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 :)

      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.
