[Fire] Help Improve DPS on Heroic Garrosh

8 posts in this topic

Hello, my guild is currently progressing on Heroic Garrosh 10man and I am always at the bottom of the DPS metre. If anyone could give me any advice as to when I should use my cooldowns to optimize my DPS or anything with my gear or rotation I would really appreciate it. My armory link is http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/dreadmaul/Azayzel/simple

I will give you a link below with one of our longest attempts where i am doing much less DPS than our other range DPS. If you want to see more logs you can view the others, they are all public.

Hey, Warlog contacted me on Reddit, so I'm here to offer some advice. 

 

First, I'm not a super skilled Mage like I am a Warlock, but I know enough to analyze things.  Take my advice with a grain of salt.

 

I'm using this log as an analysis: http://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/jpb1D7GNzJBkfaYQ#fight=13&type=damage-done&source=1

 

1. Living Bomb uptime = 53%.  This is abysmal as you should always strive to have a VERY high uptime with your bomb. 

2. Your Combustion ticks look very low.  Are you using some sort of tracker to calculate the damage of Ignite?

3. Invoker's Energy uptime is good.

4. Transition 1 add damage is atrocious - no DPS should be below 5M in damage.  I'm not sure what Fire would do here, but you need to do better. 

 

I can't read into a lot of other Fire stuff - I'm mainly oriented towards Frost and Arcane.  It just looks like your damage is low.  My suggestion is to look into some logs of what other Fire Mages are doing and mimic their behavior.  You had a 75% crit rate with Fireball, so I would imagine your DPS would be significantly higher than 220k.

Hey, thank you for taking your time to help me out.

Regarding living bomb i'm not sure why I never checked my uptime on heroic garrosh it has been an issue in the past and I made sure to improve the uptime. I improved my WeakAuras to display living bomb so I should be doing better now especially since i'll be making sure to keep it up, thanks for pointing that out.

I am using myBigIgnite to track my ignite damage, sometimes at the start of the fight I don't get procs or I lag spike during my AT burst. Looking at the logs I linked I had my trinket procs up but only managed to get 3 Pyroblasts out before I used combustion which is awful, usually I get 4-6 unless i get a massive ignite before then. A possible reason it's bad on pull is because i have to move to the other side of the room to drop weapon while doing my opener, we could possibly try doing it next to the throne instead but phase 1 burst isn't a big deal compared to the rest of the fight. I just need to make sure the rest of my combustion ticks are not as low as they are now.

I have a feeling i'm not using my CDs at the optimal times other than that i'm not too sure what else I could improve to get more DPS out other than play the spec better or hoping I get good procs when I burst.

I haven't played Fire in some time, but Combustion damage is definitely low, and I would try to time Inferno Blast with the adds reaching Garrosh in phase 1 for maximum multidotting with the Pyroblast DoT, and Flamestrike is worth it with that many adds.

Bomb uptime is SUUUPER important for fire because it provides the pyromaniac debuff. Letting this drop off is a nightmare because it leads to lower Pyro damage which translates to smaller ignites which translates to smaller combustions. It's like a Domino effect that snowballs into low DPS.

Make sure you have HU/HS and PoM before you AT. cast fireball and. after the cast finishes At spam pyros, reset AT spam.pyros combust.

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which semi-recently transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some shit.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are in need of any competent DPS, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.

      [H] Salvation (est.2007) is a progression raiding guild on US-Cenarion Circle/Sisters of Elune.
      Objective
      Salvation is actively searching and recruiting players for current heroic content. What we look to do in the short-term is recruit players and gear them in our farm content. Mythic + will be run as well since it serves as another outlet to gearing up. By doing this we prepare them for our long-term goal, Mythic Mode Progression.
      We are now 11/11H. We are currently searching for players to bolster our roster to 20 for Mythic Mode Progression.
      Recruiting for Antorus
      Tanks- closed. (can still apply we can always find a place for you.) Melee- Rogue x1, Ret Paladin x1 Ranged- Mages x2, Hunter x1-2, Warlock x1, Balance Druid x1-2 Healers- Resto/Ele Shaman x1, Holy Paladin x1

      ***Exceptional applicants can feel free to sign up even if we aren't recruiting your class/spec. Outstanding applications will always be considered.
      We are also accepting players that engage in social aspects of the WoW community such as leveling, PvP, questing, dungeon finding, roleplaying and other challenging activites. We provide monthly guild events. For example, the Tournament of Tiny Champions. It’s a pet battle tournament where guildies compete with each other using 3-6 of their mightiest level 25 tiny champions. We are expanding this extremely fun side of Salvation so that everyone can join in on some action and prizes!
      Raiding Schedule
      Our schedule is as follows. We push content three times a week for 3 hours at a time starting at 6:00pm to 9:00pm PST Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Mondays. 
      Our Raiding Requirements
      You must be able to raid all three nights. Be on time for raid. Lateness will not be tolerated. Be able to play the optimal specialization for Legion raid encounters. (this requirement is more towards the pure dps classes and hybrid classes in some special cases) Come prepared with the knowledge of the Legion raid bosses and mechanics. Have Discord app installed and a working microphone to communicate. Discord browser and phone app is also acceptable. (Note: Some of these requirements will change as time goes on.)

      Take your talents to SouthBeach!
       
      We are a relatively new guild filled with a bunch of players from various backgrounds just looking to have a good time playing the game we all love together.
       
      We are not a hardcore guild but we do like to take our raid nights seriously and try and progress as much as we can. The guild is ran by several mythic raiders from previous expansions who are either returning to the game, or just looking for something a little less strenuous and have some fun with it.
       
      Although we do like to have fun we have a few rules when it comes to the raid:
       
      - Show respect to everyone else in the guild
      - Come prepared on raid nights, Flasks and Feasts will be provided
      - Listen to our raid leaders and don't be afraid to ask questions if you are unsure of anything, we are more than willing to help.
      - Have a good attitude!
       
      *But most importantly, have a good time!
       
      We have people online all through-out the week doing various things and just hanging in discord, we want you to be part of the community and not be afraid to pop into discord and just shoot the breeze.
       
      Friday: 9:00pm - 12:00pm Server Time (Central)
      Saturday: 9:00pm - 12:00am Server Time (Central)
       
      If you have any questions contact me at RicFlair#11116 (Bnet) or another officer at tjamorrow#1711(Bnet)

      Hi, i have just tried out some Antorus bosses in mythic and i saw, that my logs are so.... 
      In heroic difficulty my logs are better. So I have no idea, what am I doing wrong there... As I am doing the same thing, only with a bit more tactics...
      Can anybody give some tips, on this matter?
