Improving DPS output as Destro

Recommended Posts

Hi there


I'm looking for an advice to improve my DPS as destro. I think I don't execute the priority list correctly as I'm not high enough in dmg for my item level (581).

No need to check Protectors, I'm not really able to play affli and I don't have Gear to switch.


Personaly I think I don't use havoc enough.


Maybe change my opener rota? What I try for opener:


precast incinerate


2x conflag

incinerate till 2 backdraft left (mostly is works for me that I have about 20 ember)

then 2x CB


Generally I try to stack ember up to 30-35 then use CB without procc, and when I get a procc to use all embers.


In advance, thanks for help :)

Looking at IJ log-


Immolate uptime is low. 


Incinerate damage is higher than CB, that's a big red flag


Take a look at this graph: 





Link here: http://tinyurl.com/m7y3eml


While I don't see too many glaring problems, you ideally want to cast every CB inside of a proc with the exception being capping embers.


Speaking of capping embers, you did so twice, but not for very long 6 seconds at 40 and 4 seconds at 40. More than enough time to cast a cb and not waste the embers you're generating.


Your opener is actually off.


You're going




from 2-6 second time part you didn't do anything, at 6 seconds you continued by casting


DS (why here with this?)




You might say you're doing the opener listed, but your opener is pretty sloppy tbh.


Ideal opener should look like this:


Pre pot

Pre cast incinerate




Incinerate till 2 embers (regardless of stacks of backdraft)



DS at the start allows your immolate and all of your incinerates to aid in getting to 2 embers as soon as possible.





Little side note, is it possible for you to upload logs in English? Not really a big deal, I figured out what I needed to. Just would have made it easier for most of users here.

Hey, thanks for your post smile.png


Maybe immolate is low because we don't dmg in p2, so only stand around. But I think generally it could be better, as I see by myself it falls off some times.


With the CB, thats what I thought, comparing to the other WL in raid, I mostly have about 5-10 CBs less, on same Incenerat casts. And thats where the DMG is missing.

So if I try to improve the capping, there would be about 2-3 CBs more in one fight.


You are right, at first bosses I didn't followed the right opener, I think I messed up the english names of the spells *blush*

I think Nazgrim was better there.


And sorry for the german logs, never thought about that biggrin.png

I hope you don't think I just want to justify myself, its more that my english ist not the best smile.png


Edit: What I saw what also maybe made differenc between me and specialy Lìssàndra I'm comparing to, is the casting of CB under 20%. And compared to him, the CD management of DS during fight.

I've had to learn a fair bit of German because of logs and WoW. I also just enjoy how Chaos Bolt is written in German.

Any advices about CB under 20% Recklessfear?

The decision and justification for Chaos Bolt vs Shadowburn under 20% is not worth the time it took me to write this sentence out.

There's a thread around here some where on all these nerds arguing about it :P


Easy answer: SB 


Hard answer: Lots of crit buffs? SB. Not so many crit buffs? CB. 


tbh just stick to SB really...

      Intergalactic is an AOTC/Mythic progression guild now recruiting for Shadowlands raiding and M+.  We are a group of friends who were interested in the fun of raiding while understanding that life responsibilities take precedent. We are a combination of new and returning players from various expansions. While social players are always welcomed, we are more specifically looking for players who are interested in a fun, relaxed environment to progress through content. We do run M+ keys, transmog/gear and achievement runs when possible.
      Intergalactic did not run as a guild during Bfa. We had members getting bored with Bfa content and decided to spend their time on other things. We did do some content with some of the guilds in our community group. Our last guild raids were in Legion. The majority of our core has come back in anticipation for Shadowlands. We are excited to be back as an active guild on Korgath and it's connected realms. We look forward to having you join us!  (Korgath is connected with  Cairne, Cenarius, Frostmane, Ner’zhul, Perenolde, and Tortheldrin.
      What we expect from all of our Members:
      In short, “Be excellent to each other.” We’re not looking for members filled with drama and toxicity. We’re all friends here and while we may not all agree on a particular subject, it can be discussed in a friendly, constructive, and respectful manner. A good sense of humor is a must. We aren’t looking for Members who only log in on raid days. Other events will be on the calendar, as well, and we hope that you’ll sign up and attend.
      What we expect from our Raiders:
      Raiders are to sign up on the calendar for events. If you are going to be late or if you will be unable to attend at the last-minute, please notify the GM, Raid Lead or an Officer as soon as possible.
      Raiders are expected to log in approximately 15 minutes prior to raid start and be outside the raid with consumables and enhancements. We will provide feasts, cauldrons, and repairs. We can provide extra food, enchants, gems when available, all we ask for is either a monetary donation or help with crafting materials.
      Raiders are expected to be prepared with knowledge of raid mechanics, as well as class-specific knowledge. Know your strengths and weaknesses and be willing to openly receive and give helpful constructive criticism when needed.
      Raiders are expected to be progression-oriented, with the understanding that some mechanics/fights may take multiple attempts. We can’t progress through raids without everyone working as a team to try and work through the mechanics.
      Raiders who are capable of playing multiple classes/specs may be asked to switch to a more appropriate character to work through particular mechanics. We maintain a smaller roster and sometimes rotate people in based on fight specifications.
      Raid Days/Times: Wednesday/Friday at 8pm Server/9pm EST, possible carryover on Saturdays
      Roles Needed: Ranged DPS and/or multi-spec players
      We require:
      Deadly Boss Mods
      Details! Damage Meter (preferred)
      If you think that we would be a good fit, please send a DM to Northeos, Nanami or Thawn. Or simply add us on Battle Tag.

