DPS Trouble

Hay,

 

I seem to struggle to get better DPS. I figured out that i used chaos strike and blade dance to less. and i should use less Throw glaive and fellrush. 
But i stil seem to have trouble getting my dps on.  Please take a look on the logs at the 14th. 
I really dislike using the "eye beam build" (it feel slow to me) so i still use the 2221311 build.

 Raddons Cascading eyes should replace Delusions of Grandeur. You should not be using blade dance at all with the current Felreaper tier. Eye Beam build is far superior when used properly( I can pull 2M+ with my current build/gear on single target).

I think that's your problem. I think you know it too, just practice the build/rotation.

You should open with: Nemesis, 1-2 Demons Bite to activate eye beam, fury of the illidari, chaos strike until depleted fury, metamorphosis, eye beam(our talents reset eye beam CD on metamorph active).

Thats your opening rotation, the extension to metamorphosis from the "Demonic" talent stacks, there for metamorphosis is 30S, +8 from each use of Eye Beam(procing Demonic talent). You should be able to get 3 eye beams off before losing your demonic form, giving you 54 seconds in Demon form. You need to be picking up the purple gloves dropping from Demonic Appetite, As each globe reduces the cooldown on Eye Beam and gives you fury.

After the initial rotation it's pretty much just using demons bite when fury is low, and chaos striking, and eye beam on cooldown, when nemesis comes back up try to time an Eye Beam with it, fury of illidari of cooldown, and when Metamorphosis is back up, try to time it w/ Nemesis.

Also, I cannot see your crucible talents/relics, but getting Critical Chaos on either is HUGE. The Shocklight trait is also hands down your best tier 2.

Just a few things on your actual logs:

  • You played with 4-piece, yet you interrupted your channel of Eye Beam early and ended up missing out on the Haste buff. Make sure you finish that channel or you're completely devaluing the 4-piece bonus.
  • You delayed your Chaos Blades too long, meaning you missed a use of it. Even if you only missed about 15% of the potential last buff's duration, it's definitely a DPS loss.
  • You technically miss a Nemesis cast, but it's no big deal. If the fight had gone on longer, it would have been a big loss. Not sure if you delaying it was intentional, but judging by the delay on the CB also, I'm assuming not.
  • You could have got in another Fury of the Illidari cast.
  • As you said already, weave in Throw Glaive + Fel Rush to keep things rolling during downtime.

That's pretty much it.

Am i the only person that has an issue with 37% crit? I run t-21 and i have about 49% before buffs... i know it might be different for a chaos blades type build. 

Also im not sure if ur t21 is great to do with the chaos blades build, due to the 2 set being useless..... I know u might not be in the position to, but t20 would help alot/ Also if u r using the chaos blades build running with eye beam is also losing alot of dps especially with your lower mastery it really isnt providing alot of dmg!!! 

However im not an expert by the least just my first thoughts!

Their gear isn't ideal, but gear is always RNG-dependent, so I always find it kind of pointless to give the advice of getting a certain type of gear. It's likely that they're already trying to :p

Just wanted to add, the Eye Beam build might feel slow because you don't have the right build/gear for it. Low crit or just plain bad luck can force you to use Demon's Bite a lot so that might be why, but definitely try it :p I also felt hesitant at first, but it actually feels pretty good when you get rolling. The playstyle is dynamic since you're actively reducing your Eye Beam cd to get your next burst and unlike demon blades version, you never actually stop attacking, or even moving because there are souls to pick up.

      I came to Icy Veins to setup my Elemental Shaman only to find your Talent setup does not match what is offered in the game presently.  Below I have listed what I see in my current in-game talent setup and bolded those items that do not match your setup at all.
      Current in-game Talents listed:                                                   Your Listing:                      
      15 Exposed Elements Echo of the Elements Elemental Blast               Earthen Rage 30 Aftershock Master of Elements Totem Mastery       Call the Thunder 45 Spirit Wolf Earth Shield Static Charge         60 High Voltage Storm Elemental Liquid Magma Totem       Master of the Elements 75 Nature's Guardian Ancestral Guidance Wind Rush Totem         90 Earthen Rage Primal Elementalist Icefury       Surge of Power 100 Unlimited Power Stormkeeper Ascendance         I thought someone here should know about these differences because it appears there has been no update recently to your setup.   I know that I personally would appreciate an update so that I can adjust my in-game setup to work better.

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which semi-recently transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some shit.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are in need of any competent DPS, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.
