Lock Problems Abound

4 posts in this topic

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.

      Who are we?
      Volatile are a group of mostly ex-mythic raiders, looking to get back into mythic raiding. We cleared through Nighthold heroic a number of months ago and need some more people in order to jump into mythic. Besides raiding our friendly bunch of members enjoy running mythic+ on daily basis, helping out with world quests among other things. Our discord is usually filled with members for daily banter and weekly fun. If you enjoy all that, you most certainly will enjoy your stay in Volatile.
      Who are we looking for?
      We're primarily looking for ranged DPS to fill out the roster. At this time we are full on tanks and healers.
      Tanks - Closed
      Healers - Closed
      Ranged DPS - MM Hunter, Warlock and Shadow Priest but all classes will be considered
      Melee DPS - Closed
      Overall we're looking for people with a good knowledge of their class/spec who know how to improve their gameplay. Being fairly thick skinned and being able to accept constructive criticism, as well as the occasional jab from some of our more 'outspoken' members, is a big plus too.
      When do we raid?
      We raid two times a week as standard, we often have an additional raid day if necessary. See raid times below. 
      Thursday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Monday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Tuesday: 8pm - 11pm (Additional day)
      Application process:
      We believe the best way to get to know if someone is right for the guild is just to have a chat, rather than go through a long application process. So we'll have a chat, look at logs and possibly run some M+ to get to know each other. If you're interested in joining our mythic raid team, contact any of the following:
      Contact us:
      GM: 
      Xadel#2609, Xadel (ingame)
      Council: 
      Òops#2597, Drainphase (ingame)
      Passive#2900, Malenky (ingame)
      Ohajay#2606, Draconem (ingame)
      Hjp#21650, Phynn (ingame)

      Just a quick question about the affliction guide. Why does it say to specifically sacrifice the felhunter? I haven't seen anywhere on why to sacrifice a certain minion. I haven't noticed anything different with the buff you get from it.

      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, Dota, 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: Vims#21684 Azkey#21565
