I know this has been said many times on this board; however, I am still having issues. My PVP as demo is great I love it. The big BUT here is that when I raid I seem to preform rather poorly. I am not new to the game by any means, and i have raided successfully in the past as a tank. I cannot for the life of me find the disconnect. I am pulling 25k in a heroic single target with a 449 ilvl. I have not enchanted some lower end peices and I am forced to use some pieces that have spirit on them (the int and mastery bonus made up for it in comparison), I am just stuck. My roation in SBSS, MG as filler, popping CD's as appropriate. My rotation is the same thing thats listed on this site so I am just lost. Any help would be appreciated. I am at school and when I logged I was in my PVP gear so Ill comment with my armory link. Thanks in advance!!

449 ilvl explains most of your DPS. You've got to believe me when I say my DPS sucked from 442 ilvl (when I dinged 90) to about 350 ilvl. When I got up to 463, I almost doubled my 442 ilvl DPS. It's easier to hit cap and you gain more secondary stats as well as everything else. Your gems and enchants will contribute a significant portion of more stats. I'm guessing at your 449 ilvl you're likely not hit capped which is your biggest DPS gain. You're also not likely itemized correctly pulling you down further. Until you get some gear, your will be crappy...that's just all it is. If you can, look into buying the Contender's cloth pvp set from a Tailor. I gift these to all my guildies who ding 90 so they can instantly queue for heroics, but clothies can actually wear them. It requires 36 bolts of Windwool cloth (180 cloth/9 stacks) and will boost your off pieces until you get better.

I have a full set of PVP gear (this is my strong suit), but I always feel super bad using pvp gear in PVE, maybe I just need to get over that. I am almost hit capped, and I use a food buff to get me over that hump. Just to clarify what did you mean by "not itemized correctly" I just want to make sure I am getting it. Thanks again

You should NOT feel bad for using PvP gear in PvE anymore. They have decided not to penalize PvP gear from PvE stats. Take a look at your contender's set. Your gear has Stamina, Intellect, and 4 of the following: Mastery, Hit, Crit, Haste, PvP Power, PvP Resilience. Your PvP gear will always include the two PvP stats as well as 2 of the 4 secondary stats. Your PvE gear will only have 2 of the 4, without the PvP stats.

In fact, some of the Warlock PvP gear is better itemized than the justice point gear and the 458 PvP gear is better than some 463 heroic dungeon pieces due to it not having Crit. PvP gear can hold you over until you get your 476/489 gear in Vaults.

      Hi!
      I would like to ask somethng about ice lance and other procs aswell.
      To maximize dps, should you always try to get rid of Fingers of Frost procs with ice lances? And if you get flurry proc, do you want to get rid of ice lance procs before casting flurry + lance combo?
      I am not sure how much icicles and maximizing their damage output before dumping them affects your damage.
      Thank you

      Hello everyone.
       
      I've been playing hunter MM as my main for a while, but lately i've noticed that my DPS output might not be as high as it should. A couple of months ago, I tought it might be my ilvl or my mastery that was too low, but i've tried different builds and i still can't get closer to some other hunters I run into some ToS H pugs.
       
      I'm actually sitting at 938 iLvl. Don't have many BiS, but my stats are kinda high. My weapon relics are bad(low ilvl, i'm still stuck with 915 relics), and I still didn't get any other good legendary besides the Soul of the Huntmaster.
       
      So my question is: Am I doing something wrong or it's just my relics/trinkets that aren't very decent? I was happy when i get past the 1M dps mark, but now i'm stuck at that point, and I can't see to get past that.
       
      Here's my armory link: https://worldofwarcraft.com/pt-br/character/azralon/piccola
       
      Hopefully you guys can help me out on this. Thanks!

      Hey guys,
      I'm new to playing affliction lock and ranged DPS in general really. Can someone help me see why my DPS isn't where it should be? I've changed my stats around and have been playing with my legendaries and rotation but I can't seem to improve. If someone has some ideas it would be much appreciated.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, PUBG, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletags: 
      Stjern#2802 or Azkey#21565
