Windwalker analysis

2 posts in this topic

I'm trying to analyze one of my raiders and sadly I know next to nothing about monks other than what the basic guides say her on Icy veins, askmrrobot, and noxxic.  I need some help figuring out how I can help this player improve.  Ill link the armory and the logs from our last two runs.

Apologies, I don't have a whole lot of time to make this post, but I'm going to try to mention what I can.  I'm going to use the approach of teaching you what to look for, so that you can audit them or other WWs on a regular basis,.

 

They're having issues managing their Chi Brew, and that's probably the largest contributor to DPS that you can look at.  So how it works is this:

 

It's a spell that gives you 2 Chi and 5 Tigereye Brew.  It has two charges, and each charge has a 45 second recharge rate.  Only one can recharge at a time, so if you use both charges, it takes 45 seconds from the first ones use to gain one charge back, then 45 seconds from when that one was ready to recharge the second one.

 

Tigereye Brew is a resource they gain through normal gameplay, with a max of 20.  Up to 10 can be spent at a time, for a 6% per stack boost, and it's recommended to most often use it at only 10 stacks (unless you're coming to the end of the fight)

 

The best use of Chi Brew is during the opener, when you have lust/trinkets, using both stacks of Chi Brew, and immediately rolling Tigerseye Brew's damage buff (since you just gained 10 Tigereye Brew, you can spend all 10 immediately for a 60% gain).

 

After that, you need to be sure to keep at least one of the two charges of Chi Brew on cooldown, or else it's just a waste.  It's usually best to just keep both charges rolling, but you can save it for a moment when you're low energy and spending the chi on a another attack, instead of having to wait for energy to Jab again to spend it.

 

Better Chi Brew usage alone should bring their DPS contribution up significantly, but other things to look out for are:

 

Energy capping outside of Energizing Brew.

Chi capping.  You can hover over the plateaus to see attacks that generated Chi that was wasted.

Energizing Brew usage.  (Shouldn't be exactly on cooldown, but should be used pretty consistently close to it's cooldown, say within 20 seconds)

 

Rising Sun Kick use vs cooldown.  (Fight duration in seconds / 8 = number of optimal uses.  For example, Sha of Pride was 4:14, or 254 seconds long.  They should've cast ~31, and it should've been a much higher damage contributor.)

 

If you have any other questions, let me know!

 

Edit:

 

I also made a WeakAura to track Chi Brew's cooldowns:

As well, while they're gear is good now, they should be aiming for 2 1H weapons with a similar ilvl, and after they swapped over to that, they'd have to be mindful of the Crit cap imposed on dual wielding.  (Which doesn't apply the same to 2hers; their crit cap is much much higher.)

      Hey Gang, would you mind looking at my logs and let me know where I can improve my rotation as an assassination rogue.  I notice that all of my best logs have a significant amount of Poison Bomb and I don't like praying to RNJesus.  I am hoping there are some things I can do to hit top dps.  
      Here is my armory. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/emerald-dream/Elodar/simple.  I know my Mastery is low but lately I have had crap luck on drops.  One of the options I have to bring up my Mastery is to drop Insignia of Ravenholdt +Well Flattened Wristguards and change to Denial of Half Giants + an 890 Spellblades Gemmed Signet but Denial is a sub rogue legendary.  This brings my agility to 34248, mastery to 137%, and my crit to 28%.  I tried running this combo with the higher mastery and did not feel like I was doing more dps even though the Sims say I should.  
       
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/dF3qCynDbvGrVAh6#fight=14&type=damage-done&source=186  This is one of my better logs where I think I did most thing correct.  Please look at this and let me know if there is something I am missing.

      So I've been pushing and pushing to get my DPS up over the course of the new expansion.  I've managed to bag my self the legendary shoulders and feet. I've been looking at logs and trying to improve things. I learnt a new opener (which massively improved my dps) and got my crit up (as I noticed other rogues had much higher crit than me).
      And now I just don't know what to do. I just can't seem to get better!
      I'll put a link to logs from the last heroic nighthold we did. It wasn't my best night performance wise  anyway (i'm playing on a potato and we had a huge raid group - fps sat between 6-15 for the whole raid). I think I'm doing something wrong with my main rotation when compared to the other rogue than joined us but I just don't know what it is. I'm stumped.

      So if anyone can see obvious mistakes then please shout at me so I can fix them. It's getting really frustrating!    You should be able to get to past logs through this link too.

      Hello, since 7.1.5 my raid performances dropped dramatically. From checkmywow I fire too few AiS, but I'd ask for more analisys as I feel I'm constantly spamming AiS.

      Armory: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/pozzo-delleternita/Khazgor/simple

      Logs:
      3/20 - https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/gRAhwJpM1c8KXDLV
      3/22 - https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/HCRpntjF4913D6Vq
      Many thanks for anyone that would help me sorting this mess.
