SV deeps suggestions?

10 posts in this topic



I'd like to ask your help on improving my dps. Feels I should do better, but I can't find what I'm missing...  I've been very lucky with drops, but especially on multitarget fights my fellow guild hunter does better job. I blame that on my.. eh, just messing things and dots up. cool.png


But to get basics right, I'd like you to rate my performance on simple fight with Malkoroth.


I'm having good uptime on BA 98,4% and SS ok, 94,5% (that is one to improve), gemming and reforging goes according to askmrrobot. I couldn't find stampede on logs, but did use it and did prepot...


Any feedback is appreciated.

Hey work plus raid night didn't give me a lot of time to analyze your logs yesterday but today is a snow day so I'll look things over and get back to you

Nothing to say related to your rotation or your stats, looks good to me. One suggestion: If possible, drop skinning for another profession: Engineering is usually a very strong choice to improve DPS (agility boost every min + improved mobility) and it is for sure the funniest and coolest profession (who haven't dream of having a deadly explosive sheep).

The only thing I noticed is slightly low serpent sting uptime (94.5%) probably fell off and was refreshed. The other thing is that at one point you have 10 seconds between explosive shots, yet two arcane shots were used. Other than that it looks great, so that's like a 1% dps loss at most.

1 thing I know that hurts SS uptime is 4 set proccing 6+ explosive shots in a row... I can't say if that is bad or good thing cool.png Should I refresh SS (BA i will, moar procs!) during these procs, or try to use procs asap?? And during these procs I often tend to get focus capped, that and refreshing SS might have caused 10 secs between explosive shots...


Gotta try farm some ores with alt and try engineering, I do feel bit envy towards mates jumping off a cliff with glider and running past me with rocket boots! It has seemed interesting prof for a while. Skinning does provide +480 crit though...


It's been said several times everywhere, but I was still suspicious about spore bat doing same dmg with hyena / ravager, that just is unnatural imo...


Thanks for feedback. Got HC Assurance last night, I'm off to try it out biggrin.png

Since I'm not a mainspec hunter I could be wrong, but wouldn't coming out of Explosive burst mean you can just serpent blackarrow arcane arcane cobra explosive? I don't know all the tips and tricks that change the rotation, but I just don't understand why explosive would ever be a 10s wait

My post didnt post? :( Silly tablet >.<


But yes you are doing things right. On that particular fight the other hunter was BM, and your lock and load procs didn't last very long. L&L is such a big dps burst, especially if you are lucky and get a long proc.


SInce getting the 4 piece I too have noticed that I could get unlucky and have SS fall off with a long proc. I try to refresh SS when the timer gets 10-8 seconds left either by cobra shot or SS. If it happens to fall off every once in a while during a L&L proc I wouldn't stress over it. Explosive shot is going to do way more damage then SS would on a single target fight.

A week has passed, and another go at Malkoroth.


A whopping 40k DPS gain! cool.png


Basicly I moved explosive shot on top (+few nothces) of my priority list, and stopped stressing about serpent sting & black arrow or capping focus while lock'n load. SS stayed on same uptime, BA dropped to 96,2%. Gearwise I got lucky and replaced normal Assurance with HC one and took engineering instead skinning smile.png  (yeah, it is lovely +2k agility for 10 s / min! I thought it was haste on gloves on use...)  


I'm quite happy with it now, thanks for pointers smile.png

      Raiding guild looking for more raiders! We have a particular need of ranged DPS and a healer or two. Melee DPS are more than welcome if they have a tank off-specc. That helps with Mythic+ runs, if we have several tanks and groups going at the same time.

      Progression: 7/7N, 1/7H

      Raid Schedule: 20:00 Saturday and Sunday Server Time

      Communication: Discord Channel

      Interest: Message me on (Semifreddo#2224), or respond to this post with what class and specc you play.

      Cleared Heroic and Normal Emerald Nightmare in the first week of it's release.
      Classes Needed:
      Resto Shaman
      Resto Druid
      Balance Druid
      Shadow Priest
      Always looking for exceptional DPS of any class.

      About Us: 
      We are a guild, made up of former members of <Red Shift> and <Casually Addicted>, on Bleeding Hollow (PvP Server on a Chicago Datacenter) that have a common goal and will do what is necessary to achieve it. We are Shifty Casuals.
      We are a group of professional adults, who believe success in raiding doesn't correlate to number in days/hours you spend raiding. We are starting a fresh page within our guild history and sticking to a 3 day a week raid schedule.
      We don't tolerate elitism, bigotry, misogyny or any of the like. We enjoy our calm, adult environment and have no qualms with protecting it.
      We do loot council which is fair and distributes loot for the progression of the raid as a whole and not an individual player. No favoritism, no loot drama.
      We have our sights set on top 100 US for Legion and are looking for like-minded individuals to join our ranks.

      Raid Days and Times (All times in EST as that is our server time):
      · Tuesday 8:45pm-11:45pm
      · Wednesday 8:45pm-11:45pm
      · Thursday 8:45pm-11:45pm

      Who We Want:
      Since we are reforming and building for the expansion now is a great time to get in on the ground floor and clear content with us, while prepping for the new expansion. These are some key traits that we are looking for:
      · Someone who understands that 3 nights a week raiding means that you need to bring your A-game each and every night. Attendance is expected to be near 100%. By committing to raid, you are committing yourself to our raiding schedule.
      · The ability to perform under pressure. We only recruit impressive players, and spots are always competitive.
      · Extensive class knowledge of your class. (IE: Alpha/beta testing, keeping up with theorycrafting, properly gemmed/enchanted, always be up to date on the intricacies of your class (not solely your spec(s)) and on the utility of the entire raid group.)
      · A computer that can handle 20-30 man raiding and the ability to communicate via VOIP when needed. You must have a working headset and mic, and you must be prepared to use them. We will not read chat during boss fights. Inability to give a vocal response will not be tolerated as it directly hinders progression.
      · Tough skin. We're always looking to improve ourselves as should you. Constructive criticism is encouraged, but flaming and insulting is not tolerated whatsoever.

      If you have what it takes to be a part of this great team and community, feel free to apply at our website  If you have questions about the application process, contact any of the officers for additional information.
