Been reading EJ for a long time but never posted before. I recently switched to destruction and I am wondering about the damage I do in comparisson to what I am supposed/expected to do at my level of gear "in real gaming".. as the simcraft numbers never seem to apply to or reflect my situation.. simcraft numbers are always way higher than I can bring even when using similar gear as in the sim. I did my first 25 ulduar raid yesterday as destro and we did XT and Kologarn.
Why I am wondering is becuase I used to be affliction for a long time and topped about 4500 dps in your average tank n spank fight which is nowhere near the 7k here and there I hear people do.
As destro I noticed a clear boost, actually beating our mages most of the times which is something i didnt do before, but I would like to get some input from others about their average dps/dps peaks on these two bosses. (also on Razorscale and Ignis if that is possible even though I dont have any numbers of my own on those yet)
I had alot of lag during this raid for some reason, probably affected my dps, latency peaked as high as 900 even though it was around 250 when my net worked as intended (normal latency around 100-150)
(dont have any wws on these fights Im afraid)
On XT I did on average of around 5100-5300 dps, including some aoe on bots, reaching as high as 6k during heroism on heart phase.
On kologarn I had some massive DC issues so I really just got one decent try there without lag/dc issues and then I was around 4.9k-5k with nuking arm/boss, didn't do any aoe becuase our 5 mages handled that alone.
rotation was something like CoD - immo - CB - CF - In ---> priority, with the occational corruption while running.
so basically what I am wondering, are these numbers something I could be pleased with considering my gear, no 2pt8 etc or is it still on the low end?
