Help me improve

Recommended Posts

So at this point I know my guild is carrying this toon, I only boosted 3 lockouts ago and it's my first time playing a ranged DPS class. However, my guild really needed a warlock so I said I'd do it and started to learn. I'm putting pretty heavy expectations on myself though for my first ranged DPS class and really want to make sure I'm up to par.


This is the logs for our progression on Heroic Malkorok last night, can you guys glance over them and see what I can do to help myself fundamentally? The gear will come in time but bad habits need to be fixed now.

Overall, looks pretty good.  Could have delayed your CBs at the end of the fight a bit more to get more with Dark Soul, but you got 2/3 I think.  Considering gear, average CB looks good, Immolate uptime is great.  Doomguard use is good. 


Biggest recommendation is to utilize your 4pc proc better.  If you need to, utilize this buff for Chaos Bolt.  It's worth 50% of a Dark Soul, so it's quite potent if utilized.  Also, snapshot Immolate with the 4pc to gain more Embers faster.  You've got a good understanding of Destruction - with some better gear, your numbers will climb.

Thanks for the advice! Yeah I only got my 4p on Tuesday when I got Tier Chest and Gloves, heroic boots and heroic helm haha. I'll start working on that right away.

      Hey guys. Been looking at logs from my raid and comparing with top locks.

      This is me
      This is some other dude...
      Now look at immolate.. Why has his hit 100 times, while mine has hit 36, with almost 100% uptime? Am im going full retard with my class this expansion?

      My dps is not the worst I guess, but I feel like it could be better than that.
      I dont have any specific boss, on which i'm underperforming. I understand that I wont do better then affi on for example councile but this 70-80k that i'm doing right now is kinda low. (?) There is no many logs with my current ilvl, but I think this is enought data to analyze:
      About my rotation:
       Battle start: 2x confla, and inci until I hit 3 embers (in this moment first ring and prepot are still ON), then dark soul and spam of Chaos bolt.
      then normal rotation:
       - keep Immo up
       - Confla, 
       - Chaos bolt on 3+ embers
       - Dark soul when 2 charges, spam Chaos bolt, and keepeing 1 charge for ring/bl
       - when 2 targets trying to use Havoc every cd with Chaos bolt
       - Doomguard od BL
      This is pretty much it. 
      So, any ideas? ; >

      Hey folks! So, I've been a bit stumped about my performance on Archimonde. I usually don't have so much trouble keeping up, but being last week after week is killing my pride!
      I don't seem to have the same performance issues on other bosses outside of Mannoroth and Archimonde, so maybe I'm just missing something completely in the fray of these encounters?
      Anyway, I would greatly appreciate some outside opinions here and maybe have a discussion about something you may find that I'm just not seeing.

      Hey guys, i'm just looking for some extended assistance with Archimonde (H) as I've still yet to land a kill on this fucker gentleman.
      My guild has tried a number of strategies such as the normal 2 banish group strat, the all in on the 2nd banish to 1-shot the Netherwalker and get out asap to nuke infernals & the boss strat, and others. Regardless of the strategy we use we most commonly wipe on the 2nd set of infernals and it just seems like our boss damage is really low when we really need it in that last phase.
      For the fight I usually run Destruction because it's does well to kill the Deathcallers & Doomfires, and i also usually get sent in banish groups. Affliction seems to be good for boss damage and has decent add damage, but in my opinion Destruction seems just better suited for it.
      Anyway, looking for any general advice to improve on this fight, it's pretty annoying not knowing how to push myself further to land this kill.
      Recent Logs (I am the only lock)
      I am aware the class trinket (destro) is lack luster on the Archimonde fight unless you're able to micro it well, but I have yet to get a mythic ore trinket and the only substitute I have at the moment is the Prophecy trinket, which is also pretty meh. Would forking over the 40k for a Sandman's trinket be worth it in this case?
      Also a few self-notes from looking at the logs, it seems:
      a.) My immolate uptime could be better, would love to bump it to a consistent 90%~.
      b.) Tried to havoc as many times as I could but perhaps it's simply not enough.
      c.) My damage seems to just die off in the last phase, perhaps panicking or a lot of movement to avoid the RoC damage (it's worth noting that a few pulls we tried just healing through the RoC damage, which might lead to why people get hit by it so many times).
      d.) My Dark Soul usage seems pretty off, will look to fix.
      f.) Perhaps KJ's Cunning?
      Any advice is appreciated.
