This are my Warcraft logs on Heroic The Butcher https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/JDMZtQfm8WFwvC64

 

 

this is my armory http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/sargeras/Tearjerkr/simple

 

 

As for my rotation i start of with Crusader strike, judgement , and exorcism i repeat on till i get enough for my Final verdict in which then i use CS , Judgement to be able to use Divide storm. then I repeat the same rotation..

 

I tend to pop all my CDs at start of the fight which are Avenging wrath , execution sentences , Holy avenger and Draenic str potion But when i do that my rotation changes to Hammer of wrath , final verdict , CS , Divide storm , hammer of wrath , Final verdict and repeat on till my CDs are done..

 

i max about 30k with my CDs then drop all the way down to 16k which gets me frustrated. Am following the ICYvein single boss rotation but i can't seem to get up there without doing burst dmg. i was in a pug raid with 2 other ret pallies under gear and with my same rotation and they were pulling much more than me.

 

Please can someone explain to me what am i doing wrong. Is it my gear? or just that am doing something wrong.

Remember, our "rotation" isn't a strict step-by-step guide; it's a loose list of situational priorities. You really shouldn't be weaving DS on ST unless you have both the EDS proc and the buff from FV, and nothing else of higher priority available. You don't want to waste the EDS proc, though, but it's not of significant priority until it's within the last ~4s. You're also severely neglecting HoW - 18 casts over ~5mins (looking at Butcher from log you linked) is ridiculously low, even for not using SW.

 

Recommend getting the CLCRet addon to help with your rotation, since that's your major problem right now.

Thank you am trying the CLCret addon but having problems finding a rotation. Some guides are out of date and can't seem to find a decent string.

I use:

es eds5_fv tv_dp_4s eds_4s tv5 how eds_fv_aw_exec tv_aw_exec cs eds_fv j tv_dp tv4 exo tv3

The difference with the one posted is:

  1. exo_bc removed. It's based on T17 4P set bonus which I don't have.
  2. Using empowered DS with FV during execute range added (eds_fv_aw_exec instead of eds_fv_aw). When the target is under 35% you won't starve on holy power anyway because of HoW. 
  3. Mine favours empowered DS with FV buff above judgement. 

 

Remember that empowered DS with FV buff is your highest possible damage output even on a single target. That's why I made choice 2 and 3.

Try checking my rotation, previous post.

What I see from your combat log is you're casting exorcism too many times (it's second lowest prio spell, last is FV with 3HP). And you're also casting quite some divine storms when not empowered or buffed by FV.

 

My log (not perfect also btw):

 I tried your rotation and i stayed at 20k steady at the training dummy. And yeah i did use DS a lot without both buffs din't know it would be sooooo much of a dmg boost.  Thank you all.     Now would this clcline work as aoe also?? or is there some tweaking that i must do to get some aoe on mutli targets.

20k sounds decent considering you have no buffs.

 

There are not many AoE fights in Highmaul. You could say Tectus is, but even there it's a lot more important to burst 1 add down instead of going mad on AoE to get high on meters. Don't let dmg meters fool you :)

 

There are some cleave fights with 2 mobs though (I consider AoE more than 4 mobs). For those the default rotation with the DP+FV talents are fine imo.

 

For single target fights, like butcher, I'm going Sanctified Wrath instead of Divine Purpose.

ok silly question here.

before i copied the Clret Code from above.
I was doing about 16-18k on Imperator HC.

 

due to my deeps be low i got kicked form guild run.

logged on here got the clret infomation and went to SW to try kill a Raid dummy.

loosly following the prompts i was doing roughly 30-40k dps.

 

would this be a close enough representation on what kind of dps i might expect ?

or should i not use those Raid dummies in stormwind to test dps out.

Raid dummies are notoriously buggy and inaccurate for DPS purposes, especially since they can't simulate execute phases in this game. Try to PuG a normal run and get logs.

