Surv or BM for CM's, and what should my stat prio be.

3 posts in this topic

So, I'm starting to take a look at CM's for the first time in WoD and I'm considering doing them on my hunter. 

I sold CM carries for in game gold for about six months, doing 15ish runs a week so I am well aware that a regular raiding setup may not cut it. Due to CM's favoring AoE builds a little more than single target ones.

 

I'm tossing up between playing Lone Wolf Surv, or BM. I know both have amazing AoE, but I'm just not sure what will come out on top..

 

As far as stat priority goes, I feel like Multi>Mast>Crit>Vers>Haste would be the best option for Surv due to the need for high AoE damage. I'm not a very experienced hunter due to maining my shaman in MoP so I was wondering if any of the high end hunters on the forums could give me a little insight into this.

 

As far as BM goes, I assume that mastery would be the best stat but after that I'm just not sure.

 

I hope to see some replys soon!

Play Beast Mastery with a Mastery build.

 

There's a CM section in the guide in my signature.

      Hi all,
      First, i'm french so sorry if my english is so bad xD
       
      I playing BM and MM spec according to the fights (principaly MM).
      I optimize my BM spec for some fights on NightHold and MM+ dungeons.
       
      I recently loot a relic 900 with Furious Swipes. I actually have a relic 880 with Pack Leader.
      For BM, i know iLV is less important than mastery or weapon's feature. But, in this case, the iLV boost is important (+20) so I doubt...
       
      Can you advise me to choose the best ? Max iLV or best feature ?
       
      Thank you in advance,

      Hi there,
      Long time lurker here with a new hunter alt. I initially wanted to ask a question why, as opener, AMoC is cast before Bestial Wrath. I would have thought a 25% damage increase on such a strong DoT would not be something to miss out on. However, halfway I realised that AMoC is probably considered a pet, and by casting it before BW, it too gets buffed by that. Am I correct in thinking this? If so, does that mean AMoC benefits from Titan's Thunder as well?
      Cheers,

      Union is an alliance guild on the PVE server Uldum, we are currently 7/7 Mythic EN and 2/3 Mythic ToV and looking to add one hunter to our ranks prior to Nighthold. Union has been around since Vanilla and has had the same core of raiders for years. We pride ourselves on raiding just 10 hours per week and being able to maintain a high US ranking throughout the last several expansions. We raid:

      Tuesday 8-11 EST (5-8 PST)
      Thursday 8-11 EST (5-8 PST)
      Sunday 7-11 EST (4-8 PST)

      We are looking for a player that not only parses high, but has good survival instincts and always comes prepared to each raid.

      Hit me up in game: Stormcaster#1629
      or jimmeh#1118

      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?...

      Hello, I raided back during WotLK and Cata with a resto druid.  Back then we aimed for certain percentages of haste so we could eventually obtain the 3 extra ticks in Rejuvenation, 2 in Regrowth, and 1 in Wild Growth.  After that threshold was met we then focused on Mastery. (but back then our HoT's didn't crit)  So my question is; Are these haste threshold's still something to be aiming for?  And if so, what are these threshold's?  Does haste still affect these spells the same way?  Are there goals to be aiming for with our secondary stats?  I've been gone for a few years and any help would be greatly appreciated.
