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.

      <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.
