Absolutely Underperforming Ret Pally Seeking Guidance

5 posts in this topic

Hello friends!

 

I am new to the raiding game, and utilized the group finder to find a normal HM to run since my guild doesn't raid until later in the week.  I got in there with another Ret Pally that was 14 iLvls below me and was kind of embarrassed by him/her when they are in PvP gear.

 

So, I am here in hopes that I might get some specific advice for me on how I can get my DPS up to a more competative level so that I don't find myself at the bottom of the pile and dismissed from the party due to underperformance.

 

I'm looking for help on my rotation specifically, since I am still working on gearing up, though I am at 639 after getting one piece of loot from the group tonight.

 

Thank you in advance!

 

PS:  Here is a link that should get you to the logs from the raid and my armory (Please note that the most relevant logs are the ones from 12/30):

First of all read guide(dps rotation) here http://www.icy-veins.com/wow/retribution-paladin-pve-dps-rotation-cooldowns-abilities

 

1)Give us armory linc and worldoflogs/warcraftlogs - it is better, easier to read.

2)Enchant your gear - weapon,rings,neck,back.

3)You dont have t5 talant or its site bug. T1 talant Speed of Light and T4 - Unbreakable Spirit better for most raid situations.

4)You dont have glyph, or site do not show it to us.

5)You probably use wrong rotation. CS more often, exo less, Your prio CS>Judgement>Exo. Dont use Exo procs, they do nothing. Read guide for full rotation.

6)Do not use your heals often, it's dps loss, couse you waste global cd for heal.

7)Go to warcraftlogs and worldoflogs, look for other paladins logs. You find lot of intresting info - what talant they prefer, what skill or seal for each fight. For example - sometimes better use Light Hammer, not Execute sentence(Koragh fight).

8)Read guide, set some macros, interface and other stuff. http://www.icy-veins.com/wow/retribution-paladin-pve-dps-guide

I just wasn't sure whether it was worth enchanting gear before I got it significantly higher.  For some reason, my logs wouldn't register my raiding last night, so I did a quick dummy run this morning.  I only used a +100 Mastery food buff.  I know that dummy DPS will be lower than raid DPS, so I'm hoping that I'm not doing too terribly.

 

Otherwise, I did try to take the given information into account. I did tend to favor Exo when it woudl proc, but ignored it on this dummy fight unless it was needed to get quickly to 5 HP.

 

I believe this link should work for the dummy fight on Warcraft Logs:  https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/WcJ7XmTwjK3ADPCf/

Enchat always good idea. Enchant LFR/Normal gear with cheap ones, and if you will get heroic/myth - chant it with good ones, couse for heroic you need 20k dps, and for myth around 25-30k, and you want anything what will up your dps.

 

Dont forget about flask for 250 main stat(str for you, cost not much) and potions for 1k strenght(2-5gold per 1 potion). You coud use potion BEFORE fight starts(many ppl start count before pull), and another one 2 min later with your "wings". If you dont have money, you coud use your garrison garden to generate herbs what you need, and ask someone in your guild make potions for you.

 

Also i recomend you use glyph of double jeopardy and switch targets when you can as often as you can(ogrons,imperator,tectus and keep staks of your seal). And exorcism glyph, so you will cleave nearest targets for 25% of dmg, it will up your dps a bit. For butcher better switch exo for divine protection and absorb dmg with it.

So your glyph shoud be - TV, Exo, Jeopardy. If you fight butcher you coud switch exo and jeo for other glyphs.

 

About logs - looks better, u did more dps than you have in raid. Also your spell % per fight looks right.

I dont inderstand what you mean telling "quickly 5hp" - other spells(CS,judge,hammer of wrath) was on cd, so u cast exo? If yes - its totaly okay, you did right. If you cast it when one of this spells wasnt on cd - its not right.

 

PS: if u HAVE gold, you coud buy trinket http://www.wowhead.com/item=118882but it cost around 100k at my server. Use it with yoru wings+potions.

I just wanted to pop back in and say, "Thank you, Elarion!"  I ran an LFR earlier tonight and pushed out almost 19K DPS on Brackenspore without using any potions or flasks.  The only buffs I had were the typical party buffs and my +100 mastery food buff. I'm sure I could push that up to at least 20K with potoins and flasks.

 

I wish I had the gold for that trinket, but hopefully I'll come across something comparable just through typical play or find a better deal on my realm.  It was going for about 70K when I looked at the AH earlier.

 

Thank you again!

      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!

      Hi all,
      Im not sure where to post this but im hoping someone can help or at least point me in the right direction.
      TL;DR - My DPS is awful and i want to increase it
      I played fire & frost spec back in cata upto 85 and have recently got back into WoW again and finally realised what people talk about when they play "end game" i wish id known about raiding sooner!
      However, My DPS isnt great at all im eq 959 ilvl but my DPS comes out as low as 8-900 sometimes or i can hold a steady 1.1-1.2M. Simc comes out around 1.7M (obviously in a perfect world) but i still feel im doing something wrong.
      Ive watched videos, read forums and im sure my rotation is right. Im using Flask, Food and Runes and Pre-potting. I have some logs here of garothi.
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/XRqCaL6jFVpW9MnG#fight=5&type=summary&source=23&view=events
      and this is my Raider.io - https://raider.io/characters/eu/twisting-nether/Buksh
      Not sure if ive posted this in the right place OR if ive given enough info to help. but anything would be hugely appreciated.
