Major DPS Drop since Legion

8 posts in this topic

My first post here, and I hate it being one of complaint but I don't know where else to turn for advice right now, and that's what I am looking for, advice, I'm not just whining ;).

I'm an experienced BM and MM hunter pre-legion. My dps was running on average 50K as per recount. I went with the talents suggested here and am using the stat rotation but my MM dps has dropped to like 25K, 

I tried running on my BM and while I did experience a bit of a DPS drop, I think I can contribute most of it to my being slower and not "automatically" going to the proper next spell, which I was so used to doing that I could do it almost on autopilot without even thinking. I believe once I practice that will be fine.

However, such a drop really is killing me on MM and I always preferred to run MM when in raids so I don't have my pet get all dumb and cause trouble. 

Do you have any ideas what I maybe doing wrong? Is there something I could have missed?

DPS numbers for everyone are much lower than what they were before the patch.  It does come as a bit of a shock, but Hunters are still a very strong DPS class.  The new rotations will take a bit of getting used to, so don't fret too much.

I'm pushing 60K+ with pvp gear on my hunter.

 

The only way I see you having a Dps lose is probably rotation issues; if you have 4pc you might want to try waiting a second after each focus usage to save on focus. If you don't have 4pc then it might be haste issue. currently MM hunters have focus management issues resulting in downtime so figuring out a rotation that give you the lease downtime but also high enough dmg is a must. 

 

Currently I don't have 2/4pc and I go Barrage (opener), sidewinder, aim shot x2, marked shot, sidewinder, aim shot, with barrage on CD (can save for Aoe phase if it's a few seconds).

 

with 4pc i'd imagine it'll be something along the lines of, Barrage (opener and on CD), Marked shot (for rapid fire proc's), aimed shot x3 ( with some delay) sidewinder, repeat. 

The trick would be the delay between aimed shot to get x3 with not running out of vulnerability de-buff and focus, but you should be able to easily pull 60K+ doing something like that.

I had a DPS drop just like everyone but shawnyzz.  I found that I do far more damage with BM than MM, which is the opposite of damage before 7.0.3.

Recount indicates this is pretty much an across the board drop in dps, across all classes.

Remeber,we don't have all of our skills yet. That probably plays a big part.

I don't agree at all.  I've been playing MM hunter all through this X-Pac and I actually saw an increase in my DPS since Legion patch. My hunter is sitting in 732iL gear with maxes ring and pre patch I was doing around 75kDPS on average.  Since patch I'm now pulling around 80-90kDPS on average sometimes hitting up to 110k DPS and on large mobs in HFC I can hit 360k up to even 600k DPS.  Check your rotation and for sure check your start priority since that did change but even with the stat change I have my starts for pre patch and I'm hitting those DPS levels. I don't think it's an issue with the patch changes, you have something set up wrong or you're doing something wrong.

I don't think it's an issue with the patch changes, you have something set up wrong or you're doing something wrong.  

Well, here's the thing:  I went from having 2 bosses where I was sub-110k dps (HFA and IR, never got a good parse on IR b/c guild rarely did full clears, and lol HFA) before the pre-patch to having 3 bosses where I broke 100k at all (Xhul, Tyrant, and Archimonde), 4 if you count my one >100k parse on Zakuun as BM.  This is at 740+ ilvl.  Sure on trash packs MM's dps went up through the roof, we passively cleave everything down without sacrificing anything for ST damage, but overall, yes, numbers went down quite a lot.

If you want proof:
Before Pre-patch

Post Pre-patch (make sure you're not just viewing a single spec).

      Raid Times:
      Our raid nights are Tuesday/Thursday from 8-12pm eastern.

      We're looking for people wanting to have fun while raiding and downing content. - No stress.
      We are looking for ranged and melee DPS for Mythic Progression.
      Also we run Mythic + all week and have several groups downing 11's and 12's. We hope to get up to 15 soon! 
      Currently looking for:
      Tanks: No demand
      Melee DPS: Low demand (Warrior, Havoc, Windwalker, or anyone exceptional)

      Healers: No demand
      We're at 19 members looking to get a few more to sit around 20-23. New members should be ilevel 860+ but that's not firm.

