Tall Order: Criticism for my Raid
I'm asking for a rather large bit of help, if any are willing.
I'm the raid leader of a 10-man raiding group that's had its fair struggles all expansion long. We always seem to hit that "wall" in progression that takes weeks upon weeks to get through, and for Siege, Galakras has been that wall. I've taken a closer look to see what is/isn't happening with our raid and I've kinda hit a wall myself. I know our composition isn't the best - (Tanks: 2 Paladins / Healers: Priest-Monk-Shaman / DPS: Mage(Frost)-DK(Frost)-Hunter(Survival)-2 Priest) - but for the sake of finishing the expansion, I didn't think it would be a problem. Kind of a "working with what we have" situation. But, I've always worried that we had poor DPS, and by that I mean skill in effectively pulling on average what the class/spec/gear is capable of. Though of late, I've been told that a bigger problem is really our class comp, which features some of the poorest and slowest possible DPS specs in the game. I've had to walk many of our raiders through the class rotation guides on Icy Veins to some good success about the time of Heart of Fear raiding, then mandate keeping up with Ask Mr Robot for Reforge/Gem/Enchants to make sure we're at our most effective, but like I said, I'm just not sure anymore where our problems lie. Do I have poor DPSers? Or do I have good players with bad specs?
I have a couple of logs I can share.
- The first is our regular raid composition from a couple weeks back:
- This is one of our more recent go's at Galakras, our current "wall", with a fill-in for our Hunter who wasn't able to make it:
We dropped Thunder King prior to Siege and Heroic Jinrok, which I think means we should be able to handle normal mode at the very least, but of late, I'm starting to wonder. If anyone could share anything they notice, I would appreciate any constructive criticism.
