Moderator note: I've given Balkoth permission to post this, since we are now allowing people to post combat logs in SQSA threads. Although it would obviously be better if the mage in question did his own research.
I'm wondering about an arcane mage named Starstorm: Starstorm @ Greymane - Game - World of Warcraft
I realize that arcane specializes on single target fights with little to no movement, but it seems that even on those fights he should be higher. Specifically, here are three parses I've been looking at for our 10 man raid:
Beth'tilac: World of Logs - Real Time Raid Analysis
Baleroc (3 healed): World of Logs - Real Time Raid Analysis
Baleroc (2 healed): World of Logs - Real Time Raid Analysis
On Beth'tilac he was assigned full time on Beth, meaning he could wail away on her upstairs and prey on targets of opportunity down below, and then just stand still and nuke for phase 2. On Baleroc, it's a single target fight that requires him to move very little (Blink to the shard, take 2 steps away, stand still and nuke for 45+ seconds).
He is a few pieces of gear (like 3-4) behind many of the other raiders, but he's still very middle of the pack to the low end and I'm wondering if he's not playing correctly. I'm also pretty sure his helm, shoulders, gloves, belt, and boots should be 40 Intellect instead of his current hybrid gems, so his damage done isn't the only reason I'm concerned about him.
Edit in response to moderator edit: I already received a very helpful PM yesterday regarding this post. More information would always be nice, but the gist of my question and the main potential problems seemed to be covered pretty well. I'm happy to recognize the person who sent me the PM publicly if they don't mind, but I wasn't sure if they wanted it due to the PM medium.
