What to look at when you read Shadow Priest DPS logs?

2 posts in this topic

Hi everyone!

I'm a newcomer to this Priest forum and to Shadow Priest aswell.

My question is pretty much topic title : what should I look at when analysing mine/sb else's DPS log? 
There is no simple measure like DoT uptime or something, amirite?

Procs and DPS cooldowns syncronisation?
Amount of Mind Blast's divided by fight length?
MFI casts after DP?

I'd like to find it out.

Thanks for sharing your opinions and knowledge!

I just analyzed a poster's logs and what I focused on was the Casts tab.  Were they casting MB every 6 seconds?  Were they double-casting death and using it on cooldown during execution?  Were they dotweaving?

 

The Resource tab has been helpful in the past but it seems it might be broken at the moment.  (letting you track the number of shadow orbs they had, to see if they were dotweaving correctly)

      Currently I'm an iLevel of 872 and am putting out far less DPS than I should. On the boss level training dummy I can maintain around 300k and burst up to 400k w/ PI. Which I also know with my iLevel is probably still considered on the lower end of good. However, once I step into a boss fight my DPS barely surpasses our tanks.

      I'm beginning to think I have no idea how to approach a rotation because of these numbers

      Please help with whatever advice you can offer!

      Here is my Armory: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/t ... ros/simple

      And my logs: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/c ... 845/latest

      Let me know what you think!

      Hi all, looking for some advice on SPriest. Recently leveled and geared up in order to fill a ranged slot in guild, but my DPS feels very light. I'm ranking in the bottom 10% of parses on Normal NH (see logs of latest run).

      I'm not running a STM build, I'm living through fights - and as far as I can tell have stuck pretty rigidly to the recommended rotation and gearing (~12k haste, mastery > crit), my DOT uptime is solid, and I'm stringing out voidform as well as I can. I've got 35 points in my weapon.

      Any advice appreciated!

      Union is an Alliance guild on Uldum (PVE server) - I will keep this short. We are looking to add two ranged dps to our core mythic team. We would prefer a hunter/shadow priest/boomkin. We are currently 9/10 Heroic in Nighthold after 2 nights of heroic raiding. We were 7/7M in EN and 2/3M in ToV. We raid:

      Tuesday - 8-11 EST
      Thursday - 8-11 EST
      Sunday 7-11 EST

      We recruit players that have a good attitude, have high dps and are good with mechanics and movement. 

      If interested, add me on btag: Stormcaster#1629

      I'm considering taking on the challenge of the shadow priest as my guild needs ranged dps and the idea of a difficult but solid spec sounds fun, though I don't want to only be useful when I can keep up S2M and crap otherwise. I heard before 7.1.5 that they were weak dps until they master a broken talent and then skyrocket to the top of the meters.

      Hello fellas and Shadow Priest friends!
       
      I got a semi-big problem and I hope that some of you guys could help me. I think my DPS is too low for my GS and I am clueless what I could do different to have more damage done! I mean I don't think myself a total noob and I am better than the most Shadows I see when I go dungeons or raid but I know I could do more ...
       
      Here is my gear (which btw is trangsmogged pretty stilishly :p)

      Here are the logs of yesterday - Monday, 11.14.2016

      Don't look at Ursoc or the Nightmare Dragons ... I died too early and I was derp :s
      I think a good damage boss for Shadow Priests is Elerethe, as you can use your S2M as soon as you land on the second platform yet I only have 315k. An other example is Odyn with 280k. I mean okay, we tried him the first time and wiped once but he is not really complicated and I got a good hang on him and still I wonder how some Shadow Priests have over 400k DPS fighting Odyn. I know I only have one Legendary and it's not very good but luck's not on my side I guess. 
       
      Any hints what I do better to be THE DPS monster :D, or atleast have more DPS?
       
      Have a nice everyone and I want to thank you in advance for all your helpful tips!
