Help with Fire Mage low DPS performances

2 posts in this topic

Hello everyone,

 

i changed class from Priest a few weeks ago, and i really like the Fire playstyle overall, even if i know that frost is performing better ATM.

However, everytime i see the logs of my Raid Leader at the end of the raid, i see that i'm in the lowest percentile for Fire Mages equipped as me in ILVL values. For that reason, i decided to start a post in the Forum: this situation is stressing me out during raid, and i don't know how to solve it.

Here is the link to my armory, as well as to the last week fight (as well as an older one)

The problems i know i currently have are;

  • Not using Firestarter: i'll start using it in the next raid. From what i understood, i simply  play in the first 10% life of the boss as if i have Combustion on, and activate it at the end;
  • Having a crappy combination of Legendaries (Kil'Jaeden and Pyrotext). My other alternatives ATM are Prydaz, Insigna and Soul. It is possible that just from the crappy Legendaries i result in a crappy DPS?

Overall, comparing to my guildmates, i have a decent DPS, but i think that with my gear i should perform better, isn't it?

 

Please let me know if you need anything else in order to give me advices

 

Thanks in advance, see you around

Since this post is a bit older, I took your most recent Garothi Heroic kill to take a look at (24th Jan):

  • You need to Fire Blast more. You missed around 5-7 possible casts, meaning a potential 5-7 conversions of Heating Up! - make sure you're using them as often as possible, always keeping one rolling on cooldown at least.
  • This is most notably happening in your Combustion phase. You need to check your priorities during Combustion. You are casting spells rather than using Fire Blast/Phoenix for an instant proc into a Pyro crit. It's wasting Combustion time to cast rather than use an instant for another pyro. 
  • You've got no potion on this pull, so that would have impacted DPS. Might be a gold issue, not sure, but look into using 2 potions every fight for maximum DPS.
  • You need to pre-cast before sending your instant Pyros. Send a Fireball with the Pyro to ensure the highest possible chance of a proc returning to you, with 2 spells hitting at once rather than 1.

For Kin'garoth, you've got a few more issues, possibly due to not knowing the fight well. It's from the same clear:

  • You're not using your cooldowns enough. You missed multiple casts of Combustion and your trinket.
  • You're not utilising your Combustion well enough. You're entering the phase with low numbers of Phoenix and Fire Blast, meaning you are sending barely any Pyros due to having to spend time casting rather than getting instant procs.
  • You are casting Fire Blast while you already have an instant pyro proc, thereby wasting Fire Blast.
  • You are also using Fire Blast when you have no Heating Up! proc, meaning your next spell (each time not being a crit) wasted the guaranteed crit of FB.

This should help if you work on these errors.

      Hey everyone,
      So, I think my problem is my gear as I have been trying to rack my brain on why my dps is not that great in raids. Some of it I admit is probably not sticking 100% to my rotation, but any help/suggestions would definitely be appreciated.
      You can find the analyzer for the most recent log here: https://wowanalyzer.com/report/4K3dCR86gfMv2Njt/2-LFR+Antoran+High+Command/Darkbriar
       
      Thanks in advance! 😎

      SERVER: Illidan
      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time.
      PROGRESSION: 2/11M
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING*
      Tank All DPS (Healer offspec preferred but not required) Possibly accepting other roles! ABOUT US
      Now recruiting for BFA!
      Currently looking for skilled and laid back Tank & DPS for the upcoming expansion.
      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 BFA**
      Fridays currently mandatory for core raiders for a partial Heroic clear.
      Sundays reserved for non-mandatory misc WoW activities (M+, leveling alts for BFA etc.) or other non-WoW related events.
      If ilvl is high enough, you can join for Friday (950+) and Sunday on any character, not just the one you want to play in BFA.
                *The class you play in BFA can be different from what you play now; we will be flexible until the expansion hits.
                **Schedule subject to changes.
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW
      Make sure to add me on Battle.net and/or fill out our short 6 question app to join us. We look forward to speaking with you!
      Start the app here!
