Leeroyo

New to demon hunter and my dps is BLEEEEH

6 posts in this topic

Hi guys!

My name is Leeroyo! from Frostmourne and I'm new to the demon hunter class after taking a expansion off, going from Rogue to DH seems to be a difficult transition because I wanted to mobility trade off (but it feels like Rogue are still way more mobile haha)

Anyway my spec with a 835 Item level:
Fel Mastery - 99
Prepared -100
Bloodlet - 102
Soul Rending - 102
Momentum - 106
Master of the Glaive - 108
Fel Barrage - 110

I'm going for the stats recommend by icy veins for Havoc demon hunters. However, this is where all the list of questions come.

Is this spec the optimal spec to maximise damage? 
I was thinking of using demon blades just so I don't have to spam demon bite as much but this makes it a little more reactive then using demon bite.

What is the dps rotation for demon hunters for single target dps? I've been trying to follow to recommended by icy veins on DH page.


What is the Multiple target dps rotation for demon hunters? This one I'm not as worried about as I hit 600k dps normal on 3 targets.

When I throw my glaive with bloodlet, do I need to wait till it stops ticking to refresh it? will I lose dps? 

Momentum...I understand you get the buff and you cast all you abilities to get the maximum dps but is there anyway to have more constant dps? or is Momentum just outweighs any use of nemesis?

Cheers guys!

Hopefully someone can help.  :S

Personally I have found the build they recommend and its reliance on demon blades to be horrible for DPS. Slowly waiting for your auto-attacks to build fury, using demon blades, while fighting a raid boss...rather than being able to hit demon bite and actively gather fury means less fury, which means less Chaos Strike or Annihilation which means less over all DPS. 

After raiding last week and this week, and using warcraft logs to compare my DPS and build (based off the Icy Veins recommendation) versus other DH's at my same iLevel, Im respeccing today back to demon bites.

Hi,

My overall gear score is at 857 at the moment. I followed the Stat priority on Icy veins (Agi>Crit>Vers>Haste>Mastery) as good as possibly. My current stats are 49,5% crit, 7% Vers, 4% Haste, 14% Mastery.

I also followed the spec recommended and played around a bit. Currently I am using:

Fel Mastery

Prepared

Bloodlet

Soul Rendering

Momentum

Master of the Glaive

Chaos Blades

I am doing decent AoE damage but when it comes to single target, my dps is around 180k - 190k which just sucks for my ilvl.

This is how I use my abilities:

"Fel Rush" in, use "Fury of the Ilidary" and "Throw Glaive" then "Vengeful Retreat" out and while in the air use second charge of "Throw Glaive". I build up Fury with "Demon Bite" then pop "Metamorphosis" and "Chaos Blades". Now I use up my fury by using "Annihilation". I use a combo of  "Fel Rush" and/or "Vengeful Retreat" in sync with "Throw Glaive" whenever possible and while on the mob I use "Demon Bite" + "Annihilation/Chaos Strike".

What am I missing here? I think I must be doing something fundamentally wrong.

Cheers for helping me out!

Im having the same problem Deathwing. According to our raid logs Im at 9% ranking of all Demon Hunters at my same iLevel. And Im pretty tight on getting the rotation down.

The problem with Momentum build is that is really dependant on how you dominate it, i believe. If you cant use it all the time it requires you wont see your dps going high... i have the same issue and now im going with nemesis build, more static, but at 863 ilvl get 220k dps is bad....

      About us:
      Converge has been around since WoW Vanilla and has been raiding together since Molten Core; most of our members have been playing together for years. In its older days, when most of us where young, we were more raid focused and demanded a lot from our members. Over the years we had to adjust our playtime and priorities with a growing list of RL responsibilities and are now, for all intents and purposes, a semi-casual raiding guild.
      At this point in time we are trying to round out our roster and eventually attempt Mythic raids once we feel comfortable with our raid composition.
      Raid Times: 8:00 PM – 12:00 AM Eastern Time – Monday/Tuesday.
      Recruitment: Currently we are only accepting Ranged DPS / Heals
      Legion Progression:
      [EN]    7/7 Normal - 7/7 Heroic
      [ToV]  3/3 Normal - 3/3 Heroic
      [NH] 8/10 Normal - 0/10 Heroic

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 8/10N NH 4/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, Rogue, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review, make a character on our realm and inbox me, or hit me up on real ID (violentravi#1826).  Alternatively, if you are old school, please apply via our website:  http://www.adelante-guild.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo
