Demo lack of dps

10 posts in this topic

So I went demo, after a few attempts of dungeons I realized my damage was no very good so I once again decided to come here, after going over my logs myself, I noticed my dot uptimes were low, but I would like more tips, and thoughts of what you guys do to improve

So first thing's first: fuck you and the font you rode in on.

Looks to me like your biggest issue is really poor management of dot up times. Witherbark they're a little subpar, and your DPS is good. Xeri they're god awful, and your DPS shows. But I just gave them a quick skim from vaca.

I looked at the arch mage sol fight: Besides the mentioned dot uptimes, you have to work on your spell priority and HoG usage. The first 2 charges of HoG went pretty well, then you used 1 completely alone and forgot about HoG for about 30 seconds. then you used both charges immediately, effectively wasting HoG uptime and therefore fury gain.

You used shadowbolt 10 seconds before the fight ended. At this time the boss should definitely be under 25 %, so use soulfire.

You used AD with glyph on a very short fight, which means a huge loss of 10 seconds uptime on DS(40 sec vs 30 sec). The fight length wouldn´t have allowed more than 3 times the demonbolt foursome, but I hugely doubt you could afford a third time fury-wise, so 2 usages of DS is all you need.

You could have used wrath storm directly at the beginning for a possible third use. 

After all you lacked either the mastery or haste buff. Besides buff food, flasks and pots, this should also buff your dps. I have to mention that my remarks depend hugely on the fact that you somehow know the kill time will be short, but for the 4th boss in an instance, you had some time to evaluate the dps of your fellow dungeon mates.

I am curious why to use Soulfire below 25% Health?

I'm still learning the ropes to Demo myself but you have a passive that grants you a stack of molten core any time you Soulfire someone who is below 25% hp, therefore making it free in a sense

Because below 25% health you always get a Soulfire with Molten Core buff, i.e. reduced cast time(lower than shadow bolt) and mana cost.

 

Edit: As KKillroyV2 already mentioned, demo got a passive for that ;)

      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)

      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
