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

Thank you in advance for your help

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 :)

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which 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 *filtered*.
      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 accepting applications for any role, 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.

      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.
