So we went from 25N to 10HC last night. I was doing half-way decent in 25, with 50-60k by the end of the fight, and about 20mil+ damage. Now though I feel I'm doing worse, disregarding the fact that I've only had 3 tries on it. Only did 10mil dmg and 26k dps 7 mins into it and our fire mage does double on both figures.
What can I do to improve it overall?
Should I reforge everything into mastery for this fight? (I also have a Razer Naga to abuse for easy MF and steering) http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/characte...argur/advanced
p.s. log if it matters http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/q0pb6ux9r2klmx8t/
Not sure what you're doing, but as long as you're getting all the rings, keep your rotation up as normal, vamp touch SWP and DP should alwasy be up, once you get the extra crit buff you should be using shadowfiend as much as possible. i've done it myself many times, tell me what you are doing during the fight and maybe i can help you some more
With that gear, 60k at the end of the fight on 25N is pretty horrible, seeing as I did 85kish with almost the same gear (worse rings and neck and legs).
My guess is that u must have missed many rings, or just failed at keeping up your rotation. Checked the logs, your MB cast is waaaay lower than it should be, and so is your VT uptime. 33% ES uptime is veeery bad

By MY hand, your slack shall be extinguished, eternally banished from this realm.
Yeah, you let it fade between landings, when you should be getting Razor just before the second landing. Since you have a fire mage, you can just send him up if you need the people on the ground to clear the adds away. We really messed this up last night (to the point where I was ashamed to kill it) and still managed it on the first attempt...
Remember you dont need to go down for firestorms, just stay up in air, disperse through firestorms (in fact you can even self-heal yourself through them but dangerous). Remember to use Glyph of Dispersion.
You dont ever have to go down for firestorm; disperse every first and outheal ever second (renew + spam GH on urself (the amount of haste you got makes ur renew tick like 3 times per second, obv (near) guaranteed crits and GH will sort the rest)), this way u get more uptime and shouldn't miss any ring.

Also, make a power auras for all 3 of the buff/denuded for flying (Wing duration, crit duration and haste stacks) so you know how much "slack" you got. Once u get the crit buff you can easily fly down and help with adds by dotting them)
moshic, you don't need practice -- you are doing something fundamentally wrong. after firestorm you just spam clicked feathers even though it didn't do anything.

pre-nerf in heroic it helped a lot to use a /cancelaura macro so you could click on a new feather to shoot you up / refresh wings of flame immediately after firestorm. when they changed it to 30 seconds they made it entirely unnecessary afaik.
fly down or disperse firestorm, immediately fly back up.
Good tip Jinxiijay and sahtila. What would be the point where MB would stop being useful, compared to MF? I can usually tell myself, but it's different circumstances from 25N.
Still, no one said anything about mastery. Would reforging everything into it be beneficial overall on the fight?
There is no point at which you stop casting MB. A big MB is also worth the GCD it will cause.
Don't bother reforging to mastery, you should be able to pull ~65k at LEAST with your gear. Use your archangel properly. Once at the start, again when you get Alysra's razor, and a third time when he falls down for burnout and has 50% increased damage taken. Then just spam MF and MB on CD, and sw:death if applicable. GL.
Yea, I don't think we ever came to a definite conclusion on H2P on it. There was a lot of situational things (like fewer shadowfiends and stuff) that made it hard to pinpoint if it was actually better or not. However, it is a bit easier to manage once you are at 25 stacks, and it doesn't seem to hurt at all so if you try it and you like it then there isn't too much of a reason not to.