Here is my Log from last night

https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/TVjbZvF7r41DMWwn/#fight=1

and here is my current Armory

http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/ravencrest/Maerick/advanced

 

If you can have a look at them and see where i could be going wrong would be great :)
i am using the clcret string posted earlier in the thread which seems to have helped a bit.
but as usuall i am sure i am missing something small :)

Mrrobot has given me some enchant changes so i have bought those and will add them tonight / sometime on the weekend.

What enchants did AMR recommend you?

 

Are you using DP/FV for every fight? Not saying that's necessarily bad, but changing up your talents to optimize per-fight can have a strong impact on your overall performance. Play what you're most comfortable, though, as playing something you're not proficient with will hinder more than help regardless of being optimal.

Morning.

 

AMR recomended haste enchants.

I then got some more gear and this morning AMR is asking me to go back to Mastery.

 

Currently I am using DP/FV for majority of the fights.

but I am more than likley going to be trying t find the best talent for each fight that i can.

 

The only thing i wont be doing is seal dancing anytime soon. i am not up for that type of game play.

Don't use haste enchants. When the Sacred Duty buff was added into SimCraft for Prot, it was accidentally applied to all Paladins, so sims were showing really skewed and inaccurate values for haste. It re-recommending haste at this point simply could be the fact that they've recently corrected that (I know the most recent version of SimC did fix it, but I don't know exactly what AMR uses for their calculations).

 

From what I've read from other Rets, and my own experiences, Butcher's the only one where anything but FV makes sense. It's a strict single-target fight - no adds, high boss uptime - and that one I typically switch to Sera; otherwise, SW/FV for strong sustained and cleave is what I, personally, run. DP/FV is a popular setup for Tectus - and Kargath, if on crowd duty - though there are some recommendations of HA/FV there, too, for reliably strong AoE burst once he starts to crumble.

Just out of curiosity is there a way to put Sera on the clcret Line? i being using Holy avenger and final verdict together for the burst dmg , But i start dropping in dps and end up at 20k or 22k dps??

CLCRet doesn't support Seraphim currently.

 

The purpose of burst damage is you do a lot at start and drop later :P

I usually use SW for burst fights with prepotting and scabbard of kyanos trinket (mythic butcher etc..) instead of HA. Try simming to see what fits you best.

 

On normal fights I recommened you use Divine Purpose with Final Verdict, you should do quite some DPS with your gear if you follow the exact CLCret with the prio list I listed above (even though you have the minor enchants and gems).

      Hi everyone,
      I, like many others, are trying to maximize DPS for their respective classes, mine in particular being ret paladin.
      In general, it seems like there are several sources of information for dps for each class.
      Icy Veins Mr Robot Raidbots (Simulation Craft) Warcraft Logs Each with its own set of criteria as to what determines high dps. And I find inconsistency when bouncing between the different sources. I want to understand what am I missing when it comes to each. I will lay out what I currently understand, and would like some feedback as to what I may not be considering in each as well as some advice as to what other options I could be exploring (resources) to further the insight into whats applicable for my current state.
      Icy Veins
      For Icy Veins, in particular, the stat weights, are mostly vaguely determined. From the ret guide:
       
