Hello, I made my monk fairly recently and am decently geared but my dps is still low according to simc.i should be doing around 30k but I'm around 21-23k. It's worth noting that I did not have my mythic weapons on this kargath attempt.

My rotation is pretty standard 100% TP, RSK on cd, FoF on cd (I might delay a little bit to wait for 10 teb if I'm at 9 or a trinket cd is about to end), serenity of cd, chiwave, and fillers and Trying to not hit 100 energy.

Kargath on Mythic isn't exactly a patchwerk fight, there is a lot of movement and other things to keep track of that will decrease your DPS. You won't have 100% uptime which makes reaching your sim DPS even harder than it already is.

Note: it is next to impossible to do your sim DPS, if you're 1-2K below it then you've done nothing wrong. Humans are not machines.

 

Quick notes about your gear:

A ring with mastery and Bonus armor?! I hope you logged of with wrong ring there mister!

You might want to invest in some more multistrike, according to armory you have more mastery than you have multistrike right now, this is not good for your DPS.

Wondering how your toon can be sim'd to 30K when my own monk sits at 28 with more than twice that multistrike and higher ilvl. Is it your own sims that put you at 30K, or somebody elses?

 

Anyways

 

As we all know, all hell can break loose on wipes, because of that, and me having limited amount of time writing this up, I'll only be looking at the 2 last fights. The kill and the 7 min one.

 

That said:

TP only had 84% uptime, this is really low. You want it to be at least 97% (7 min version this seems lower because you died, but the uptime could use some working on nevertheless)

RSK uptime was even lower: 71% (this too dropped off at times on the part where you were alive during the 7 min version)

 

Another thing is Energizing Brew, you want to use this as much as possible, you used it twice in an almost 6 min long fight.

I realize Kargath on Mythic has lots of downtime and such, meaning energy regen isn't the problem, rather staying close enough to actually spend the energy is, causing Energizing Brew to be used far less! But this could be improved

 

Chi Wave did really little damage, it has higher DPE than Blackout Kick so if you have the choice between Chi Wave or a normal (not procced) Blackout Kick you should use Chi wave (obviously not if you need to Jab to avoid energy reaching 100 and you already have 4+ Chi)

 

You cast SCK once. If you went up to the crowd, this was very little. If you didn't, then you lost a bit of DPS there. Don't!

 

Your Tigereye Brew pops seem okay, looks like you did them with trinkets and/or other procs so no issue there.

 

All in all: focus on keeping TP and RSK up and fill in with Chi Wave more. Maximize your uptime by using Transcendence and other movement spells (we have tons!)

Yea,this log was not the best example lots of running around and not building or using chi. Also the spinning crane kick was me freaking out when a tiger came my way lol didn't mean to use it.

As for the bonus armor ring it's the best that has dropped atm, my guild had me reroll from pally, this character is really new and I plan on replacing the ring with the 680 one tomorrow.

On the topic of gear, getting multistike is a bit difficult this tier as it seems if the ilvl is higher the the gear is better regardless of secondary stats ( according to simc atleast) I assume this is due to agility having a lot of weight.

Lastly I have a favor to ask is it possible that we could go over some logs together in VOIP or even in game chat? I understand if you don't want to, but I really want to improve and you seem very helpful.

Thank you for helping me! Sorry for any typos I'm actually at work on my phone lol

P.s. I use Simc it's prob the sick bonus armor ring that makes me sim 30k, it's more like 29.5 ish

      Since 7.3.5 I have gotten some decent gear and have been using  SimCraft to see what the average difference in the two talents. I simmed them with the Mangaza's Madness belt combined with.  Sephuz and Soul of the High Priest, and with and without 4pc t21 (because some of the gear that breaks tier is 15+ ilvl better).  So far with my 4pc, sephuz, and FotM it simmed *55k higher than Twist of Fate and any combination. I assume the sim procs Sephuz every 30 sec, which is kind of unrealistic, but I was shocked the dps was so much lower using ToF and FotM. 
       
      Any thoughts on the two talents? Does anyone use FotM?  I have started using it and generally average 1.5m dps without BL and north of 2m with. 
       
