Hello all, love the website:)

I'm trying to see if I'm missing anything huge when it comes in terms of damage. On fights like Feng or Spirit-binder I'm expecting usually to finish in the top 5 of DPS compared to the rest of my guild. I'm usually in the top ten but I'm always trying to improve so if you can notice anything flawed with my rotation (Which I got from Icy Veins & Noxxic) or whatnot please let me know, I welcome the criticism.

Here's a report from World of Logs on our Last night MSV run (25m Normal).

http://www.worldoflo...3nt/details/27/

I looked at Simcraft and tried to compare what percentage of what spell did the most damage.

I've noticed that my Frost Bomb and FFB show doing more damage in my world of logs, then the Simcraft T14 PW style does.So Pulling Feng as an exampleCountdown happens by MT.

Pre InvocationPoM + Frost bomb the bossMove to CenterStart Frost-bolting the boss to stack 3 DebuffsCast Frozen OrbBy this time I have the Brain Freeze Proc, and Two Fingers of FrostCast Icy Veins + Trinket (Glyphed) and Mirror Images then Alter TimeStart unloading on boss making sure I'm using up all the FoF procs and after using Brain Freeze, reapplying Frost Bomb.

After Alter Time, Mirror Images and Icy Veins wear off, Use Invocation when it wears off, I keep steady with my Frost Bolts, Applying Frost Bomb when available for Brain Freeze, and using Pet Freeze and Frozen Orb to keep supplied with FoF.

Hopefully the information I provided was helpful enough for someone to evaluate.

Hello there, sorry for the slight delay.

I've found a log similar to yours, just that the guy does a lot more DPS and that he is not using inv_glyph_majormage.jpgGlyph of Icy Veins: http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/rhagkw30mpw1iyos/details/56/?s=2030&e=2491

By comparing both logs, I've found two interesting things.

First, I think you're casting spell_frost_frostblast.jpgIce Lance way too often. From your log, ability_mage_wintersgrasp.jpgFingers of Frost procced 44 times, yet you cast Ice Lance almost 90 times. In the other log, there are 53 procs of Fingers of Frost and 54 casts of Ice Lance.

Second, you are not casting spell_mage_frostbomb.jpgFrost Bomb often enough. In 7min36, you cast it 32 times, the other guys 41 (in 7min41). You're not only losing damage, but Frost Bomb is the only thing that procs ability_mage_brainfreeze.jpgBrain Freeze. As you can see in your log, you got a lot less procs than the other guy, so a lot less changes to use ability_mage_frostfirebolt.jpgFrostfire Bolt.

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Evening fellow spell chuckers!
      - Logs (Entire HC Farm Raid)
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/RPZK8MngjtWTAzry#boss=-2&difficulty=0&type=damage-done&source=2
      - Armoury Link
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/argent-dawn/arcere
      - Rotation
      Icy Veins recommended (Glacial Spike). Talents as seen in Armoury.
      - Issue
      Disparity between fights, parsing blue on some and green on others and general underperformance DPS-wise.
      Not very talented with Logs Analysis I will be honest, but I have oftentimes fewer casts which could be attributed to moving too much/panicking during mechanics and sometimes the spells appear to not hit as hard by average.
      Some suspect some fights hold my lower than normal FPS as a partial contributor to my low DPS, but I am certain it's purely a rotational/skill combination error on my part, or not utilizing my tools as I should.
      I run Shard of Exodar and Sephuz as it is the best combination according to SimCraft and I have optimized the gear with what I have using the same tool.
      Shattercapped (by far, a little too far) and Haste approx 35%.
       
      Please send help, as I am breaking my brain with what I am doing wrong! 
       
      Thank you in advance!

      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
