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!

      Ok so let me start out by saying my weapon is lvl 885(fire artifact) and has the following relics equipped: 

      Fires of Heaven 855 +10% Pyro (Fire)
      Raven's sight 865 +20% FS (Arcane)
      Fires of Heaven 845 +10% Pyro (Fire)
      (I know it doesnt add 10% each)

      i have in my bag i have:

      Seawitch's Foci 840 +12% Ignite (Arcane)
      Sizziling Fang 875 +12% Ignite (Fire)
      Soulforge Ember 835+12% Ignite (Fire)
      Molten Giant's Eye 860+3% Fire crit (Fire)
      Fires of Heaven 840 +10% Pyro (Fire)

      Ok last time i took out an Ignite relic i lost 40-50k dps. I put in the 855 Fires of Heaven relic and just did not stack up even though it was a 10ilvl increase. So my question is should i go tripple Ignite? or maybe double ignite with the crit relic too. I care a lot more about mythic + dps more than raid so keep that in mind. it doesnt seem like the pyro one is very good compared to ignite. Also if anyone can offer an explanation as to why i lost so much dps by switching in the supposedly best relic (pyro) that would be great. My best guess is that i was on some kind of soft cap with mastery and that it did a lot more dps but idk

      I think the best two options are running three ignite for insane cleave damage in mythic plus or, Sizziling Flame, Molten Giant, and Seawitch.

      We are a former hardcore guild who finally grew up! Want to still progression raid but don’t have 3 nights a week to devote to WoW? We might be the guild for you! The raiding core is ex TBC/WOTLK raiders who just don’t have the time to raid during the week any more due to real life.
      We raid at the weekend, though people are still on during the week doing arena/mythic + etc!  
      We are currently looking to move into Mythic raiding and are looking to expand the raid team with players with similar goals and time schedules as ourselves.

      At the moment we're in need of Paladin healers as well as all DPS classes. Higher item level is of course better but anything above 860 to start out is fine. Old school raiders preferred, but not required!

      17 traits
      Logs: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/character/21010315/10/#metric=bossdps

      My DPS is really comically low. These logs are old and I hadn't read the compendium at the time, but even after doing that I can't stay above like 160k on target dummies. Simcraft is telling me I should be pushing close to 300k, and the people in the Warrior discord tell me that I should be able to get pretty close to those numbers.

      So can someone just come meet me in Skyhold and help me out or something? I've read about the rotation, and had people tell me it, but I just need someone to like see what I'm doing wrong or something.

      I'm Boogal on Emerald Dream US, horde side. Send me a whisper or reply here I guess.
