Enhance DPS Help

8 posts in this topic

Hey all --

 

We have given Heroic Imperator a try and I find myself struggling with DPS. Our raid leader wants us all to ideally be putting out close to 30k but I'm stuck at around 18-22k. (Logs here). Can anyone see any glaring inconsistencies in my priority that would keep my DPS low? 

 

Thanks to all in advance!

Hi there Forwardthrall! Sadly, there is more than one Enhancement Shaman in your raid and we don't know which you are. Please could you link your armoury, to help us out?

 

Thanks! :)

He ended his post with "Rukena", so i'm gonan assume that's him :)

In general Ench shamans shine on imp because you can abuse fire nova, especially in intermission phases and phase 4

Moar fire nova!

 

Are you using flame shock everytime you have unleash flame? As i thought you it was better to use frost shock.

Here's my fight as enhance so you can compare. Your DPS will skyrocket in P4 due to all the little adds, and that's when DPS is the most important. As for the rest of the time you really only need your burst DPS for mages, and reaver. Personally i save my 2nd fire ele totem for the reaver and nuke the hell out of him. I also take elemental mastery and unleashed fury for this fight due to the Extra MS from unleash and Elemental Mastery + Liquid Magma is just insane damage.

Hello, 

 

My comments are: 

 

Queries

1.) Why do you cast healing surge in the fight? 

2.) Why do you cast searing totem multiple times before it has expired? Are you trying to reposition the totem? 

3.) How are you casting Lightning Bolt? Are you using it on 5 stacks? 

4.) Can you describe how you spread flameshock to the adds? 

5.) Can you share which one you prioritise more? Stormstrike or Lavalash? 

 

 

Observations

1.) Liquid Magma isn't cast on CD (every 45s) all the time. You lost out on 1 cast of Liquid Magma, which is a decent gain in dps. 

2.) Missing Gems and Enchants: Undying boots of the strategist, Both Rings

3.) You seem to be using your other CDs like feral spirit, ascendance, ancestrial swiftness well. 

4.) The previous poster is right. Fire Nova makes a huge difference when you have a large number of adds. This will help you catch up very quickly. Enhancement just isn't good that good in single target or in cleave.

      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.
