MM rotation question

3 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Using the recommended talents but specifically Sidewinders in this case, I know with legion changes the new MM rotation will have downtime, due to being focus starved. My question is with this part of the guide regarding Sidewinders. "You should also keep it from ever reaching 2 charges, and you should be prepared to use it without Marking Targets active to keep this from happening. You should also not generally cast it until you have 60 focus.",  Assuming the previous is still correct, does this mean that we should not cast it until we have at least 60 focus(and less then 80 to prevent capping) to ensure we can get off maximum aimed shots during the vulnerable window, or at most 60 focus?

Secondary question, do we also prioritize barrage over aimed shot during the vulnerable window, after a Marking Target Sidewinder, for a single target situation. (Barrage would obviously come way ahead in a multi-target situation).

1) Use Sidewinders when you have less than 60 focus in this situation.

2) Barrage > Vulnerable-buffed Aimed Shot, always.  However, do recognize when to save barrage for AoE.

What about Barrage vs Vulnerable-buffed Marked Shot? Should one to a) cast Barrage, interrupt it, cast Marked Shot, or b) cast Marked Shot (thus delaying Barrage), then cast Barrage?

      now ive tried diffrent ways of doing my rotation but i still cant seem to "hold it up" i am high up at start...til like 30-60sec into the fight then i start falling behind:(

      So iam willing to give out 1 token to whom ever can give me a reasonable, understandable solution that works for me
      (i know i didnt optimize my trueshot, prepots etc etc) But the problem is after trueshot and my troll racial is "over" i start falling:(
      this is what i wanna figure out, ive tried to do Aimed and then barrage/windburst etc but i seem to starve on focus, ive tried the 2aimed then some cd's but seems i fall behind on Aimedshot dmg then:(

      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/xZf9NW1KV6nyLgXQ#fight=30&type=damage-done&source=153          <----Log of the actuall kill
      here i got run over, but still my numbers are abysmal  (7% pref(

      here is the same rotation but a wipe  (29% pref)
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/xZf9NW1KV6nyLgXQ#fight=28&type=damage-done&source=153 
       
      another wipe, same rotation but only 9% pref
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/xZf9NW1KV6nyLgXQ#fight=27&type=damage-done&source=153 

      So even with the same rotation (atleast i think and feel like i do the same) i can go from 7% pref to 29% pref, i know alot of dmg is RNG but i cant be THAT Unlucky
      id say my avg preformance is about 10% so iam not unlucky iam sucky:(
      but i need to understand what i need to work on:( rotation i know...but is it as simple as to get the azortian down to the perfection?
      cause ive seen other hunters do my "get as many aimedshot as possible into vuln phase" do like 98% pref...but when i do it i fall down to 9.8:)

      tnx for any input and help

      and ill be more then willing to hand out a token for a guide/suggestion that actually works for me

      Hey everyone. I'm worried that my time invested in BM is for not. However, with the changes coming to MM, my thoughts are that BM may still be a viable raiding spec. I enjoy BM because of its freedom of movement.  A dead hunter does no damage, and that my motto. With that being said, I want to be sure I'm maximising my damage output. I'm currently waiting on some drops, namely trinkets, which I've been incredibly unlucky with, but other than that, I'm geming for mastery, and enchanting agi where needed. Currently, in raids, with flasks and potions, I've been ranging in dps from about 265-310, depending on the fight.  Given my gear, I feel like I should be doing more. I'm unsure if I'm hitting a ceiling with BM, or if it is something I'm doing wrong. I've been following the standard rotation posted on icy-veins, and even under normalized conditions on training dummies (no flasks etc...), under 2-3 min rotations, I've been peaking at around 270k dps. Any thoughts on this?

      Hello!
      I've been playing a bunch of mage recently to eventually find myself at 850 ilevel (down to 849 for stat purpose, I swapped an item for more haste and crit instead of mastery). However, since my last raid (yesterday), I feel like I might not be pulling enough damage for my ilevel so I'm looking for advices concerning the spec, rotation or stats. Further down, you're going to find my armory profile but I want to say it right here and now : I am aware that I'm overflowing with Mastery and I am currently working towards lowering that by a lot (if only gear would drop D:).
       
      While we're here, I also wanted to hear about your thoughts on specs. I just did a Maw Mythic +4 and some people didn't seem to be happy when they saw that I was frost and told me they should've known before because of some AoE issue and damage in general. Could it be that Frost isn't as good as Simulationcraft says it is ? I roughly hit the 200k DPS mark and I find myself pretty low compared to some people. Maybe Fire is better? Or even Arcane (even though I find it disgusting...). What do y'all think?
       
      Cheers!

      Hello!
      i struggle with Markedshot procs:( in general, so i know something is wrong with my rotation(cant be that unlucky)

      at start of a fight iam allways top 3...but then i fall like a rock in water:(
      so iam wondering if you can actually do too many aimedshot, wich will prevent you from getting proccs more often?
      i actually get 3 AiS into a 5sec vuln...

      compared to other hunters in my guild iam up to par when it comes to AiS but on barrage and marked iam way behind:(
      i know i gotta be better at Barrage use, but the markedshot proccs really bug me:( I just cant seem to get em

      any suggestions?
