Quick question on warrior dps

7 posts in this topic

Hey guys great website, this is my first expansion playing warrior dps and i have the best gear available to me to start raiding. I have pugged Vaults multiple times never getting past the first boss although i think that was mainly because of tank issues. That being said when i go to world of logs to see how other warriors are doing on that fight it shows some are doing 130k dps in arms and fury. How the hell is this possible when i'm lucky if i can pull 50-60?

I cant look at your character right now due to the fact of myself being at school (Anything with gaming is blocked, just dont ask how this isnt blocked for me because most likely it stupid like that). But I will try to explain what I can for why those warrior's are doing ungodly numbers. They are most likely people who look into the classes and do math on the spec aka 1 str is so much dps in decimals. They do this for fun also from what I have heard but right now 50-60k is what your suppous to be doing for your spec. If you have gemmed right and look on site and use sites such as EJ, Askmrrobot, Icy-veins, noxxic you should be able to pull the numbers you need. Also take for granted that you might be missing a buff or 2 in 10 man raids unlike 25 man where most likely you have all the bells and whisles. I will look into your character as best as I can once I get back to my home compuer but I would suggest going to the sites I recomended above. Cheers!

Thanks for your response i've itemized my gear accordingly to icy-veins and other sites as far as crit being superior to strength. The fights on world of logs i was looking at i believe are 10 man.I don't know if that sited is bugged on numbers or what but for having gear similar to theirs i don't see how they could be pulling that much. Always trying to improve my numbers needless to say if i was doing that much damage i would be extatic.

If you look at the armory of the number 1 ranked fury warrior for stoneguard 10m normal ( you will realize that he has never killed Stoneguard in normal mode. Additionally the headline of worldoflogs states that there are issues with difficulty detection and since there is a mechanic in heroic that increases your damage im pretty sure that most of those 100k+ logs are from heroic mode.

50-60 seems fine

Scrounger nailed it. Also, I'm sorry for the lack of response, somehow your post got lost to me :)

      Hello y'all, 
      So I'll cut right to the chase. I feel like I'm under performing. Or I could be doing just fine with my current gear/stats (SimCraft may have given me unrealistic expectations).
      I have decent stats, draught and convergence, and my 4 piece. These are all on the lower side, so I think that would be one way to improve my DPS, but that's not what I'm here for. I ran a Sim today and it states that under ideal conditions and a perfect run, I should be doing around 900k, with an initial burst of 1.7k, and a couple peaks around a mil. I don't see these numbers, especially the peaks of 1 mil, while I run though, which leads me to my original point of me thinking I'm doing something wrong. Heroic Krosus Heroic Guldan
      One thing someone will probably point out is that I wasn't using pre-pots on either of those. That'll change in the future. 
      My rotation is based off of the Fury Discord guide.
      Opener - Charge/BT/BC/Rampage/Drought/RB
      I'll usually then BT or Rampage based on rage, OF, and then go into a priority system of Enraged RB > BT > FS > RB
      Rampage at 100 rage.
      At execute phase, my execute rotation is:
      Execute/FS/BT in that order to keep myself at 100 rage for Frothing. While this is what the Fury Discord states, I tend to not get a ton of Execute damage on the boss and feel this is one area I could be doing something wrong.
      On add fights, I know that I don't incorporate Whirlwind enough into my rotation, and that's something I need to be a bit mindful of. But after I burst, I tend to drop down at a steady rate. I don't usually see my DPS jump back up unless I Drought (which makes sense), but when I'm doing my standard rotation I can't keep my numbers up. Krosus should be a straight forward fight, but if you look at the logs, my dps drops to around 500k. Am I screwing something up? Or am I pulling comparable DPS to a fury warrior with 897 ilvl. 
      Thank you all for any help you can provide to me. I greatly appreciate it. I just want to bring honor and glory to all of my warrior brethren out there.

      Some backstory - I started as a protection warrior so I could pull a load of mobs and AoE them into a puddle over time without being liquefied myself.
      I went like this from 1-100 without a hitch. Switched to Arms because of my fascination with Blademasters and Blackhand and I was promptly curb-stomped into oblivion.

      From what I've experienced, Arms has incredibly bursty unpredictable damage which can either annihilate a target or grant you no procs whatsoever making for long gaps in the fight during which you will do negligible damage.

      The only self-healing abilities you have are:
      Second Wind - Restores 6% of your maximum health ever 1 second after 5 seconds without taking damage.
      Victory Rush - Heals you for 30% of your maximum health, only useable after killing an enemy.
      Touch of Zakajz - 3%-6%-9% of mortal strike's damage is returned to you as health.

      If during a fight a monster starts out DPSing you, the fight is already over and you are graced with the choice of fleeing or dying because your defensive cooldowns aren't the best thing in the world.
      This becomes very evident when attempting to solo rares or even packs of mobs larger than three at 110.

      There are two builds for Arms circling the web.
      In short these are their gimmicks.
      Focused Rage
      -Excellent burst damage
      -Great for sniping stragglers in PvP
      -Very clunky use of Focused Rage
      -Only shines in Colossus Smash windows
      -Very Poor AoE, cooldown based
      Mortal Combo
      -More rage to use without FR
      -Consistent damage
      -Some freedom with talents
      -Stale rotation (You don't build towards something)
      -Sub-par AoE
      -Poor burst damage

      I had an astonishingly hard time as an Arms warrior, even fighting two enemies at a time I would come very close to dying.
      My damage was GREAT but only during the windows provided by battle cry/avatar combo.
      My survivability sucked, my damage sucked, my AoE sucked, and I ended going back to Protection to progress.

      I REALLY want to like Arms, but it just falls on its face every time I try to use it.

      I call to you Arms warriors, you brave few - what is the trick to the specialization?
      What is the purpose / focus of the spec?

      I recently acquired Kil'jaeden's Burning Wish. I already have an ilvl 890 Convergence of Fates and ilvl 880 Draught of Souls. My guild has currently cleared Heroic Nighthold through High Botanist and is about to begin work on Elisande and Gul'dan. Should I swap in KBW for one of the two trinkets I already have, or stick with Convergence + Draught?  My only other real DPS throughput legendary is Kazzalax, Fujieda's Fury. For my second legendary, I tend to swap between Naj'entus's Vertebrae and situational use ones like the crafted belt or Mannoroth's Bloodletting Manacles. Any thoughts or comments are welcome. Thanks.
