What is "good" dps at a certain gear lvl?

Just another lock struggling to keep up on the dps charts in Heroics right now and getting a little bit frustrated. Virtually every Dungeon and Target dummy I practice my rotation on I max at about 30k dps. Im not sure if this is decent at ilvl 446 or I need to work on my rotation (which is a pretty basic and common destro rotation).

armory: http://us.battle.net...ofdoom/advanced

rotation: CoE, immo, conflag,(dark soul) chaos, conflag, incin till ember up, conflag, chaos and so on. aoe is always situational.. Thanks in advance for any input.

your dps is fine with that ilvl.

HCs are rubbish for judging your DPS since you have a ramp-up time and most mobs are dead within seconds. Also, you are probably comparing yourself to people running the HCs with 470+ ilvl as a lot of people still do them for the valor points.

Thanks for the reply.

After looking over this site a bit more I found a slight flaw using chaos bolt after conflag. switched it up and got 32k on a dummy

This is a warlock forum, not a hunter one. And how much DPS you get on quest mobs is meaningless.

Very true. I only see 22-25 on quest mobs.

The main reason behind my post is that I used to top dps in groups all the time in the BC and WotLK days then took a very long break from the game, now I come back and I always suck in comparison. A 460 gear lvl monk tank in my guild slays me in dps. figured I was doing something horribly wrong but Locks just aren't up there in PVE anymore.

I wasn't commenting on your post. But locks definitely ARE up there in terms of PVE right now. They're one of the strongest PVE classes in the game. You mentioned dungeons, are you talking overall or bosses? DPS on dungeon trash is meaningless. Tanks often have high damage on trash

Tanks have a passive ability called 'Vengance' - basically means, the more/harder they get hit, the harder they hit back.

Dont let it scare you; on single target, tanks will go back down to a reasonable DPS.

446 gear isnt really anything special. From this point forward it won't talk a lot to be hitting 50-60dps though.

      The guild has been around since day one of classic. We have a relatively relaxed raid environment and solid leadership that encourages players to excel while still enjoying the game.
      Raiders must come prepared, on time, with flasks, pots, food, and runes. 
      Raiders must know their class and role. 
      Potential raiders must have been gearing for the content.
      Drama Queens and Trolls need not apply. 
      Our raid schedule is:
      Tuesday - Thursday
      8PM - 11PM CST
      We are looking for the following classes/specs, but will consider any good and dedicated players.
      Healers - Any Class
      DPS - Especially Mage, Monk, Rogue
      Tank - CLOSED

      Hey everyone,
      So, I think my problem is my gear as I have been trying to rack my brain on why my dps is not that great in raids. Some of it I admit is probably not sticking 100% to my rotation, but any help/suggestions would definitely be appreciated.
      You can find the analyzer for the most recent log here: https://wowanalyzer.com/report/4K3dCR86gfMv2Njt/2-LFR+Antoran+High+Command/Darkbriar
       
      Thanks in advance! 😎

      SERVER: Illidan
      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time.
      PROGRESSION: 2/11M
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING*
      Tank All DPS (Healer offspec preferred but not required) Possibly accepting other roles! ABOUT US
      Now recruiting for BFA!
      Currently looking for skilled and laid back Tank & DPS for the upcoming expansion.
      We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out. 
      Fun guild events are scheduled often!
      Overall, we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
      GOALS FOR BFA
      In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic. 
      This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.) 
      SCHEDULE UNTIL BFA**
      Fridays currently mandatory for core raiders for a partial Heroic clear.
      Sundays reserved for non-mandatory misc WoW activities (M+, leveling alts for BFA etc.) or other non-WoW related events.
      If ilvl is high enough, you can join for Friday (950+) and Sunday on any character, not just the one you want to play in BFA.
                *The class you play in BFA can be different from what you play now; we will be flexible until the expansion hits.
                **Schedule subject to changes.
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW
      Make sure to add me on Battle.net and/or fill out our short 6 question app to join us. We look forward to speaking with you!
      Start the app here!
