Hello,

I've been a frequent reader of this forum and i love the discussions and answers that are given. Since i have only played WoW for a year i havn't felt experienced enough to be a part of the forum, but now i have a question of my own.

Now to my question/problem. My SIM-dps is about 362k but i'm usually doing around 300k, which is far less then my SIM-dps. How bad is that? And how much can my fellow raiders expect from me?

On HC Malkorok which is almost only single target, i do around 300k, on HC protectors, i do around 300k and now last we are doing HC spoils and i'm around 300k.

My own opinion is that with more then one target i should be over my SIM-dps.

Second question, is there a good macro to use in the start of a fight? I usually prepot, RoF to get the procs, dark soul, synapse (engineering tinker), doomguard, Immolate, conflagrate, 3x incinerate and get out 2 CB:s before my prepot runs out.

But just to cast my 2 cd:s, doomguard and immolate takes a few seconds even if they are instant. Am i doing something wrong? And some say the doomguard have the stats i have when i cast it during the whole time he is active, some say it changes if my cd:s run out. What is the correct way of using him?

I'm rhankful of any answer :)

Post your logs.  Can't help you if we don't see what you're REALLY doing despite you saying you do it all well.

 

% of Simcraft DPS is a pretty terrible way to analyze your DPS.  Simcraft models single target, zero interference DPS of which exists zero times in Siege of Orgrimmar.  It's also possible to beat the Simcraft DPS, so the scale is meaningless.  A good value of DPS to be at can be found at Raidbots where you can see your DPS compared to others as a percentile. 

 

Rain of Fire shouldn't be in your opener unless there are multiple targets to hit.  It's too valuable of a GCD at the start when most procs are live.  Your prepot should last 22-24 seconds into combat and should be the last thing wearing off.  You want 2 CBs in the first 10 seconds which sounds difficult to do with the plethora of spells you're using including Doomguard.  The difference in using him at the start of battle, middle, or end of battle is less than half of a good Chaos Bolt.  His usage is rather flexible and you shouldn't fret using him at the start especially at the cost of a Chaos Bolt in the first 10 seconds.

What Zag said.

 

 

SimC is 5 kinds of useless for warlocks right now.

 

A note with RaidBots, you need to be uploading to worldoflogs.com for it to track and even then it will sometimes not track it right, but this is a uncommon bug so it shouldn't be to much of a worry.

 

When you post logs, please use warcraftlogs.com

My logs are to messed up for now and i know of many things that can be much better so logs won't be linked for the time being sorry =/ when i have cleaned it all upp a bit i will post them but that can take a few weeks. I have only been raiding on HC for 8 weeks and still trying to master the mechanics.

Mkay then, i will take RoF out of the opening, only used it to get the procs to get as much of my two first CB:s as possible. But still when i reach a total damage of 10m on a fight, all the other dps are ahead of me by so much as 7m so i think there is a lot in my opening that i miss.

Checked raidbots and wow, basically i suck :)

Thanks for the answer Master, much appreciated :)

      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.

Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.

      - 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.

      Hi, so I'd like to think that have got the fury rotation down, I've been using the Icy veins guide and some pointers from MMO-Champion. I don't think I have any big issues apart from the BC with CoF trinket, like if it's worth waiting for other cooldowns like OF to be up with BC, that's my main question. 
      So I have linked my logs for some PuG raiding the other week, so if someone is up for the task of analyzing them for me, that'd be great. Sorry if my sentences are wrong or weird, I'm really hungover...

      ( In Goroth Normal, you will see some downtime in the middle of the fight. I got disconnected that is the answer:/ )

      Hello,

      I've been back to WoW for about month or two now and got fairly decent at playing BM hunter, but definitely feel my dps can be better in some situations.
      Overall my stats from equipment seem ok, but I definitely lack legendaries so far. Try to clear as much as i can each week to get more legos, but it's slow.
      Potentially having t19 2pc would help as well.

      I switched to stomp build recently. I like that better than df. I guess a bit easier :) than keeping track of trying to keep 3 stacks up. Although I can go back easy enough.
      For the most part I use skills asap, so likely some dps loss is there due to not timing things together.

      Thanks for any input!
