I need to signifigantly improve my DPS, but I'm not sure how I can do this. In the past few weeks, I've not changed anything apart from equipment but I've felt a DPS loss, or just no gain at all. 

 

SimCraft says I should be doing about 24k in my current form, but I can't seem to break ahead of 18k, or the odd 20k.

 

When beginning a fight I usually charge in, blood thirst, execute if I can, raging blow if enraged, if not pop berserker rage and go from there. I dump my rage into wild strike if I'm enraged, but conserve it if not. Or try to.

 

Any suggestions, assistance would be helpful.

Hey man, I looked at your logs and your Enrage uptime is only 37%. What this means is:

A. 63% of the time your attacks aren't doing 10% extra damage

B. Raging Blow procs

 

So then I took a look at your stats and you're only at 13% crit which means when your bloodthirst only has a 53% chance of enraging you (assuming no mark of the thunderlord(s), skull of war, or tectus trinket proc).

 

From what I can tell, your biggest problem is not having enough crit. You want at least 20% crit (to have stable enrage uptime.

 

Here's my armory to get a good idea of what your stats should look like:

TL;DR Get more crit

Thanks, Sven. Do you think it would be worth it to go back and replace some of the Highmaul epics with 630 Heroics gear for the Critical Strike?

No, as the higher STR on the highmaul epics outweighs the crit from the 630 gear.

 

Right now, our BIS gear from highmaul does not contain enough crit. With full 670 BIS gear (assuming no sockets or warforged) your crit is only around 15%.

 

Luckily I've gotten a lot of prismatic sockets for crit gems, so my crit is at 21%.

 

In my opinion the best thing you can do is pick up Arms as your offspec as Arms does significantly more damage on Tectus, Brackenspore, and Twin Ogron thanks to Arms's cleave/AOE output. I also use Arms on imperator, but fury is about the same for imperator.

 

As you can tell on this warcraftlogs link (https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/6#class=Warrior) Fury warriors perform better on the single target fights (Kargath, Butcher, Ko'ragh), Arms performs better on the AOE/cleave fights (Tectus, Bracken, Twins), and both are generally the same for imperator.

Update. Went Arms, at Sven's suggestion and much as I wanted to stay Fury, for Imperator and my DPS jumped up by 5k.

Thanks, Sven!

You're welcome! I wouldn't give up on Fury in the future, Fury tends to be not so good at the beginning of an xpac and then amazing towards the end (like in MOP)

      Strangely Ironic is guild of friends and family that has been around the block a couple times. We are trying to recruit active players to form a raid team. Due to RL and the age of the game our ranks have dwindled. We are a casual guild looking to raid two nights a week from 9pm EST to 11pm EST; days of the week will change as I work shift work. If you want to join and don't want to raid we are still accepting all applicants as we want to foster an active community.
      No hot-heads please, as we are a guild who recognizes that this is just a game and we are all here to have fun and relax.
      If you are interested add reddfoxx#1496 or head to strangelyironic.enjin.com to fill out an application.

      We're a guild looking for people who want to have a great time, hang out with each other, laugh and have fun while killing stuff in raids! 

      Guild Name: RaidCat
      Faction: Alliance
      Realm (EU): Silvermoon
      Realm Type: PVE
      Realm Timezone: CEST
      Progression: 8/11 HC Antorus
      Raid Times: 19:30st - 22:00st
      Raid Schedule: Friday and Monday (additional raids on Wednesday for alts, mythic etc)
      Openings: Range DPS (help us knock those melee off the top of the meters!)

      We raid twice a week in the evenings with optional extra runs appearing as requested. 
      Currently we also raid on Wednesdays (normal) to help gear up mains and alts.
      As our raid roster increases and  heroic progress continues Wednesday evening will likely become a mythic progression night. However mythic is not our end goal or focus, but rather something we try to make extra time for. Social members also welcome!

      Looking for: Range DPS (warlock, mage, hunter, shadow priest, hunter) Other applications considered.

      We do everything from Transmog runs, PVP, Mythic+ and whatever else you can think of, with our main focus on raiding.

      We are aiming for a relaxed yet skilled raiding environment where people can fill in for each other, not having to worry about always attending since people can fill in for you, focusing on having fun and improving ourselves with each kill.

      We do care about people following tactics and knowing what they're doing (so do your homework or ask for help!) so we may actually get some stuff done as well, that's why we're looking mainly for experienced raiders that want a more flexible environment (if you are new to raiding you are still welcome)

      We use Discord and you are welcome to join and hang out before deciding to move over.

      Hello my Demonhunter Fellows! :)
      I´m one of those Demon Hunter Players, that is still playing with T20 Set. But i look forward to switch to my T21 "sweet" Demonic Build soon.
      So here´s my question: Theres pretty much an even opinion pool of people saying i should play with Raddon's Cascading Eyes + Anger of the Half-Giants and people saying Delusions of Grandeur + Anger of the Half-Giants ... I think both have a good effect with the new Demonic Build but which is better? Due to the fact, that these are 2 Set piece slots it would be nice to know which is BiS.

      Hello everyone,
       
      i changed class from Priest a few weeks ago, and i really like the Fire playstyle overall, even if i know that frost is performing better ATM.
      However, everytime i see the logs of my Raid Leader at the end of the raid, i see that i'm in the lowest percentile for Fire Mages equipped as me in ILVL values. For that reason, i decided to start a post in the Forum: this situation is stressing me out during raid, and i don't know how to solve it.
      Here is the link to my armory, as well as to the last week fight (as well as an older one)
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/it-it/character/nemesis/swari
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/WxYcrVtp2F78HafN/
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/K6kpD3ACFnWyhQbM/
      The problems i know i currently have are;
      Not using Firestarter: i'll start using it in the next raid. From what i understood, i simply  play in the first 10% life of the boss as if i have Combustion on, and activate it at the end; Having a crappy combination of Legendaries (Kil'Jaeden and Pyrotext). My other alternatives ATM are Prydaz, Insigna and Soul. It is possible that just from the crappy Legendaries i result in a crappy DPS? Overall, comparing to my guildmates, i have a decent DPS, but i think that with my gear i should perform better, isn't it?
       
      Please let me know if you need anything else in order to give me advices
       
      Thanks in advance, see you around