      About Our Current Members:
      Most have extensive raiding backgrounds, and some come from previous hardcore raiding guilds. We're looking for a casual environment for less stressful and more fun raiding.

      Reliable - At least 80% attendance

      Attitude - Don't be a jerk, not just to guildies, but to everyone.

      Who we are
      <Hollow> is a semi-hardcore guild created by a group of friends, experienced players, that raided HC together in WOTLK. We reunited and transfered to the same realm to create a guild, or more accurately, a home. We keep a very friendly environment in and out of raids, oftenly joining discord to chat even if we aren't doing anything. Guild activities include but are not limited to mythic dungeons, mythic + and raiding.
      Our goals
      Our current progress is 7/7HC and 3/3N. Our goal is to form a better composed raid team and down ToV HC. During which we want to get everyone experienced and geared for mythics and next content. Mythic raiding is also in our plans once we get the right group for it.
      What we are looking for
      We are currently planning to expand and size up our raid team to progress ToV HC and in the not too distant future, Mythic raiding. We are strongly prioritizing priests of any spec, and healers are highly considered in general.
      RDPS: Most wanted all (Spriest); MDPS: Also welcome; HEAL: Need one or two (dont have monk, Dpriest); TANK: Main tank spots filled, still we could use one extra with DPS spec. Less geared people are also welcomed. 
      We also welcome social players as it can help our guild expand even further in other aspects of the game.
      Our raiding schedule
      Our current raiding schedule is 3 raids a week for 3 hours:
      Wednesday 8pm to 11pm server time - ToV Heroic Sunday 8pm to 11pm server time - EN Heroic Tuesday 8pm server time - ToV Normal & EN Normal The guild is using DKP system
      NOTE: We have added a catch up system for new recruits. When you get past the trial phase and join the ranks as an official member of our guild, you also earn 200 dkp as bonus. If thats not enough we will consider more options. We wont leave anyone behind no matter how new while at the same time, drawing a line for our core, active raiders.
      Thank you for taking your time reading through this post. If you have any further questions or if you are interested in joining us, feel free to contact us in game on Solidz, Hotbez or add us on BNET at Solidus#2642, bez#21193.

      Hello, so I started playing DK at the launch of legion, and have enjoyed it so far. I was initially unholy but then changed to frost recently, and am enjoying both specs except for one thing, namely my performance. So there are three frost DK's in my raid and lately the other two are always towards the top of the meter while I'm towards the bottom. There is no large gear difference (I think they both have a couple ilvls on me, but I have the legendary belt), so I was wondering what I was doing wrong. Upon looking at logs I found they both casted significantly more spells than me on all fronts (FS, obliterate, etc.). I also noticed that I need to keep icy talons up more, but can someone tell me why I'm casting so many fewer spells than them (there is no large haste difference, the armory has us all at 30something% haste, even though one of them (Hungerghost) and I only have 20something, and I'm sure the same applies to the other DK), or if there is some other problem, then what is it and how can I fix it? Thanks.

      About
      Our goal is to have an active community during the week and successful progression during the weekends while maintaining a casual atmosphere. We started out the expansion as a bunch of players looking for something to do in our spare time and, after a hefty purge, have settled on doing more with that time.
      Raids (Server)
      Thursday 8pm - 11pm
      Friday 9pm - 1am
      Saturday 9pm - 1am
      Status (Pre-Purge. Expect More.)
      6/7 Heroic EN
      2/3 Normal ToV
      Misc
      Loot: Individual until we settle on a core roster
      Voice: Discord
      Recruitment
      At the moment we're in need of Druid/Sham/Pally/Priest heals as well as all DPS classes. Higher item level is of course better but anything above 850 to start out is fine.

      So,
      Which trinket should I be using (obviously arms warriors are not concerned with iLvl because Mastery is desired over strength.
      I have the 820 iLvl trinket from a timewarped dungeon and that with heroism, Battle Cry, Potion, trinket use, could provide an extreme amount of dps burst which is also on a 1.5m CD. It seems like an obvious choice but I wanted to hear any thoughts or opinions that people have since I'll be losing 500+ static mastery. Also, the use effect gives around 20-24% increased damage during colossus smash. 
      Thoughts?...
