I searched and I searched, but could not find the typical Fix my DPS! thread that most of the class forums have. So I am starting a new one.
Just recently re-rolled to a Druid from Mage/Holy Paladin and am trying to pick up Balance on the fly during progression. I haven't posted up until this week as I have been playing catch up on the legendary quest and gearing. Now that I am there, I need to figure out what I am doing wrong.
I am tracking Meta Gem proc, NG, Black Blood trinket proc and Synapse Springs up time to try and reapply dots in the most optimum time.
Things I know right off the bat:
My Synapse Spring usage needs to improve
Second potion moar
Don't die (I died in two or more of the fights)
One thing that I feel I may be doing wrong is clipping my Eclipse improved dots when I reach the other Eclipse. Eg. Re-applying sunfire with more than a second or two remaining on the dot that was applied in eclipse when I reach Lunar Eclipse. Not sure if this is a big deal, but it seems like a 55% damage increase on the dot that is applied is important.
Basically I am looking for the more experienced Balance Druids in here to give me some ideas to improve because I feel I am right on the edge of pushing over into strong output. Could my numbers be really affected by the trinkets I have? I know neither are "ideal," but I can't see that making a 40-80k DPS difference between a similarly geared Balance Druid in my guild.
