Major DPS Drop since Legion

8 posts in this topic

My first post here, and I hate it being one of complaint but I don't know where else to turn for advice right now, and that's what I am looking for, advice, I'm not just whining ;).

I'm an experienced BM and MM hunter pre-legion. My dps was running on average 50K as per recount. I went with the talents suggested here and am using the stat rotation but my MM dps has dropped to like 25K, 

I tried running on my BM and while I did experience a bit of a DPS drop, I think I can contribute most of it to my being slower and not "automatically" going to the proper next spell, which I was so used to doing that I could do it almost on autopilot without even thinking. I believe once I practice that will be fine.

However, such a drop really is killing me on MM and I always preferred to run MM when in raids so I don't have my pet get all dumb and cause trouble. 

Do you have any ideas what I maybe doing wrong? Is there something I could have missed?

DPS numbers for everyone are much lower than what they were before the patch.  It does come as a bit of a shock, but Hunters are still a very strong DPS class.  The new rotations will take a bit of getting used to, so don't fret too much.

I'm pushing 60K+ with pvp gear on my hunter.

 

The only way I see you having a Dps lose is probably rotation issues; if you have 4pc you might want to try waiting a second after each focus usage to save on focus. If you don't have 4pc then it might be haste issue. currently MM hunters have focus management issues resulting in downtime so figuring out a rotation that give you the lease downtime but also high enough dmg is a must. 

 

Currently I don't have 2/4pc and I go Barrage (opener), sidewinder, aim shot x2, marked shot, sidewinder, aim shot, with barrage on CD (can save for Aoe phase if it's a few seconds).

 

with 4pc i'd imagine it'll be something along the lines of, Barrage (opener and on CD), Marked shot (for rapid fire proc's), aimed shot x3 ( with some delay) sidewinder, repeat. 

The trick would be the delay between aimed shot to get x3 with not running out of vulnerability de-buff and focus, but you should be able to easily pull 60K+ doing something like that.

I had a DPS drop just like everyone but shawnyzz.  I found that I do far more damage with BM than MM, which is the opposite of damage before 7.0.3.

Recount indicates this is pretty much an across the board drop in dps, across all classes.

I don't agree at all.  I've been playing MM hunter all through this X-Pac and I actually saw an increase in my DPS since Legion patch. My hunter is sitting in 732iL gear with maxes ring and pre patch I was doing around 75kDPS on average.  Since patch I'm now pulling around 80-90kDPS on average sometimes hitting up to 110k DPS and on large mobs in HFC I can hit 360k up to even 600k DPS.  Check your rotation and for sure check your start priority since that did change but even with the stat change I have my starts for pre patch and I'm hitting those DPS levels. I don't think it's an issue with the patch changes, you have something set up wrong or you're doing something wrong.

I don't think it's an issue with the patch changes, you have something set up wrong or you're doing something wrong.  

Well, here's the thing:  I went from having 2 bosses where I was sub-110k dps (HFA and IR, never got a good parse on IR b/c guild rarely did full clears, and lol HFA) before the pre-patch to having 3 bosses where I broke 100k at all (Xhul, Tyrant, and Archimonde), 4 if you count my one >100k parse on Zakuun as BM.  This is at 740+ ilvl.  Sure on trash packs MM's dps went up through the roof, we passively cleave everything down without sacrificing anything for ST damage, but overall, yes, numbers went down quite a lot.

If you want proof:
Before Pre-patch

Post Pre-patch (make sure you're not just viewing a single spec).

      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time (CT)
      CURRENT PROGRESSION: 8/8N, 7/8H
      iLVL REQUIREMENT: 355 - 360+
       
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING
      Tank Healer DPS ABOUT US
      Currently looking for skilled and laid back raiders for Heroic and eventually Mythic Uldir.
      We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out.
      Players wanting just Mythic+ and a casual experience (no raiding) are welcomed!
      Fun guild events are scheduled every Saturday!
      TLDR; we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
      GOALS FOR BfA
      In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic. 
      This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.) 
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW
      - Mythic+ or Casual: Add me on Battle.net or whisper me in-game for an invite.
      - Raiders: Add me on Battle.net and fill out our app.

      Guild: Dawn of the Dead | http://www.dotd.org   Faction: Horde | Server: Zul'jin (PvE) | Timezone: EST   Current Progression: 4/8M Uldir   We've been raiding max size raids continuously since WoW has been released and are the only guild to have done so here on Zul'jin. We have strong leadership, no drama, and plans to keep raiding for years to come. Unlike many guilds, we're not recruiting for the short term, and we don't over-recruit.   Website: www.dotd.org
        Raid Times: Our schedule is 8-11 EST Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.   Needs: We are a small guild, and we expect high attendance. As such, we recruit people to raid, and desire people who can step in and contribute immediately. We don’t recruit people to sit around, so all spots are for raiders who can expect to be in most every raid.   We are currently looking to add skilled and reliable:   Ranged DPS:
      High: Warlock
      Medium: Mage, S.Priest, Boomkin
      1 Healer:
      High: MW Monk
      *ALL exceptional applicants will be considered regardless of the class.   What we ask of you:   Effort: Not all applicants come from highly progressed guilds, and that’s okay, but it does mean that you need to be prepared. We recruit the player, not the gear, but we do ask that you have some current experience and be a minimum iLvl of 370. You need to have the best gear available to you, (BoE, Crafted) with gems and top end enchants. You also need to be able to display an understanding of your class mechanics, role in a raid, and ability to learn new fights.   Attitude: It’s a game. We play for fun. How you fit in with the guild is taken very seriously. We’re a bunch of mostly 18-30 guys and girls who have fun playing together. While we have a good time, we also know when it’s time to buckle down and work hard.   Skill: The best way to determine skill is to see you in a raid. Because we don’t wish to have anyone transfer that we’re not serious about, be able to express your knowledge of your class and why you’re an exceptional player who would be an asset and is worth a shot. Gear will come with time. Skill will not. Impress us with your knowledge of your class and gameplay mechanics. Feel free to share any logs, theorycrafting, or other work you've done.   Commitment: We make a commitment to you, and ask you to do the same to us. A raid takes a team of more than 20 individuals working together. We rely on you to show up to raids, research your class and new fights, respect your fellow players, and notify us when you are unavailable. You rely on us for gear, experience, and coordination. It's a large investment of our time to train and gear new players, and we ask the same investment on your part so that we can each benefit.   We have a variety of informational resources available to prospective applicants on our web site: http://www.dotd.org-- please refer to our "Applications" forum for detailed information. Also feel free to visit us on WoWProgresss for more information and kill videos! http://www.wowprogress.com/guild/us/...wn+of+the+Dead   Should you wish to speak to someone in-game, please don't hesitate to reach out to an officer directly, whisper Xanah (Xana#1662) or Jeare (Jeare#1759).   We look forward to hearing from you soon!

      Looking for a casually serious progression guild? Hordeland Security could be your new home! We started at launch, and have raided on Blackhand, Baelgun, and now Turalyon. 

      We currently raid on Tuesdays and Thursdays 7:00- 9:15 Central Time. We understand that no one has an unlimited amount of time to play. We raid with a goal oriented focus, to achieve AotC in current content and then progress into Mythic. We also have a few that pvp, a few more that push M+'s, and we've been known do a few mog/achievement runs.
