DPS Help // Dispatch

6 posts in this topic

Hey everyone; I've been raiding with my guild and learned about warcraft logs yesterday; so I tried it out and recorded my fight against Ko'ragh to compare against better assassination rogues, to figure out how to improve. Upon doing so; I noticed a lot of the "better" players spam dispatch EARLY ON in the fight... am I missing something? How do you do that?

 

Here's a link for one Ko'ragh fight in which they do it: Link

 

From 00:00:23.500 to 00:00:27.516 he gets 5 dispatches off without any other spellcasts inbetween. Learning how to do this would likely increase my DPS by at least 1-2k. Is there a talent I'm missing somewhere?

 

Also from 00:01:49.042 to 00:01:59.751 he does it again.

 

You can tell at 00:02:43.136 he's finally under 35% and using it "correctly" since it's all he spams for combo points. But those prior "bursts" of Dispatch...?

 

Thanks a lot.

I have absolutely no idea. I can't think of any reason why this would be the case, unless it has something to do with counting his shield as his HP and so is letting him cast Dispatch at under 35% shield. 

 

I'll send the log to some other friends and see if they have any idea

Yes, turns out that's exactly what it is, although it's intended. I never noticed since I don't play Assassination... Maybe I should though, for that fight. I'm going to have to test it...

 

I'll add it to the mechanics post

Thank you kindly.

 

I don't look at my icons during the fight so I never noticed. I think I'll add a huge 1 x 1 ability bar with Dispatch on it or something lol.

I was thinking the exact same thing, haha!  Normally that's a Sub fight for me, but man, free dispatches... sounds like it's worth a shot.  Good find all!

It's certainly worth it most of the time. There's a significant improvement with Assassination for this fight (and only this fight) if your group has low DPS and he stays with a small shield for a long time

 

I have a feeling that it won't matter soon though; as groups get more gear and can push through the shield faster, the advantage that Assassination has will drop off very quickly

      Hi everyone, I'm wondering if you could help me to improve my dps as a fury warrior, I've been using an addon to help me with my rotation  (link is below) though I don't think it's doing me any good now.
      https://wago.io/E1uzBOfaz (rotation helper link)
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/draenor/calux (this is me link :D)
      Any help would be greatly appreciated but please keep the replies helpful, not looking for people who want to reply telling me how bad I am as I already know I'm bad and that's why I'm asking on here xD
      If you need anything else from me then please ask, I really need to start getting that dps up xD
      Thank you for reading this and I hope you have a nice day.

      Hello. I'm from Russia, so my English isn't very good, but I need help.

      My priority skills: rampage > BT > RB > FS
      So rotation like this: BC - BloodBath - ramp - odyn's fury - BT - RB - ramp - BT - RB - RB - fs .... BC - ramp - etc
      also I user free excute procs ofcourse.
       
      Simcraft show me that my best DPS must be near 1 860 000. But in fact my dps near 1.4M (maximum). 
      As you can see "good player" do much better dps then I with same iLvL.
       
      What I doning wrong?

      Hi everyone,
      I, like many others, are trying to maximize DPS for their respective classes, mine in particular being ret paladin.
      In general, it seems like there are several sources of information for dps for each class.
      Icy Veins Mr Robot Raidbots (Simulation Craft) Warcraft Logs Each with its own set of criteria as to what determines high dps. And I find inconsistency when bouncing between the different sources. I want to understand what am I missing when it comes to each. I will lay out what I currently understand, and would like some feedback as to what I may not be considering in each as well as some advice as to what other options I could be exploring (resources) to further the insight into whats applicable for my current state.
      Icy Veins
      For Icy Veins, in particular, the stat weights, are mostly vaguely determined. From the ret guide:
       
      If I am reading this right, its Mastery >= Haste > Ver >= Crit = Str
      Mr Robot
      I use the addOn and I subscribe for the Best In Bags function. When I plug in my information in, the site recommends that I go with my 2pce t20 and balance around my legendaries with a focus on haste pieces (haste gems are emphasized).
      https://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/simulator/report/a42136294c7f40b2b7ee78023306d786
      Stat weights as listed in MrRobot:
      MrRobot Stat Weights
      From what I am seeing, Crit is most emphasized, and the one crit gem + ring crit enchants were originally recommended by MrRobot here. Also another notable thing here is haste being way behind crit's potential.
      RaidBots (Simc)
      For RaidBots, I use the addOn, and play around with various items I hoard, and use the stat weights functions. Generally the feedback I get here are to stick with the current gem setup and with regards to stat weights, emphasize at my current setup with crit. It also says I should drop some of my high ilvl pieces (935 head, and 960 chest) for 4pce (915 head, lfr 890 chest)
      Gear simc:
      https://www.raidbots.com/simbot/report/d3Qbkf6nqpoP4bxQ9YB2m
      Stat Weights:
      https://www.raidbots.com/simbot/report/6NkVYwEaTW26FxD4wBwey4
      Vers -> crit -> mastery -> haste -> str
      (versitality first?)
      Warcraft Logs
      I mostly use Warcraft Logs to check what the top dps players (ret pallys) are hitting and what setups are they running. I don't want to specifically link player armories in here, but upon some investigation, you'll find most are just stacking haste
      ---
      I understand stat weights are relative, however it seems like everyone has different priorities, one says mastery, another vers, another crit, another haste?
      Help me understand.
      Thanks,
      Exploit

      I feel like I should be performing better as a frost mage at my specific level. If some of you don't mind taking a look at my logs and letting me know what I could do to improve, it would help me out a lot. 
      A lot of people have told me once i get bracers and shard that my dps will normalize for my ilvl. Is this true? I follow the standard for frost mage st rotation: dont eat Ice-lance procs, don't waste insta flurries, spend flurries by frostbolt>flurry>Ice-lance, etc. If I am missing something, please let me know. 
      Here are some logs to look at.