      Here is my armory link, not sure why it shows my haste much lower than it is in game. In game w/o buffs its 43% ~15,500 or so
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/magtheridon/anemic 
      *(edit: originally put 500 it wasnt 500k, checked my Sim logs and I was mistaken with my lock sim.  Priest sim was 55k better, sort of negligible but worth debating the talents maybe)

      Hey, so I could really use some help with this, I'm lost trying to understand the logs and I feel like there's a lot of stuff I could improve on. Any tips or pointers at all would be really appreciated. I hope this log is of a usable kind: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/kLr8fqPD9HcyTxJF

      (Mine is Qraul, the only DH in the group.)
      And really, if anyone would be kind enough to bother, I could really use a "teach a man to fish" scenario here, if you'll pardon the analogy. I've been meaning to learn to interpret and improve from logs but it has seemed like a kind of daunting thing to deal with.

      Hey guys,
      I'm new here in the Icy Veins forums and would like to request your assistance.
      So this is my Mage https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/id/14478881 haven't been playing Legion for a long time (around 2 weeks and a half), been trying to start rading so I would like to improve my DPS, I'm running GS.
      What I would like to ask you guys is if you could check me out and see what I could improve, it's been hard to get some more gear now since it's hard to get into groups, plus my pawn addon seems like its kind of bugged which is kind of confusing me about gear/stats. I know my stat priority for GS Build but nor sure about stat weigths for it.
      Hope you guys can help me, thank you in advance !

      So, I've been rather disheartened by my current DPS as a sub rogue in tomb. I feel that I have the burst windows down with the rec'd talents, my opener is usually solid unless affected by mechanics, not to mention ilvl, but I'm hitting nowhere near the burst damage of other sub rogues that not only are my ilvl but over 10 or 15 lower - even without the t20 two piece. And not just burst, but overall damage output, I'm nowhere up to par making the numbers that other sub rogues are. 
      The only thing that I have noticed when using the compare feature on warcraft logs is : every person parsing above ~850k has the convergence of fates trinket, and the denial of the half giants wrist leggie. (Mantle is also typically what they have too, but I've seen others with the leggies I have of insignia of ravenholdt or valeera legs.)
      Is sub's dps right now really that dependent on the uptime of shadow blades as to why we are parsing as top spec for tomb since the class changes? I understand how powerful it is, but the fact of the matter is that RNG has not decided to bestow upon me either the trinket or legendary, so any fight longer than two minutes or so my dps and damage is down the drain. Should I be rolling with different talents to compensate for my lack of these things to get better results? I've played around with not using death from above and it wasn't a gain, as did AMR tell me that it wouldn't be, as well as running sims with my current gear and other talent combos amr always tells me I won't get the best results.
       Or I have wondered, I see people saying about not backstabbing too much. Is it truly a dps gain to just stand there autoattacking? The combo points generated automatically are slow to come when they do, and I fear pooling for that long just autoattacking will result in a damage loss? 
      Here is a link to my logs page. https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/us/cenarion-circle/adassos# I have seen an increase with my gain of ilvl, but it's poor and I'm still in the lowest percentiles for spec and ilvl. Any advice or if it truly is based on those rng items would be helpful, thanks.

      Hi guys, I'm new here in Icy Forums but always checked the site for information, you guys do an awesome job. I'm dpsing in Legion as a Ret Pally and I'm having a little issues with dps constancy. I can easily do a burst of 300k in one target fight, but when I look overall my dps is always near 190k. I will put some info to see if you guys could help me to see what I'm doing wrong.
      My armory Armory - Saskov (Gallywix)
        The rotation I usually do is: (burst) Crusade, Greater Judgment,       if AoE:  Wake of Ashes - Divine Storm - Crusader Strike - Divine Storm - Blade of Justice - 
       
      Divine Storm - Crusader Strike
      Single Target: Blade of Justice - Crusader Strike - Templar's Verdict or Justicar's Vengeance when low life Wake of Ashes to fill Blade of Justice cd
      A log of my guild 7/7N EN https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/68NG1QXkH2Zpg4jb/#type=damage-done&source=11 Really don't know what I can do to improve it, I had a complete revamp of stats (I was advised to focus Haste till 22% > Crit = Vers > Mastery)
      I thank you guys since now.
