New to Affliction

Recommended Posts

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

Disclamier: Always may be errors.

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.

      So i heard about primal ancients, and i m kinda desperate to get it. Why? It can make my Demon Hunter even powerful then he is now (I deal about 35m damage) So how do you get them? I know how though. Get in a GR 70 and do it Solo, but how do you do it actually? How much do you need to farm this for? A week? A month? A YEAR? The point is, i want primal ancients, and have NO IDEA how to farm them :// so... i need a bit of help for farming :))

      Hey Everyone, 
      So i play a Demon Hunter Lvl 120 with iLVL 464.
      My DPS in dungeons is just so low compared to everyone else and i dont know why. I was in a M8+ earlier and the ilvl 450 Tank was doing more DPS than I was. 
      Any tips? Check out my gear/character, i think its all setup right. I went through the Icy Veins Demon Hunter guide and stat priority etc... Got a rotation, but something isnt right. Im always last on DPS even with 440 ilvl players in the group.
       
      Thanks for reading!

      I'm new to using icy-veins, and I cannot seem to get used to navigating the WoW class guides. Why is stat info the 13th section of the guides, but max level content 6th through 12th? Where do I find comparisons between specs?
