Rotation Help

10 posts in this topic

I'm not entirely sure what I am doing wrong that is getting me this result, but I am getting about a 30k dps difference on training dummy when I use a defile, clawing shadows, shadow infusion build than when I use the recommended talents. I left the rest of my talents unchanged and I have yet to see where the dps difference is coming from (arbiter or clawing shadows), but I'm very confused as to how this could happen. Links to armory and mrrobot below.

Defile damage breakdownArbiter damage breakdown

I felt like I had a harder time keeping my disease up and using coldheart on cooldown (or rather whenever at max stacks) with the arbiter build. Am I missing some key thing or do I just need to git gud? Thanks in advance for any help.

This is what your talent sims look like when compared:

You sim 10%-11% lower when using Defile, so you should 100% be doing more damage with the standard DA build.

Get a log of yourself on Vari normal/LFR and we can see what is going wrong.

It could be a stupid question (I know it is, but to be sure): Are you hitting multiple dummys with your defile?

It happened to me, when i was testing talents....

I was not surprisingly (barring 1 or 2 ticks when it hit max size) so not sure there.

Low mastery doesn't help with DA build too.  I'd try and drop some of your Versa for Mastery if possible.  In regards to Cold heart, I use a Weak Aura to Track the Stack next to my character, It makes a noise at max stacks so i don't really have to watch it much.  As far as Disease management if you use a custom UI, try to get a good Debuff tracker on the target healthbar (just some sort of timer) just try to always refresh at 1-2 sec.  Otherwise Make sure to pool your resources and refresh your Virulent Plague before starting a DA Burst window.  Other than that Pray for the RNG gods to give you Leggo Shoulders to really up DA damage.

Ok so I'm a dumbass and forgot to actually log the varmiathras fight. I do however have logs for aggramar and argus. If needed I can try to rerun varimathras.

 Personally, I always preferred Mastery over other stats on UH although admittedly I haven't paid too much attention to off-stats this xpac I'll definitely make mastery a priority when considering side grades.

On your Aggramar kill, your setup was a bit off.  if there is a timer at about 6-7s before pull pop army.  Then Virulent plague as you run in, 2 festering Strikes to get +6 stacks of wounds, then refresh plague -> Apocalypse -> DA (pop any on demand CD's)-> Deathcoil spam.  I would spec into unholy Frenzy, clawing shadows is better for high movement fights, but frenzy has better synergy with DA.  If you can still get your hands on one, COF from nighthold will help sync up cd's also.

Just returning to this - you have no ACL enabled, so running you through WoWAnalyzer, for example, is impossible.

Looking at the log manually, I can't see certain things like your positioning (no replay available) or your resource usage. I also can't check your gear, legendaries used, talents used.

Even without this stuff, I can already see your opener is wrong. Your usage of spells is kind of all over the place, but I can't tell if that's due to a problem on Aggramar or not. Retake a log on Vari, enabled Advanced Combat Logging and I'll take a look (this time I'll do it a bit faster!)

      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.

I know this sounds bad but can anyone like dumb it down or like comment simpler instructions right now i am going off this attachment i made based of some advice and off of icy viens and i am only doing 4152 dps total so I am not sure if this is low or not but I am already level 120 right now

      <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.
