I need some help. I currently raid with my guild and my gear has improved and my Dps has been steadily increasing and I was happy with the amount of damage I was doing. I gave my mage a little break to focus a little bit more on my priest and when I came back I noticed the amount of damage i was doing was significantly less that what I usually do. My question has far as stats is "Am i gemming correctly? And if not what can i do? I currently run 51.26% haste and 67.75% mastery. Also with my gear how much damage should i be doing? This is my askmrrobot profile

and my armory

As your armory looks fine, I would appreciate if you could post a combatlog from WoL about you to define the problem. smile.png Preferably Malkorok/Sha of Pride.

 

Regarding to how much dps you should be doing:

 

Here are my logs, our gear level is almost the same, so around these DPS/fight you should be fine

I've never read or done logs before so excuse me i read them wrong. But according to the logs on the Sha fight your DPS  286,786. Correct? I'll try and get some logs up so I can compare myself better. I think the reason why my damage seemed low to me was because I was being lazy and not managing Invocation properly.

While you reacclimate and attempt to increase your DPS I recommend going down to 13053 haste and dumping the rest into mastery. Just plug 13053 into AMR as a soft cap under "edit weights" and do what it says to do.

 

Don't dismiss using Glyph of Cone of Cold on many of these fights. It can do some crazy things.

 

Without logs I can't tell you much else. Just focus on your uptimes, when things proc or are about to end, refresh bomb (snapshot). And just play well :)

Get some logs, post it hee and I'll help you deciding that. smile.png

 

But most of the times, yes it's due to invocation why DPS is low. Or movement issues... Or improper usage of CDs etc etc. smile.png

Thanks!! Guys for the input. As for the glyph on cone of cold i only use it on Dark Shamans and Spoils but I should prolly use it more often like on Sha, Galakras and maybe Protectors?? But i'll definitly try everything u guys told me.

Sorry for the double post but I have to ask why 13053. I understand that after 46% haste starts to lose to mastery but isnt there 3 different playstyles; haste build, mastery build, and mixed each with their own strengths and weakness but im curious why are you advising the mastery build? Any specfic reasons? Im only asking since i heard you were running a haste built and getting good results and i like running a lot of haste as well. And again sorry for all the questions. I know that u guys r both awesome frost mages and i just want to take advantage of that since i have ur attention :)

Loot will be distributed via RcLootcouncil as evenly as possible focusing on gearing the raid as a whole. We will respect you at all times. Progress is important to us but the atmosphere of the raids must be maintained a good personality and a sense of humor is a must.

      Guild: Dawn of the Dead | http://www.dotd.org   Faction: Horde | Server: Zul'jin (PvE) | Timezone: EST   Current Progression: 7/9M Tomb of Sargeras | 10/10M Nighthold | 3/3M Trial of Valor | 7/7M Emerald Nightmare   We've been raiding max size raids continuously since WoW has been released and are the only guild to have done so here on Zul'jin. We have strong leadership, no drama, and plans to keep raiding for years to come. Unlike many guilds, we're not recruiting for the short term, and we don't over-recruit.   Website: www.dotd.org
        Raid Times: Our schedule is 8-11 EST Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.   Needs: We are a small guild, and we expect high attendance. As such, we recruit people to raid, and desire people who can step in and contribute immediately. We don’t recruit people to sit around, so all spots are for raiders who can expect to be in most every raid.   We are currently looking to add skilled and reliable:   1 Healer
      High: Shadow Priest, Mage
       
      *ALL exceptional applicants will be considered regardless of the class.   What we ask of you:   Effort: Not all applicants come from highly progressed guilds, and that’s okay, but it does mean that you need to be prepared. We recruit the player, not the gear, but we do ask that you have some current experience and be a minimum iLvl of 920. You need to have the best gear available to you, (BoE, Crafted) with gems and top end enchants. You also need to be able to display an understanding of your class mechanics, role in a raid, and ability to learn new fights.   Attitude: It’s a game. We play for fun. How you fit in with the guild is taken very seriously. We’re a bunch of mostly 18-30 guys and girls who have fun playing together. While we have a good time, we also know when it’s time to buckle down and work hard.   Skill: The best way to determine skill is to see you in a raid. Because we don’t wish to have anyone transfer that we’re not serious about, be able to express your knowledge of your class and why you’re an exceptional player who would be an asset and is worth a shot. Gear will come with time. Skill will not. Impress us with your knowledge of your class and gameplay mechanics. Feel free to share any logs, theorycrafting, or other work you've done.   Commitment: We make a commitment to you, and ask you to do the same to us. A raid takes a team of more than 20 individuals working together. We rely on you to show up to raids, research your class and new fights, respect your fellow players, and notify us when you are unavailable. You rely on us for gear, experience, and coordination. It's a large investment of our time to train and gear new players, and we ask the same investment on your part so that we can each benefit.   We have a variety of informational resources available to prospective applicants on our web site: http://www.dotd.org-- please refer to our "Applications" forum for detailed information. Also feel free to visit us on WoWProgresss for more information and kill videos! http://www.wowprogress.com/guild/us/...wn+of+the+Dead   Should you wish to speak to someone in-game, please don't hesitate to reach out to an officer directly, whisper Xanah (Xana#1662) or Jeare (Jeare#1759).   We look forward to hearing from you soon!

      Hi!
      I would like to ask somethng about ice lance and other procs aswell.
      To maximize dps, should you always try to get rid of Fingers of Frost procs with ice lances? And if you get flurry proc, do you want to get rid of ice lance procs before casting flurry + lance combo?
      I am not sure how much icicles and maximizing their damage output before dumping them affects your damage.
      Thank you

      Hello everyone.
       
      I've been playing hunter MM as my main for a while, but lately i've noticed that my DPS output might not be as high as it should. A couple of months ago, I tought it might be my ilvl or my mastery that was too low, but i've tried different builds and i still can't get closer to some other hunters I run into some ToS H pugs.
       
      I'm actually sitting at 938 iLvl. Don't have many BiS, but my stats are kinda high. My weapon relics are bad(low ilvl, i'm still stuck with 915 relics), and I still didn't get any other good legendary besides the Soul of the Huntmaster.
       
      So my question is: Am I doing something wrong or it's just my relics/trinkets that aren't very decent? I was happy when i get past the 1M dps mark, but now i'm stuck at that point, and I can't see to get past that.
       
      Here's my armory link: https://worldofwarcraft.com/pt-br/character/azralon/piccola
       
      Hopefully you guys can help me out on this. Thanks!
