Struggling To Progress - Opinions On Weak Points (World of Logs reports included)
Since taking Heroic: The Stone Guard down nearly a month ago, we have made very little progress, only managing to kill the first three bosses in Heart of Fear normal. I am becoming more and more frustrated with our lack of progress and really can't see where we are going wrong. Our tacticians are really great, and we follow any available guides, do a lot of research, etc, so it is highly unlikely that our tactics are holding us back.
I am at a loss as to where we are going wrong. Apart from blatant failures by certain players, I can't pinpoint specific weaknesses in our raid group's performance. It would be hugely helpful if I could get some advice as to who is letting the team down, simply from a performance point of view.
looking at your garalon kill this week, your ranged dps is somewhat low (for a guild pushing heroics).
You have several people taking damage from pheromone trail when ideally not a single person will take a single point of damage from it. I'm told tanks kiting struggle to not take any damage from it, I havent had a chance to try taking it to find out for myself.
Your shadow priest is offhealing too much, and the rest of your dps are probably offhealing too little.
No one is really performing fantastically or horribly. I don't see many ranks in your logs. Your logs seem incomplete, though. Missing a lot of kills.
If you really don't think it's your tactics, it looks like pretty much everyone in your raid needs to improve a little bit. Saggysue and Valorrian seem to need the most improvement. May want to post some logs in their class forums for tips.
My recommendation to solve your problem:
- 3 heal the fight to avoid random deaths when healers get trapped, and from Rain of Blades after the adds are dead.
- Do more DPS so you can afford to 3 heal it.
If you can't afford to 3 heal it, then you'll need to make sure you're maximizing your CD usage for Raid of Blades and stacking to heal through it (but obviously running out as soon as it's done so you don't get a bomb in the raid).
