Should I be holding my VoiT until after my first VB?

I know Void Torrent is my highest priority. But I feel like using first VB to make sure my dots get refreshed is more important.

Is it more important to max/min my insanity decay (Use VoiT instantly) or make sure my DOT uptime is maximized?

I'm doing the same, by the time I usually enter bioscience both dots are close to expiring. I always try for the void bolt too but I did manage to be too late with it sometimes. Nothing sux more than having to reapply dots while in voidform.

In my opinion, refresh your dots prior to entering Void Form if they're below 6-7 seconds. And don't burn Void Torrent or Mindbender right upon entering voidform - build up a few stacks first so the decay is actually noticeable. Then start rotating in cooldowns to stay in voidform longer. The whole idea is to maximize voidform uptime, and the longer you can stay in voidform, a) the more damage you can pump out due to increased haste, and b) the faster you'll get back into voidform once you drop. Basically i see each cast of voidform as a personal challenge to see how many stacks I can accrue before my insanity hits zero. 

The endgame being preparation for using Surrender to Madness, which is by far my favorite new ability in this expansion. My record so far (and this is at pre-110 gear levels, priest wasn't my first priority for leveling) is 34 stacks. StM triples your Insanity generation, so if I can manage insanity equally well I have the potential to sit in voidform for a good 60-90 seconds. That said, the additional haste from being in voidform for over a minute may make it that much easier to stay up. I've seen mediocre usage of this cooldown in heroics and it's still ridiculously powerful. Enough to outpace my 840 ilvl Demo lock's burst. And the guy was only in StM for about 25 seconds.

I've found that it varies on the fight. In fights where I instantly pop StM and I'm expecting the fight to last long enough for me to use VoiT twice if I time it right, I pop it almost instantly - possibly I Mind Blast first if my DoTs can stay up long enough.

For fights where I know I'll only get one VoiT off, I just hold off using it for as long as possible. Remember a lot of haste stacks makes it deal a lot more damage.

      I dont know why my dps is so low thought someone on here could help me

      Hi!
      I would like to ask somethng about ice lance and other procs aswell.
      To maximize dps, should you always try to get rid of Fingers of Frost procs with ice lances? And if you get flurry proc, do you want to get rid of ice lance procs before casting flurry + lance combo?
      I am not sure how much icicles and maximizing their damage output before dumping them affects your damage.
      Thank you

      Hello everyone.
       
      I've been playing hunter MM as my main for a while, but lately i've noticed that my DPS output might not be as high as it should. A couple of months ago, I tought it might be my ilvl or my mastery that was too low, but i've tried different builds and i still can't get closer to some other hunters I run into some ToS H pugs.
       
      I'm actually sitting at 938 iLvl. Don't have many BiS, but my stats are kinda high. My weapon relics are bad(low ilvl, i'm still stuck with 915 relics), and I still didn't get any other good legendary besides the Soul of the Huntmaster.
       
      So my question is: Am I doing something wrong or it's just my relics/trinkets that aren't very decent? I was happy when i get past the 1M dps mark, but now i'm stuck at that point, and I can't see to get past that.
       
      Here's my armory link: https://worldofwarcraft.com/pt-br/character/azralon/piccola
       
      Hopefully you guys can help me out on this. Thanks!

      When I started playing again after several years off, I chose the wrong weapon/artifact chain for my Ret Paladin.  I choose Truthguard instead of Ashbringer.  So I am at 105 with Truthguard now and I was told by Bliz several levels ago that I could swap weapons at some point although I was not told how or when. I don't use Truthguard in play now just a normal weapon and seem to do ok. What must I do?
      From Blizzard -  "I understand you are contacting us about your starting artifact weapon! I know it would be frustrating wanting to use Retribution and the Ashbringer and getting the Truth Guard by mistake. I made this same mistake on my Shaman. I was anxious to get the Doom Hammer and didn’t realize I was required to use the Enhancement spec. I do have some information to share with you.
      The bad news is, once an artifact is selected, there’s no changing that. Luckily, you’re not stuck with this forever. You’ll need to go through some of the story line with the Truth Guard, but once you hit level 102, you’ll be presented with the option to pick up the other 2 artifact weapons. From there you will be able to use any one you’d like. ^_^"

      Hi,
      I have a question: For the ascendance / gambler build the haste stat is on top of the priority list. Our trinket priority list shows that a static mastery stat increase via a trinket is higher on the priority than a static haste increase.
      How come? 
      Regards, Enqua
