Reasonable Arms DPS?

Hello everyone, just a little background first.

 

I joined in late Cata and throughout most of that expansion and early mop I had no idea what I was doing and pretty much sucked/never made any real progress. This patch, though (5.4) I've started raiding relatively casually for progression purposes, not really competitively. I'm 13/14 in SoO at the moment (have killed all but thok).

 

So, I'm not sure if I'm doing the DPS I should be doing at my ilvl. Here's a link to my armory (I have the 2-set and also the norushen trinket to replace the thok one on multi-target fights.)

On single target fights (like iron jug and malkorok), I manage to pull somewhere between 200k and 220k DPS on 10M normal. I've heard that arms is one of the worst dps specs right now but it still just doesn't feel right when I have a similarly geared hunter and boomkin in my raid group beating me by ~20-30k on single target fights every time. My question is, is my DPS as high as its going to get for my item level or do I have room to improve/should I respec for fury?

If you can post some logs from your raid, we can analyze your playstyle and see what could be done to improve. Without that, it's hard to say.

I wouldn't say the DPS is bad, per say. And being beaten by some classes by that small of a margin isn't somethig to be ashamed for really. I find it interesting though that you've managed to clear all but Thok. It shouldn't be too hard if you've managed the rest.

~200k seems a bit on the low side for your ilvlbut it may be because at the point you're at, fury would definitely give better results.

 

You probably have room to improve (everybody has smile.png ) but I would assume that mainly it's because Arms on single target is weaker than fury atm, especially past 530 ilvl.

      Hey all
      As the title says im having issues with low dps atm, when i sim myself on raidbots im supposed to do 1.3mil dps ish (iknow its perfect conditions) but atm im roughly doing hardly 1mil unless its execute phase. Any tips or suggestions i can do to improve my performence.
      Here's a log for examination pretty much represent my overall performence for single target bosses: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/TdhwyZKXq2rtjbxF/#fight=last&type=damage-done&source=14

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting range DPS & Tank. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 7/11 Mythic Antorus. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:15 PM until 12:15 AM Eastern. Currently, our main goal is to push Mythic progression & finish out the raid before next patch, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us, because we will not be doing Heroic or anything like that.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated. In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      As far as classes are concerned, at this time, we do not have ANY rogues, DPS warriors, havoc DH, or wind walkers.
      If you are interested, add me to battle tag and we will talk (violentravi#1826), I will accept mostly anyone who wants to be a bench or casual, but for raiding purposes, you must be able to provide logs.  If you cannot get ahold of me in game, I work nights, please shoot me an email, I check it at work often and I can get ahold of other officers via text/discord if it's urgent! violentnacho@gmail.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.
