Hi everyone. I just killed HC Varimathras and I was surprised by my low damage. There was not second time warp because we used the first one at 20% HP but I think I should get higher numbers. Can anyone tell me what did I do wrong? Was it really only in TW? I do not think so :/.

Well, since you didn't get a second TW, your Shard legendary was completely useless. It was just a stat stick, nothing else. 

Your gear is overall not really optimal, at all. You used Shard when you had no extra TW, you have no T20 2-P, your NLC traits suck. 

Your traits are Master of Shadows, Secure in the Light and Murderous Intent - Compared to the top choice of Torment the Weak, Master + Murderous together only just beat 1 choice of TtW in terms of % DPS outut.

For your main tier traits, you are running: 2x Icy Caress, 1x Obsidian Lance, 1x The Storm Rages and 2x Clarity of Thought.

In terms of ST damage, which we're seeing on Vari, The Storm Rages is completely useless. It is a dead trait. Your 2x Clarity of Thought are worth more than the rest of your traits combined. And I don't mean a bit more, I mean, 1.5x more in terms of % DPS.

Your Vitality Resonator can be beaten by so many other trinkets that I'm not sure if it's the only one you have or if you're choosing to use it. Your guild's kill time is far too slow to be using VR. It's used on so many top parses because they have ~2 minute kills, meaning they benefit from the max-intellect buff for a much larger portion of the fight. At 4+ minutes, that's not really happening anymore.

Also make sure to roll your Veiled Argunite for a chance at an Arcanocrystal! High enough titanforge and it'll be your BiS for ages!

      <Pickle Palace> is a recently formed guild on Illidan, but is made up of veteran players who wanted to take a step back from semi-hardcore raiding. We are currently raiding Mythic Antorus (9/11), with our goal being to finish it out before the end of the expansion. Our community is actively playing outside of raid time, pushing M+ and hanging out on discord.

      We raid on a 2 day schedule. Our raid days are Tuesday and Wednesday 9-12 EST. And will be adding a 3rd raid day for BfA! (Thursday or Monday)

      We are currently recruiting,

      All Exceptional Ranged DPS
      &
      Shaman w/ offpsec heals

      Expectations
      Have a great attitude every night. Be prepared for every raid; this includes purchasing consumables and studying encounter strategies. We provide feast/codex/flasks other consumables are your responsibility Zero tolerance policy for criticizing others' performance. Officers will take care of it, worry about yourself and yourself only. Be critical of your performance and take time outside of raiding hours to analyze warcraftlogs for personal improvement. Have fun. We love playing with each other in a friendly, team-oriented, boss-crushing atmosphere -- and you should too! Must be able to tolerate adult language
      If you are interested in joining <Pickle Palace> please contact,

      Codesta#1454 (Codestâ) - GM

      Looking for a fun, casually serious progression guild? Hordeland Security could be your new home! We started at launch, and have raided on Blackhand, Baelgun, and now Turalyon. 

      We currently raid on Tuesdays and Thursdays 7:00- 9:15 Central Time. We understand that no one has an unlimited amount of time to play. We raid with a fun, casual, yet goal oriented focus; we achieve AotC in current content and then progress into Mythic. We also have a few that pvp, and we've been known to also do mog/achievement runs.
      Interested? Drop us a line!
      Raid Lead - Keelhaul (Herve#1737)

      -or-
      lil ol' me - Maplefire#1200 - (mention you're from the Icy Veins thread in the friend request so my brain won't explode)
      Thanks for your consideration - happy raiding!

      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.

      Defile damage breakdown, Arbiter 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.
