[Frost] Low DPS - What am I missing?

5 posts in this topic

Evening fellow spell chuckers!

Logs (Entire HC Farm Raid)

https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/RPZK8MngjtWTAzry#boss=-2&difficulty=0&type=damage-done&source=2

- Armoury Link

https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/argent-dawn/arcere

- Rotation

Icy Veins recommended (Glacial Spike). Talents as seen in Armoury.

- Issue

Disparity between fights, parsing blue on some and green on others and general underperformance DPS-wise.

Not very talented with Logs Analysis I will be honest, but I have oftentimes fewer casts which could be attributed to moving too much/panicking during mechanics and sometimes the spells appear to not hit as hard by average.

Some suspect some fights hold my lower than normal FPS as a partial contributor to my low DPS, but I am certain it's purely a rotational/skill combination error on my part, or not utilizing my tools as I should.

I run Shard of Exodar and Sephuz as it is the best combination according to SimCraft and I have optimized the gear with what I have using the same tool.

Shattercapped (by far, a little too far) and Haste approx 35%.

 

Please send help, as I am breaking my brain with what I am doing wrong! 

 

Thank you in advance!

Ran your Goroth log through WoWAnalyzer. It's not a perfect tool, but please check out the recommendations. They give you a few areas to work on:

  • You cast Ice Lance 6 times (17.14%) without Shatter. Make sure that you are only casting Ice Lance when the target has Winter's Chill (or other Shatter effects), if you have a Fingers of Frost proc, or if you are moving and you cant cast anything else.

    17.14% missed (<10.00% is recommended)

  • You cast Flurry without Brain Freeze 1 times. You should never hard cast Flurry.

    1 casts (Casting none is recommended)

  • You failed to Ice Lance into 4 Winter's Chill (1.5 missed per minute). Make sure you cast Ice Lance after each Flurry to benefit from Shatter.

    4 Winter's Chill not shattered with Ice Lance (0 is recommended)

  • You failed to Frostbolt, Glacial Spike, or Ebonbolt into 3 Winter's Chill (1.1 missed per minute). Make sure you hard cast just before each instant Flurry to benefit from Shatter.

    3 Winter's Chill not shattered with Frostbolt, Glacial Spike, or Ebonbolt (0 is recommended)

  • Try to cast Ebonbolt more often.

    3 out of 4 possible casts; 83.46% cast efficiency (>90.00% is recommended)

Just a couple of things: Gear overall seems fine. Stats look good. However, any reason why you chose those two legos? Shard is perfect, but I would highly recommend Mag's bracers. It's a huge dps increase over your other ring. Only other issue I see is are trinkets. Bonus roll on Mistress / Sisters as often as possible. They drop your 2 bis trinkets. You should at least have had one drop by now.

Have you considered TV instead of glacial spike? I've ran GS several times and TV just feels better for me. You might enjoy it more and notice a pretty big dps increase. That said, legos and trinkets are your only issues from gear.

Edit: No idea why simcraft is telling you to run the two rings. They are definitely not BIS option together. Shard is, and your other should either be the bracers or helm. Just ran you through AMR and its showing just about any other lego is siming better than sephuz for you.

Could be that he has miscalculated - Sephuz is incredibly powerful, even BiS, if you can proc it (Host, Sassz'ine).

      Hello. I'm from Russia, so my English isn't very good, but I need help.
      My Armory: link
      My Warcraftlog armory: link

      My priority skills: rampage > BT > RB > FS
      So rotation like this: BC - BloodBath - ramp - odyn's fury - BT - RB - ramp - BT - RB - RB - fs .... BC - ramp - etc
      also I user free excute procs ofcourse.
       
      Simcraft show me that my best DPS must be near 1 860 000. But in fact my dps near 1.4M (maximum). 
      As you can see "good player" do much better dps then I with same iLvL.
       
      What I doning wrong?

      I heard that with the new 4 set Shattering Strikes would be better than Runic Attunement but after simming my self its around 15-20K lower. I was wondering does simming take into account that the 4 set applies Razorice? If not then that'll make sense as to why SS is doing worse than RA. I dont have the 4 set yet I was just simming myself with it to see if SS was actually better with the 4 set.

      Hi everyone,
      I, like many others, are trying to maximize DPS for their respective classes, mine in particular being ret paladin.
      In general, it seems like there are several sources of information for dps for each class.
      Icy Veins Mr Robot Raidbots (Simulation Craft) Warcraft Logs Each with its own set of criteria as to what determines high dps. And I find inconsistency when bouncing between the different sources. I want to understand what am I missing when it comes to each. I will lay out what I currently understand, and would like some feedback as to what I may not be considering in each as well as some advice as to what other options I could be exploring (resources) to further the insight into whats applicable for my current state.
      Icy Veins
      For Icy Veins, in particular, the stat weights, are mostly vaguely determined. From the ret guide:
       
      If I am reading this right, its Mastery >= Haste > Ver >= Crit = Str
      Mr Robot
      I use the addOn and I subscribe for the Best In Bags function. When I plug in my information in, the site recommends that I go with my 2pce t20 and balance around my legendaries with a focus on haste pieces (haste gems are emphasized).
      https://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/simulator/report/a42136294c7f40b2b7ee78023306d786
      Stat weights as listed in MrRobot:
      MrRobot Stat Weights
      From what I am seeing, Crit is most emphasized, and the one crit gem + ring crit enchants were originally recommended by MrRobot here. Also another notable thing here is haste being way behind crit's potential.
      RaidBots (Simc)
      For RaidBots, I use the addOn, and play around with various items I hoard, and use the stat weights functions. Generally the feedback I get here are to stick with the current gem setup and with regards to stat weights, emphasize at my current setup with crit. It also says I should drop some of my high ilvl pieces (935 head, and 960 chest) for 4pce (915 head, lfr 890 chest)
      Gear simc:
      https://www.raidbots.com/simbot/report/d3Qbkf6nqpoP4bxQ9YB2m
      Stat Weights:
      https://www.raidbots.com/simbot/report/6NkVYwEaTW26FxD4wBwey4
      Vers -> crit -> mastery -> haste -> str
      (versitality first?)
      Warcraft Logs
      I mostly use Warcraft Logs to check what the top dps players (ret pallys) are hitting and what setups are they running. I don't want to specifically link player armories in here, but upon some investigation, you'll find most are just stacking haste
      ---
      I understand stat weights are relative, however it seems like everyone has different priorities, one says mastery, another vers, another crit, another haste?
      Help me understand.
      Thanks,
      Exploit
