Actual PAWN Strings for the Hunter

7 posts in this topic


I found this PAWN String here from http://www.noxxic.com/wow/pve/hunter/marksmanship/stat-priority/

( Pawn: v1: "PvE-Hunter-Marksmanship-Noxxic": 
	CritRating=3.03, MasteryRating=7.53, Agility=9.03, HasteRating=6.03, Versatility=4.53 )

( Pawn: v1: "Azor-Marksmanship": 
	CritRating=0.99, MasteryRating=1.34, Agility=1, HasteRating=1.08,  Versatility=0.91, 
	Dps=3.26, RangedDps=3.26 ) 

But I do not know if this is still correct. The update date on the String from Azortharion  (http://pastebin.com/EpdZ5Y3D)  from the Stats Page (http://www.icy-veins.com/wow/marksmanship-hunter-pve-dps-stat-priority)  looks rather old. Do you have any new strings or any recommendations?


Comparing the two Strings they differ a lot. So my question is, which is more correct?

Thanks for your input.

Noxxic is not a reliable source, and I would not trust anything from it.  Azor's pawn string might seem old because of the date when the string was originally created, but it is kept up to date (pastebin doesn't list a last update date for pastes unfortunately) and is the best string for Marksmanship.

The one in the guide is correct, just like it was the last time this came up.

I don't know why AMR does what it does.

the guide has mastery above haste for sv, but the pawn string has mastery half as good as haste

Generally, Azor's pawn strings are faster to update than the site.

For his strings, he can simply edit the data very quickly. For the site, it takes time for changes to be implemented.

      According to Azortharion simulations, our best for Antorus will be Qapla/Soul+Dire Frenzy/OWTP , ¿what stats need this build? At this moment, we need Mastery/Haste for Dire Frenzy build and Critical/Haste for OWTP build: therefore, they are mutually exclusive, right?  Or at least I understand that.
      So, ¿what stats?

      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration

      Looking for some advice about how to improve my DPS - I should be doing better than this I feel (using stomp build). My guild only raided NH HC and I got to the point where new gear was out-doing the 2pc 895 tier 19 set I had, which is why I'm not using 2pc tier 19 atm. If this was the wrong choice and I'm better dropping my ilevel to go back to it please let me know. I have most BM Leggos so again if I'm using the wrong combo please advise me. I would like to tweak my stats but not sure what gear would do me better than what I have. Any help you can give me would be so much appreciated.

      Thanks in advance.

      Hey all, Im new to survival hunter, i used to play bm/mm before, and with them i never really worried about what pet to use. With bm i just went with a random spirit beast and with mm i run the Lone Wolf talent. I get that the whole point of choosing a pet in survival is which will give to more procs of Mastery: Hunting Companion. Here's my question. Does a carrion bird's Bloody Screech and a tank pet's Thunderstomp have a chance to proc an addition charge of mongoose bite? and would Thunderstomp be more effective than Ferocity spec's Spiked Collar in procing mongoose bite?

      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!
