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.

      <Pickle Palace> is a recently formed guild on Illidan, but is made up of veteran players who wanted to take a step back from semi-hardcore raiding. We are currently raiding Mythic Antorus (9/11), with our goal being to finish it out before the end of the expansion. Our community is actively playing outside of raid time, pushing M+ and hanging out on discord.

      We raid on a 2 day schedule. Our raid days are Tuesday and Wednesday 9-12 EST. And will be adding a 3rd raid day for BfA! (Thursday or Monday)

      We are currently recruiting,

      All Exceptional Ranged DPS
      &
      Shaman w/ offpsec heals

      Expectations
      Have a great attitude every night. Be prepared for every raid; this includes purchasing consumables and studying encounter strategies. We provide feast/codex/flasks other consumables are your responsibility Zero tolerance policy for criticizing others' performance. Officers will take care of it, worry about yourself and yourself only. Be critical of your performance and take time outside of raiding hours to analyze warcraftlogs for personal improvement. Have fun. We love playing with each other in a friendly, team-oriented, boss-crushing atmosphere -- and you should too! Must be able to tolerate adult language
      If you are interested in joining <Pickle Palace> please contact,

      Hi everyone. I just killed HC Varimathras and I was surprised by my low damage. There was not second time warp because we used the first one at 20% HP but I think I should get higher numbers. Can anyone tell me what did I do wrong? Was it really only in TW? I do not think so :/.

      Looking for a fun, casually serious progression guild? Hordeland Security could be your new home! We started at launch, and have raided on Blackhand, Baelgun, and now Turalyon. 

      We currently raid on Tuesdays and Thursdays 7:00- 9:15 Central Time. We understand that no one has an unlimited amount of time to play. We raid with a fun, casual, yet goal oriented focus; we achieve AotC in current content and then progress into Mythic. We also have a few that pvp, and we've been known to also do mog/achievement runs.
      Interested? Drop us a line!

      -or-
      lil ol' me - Maplefire#1200 - (mention you're from the Icy Veins thread in the friend request so my brain won't explode)
      Thanks for your consideration - happy raiding!

      I'm not entirely sure what I am doing wrong that is getting me this result, but I am getting about a 30k dps difference on training dummy when I use a defile, clawing shadows, shadow infusion build than when I use the recommended talents. I left the rest of my talents unchanged and I have yet to see where the dps difference is coming from (arbiter or clawing shadows), but I'm very confused as to how this could happen.

      Defile damage breakdown, Arbiter damage breakdown
      I felt like I had a harder time keeping my disease up and using coldheart on cooldown (or rather whenever at max stacks) with the arbiter build. Am I missing some key thing or do I just need to git gud? Thanks in advance for any help.
