Protection Paladin, Spike Damage

Hey guys,

 

I need some help with optimizing my protection paladin, for some reason i'm getting a lot of spiky damage especially at encounters like Jugger/Nazgrim while i still have SotR up.

 

So i was wondering if you guys could take a look at my logs, and maybe point me at some things that i can improve.

 

World of Logs:

- http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/rt-5rw4pmio19dmj8n8/

 

Armory:

- http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/ravencrest/Stefenie/simple

 

Besides that i got some troubles holding threat against my OT, even with using Hand of Salvation my OT seems to overtake me quickly ( For the record he's a druid ).

 

Any idea on how to change this or to improve?

 

Thanks a lot in advance!

Sorry for the wait, I've been fairly busy today. I will likely be unable to help you until thursday, but I might take a break during my work load tomorrow to break it down.

As for your problem being threat: I can't tell without armory, since worldoflogs is difficult to analyze, but I'm guessing its the fact that druids are amazing at damage and paladins are the worst.

 

Looking at your logs, you don't seem to be taking any avoidable damage, but your SotR uptime is really low. Having inconsistent and low uptimes will cause your healers tons of stress and make them have to bounce around a lot on what they want to heal, even entice raid healers to heal you when they shouldnt. Focus more on keeping yourself with higher uptimes. As a comparison, I have a 54% uptime to your 38% uptime, and we both use the stay-out strat. I recommend Holy Avenger for that reason, since theres a fair amount of time where you're not tanking/doing nothing, Holy Avenger becomes your best talent since it'll be active only when you want it.

 

Nazgrim has the same problem, your 37% to my 58%.

 

I recommend you fix up your rotation to generate more holy power, then use it correctly instead of waste it away by capping. The rotation never really changes from the rotation listed in the Prot Paladin guide on this website, and I recommend you touch up on it, and make sure to maximize your shield usage.

Armory link is broken due to Ravencrest servers still being down, i can't check any of my characters on that server right now.

Probably still maintenance.

 

Now for Holy Avenger, i will try that talent out and see how it goes.

Got another raid tomorrow is it ok to post my logs again?

Sounds good :)

 

I really recommend getting one of the amp trinkets (even if its a caster one) over that rooks talisman. I use two amps and it's just amazing. The vial is great too though, so dont sub it out on progression, or fights that are CD based.

Fouton just wondering what SoO fights you use Holy Avenger on?

I can see the benefit of it in fights where there are significant spike phases like Malkorak Blood rage.

I never specced into it because I'm not progression raiding and couldn't be bothered to add another cooldown :P

Yeah normally i use the amp one from Thok, but i don't have it equipped right now due to solo tanking Malkorok 25 man HC needed that trinket for it.

I use it on every fight. It's theoretically worse, but almost every fight in SoO you aren't tanking 100% of the time, or could benefit from additional cooldowns. I personally think it's just better due to it's real usage, rather than it's simmed value. Exceptions where I could argue DP can be better but I'm too lazy to switch: immerseus, FP, galakras (ground tank only), spoils and paragons

      Hi everyone,
      I, like many others, are trying to maximize DPS for their respective classes, mine in particular being ret paladin.
      In general, it seems like there are several sources of information for dps for each class.
      Icy Veins Mr Robot Raidbots (Simulation Craft) Warcraft Logs Each with its own set of criteria as to what determines high dps. And I find inconsistency when bouncing between the different sources. I want to understand what am I missing when it comes to each. I will lay out what I currently understand, and would like some feedback as to what I may not be considering in each as well as some advice as to what other options I could be exploring (resources) to further the insight into whats applicable for my current state.
      Icy Veins
      For Icy Veins, in particular, the stat weights, are mostly vaguely determined. From the ret guide:
       
      If I am reading this right, its Mastery >= Haste > Ver >= Crit = Str
      Mr Robot
      I use the addOn and I subscribe for the Best In Bags function. When I plug in my information in, the site recommends that I go with my 2pce t20 and balance around my legendaries with a focus on haste pieces (haste gems are emphasized).
      https://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/simulator/report/a42136294c7f40b2b7ee78023306d786
      Stat weights as listed in MrRobot:
      MrRobot Stat Weights
      From what I am seeing, Crit is most emphasized, and the one crit gem + ring crit enchants were originally recommended by MrRobot here. Also another notable thing here is haste being way behind crit's potential.
      RaidBots (Simc)
      For RaidBots, I use the addOn, and play around with various items I hoard, and use the stat weights functions. Generally the feedback I get here are to stick with the current gem setup and with regards to stat weights, emphasize at my current setup with crit. It also says I should drop some of my high ilvl pieces (935 head, and 960 chest) for 4pce (915 head, lfr 890 chest)
      Gear simc:
      https://www.raidbots.com/simbot/report/d3Qbkf6nqpoP4bxQ9YB2m
      Stat Weights:
      https://www.raidbots.com/simbot/report/6NkVYwEaTW26FxD4wBwey4
      Vers -> crit -> mastery -> haste -> str
      (versitality first?)
      Warcraft Logs
      I mostly use Warcraft Logs to check what the top dps players (ret pallys) are hitting and what setups are they running. I don't want to specifically link player armories in here, but upon some investigation, you'll find most are just stacking haste
      ---
      I understand stat weights are relative, however it seems like everyone has different priorities, one says mastery, another vers, another crit, another haste?
      Help me understand.
      Thanks,
      Exploit

      Hi, several players told me, that my warrior is not having enough HP as he should with current item level.
      Here is the link to armory
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/burning-legion/wienkszy

      How can I push my HP higher, is there any way I can increase it ?  Trinkets, relics, items. Am I  missing something ?
