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.

Hiya,

These are the main points you should focus on first:

Increasing drain soul uptime. On my latest Sisters kill (which I didn't play well) mine was 22% higher than yours for a 10 second less fight length. Your Goroth shows the same low uptime.

Tied into this is do not be spamming DoTs and be draining instead. You casted 43 Agonies and I 25 (the same deal with Corruption) and it never dropped for me. If you have to move it's good to be ready to enter a new drain cycle when you land but you either just refresh way too early or move way way too much. If you do have to move think about Portal, Burning Rush and Gateway use.

Drain your UAs better. You do not want to be refreshing DoTs here. The LOSS page linked explains a drain cycle.

If you want the best damage output you need to be changing talents for every boss (at least if you do it in the order my guild clears).

Use http://lockonestopshop.com/#!/Affliction/Raid Guide/Goroth and https://www.warcraftlogs.com/statistics/13#boss=2032&difficulty=4&class=Warlock&spec=Affliction&combatantinfo=Talents to get a better idea.

Watch DoT uptimes on all targets better.

Your opener. 

Drain snipe adds on death/UA them more.

Don't pot too late. It's good you try to sync it with SH/Owl though.

If you work on this stuff you should see an significant increase. 

What leggos do you have? Your stats are good overall though as you have 2 crit relic traits you may want a little more. You'll have to sim to see.

Good luck

You're welcome.

It depends on your replacements (which again you'll have to sim to find the best combination) but the Hood is a really good leggo and Prydaz is decent.

      We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out. 
      Fun guild events are scheduled often!
      Overall, we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
      GOALS FOR BfA
      In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic. 
      This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.) 
      SCHEDULE UNTIL FIRST TIER*
      Below are our events the beginning weeks of BfA! All events start at 10pm CT.
      Week 1
      August 13th (Mon) - BfA Weekday Leveling Party! August 17th (Fri) - Leveling up in BfA Drinking Party August 19th (Sun) - Leveling up in BfA Non-Drinking Party Week 2

      So I've got these two specific items. The ACI is one of the most used trinkets on shadow priest, but compared to the Infernal, it has a low ilvl. The effect of Infernal stacks every second, and since critical strike is now the bis stat for shadow priest,  which one of the trinkets would you pick? 🙂
       
      Thanks in advance! 🙂

      <Abyss> is a Mythic raiding guild recruiting to bolster our Mythic raid team for BfA. We are a zero drama guild of adults who enjoy raiding progression content. 
      The guild has been around since day one of classic. We have a relatively relaxed raid environment and solid leadership that encourages players to excel while still enjoying the game.
      Raiders must come prepared, on time, with flasks, pots, food, and runes. 
      Raiders must know their class and role. 
      Potential raiders must have been gearing for the content.
      Drama Queens and Trolls need not apply. 
      Our raid schedule is:
      Tuesday - Thursday
      8PM - 11PM CST
      We are looking for the following classes/specs, but will consider any good and dedicated players.
      Healers - Any Class
      DPS - Especially Mage, Monk, Rogue
      Tank - CLOSED
