Am I underperforming?

5 posts in this topic

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.

      Ok so let me start out by saying my weapon is lvl 885(fire artifact) and has the following relics equipped: 

      Fires of Heaven 855 +10% Pyro (Fire)
      Raven's sight 865 +20% FS (Arcane)
      Fires of Heaven 845 +10% Pyro (Fire)
      (I know it doesnt add 10% each)

      i have in my bag i have:

      Seawitch's Foci 840 +12% Ignite (Arcane)
      Sizziling Fang 875 +12% Ignite (Fire)
      Soulforge Ember 835+12% Ignite (Fire)
      Molten Giant's Eye 860+3% Fire crit (Fire)
      Fires of Heaven 840 +10% Pyro (Fire)

      Ok last time i took out an Ignite relic i lost 40-50k dps. I put in the 855 Fires of Heaven relic and just did not stack up even though it was a 10ilvl increase. So my question is should i go tripple Ignite? or maybe double ignite with the crit relic too. I care a lot more about mythic + dps more than raid so keep that in mind. it doesnt seem like the pyro one is very good compared to ignite. Also if anyone can offer an explanation as to why i lost so much dps by switching in the supposedly best relic (pyro) that would be great. My best guess is that i was on some kind of soft cap with mastery and that it did a lot more dps but idk

      I think the best two options are running three ignite for insane cleave damage in mythic plus or, Sizziling Flame, Molten Giant, and Seawitch.

      Since 7.1.5 it seems that Cinderstorm and/or Meteor are valid options and often outperform Kindle. 
      How to properly include them in you rotation? Would be great if the guide would highlight the use of them.
      Questions like:
      Cinderstorm > Rop > Combustion > Instant Pyro > and so on  , does this really work to get 5 stacks of pyretic incantation? Cinderstorm on cooldown or only as filler if FB is on CD with HS up? When to use Meteor in Single Target Rotation?

      Hey All!
      So I have not figured out simming yet so I am hoping some nice, experienced mages could help me out? So the trinkets I am using currently are an 885 wriggiling sinew and 855 shock-baton for single target. After reading the new BiS trinkets on this site I am a little confused. I'm still using RoP because of sinew but is sinew bad now? My DPS is not bad but I would still prefer to be utilizing my character to the max.
      I have a 875 urn, 870 spiked tongue, and 880 plaguehive. Would either of those be better on ST?
      Really appreciate any comments / help, thank you!

      Trying to get myself geared better but seem to be having problems.  Artifact is almost full on fire.  Just having to unlock the 3rd trait is being a pain.

      Hello everyone
      My guild and I raided EN last sunday and cleared normal mode easy enough and because we still had time, we started a heroic run aswell. For HC, I started a log that includes the boss kills Nythendra, Il'gynoth and Dragons of Nightmare.
      I am able to extract quite a bit of information for healers and DDs, but it seems that I don't really know what to look for, when trying to determine MY performance as a Blood DK (Yovana). I'm sure the information is there, but when it comes to Tanks in general, I'm struggling a little bit.
      In general, I think I'm doing ok because I don't get complaints from the healers and I don't really die, but if someone could point out obvious mistakes or inefficiencies, that would be very helpful.
      What catches my eye is the rather high amount of overheal of DS with 40%. I know that this is not really good, but then again, if I'm not taking any substantial amount of dmg, I'm not gonna sit on my runes and instead deal dmg with DS. So that explains the overheal a bit.
      Note that we had to top off our group with random players (1 random healer and several random DDs).
      Log: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/K6pPWQz2jGCrX9aM#boss=-2&difficulty=0&type=summary
      Thank you all for any help in this matter and have a nice day
      Xantrias
