LF some SPriest Help

Hello all! I am looking for some help for one of my raiders. Her DPS seems a bit lower for her ilvl. Unfortunately, with the new changes to SPriest, I am unable to provide the help that she deserves. I'm looking for any advice and was wondering if anybody could take a look at our logs and potentially analyze them. Any assistance with this would be greatly appreciated:

The SPriest in Question is Sassenachh

Thank you,
Rohhan

Low gain on Shadow orbs compared to the other priest, (her with 34, them with 38(for Butcher, this issue was consistent through other fights)), whilst it's not bad it's enough orbs to make up a DP which means she lost one DP which is.. a DPS loss)

On the more movement fights her shadow orb gain drops a LOT. She *needs* to make sure she's using mind blast on CD and using shadow word: death on CD in execute phase. On fights with adds - shadow word: death snipe! It gives orbs + DPS.

I know movement is hard for shadow, since a lot of stuff has a cast-time. But there are things she *can* do on the move, her mind blast, her shadow word: death, power word: shield since there's no disc priest and she's using reflective shield. 
On fights with adds that will live the duration of the DoTs she should be multi-dotting. (Tectus, Brackenspore, Ogron(dots on one, other DPS on other))

Also, for HEAVY movement, I.E Tectus and Ogron, she should take the Surge of Darkness talent because it gives free instant mind spikes. 

Also, it looked like she's glyphed shadow word: death? If she has I wouldn't do that.
Could probably also cast Halo a bit more.
Anyways, I'm gonna leave it at that because that's probably all the advice I can give(I'm no shadow priest, I have basic knowledge so you get basic-level help from me) So I'm gonna let someone who knows shadow better to take over from here.
(Also, for future people who come here, the armoury of the priest in question is here that way you don't need to go searching like I did)

Editing an afterthought: when you relay this advice back to her, I would recommend to her that if she needs further help that she maybe come herself, that way there's no risk of miscommunication through a middle-man such as yourself. But I'm glad to see your trying to help your raiders improve rather than just telling them they need to improve but they need to do so alone or get kicked or something like that, that's always a good thing to do and not something that's always done.

Arright let's pick a fight...  H Kargath kill.  She scored 15k dps to the other priest's 20.

 

==Kargath==

 

It appears that Surge of Darkness talent was taken for this fight.  I don't think there's enough movement to justify it, I would go with Insanity instead.

 

Didn't potion during bloodlust (did prepot though.)

 

Execution priority should be to cast Dev Plague only when you're at max shadow orbs, or MB and SW:Death are on cooldown.  There's no rush to spend at 4- shadow orbs.  (it's hard to say this for 100% sure though, the logging this time was a little inaccurate in regards to shadow orbs.)

 

SW:Death was not cast anywhere near often enough during execution phase.

 

She appears to be using a dotweave, which surprised me given her dps.

 

She left Shadowfiend off cooldown for 48 seconds.  Not a problem in and of itself on this fight since it lasts less than 6 minutes, but potentially indicitive of other problems. 

 

That's all I can see for now. 

 

I echo all of Kulia's sentimates above.  Kudos to you, and please send her here if more help is required.  We'd be glad to assist.  Good luck

Hello, people pretty much covered what needs to be said about her performance, but I would like to add that since she is using clarity of power and I see from her log MS and MB are her top damage so she's using the MS/MB dot weaving rotation; gem and enchant mastery instead of haste.

Thank you!

Hmmm.  Actually, that is true.  Haste is important up to 15%.  I'd replace those enchants with mastery.  Also, no neck enchant.

My gear was worse than hers when I did h kargath (blues and 545-549 ilvl) doing 23k Dps to her 15k. I feel that mastery is the easiest stat to get up by 1% compared to haste. And kargarth is pretty stationary if you position yourself properly. Her execute phase could be way better.

I would suggest to her to never waste her shadow orbs. If you have double swd and your first swd gives you 5 orbs, hit dp then do the next swd and try to keep mb off cd as much as you can without over capping dp which should be easy to do.

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which semi-recently transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some shit.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are in need of any competent DPS, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.

      Hay,
       
      I seem to struggle to get better DPS. I figured out that i used chaos strike and blade dance to less. and i should use less Throw glaive and fellrush. 
      But i stil seem to have trouble getting my dps on.  Please take a look on the logs at the 14th. 
      I really dislike using the "eye beam build" (it feel slow to me) so i still use the 2221311 build.
