Don't link your Armory; it's in your profile just to the left of your post.
I don't know where to turn to look for answers, but last night I had an experience that completely baffles me....
In a normal high movement fight (like most Ulduar fights are these days) without special damage enhancing fight mechanics (such as Hodir) I can normally put out at least 5k DPS and normally sit at #3 on my guilds DPS charts and often somewhere in top 3 on overall damage. Last night I was second to last on my guilds DPS charts at an abyssmal 3500 (the one below me is a potential recruit we're trying out. Not looking good). I'm tearing my hair out trying to figure out why. The only recent gear changes I've made is shifting some stats around adding spellpower, haste and crit at the expense of hit. I dropped my hit down to 237 and being alliance with multiple Draenii in the party, I had heroic presence and I was using my IFF for the additional hit after that (not to mention there was a shadow priest with Misery up).
I don't button mash and take full advantage of my haste soft cap to use my GCD timed Wrath. I was taking advantage of Moonfire to proc the new ilevel 245 idol for extra crit and was toggling back and forth between my eclipses properly. Specifically the fights I did last night were the new ToC fight and I'm focusing on the first 2 bosses where there really isn't a lot of abnormal activity going on that can reduce your dps output (like there is on the third boss). My lag was not bad at any point last night.
Sadly, I didn't gather a WWS report to dig deeper....
My question isn't a look at my gear and what am I doing wrong as much as trying to find out if any other moonkins suddenly experienced something similar or if there's something new I missed that affects how we play.
Hit cap at 237 w/ Draenii in party and IFF always applied.
Haste soft cape surpassed above 401 and Wrath of Air Totem out
Flask of the Frost Wyrm used and Potion of Speed used during first eclipse
Spell rotation I'm using is what it has always been since 3.2 when they decoupled the eclipse procs
Did I just have a bad night or did other people experience a similar sudden drop?
That being said if you want to take a peak and let me know if you see some noob mistake I made, I'm all ears.
Here's my armory if you care to look: The World of Warcraft Armory
Most recent changes were:
Drop Pendant of Focused Energies - Thottbot: World of Warcraft in favor of Evoker's Charm - Thottbot: World of Warcraft
Drop Boots of Hasty Revival - Thottbot: World of Warcraft in favor of Boots of Wintry Endurance - Thottbot: World of Warcraft
Drop Valorous Dreamwalker Trousers - Thottbot: World of Warcraft in favor of Wildstrider Legguards - Thottbot: World of Warcraft <- Admitting this change breaks my 2 piece bonus for T7.5, but I'm prepping for getting my T9 shoulders VERY soon. So close to 45 Emblems of Triumph.
