Am I underperforming?

Hey all,

 

I've been playing around with Fire for about a month now and while my DPS has improved, I still feel like I'm underperforming given my gear. I have included a log of a near-full SoO 10m I completed recently, and I was hoping some kind soul would be able to take a read through them and tell me what (if anything) I am doing wrong.

 

Note: I did not have either my current bracers or the Pennyroyal ring equipped, as I got them during this run.

Here is an armory link for my mage as well:

Thanks in advance!

Hi Wumbology,

 

only looked at Malkorok and Galakras. Your Bomb Uptime is way to low (only 75% on Malk, 64% on Galakras) and to the amount of casted Bombs I assume you do not snapshot your bombs (start doing so wink.png. IE Uptime could be a bit higher (91% is not that bad). Don't use Slow Fall on Malkorok, just blink when you are thrown in the air.

 

You upgraded your Pennyroyal ring although your KTT (which I assume you had before the raid already) is still without upgrades. Upgrade KTT as soon as possible.

 

I'm not 100% sure but I think that even as fire you would chosse Nether Tempest on Galakras. (According to IVs Fire Mage Guide LB is correct)

 

I leave the rest to Kver wink.png

 

PS: Just for Comparison I do about 20-30k DPS more on Malkorok and ~ 40k on Galakras with iLvl 554 as Frost.

Hi,

 

First of all, you seem to be a bit heavy on the haste, and only 13.3k crit is not the best amount, but it should work. Your gemming and reforging seems almost fine. I would absolutely upgrade that Trinket though. 

 

That Living Bomb uptime needs to go up, on Malkorok you only had 89.51% Pyromaniac uptime, and you ideally want to have that up for every spell which profits from it. You forgot to use a potion during the fight(Or you used it too late during the pull and were unable to use it again but I can't tell from this), you want to capture that in your 2nd Alter Time. Invoker's Energy seems to be fine on Juggernaut and Siege as well. I'd advise you to simply be careful and remember to keep that up.

 

Which addon do you use to track Living Bomb? Your uptimes indicate that you do really try, so you might want to look into a different way of tracking them.

 

I analysed your combustions during pulls, they are absolutely fine.

 

My advise would be to track your buffs/debuffs a bit better, focusing on LB uptime, and simply getting more crit. Do not bother snapshotting LB, just focus on its uptime.

 

I also wouldn't worry that much; you are 558 ilvl as fire without a lot of crit, and nobody in your guild is pulling high dps. I'd highly advise getting the rest of your raid members on here as well, especially the warlock.

 

Edit: Actually, for your gear, go here and press update from armory, then optimise: http://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/gear/usa/mal'ganis/wumbology

Hey guys,

Thanks for taking time out of your day to respond, I appreciate it.

I've set up a WA for living bomb, as well as one to alert me when it's dropped: hopefully that fixes things.

Is KTT worth upgrading vs saving my valor for a BBoY? I can't seem to find any actual values for the trinkets this their, so that was my original plan.

I am raid leader in a 25 man HC guild, I've been killing bosses that drop trinkets for years. I still have a flex KTT. Definitely upgrade it.

      It's a few months later (what with delays and distractions and getting old and all that), but I just wanted to start by saying THANK YOU to those who helped me with amazing advice on levelling my fire mage alt. It made all the difference - you guys rock.
      I finally dinged 110 the other day and went into a few instances and raid finders with her. As a caster noob - I main a feral - there are a few things I've noticed and am unsure about.
      The guide here on Icy Veins recommends Dragon's Breath for AoE of 3+ grouped mobs. I may have overlooked something, but I can't for the life of me find anything on the *range* of Dragon's breath. The animation makes me think I need to stand right in front of the mobs to hit them, but that can't be right, I'm supposed to be ranged and standing a good bit away - aren't I?  During levelling, I've gotten used to casting Living Bomb regardless of how many mobs I'm facing. The guide has it exclusively as an AoE ability. Is that true, or is it worth casting on a single target (boss)? Does meteor "work" on huge bosses who are standing behind a ledge/cliff, in the manner of Engine of Souls (Desolate Host) or Garothi Worldbreaker? I try placing it as close to the edge of the "cliff" as possible, does that mean it'll hit the boss?

      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.

      Hay,
       
      I seem to struggle to get better DPS. I figured out that i used chaos strike and blade dance to less. and i should use less Throw glaive and fellrush. 
      But i stil seem to have trouble getting my dps on.  Please take a look on the logs at the 14th. 
      I really dislike using the "eye beam build" (it feel slow to me) so i still use the 2221311 build.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, PUBG, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
