First off to start - I don't know anything about mages, thus I cannot say is he doing decently or not, to his gear level.
Last night we barely killed Protectors and just couldn't get past Tsulong (though we've killed him with a different group).
When I asked our mage to do more DPS on Tsulong, he said that he just cannot do any more. From what I understood, he didn't stay at 100% mana as he suppose to be as Arcane. Also he said that cannot use his mana circle thing (I don't know the skill name, sorry), as it required movement. He was tasked to deal with Sha spawns on one side in Day phase. And ofc in night moving in and out of pillars and out of the Shadows is not easy probably as well.
But i general I feel he could do bit more with his gear. But again, I don't know anything about mages and that DPS of his could be the one he can do...
To his defense I can say that he rolled a mage, as he felt that boomkin was not for him.
In general what kind of DPS can an average mage (pls don't compare him or our entire raid to elite groups, as we are not one) with sub-par skill level do with his gear? Any "normal" arcane mage log would help me out as well, so I can use the compare bot so see and show him what skill usage he should improve.
Also do you have tips or tricks for the rest of the bosses in ToES which could help him do more damage? Maybe he should try different spec out?
His armory. (he got his leggings just last night, probably that's why they're unenchanted (replaced PvP ones)).
