OK, so getting very frustrated with my DPS on Council. I’m not going to make this another “OMG Blizz buff shdw nooaaoaaaw!!!!!!!11!!!!” thread, instead I’d rather choose to work around our issues. Here is my problem… I know I can do relatively well by just multi-dotting all targets and focusing priority when I can, and while I can top the meter this way it’s mostly just padding. I cannot do that and also maximize uptime on priority target. It seems like if you want to pad on this fight, then you can rank on WoL, but if you want to get the kill you have to suck ass.
Last night I couldn’t manage to get the right talents to maximize DPS. I was mostly using FDCL, ToF, and Halo, but I didn’t really have the burst when trying to focus a target down. To improve that I tried switching to SW:I, DI, and Halo, and while my burst on the focus target went up I went down on the meters substantially. My other thought was to take FDCL & DI, dot everything and then unload all procs on kill target. I didn’t try this last night because I usually like to avoid taking FDCL & DI together as it usually means a DPS loss.
What should my DPS strategy be on this? I know getting the kill is more important than topping the charts, but I can’t very well tell my other raiders that they need to step up their DPS when I’m in 3rd or 4th place (I’m the RL).
I can’t link logs right now (at work), but I’ll get them linked when I get home =)
Thanks for any help you can give. I'm getting uber-frustrated and I'm sure any tips would help.
