Demonic Build DPS

Recommended Posts

So, i've been struggling with the new Demonic T21 build. I engage with Fel Rush, then Nemesis + Fury of the Illidari, then Demon Bite until i can Eye Beam, then i Meta and spam Chaos Strike until i run out of fury, Eye Beam again and keep spamming Chaos Strike. Problem is, doesn't seem to be working, my dps was about 1,6M on vari, but my SimDPS for this build is over 1,9M.

Here's a link to my sim: https://www.raidbots.com/simbot/report/rdFZs5SrR7yabbQ4mAMRBf

When i use T20 build, i hit about 1,8M, close to my SimDPS for that build, without any problems at all. So, i need someone to shed me some light on this matter xP

No one posts here anymore, apparently. I just recently came back to the game and posted a while back, over 500 views with zero replies. 


I wish I could help but being new back all of this is new to me and no one has bothered to respond to either of us. I think at this point posting on the dreaded WoW forums and hoping you get someone who actually knows something there. I feel like we come here to avoid that lol but so far no responses. 


Anyhow, GL to you, hope it works out and you can find a solution. If so, please share it here....just got my first T21 piece last night so hopefully I will be going to this build soonish!

Sup buddies, sry If you guys ain't getting as much answers as desired. People are probably busy, idk. 

I'm not an authority on DH matters too, but I can appoint two things on your case, Leyllara. First one is: Your simulation on Raidbots is considering a parse of 300s fight lenght. That's kinda unrealistic. For example, look at your Wowprogress simulation (that uses the most updated SimulationCraft build, but with a 450sec lenght https://www.wowprogress.com/character/us/azralon/Leyllara). You're simming 1.57kk; pretty close of what you're achieving right now.

Other than that, your opener is correct, and probably your rotation as well; the only thing that can (or cannot) be happening here and there is wasting some soul fragments, therefore losing the CDR on EB it provides (I personally still forget to strafe my character constantly to catch'em, sometimes).

Well, that being said, I only can explain your bigger parses using the traditional Build with it being really more bursty and familiar to you. T21 has a better sustained DPS. Still doesn't compares with the Chaos Blades burst at all.

Sorry for the delay - just picking up posts after the holiday season.


I could only find one log of you using Demonic on Garothi, so I'm going to have to use that one for now. On that log, you parsed at 76%, with 25% in your item level bracket.

  • Your opener is wrong. You are waiting far too long to trigger Meta after using Eye Beam. As soon as Eye Beam finishes, you should be popping Meta.
  • With a 10-second recharge, a tiny GCD and no need to reposition, why are you barely using Fel Rush? You can save it for the slam, but there are 1 minute windows where you don't touch it.
  • You use your potion at a completely useless time. Why not save it for execute phase where your group pops Bloodlust and you have Meta up for the duration of the buff?

With better luck on crits (+5-6% more all round) and fixing these things, you'd have had a 80-85% parse. Your lack of Mastery for Demonic is also an issue.

as for the moment with demonic build, i see no reason at all to use fel rush, since that gcd would be better used on a Demon's Bite (it's hard to fill GCDs with 160+ ping, thanks blizz for BR servers not being on brazil) to actually generate some fury. as for the potion, i'm not really sure when to use a second prolonged, since i've been using old war with bursts forever. the meta issue, well, since demonic talent only stacks once with meta, i was thinking of having more meta uptime by letting first demonic fade, then meta and eye beam again, going to 8 + 38 meta seconds. i'll go with these tips and see what i get, but for now i'm going mythic with my t20

Also, if you are aware of some way to track soul fragments besides looking for them in the middle of the fights, i'd be grateful.

My personal way of opening is to Fel Rush in, Bite for Fury, Eyebeam, pop Nemesis and then go to town. When the Demonic Meta ends use my cast Meta and use Eyebeam to get the extended duration and go back to wrecking the boss.

Why do you Nemesis so late? There's no reason not to use it as early as possible, since you could be losing more uses of it depending on fight length. Delaying it doesn't really do anything.

I agree with blainie, I usually use Nemesis pretty early, and theres no reason to wait to use Meta after opening eye beam, also care to not overlap the 25% haste buffs from the 4Pc tier as they don't stack. I open with a prolongue power(use right before pull so I can use a 2nd one), I then use the 2nd one with my 2nd Nemesis+metamorph to maximize effectiveness.

Your mastery is REALLY low. In game unbuffed I am 55%Cr/23H/38M/12V. Single target w/ eye beam build I sim just below 2.1M, and have no problem on Garothi hitting around 2M. 

The only thing you should be wasting a GCD on Fel Rush for garothi is to avoid damage, and to stack the green damage circles to the right of the raid, then get back in.

I would open like so: Nemesis, Fel Rush in, fury of the illidari, demons bite until eye beam, metamorph, dump fury on chaos strike, when 25% haste buff is close to ending(dont have to wait til it ends because you still have to channel the next eye beam before the buff renews), eye beam. Eye Beam does a TON of damage(one eye beam from me is around 3M dmg), you need to be using nemesis before Eye Beam.

On Garothi it's also important to have Eye Beam and Fury of the Illidari back up when the 2 adds pop out. Also, this is where chaos cleave shines on this fight.

My honest opinion is that you're too comfortable in the old set, and unhappy that your not proficient with the new so you're clinging to the old. Get out of your comfort zone, commit to the new build and just practice.


This is me for every fight in Antorus.

You need to lose some haste for Mastery

      Hi all , i am concerned with me doing very low dps comparing with the simmulations i should be doing atm.
      The thing is that i have very variancy in my dps depending in boss, even in the same boss i can be pulling like 300k dps up or below.
      Here is my warcraflogs page ( i have been only uploading last encounters since i was not secure about doing this). I accept any kind of critics and tips ( i know i must upgrade my enchants too and i have raddons and pretty near all havoc legendaries and Trinkets from Varimathras and Aggramar )
      And here my armory 
      Thanks for replying.

      Hi all, new here and just returning to WoW. I haven't played hardcore since vanilla so a lot of this info is new to me and some I don't fully understand. 
      I've been back for about 3 weeks. My iLvl is around 930 (the items listed may not be 100% updated as I am working on enchants and such as we speak but this gets you pretty close to where I'm at!), but I am continually Fury starved. I JUST ran my first clear of Antorus tonight, got zero set pieces and have ran LFR twice and also received zero set pieces. 
      I am sure my logs are trash (don't even know how to get them and actually apply the knowledge though). So is my DPS (imo anyhow). But not much I can do when I have such a hard time with Fury. I posted on the Blizz forums and got some responses telling me to get set pieces and such but short of that I think my haste is a horrible issue (11.5%). I just got the leggie ring for completing Antorus and it's a significant upgrade to one of my current rings. But since I am at 40% crit, 11.5% Haste and 38% mastery, should I socket that ring with Haste and maybe even enchant it with haste rather than crit? I know crit is the heaviest weighted stat for us (I also have a 200 agi gem in my chest which I didn't know what to get at the time so I could also switch that agi out to a 200 haste gem, so I would end up with 200 haste from chest, 400 haste from ring) but I am trying to find a happy medium to generate Fury more consistently and still crit for my Chaos Strike.
      At this point, I really don't know what to do to improve it, other than get more/better gear. Another issue with that is, just coming back I am rusty and without good gear I'm not gonna be able to get a regular guild that can run this stuff. So, it's kind of a chicken vs the egg issue. Are there any ideas/suggestions you guys can share with me?
      Any info is much appreciated. Thanks and take care all!

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

      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.
