Topic Crimsin - Help Me Not Suck!
Edited by Crimsin on 10/8/12 3:19 PM (PDT)
Hey all! I will be in for my first Raid in a long time. I'm looking for any critiques on my gear or item setup. Can I do anything better? Am I missing something important or do I have something wrong equiped? Please pick me apart.
As a frame of reference, I average about 65 - 70k on 5 man boss fights. These fights usually last less than three minutes though. Not sure if this is normal for the rest of the shaman community.

Bracers enchant, Engineering Tinker. Get that last 1% hit or at least under 0.10% or above to a max of 0.5%. Ask Mr. Robot would be helpful if you do not wish to spend gold testing that out yourself, but seeing those BoEs.. I doubt financial problems is even relevant to you.
Your DPS 65k-70k average is slightly low, if you account for the dungeon damage buff. Need to work on your rotation a little better.
Other than that.. Unequip your Relic of Yu'lon and give it to me!
Get your hit as close to 15% as you can. Even a 1% chance to miss will rear it's ugly head at the worst times.
I would say that >3 minute boss fights in 5 mans are not the best source for overall performance. Try on a training dummy and get your priority system as tight as you can.
Go for at least 6:30. That's enough to use your primary CDs at least twice. (pending you keep the fire ele glyph)

Thanks guys very much for the input!
I thought I was hit capped though? I'm Dreani; don't they get the 1% buff? With that added in, I'm snugly sitting at .05% over cap. Or did blizzard change something and I'm being stupid?
Here's my WoL parse on the first boss from tonight in a PUG. I think I could've done better. Really messed up and attacked one of the 90% dmg reduced bosses during Ascendance for about 5s. I estimate I lost about 2k dps. :(

I fumbled that obvious realization. My bad.
Looking at your log, the only thing I notice is overall up-time of Searing totem. It seems a bit low in comparison to the percent of up-time of your fire ele.
I can't say how much you had to move in total, but it looks like searing had dropped off a couple times?

Hit cap displays in armory so if you have 14.05% on the armory you have 14.05%, not 15.05%.
They changed that awhile ago :<
Edit: Actually you have 4776 hit rating, and I have 5101 which gives you 15%...some stuff has recently stopped showing up on the armory like engineering gloves so it looks like it's back to not displaying.
