotations. My intention atm, as lvl 100, is to finish questing Draenor (still quite a bit to do here) and then buy Legion and try to level up before the expansion comes. I like soloing (I guess BM should be my choice, but I´m here to hear your opinions!!) and I´ll try to avoid skipping content. I´m not in a hurry, just want to enjoy the whole lore-and-questing all the way up.
      Thanks again for your help!!!!

      I need guidance!
      I'm a returning player from the MoP era, I've played throughout TBC and beyond and currently I'm a iLvl 890 Mage. I haven't played any of Legion launch content, no 7.1/7.2 content when I first started playing again. Currently I've been doing all of the broken isles quests, currently on the last which is Suramar and my entire Broken Isles Rep standing is at Honoured across the board at this moment in time (btw this rep wall for flying is a joke).
      So here I am questing, doing dungeons and LFR. Multi-tasking multiple things, I've just received the last follower for the class hall quests, it's so overwhelming and I have no idea what I need to do to make sure I'm not missing out any tasty loot because I'm an avid completionist and wouldn't want to miss a mount or title or anything haha! But like I said, I'm so very overwhelmed by everything and I don't want to be doing things that I don't really need to do unless I get something shiny. Am I gonna be screwed if I skip the Broken Shore? Do i just go straight into argus? I love leveling alt characters but if i do all this, and have to do it again on an alt, I would be so angry. Obviously the Legion flying will benefit the alt, but if I can just skip to Argus(?), is it really worth it? Like jump straight into argus if its not gonna damage my alt toons chances of getting gear? WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING AND WHAT AM I WASTING MY TIME ON? - is the question I'm asking here. I hate missing a trick, please halp ! D;

      So, I'm currently maining Blood DK and that's the spec that I've gotten my 4 legends on. I do occasionally use UH and was wondering which of my legends would be most effective for it. Just a foreword, all of the gear that the legends replace is about equal; all 915-920 and don't cause any major stat changes so its not like using one legend over another causes me to use a bad piece. I have Soul of the Deathlord, which is the one I use most on UH, and I have  Shackles of Bryndaor, Archimonde's Hatred Reborn, and Prydaz, Xavaric's Magnum Opus. Does the Shackles passive work on UH, if so, could that be a better boost for Val'kyr[Dark Arbiter Talent] (b/c you can cycle more RP)? Other than that I'm just wondering which out weighs the other, STR or the secondaries?
      Edit: and just in case it makes a difference, my talent build is;

      Hey guys,
      I'm new to playing affliction lock and ranged DPS in general really. Can someone help me see why my DPS isn't where it should be? I've changed my stats around and have been playing with my legendaries and rotation but I can't seem to improve. If someone has some ideas it would be much appreciated.
