I recently returned to ret after running prot for the majority of mists, and I'm still trying to get back into the swing of things. Any possible suggestions/constructive criticism for what I can do to help boost my DPS? WoL from Flex 1 and armory attached.

If you could, please do an lfr or something with your usual rotation and so on using http://www.warcraftlogs.com it is both easier on us to help you and a much better tool for you to learn with. As for your armory I'm not seeing anything pop out to me, you do need to replace some pieces to get more haste, and I would truly suggest using Selfless Healer over EF especially since EF requires you to use HP.

What I notice: Never used a Divine Storm on Immerseus 25. There's no way the adds were 100% always spread out to make DS not valuable! Also, since you have your 4set, there's also no way you got 0 procs!

 

Try to remember that a free procced Divine Storm is valued just above Exorcism in your rotation, so burn it off even if its a single target hit. Also remember that even if there are 2 targets together, Divine Storm is listed as better than TV. This means you'll often be using Divine Storm, even if it feels like padding. If you Divine Storm the adds on immerseus, theres no padding. If you Divine Storm all the protectors, its not padding because they all need to die in the end. The reflections on Sha might be padding since they die so fast, but no one really gets yelled at for killing those faster, so you can also Divine Storm them.

 

As Conquest said, it's almost impossible to get good log reads from WoL now, since we've been spoiled with WCL. Data from WoL can often be misleading, so I'd like to strengthen the reminded to use WCL, which will give us excellent data such as # of casts per spell.

My first question: Are you using anything to track inquisition. Inquisition is a big part of what helps our damage and your uptime on it is reasonably high, but you should be aiming for 99-100% on every fight.

 

Next: I'm seeing a very low count of divine storm usage. With none being cast on immerseus, this leads me to believe you aren't taking advantage of your 4 piece proc, which is both very powerful, and free. So I'd suggest you find some way to track that.

 

Those are the 2 bigs things I really noticed that will help. But I'd also suggest you work on using Execution sentence as soon as your Ancient Power (guardian of ancient kings' stacks) hits 12 stacks, or when you have one or both trinket str procs up as that will give you maximum damage from snapshots.

      <Pickle Palace> is a recently formed guild on Illidan, but is made up of veteran players who wanted to take a step back from semi-hardcore raiding. We are currently raiding Mythic Antorus (9/11), with our goal being to finish it out before the end of the expansion. Our community is actively playing outside of raid time, pushing M+ and hanging out on discord.

      We raid on a 2 day schedule. Our raid days are Tuesday and Wednesday 9-12 EST. And will be adding a 3rd raid day for BfA! (Thursday or Monday)

      We are currently recruiting,

      All Exceptional Ranged DPS

      Expectations
      Have a great attitude every night. Be prepared for every raid; this includes purchasing consumables and studying encounter strategies. We provide feast/codex/flasks other consumables are your responsibility Zero tolerance policy for criticizing others' performance. Officers will take care of it, worry about yourself and yourself only. Be critical of your performance and take time outside of raiding hours to analyze warcraftlogs for personal improvement. Have fun. We love playing with each other in a friendly, team-oriented, boss-crushing atmosphere -- and you should too! Must be able to tolerate adult language

      Hi everyone. I just killed HC Varimathras and I was surprised by my low damage. There was not second time warp because we used the first one at 20% HP but I think I should get higher numbers. Can anyone tell me what did I do wrong? Was it really only in TW? I do not think so :/.

      Looking for a fun, casually serious progression guild? Hordeland Security could be your new home! We started at launch, and have raided on Blackhand, Baelgun, and now Turalyon. 

      We currently raid on Tuesdays and Thursdays 7:00- 9:15 Central Time. We understand that no one has an unlimited amount of time to play. We raid with a fun, casual, yet goal oriented focus; we achieve AotC in current content and then progress into Mythic. We also have a few that pvp, and we've been known to also do mog/achievement runs.
      Interested? Drop us a line!

      lil ol' me - Maplefire#1200 - (mention you're from the Icy Veins thread in the friend request so my brain won't explode)
      Thanks for your consideration - happy raiding!