      Hey Everyone, 
      So i play a Demon Hunter Lvl 120 with iLVL 464.
      My DPS in dungeons is just so low compared to everyone else and i dont know why. I was in a M8+ earlier and the ilvl 450 Tank was doing more DPS than I was. 
      Any tips? Check out my gear/character, i think its all setup right. I went through the Icy Veins Demon Hunter guide and stat priority etc... Got a rotation, but something isnt right. Im always last on DPS even with 440 ilvl players in the group.
      Thanks for reading!

      Guild: Dawn of the Dead | http://www.dotd.org   Faction: Horde | Server: Zul'jin (PvE) | Timezone: EST   Current Progression: 8/9M BoD | 2/2H CoS | 8/8M Uldir CE   We've been raiding max size raids continuously since WoW has been released and are the only guild to have done so here on Zul'jin. We have strong leadership, no drama, and plans to keep raiding for years to come. Unlike many guilds, we're not recruiting for the short term, and we don't over-recruit.   Website: www.dotd.org
        Raid Times: Our schedule is 8-11 EST Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.   Needs: We are a small guild, and we expect high attendance. As such, we recruit people to raid, and desire people who can step in and contribute immediately. We don’t recruit people to sit around, so all spots are for raiders who can expect to be in most every raid.   We are currently looking to add skilled and reliable:
      Ranged DPS: High: Shadow Priest, Mage Medium: Warlock 1 Healer:
      High: Resto Shaman, Mistweaver Monk
      *ALL exceptional applicants will be considered regardless of the class.   What we ask of you:   Effort: Not all applicants come from highly progressed guilds, and that’s okay, but it does mean that you need to be prepared. We recruit the player, not the gear, but we do ask that you have some current experience. You need to have the best gear available to you with top end enchants and gems where available. You also need to be able to display an understanding of your class mechanics, role in a raid, and ability to learn new fights.   Attitude: It’s a game. We play for fun. How you fit in with the guild is taken very seriously. We’re a bunch of mostly 18-30 guys and girls who have fun playing together. While we have a good time, we also know when it’s time to buckle down and work hard.   Skill: The best way to determine skill is to see you in a raid. Because we don’t wish to have anyone transfer that we’re not serious about, be able to express your knowledge of your class and why you’re an exceptional player who would be an asset and is worth a shot. Gear will come with time. Skill will not. Impress us with your knowledge of your class and gameplay mechanics. Feel free to share any logs, theorycrafting, or other work you've done.   Commitment: We make a commitment to you, and ask you to do the same to us. A raid takes a team of more than 20 individuals working together. We rely on you to show up to raids, research your class and new fights, respect your fellow players, and notify us when you are unavailable. You rely on us for gear, experience, and coordination. It's a large investment of our time to train and gear new players, and we ask the same investment on your part so that we can each benefit.   We have a variety of informational resources available to prospective applicants on our web site: http://www.dotd.org-- please refer to our "Applications" forum for detailed information. Also feel free to visit us on WoWProgresss for more information and kill videos! http://www.wowprogress.com/guild/us/...wn+of+the+Dead   Should you wish to speak to someone in-game, please don't hesitate to reach out to an officer directly, whisper Alloren (Alloren#1606), Xanah (Xana#1662) or Jeare (Jeare#1759).   We look forward to hearing from you soon!
