Hello, I've been playing elemental since early firelands when the set bonus for our elemental was "broken". Since then I've always managed to pull competitive dps staying marginally higher than the few guys I play with. I'm not gonna brag and say im better than them, but I normally blow them out the water when it comes to keeping uptime/activity and sustaining higher damage on the bosses.
They/we all started back in MoP kinda late, in the middle of Throne Of Thunder actually. All my friends (boomkin/mage) all had a nice set of gear to start in when I was just getting out of heroics. Since then I've never really been able to catch up in item level at all. My problem is this expansion imstruggling to come even close to them; I normally can overcome gear-score with basic up-time/activity count and still stay close to them easily.
What im wondering is how strong is scaling this expansion, should I be worried that they are blowing me out the water on fights with like 15item level higher?
If I had to guess, Id think trinkets are the issue they both are in at least ToT raid-finder trinkets or higher. Im still wearing two 476 trinkets with one upgraded. |
I wish I had a World of Logs file to share but I don't just yet. I'm normally pretty good with the rotation.. try keeping up flame-shock on three targets when possible, chain lighting when it can bounce.
FS(>3),LvB>EB>ES(<6s)>LB 100%uptime on searing and I manage fire ele and ascendance so I get to use them as much as possible during the fight.
If you can see any notable problems from my gear or have any idea why my damage is so low compared to them, please help. I'm not gonna say I'm the best player in the world. But I'm normally good when it comes to up time and activity; I'm always casting.
Really stressing me out that I cant be competitive this expansion thus far. Hoping it has to do with gear and not be missing out on something. Gears just not dropping for me yet.
