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 https://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. https://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!

      SERVER: Illidan
      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time (CT)
      CURRENT PROGRESSION: 8/8N, 7/8H
      iLVL REQUIREMENT: 355 - 360+
       
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING
      Tank Healer DPS ABOUT US
      Currently looking for skilled and laid back raiders for Heroic and eventually Mythic Uldir.
      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.
      Players wanting just Mythic+ and a casual experience (no raiding) are welcomed!
      Fun guild events are scheduled every Saturday!
      TLDR; 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.) 
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW
      - Mythic+ or Casual: Add me on Battle.net or whisper me in-game for an invite.
      - Raiders: Add me on Battle.net and fill out our app.
      Start the app here!

      Guild: Dawn of the Dead | http://www.dotd.org   Faction: Horde | Server: Zul'jin (PvE) | Timezone: EST   Current Progression: 4/8M Uldir   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: Warlock
      Medium: Mage, S.Priest, Boomkin
      1 Healer:
      High: MW 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 and be a minimum iLvl of 370. You need to have the best gear available to you, (BoE, Crafted) with gems and top end enchants. 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 Xanah (Xana#1662) or Jeare (Jeare#1759).   We look forward to hearing from you soon!

      Looking for a casually serious progression guild? Hordeland Security could be your new home! We started at launch, and have raided on Blackhand, Baelgun, and now Turalyon. 

      We currently raid on Tuesdays and Thursdays 7:00- 9:15 Central Time. We understand that no one has an unlimited amount of time to play. We raid with a goal oriented focus, to achieve AotC in current content and then progress into Mythic. We also have a few that pvp, a few more that push M+'s, and we've been known do a few mog/achievement runs.
      Interested? Drop us a line!

      So uhm, first post here and i take the opportunity to take you guys through my fabulous journey into "breaking" the tavern brawl this morning.
       
      So i get on that six-shooter tavern brawl with a mage decklist ( just cause i need them gold from quest ya know :D ) and on my second or third game,
       
      I play Research Project my opponent had then 10 cards in hand and draws for the turn, but no deck refill.... He then plays Barnes, no minion comes up from the battlecry. so it aint a visual bug. start my turn, play another Research Project, my opponent fatigues for 1+2, i can then OTK him with my 0 costs spells due to my 4 copies of Sorcerer's Apprentice.
      Fun fact, the tavern brawl clearly says; Make a six-card deck and duel! Don't worry - when you're out of cards you get a free reload!.
      Can anyone recall to this happening to them or no one had the cojones to mill?
