[Elemental] DPS problems

Good day I'm having some problems fine tuning my toon, first ranged DPS so I'm quite unsure if I'm doing things correctly

 

http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/draenor/Axarox/simple

 

Here's my toon, just tried moving some mastery to haste, see if it does something. On a test on a dummy I do around 121k with full mastery and 131k with a bit more in haste

 

I feel like I'm missing out , I didn't use BL or stormlash for the testing.

 

When comparing results to f.x. sim craft I get the result of 169k so I feel like I'm missing out on something

 

I only have a combatlog of a fight on horridon, so I'm not sure to what that's comparable

all help on this topic would be much appreciated 

 

regards

I'm not sure if it's just me, but I was denied access to that log. Double check to see if it's a private log, and try again.

It might help people if you try to describe the order in which you cast spells, in general.

 

As well as that, can you tell us what your opening cast sequence usually is?

 

That might help get you some constructive answers! :)

ofc well here's how I start,

fire elemental totem 

flame shock

lava burst

elemental blast

blood fury

ascendance 

go nuts on lava burst

 

 

overall I try to keep the uptime of flameshock as high as I can

then lava burst and elemental blast on CD 

filler is lighthing bolts and earthshock on 7 (I tend to forget to use that so I dont miss the flameshock reably time)

on filler periods I throw down a searing totem

 

thanks for the help guys :)

From what I know about Elemental, your rotation seems to at least be in the right area. I would suggest that perhaps spending some time recording your rotation and watching it (to pick up your mistakes) and then re-playing the same thing would help. Looking out for those mistakes would probably help you improve overall, even if nobody can give you any other ways to improve!

horridon dps has a lot to do with tank skill in grouping adds and pacing of the fight. theres some major damage buffs near the end, its just overall not a good fight to measure dps on. in tot durumu and twins are probably the most straight forward. if you can get in a flex SoO, iron juggernaut, malkorok and siegecrafter are very easy to just sit on boss and in all of them you hero on pull.

Did garrosh tonight, 3 times haha, and I could see my dps raise after every try going from 92k -> 118 k -> ending in 138k (142k according to recount) and I can sort of be happy with this, specially by the fact that chain lightning is only 15% , was more focused on single target dps

 

I logged those fights so I have them here:

Mostly the changes in gameplay was,

 

Better to do something than trying to have your priority 100%

position yourself better in fights

while casting plan your next attacks etc. 

 

All of this seems to be lack of experience of caster :)

 

thanks all for your help

yeah as a caster your position off the boss can be almost anywhere, so where you choose to be is very important. and as elemental, more than anything, Always Be Casting.

Sorry that this post is not entirely useful to your initial request, but just in case you had 3 "tries" of Garrosh in LFR difficulty, keep in mind that you likely get a determination buff after every wipe that boosts your stats. So, the increased numbers may not be accurate. Of course, if you had 3 separate attempts (or on non-LFR difficulty), you can disregard this post.

      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.

      hello, so i am following this deck - https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/elemental-mage-deck and i was wondering which card i should buy next and i dont have much dust left. I need the following cards
      Primordial Glyph x2
      Pyros x1
      Arcane Keysmith x2
      Blazecaller x2
      Frost Lich Jaina x1
       
      I have 1945 dust left with the option to disenchant "Archmage Arugal" with a total of 2345, because i dont use it, nor do i know if its any good?
       
       
      I can either go with x2 Primordial as the guide says this is needed for the deck + x2 Blazecaller for late and x1 Arcane Keysmith? but then  i wont have the pyros for early or Jaina for late.
       
      Or i can go balls out buying x1 Frost lich jaina and x1 primordial glyph ? / Or just Pyros and x1 Primordial. I dont know.
       
      My last scenario is buying Frost lich jaina and x1 primordial by selling some rare cards, then use "Archmage Arugal" instead of Pyros for the time being and combo it up with AI for 2 extra cards, and hope its something good.
       
       
       
      any help is grately appreciated.

      Hey guys, i'm coming to all my fellow shamans as a last resort, i don't seem to understand were I've gone wrong. I've been maining my Ele Shaman for several months now, and I've followed every instruction with guides. My stat priority is on point, my gear considerably good. (942) at the moment. I've tried every build with multiple bosses etc. My simulator show i should be nearing 2M dps on fights. Yet when i'm fighting i'm around 850k. I don't know if this is because of all the movements, but like i mentioned above I've tried Ice fury build for movement fights. When i'm practicing and testing rotations on dummy's my numbers seem, to be ok. Does anyone have tricks, tips, or pointers on what'll take to achieve the damage i need. I watch others with same builds, with less gear pulling great numbers. I know elemental isn't the best for Single Target, but my last fight on maiden i pulled 700k DPS :( !!!! As far as AOE, no problem there. Numbers are outstanding on trash etc. Thanks for taking the time to ready this.

      Hi,
      I have a question: For the ascendance / gambler build the haste stat is on top of the priority list. Our trinket priority list shows that a static mastery stat increase via a trinket is higher on the priority than a static haste increase.
      How come? 
      Regards, Enqua
