View Full Version : DPS is lacking, how do I raise it?

My armory The World of Warcraft Armory (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Runetotem&n=Stavvie)
We have just started doing 25 Naxx and I 'thought' I was pretty well geared. My best DPS was 1100. How can i get it up to 2k or higher like some people have posted here? I know I HAVE tp replace mycrappy sword, but the upgrades never seem to want to drop. Any help is appreciated.

Don't gem fore avoidance, get rid of those defense, dodge, etc gems and replace with expertise, expertise/stam

Change to the 15/5/51 spec, deep wounds is your friend
Talent Calculator - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=LAM00fZhbZMItrx0zidIzsGo)

Practice correct prioritization & rotation

EDIT: Your expertise is only 10, soft cap is 26 and hard cap is 57. Working on that and changing your spec should provide a nice boost if you have a good rotation

All of those were good points, but in particular respec to 15/5/51 and get your expertise up. Especially in Naxx10/heroic gear expertise is hard to come by, so on your agro set gem and enchant a bit if you have to.

Getting your expertise up to 26 and respeccing should go a long ways to fixing your threat issue.

Ok I respecced and regemmed and got my Exp. up to 26 but my dps is still around 800-900. Checked it through OS25 and VOA25, still low. I'm still trying to get a better sword, but so far no drops.
What else can I do?

Armory (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Runetotem&n=Stavvie) I switch between swords also, but not really any difference.

DPS is largely affected by the fight, looking at OS and VoA is not a good example because depending on your role etc you may be fighting the 1 drake that takes no damage = your dps goes to crap and with VoA you are either an OT with no rage or you are the MT who gets grabbed and can't attack for a while each time so again DPS gets f'ed.
