Another DPS help post.

4 posts in this topic

Hey, so I could really use some help with this, I'm lost trying to understand the logs and I feel like there's a lot of stuff I could improve on. Any tips or pointers at all would be really appreciated. I hope this log is of a usable kind: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/kLr8fqPD9HcyTxJF

(Mine is Qraul, the only DH in the group.)

And really, if anyone would be kind enough to bother, I could really use a "teach a man to fish" scenario here, if you'll pardon the analogy. I've been meaning to learn to interpret and improve from logs but it has seemed like a kind of daunting thing to deal with.

Few notes, Garothi first:

  • Why is your activity so low? There's no reason to be under 90% here.
  • Answering my own question - you could really learn from your Rogue/Warrior here. Just watching the replay, you move for tactics way too early. You have the highest mobility in the game, use it to your advantage. Stay on the boss for as long as possible before moving back to stack. Also ensure that you are as close to the boss as possible when soaking.

For Eonar:

  • You have almost 0 ramp up time to your AoE, yet you never seem to be in a position of using your AoE effectively. You should be unloading your spells before your casters can finish their casts. Your Monk did exactly that, hence why he parsed so well.

General notes:

  • Make sure you are casting Fury of the Illidari and Nemesis whenever possible. There are multiple fights where you miss casts of them both. Same goes for Chaos Blades.
  • What legendaries do you have available? Lacking shoulders and ring is an issue.
  • Dump fury more often. You cap out too much during fights, wasting resources.

I do lack Shoulders and Ring and I'm constantly farming Invasions, Mythic+ and buying Relinquished rings, so not sure what else to do about that.

I got my activity up on Garothi https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/2QgNT8yCqAYhKPMG#fight=5 but I managed to do less DPS, I'm guessing this is due to prematurely switching out my T20 set. Should I be transitioning to a Demonic build yet or should I wait until 4 set of T21? Also, should I be using Fel Rush for DPS? The logs I've compared myself to who do better DPS than me rarely use Fel Rush so my intuition tells me not to, but all the guides recommend keeping Fel Rush from capping at 2 charges.

Just keep doing what you're doing and praying for it.

Demonic setup only works/outperforms T20 with 4-set.

This is kind of a tough one - technically, yes, you should. Realistically, most of the time, no, you shouldn't. Fel Rush triggers an extremely small GCD, one that makes your damage per GCD second fairly high when using it, but you have to reposition yourself well otherwise it ends up being a DPS loss. If you can't reposition yourself properly, or can't rely on where you will end up being close enough to not interrupt your swing timer, then don't do it.

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting range DPS & Tank. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 7/11 Mythic Antorus. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:15 PM until 12:15 AM Eastern. Currently, our main goal is to push Mythic progression & finish out the raid before next patch, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us, because we will not be doing Heroic or anything like that.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated. In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      As far as classes are concerned, at this time, we do not have ANY rogues, DPS warriors, havoc DH, or wind walkers.
      If you are interested, add me to battle tag and we will talk (violentravi#1826), I will accept mostly anyone who wants to be a bench or casual, but for raiding purposes, you must be able to provide logs.  If you cannot get ahold of me in game, I work nights, please shoot me an email, I check it at work often and I can get ahold of other officers via text/discord if it's urgent! violentnacho@gmail.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.
