GF's laptop bugged for DOTs - suggestions?Follow

Figured I'd try here before having the post lost on the O-boards - odd problem - my gal's SP DOTs aren't sticking for multiple mobs when she raids.

She can DOT up as many mobs as she wants solo and is equally proficient in normal and heroics, but put her into a raid and suddenly she's lucky to pull 6k DPS because her DOTs seem to reset whenever she moves from one mob to another?

There's not another SP in the raid so it's not a case of someone else's MS cleaning them.

Anyone ever have this happen or any clue?

That's... odd. The only DoT that should reset is Devouring Plague as you can only have it up on one target. SWP and VT you can put up on as many targets as you want. Is it possibly a hit issue? There's a pretty big jump in how much hit you need between heroics and raids.

Even without multi-dotting though, she should be doing way more than 6k DPS. It sounds like there might be other issues. Do you have a armory or combat logs to link?

Not related to the issue, but I see a few things she could fix with gearing.

First off, gems. Intellect is king, so all red slots need to be +40 Intellect gems. Yellow slots can be filled by a Reckless (Int/Haste) only if the bonus is >= 20 int. Blues can be filled with Purified (Int/Spirit), under the same conditions.

Major slots that need regemming:
Shoulder, Chest, Gloves, Waist, Feet.

The head, legs, and ring are minor issues that can probably wait until she gets upgrades, if she doesn't want to do those right away. Focus on the important gems I listed above.

Second is reforging. She needs to be reforging everything into Haste if she can. If it already has Haste on it, then reforge into Spirit. Finally, if it has Haste and Spirit on it, or if you're already over the cap, then reforge into Mastery/Crit. They're close enough right now for it not to be a big issue which. However, that is rarely ever an issue, so it pretty much becomes "Reforge into Haste first, then Spirit".

She needs to reforge:
Head (Crit->Haste), Neck (Spell Pen->Haste) [In fact, upgrade out of this if possible], Back (Resil->Haste), Chest (Mastery->Haste), Wrist (Crit -> Haste), MH (Spi or Mastery->Haste), Wand (Mastery->Haste), Hands (Mastery->Haste), Waist (Mastery->Haste), Legs (Mastery->Haste), Ring1 (Flowers) (Mastery->Haste), Ring2 (Jeweled) (Mastery->Haste), Both trinkets to Haste.

Basically, I'm not seeing enough Haste. She's actually over the hit cap, so she definitely has room to drop some. The spell hit cap is +17%, any more is overkill and unnecessary. There's a big debate over this, but my personal position is that Haste > Hitcap, as long as you're not vastly under cap. No more than 3% under is fine in my book. For example, here's my priest. I'm sitting at 2.27% under the cap. I'd like a little more, but not too much.

Talents and Glyphs look fine to me.

Make sure she's following the casting priority properly. I think Pigtails or I have outlined this elsewhere. I'll look around, and if not make a new post about it.

So yeah. New gems, new reforges, as much Haste as possible, and casting priority.

I mentioned making some very un PvP friendly changes in there, though. This is assuming that this is for PvE 100%. If she wants to avoid changing the PvP pieces, it won't hurt performance too much.

Um, wow... yeah and I remember us giving you advice on your gf's priest months ago, and it doesn't look like much has been improved. I'm really not trying to be a jerk here, but did you relay our previous advice? Did she follow it? It doesn't really look like it tbh.

I really don't have anything to add from what Fish said though. He nailed it all. My priest is sitting at exactly 16% hit and her dps is fine as well.

Yeah, oops. <_<

Even funnier, I used to play Horde (on Echo Isles, though), but I faction and server transferred so that I could play with a real life friend of mine, who's in the same guild as me.

I declare war--you two shall now meet in TB and spend the entire game exclusively hunting each other. Record it and report back.

Smiley: grin

That's funny Digg. Pigtails does not PvP if she can avoid it. =x I haven't done a single TB fight and I doubt I ever will.
