Snaped

Fine tuning boomkin performance

First off, thank you guys for great discussions! I've learned a lot and continue to do so!

 

I'd appreciate an evaluation of this log: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/kR7tJjwYqX4dQCnB#fight=9&type=damage-done&source=150

 

Here is my armory: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/Mal'Ganis/Snape/simple

 

This is the most accurate representation of a Patchwerk fight available (no Butcher knock-backs). I did not go into the stands and I never had to move. With my item level being 662, I should expect higher numbers. Take note that I had a 636 cloak on during this kill, as well as normal boots. 

 

When inspecting logs with the same ilvl and situation (I mainly checked Butcher, which only furthers my confusion since I should be able to perform better on this fight than Butcher), I simply cannot out-damage people with similar item level. Granted, I'm comparing myself to the best boomkins that are logging, but there is no excuse why I can't do the same. 

 

The largest thing that pops out for me is that my spells simply hit less hard. I may attribute my weapon ilvl for this (everyone else with these parses have heroic and mythic weapons), but I can't imagine the spellpower making too much a difference. I understand that I should have the mastery enchant on my weapon, but money is tight and our raid hasn't had a weapon drop in our full heroic clears in two weeks (otherwise I'd have that heroic weapon correctly enchanted in a heartbeat). 

 

Here's my opener:

2s-Incarnation

1s-Potion

Pull-CA/berserking/shards

Moonfire

Starsurge

SF.....

 

I realized the silliness that was using haste actives during instant casts, so I've moved them to the starfire cast since this log. In a typical fight, I'll use my 2nd potion at 3m. 

 

I appreciate all that you guys do here, and I hope I can get some insight on what I'm doing incorrectly!

You're putting up some pretty spectacular numbers for having a 645 weapon. DoT uptime is perfect. However, there is one major problem: you keep overwriting your Empowerment buffs with new applications of Starsurge. In order not to waste the buff, you should substitute Starfall whenever you need to cast Starsurge, but shouldn't because you have your current eclipse cycle's Empowerment buff active.

Berserking is the troll racial for 15% haste.

      Hi, i have just tried out some Antorus bosses in mythic and i saw, that my logs are so.... 
      In heroic difficulty my logs are better. So I have no idea, what am I doing wrong there... As I am doing the same thing, only with a bit more tactics...
      Can anybody give some tips, on this matter?

      For Legion we are AOTC for all raid content.
      We are looking for:
       
      DPS
      Ranged:
      Hunter
      Warlock
      Mage

      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.
