Need In depth help with my Survival Hunter

5 posts in this topic

Hello everybody :)

I've being playing with my survival hunter for a while now and I'm always pushing over 110k at least without burst.

Thing is, i know theres more i can push my hunter to so that i can do a lot more damage than I can atm. The one new thing that i started is tracking my procs and trying to send out my dots like serpent sting when those procs are active. I do receive an increase in dps by about 15k but i know i can do more.

Which leads to my question. Is there any way in which You guys/girls can help me do this or anybody you can direct me to? I am willing to go as advance as i possibly can to try achieve this as well.

Heres a link to my character:

PS. My hit cap is a little high which is probably causing a problem with my dps but I'm stuck with it until i get new legs from flex or normals :(

Your hit's indeed a little high, but that's mainly a function of getting an unlucky combo of gear. In some cases, you might be able to gem agility instead of expertise, and reforge to expertise to compensate. Might give you a minor dps boost.


Furthermore, when you're saying "without burst", what exactly do you mean? Over the course of a 5-8 minute fight? Without using CD's? Or are the numbers you mention from dummy testing? It's hard for us to judge where you can improve without knowing how you play, so the best next step might be to show us some logs. If you don't have any, go into an LFR or Flex, and upload to WoL afterwards. 


Good luck

Galakras would probably not be ideal as a baseline measurement because of the heavy aoe, and the difference your role makes (tower duty or not). Something like Sha of Pride would give an easier read on your single-target rotation. However, feel free to include any fights you want specific advice on.


As for logging, I usually use Loggerhead to make it easier. Then register a worldoflogs account and follow their instructions. You could also upload a 5 min Raider's Training dummy log to test. If you need specific help with this part, just send me a pm.

My suggestions: replace your 2 jagged wild jades and your perfect glinting roguestones to pure agility gems. You are over hit cap and agi gives 2 points of crit.


An addon like JSHB hunter bar will help you keep track of cd's, duration, and focus. Make sure you keep black arrow up every time it is off cd. When lock and load procs keep applying explosive shot as the dot itself will continue to stack in damage. You no longer have to weave arcane shots in between your lock and load explosive shots.


Also, try to get your hands on an Assurance of Consequence. It lowers the cd of Black Arrow, Rapid Fire, and Stampede which makes it a huge dps increase.

      I didn't see this in patch notes but it seems like mastery is giving procs of mongoose bite from pet attacks now? Once I pop aspect it seems like I am getting stack after stack of mongoose. Watch the vid, I hit 699k dps about 30 sec or so into my opening on mythic nythendra :

      This is a link to my armoury:
      These are the logs of my hc progress (sadly only nyth) where i greatly under performed:
      My rotation revolves around fist weaving and using as much thunder focus brews as i can, getting resets on Rising Sun Kick. My main healing spells are the 2 HOTs Enveloping mists and renewing mists, and i use my cooldowns when i see fit.
      As i realised though, i am not really performing well and i would really appreciate someone with a lot more experience than myself to help me. All help is welcome, i just want to get better!
