    Need help with my DPS. I know it is extremely low for my gear level and I have no idea what I am doing wrong.

    I can answer any questions you need just reply. Would like to get some help before Tuesday, when we start Heroics.

    Hi!

    Playing aff, this is a heroic stone guard 25man kill:

    http://worldoflogs.com/reports/rt-35...=10607&e=11005

    Also, here is my video:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHl7c5PiXmw

    I know the one thing we were told was to stay alive and not focus so much on DPS, so I did a bit of wandering around to avoid shit. I think personally I could be dotting more than just the two main mobs with corruption/agony, as well as my haunts being really low. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

    Hey guys,

    I'm leading a raid of what started as a PUG. We always noticed that our Warlock wasn't in the upper DPS ranks, but since we are attempting Elegon now, I figured I should somehow help him improve his DPS. I now know that destruction is not the best raiding-specc, but I was wondering if there are any major mistakes, as there should be more damage coming from his gear. One additional problem with him is is, that he dies much more often than other people, so it's hard to find a good WoL section. But I decided for the following three:

    Kill of Feng 10N (the WL died at the end of the fight): http://worldoflogs.com/reports/rt-xi...?s=2844&e=3315
    Elegon 10N Try: http://worldoflogs.com/reports/rt-u5...?s=1383&e=1634
    Same Try, but only damage on the Energy Charges: http://worldoflogs.com/reports/rt-u5...1634&target=30
    Armory: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/characte...poldo/advanced (Edit: he already updated his gear, so this is not the one he used to have in the WoL tries)

    Thanks for your help,
    Cheers,

    I know too little about Destro to comment, but you can at least give him the tip that Tailoring gives a pretty much free leg enchant, so he shouldn't waste his gold or resources on using the Spellthread made with Imperial Silk.

    EDIT: Just something I noticed, but he seems to have only used Dark Soul once. He should use that every time he can and line up embers to launch Chaos Bolts then. That alone should push his DPS up a bit.

    EDIT 2: And another rather basic thing: He seems to have used Conflagrate 20 times in the fight, with a 12 second cooldown that would mean 240 seconds worth of Conflagrate, while the fight lasted for 400+ seconds. In other words he's not using conflagrate on cooldown, meaning he's pushing out lots of slow Incinerates + losing damage from Conflag itsself.

    Intended as a complement to the thorough written guide, this newly updated Video should help to answer any questions you might have about why your DPS is lacking as Affliction.

    @xskarma: Thank you for pointing out these things. I'll pass them on to him.

    Slikless, your warlock buddy really needs some help. Just took a quick look at the Feng parse and his immolate uptime was 37.1%, he only cast conflagrate 20 times when he should have been able to get off 36 or so, he only used Dark Soul 1 time, he did almost 2.5mil friendly fire damage from the arcane resonance debuff, and he tried to fear the boss?

    He needs to learn the basics of how to play a warlock before anyone can give him some more in depth help

    EDIT: he also has a 20 haste / 20 hit gem in his boots.

    Hey all. Just swapped my main to a warlock for MOP after playing ret for over 2 expansions. I'm doing ok dps but i really feel i should be pulling more than i actually am. Were only in normals at the moment and not very far in but i think my biggest problem is the execute phase. I use SB:SS to refresh all dots and try to keep haunt up and drain soul, but i really dont know when to break the channel and use excess shards or not. Heres out feng kill last night

    http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/1...?s=8486&e=8984

    and my armory

    http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...eljafar/simple

    Any tips are more than welcome

    Well you are certainly not doing anything obvious wrong, you are looking fine. Probably just a question of learning to make the most of your enchant/trinket procs and use those to maximise your dps to another degree.

    About the execute, only good way to know when to break channel is to get a good castbar addon. I use gnosis, and it works for me, with perfect tick count, but I've heard people say it was inaccurate for them, so, try it and check for yourself, I guess.

    Hey guys. I've been playing a warlock for many years, but recently, I have noticed my dps is not at the level that I believe it should be. Last night during raid, I was getting beaten by another demo lock with slightly worse gear. After looking at the logs, I noticed that my soul fire damage was nowhere near as high as his, so that might be part of the reason. I was wondering if there are any other obvious mistakes that I can fix to help out my dps. Also, I noticed is that the other lock is going with a mastery-heavy build while I am going more haste, so reforging choices may have a large impact. Any help would be appreciated.

    Here are the logs from last night: http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/rt-oex52amngivhtjar/
    And here is my armory page: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...rubbebo/simple

    hey. really not happy with my dps at the minute after switching mains to a lock for this tier. my dpsas affli sucks something awful, as demo it is better but still not where i think it should be. got logs for spirit kings kill as affli and elegon wipes as both demo and affli. (pls ignore the last 3 or 4 pulls on elegon, i was sat for one of them and was not using molten core procs in an attempt to save them for the sparks so my dps is even worse than usual)

    looking for help with my gearing (although i sim my char regularly so think thats fine) and rotation.

    http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/characte...slock/advanced

    also, i find demo much much more fun, so if at all possible i would prefer to play that, but if affli performs miles ahead on some fights then tell me and ill do it

    Hi guys,

    I have my last week log from Elegon (10 N) and i did 120k dps.I could have done better becouse i forgot to start using drian soul at 25%.I could probably have done 130k.