      If I am reading this right, its Mastery >= Haste > Ver >= Crit = Str
      Mr Robot
      I use the addOn and I subscribe for the Best In Bags function. When I plug in my information in, the site recommends that I go with my 2pce t20 and balance around my legendaries with a focus on haste pieces (haste gems are emphasized).
      https://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/simulator/report/a42136294c7f40b2b7ee78023306d786
      Stat weights as listed in MrRobot:
      MrRobot Stat Weights
      From what I am seeing, Crit is most emphasized, and the one crit gem + ring crit enchants were originally recommended by MrRobot here. Also another notable thing here is haste being way behind crit's potential.
      RaidBots (Simc)
      For RaidBots, I use the addOn, and play around with various items I hoard, and use the stat weights functions. Generally the feedback I get here are to stick with the current gem setup and with regards to stat weights, emphasize at my current setup with crit. It also says I should drop some of my high ilvl pieces (935 head, and 960 chest) for 4pce (915 head, lfr 890 chest)
      Gear simc:
      https://www.raidbots.com/simbot/report/d3Qbkf6nqpoP4bxQ9YB2m
      Stat Weights:
      https://www.raidbots.com/simbot/report/6NkVYwEaTW26FxD4wBwey4
      Vers -> crit -> mastery -> haste -> str
      (versitality first?)
      Warcraft Logs
      I mostly use Warcraft Logs to check what the top dps players (ret pallys) are hitting and what setups are they running. I don't want to specifically link player armories in here, but upon some investigation, you'll find most are just stacking haste
      ---
      I understand stat weights are relative, however it seems like everyone has different priorities, one says mastery, another vers, another crit, another haste?
      Help me understand.
      Thanks,
      Exploit

      When I started playing again after several years off, I chose the wrong weapon/artifact chain for my Ret Paladin.  I choose Truthguard instead of Ashbringer.  So I am at 105 with Truthguard now and I was told by Bliz several levels ago that I could swap weapons at some point although I was not told how or when. I don't use Truthguard in play now just a normal weapon and seem to do ok. What must I do?
      From Blizzard -  "I understand you are contacting us about your starting artifact weapon! I know it would be frustrating wanting to use Retribution and the Ashbringer and getting the Truth Guard by mistake. I made this same mistake on my Shaman. I was anxious to get the Doom Hammer and didn’t realize I was required to use the Enhancement spec. I do have some information to share with you.
      The bad news is, once an artifact is selected, there’s no changing that. Luckily, you’re not stuck with this forever. You’ll need to go through some of the story line with the Truth Guard, but once you hit level 102, you’ll be presented with the option to pick up the other 2 artifact weapons. From there you will be able to use any one you’d like. ^_^"

      Can anyone provide a sim sheet, so I can see the DPS differences between legendaries in combination, like:
      Waist and Back = ??? DPS
      Shoulders and Back = ??? DPS
      Shoulders and Waist = ??? DPS
      Reason is, I have Shoulders and Back, but I'm curious to see what a Back and Waist combo DPS would be in comparison. Wanting to know if the numbers are small or large.

      Howdy howdy!
       
      Requisite armory link: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/aggramar/Mayo/simple Requisite most recent parse: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/character/93755/latest Am I following the Icy Veins rotation? Yup, for the most part, unless I have a brain fart. With that out of the way, I want to start by saying that I’m not unsatisfied by my DPS, but I know that I can do more / do better. 
      I’ve got two of the best legendaries (Ashes to Dust & Chain of Thrayn), two of what I think are the best trinkets. I’ve got the Claw of the Crystalline Scorpid (880) and the Entwined Elemental Foci (890) but don’t use them currently because my sims are showing Convergence of Fates (895) & Might of Krosus (895) being ~7-10k higher, but I’m very open to hearing if maybe the sims aren’t as accurate as I’d like to think they are.
      I’m just... stuck on how to get there. I was hoping that I could get some sage advice from other paladins in here.
      All of your thoughts are most appreciated.
      Thanks,
      Mayo

      Hi, I'm kinda new to using simcraft and pawn to help with itemization so hopefully you guys can answer some stuff for me. When I run the simcraft addon in WoW and copy the data from the pop up window and paste it into the simcraft program and run it, I take the pawn string from the results and plug it into pawn. Now I know our stat priorities, and I don't know if it's because I've been upgrading from like ~850 ilev pieces and pawn is suggesting upgrades based mostly on the str increase, but my haste has fallen to abysmal levels, like 15%. I'm assuming once I catch up to where upgrades are not so much about straight item level (str) increases, pawn will be suggesting upgrades based on secondary stats. Here's a link to my armory. Thank you for any suggestions.
