How much dps do you think a 560 ilvl moonkin with a normal weapon, and no purified bindings of immerseus should be doing on a "Patchwerk" type fight, going to use heroic nazgrim as an example (Not exactly patchwerk, with some adds and stuff)
I feel like I'm doing less then I should, I see videos of moonkins doing like 150k more then me, they have like 15 ilvls on me but damn, still. Does purified bindings matter that much? I'm using regular black blood still+heroic Toxic totem.
Signatures are for squares! Oh wait...
I am usually within 10% one way or the other of simcraft, usually extremely close or just under. I have to move a lot, and use tranq on pretty much every fight so I think that is pretty much why. Its just I see videos/logs of people just blowing my dps out of the water, I know I am "Undergeared" (comparetively) but man its like a 150k+ difference. I find it hard to believe that 15-20 ilvls could be THAT much lol..
My entire group is pretty undergeared, highest ilvl is ~567 I think, so our kill times are slightly long.

There's something I haven't found an answer for yet. With NG+heroism+meta gem, Starfire has a 1 second cast time. It hits harder than Starsurge as well, by a large margin (in my gear).
Would it be better to ignore SS during NG+hero+meta gem, if I don't have to move of course?
Also, anyone else seeing this?
And SS crit up the duration of both moonfire and sunfire

So for me the reason i am doing shit damage after reading the thread is i am emphasising too much on starsurge procs in my rotation as i was wrongly under the impression that this was where the damage was. Instead i should have a much better saturation of eclipsed nature's grace dots per eclipse to maximise my dot damage ultimately taking it above the damage of my starsurge.
In addition one question i have is. If there are just the three main bosses up on Protectors, would you bother applying both sets of dots to all three or just both dots to primary target and eclipsed dots to the other two.
What i have always struggled with is what is the ultimate dotting amount you should be doing, i.e. when should you/should you not apply the non eclipsed dot based on how many targets there are.
This together with a lack of focus on maximum eclipsed dots during nature's grace i think is ultimately my failing but i may also be casting non eclipsed dots when perhaps i shouldn't be. For me it's a balance in having enough dots up to cause enough procs for starsurge to take me to the next eclipse cleanly.
You can see from my log though that the nature's grace is not consistent in its uptime and therefore, i am making mistakes here and it is costly. I know for example in this log i only used one set of 3 minute cooldowns but that's not the bit i'm worried about as that was just a retarded mistake, its the way i'm applying dots and using starsurges that i'm concerned with. I also didn't know it was best to focus on the despair adds in bubble phase i had just been doing the two outside and the bosses as that is what you are supposed to do typically.
Here is a better log with higher uptime on nature's grace but moonfire and sunfire are still suffering against starsurge.
Depends on how long you gonna be out of an eclipse = How far on the bar and if there is gonna be any other factors other than casting that will delay it e.g movement, cc. Also if you can A.Communion or not.
Balance is full of judgement calls and it's why most of us love it
Switched to boomkin as my main from my mage for the rest of this tier and WoD. I just got the 4-set and at 17.7k crit. Is it advisable to drop my crit to dump some into mastery or keep it as is? Obviously I will gain more as my gear is upgraded completely. I just didn't know how the 4-set played into our crit value. Any help is much appreciated.
Currently i have 15381 Crit and 12011 mastery unbuffed. This seems to work well.
