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

Recommended Posts

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

i have SUR Hunter and only get about 17-22 on questing trash. i can get it to spike real easy and get a bunch more but mainly 17-22k am i all jacked up?

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.

      Guild: Dawn of the Dead | http://www.dotd.org   Faction: Horde | Server: Zul'jin (PvE) | Timezone: EST   Current Progression: 8/9M BoD | 2/2H CoS | 8/8M Uldir CE   We've been raiding max size raids continuously since WoW has been released and are the only guild to have done so here on Zul'jin. We have strong leadership, no drama, and plans to keep raiding for years to come. Unlike many guilds, we're not recruiting for the short term, and we don't over-recruit.   Website: www.dotd.org
        Raid Times: Our schedule is 8-11 EST Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.   Needs: We are a small guild, and we expect high attendance. As such, we recruit people to raid, and desire people who can step in and contribute immediately. We don’t recruit people to sit around, so all spots are for raiders who can expect to be in most every raid.   We are currently looking to add skilled and reliable:
      Ranged DPS: High: Shadow Priest, Mage Medium: Warlock 1 Healer:
      High: Resto Shaman, Mistweaver Monk
       
      *ALL exceptional applicants will be considered regardless of the class.   What we ask of you:   Effort: Not all applicants come from highly progressed guilds, and that’s okay, but it does mean that you need to be prepared. We recruit the player, not the gear, but we do ask that you have some current experience. You need to have the best gear available to you with top end enchants and gems where available. You also need to be able to display an understanding of your class mechanics, role in a raid, and ability to learn new fights.   Attitude: It’s a game. We play for fun. How you fit in with the guild is taken very seriously. We’re a bunch of mostly 18-30 guys and girls who have fun playing together. While we have a good time, we also know when it’s time to buckle down and work hard.   Skill: The best way to determine skill is to see you in a raid. Because we don’t wish to have anyone transfer that we’re not serious about, be able to express your knowledge of your class and why you’re an exceptional player who would be an asset and is worth a shot. Gear will come with time. Skill will not. Impress us with your knowledge of your class and gameplay mechanics. Feel free to share any logs, theorycrafting, or other work you've done.   Commitment: We make a commitment to you, and ask you to do the same to us. A raid takes a team of more than 20 individuals working together. We rely on you to show up to raids, research your class and new fights, respect your fellow players, and notify us when you are unavailable. You rely on us for gear, experience, and coordination. It's a large investment of our time to train and gear new players, and we ask the same investment on your part so that we can each benefit.   We have a variety of informational resources available to prospective applicants on our web site: http://www.dotd.org-- please refer to our "Applications" forum for detailed information. Also feel free to visit us on WoWProgresss for more information and kill videos! http://www.wowprogress.com/guild/us/...wn+of+the+Dead   Should you wish to speak to someone in-game, please don't hesitate to reach out to an officer directly, whisper Alloren (Alloren#1606), Xanah (Xana#1662) or Jeare (Jeare#1759).   We look forward to hearing from you soon!
