Ive been raiding as elemental shaman (resto offspecc) since Wrath of the Lich King. N
Never before have I felt it so painful and at unease when raiding. I have been watching elemental dps videos, reading up on the class etc to make sure I am 120% updated on the best rotation and so on.
Still I find myself usually it at the bottom in my 10man group. Its not fun when people are commenting on it. Like "Hey, whats up with your dps?" Its the first time that never happened to me. I was on top on Baleroc Heroic in Firelands for example. Ive never had this issues before.
I have good latency, around 40 ms. I use WeakAuras to keep track on every single cd (long and short) that even in minor ways affect my dps.
For order sake I will write down what I do for my rotation (in order).
1. Flame Shock on target.
2. Lava Burst.
3. Elemental Blast.
4. Searing Totem. (If Elemental on CD)
5. Spam LBs.
6. Use Earthshock at 6-7 stacks unless there is less than 5 seconds before Flame Shock is running out on my target.
For pulling I do this:
2. Flame Shock on target.
3. Elemental Blast.
4. Spaming my "Nuke Macro" which pops up: Ascendance - Blood Fury (Orc Racial) - Stormlash - Fire Elemental (Only BL if we BL at start)
5. Spam Lava Bursts untill Ascedance is over. Then goes to normal dps priority.
I stack for INT, then HASTE, then Mastery (keeping hitcap at 15% ofc).
I am at 496 ilevel. I have almost around 23% haste. My LB has a 1.68 cast time under normal conditions.
Yet, at most fights I pop up to 160k during pull because of all cds are popped. But falling down to around 72k.
Sometimes ofc, when I have to dodge raid mechanics or something I might forget to pop a searing totem now and then, but its rare. I shouldnt loose 30k over stuff like this.
I usually end up at 72k-75k-80k. Which keeps be above tanks but equally geared guildies of mine who are Shadowpriest, Locks, Hunters, Rogues are at 90k-120k at the end of the fight. Thats sometimes a 40k difference on even gear.
I want to run under my bed and cry. I try to convince my guildmaster that Elemental is not up there with Affliction etc, but I must to what I can to increase dps anyway.
I want to link armory but I cant log into wow-europe it seems. My nick is Ioneye on Ragnaros EU.
Please help. This is an act of desperation.