    There are 2 things i would like to know.How the hell the first lock is doing 180k dps i'm 60k behind.

    And how can i get better at Will of emperors too.I did around 65k but its not even close to the top 200.
    I really wanna start getting ranked but i still dont have a clue whats im doing wrong.

    I can't post links yet becouse im new here but u can see my log at : worldoflogs.com/guilds/48563/ -> 21/10/2012 report.

    So i dug through the log a little bit, your dot time are good, Your drain time was bad ( as you pointed out)
    The big difference you are going to see on the top log rank and you is most certainly gear, you're mastery is still pretty low considering, you can look into dumping some of that haste into mastery, You really only need 4198 haste at this point.

    First I would suggest either leveling helpful professions or leveling your professions at all. Tailoring might be a wise choice so you can craft your own chest.
    Next I would hop on that wonderful daily grind so you can purchase the VP items, there are many upgrades there.
    If you have some spare gold or an inscriptionist laying around, the DMF trinket is also a great choice.
    You can also probably afford to go a little more under hit cap in order to stack more mastery, but I would do a sim on yourself to verify that.

    Took a quick look at your logs and armory, You are not doing anything glaringly wrong as far as your uptimes/rotation goes.
    You can do a little work with your gemming/reforging. Plugged you into wowreforge.com and you can get about 1k more mastery squeezed out by just changing things around a bit. I would suggest doing a sim on your character and plugging those stat weights in, if you are not sure how do it http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...imulationCraft is a great guide. All i have time to look at before raid, Good luck!

    Figure this might be the best place to post.

    So when I started gearing pre-raid I was forging ( and itemising) for Haste and it was going well. An upward trend in my DPS as each new item came. In full heroic blues through dungeons I was breaking 70k DPS and was very happy.

    I then started to do more frequent sims ( iterations of ten thousand) and also noticed over on Sparkplugzz thread, how he found when he hit 10% Haste, Mastery came out ahead. So I messed with Simcraft and it proved the same for me.

    So off I went and now I sit comfortably at 15% hit and 10% haste, and have done for the last two weeks. However I've noticed a massive drop in DPS. It is a struggle to break 50k DPS on occasions, even though I've gone and upgraded alot of my gear. My mechanics havn't changed and I'm comfortable with the class and what to do.

    I went back to Sparkz and asked had he noticed any difference, to which he hadn't, but did note that it appears there was something changed over the course of a week. Haste was back scaling ahead of Mastery, but a new cap of Haste brought Mastery back ahead.

    It is worth noting in terms of numbers/scaling, we are talking about .01 , but for me, its translating into a pretty big DPS difference.

    Unfortunately I dont have screenshots or logs to hand, but I know myself from review its not mechanical. I keep my DOT uptime over 96% ( which could be better, but am happy enough with) but my main concern is that with no mechanical chagne (if anything I'm more familiar with the spec now) I'm having a massive drop off

    http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/characte.../Furyio/simple

    *Armoury showing 13% hit, but infact its actually at 15% ingame, dont know why the difference. Either way it should be irrelevant considering we can actually get away with lower hit

    Hi all,

    I am finding my DPS relatively low as Affliction for the first two bosses of HoF .
    First one we got a kill, and second one is just wipe parses.

    I'd love to get a different PoV on this, thanks.

    Edit: I died on the kill, bout mid fight, so that's to discount. After the kill, i got the epic ring, and reforged to the lower haste cap (4198) and then full mastery. I also reduced my hit, but my misses aren't many. Seems DPS dipped despite SimC notin an increase, so i'm wondering if theres anything i missed during the fight.

    My dot uptime seems a bit low, but i am taking this is because we were wiping etc as i don't usually let dots fall off. Unless problems with unforseen strike for exampe

    I could not look up your armory, but biggest thing I notice is that during Lust/hero/tw on your Imperial Viser kill your dps dropped way low for some reason. I am not sure what happened during that period. Did you sacrifice your pet again after you died/ask for re-buff?

    Regem your yellow slots to +320 mastery, reforge your +hit to haste, not as you have it now as haste to mastery.

    Just a few recommendations.

    Hi all,

    My guild is stuck ending it's second week of progression on Elegon without a kill. The last attempt we had on him was the furthest we saw on the fight and then died to berserk. Is there anything I can do better to squeeze out more dps to get a kill?

    This is the last attempt, probably the one I felt I pushed the hardest.
    http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/a...=10381&e=10957

    My armory is in my sig. I am pretty new to lock (played a shammy as main last xpac and RAF granted lvls to my lock to 80 right before MoP hit) so if there's a terrible bad habit I'm doing, please be as harsh about it as possible.
