I need Help with DPS

5 posts in this topic

Hey, I'm just TERRIBLE at DPS'ing but I know the tactics very good, I need some help at getting better at DPS.

Current Rotation:

 

Black Arrow-Explosive-Crow-Arcane

 

So, I'm using Cobra Shot to get Focus but sometimes I get a proc for Explosive, should I cancel the Cobra and go for the Explosive?

Current DPS:22k (Butcher HC) 

Current Ilvl: 660

 

Armory: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/twisting-nether/Malmilero/simple

So, I went HM HC Y-day and there was this hunter http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/shattered-hand/Prehn/simplehe had 649 or so...and he did 20-21k DPS with ZOUNDS of Rares on him...

I need help badly, I'm a terrible hunter xd

Note: I hate Focusing Shot playstyle.

No, you should not cancel cobra shot for DPS purposes.

In a short fight light butcher that evolves around some bursty phases MM will be better than SV most of the times (Also since you can have almost 100% uptime on sniper training)

Also the lack of Multistrike on the available gear atm doesn't favor SV, so on stationary fights with 100% uptime on sniper training MM should yeild better results than SV, but SV shines in almost any other fights with movement.

This is wrong.

 

1) Butcher has no burst phases.

2) Sniper Training uptime is largely irrelevant, SV wins regardless.

3) Just because the stats do not prefer SV, it does not make it the worse spec. This is a broken sort of logic which assumes that a spec's DPS is entirely down to the stats you have present on your gear rather than the inherent balancing of those specs.

4) SV is movement locked as MM is because of Focusing Shot. Even more so, actually, because dropping Sniper Training uptime is a tiny penalty.

      Hey guys! Just want to share my experience as survival hunter so far! I used icy veins giude for long time, assuming that versaility is best stat choice for surv, but after some tests i tried to drop versatility to pump mastery. Well as result i'v raised my dps (874 ilvl) from 235k to 307k on boss dummy and 280k-290k in raid (tested on Odyn, and Emerald nightmare). I'm currently running 29% crit, 25% haste, 14% mastery, 1% versatility. Pumping mastery gave me a huuuuge dmg increase cause basically i always have 2-3 moongose bite on. I tried to switch back to versatility gear since i got a lucky trinket drop (885 agi-haste wq trinket), but i had too many dead times w/o focus and it was a great dps lost!
      Of course in some fights i have to switch in BM or MM just to help our healers cause we have too many melee in guild XD, but i'd like to know if there are some hunters currently using  surv spec in hero/mithycs raid or 8+ mithycs dungeons.
      Here is my armory link just in case you wanna give it a check! http://eu.battle.net/wow/it/character/pozzo-delleternita/Khâyman/advanced
