I'm not good at evaluating these logs, but your dps does appear low. Your team has slightly less gear than us, but not enourmasly so.So, heroic Ashvane.
The frustrating thing is that we've got no real benchmark as to *where* we're failing. We can just about scrape through the first shield and nuke phase, and maybe get to about the last 10% of the second shield. The nuke phase (sans heroism) is only burning through maybe 30% of her health, so we're currently in line with four nuke phases - and that's one thing that people generally suggest just isn't realistic to make it through a fourth coral-spawning phase.
But independent of that, the enrage timer is also a concern; we generally wipe on a good go about five minutes into the fight, and if DBM is trustworthy that's about halfway to enrage; we're simply not going to down her. Our guild's DPS generally isn't brilliant, but even the best players aren't really troubling the %age comparisons in the logs right now.
On top of that, the healers feel incredibly overwhelmed with the healing requirements, imagining that they're needing cooldowns for all bar the first Rippling Waves phases
It feels like we're doing something fundamentally wrong which is overstressing the heal requirements and hindering the DPS, and I've absolutely no idea what it is. When we look at the logs, our healers appear to be massively overperforming relative to their gear, and comparably, many of our DPS appear to be massively underperforming.
I've been trying to do log comparisons, but it looks like everything that's showing up when I do a search for comparable gearsets are Mythic-capable raids who are good enough to do huge numbers in gearsets comparable to ours, which isn't helpful for direct comparisons (when I tried to break the numbers down such that I could isolate just the first phase 1 and compare that, the only guild I stumbled on that had a phase 1 of similar length... did so because they accidentally let a bubble or two through which artificially extended the phase!)
Here's our best go. Anyone got any insight they can offer?
Here is one of our Heroic Ashvane kills for comparison:
We have at least 6 people over 30k and aim to get her down in the second burn phase. We don't even bother to break the corals in the second burn phase since we know she will die anyway.
I noticed that your peak dps comes at pull rather than a burn phase, when are you blowing heroism / bloodlust?
Hope you resolve your problems.
